kickstarter campaign for a young Christian movie director

Hi Folks I work for a christian national radio/tv station in New Zealand, and one of our talented staff is raising money to make a movie. He has one week to go and needs about $5000NZD (USD$3000 approx) more to buy the equipment he needs. He will be doing this in his spare time, but has already done a few films in a similar vein which have been submitted to go to various film festivals. This movie will have Christian themes and messages in it, but the idea is that it will appeal to people generally. If you are


The Hardened individual

The Church has frequently ignored that Paul considered the heart to be ametanoetos, incapable of repentance: therefore the Church often zealously requires the individual to repent.But because the heart is ametanoetos, Paul was an evangelist, rather than a preacher of repentance. Hence he was able to bring the individual into relationship with Jesus and thereby implanted in his heart that which is new, which broke apart the old thought constructs and resisted the old pattern of volition Adolf Schlatter: Romans, The Righteousness of God. Schlatter talks about the difference between the prophet, and the evangelist. The evangelist is the one who lives

believe without a reason

I was listening to the Michael W Smith song “Missing Person today, and I was struck by the line: And like a child he would believe without a reason I find this more than just a little bit annoying. Firstly, its a misuse of what Jesus says in Matthew about “becoming like a child”. This means to unlearn everything the world has taught you to value, and to relearn how to live in the kingdom of God. Secondly, How can you “believe without a reason”? There is no possible way you can believe something without a reason. At the

Creation Ministries and Oscar Pistorius

Many of you wont know about Oscar Pistorius, you can read up on him here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscar_Pistorius Its been a quite interesting case with many experts giving evidence. What’s also quite interesting is an article on creation.com where they detail the various kinds of evidence and some of the issues with it. The crux of their argument being that even experts disagree on evidence, which they are able to reproduce, and measure scientifically.   The problem is that whilst the CMI might consider themselves experts, they are not. They are “people who have an interest in firing guns” and not “ballistic


Creationism no longer science in UK schools

Apparently, creationism is no longer allowed to be taught as science in UK schools, which is all well and good, but I hope they still teach about it, so that kids will have the information in order to decide for themselves. You dont have to teach it as science – because it is not, its theology, but you do have to explain it as one of the major historical metaphysical understandings of how the world began. Of course, lefties dont really want people reflecting on philosophy, in case they learn what a crock they are being fed.http://io9.com/teaching-creationism-as-science-now-banned-in-all-uk-pu-1592549647

I wish you enough.

“I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.”


The old and the new

I heard some guy spouting off the other day, about how he was “lukewarm” and that God was going to “spit him out of his mouth”. He was really quite worried and he was going to all these prayer meetings and charismatic meetings in order to “find his first love” so he could be “on fire” again. Now, I’ve been there, and I know, it’s quite scary. The reality is though, that is not what Jesus is saying to the Church in Laodicea.  The problem is, taken out of context, the whole bible context, it can be made to
