Tragically most folks do not know very much about Islam. And many do not know very much about Christianity either. If they did, they would stop making the foolish claim that the two faiths are basically the same.
Often great achievements in history are accomplished by individuals, not by groups. Sometimes the solitary figure does more to turn the course of history than an entire nation. Examples of this are many. In the early centuries of the Christian
Throughout much of the West major cities have large concrete blocks placed around high-traffic pedestrian areas. So what is that all about? Works of modern art? Not quite – they are security bollards. Security from what? Well, sadly, from basically
The formula is now down pat and fully predictable: another terror attack; usually by an Islamic refugee; Western leaders strenuously deny it is terror- or Islam-related; ‘It was a lone wolf attack by someone with mental problems’; soon enough the
As I said at the end of my article yesterday about the latest terror attack in Melbourne, it is interesting how it always seems to boil down to one common factor: no, not Islam, but mental illness! This is the
The uniqueness of Jesus Christ is what sets Christianity apart from all other religions. His origins, his birth, his actions, his teachings, his death and resurrection, and his eternal status all set him apart from every other religious figure that
One of the most pressing issues of our day is the wholesale persecution of Christians. As has often been pointed out, more Christians have died for their faith over the past century than throughout two millennia of church history. And
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.
It was inevitable: the left warring against itself. When you have a whacko ideology filled with so much PC craziness and so many things that you can get offended by, sooner or later there was going to emerge some jarring
The West is filled with clueless wonders who tell us repeatedly and adamantly that Islam is not a threat, it is a religion of peace, and the only real problem we face is “Islamophobia”. How many times have we heard
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
If and when we wake up one day in the West to find the Bible banned, churches shut down, and sharia police roaming the streets to enforce strict compliance to the religion of peace, one thing will be certain: some
The spiritual and religious makeup of a nation is not determined solely by a national census, but it can give us at least some rough ideas nonetheless. The results of the 2016 census are slowly being released, and today we
Seven dead and fifty injured in London. One man dead and three police injured in Melbourne. In both cases we had Islamic terror attacks carried out, and in both cases IS has proudly claimed responsibility. And in both cases
Nature abhors a vacuum, and so too in the spiritual, moral and political realms. The Western world was largely the product of the Judeo-Christian worldview and could not have developed as it did without it. But as the West becomes
