On Not Suffering Fools Gladly

Jun 23, 2017

I must begin this piece by making a confession. I have long thought about this phrase, and have long thought about writing something on it. But I figured it was more or less a worldly phrase, and maybe not one

The Bible and Copyright Law

Jun 23, 2017

This may seem like an odd issue to write about, but some of you may have had a few questions about all this now and then. The main reason I have for writing this is the fact that just moments

Ten Theses on Theology

Jun 22, 2017

I wish to make a few basic points about theology here. Theology is important, but like anything, we can get way off base with it. As is so often the case, avoiding unbiblical extremes is imperative. People can go in

Terrorism: When Truth Disappears

Jun 21, 2017

Note: I do not favour any acts of terror, or any violence against innocent civilians.

With yet more European terrorism – this time in Brussels, Paris and London – we have to once again restate basic truths. Never mind that

The 5 Solas Series

Jun 20, 2017

With this year being the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation (October 31, 1517 was when Martin Luther posted his 95 theses), plenty of new books have recently appeared to commemorate the event. One such work is a very helpful

More Mindless Misotheists Mangling Scripture

Jun 18, 2017

Having debated atheists, homosexual activists, and hard-core lefties for many decades now, I find that there is nothing new under the sun coming from these guys. We just get the same old tired objections which have been answered multiple times,

Targeting Conservatives – Literally

Jun 15, 2017

In a genuine act of political terrorism and an actual despicable hate crime, a leftwing Trump-hater has just recently gone on a shooting spree, targeting Republican politicians practicing for a bi-partisan baseball game. As you know, five people have been

Christians and Yoga

Jun 13, 2017

A really lousy piece that appeared in today’s Herald Sun entitled “Yoga classes banned for ridiculous reason” deserves some attention. The reporter must have had too much spare time on his hands, and the subeditor too much empty space to

Two Questions about God and Evil

Jun 10, 2017

God, and evil, are two of the biggest issues one can possibly discuss. And when they are brought together this is not something any short article can do proper justice to – not when entire libraries are filled with books

On the UK General Election

Jun 9, 2017

Theresa May’s April 18 gamble to call a snap election looks to have been a very bad call indeed. She wanted to enhance the small majority that David Cameron had won in the 2015 election, and she especially campaigned on

Two Humanities, Two Destinies

Jun 7, 2017

I remember some years ago a very liberal Christian attacked me for suggesting that there are actually two classes of humanity: the people of God, and those who are not God’s people. He thought that this was an unloving, judgmental

Evil, and Humanity Without God

Jun 5, 2017

The latest Islamic terror attack – this time at London Bridge – has in one sense sort of dampened what I was going to say here. But I will say it anyway. In the face of such blatant evil, it
