Ten Theses on Theology

Jun 22, 2017

I wish to make a few basic points about theology here. Theology is important, but like anything, we can get way off base with it. As is so often the case, avoiding unbiblical extremes is imperative. People can go in

The 5 Solas Series

Jun 20, 2017

With this year being the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation (October 31, 1517 was when Martin Luther posted his 95 theses), plenty of new books have recently appeared to commemorate the event. One such work is a very helpful

Christians and Yoga

Jun 13, 2017

A really lousy piece that appeared in today’s Herald Sun entitled “Yoga classes banned for ridiculous reason” deserves some attention. The reporter must have had too much spare time on his hands, and the subeditor too much empty space to

Ours is Not a Likeable, Sissified Faith

Mar 14, 2017

Call them what you will: evangellyfish, spineless wonders, cowards, wimps for Jesus, churchians, adherents to the gospel of nice, and so on, but they are all around us. And I have written often about these believers: those who shy away

No, God is Not Transgender

Mar 12, 2017

Telling lies about God and what God’s Word says is a common practice of those who seek to justify their rebellion and sin. Sadly, we do not just have individuals doing this, or even just churches, but entire denominations. Consider

Feb 10, 2017

In an age where mankind reigns supreme, and God – if he is thought to exist at all – is merely an appendage to us and our whims, the biblical gospel is very easily and so often dumbed down into
