Another 'non intellectual' evangelical blogger.

the evangelical outpost is talking about Breaking Out of the Evangelical Ghetto and how liberals seem to think we have no brain cells to rub together. Well, you can add my name to the list of evangelical bloggers. I am a medic, who has got specialist degree (member of the royal college of psychiatrists) and now work in the commercial world. Of course that is no proof of intelligence- I ought to have learnt how to programme a computer really if I wanted to make serious money in the last few … [Read more...]

Where do you look for happiness?

Since man fell in the garden, he has too often sought for his enjoyments where the serpent finds his. (SPurgeon)It is unfortunate that many people think being a Christian involves running away from joy. Many believe that having fun is somehow ungodly.

The day that Christmas carols fell foul of the PC brigade

Whatever next?!?! The Telegraph reports that it is no longer ok in one part of the UK to advertise a carol service: "'I am quite dismayed by this. I was told that if it was simply a carol service it might have been OK. But because it was a service with an act of worship it was not. What is the difference? The singing of carols is an act of worship.'" … [Read more...]

The Obvious- or is it?

I want to talk about one of my favorite blogs tonight. Its written by a chap who seems to struggle with the idea that he and I could have anything in common. He speaks a lot in his blog about blogging bringing people together and causing us to re-examine things. But it seems I am not one of those people he wants to be brought close to!The Obvious? is written by a man who is clearly interested in what you might call spirtual questions. Take his tagline quote for example "All day I think … [Read more...]

Old habits die hard

Ming the Mechanic: "An old rigid civilization is reluctantly dying. Something new, open, free and exciting is waking up." HE speaks presumably about the web, blogging, the open source movement and the potential we might all start actually working together for the common good- shocking thought!Maybe I am a skeptic, but although I can see pockets of such co-working happening, I fear that we will not get there quite so easily. The nature of man is to be selfish. How can he change that and … [Read more...]
