I have said it before: I strongly believe God can and does providentially raise up leaders in times of great darkness and crisis to avert what looks like an utterly terrible outcome. I often cite the heroic trio of Reagan,
OK, the next US Presidential election is not scheduled for another few years, but the Party that lost the unlosable election in 2016 is already sniffing out possible candidates. And a speech at a Golden Globes ceremony may have given
Reading like a Who’s Who of Hollywood actresses, the number of women who have come forward and claimed that they were raped or sexually assaulted and harassed by film producer Harvey Weinstein is now well over 60 and still climbing.
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.
It was a key principle of Plato’s Socrates that one should follow the evidence wherever it leads. He also said that the ‘unexamined life is not worth living’. Thus those who claim to be seekers after truth need to carefully
Sadly some Christians have a very low view of art, and in good measure this is due to a faulty understanding and application of the Second Commandment. The prohibition against graven images has been wrongly interpreted and as a result
Our God is a God of beauty. One simply has to look at the world he created to see beauty everywhere: majestic mountains, wondrous oceans, incredible sunsets, amazing flowers, thundering waterfalls, and so on. Even in a fallen world we
OK, it has been at least a day since I last wrote about the mind-numbing insanity coming from the uber-left Dan Andrews’ Labor government in Victoria. If you blink you will miss yet another outrage. Just days ago I wrote
About the only thing worse than rabid anti-Christian bigotry is all the clueless Christians who do not know or care about it. There are so many believers who have their heads in the sand – they are totally oblivious to
Yesterday I wrote an article featuring a hard core leftist and Democrat Party operative carrying on, with a straight face, about how gender is purely whatever we want it to be. He fully seemed to believe this. See the link
All around the world Christmas is a time where hope is renewed. It celebrates the birth of the one who came to save us. It is about God incarnate, our saviour. That is the real meaning of Christmas, and it
If media coverage is anything to go by, most people in the West know a whole lot more about the Kardashian clan than they do about the divine family: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We would expect this to be
One can find spiritual parallels with most things in life, so let me try one here, utilising pop music. There are many musical artists who have stood the test of time, while others have burst on the scene, only to
Some of the most important questions to be asked and answered by any worldview worth taking seriously concerns the issue of personhood. Such questions would include: What is it to be human? Who are we? Where did we come from?
Anyone who knows me realises that any excuse will do for buying books, reading books, and writing about books. So a few recent articles about books were enough of an excuse for me to put pen to paper – or
I seem to have the sort of personality or temperament where I tend to see more evil, pain, suffering and ugliness in the world than I do goodness, pleasure, joy and beauty. Both make sense in the Christian
The Summer Olympics at Rio are now history (although the closing ceremony is still taking place as I write). There was plenty of gold on offer, and plenty of glory, but what I want to emphasise here is the fact
If a race of hostile aliens from another planet wanted to know how to destroy the West from within, they could scarcely improve upon what we are already doing to ourselves. By dumbing down an entire generation, teaching them to
