Become a Consumerist Today

My name is Ron and I am a lad from London.

I am a consumerist.

My life is all about consuming cars, motorbikes, haircuts and films.

I will be a millionaire in ten years.

This is what I believe.

Take it or leave it.

The world is a stockpile of raw materials.

Iron ore, copper, soil, plants, animals are there for the taking.

We turn this stuff into commodities like fridges, tellies, golf clubs.

Nice!

I am a selfish calculating machine.

Idolatry, Ideology and Islamic State (part 2)

A key text for understanding idolatry in the New Testament is a passage in the book of Romans.

They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator.

Romans 1:25, NIV

Here we should notice that idolatry does not merely refer to the worship of idols and images in the sense of the giant bull statue in 'Molech' worship.

'Pick-up' artist Julien Blanc and how we are failing our young people

Men pay upwards of £1000 to listen to the 'wisdom' and 'insight' of 'pick-up' artist Julien Blanc. His worldview boils down to this: objectify women and use them for your pleasure. Videos of Blanc preaching and ranting can be found online under the hashtag #ChokingGirlsAroundtheWorld.

Amazing Questions from Teenagers

I wanted to blog about some of the questions that students ask.

RealityBites is a ministry that creates space for people to ask questions about life, the universe and, of course, Hertfordshire. We try to arouse curiosity in people about God, idolatry and the kingdom of Jesus. We do this by telling provocative, shocking stories about rat worshippers, plastic surgery obsessives and human traffickers etc.

Christian Education is not Bible-bashing

When people talk about Christian education, many people think about the archetypal Bible-basher. Someone who attacks you with Scripture.

This is tragic.

In my view Christian education should be about wisdom, discernment and understanding the brutal stories that ruin countless lives. Consider this.
