Derek French finishes a survey of 1 John with Roger Prime, looking at the basis of Christian assurance, the unpardonable sin, and the nature of adoption.
Andrew Cook chats with Steve Kneale about how Matt. 7;1 is misused to criticise Christians for taking any ethical stand. Does Jesus tell us not to judge, or to use a right judgement?

We judge sin knowing that we ourselves are sinners.
