We increasingly find the homosexual movement hopping into bed with the conservative movement. Some conservatives think that this is a good thing. I am not so sure. While it is good to have conservative allies of various stripes, are we
It is as regular as clockwork: whenever tragedy strikes the atheists and God-haters come out in force, attacking believers, taking cheap shots, and making smart-alec remarks, as if they are somehow on the high moral and intellectual ground.
Today we are heavily infected with the three plagues of political correctness, moral relativism, and a war on truth. All three of these big ticket items more or less stand or fall together. They have had a major impact on
Law without consequence is mere advice. And throughout much of the West we see this being played out: law and order is on the decline while crime is on the increase. Also on the decline is punishment. Instead of dealing
Yesterday I posted my first piece on the historic election victory of Donald Trump. In it I said that this election was all about who was disliked the most. People were not so much voting for someone as against someone
The West is undergoing a monumental moral revolution which is decisively undermining – indeed, destroying – millennia of accumulated cultural, religious and ethical tradition. This is especially found in the sexual revolution which is sweeping everything before
Os Guinness shot to fame when working with Francis Schaeffer early on at L’Abri in Switzerland, and with the publication of his 1973 volume, The Dust of Death. He has been going strong ever since, with numerous
We expect pagans to think and act like pagans. That makes perfect sense. But what we don’t expect, or shouldn’t expect, is for Christians to think and act like pagans. Christians should be on an altogether different level – they
Allow me to engage in rather broad-brush strokes here as I look at current events through the eyes of history, especially church history. I have written often about the values of Western civilisation in general, and the appalling election choices
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?
Civilisation has been defined as “the stage of human social development and organization which is considered most advanced,” or “the process by which a society or place reaches an advanced stage of social development and organization.”
G. K. Chesterton once remarked that “Certain new theologians dispute original sin, which is the only part of Christian theology which can really be proved.” Every day we see decisive evidence of the reality of sin and evil, and sometimes
I was recently reminded that one of my favourite prophetic voices of last century, Francis Schaeffer (1912-1984), in one of his volumes utilised some of the most well-known prophetic books in the Old Testament. So I hastily went to my
On August 9 the Australian federal census will take place. There have been various concerns expressed about this from different quarters. Some are legitimate concerns while others are less so. So let me look at some of these issues.
Every new day is marked by the rising of the sun, and regrettably, we are getting another daily certainty and reality: every new day sees yet another Islamic terror attack. While they of course occur each and every day all
For true conservatives and Christians, the slow death of the Republican Party in America has been clearly observable for quite some time now. One RINO loser after another has been put forward by the GOP establishment machine to become POTUS,
Thousands of zealous God-deniers turned up in Washington DC on Saturday for the second ‘Reason Rally’ (the first one was held four years ago). The funny thing about this get-together is how so many folks get all worked up about
Yesterday I penned a piece on choosing a religion. On such a complex and important topic such an article could only be the briefest of brief introductions. So here I want to pad things out a bit more, even though
