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.

Episode 5 – Jesus(ish)



In this episode, the (possibly) Greatest Theologians of the 21st Century attempt to take on Jesus. I say attempt as they stray way off course and talk more about the churches reaction to Jesus and how we just mess it up so much, so often. They do manage to cover what exactly we mean when we say ‘Son of God’ so there’s that… They also look at the problems with church being insular; a social club, rather than an outreach and the problem that causes when wishing to question dogma or doctrine. Not that Dangerous or Sir Tom have any issue doing so as you will hear…


Episode 4 – God



In this episode, “A Despicable Human Being”, ‘Dangerous’ and Sir Tom talk about God and who He is. Or at least they try to, but they veer off into cricket and The Kinks back catalogue a fair bit. Still they make some good points about what, if anything we can understand about the Big Man and the proof that He really does exist…

Episode 3 – What is the Bible?



In this episode ‘Dangerous’ and Sir Tom explicitly state they won’t talk about Biblical inerrancy and then talk about it a lot.

As they do however, they cover many topics such as ‘what is the Bible?’; ‘How should we use it?’; ‘What is the core message of the Bible?’ and ‘Did the Apostle Paul get invited to parties?’

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?)

Episode 2 – The Greatest Novel Never Written



This episode is a re-recording of a light-hearted talk Dangerous gave. It’s about why the Bible can’t be made up and the reason it’s here is that it deals with Biblical dating. We’re talking about what’s and wherefores of the Bible in this month’s episode so it seemed a good idea to get the facts about Biblical dating out the way so we don’t have to slog through them in the episode. We hope you enjoy it and hopefully it helps in your quest.
