By Mark Kelly

Welcome to Hyperlinks - the podcast where we try to connect Biblical truths to a troubled world.

The Hyperlinks podcast is hosted by Mark Kelly and David Lavery. In each episode, they grab a coffee, sit down and have a good ol’ chinwag about the issues of the day, trying to find how Scripture might help them through it.

Is Jesus a socialist?
Is Jesus a socialist?
In this episode Mark & David answer the question of the title of this episode directly and then explore their reasons as to how they have come to the conclusion they have. While on that journey of exploration they discuss whether Christians should lean politically one way more than the other, what happens when socialism becomes true communism, and what can learn from the 10 commandments when it comes to politically left ideology.  Here are links to some of the things we talk about in this episode: The myth of Jesus as a socialist - https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-myth-of-jesus-socialism-acts-new-testament-christianity-catholic-protestant-marx-communism-st-paul-11650575604 Inconvenient truths about Che Guevara - https://www.foxnews.com/politics/5-inconvenient-truths-about-che-guevara Jesus as Che Guevara - https://www.premierchristianity.com/home/the-apologist-dont-confuse-jesus-with-che-guevara/3647.article Racist, homophobe and mass murderer - https://www.humanprogress.org/the-truth-about-che-guevara-racist-homophobe-and-mass-murderer/ Stupid, ignorant, racist - https://www.politico.eu/article/nigel-farage-on-brexit-remainers-they-think-we-are-thick-stupid-ignorant-racist-european-parliament-election-uk/ Victims of the Holocaust - https://encyclopedia.ushmm.org/content/en/article/documenting-numbers-of-victims-of-the-holocaust-and-nazi-persecution 100 million lives - https://www.thecrimson.com/article/2017/11/20/nicolae-one-hundred-million/ Why communism always fails - https://www.news24.com/news24/why-communism-always-fails-kept-simple-for-the-general-reader-20140826 Different types of socialism - https://www.economicshelp.org/blog/glossary/different-types-of-socialism/ SNP bill to spy on parents - https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/400779/SNP-bill-to-spy-on-parents-is-criticised-by-families Comrade Pavlik - https://amzn.eu/d/hVCDbxe The Gulag Archipelago - https://amzn.eu/d/6U1sWOf The Kulaks - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kulak Email us at hyperlinkspodcast@gmail.com Find Mark at: markkelly.bio.link David at: resurrectionchurch.net

Politics: which side are you on?
Politics: which side are you on?
In this episode, we don’t just dip into the murky pool of politics; we take a run up and dive in - cannonball style - splashing that water everywhere! In this episode, the first of a two-episode series, we tackle some awkward questions, such as: should Christians get involved in politics? Should Christian MPs keep their faith out of politics? At what point should we disobey our government? We know that some of you will like what you hear, but others may never want to listen to us again! We hope that whichever way you sway politically, we add something to the conversation in a sphere that can generate intense emotions.

The ‘T’ Word
The ‘T’ Word
Yep, we went there! In this episode Mark and David talk about tithing. What is tithing? Do we have to tithe and is it a Biblical principle still relevant today? How are we to handle money and who do we trust more, the government or God? Mark and David explore these questions and many more while connecting some Biblical Truths to a troubled world.  We hope you enjoy the episode. Why not let us know what you think?.

The “P” Word
The “P” Word
In this episode Mark & David take some tentative steps into the world of what is commonly known as the Prosperity Gospel and ask some questions of it. Does it mean what some people think it means? Is ‘The Prosperity Gospel’ a bit of a misnomer?  What does the Bible have to say about prosperity? And, finally, what do you think about private jets? We hope you enjoy the episode and let us know what you think about it all. Email us at hyperlinkspodcast@gmail.com Find Mark at: markkelly.bio.link and David at: resurrectionchurch.net
