This podcast was recorded at Nottingham’s Victoria Centre Market on 31 January 2017. I am in conversation with Jonathan Sharp, and we talk about Limbo. Both Limbo the dance and Limbo the spiritual dimension. The religious aspect of Limbo the no longer exists, it was dissolved by Papal decree in 2007. Traditionally Limbo Land was a place between Heaven and Hell created for children who died before baptism.

The concept of purgatory is a process not a place, so Jonathan may well be correct in his assumption that hell is on Earth. Augustine’s opinion negates the idea of unbaptised children condemned to punishment in Limbo, he decreed children relegated to Limbo enjoyed a real happiness. So no problems if you were concerned about the unbaptised souls. There is still interesting comparisons to Limbo refugee souls, and the terrible plight of the millions of displaced humans surviving in refugee camps. It seems the world’s leaders are beginning close the gates of heaven and hells, and the millions who live in refugee limbo have no chance of a Papal decree to save them. In the meantime, they live in purgatory.
This twelve minute podcast contains Ian and Jonathan’s ideas about charity. The whole recording was an hour long and this short exert was chosen as the content is 1) thought provoking 2) somewhat contentious 3) a good subject for the student of critical thinking to reason through.
The listener can work through the implications of political intervention which set fire-storms of war, deliberately started to enable the theft of property owned by innocent people. This horrific crime has been used for decades to gain title to the resources which are used by you and me every day.
Open-minded thinking can only work to our advantage if we learn to be able to listen to all aspects of an issue. Large establishments use manipulated emotional sentiment to carry the weigh of their opinion. Charities rely on emotional influence and many have become business’s, hidden behind a sanctimonious cloak.
The podcast lasts for thirteen minutes and was recorded in the Victoria Market Nottingham. Many thanks to Liz Clark for allowing us to use her stall for the temporary studio.
