Dumbfounding Dhimmitude

Jul 11, 2014

When they hand out prizes for mental and moral meltdowns, as well as prime examples of deluded dhimmitude, I would think this fellow could win hands down. He checks all the boxes for rank ignorance, damaging deception, paralysing political correctness,

No, We Are Not From the Same Faith Tradition

Jul 3, 2014

It is quite common for Muslim apologists and clueless Christians to ramble on about how the big three religions all have a common source, and that we are all really spiritual brothers. They claim that Islam, Christianity and Judaism all

One Brave Christian Woman Contra Mundum

Feb 8, 2014

In my books, Heidi Mund is a Christian superstar, a champion, and a hero. We so desperately need more like her. Instead we have millions of gutless, spineless effeminate churchians who will never open their mouth about anything. Indeed, our

Yahweh and Interfaith Dialogue

Jan 14, 2014

“I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God.” So says Yahweh in Exodus 20:5. The true and living God brooks no rivals, and he will not allow his people to wallow in any false god. We see these themes

Waking Up To Islam

Dec 19, 2013

When it comes to understanding the true nature of Islam, just like the true nature of communism decades earlier, there are basically two groups of people out there: those who know what a genuine menace and threat it is, and

Yet More Recommended Reading

May 3, 2013

Here is another in an irregular series on new books which I am happy to recommend. This time it features a mix of titles by both Christian and non-Christian authors. Topics covered include theology, politics, ethics, Islam and history.

Great News For Muslims

Apr 14, 2013

The most loving thing you can tell a Muslim is that God loves them, and that his son Jesus Christ died on a cross for them and then rose again that their sins might be forgiven and they might have

Idolatry and Interfaith

Apr 8, 2013

The interfaith movement is all the rage at the moment. And as biblical Christians we should not be surprised at this. The attempt to water down the distinctiveness of the Christian faith has long been occurring, but today especially the

The Death of the UK

Apr 4, 2013

The huge vacuum created by the growing secularisation of the UK in particular and the West in general cannot of course remain as is. It must be filled with something, and that is exactly what is happening with the rise

Islam No Match For Praying Christians

Mar 25, 2013

Since I have written several articles about the big Islamic Peace Conference in Melbourne, asking people to pray for it and engage in some spiritual warfare over it, it is appropriate that I now record the aftermath of the whole

Islamic Dawah Conference

Mar 14, 2013

The Muslim “Peace Conference” is looking more and more to be anything but. It not only may not go ahead this weekend, but if it does, plenty of decidedly non-peaceful situations will have transpired. Indeed, a lot has happened since

World Religion Day

Jan 14, 2012

You may not have known it, but tomorrow is World Religion Day. The aim seems to be for everyone to get along in one big happy religious family, since at bottom religions have so much common ground. For those who

Church, State, and Religious Freedom

Sep 28, 2011

OK, I was wrong. I have complained about the war against Christianity and how the secular state is squeezing it out of every part of the public arena. I have noted how the iron wall between church and state has

9/11 Ten Years On

Sep 1, 2011

In around 10 days we will have the tenth anniversary of one of the worst peacetime massacres in recent history. In theory the West should have learned a few lessons since 9/11. But sadly, we seem more adroit at not

Interfaith Gone Wild

Jul 19, 2011

Several religious press releases have just been uncovered which believers should be aware about. They alert us to ancient developments in attempts at interfaith dialogue between God’s people and those of other faiths. One covers activities in the Old Testament,

Chrislam: Ten Reasons To Say ‘No’

Jun 28, 2011

If Christ is who he claims to be, and is the only way to reconciliation with God, then we can expect that plenty of counterfeits and deceptive substitutes will come along to derail us from Christ and his mission. Of
