Level 42: Lessons in Love

I found a great video of one of my favorite songs from this group of aging rockers. Did I ever mention that I was at the same school as keyboard player Mike Lindup – though obviously he was a lot older than me! (well, about a year older, anyway)

Guy Fawkes

A Plot to Overthrow the Government

It was a terrorist plot, that would have struck at the heart of government, had it succeeded, and would have set back the cause of freedom and religious liberty by a century. Or maybe you take the opposite view – because one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter. The Head of State was due…

Let the Lion Roar

Let the Lion Roar

A Review I am minded that David Pawson, in his book “Defending Christian Zionism”, has noted two extremes of theology regarding Israel. The first is found among certain, though not all, dispensationalists. This is a view known as dual covenant. It teaches that the Jews will be saved simply because they are Jews. Therefore, there…

Poppy Appeal 2014

This year’s Poppy Appeal by the Royal British Legion is particularly poignant, it is the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. The 1914-1918 War was, of course, the war that was supposed to end all wars. Yet, several wars later, British and American servicemen are still giving their lives in the…

As the new director of the 7 Wonders Creation Museum, at Silverlake, WA (on the road to Mount St Helens) I have put together a new website for the center. It is at 7wondersmuseum.org – though if you forget the .org and use either .com or .net, you will find that they will divert to…

Geri and I will shortly be taking over as directors of the 7 Wonders Creation Museum on the road to Mount St Helens in Washington State. The current directors, Lloyd…

Pastor Owen Dando

A Mighty Man of God

Do you recognize this man? Those of you in South Wales will certainly recognize him, but few others will. Yet his passionate work for God over many, many decades will bear much fruit. Pastor Owen Dando died a few hours ago. In this Internet age, I heard about his death through a friend on Facebook.…

The Lego Movie

The Lego Movie is Awesome!

We rented the Lego Movie from Redbox tonight. I have not laughed so much during a “kids’ movie” since the first Shrek movie! I loved it. Of course, it isn’t really a kids’ movie – though kids can enjoy it. But the levels of sarcasm and irony are simply hilarious. Here’s the theme song from…

Walking the Dog

It features comment on creation, evolution, Genesis, apologetics, and anything else that randomly occurs to Paul. In this episode, Paul rambles on about the New Testament teaching on the charismatic gifts. He shows that the cessationist…

Isis in Mosul

A New Symbol of Persecution

A new symbol for Christianity has emerged in recent weeks. It is the Arabic letter nūn. I am hesitant to use it, because there may be a sense in which it is becoming “cool”. But those who are marked by it in Iraq cannot view it as a cool symbol. Nasrani The Arabic letter nūn…
