Critical theory and justice

Sexuality in a PC world

Sexuality in a PC world

September 1, 2019
In our current climate of political correctness it is hard to have meaningful conversations about sensitive issues - and it doesn't get more sensitive than the question of homosexuality. The left would label their opposition as bigots, whilst the right will level the charge of sodomy. The talk will explore a possible 'third way' in which to think, feel and speak about sexual identity. 
The Stephen Lungu Story: Orphan, Freedom Fighter, Missionary

The Stephen Lungu Story: Orphan, Freedom Fighter, Missionary

February 17, 2019

Born in Zimbabwe to a Malawian father and Zimbabwean mother, Stephen had a devastating childhood, being abandoned by his parents at the age of six and placed in a cruel orphanage.

In the years that followed, Stephen lived rough under a bridge, eventually forming a formidable and dangerous gang with other homeless kids, known as "the Black Shadows".

Initially involved with petty crime, the gang later joined the political struggle in Zimbabwe against the "rebel regime".

When a travelling evangelist came to town, the Black Shadows postponed their plan to bomb a bank frequented by white people, preferring to massacre everyone attending one of the Christian meetings.

What is the Big Deal with Christians and Israel?

November 10, 2018

It is hard to think that a place the size of the Kruger National Park can be the geopolitical center of the world - yet Israel dominates news headlines. Strangely enough it doesn't only command the news, is also receives a lot of airtime in many pulpits with evangelical Christians from around the world rallying behind the nation of Istael.

Johan begins to examine some of the biblical passages behind the "Christians for Israel" bumper stickers & try and make sense of it politically and theologically.

Conquering Complaining - Why the Sin of Murmuring is Dangerous as Hell

Conquering Complaining - Why the Sin of Murmuring is Dangerous as Hell

October 30, 2018

A wise man once said: "Hell begins with a grimbling mood, always complaining, always blaming others. In each of us there is something growing, which will be hell unless it is nipped in the bud".
