    Some kinds of Neoplatonism, Stoicism, and Aristotelianism are friendlier to the idea of a supernatural reality than (say) Materialism - but it does not follow that they will be entirely compatible...

    Indeed. And Judith. And Judges.

    But none of these books are Christian. The Christian’s moral example is meant to be, not Eglon, or Jael, or Judith, or the murderers of Amon, but Christ.

    ”Usefulness” ? That sounds like consequentialism, rather than Christian morality.

    Consequentialism: “This person has many glaring & notorious faults, but we can prudently calculate that, if he...

    Is political assassination a Christian act ?

    If the US can do that sort of thing with an easy conscience, how can it claim to be acting in accord with the Gospels ?

    Just one: calling Barth, of all people, a liberal, sounds so completely wide of the mark as to be incomprehensible.

    The impertinence of those comfortable US critics who snap at the heels of men...

    It depends what is meant by “free will”.

    Freedom to sin is not true freedom at all, but slavery. True freedom of will consists in perfect conformity to, & communion with, the Will of God. That...

    2. The contradiction is verbal, not real. What James rejects, is not what St Paul proposes. James is a close echo of the Teaching of Christ, which St Paul adapts parts of, but does not betray.

    Did the Churches known to Mohammed have the Protestant 66-book canon ? I don’t think so. The CC can be left out of the reckoning, as Mo displays no knowledge of Latin Christianity - which leaves...

    That depends, in part, on what is meant by “that great and dreadful day”.

    I’m not sure the Reformation would have got very far if its leaders had abstained from politics. The Prophets were up to their necks in politics. Preaching the Universal Kingship of Christ, which is...

    I voted Tory - whatever BoJo’s personal failings, letting in Labour would likely be catastrophic. And Brexit needs doing, for real, ASAP. I would only think of voting Labour, if it would stop the...
