Black Company Theology – Episode 5 – The OG OT



Phew, another episode of cracking content and finally we’re getting into the bones of the podcast. This episode Dangerous looks at the Bible and particularly the Old Testament and what it’s made of. A quick squizz at manuscript dating and how scholarly input can actually help us.

He also starts to look into the tensions we hold as Christians; how we can believe two opposing viewpoints at the same time (generally by ignoring one or the other as the situation fits) and how that affects our reading of the Bible.

If you wish to see Dangerous wonking on in all his bearded, bow tie wearing glory, this episode can also be found on YouTube.

Black Company Theology – Episode 4 – Mission Statement



In this fine episode, Dangerous runs us through the end point of The Black Company. To reform Christianity back into a powerful movement, rather than the tradition led institution with all the baggage that it carries. In Acts the bad guys call Christians ‘those that turn the World upside down’. Does that sound like the 21st Century Western church to you?

Black Company Theology – Episode 3



In this episode, Dangerous looks at Song of Songs and the dangers of ignoring it or interpreting it in the light of what we want Christianity to be. He also takes a brief look at porn and how it is affecting our society and muses on whether society would look differently had Christianity not ignored Song of Songs and made sex sinful…


Black Company Theology – Episode 2



In this episode, Dangerous begins to look closer at why we might need a reformation of Christianity in the Western world. He covers, well, loads really, but he does talk about the key things that have lost focus in the modern church. The Holy Spirit; service; Heaven/the afterlife and Evil (with a capital E – actual demons and stuff rather than naughty people).

The revolution reformation starts here! Exciting!

Black Company Theology – Episode 1



In this brand new podcast that builds upon the ideas from “Stuff We Don’t Talk about In Church”, ‘Dangerous’ Walker starts to outline why he thinks the Western, Protestant church needs a reformation. Why he thinks it’s broken. This podcast series will delve into the many facets of this, challenging us with the idea that we have, 100s of years ago, formed our brand of Christianity and chosen the parts of the Bible to fit into it.

Ep.16 – Christmas ‘special’



If you thought Christmas was all peace and fairy lights, think again.

In this episode we host a sermon that Dangerous preached. It’s basically ‘Stuff We Don’t Talk about in Church’ – Christmas Edition covering the exciting history of the Magi; the interesting lack of evidence for the Virgin Birth;  ditto the lack of Nativity coverage and ultimately viewing Christmas through the lens of The Great and Dreadful Day of the Lord.


Ep.15 – The Bible (part 2)



In this episode BT and Dangerous discuss how they use the Bible, what it means to them and, more importantly how the Holy Spirit uses it. With that in mind they ponder when, if and how we open up the Bible to new converts. Are there black and white answers in the Good Book or is it a tool of the Holy Spirit that means different things to different people?


Ep.14 The Bible (part 1)



In this episode, Cirque du Sola Scriptura, the gents look at whether the Bible is reliable. Paul tells Timothy that all scripture is ‘God-breathed’ and that’s often used to prove Biblical inerrancy (ack of errors), but can we really use the Bible to argue the Bible’s reliability? Can we show Biblical reliability in other ways? Even without inerrancy? And what can the late, great cricketer Donald Bradman teach us (And can we teach all Bible studies through analogies with his life?)

Ep.13 The Greatest Novel Never Written



It’s Bible month here at unspokenchurch with both our podcasts taking a gander at the Good Book. Rather than get tangled up in Biblical dating (the historical type, not the fun type) we thought we’d re-record a light-hearted talk Dangerous gave on the topic. It’s a sort of prologue, or scene setter, if you will. Also mighty useful against those that tell you the Bible is made up to control people…


Ep.12 The Milk Podcast (episode 1)



Not a normal episode from the guys this week; instead we’re highlighting our new, limited run, podcast, Milk. It’s taking a look at Christianity Basics from the same eyes as the ‘Stuff’ podcast, rooting around and seeing where we might have added our own traditions into the very basics of our religion.

New episodes won’t appear on this feed, but if you’re interested you can search up ‘Milk’ or ‘unspokenchurch’ on iTunes or wherever you get podcasts from and subscribe from there. And from our blog site, of course.
