What Kind of church?

People often ask me what kind of church I go to. I found a great quote on the Sovreign grace website describing their Mission and Motive which could equally well be said of the church family I love to be a part of which like the group previously known as PDI is growing in many nations around the world. "Our combination of essentially Reformed doctrine and biblically based charismatic practice, plus an emphasis on personal relationships within churches and among pastoral teams, translates well … [Read more...]

For your eyes only…….

This modesty check is a great catelogue of everything a man ever remembers noticing about a womans clothing.If as a woman you are serious about men not oogling you then this makes great reading.

Of course these days in our society you can barely walk down the street for thirty seconds without being … [Read more...]

Is John's gospel venomous?

Should I burn the two hundred copies of Johns gospel that arrived more than a year late at my house today? Should I rather offer them free to any reader who emails asking to see wether John is as 'antisemitic' as this writer claims?The trouble is people cant seem to separate believing that indeed the Jews were responsible for the death of Jesus with a belief that Jews today should therefore be victimised.

Train madness

Travelling on a train today I once again experienced something which visitors to the land of my birth often marvell at. Silence. It is amazing really, to be surrounded by tens of people and all that you can hear is the noise of the trains. Even friends will suddenly stop talking to each other as they enter the train. Silence rules with most staring into space like dementia sufferers. The rustling of paper caused by the few who like to read barely disturbs the peace.If you dare to ask … [Read more...]

Male contraceptive "100%" safe and effective

Male contraceptive "100%" safe and effective: "The trial used the progestin, DMPA, and testosterone to flick a reversible 'switch' in the brain that initiates puberty, causing the body to stop sperm production. The testosterone also ensured male health and libido, countering the progestin, which causes natural levels of the male hormone to fall. Some participants in the trial even reported an increase in their libido, and once they came off the trial participants found that their fertility … [Read more...]
