Isaiah is the first of the major prophets and one of the most important. His ministry took place before the Babylonian exile of 587 B.C. We are told he started his ministry when King Uzziah died around 740 B.C. His
The last 16 books in the English Old Testament are made up of the prophetic writings: 4 major and 12 minor – so called because of their size, not their importance. Four major prophetic books (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel), and
Dealing with those who insist on killing babies is seldom easy, and a good part of this is because most pro-aborts do not deal with facts or reason or rationality or evidence. They deal in emotion, anger and tired clichés.
There IS such a thing as apostasy, and there ARE such things as apostates. When folks deny key biblical truths and effectively call the Lord Jesus Christ a liar, they have become apostates. One way in which apostasy rears its
A half century ago America and much of the West was engulfed in the counterculture movement. It had other names, such as the hippy movement, the Woodstock generation, the cultural revolution, the peace and love generation, and the radical 60s.
We expect non-Christians to rail against rules. Most want to be free to do whatever they desire, and they look upon rules and laws and the like as constraints on their “freedom”. They want the maximum ability to do as
A dozen boys aged 11-16 trapped in a flooded mountain cave in northern Thailand with their football coach for over two weeks have all been rescued. As millions of people prayed and watched the media coverage, the thirteen have been
Today President Trump has just named his preferred candidate for the Supreme Court vacancy left by justice Kennedy. He is Brett Kavanaugh who has served 12 years on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals. The 53-year-old is a Catholic, a
The internet and social media have created a relatively new and malicious monster: the troll. Today mischievous and irksome trolls seem to be everywhere, and anyone who seeks to share truth online will encounter a regular army of these serial
OK, I admit: I have not read them, but millions of others have. The much-loved Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie novels are under attack by the PC censorship brigade. The books are deemed to be racist and
So what happens to marriage when believers get to heaven? The passage we are discussing here seems to tell us that it will become superfluous. That may be of concern to many, especially those who have had a close, loving
As always, Christians must think carefully, clearly, and above all biblically, about all things. We must use our minds for the glory of God as we deal with the pressing issues of the day. A solid biblical worldview must inform
At the very heart of Christian theology is the notion of the triune God, and the idea of the deity of Christ. Both these doctrines – properly understood and explained – have always been at the centre of Christian orthodoxy.
Life is full of things we may covet, long for, desire, seek, thirst after, and dream of. But of course not everything we keenly desire is obtainable, at least by normal means – and moral means. We can get many
OK, another somewhat misleading title – but an attention grabber perhaps. The truth is, when we are dealing with the most exalted, complex and mind-boggling reality there is – the God who is there – it can never be simple
History is full of surprises. That includes the big picture as well as the finer details. Nations can come and go. Nations can change. Sure, they often change for the worse, and many will disappear into oblivion. But sometimes a
The Christian religion is one in which books really matter. Reading and writing matter greatly to biblical Christianity. It is a bookish religion. Note, I did not say Christians are bookish. Sadly that is not true of most Christians today.
Anyone who follows American politics knows how important it is to get the right sort of president in, because – among other things – he is the one who nominates new Supreme Court of the United States’ justices when one
As has been often said, if it weren’t for double standards, most folks on the left would have no standards at all. In the West this duplicity and hypocrisy from the left is ever on display. Countless examples of it
