“You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its ZING, how will it be made salty? It then has no further use than to be thrown out and stomped on.” Matthew 5:13 (Scholars’ Version) Thinking aloud about religion: a personal polemic by Peter Turner We believe Jesus was a real flesh and […]

I didn’t quite see eye to eye with a  man I met for the first time at the European Christian Anarchist Conference last weekend. We were among about eight people in a workshop where we thrashed out some ideas about anarchism and the Old Testament. Of course you are only hearing my side of the […]
