If Loving God Was a Crime

Coming soon to an intolerant government near you.

BTW, if anyone has access to the original video for this song then I'd love to see it!

Kindle Meltdown

Closed my Kindle after a cup of tea in the canteen, next time I open it the Kindle is unresponsive, nothing! Plug in the usb power cable and still nothing, laptop doesn't even recognise it. Not good.

A quick search of the internet reveals lots of info about recharging the battery for 30 mins but my Kindle won't connect via the usb.

Review: This Is My Body: Ekklesia as God Intended

This Is My Body: Ekklesia as God Intended by Keith Giles

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



A simply written and very readable book from Giles which I will give 5 stars to simply because it makes you think. On nearly every page you can feel a 'yes, but...' moment growing in your head which you often find the answer to later on. If you don't then you know where to look and hopefully find the answer.

This book makes some very good arguments for the simplicity of the 'house church' and the ministry of all believers. If you have issues with traditional religion or the 'business model' of some churches then this book will strike a chord with you.

Excellent article on Dr TL Osborn at Charisma.

Regressive Progressive

My quote for the day!

Loving God  Ain't it just so?


Free Speech

A good quote via Neil Addison at his Religion Law Blog.

Free speech includes not only the inoffensive but the irritating, the contentious, the eccentric, the heretical, the unwelcome and the provocative provided it does not tend to provoke violence. Freedom only to speak inoffensively is not worth having.  So said Lord Justice Sedley.

Unfortunately there are people about who would like to shut down debate by means fair or foul on certain subjects.

An Appropriate Time

Seems an appropriate time for me to post this ancient pic of me when I were a lad.

Congratulations to Manchester City!

Advertising Standards Authority “persecutes Cranmer”

Not many things on the world wide web surprise or even shock me but what happened to the blogger linked below did


http://www.archbishop-cranmer.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/advertising-standards-authority.html

when he put the following image on his website.



Archbishop Cranmer or @His_Grace on twitter is well known as a conservative Anglican and as such puts forward a robust defence of what he sees as the tenets of Christianity and the Church of England. As expected he occassionally posts on subjects around marriage, especially the concept of marriage as betwen one woman, one man, indivisible and for life.

So it was not unexpected that His Grace might well put links to the Coalition for Marriage website on his own site.


 As their site says:
The Coalition for Marriage is an umbrella group of individuals and organisations in the UK that support traditional marriage and oppose any plans to redefine it.
The Coalition is backed by politicians, lawyers, academics and religious leaders. It reache…
