Some of you have probably seen me about this site already but I guess it's always good to do a little intro post, there's much more detail in my two blogs and on my profile, but yes I'm a Christian…Continue

Back With Confidence

It's been a LONG time since I've been on this site and that has been a long journey.


But I'm here an agnostic atheist - but a much calmer one, a less angry. This I think is a much better place to be.

I'm no longer arguing about religion 99% of my waking day and I no longer feel like complete scum for being an atheist either.


I have morals, I have good morals in fact. I also have great passion and compassion for other people, for animals. I'm a good…


War On Christmas/Winterfest/Winterval

This has been going on since I was at school here in the UK (about 8 years... hmm feel old saying that) and suffice to say I'm tired of it.

First they said the Muslims wanted it changed, none of the Muslims I knew gave a rats ass about it being called Christmas! Some celebrated the traditional side of the festivities even.

Now, it's just general political correctness with a side of "it's the atheists!" throw in after the bus campaigns this year.

I became a Christian just over a year ago now and although I had believe for most of my life before that (bar a few years as a "radical atheist"), I was never in the Christian community then and so I lacked knowledge of how to become a Christian and more specific knowledge about the faith.

One of those things that was explained to me then was the concept of forgiveness and salvation - now although I knew of this before, it was more the specifics that I didn't know - before you are "saved"… Continue

For the Love of God

Being a thinking, critical, and questioning Christian is hard work. But intellectual arguments (mostly) aside, what about love. More specifically God's Love. God's ever present, unfailing, over-whelming, ya-can't-touch-this-even-if-you-were-MC-Hammer Love. How does one reach, recognise and feel that love?

Some of you may find this familiar but for those who don't, let me just take you on a brief tour of the process of becoming a Christian:

You've discovered God is real and have… Continue

Is this the reference that you were looking for in regards to name calling?
Matthew 5:22
But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, “Raca,” is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.
