When Santayana told us to never ignore the lessons of history lest we repeat its mistakes, he could not have been more correct. And those who do study history see his advice being played out – that is, ignored –
Life in this world is filled with tears. And if this life was all there was, then this would be terribly tragic indeed. But the Christian believes there is much more than this life, and that one day all tears
Europe is in a real bad way. Secularism, immorality, porous borders, an inability to understand Islam for what it is, the rapid decline of Christianity, a loss of purpose and identity – these and other factors have resulted in a
Another day, another Islamic terror attack. More innocent men, women and children slaughtered once again by devout followers of Islam. More blood on Western streets. More carnage and mayhem. This time it was on the streets of Barcelona, Spain.
Anyone familiar with the Scriptures and church history knows that often a time of national crisis is met with a time of corporate prayer. Dire straits call for a radical response, and nothing is more radical than national prayer and
The new epic war film Dunkirk is doing quite well in the cinemas. I just went to see it, and it is well worth going to. It celebrates and commemorates one of the more amazing operations carried out during WWII.

In yet another terror attack in the West, a bomb has exploded at a pop concert in Manchester, with 19 confirmed dead and 59 injured so far. The blast went off at an Ariana Grande concert, and police are saying
Stockholm, Sweden: the latest Western location to experience firsthand the religion of peace at work. This time, another truck attack, killing and wounding many. The terrorist attack has only just occurred hours ago, but now we are learning more details

It was Christianity that helped to create the West, including Europe, and it is the erosion of Christianity and the rise of Islam that is destroying the West – especially Europe. We see evidence of this everywhere, and the future
