O Holy Night - Beautiful!

This is one of my favourite Carols and this version is just amazingly beautiful with the lovely voices of the Celtic Ladies, the Choir and the Orchestra. Enjoy and listen to the words!

Hallelujah - Which Version?
2008-12-16 11:11:00
I was lying in bed yesterday when I heard from downstairs a song I recognised but a version a didn't. Yes it was the X-Factor winners version of Leonard Cohen's song Hallelujah . Personally I am a great fan of the definitive version, in my view, by Jeff Buckley. Buckley's voice here is perfect for such a song with the raw emotion he manages to muster. Now this is song everyone knows, or at least has heard somewhere along the way. However if you listen to the lyrics you find that what the song is about is not what the melody itself would bring out. It is a very catchy chorus that seems quite positive. Hallelujah means 'Praise the Lord' after all. However it is a deeply subversive song about emotional and sexual torment and even violence among other things. Very cleverly written by Cohen. This leads me on to the X-Factor version. Well all I can say is: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrggggggggg hhhhhhhhhhhh! Another clone comes out of the manufactured pop factory of Simon Cowell an...

Been Quiet of late - Little Inspiration but Merry Christmas to all!
2008-12-12 12:37:00
I have been really struggling to write anything recently. I have been moved/angered by much in the news and personally but have had little inspiration to write it down. My creativity has upped and left. I have been so busy with life, Marriage, Working, running a Cell Group, Worship Team and Christmas event that I have no apparent time to write anything of length and depth except the odd review and video link.I hope to get back into the swing of it next year. I will be tackling the subject of Election/Predestination in my Cell Group in the series from Wayne Grudems book. That should be fun and will post my thoughts on that early next year.In the mean time if I post nothing more this year then have a great Christmas and remember what it is really about! The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel? which means, God with us. Matthew 1:23"...you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great a...

What is Man?/What is Sin?
2008-11-17 17:10:00
Here is another two titles in the series that we are studying in my home group going through Wayne Grudems Book: Christian Beliefs 'twenty basics every Christian should know': All scripture quoted is NIV.   What is Man? After God created the plants and animals on earth he created the pinnacle of his creation: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground. (Genesis 1:27-28) God did not create us because he was lacking or needing anything. He was not lonely, nor did he need someone or something to praise and glorify Him. But he still chose to create us and we do give him glory. everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made (Isaiah 43:7) This fact is supposed to giv...

Casting Crowns Gig - Queens Theatre, Stoke
2008-11-07 17:57:00
I had the privilege of seeing Casting Crowns live on the 1st November at the Queens Theatre in Stoke on Trent. The fact I live in Sussex near the south coast may give you an idea of how much I wanted to see them. I rarely drive 3.5 hours for 200 miles to see a band play. I have really only discovered them as listening experience this year. I had been previously only aware of them without knowing their music. I now rate them as one of my favourite bands. I find Mark Halls lyrics to be so honest and they cut right to the heart of whatever he is writing about, be it struggles with the Christian life or kicking Christians up the backside to be more true to the word of God and less wordly. Anyway I just wanted to say they are fantastic live. Very open and direct about their faith and plainly love worshipping God during their gigs. A blessing indeed! If you ever get the chance to hear them live don't miss it. I also liked YFriday who supported them. More a straight worship band but grea...

There is probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life?
2008-10-22 17:41:00
That title is what will be appearing on the sides of London buses shortly. This advertising campaign is sponsored by the British Humanist Association.'There is probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life!'It is hardly suprising that they got a reasonable amount of money from supporters, including my 'favorite' atheist Richard Dawkins .And Richard, bless him, has been spouting his usual nonsense about "thinking is anathema to religion". Which of course is plainly wrong and utter rubbish. I challenge anyone to prove otherwise! But Dawkins thinks anyone who disagrees with him has faulty thinking so hardly surprising.I agree with this article where the writer believes this campaign will actually benefit 'religion'.The 'probably' says it all. They cannot be sure about it or they are just trying to be a bit PC rather than stating 'there is no God'. Don't lay the message on too thick to start with. However if it gets people thinking and talking about it that can only b...

Prayer for a Friend
2008-10-15 13:38:00
I think the lyrics say it all. I won't say any more about who or why but once again Casting Crowns lyrics express what I want to say: Lord, I lift my friend to You, I've done all that I know to do I lift my friend to YouComplicated circumstances have clouded his viewLord, I lift my friend up to YouI fear that I won't have the words that he needs to hearI pray for Your wisdom, oh God, and a heart that's sincereLord, I lift my friend up to YouLord, I lift my friend to YouMy best friend in the world, I know he means much more to YouI want so much to help him, but this is something he has to doAnd Lord, I lift my friend up to You'cause there's a way that seems so right to himBut You know where that leadsHe's becoming a puppet of the world,too blind to see the stringsLord, I lift my friend up to YouMy friend up to YouLord, I lift my friend to You, I've done all that I know to doI lift my friend to You ( (c) Casting Crowns/The Altar and the Door)

What is God Like?
2008-10-12 22:00:00
Here is the second in a series we have been looking at in my Cell Group. Again taken from The Wayne Grudem book: Christian Beliefs 'twenty basics every Christian should know': All scripture quoted is NIV.   As Scripture is the highest source of information about itself so is God the highest source of information about Himself since any higher source would be above God and God wouldn?t be God. So what does God say about himself in scripture? God Exists Scripture simply assumes God exists. The first verse of the Bible ? ?In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth? (Genesis 1:1). Scripture also tells us that all persons have a deep sense that God exists, that they are his creatures and He is their creator. Romans 1:19 ?since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them?. Although many today deny He exists because as Paul says in Romans 1:25 ?They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things r...

What is The Bible - A Study
2008-09-25 11:11:00
Below is the first in a series of studies we are doing in my Cell Group taken from the Following book Wayne Grudem - Christian Beliefs 'twenty basics every christian should know':What is the Bible ?If we are looking at any single Christian belief it should be based on what God says about the subject. So as we start the series on some basic Christian beliefs it makes sense to start with the basis for those beliefs, God?s word, the Bible. Q: What are your views of scripture? What is it? Q: Why is it important that the Bible be the basis for our beliefs? The Bible speaks thoroughly about itself and it tells us what God thinks about his very words. This can be broken down into four general categories: Authority, Clarity, Necessity and Sufficiency. The Authority of the BibleAll the words in the Bible are God?s words. Therefore to disbelieve them or disobey them is to disbelieve or disobey God himself. Many passages in scripture begin with ?Thus says the Lord? (Exodus 4:22, Joshua 24:2, ...

Men, their Caves, their Emotions and a whole lot of Internet searches!
2008-09-19 12:22:00
I have been taking note again recently about how people come to visit my little piece of Cyber Space. My Stats counter records what link or search people enter this blog from. It has continued to surprise me how many people search on the following terms. This is over the space of about two weeks:men and their cavemen and their cavesmen and their cavesemotional support pgcemen and their caves=men and their cavecan men learn to show emotionmen in their cavewomans emotion men godmen emotions hurtWell you get the idea and the theme here. So if you have stumbled upon my blog searching with the above then welcome and stick around, make yourself at home and hopefully something of what I have shared can help you on your quest.This article I wrote about a year ago shows much the same thing as far as searches go. This must only be a fraction of the amount of searches done on the subject. I am not about to suggest that over the course of a year anything should have changed about Men's Emotion...

Who are the British Creationists? Should it be discussed in School?
2008-09-16 21:00:00
Just Who are the British Creationists? This is the question posed by the BBC site (hotlink above) prompted by a comment by Professor Michael Reiss (BBC Link) where he thinks that Creationism should be allowed to be discussed in a Science lesson if a pupil brings it up. From what I gather this is purely from the point of view that this would then enable the teacher to point out, in his view, that Creationism had no scientific basis and that Darwinian molecules to man Evolution does. He believes it is better to open dialogue in order to hopefully 'educate' a person in a real scientific view.  To quote: "However, if a young person raises creationism in a science class, teachers should be in a position to explain why evolution is a sound scientific theory and why creationism is not, in any way, scientific." Now this created a complete overreaction by some more vocal evolutionary evangelicals in the scientific community. I am not sure if they just read the media and believed ...

Star Wars - The Force Unleashed
2008-09-12 11:21:00
I am waiting semi-patiently for Star Wars - The Force Unleashed to be released in the UK. I have a Wii so as much as the graphics won't compare to the PS3 version the actual gameplay should be great fun. wielding the Light saber and throwing enemies around should be fun. Not very Christian I know but.... the story is one of falling into darkness followed by redemption in the end! Only another week or so to go, then my wife won't get near her Wii! Okay that last statement may be a little inaccurate. (I did see a friend playing Grand Theft Auto on PS3 and I was really sickened by that game. I didn't carry on watching it as the relentless bad language and violence got too much and I just found it offensive!)

Are we Happy Plastic People under Shiny Plastic Steeples?
2008-08-29 18:03:00
I just led a group talk, in my Cell group, that dealt with the issue of us as Christians not pretending we are fine when we are not. Not being honest with ourselves about how we are feeling and not being honest with God about how we are feeling. For the first of these points I was challenged by a song by Casting Crowns called 'Stained Glass Masquerade'. The lyrics to which are as follows: Is there anyone that fails Is there anyone that falls Am I the only one in church today feelin? so small Cause when I take a look around Everybody seems so strong I know they?ll soon discover That I don?t belong So I tuck it all away, like everything?s okay If I make them all believe it, maybe I?ll believe it too So with a painted grin, I play the part again So everyone will see me the way that I see them *Chorus* Are we happy plastic people Under shiny plastic steeples With walls around our weakness And smiles to hide our pain But if the invitation?s open To every heart that has been broken M...

Let's Talk Ourselves Into Recession
2008-08-10 18:12:00
I am no economist and very likely have a limited grasp of global and local economics. However I do know that quite a lot of it is based on confidence in the Market from pretty much everyone. Including us poor consumers. I have noticed recently in the media that nearly every day is a report on credit crunch this and recession that. Now this strikes me as being very foolish but also typical of the media. There is talk of everyone buying less and spending less. Half of which I am sure is for legitimate financial reasons. However I am convinced much of it is because we are being told there is a recession therefore we automatically tighten our belts when it comes to spending money. We are effectively being talked into a recession by the media. I know it is more complex than that but I am certain that plays a significant part. If something is repeated enough times we take it as fact. A bit like Dawkins in his program last week repeatedly saying evolution is fact in the hope if he said it ...

First Post From iTouch 2.0
2008-07-31 22:26:00
Well I successfully updated my iPod touch to the new version 2.0 OS. I now have all the apps I need from the new appstore to use my iTouch as a proper PDA making my poor Palm Tungsten redundant. I only have one issue with the update which I believe is more to do with the new iTunes 7.7 update as opposed to the new OS. My calendar has syncing issues from iPod to Outlook whereas the other way is ok. This is reported widely on the apple forums by other users. The entries are missing in Outlook in the main view but show up in other list views. I think there is a format error in what iTunes syncs. Apple really need to fix this and many other reported bugs quickly before the update becomes a real embarrassment for them.Post ed with LifeCast

Prince Caspian Film review
2008-07-17 22:00:00
Note this is a review of the film not the book. I am treating them as different!This was one of those films of 2008 to look forward to for me. I love the C.S Lewis books and greatly enjoyed the film of 'Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe'. Prince Caspian is, as has been widely reported, a darker more grown up film. It is most definitely for kids but it takes the themes of the first film and grows them.It is a year on from when the Pevensie children last visited Narnia but 1300 years or so in Narnian Time. The children are in war torn London at School. Peter seemingly having forgotten the lessons learned in Narnia resorts to fighting when another boy bumps him. Edmund however, the selfish brat previously, seems to have matured. Susan has tried to forget Narnia as a means of coping with living back in our world. Lucy however has never forgotten and still has absolute faith in returning to Narnia and seeing Aslan again.Much has changed in Narnia with the human Telmarines ruling the land...

Ducks and Sticking close to God!
2008-06-12 11:00:00
I was at a seminar yesterday at CWR in Farnham, Hampshire. Before it started I was walking by the river that runs along the lower grounds and saw a Mother Duck with three quite young ducklings. When they saw me the ducklings immediately swam to the mother and couldn't have been closer if they climbed on her back. God then made the point to me that this is how we should be in relation to Him. We should stick so close to God that we are under His protection and not stray away where we can be picked off by the enemy. God speaks to me through nature as I guess that is the way I most easily hear His voice. Anyway here is a picture to help visualise what I saw. Sadly I didn't take a picture of the scene myself. I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. (Psalm 61:4)

New Labour's attack on true Demomcracy - 'Free Vote' sham!
2008-06-06 11:06:00
I have previously posted my views on the Human Embryology bill recently passed in all it 'glory' by our government. I knew the 'free vote' statement by Gordon Brown was a joke but this article just highlights what an utter sham and disgrace it was. It was obvious that 'Free Vote ' means free to vote as long as you vote the way we want you to.No party is without its skeletons and in any way perfect but Labour has become so dictatorial from its leadership that I question how democracy can be served in this country with them as the Governmental party.

Embryology Bill and the state of Scientific morality/ethics!
2008-05-20 10:28:00
  BBC NEWS | Politics | MPs to vote on abortion limit cut   The Link above takes you to the details about the bill from the usually biased BBC website. Here is a link from another point of view that details why in particular stopping Animal-Human hybrids, the threat of 'spare part children' and Fatherless families and Abortion Limit reduction are so important. At least David Cameron is voting to drop the 24 week limit and Ian Duncan Smith is behind wanting to keep the requirement for a Father with IVF. Mr Brown on the other hand is voting yes on all of them. How can a man who professes to be a Christian support this Act. The Hybrid arguments that support the creation of Animal-Human hybrid creation just highlights to me where evolutionary thinking leads. If we are just a cosmic accident and here by pure chance then there is no basis for morality. An argument that sticks dogmatically to the point that it 'may' help develop cures for diseases is missing a huge side. W...

Tina Dico Live at Komedia Brighton - Review
2008-03-07 10:55:00
As per previous post I saw Tina Dico live at the Komedia in Brighton last night. This was in what is known as Komedia Downstairs and is a fairly small intimate venue. The support act who mercifully only played about 25 minutes was called Ain and hails from Dublin. All I can say if that is your day job then you are in trouble. Sorry to be so negative but it was truly awful and hats off to the very English polite crowd who clapped in the right places and didn't make any loud or rude comments. The man knows one melody, in the loosest sense I use that term and played several songs with different lyrics to that same melody. Awful! Anyway to the reason why I went. Miss Tina Dico performed for around one hour fifteen minutes. Short yes but so very good. It was just her and her two guitars along with her beautifully crafted intelligent vocals. I knew she had a great voice from the albums and from seeing some recorded live work but in the flesh so to speak, simply knock out. Emotive, pure ...
