What I am trying to do with this blog is commend the Christian faith as the source of life's meaning. I have posted entries on the nature of the Christian good news and tried to answer some of the questions that people may have about Christianity. However, I have come across a blog that is far better than this one. Why not check out the Christianity Explored site?
It is the start of the 2011 Rugby World Cup. A number of notable Christian rugby players have taken part in the past, including Andrew Trimble, Nick Farr-Jones and Micheal Jones. The following two clips are about 'Inga the Winger'. In the first of these two clips his biographer speaks about the book that was written about him. In the second there is an interesting up-date on his life.
I don't know much about Alice Cooper. I like the song 'Poison', although I haven't paid much attention to its lyrics to see if it is wholesome. I have always enjoyed him on the radio, when his show is on. I heard that he is a Christian. He speaks about his faith in this clip.
John Stott died at the end of July 2011. He was one of the major leaders of modern evangelicalism. I was disappointed that the Irish Times didn't seem to mention his passing. It suggests that evangelicalism is not on their radar. However, in 2005 Time Magazine rated Stott amongst the one hundred most influential people in the world. Here he speaks about people's fear of death.
