Why I love politics but NOT in the church

Why I love politics but NOT in the church – Subtitles now added!

I am an evangelical Christian, saved from the age of 14 at a Scripture Union schools camp. I was not brought up in any denominational or doctrinal tradition (in fact my parents were entirely non-Christian throughout my life), so I have largely formed my own opinions from the scripture I have read and my own personal walk with the Lord. I have found myself at odds so often with typical Northern Ireland (and wider) evangelical opinion, that I have decided to start this blog to record my thoughts, feelings and opinions. I shall, at all times, strive to be biblically based and guided by what I believe is my own effort to “rightly divide the word of God” (as is the clichéd expression).

I did spend three years at Bible College, so my knowledge of scripture should be reasonable (compared to most people). I do not set out to be controversial, though I do find myself quite naturally at loggerheads with my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ. My explanation for this is that too much of our upbringing and cultural baggage influences our faith. Our opinions, decisions and lifestyle choices should be based on scripture, and NOTHING ELSE! How much I keep to that myself may be challenged, as it is within all of us to wish to cling to that which has long been familiar and comforting to us. Tradition has its place; it can be both good and bad. Though it is reprehensible, in my humble opinion, when it supersedes the written commandments and instructions of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Camp Kaphar Gospel Jamboree/Bobby Smith Band

Camp Kaphar is an independent Community center in Uhrichsville Ohio. Every year they hold Gospel sings with various artists from Ohio and beyond. Bobby , being inspired as a child, from the music of ‘ Jerry lee Lewis ‘ his Father played , began to teach himself piano at age 16. Today he plays and sings at various venues from Churches to Festivals and more. Someone in the audience had captured these highlight moments on a cheap camera and we decided to put it on here. In his music you will hear the ‘Jerry Lee lewis’ flavor and others as he plays and sings. If you like the old fashion Camp Meeting style music you will like this !
