A Life Worth Living – Finding Meaning in a Meaningless World. Is the title of a theme the good pastor, David Robertson plans to discuss during a series of lunchtime lectures/talks at a local Cathedral in Sydney. As people are encouraged to bring sandwiches and wotnot this seems like a sure-fire way to give oneself … More Oh, for god’s sake! A Meaningless World?
In Part 2 I looked at David Robertson’s assertion that Jesus would have believed biblical characters and events such As Adam and Eve and Noah and the Flood because , according to Robertson, they are/were real people events. Robertson, as we know, is an evangelical and as Nan pointed out – ”As for the “real … More Was Jesus a Christian- Part 3
Okay, I know …. silly question. But the passage below which I have lifted from David Roberston’s blog opens up some interesting questions.

Fury as primary school tells pupils to say ‘Baby Boy Jesus’ instead of ‘Lord Jesus’ while singing Away In A Manger so that pupils of all faiths can join in. I have to admit I smiled after I read this article. Of course, when I lived in the UK it would not have been … More The War on Christmas?
As far as my very basic understanding of the Christian doctrine of the Trinity goes – but who really understands it? -the Christian god is one god with three components – Yahweh, Holy Spirit and Jesus.

In a surprising and ironic turn of events today, on the southern coast of England 250 re-born Christians had to be forcibly restrained by police as ugly scenes threatened to turn the quiet fishing village of Slumgullet-by-the Sea into a religious battleground.
