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 […]
Perhaps I should start renaming this blog “the Williams files”. But, to be frank, once you start looking at what this man actually says in the public arena the more disappointed Christians, and especially Anglicans, should be. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams‘, latest public speaking event was a series a dialogues at St Paul’s […]
2 new pieces on the website. Saved by Grace Alone, a sermon preached at Charis‘s baptism, 12 September 2004. The doctrine of the divinity of the Holy Spirit in the early church, a recent essay at college.
Courtesy of my little girl, I present to you Augoostine, the Orthoduck. Augoostine will be making a regular appearance around our favourite LJ circles, as we learn about the various heresies that have beset the church from time to time (as it was, it is, and evermore shall be – let the hearer understand).
For those of you who are interested, please do take the time to work through the latest drivel from the Archbishop of Canterbury, this time his Address at al-Azhar al-Sharif, Cairo. 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 […]
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. […]
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 […]
so, my first introduction to rampant ad homineming combined with a total lack of engagement with any argument put forward. norwegian_wood complains that she’s not allowed to join even though she freely admits that she’s only there to tell them (in not so polite terms) how she disagrees with them. So I (perhaps foolishly) decide […]
Tonight Charis had her first solids. A lovely few teaspoons of rice cereal. But, clearly, that wasn’t solid enough for her…
This is simply too good to be true.
