Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater!

31st October saw the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. In the run up to it, the BBC put on a drama called Gunpowder. Rather than remind us of what the Reformation was about, they decided to recreate gut-wrenching scenes of Roman Catholic sympathisers being tortured by Protestants.

There's no doubt that the treatment of Roman Catholics was appalling. What sinful men and women did, and do, in the name of religion is always to be condemned. But anyone with an ounce of wisdom can see that such brutality has nothing to do with Jesus Christ, nor the gospel message of the Bible. So it's really unhelpful to stir up old divisions like this, and also be in danger of throwing the baby out with the bath water.

God wants you to be wealthy

There's no virtue in being poor. Sometimes the church has given the impression that to be very godly we must take a vow of poverty. No wonder some people think of God as mean and boring.

Will you live?

How long can you go before you feel hungry? Famished? Starving? How long before you starve to death? Doctors say it's something between 45-60 days.
