Say No To a Counsel of Despair

Aug 15, 2017

The Christian is both an optimist and a realist. We are optimistic because of God. God is greater than all our problems, all our calamities, all our trials, and all our opposition. With God we can overcome, we can have

Morally Derelict Christian Leaders

Aug 14, 2017

If there ever was an issue that should separate the men from the boys, the wheat from the tares – spiritually speaking – it would be the current attack on marriage by the homosexual activists. If there ever was a

Apostates Destroying Our Churches

Aug 10, 2017

The Bible is full of warnings about those who would lead God’s people astray with lies and false teachings, and drag them into sinful, immoral lifestyles. We should steer clear of such people and have nothing to do with them.

“They Became Fools”

Aug 8, 2017

The God we serve is a God of reality, of truth, and of rationality. Thus it is not surprising that as men shake their fists at their Creator and pretend he does not exist, they increasingly move into a world

How Not To Argue For Homosexual Marriage

Aug 3, 2017

There would be as many senseless and just plain false “Christian” arguments for homosexual marriage as there are wolves in sheep’s clothing. They are a dime a dozen. I have encountered countless versions of them, refuted heaps of them, and

Whose Side Are You On Christian Leaders?

Aug 2, 2017

I have a really hard time telling which is worse: anti-Christian militants who are doing all they can to shut down Christians, stymie the public proclamation of the gospel, and attack religious freedom, or the clueless and seemingly men-pleasing Christian

Yesterday I wrote about a very worrying news report that spoke of an “unofficial” policy in Queensland which would keep four-year-old children from sharing religious-themed Christmas cards or sharing the gospel while at school. This was the recommendation of a

The Ongoing War on Christianity in Australia

Jul 27, 2017

Hot on the heels of the ABC’s attack piece on evangelical Christians, we have yet more cases of anti-Christian bigotry. They also come from the loony left, and are just the latest of many relentless attacks on Christianity. The newest

The Blatant Bias of the ABC: Easy To Prove

Jul 24, 2017

Consider the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, along with the mainstream media as a whole: ‘You’ll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy’. Oops, that was actually how Obi-Wan Kenobi described the Mos Eisley Spaceport to Luke Skywalker. But
