An interesting discussion came up on the social media just recently. One terrific conservative writer spoke about meeting an Australian Premier and commented on her Christian faith. I and others quickly pointed out that just two days earlier she was
Anyone following American politics and the culture wars that are going on there will know of two recent cases of the concept of ‘hearing from God’ or ‘God speaking to me’ being thrown around in the popular discussion. For a
I had not planned to write a piece on the passing of the great evangelist Billy Graham. After all, what more could be said about the man that hasn’t already been said a million times over? But watching the very
The homosexual activists have long sought to rewrite the Bible in order to make their lifestyle appear to be scripturally acceptable. They have failed big time in this, but the latest case of sexual and social militancy, transgenderism, is seeking
Here are three truths you can take to the bank:
-The radicals on the left have long known the value of targeting our children.
-The ABC is a radical left outfit actively pushing the homosexual agenda.
-Homosexuals have long been
There would be many thousands of volumes written on the issues of war and peace, and for good reason. Issues of life and death are fundamental, and we need to have some sort of ethical framework by which we assess
Perhaps 40 or 50 years ago I could have gotten away with writing a few articles on homosexuality from a biblical point of view. But as the militant movement spread, and its tentacles reached everywhere, including in the churches and
In the ‘old days’ the newly created social media platforms like MySpace were designed to help people more easily connect with one another, share news, keep in touch, and so on. And like many new technologies, some did really well
The other day I penned a piece about the life and ministry of the great evangelist George Whitefield. It was largely based on the two-volume, 1200-page biography by Arnold Dallimore. There are so many lessons for us today that we
Many folks, if asked to name a religious figure who opposed Hitler and the Nazis, would be able to name Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The Lutheran pastor was indeed a leading figure in the German Christian community who resolutely opposed this diabolical
For those few ferociously faithful followers of this website, you may have noticed that things have been a bit quiet here for the past few days. That is because I have been rather busy, and the main thing occupying my
Suffering is a universal phenomenon. We all suffer in various ways, and we all have questions as to why we do. Like Job of old, we may have plenty of questions about suffering, but we may not always get the
The true prophet identifies with and represents the people of God before God, but he also identifies with and represents God before the people of God. Jeremiah is a classic example of this. Here I want to highlight both of
Many people arguing for the moral and social legitimacy of surrogacy will rather recklessly throw out the issue of adoption, believing that the two are quite similar things. But the truth is, they could not be more different. This is
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.
Most Christians have someone in their lives who has inspired them, encouraged them, helped to disciple them, and who they greatly look up to. Often it is a Christian friend or a pastor or someone from a local fellowship. But
