Another Brave Female Champion

Mar 27, 2015

It seems that as I write about great culture warriors and real heroes who are making a difference, increasingly I am writing about women. Nothing wrong with that at all of course, although it does raise the question: where are

More Christian Atheists

Mar 25, 2015

Yep, you read that right: Christian atheists. Believe it or not, there are folks out there who claim to be Christians – even Christian leaders – who also proudly inform us that they don’t believe in God. Yep, makes perfect

Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore and Christianity

Mar 23, 2015

Today the founding Prime Minister of Singapore passed away at age 91. He is rightly credited with single-handedly turning Singapore from a third-world backwater to a first-world success story. One of the wealthiest nations in the world, the Singapore miracle

Fleecing the Flock of God

Mar 14, 2015

One of the most shocking passages in all of the Old Testament is Jeremiah 5:31: “The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it this way. But what will you do in the

Katy Perry: God Told You What?

Feb 10, 2015

I would like to begin this piece by informing you that God spoke to me. Yes he did, and this is what he told me: “Bill I want you to know that adultery is just peachy.” And this is not

Yet Another Arrogant Atheist Rant

Feb 1, 2015

One would wish that the angry atheists came up with something new for a change – something original or something clever. Instead, all we get from them are the same old tired clichés and bumper sticker objections that have been

Hope, Makeovers, and a New Beginning

Jan 26, 2015

There are plenty of makeover shows around promising new beginnings. Whether it is a new backyard, a new house, a new hairdo or a whole new body, many of these shows claim that your life will be radically transformed if

Making Cheap Excuses for Rebellion

Jan 24, 2015

There are all sorts of lousy excuses atheists and unbelievers make about not coming to faith in Christ. And there are plenty of cheap excuses made by those who leave the Christian faith as well. I have heard plenty of

Remembering Churchill

Jan 23, 2015

Fifty years ago Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill died. He was born on November 30, 1874, and died on January 24, 1965. He was without doubt one of the greatest leaders of last century, and his legacy will forever be with us.

We Need More People Like Linda Gibbons

Oct 1, 2014

So what are you doing with your life? Are you making a difference for Christ and the Kingdom? What are your priorities in life? What motivates you? For example, are you doing anything for the millions of unborn babies being

The Australian Army’s War Against Christianity

Jul 10, 2014

Like so many institutions around the West, the Australian Army has become a hotbed of political correctness and anti-Christian bigotry. It will side with every idiotic cause around while actively siding against Christians. And tragically, Major Bernie Gaynor knows all

More Clueless Celebs

Jul 1, 2014

I have hesitated on writing about this. The story has now been around for several days and is causing no small stir. But since I have written so often about celebutards in general, and this guy in particular and his

Osteen Once More

Jun 8, 2014

If he was not the most popular preacher in America, with the largest church and the most followers, I would likely not be writing much about Joel Osteen. But because he is, it is imperative that I do discuss the

Stand Up For Babies? You Will Be Arrested

Mar 4, 2014

For daring to stand up for the unborn, a Queensland man has been arrested – again. One of the most committed pro-lifers in Australia, Graham Preston, was again behind bars, awaiting his fate. He has spent plenty of time in

Ben Carson, POTUS, and the SDA

Feb 26, 2014

I could be amiss here, but it seemed pretty clear to me that when Ben Carson released his 2012 book, America the Beautiful, he was contemplating life in politics, if not a run for the White House. With his

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

No Neutrality Here Katy Perry

Jan 28, 2014

I am not much of a fan of pop culture, pop music, or pop celebrities. The whole scene is one big turn off to me – indeed, it is mostly so boring and banal. But unless one is a complete
