Edinburgh University Makes Plans to Ban Gideon Bibles

Ian Dunlop, chairman of Scotland's first full-time Christian radio station says that Edinburgh University is displaying extreme intolerance for Christianity by planning to ban Bibles from its student residence halls.

The ban is a response to student association protests that the Bibles are a means of discrimination against non-Christians - and an effort to treat all religious faiths on campus equally. It had been a long-standing practice to place Gideon Bibles in the room of all new students.

Dunlop says he believes that to ban Bibles because they perhaps in some way might discriminate against students of other faiths "flies in the face of everything that we stand for here in the UK as a nation standing for freedom and tolerance."

Scotland's University of Stirling recently dropped its plan to remove 6,000 Bibles from campus after protests from Christian students.

Christian Hedonism and John Piper

Christian Hedonism sounds a bit dodgy doesn't it? I'd heard about John Piper advocating this, but hadn't bothered looking into it. A recent discussion with a brother in England has made me investigate it and, as I suspected, it looks okay. I'm going to listen to the sermons here and understand a bit more. It sounds just what we need, although he should've named it something else!

An overview can be found here.
