The Passion is here (or at least in the US!)

blogs4God is listing all the differing Passion reviews (it has been sold-out). I love the paradox that Christians are promoting a film that in the UK will be an 18! I am a bit sad that I cannot really wade into these discussions as in the UK we still await our opportunity to view it. But view it I will, and once all my blogging friends are bored of it I will no doubt decide which side of the fence I am on! … [Read more...]

The Lord of the Rings – Return of the King

Having allowed my whole family to watch the new Lord of the Rings film I asked Henry, What did you learn from the Lord of the rings?Henry's answer- 'Not to go out on my own'Well, I guess thats one function of letting kids see depictions of evil!

Time to stop killing babies

Another prolife step: "Wisconsin now has a Born Alive Infants Protection Act that offers babies who survive an attempted abortion the same legal rights as other children. Signed into law last week, the Act gained support after articles described incidents such as one involving a 23-week infant born alive after an abortion and placed in a specimen dish to be taken to the lab, where she died three hours later."This kind of development is wonderful. The thought of a baby being left to slowly die … [Read more...]

Whatever Happened to the Brethren?

Their desire was to base church practice on the Bible, rather than on the traditions of a particular denomination. Key early Brethren leaders included J N Darby, A. N. Groves, and George Muller. Some of the distinctives of the Brethren … [Read more...]

Is American as Christian as she makes out?

Barna Research Online reports less than four per cent of Americans have a biblical worldview which was defined: "as believing that absolute moral truths exist; that such truth is defined by the Bible; and firm belief in six specific religious views. Those views were that Jesus Christ lived a sinless life; God is the all-powerful and all-knowing Creator of the universe and He stills rules it today; salvation is a gift from God and cannot be earned; Satan is real; a Christian has a responsibility … [Read more...]
