Connecting the dots

The expression, ‘Connecting the dots’ has become quite popular in South Africa as a way of suggesting areas of corruption without actually being explicit. However, in this article, I want to use the expression very explicitly to connect the dots between the Old and New Testaments. Jesus is of course the dot-connector in chief, but

TruthTalk: Andy Stanley – Unhitched, Unhinged, or Misunderstood

Should we be concerned when Andy Stanley, the leader of the biggest church in the USA, says that it is time for us to ‘unhitch’ from the Old Testament? Is he unhitched from truth, unhinged, or just misunderstood? This TruthTalk seeks to answer these questions and explores the relevance of the Old Testament and

Andy Stanley: Unhitched, Unhinged, or Misunderstood?

  In this article, I respond to a challenge to comment on Andy Stanley’s ‘Aftermath’ series of sermons. I recently wrote an article about the five preliminary questions we need to answer before censuring a preacher. As an example, I used the recent flood of criticisms aimed at Andy Stanley’s contention that it

TruthTalks: When opposites actually aren’t

Could it be that Legalism and Licence or Free Will and Divine Determinism are not as different as they first appear? This TruthTalk explores the fascinating idea that many apparent polar opposites are essentially similar when viewed from a different perspective. If you would like to read the article this is

TruthTalks (Sermons): Agabus – A New Testament Prophet

In this sermon, delivered at the Lonehill Village Church on Sunday 24th June 2018, I spotlight prophecy in the book of Acts and then extend the subject into the church of our day.

Following THIS post on a rather contraversial theological statement made recently, Dr. Christopher Peppler (a.k.a. Dad) gives a summary with some extra details followed by a question and answer session with me (a.k.a. daughter/admin/non-theologian). I do hope you enjoy it and take up the challenge with me at the end of this podcast.

Exposing ourselves in public

When we expose someone in public then we often end up exposing ourselves in public. A big-name pastor says something that smacks of heresy and dozens of church teachers rush to denounce him as a false prophet. A local church preacher says something that offends someone’s entrenched doctrine and he might well receive an

TruthTalks: The Bible under Attack, Again.

  Unfortunately, it’s not only atheists, secular agnostics and so on who denigrate the Bible, it’s also several well-meaning ‘Christians’. Listen to Dr Christopher Peppler explore this topic in the latest TruthTalks summary and question and answer session. If you would like to read the original article, click HERE, or

The Bible under Attack, Again.

After church on Sunday, someone asked me what I thought of the “Bible Secrets Revealed” series currently airing on the History Channel. I hadn’t seen the production, so later that day I watched episode one – sickening! I don’t object to an honest enquiry into the difficulties some people have with the content and
