What's my offence - am I neglecting my prayers, or not eating halal meat? Allow me to first tell you how I came into my faith and practice it today, and then judge for yourself.

I was pretty sure I'd find the challenge difficult, but I had no idea whether it would have significant impact on my everyday life. Would I miss out on things, would it be a massive inconvenience, would I get weird withdrawal symptoms?

Judas Iscariot, the Severus Snape of the Gospels.

I don't know the truth about Judas and no one ever will. But I believe it's our task to look at him with Jesus' eyes -- and before any Christian ever again says a word against Judaism, it would be wise to remember that we follow a guy who also was a Jew.

St. Paul and the Women

Maggy Whitehouse | Posted 15.03.2016 | UK
Maggy Whitehouse

I was never fond of St. Paul. His teachings on on women were always a challenge and I always wondered how he got the ascendency over the disciples who actually knew Jesus and managed to kick-start Christianity virtually single-handed.

All I Want for Christmas? To Feel God's Love!

Tony Lobl | Posted 21.12.2015 | UK
Tony Lobl

At the heart of Christmas is the Bethlehem babe, who later went on to preach that we are to love our neighbours as ourselves. Not instead of ourselves or despite ourselves but as ourselves. The all-inclusive love Jesus was teaching, therefore, includes the call to each of us to look after "number one", too.

A Christmas Miracle From ISIS

This year's Christmas card from the family is one that Isis made herself. It says 'Merry Christmas! Isis 2015. And it arrived on the very morning I did that Pause for Thought. I didn't stop laughing for nearly half an hour. I'd say that was pretty spectacular coincidence no.2. Actually, I'd call it a Christmas miracle.

Loving Your Enemies

our elected representatives want and that's how democracy works. We are already bombing. Maybe it's the 'right' thing to do; I don't know. But I do know that if you support this, then you can't call yourself a Christian. It's as simple as that.

Was Jesus the First Supermodel?

Xavier Toby

There is compelling evidence that the first supermodel was, in fact, Jesus. Now I'm not sure if anyone's ever come up with this theory before, but I've never heard anyone else mention it. So let's just pretend for a moment that I'm a genius, and that the whole concept isn't at all offensive.

So Kids, I Lied About Santa, But Jesus Is Real

Sally Fraser | Posted 19.02.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Sally Fraser

It breaks my heart to think that if she finds out Santa is made up then God and Jesus will go with him. I couldn't handle that because my jaded, patchy grown-up's faith is so strengthened by her perfect child-like one. At this time of year I need that more than ever; I honestly don't know how people survive Christmas without Christ.

Jesus and I have been separated a few years now. Well, we're divorced actually. Now, I know that whenever a marriage fails it's always the other person's fault and I'm not saying I'm perfect, but I had really, really tried to make it work. In the end, it was his moody silence that finished it off for me; all those years of absence...
