Hi, I’m Steven, welcome to my blog! I’m a 35 year old Brit, born in Cambridge, raised in Oxfordshire, and currently living with my pet hedgehog in London, England.

I’m here to discuss all the big questions that philosophers and theologians ask about God, faith and truth, and also to share my latest musical creations.

I hold a 1st class BA (Hons) degree in Commerical Music from the University of Westminster, and a postgraduate certificate in Philosophy and Religion from the University of London.

  1. Great stuff Steven. Thanks for stopping in and commenting on my blog. Sorry it to so long to get to your blog. I will subscribe so I can keep up with you.

  2. I am sure I would love to discuss with you but right now I can get passed how cute you are. I shared a link to your book on my facebook page and I will certainly take some time to do some reading here soon.

    1. You have put a big grin on my face and have made my day! Thanks so much for being so kind and for sharing the link to my book on your Facebook page, I really appreciate it. I’m sure that you and I would have a lot to talk about, comparing our experiences and our views on God and humanity… please stay in touch! Steven x

  3. I am sure that it will be my great pleasure, you remind me of three of my favorite male characters combined. Are you ready? Russel Brand, Adam Ant and Dumbledore or Merlin. LOL Take care. have a happy day. I will share the link to your book around FB.

    1. Thanks so much, TJ, for you kind comment! Both of my books are relatively short and easy to read and they weren’t a chore to write. I really enjoyed the process. They say everyone has a book in them so maybe yours in somewhere in the pipeline? πŸ™‚ Best wishes, S x

  4. There it is. My trouble was that i was using the mobile sight i guess lol. Just to re-emphasize my point from Twitter, but not in a condemning way, what you’re suggesting is heretical. It stands diametrically opposed to the teachings of scriptures.

  5. I’m glad you “Liked” my post because it brought me to yours. Thank you for honestly expressing emotional and mental health issues. Believe me, many believers struggle with anxiety and depression and other conditions but so seldom share such battles. Too often well meaning Christians will recite a verse, “Be anxious for nothing!” when true understanding and prayer is needed to refresh the suffering believer. May the Lord continue to encourage and inspire you!

    1. Dear Lisa,

      Many thanks for visiting my blog! I was intrigued to read about your journey – it sounds as though you have served the Lord in some amazing ways during your life and career. I’m looking forward to reading more. I think my experience with mental illness has taught me a lot about God and spirituality, and actually some of my hardest times have been the most key to my spiritual development. There have been some really tough times, but I can also say God has been wonderfully gracious to me.

      Please do keep in touch and have a wonderful week.

      Peace and blessings,


  6. In many ways I’m an atheist, but I just cant deal with the fact that our lives are without purpose. There must be something more than the here and the now….. Therefore I believe in Christ because his deliverance is free, without commissions…

    1. Interesting! I’m wondering – have you read the Bible? Or the whole New Testament at least? Just curious πŸ™‚ Also, thank you for your comment about my Essays page – I know people are sometimes reluctant to download things so I do understand and will take on board your comment. Blessings and have a great day buddy.

  7. So awesome to read your testimony! I’m so glad that you found Jesus and an answer to your hopelessness. I’m sorry to hear that your mom passed away; I hope that you’ve been able to find some healing. My Dad passed away unexpectedly four years ago and it has been difficult at times to move on. But his impact on my life and the memories of him remain. I look forward to reading more of your blogs! Only wish I’d started sooner! Blessings to you, brother! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Sarah! Thank you for your kind words. I’m sorry to hear you lost your dad. As you suggest, there is a healing process when we lose someone to whom we’ve been so close. Really pleased we’re connected and I’ll look forward to reading more of your blog too πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful day! Steven πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜Š

  8. I have a set of beliefs that fall loosely into a sort of Western Buddhism. I think our karma does indeed largely determine how we think and act from moment to moment, but alongside that karma is a small proportion of free will — maybe a tiny percentage, but it’s there. That’s where my faith lies, because I sense that if we don’t have some degree of free will, we are pretty much doomed. So I may not totally understand your dilemma, but it makes some sense to me.

    1. Hiya Mel πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I was very interested in Buddhism for a season, but came to believe in the personal active God described in the Abrahamic religions. A God who created and sustains the Universe and is present in all the details, working out a plan for existence with great care and intricacy.

      Your blog looks wonderful, I was pleased to discover it and will take a look at some more of your articles πŸ™‚

      All the best! Steven

  9. Hello there brother! Just thought I would connect with you a bit more closely. I hope to check our site in more depth soon. May the Lord be glorified and we humbled and brought closer in our walk with God.
    Peace and blessings in this end of the year!


    1. Hi Jeremy!

      Great to hear from you πŸ™‚ You seem to be rather a prolific writer, how many books have you written?!

      Thank you for your kind comment, will look forward to interacting with you in the future!

      Merry Christmas and abundant blessings to you, bro!


  10. Hello Steven,
    My name is God’s Warrior. I don’t know if you know this but I’ve been to your blog, but I never stuck around partially because I am confused on what your blog is about and I’m just confused because in your bio, you said that on your blog you discuss “my worldview and a wide range of issues related to philosophy, religion, spirituality, and mental health.”

    What I really wanted to know before I continue reading your blog was what is the difference between philosophy, spirituality, and religion? It’s because I feel that they’re separate things all together.

    Thanks for letting me rant on your blog; It’s great that you are blogging on what you enjoy.

    1. Greetings, God’s Warrior! Thank you for your comment and your honest feedback, I appreciate it.

      This blog has evolved a lot over the last few years, and you’re right it can be somewhat unclear what the focus is because I venture into a few different areas with my writing. It’s something I need to work on, so people can be clear about what to expect when they visit.

      My blog does cover philosophy, spirituality, and religion, which are all related but distinct fields. I realise it’s a broad remit, but I like to write about them all.

      May I ask where you came across the bio? Was it on Amazon, or Goodreads, or somewhere else?

      Thank you and God bless. Steven

          1. It’s at the bottom of your About page right after you talk about spiritual journey. Where you said, “… discussing my worldview and a wide range of issues related to philosophy, religion, spirituality, and mental health.”

    1. Hi Madeline! My pleasure, thanks for stopping by! Well, you see, it’s a special kind of hedgehog. It’s not your average hedgehog. It’s simultaneously a hedgehog, more than a hedgehog, and less than a hedgehog. I’ll say no more! ☺️

  11. Thank you for visiting and deciding to follow my blog “Call for Fire Seminar.” After reviewing your blog, i plan to return the favor. Always good to see another bearded blogger.

    1. Hi Michael! My pleasure, and thank you very much for following back. Looking forward to learning more about you and your work as you blog πŸ™‚ All the best – keep in touch! Bearded Steven

  12. Thanks for liking my latest post. A question to you from a biologist/pastor/theologian (me) ; given that we are at the mercy of circulating hormones, neurotransmitters, and products of digestion, is there any such thing as the free will of the theologians?

    1. Hi! I don’t believe we have free will. All activity in existence is an expression of God’s will. There is one almighty will, in control of everything that happens (including in our bodies). May I ask what prompted the question?

  13. Thanks for visiting my blog. I’m telling my story and sharing my knowledge to help others with their struggles. I’m going to follow your blog and hopefully gleam some knowledge from it.

    God Bless

  14. Stephen! It doesn’t appear that you are doing the A-z challenge…so, how did you come across my blog?? Just curious. I’ve enjoyed reading about your journey from atheism to Christianity. I think one has to really desire to know before the Holy Ghost can work on that person and lead them to Truth. Sincerely, Gail

    1. Hi Gail!

      I believe I came across your blog through the Reader. I search for blogs that are focused around my areas of interest.

      Thanks for returning the visit and reading some of my posts, I appreciate it!

      Peace and blessings,
