Windsor Report

Well, we’ve had a while to read it over. What do we make of it? Rather than jumping in let’s consider what the main protagonist, Frank Griswold, (presiding bishop of ECUSA) has to say in response. Although this is an initial response it makes it clear where he’s going to go. Taken from here. The […]

interesting…

MSN Today comes up as I log in and I find that the headline is “Getting an Abortion“. So, for the first time in months, rather than closing the box down I click on the link. To be fair, it’s about as open-minded a page as you could get. The options (keep, adopt, abort) are […]

I say ‘drivel’, because he has, in his eagerness to tell Islam that we really believe in the same God, lapsed into both Modalism and […]

Rowan Williams and the Sovereignty of God

I write this after listening to Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury talk about the tragic events at the school in South Russia. You can hear the full interview for the BBC Sunday programme here. It’s a fascinating conversation because it reveals the impossible position those that don’t believe in the absolute sovereignty of God get into. […]

save my sanity

ACK!!!! I’ve been reading all day for my essay “What were the cicumstances in early Christianity that led to a definition of the full divinity of the Holy Spirit? What were the implications of this definition for Christian apologetics?” My brain hurts. I’ve soaked up so much. To be fair, I’ve learnt a shed-load. Most […]
