The Battle for Life, and for Children

Jan 31, 2017

We are living in what seems like unprecedented times, with little or no respect for human life, human dignity, and the well-being of our children. Everywhere adult desires and wants are trumping the rights of the child, the right to

Grand Slams, Greatness, Glory and God

Jan 30, 2017

Tennis fans no doubt will know what I am referring to here, at least with my first three Gs. They would know all about the record-breaking events of the past two weeks at the Australian Open, culminating in the amazing

Should Christians Tithe?

Jan 28, 2017

I get asked this question every so often, so it may be time to do an article on this. I have hesitated up until now for the simple reason that this is another one of those issues which, unfortunately, some

When I’m Sixty-Four

Jan 27, 2017

OK, another milestone I guess. And I even have a very famous pop song to commemorate it with. Most of you would be familiar with “When I’m Sixty-Four.” It is of course a classic song by the Beatles, released in

Australia Day or Invasion Day

Jan 26, 2017

The radical left has never been a fan of Western civilisation. It seeks at every turn to deride, attack, criticise and undermine the values and achievements of the West. So it comes as no surprise that each year when Australia

On an Interventionist God

Jan 24, 2017

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.

Terrorism in Melbourne, Again

Jan 20, 2017

By now most people know that a 26-year-old man ran down innocent men, women and children with a car in downtown Melbourne. The only thing more shocking than this is the refusal by the authorities – once again – to

Theology and God’s Sovereignty

Jan 18, 2017

A topic that has been the stuff of thousands of years of discussion is not going to get very far in a short article from me. So let me narrow things down right away: here I want to just look

Interfaith or Biblical Faith

Jan 17, 2017

There is one set of events happening all too often, while another one never seems to happen at all. The former has to do with Christian churches and Christian leaders bending over backwards to accommodate Islam. Nothing wrong with some

Can God Do Anything?

Jan 15, 2017

When discussing any topic about God we are of course greatly limited in our understanding. He is infinite and we are not. He is perfect and we are not. The good news is that God has revealed himself to us

Not All Lifestyles Are Equal

Jan 11, 2017

The sexual anarchists keep telling us that all sexual lifestyles deserve the same acceptance and endorsement, and we should not single out any behaviours as better or worse than others. But as I and others have carefully documented, there are

A Generation of Offended Snowflakes

Jan 10, 2017

While most secular lefties today would want nothing to do with such (in their view) outdated notions as the Ten Commandments, they in fact still cling to a few moral absolutes which they insist must remain inviolate. One of them

On Recovering the Reality of Sin

Jan 9, 2017

There was a time when everyone pretty much knew they were dirty rotten scoundrels. Of course back then most people had at least a vague belief in God as well. Today in the West we tend not to believe in
