This Is Exactly Where All This Is Heading

Jun 19, 2012

I have to take some comfort from the fact that the prophet Jeremiah basically delivered the same message to a stiff-necked and dull-of-hearing people for some 40 years. Over and over again he made his warnings, but they fell on

Church and Nation at Risk in UK

Coming Soon To a Website Near You

But We Told You So

What We Are Up Against

May 31, 2012

Let’s Get Those Lousy Christians

May 25, 2012

OK, so the militants are not saying it quite as clearly as that, but this is exactly what they are after: to fully and finally shut down the churches – at least all churches which still take the Word of

Equal Opportunities Are Only For Some

May 15, 2012

As if we still needed proof that our various ‘Equal Opportunity Commissions’ and the like are anything but, we now have the story of an EOC member being forced to resign. And his heinous crime? He actually believes marriage is

Homosexual Marriage: Everything Will Change

May 15, 2012

Consider this headline: ?“An equal opportunity commission board member who signed a submission against same-sex marriage has resigned.” A respected doctor and community leader has been forced to resign for a horrific crime: yes, he dared to say marriage was

On Persecution

Mar 9, 2012

I often write about cases of Christians being persecuted, the church coming under attack, and Christianity being targeted. In the West we find cases of this occurring every day. A war has been declared against Christianity, and things are getting
