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 episode we discuss a few examples of ‘Christian celebrities’ in the news, the ‘Lausanne movement’ and the dangers of the promotion of ‘Christian unity’ at the expense of doctrine. We have a look at the Christian media and the need to apply critical thinking to their output as well as that of mainstream media. We focus in on Premier Christianity and some example articles, showing the need to pursue truth and be discerning so we are not deceived. We finish with suggestions of smaller Christian media outlets, and a reading from Revelation 3:14-22 where Jesus warns against being neither cold nor hot.

Episode 48 - DisPutin?

Sunday Feb 11, 2024

Sunday Feb 11, 2024

In this episode we re-visit the controversy surrounding Christian leader Alistair Begg’s recent advice about attending a ‘transgender wedding’, and we take a quick look at another controversy involving Canterbury Cathedral and silent discos. We then spend some time reviewing Tucker Carlson’s now infamous interview with Vladimir Putin. This raised a number of issues including history, NATO expansion, negotiations for settlement, Russian expansionism, the war-mongering of the West, the role of the media and the importance of seeking after truth. We finish with a reading from James 3:13-18 which reminds us to seek God’s wisdom and not the ‘wisdom’ offered by the world.

Episode 44 - Taking a stand

Wednesday Dec 13, 2023

Wednesday Dec 13, 2023

In this episode we discuss the official UK Covid Inquiry, and contrast it with Andrew Bridgen’s impressive effort to convene an expert testimony panel. We consider the ongoing issue of excess deaths and why this is not being investigated with urgency. We look at the cost of taking a stand and speaking out for truth, and the dangers of staying silent. We finish with a mention of the ongoing situation in Israel and Gaza, and the COP 28 deliberations which included statements from the Archbishop of Canterbury and King Charles. Finally, a reminder from Psalm 24 that the earth is the Lord’s and everything in it!

Episode 41 - No replacement

Thursday Oct 19, 2023

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 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.
