Covid 19

Episodes

5 days ago

In this episode we consider the failings of the UK covid-19 inquiry and its postponement of the module on vaccines and therapeutics, and the response to this from a group of highly qualified experts and medics who have convened a People’s Vaccine Inquiry. We also discuss the upcoming UK election in light of a recent survey by the Evangelical Alliance which gives some interesting insight into the thinking of ‘evangelical’ Christians in the UK. We finish with the need to acknowledge reality and take encouragement from Colossians 2:6-10.

In this special episode we talk with Dr Clare Craig who is a diagnostic pathologist and Co-Chair of the HART Group. We discuss how Clare came to question the covid narrative in the summer of 2020 and the response she received when she started to speak out about her concerns. We talk about covid measures, the vaccine roll-out and why many medics have failed to question the mainstream narrative. We also discuss the importance of waking up from ‘cloud covid land’ and Clare’s spiritual journey and resulting Christian faith.

In this special episode we speak with Professor Norman Fenton, Emeritus Professor of Risk at Queen Mary University of London. Norman has been a beacon of critical thinking through the last few years, bringing clarity, reasoned analysis and compelling evidence to issues around covid and net zero, and at some considerable personal cost. We discuss his work highlighting issues around covid testing, vaccination and excess deaths. We then discuss his recent concerns about anti-semitism in the ‘Freedom Movement’, and his personal insights as a Jew with many family links to Israel. We conclude with the need for more understanding of the complexities of the history of Israel, including for Christians, and the importance of standing against anti-semitism.

Luke describes the unique nature and perspective of the channel and the listeners it attracts. We discuss the challenges of church life within the reality of a hostile culture, woke and progressive influences, and how we can navigate these. We hope that you will be informed, challenged and encouraged by this interview. Do have a look at the links below for Luke’s channel and discord community.

In this episode we look at a few issues in the news including the possibility of a covid resurgence and return to masks, Christian Climate Action urging charities to boycott Barclays Bank, and a new network of scientists resisting the climate crisis narrative: The World Climate Declaration. We discuss the importance of being ready to answer difficult questions as Christians, in the light of singer Lauren Daigle’s failure to do so, and we review Jonathan Pageau’s very helpful explanation of the notion of conspiracy theories. We finish with some thoughts on the war in Ukraine, understanding the complexity of the situation and the role the West has played in fuelling the conflict instead of seeking peace. Our Bible passage 1 John 5:18-20 leaves us with a warning and an encouragement!

In this week's episode we have a look at some interesting things that have come to light in recent news, including weather warnings, lockdowns don't work (no surprise there), WHO Global Digital Health Certificates, 'BBC Verify' and Universal Basic Income trials. We also have a think about 'Pride month' and its increasing grip on society. We finish with a bit of reflection on Psalm 40:1-5 with a reminder to look to God and all his wonders.

In this episode we consider the term ‘conspiracy theory’ and ask whether the events of the last three years around covid have been due to ‘cockup’ or ‘conspiracy’. We look at what the Bible has to say to us on the nature of evil and how that relates to the world we live in today where global organisations, networks and ideologies are a reality.

In this episode we look at the issue of ‘revival’ and repentance. We also discuss the recent decision in the Church of England to introduce the ‘blessing’ of same-sex relationships, and the suspension of a lecturer at a theological college for expressing orthodox Christian views on homosexuality. We end with a look at some of the pandemic truths reaching the mainstream media, and a reminder to contend for the faith entrusted to us.

Thursday Dec 29, 2022

In this episode we have a look back over the significant events and hot topics of 2022. We also mention a few heroes of the year who have made a stand for truth, called those in power to account, been willing to pay the price for speaking out and have taken the narrow and difficult path. As we look forward to 2023 we draw wisdom from Ephesians 6 which tells us how to stand firm in our faith, and we wish you all a Happy New Year!
Note: We said war in Ukraine started Thu 20 Feb, we meant Thu 24 Feb.

In this episode we consider the recent speech made in the House of Commons by Andrew Bridgen MP, calling for a halt to the covid vaccine roll-out due to the mounting evidence of harms caused by adverse reactions. He said the mRNA vaccines are not safe, not effective and not necessary. Is this true, and if so why is it not being reported in the mainstream media and what should our response as Christians be?

Saturday Nov 19, 2022

Saturday Nov 19, 2022

In this episode we look at an article in The Atlantic calling for a ‘pandemic amnesty’. We consider the issues of forgiveness, accountability, justice, truth and wisdom. Is it time to ‘move on’ or are there lessons to learn and important questions to address?
