Now we’ve done it. It’s a controversy-cast. Editor-in-chief Richard Clark and associate editor Ben Bartlett bit the bullet and tackled the three most controversial issues from the last few weeks. Hopefully if you’re listening to this podcast that means you’ll hear us out as we struggle to make sense of one of the most horrific tragedies we’ve seen in a while (and why it was seemingly ignored), as we discuss the affect sexual immorality has on our faith, and as we seek to deconstruct and make sense of Brad Paisley and L.L. Cool J’s magnum opus, “Accidental Racist”.

Faithful pastors like Spurgeon did not remain silent: “…the truth as to war must be more and more insisted on: the loss of time, labour, treasure, and life must be shown, and the satanic crimes to which it leads must be laid bare. It is the sum of all villainies, and ought to be stripped of its flaunting colours, and to have its bloody horrors revealed; its music should be hushed, that men may hear the moans and groans, the cries and shrieks of dying men and ravished women….”
