Friday Jan 26, 2024

In this special episode we talk to Aaron Edwards, who describes himself as a ‘theologian in academic exile’ after losing his job at a theological college following his now infamous tweet expressing a Biblical view on sexuality. We discuss the importance of being ‘shamelessly biblical’, the dangers of cowardice in the church, the term ‘outrageous grace’ and why many controversial issues we face in our western culture are indeed gospel issues. We hope this will be a challenging and encouraging episode for all of our listeners.

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.

We finish with a warning from Jesus in Matthew 18:6.

In this special episode we speak to Dave Brennan from Brephos, a project committed to helping churches respond to abortion. This is a sensitive but important subject, and we look at the realities of abortion, the Biblical theology of the unborn, why the church needs to talk about abortion, and the ethics around the use of cell lines from aborted babies (including in the development of the COVID vaccines). We end with a reminder of the hope which the gospel of Christ offers, a gospel which is big enough to speak into the pain of abortion, and the reality of God’s grace.
