As you might be aware, a week before Christmas two Scandinavian students were murdered while hiking in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. They were: 28-year-old Norwegian Maren Ueland and 24-year-old Dane Louisa Vesterager Jespersen. The horrific deaths (including decapitation) were
Simply opening the day’s newspapers, or tuning into the electronic news media outlets, can often reveal rather jarring juxtapositions. Today some of the talking points are lions, the ongoing expose of Planned Parenthood, and various reactions to both.
The book of Revelation, also known as The Apocalypse (the Greek word being used here), is of course one of the more intriguing and often mysterious books found in all of Scripture. It has fascinated and puzzled believers for millennia
If you don’t know what I am talking about here, perhaps I need to add a fourth response: that of rank ignorance. This is of course the university in Kenya where 148 people – mostly Christians – were killed by

So did you hear about the mass demo of Muslims in Sydney worried about Islamic extremism? Did you catch the big turnout of Muslims in Paris denouncing jihad? Did you notice the tens of thousands of Muslims marching in London
The African Islamic terror group based primarily in Nigeria is never far from the news, including its recent kidnapping of nearly 300 mainly Christian schoolgirls. Their name means ‘Western education is sin’, with their proper name being ‘The Congregation of
Every day we find the political ideology known as Islam wreaking havoc, chaos and bloodshed worldwide. The biggest threat to freedom and democracy today may well be coming from this archaic religion. Monitoring the various cases of creeping sharia and
