In this episode we briefly discuss a few topical issues including excess deaths, legal action against Astra Zeneca, pro-Palestine marches and the sad death of baby Indi Gregory. We then focus on the issue of PHSE education (Personal, Social, Health & Economic) in schools. We discuss the ideologies and deceptions it promotes, the dangers it poses to children, the importance of Christian teaching and influence on children, and how we can all have a role in that. We finish with a warning from Jesus in Matthew 18:6.

Episode 41 - No replacement

Thursday Oct 19, 2023

In this episode we discuss the unfolding situation following the recent attacks by Hamas on Israel, and why it is important to approach the issue with a Biblical worldview. We talk about the way the conflict has been portrayed in the mainstream media, and the tensions which have arisen within the ‘awake’ arena. We conclude with a focus on the Bible and how God speaks through it to us today, and a reminder from the beginning of Romans that both the gospel and God’s judgment are first for the Jew and then for the Gentile, with salvation only through faith in Jesus.

In this episode we take a little break from considering issues going on in the world, to have a think about our Christian stories and experiences and how these have shaped our critical thinking. We discuss how we have grown in our faith and dependence on God, and how important it is to daily take up our cross and follow Jesus. We hope this will be both a challenge and an encouragement.

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!

Sunday Jul 23, 2023

In this episode we discuss a few topics which have been in the news. We look at people who have being ‘cancelled’ for expressing political or Christian views and for challenging prevailing ideologies. We talk about climate obsession in the Church and the on-going agenda in the media against meat-eating. We end with discussion on efforts to restrict or ban prayer which mean we are not only losing freedom of speech but even freedom of thought. Our closing scripture is 1 John 4:5-6 which reminds us how to know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.

In this episode we discuss Pride ideology, gender identity and their promotion in schools. From a brief history of the Pride movement and its flags, to how transgenderism has its roots in Gnosticism, we ask how we should approach these issues as Christians and the challenges we may face. As ever, God's Word has the last word!

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 discuss the case of a teacher banned from the profession for 'misgendering' a pupil, and the extent of the gender ideology, sexually explicit material and 'woke morality' being 'taught' in schools and the harm to children it is causing. We also revisit the issue of 'excess deaths' which continue to be a significant reality here and across many western countries, yet barely mentioned by the mainstream media. Finally, we highlight our recent interview with Nick Franks and read a very relevant piece from his challenging new book 'The Glorious Few'.

In this episode we chat to special guest Nick Franks. Nick carries a prophetic burden for maturity in the Church expressed through repentance and preparation for the return of Christ. We discuss some of the key challenges that face the western Church and the urgent need to be radical in light of Nick's new book, The Glorious Few. It's our hope that you will be encouraged, challenged and spurred on by this episode. In addition to writing, Nick runs the excellent podcast, Into the Pray, with his wife Mairi.
