Can We Be Politically & Prophetically Correct?


Welcome again to Into the Pray – thank you for listening. 

Today we speak with The Rt Hon. Ann Widdecombe, ex-MP, ex-MEP, political commentator, author and TV personality. You can browse Ann’s website here.

It was nearer the beginning of the COVID situation that we spoke with Ann previously. You can listen to that here and watch it on YouTube here

This brief conversation (Premiering on YouTube at 9pm tonight) regarding Ann’s vast experience in the political world is to help us continue to think about our season focus of ‘All the Prophets’ and the prospect of being “politically correct or prophetically correct?”

We didn’t do Isaiah justice today but Ann does help us think about his life and the role of the Prophets generally. We discuss the relationship between the monarchy and the Spirit of prophecy and the frailty of relying on the establishment. 

In what might feel like quite a dreary outlook regarding the prospect of the power of the Spirit in our midst,  the most significant thought from Ann is right at the end. 

“For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” (Revelation 19:10[b])

What do you think? 

Many thanks again to Ann for her time in recording with us!

This final episode in our focus on contraception (LIVE tonight at 9pm) is a very helpful look at Scripture to enable us all to continue to think carefully and biblically about the things that we say we believe. Thanks as ever to Dave Brennan of Brephos for joining us each week.

Next week don’t miss our preview of what’s to come in our Wednesday sessions over the next 3 months before we finish season 4. We will be talking about transgender ideology, predestination, intercession and activism as well as posing some difficult questions for all of us as we survey the general landscape of the Church.

You can listen to the podcast version of this week’s conversation here.

In a couple of weeks from now we meet again with Ann Widdecombe regarding the life of Isaiah and next month we have Christopher Ash helping us with our season series on “All the Prophets”. Author of umpteen books, including one of our faves, Bible Delight, Christopher is something of an authority on the Psalms.

Should Women Lead Churches?


Thank you for joining us again on Into the Pray. 

I’ll be picking Hamlet back up again next week.

Suffice to say for our 33rd episode in 1 Corinthians, we now broach one of the most important theological errors of our day:- “progressive” “christian” liberalism.

What of head coverings? Are egalitarians correct when they maintain that there is no longer male and female in Christ and that, therefore, “Why shouldn’t women lead a church?!” (Galatians 3:28). What might be the result if they’re not?

ELISHA & Apostasy in the Church

Listen to Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali talk with me about the Prophet Elisha and the current – and worsening – apostasy of the British Church.

We trust that you/yours will be blessed as it was a joy to listen to Michael share about his family background in Pakistan, his conversion at University in Karachi thanks to an illegal Anglican Chaplain, his courage to speak up about the unfaithful Church in Great Britain and his love of the word “maranatha”.
