Whither Biblical Discernment?

Jun 2, 2013

I believe it is not amiss to suggest that biblical discernment may be at an all-time low in the contemporary church. Our ability to think biblically about what is taking place in our world and in our culture seems to

The End of Comfortable Christianity

Aug 26, 2016

Let’s face it: believers in the West have had a dream run up until recently. It has been easy street, big time. Christians and non-Christians pretty much lived together conflict-free, and often one was not all that distinguishable from the

Statism and the De-Sexed Society

May 25, 2016

The Total State wants nothing standing in between it and the naked individual. Complete control by the authoritarians is much easier that way of course when there is no one to mediate between the person and the All-Powerful State. Things

Dealing With the New Trans-Madness

Oct 24, 2015

The recent announcement that Bruce Jenner will be named “Woman of the Year” highlights the fact that a war on reality has been declared, and insanity now rules our elites – at least in the West. And the entire transgender

Liberation Theology and Marxism

May 5, 2015

We do not hear all that much about liberation theology nowadays. But it certainly was a major issue in the 70s and 80s, and I wrote extensively about it at the time. Although primarily a phenomena of Latin America, and

The False Gospel of False Grace

Feb 1, 2015

Here is a biblical truth you can bank on: any gospel which makes it easier for you to sin, and to feel OK about sinning, is not a gospel of Jesus Christ, but comes straight out of the pits of

The Traditions of Men, and Being Anesthetised

Oct 20, 2014

Pardon the somewhat odd title – let me explain: While evangelical Christians can look down on other Christian groups for adding to Scripture, or twisting Scripture, or misreading Scripture, or allowing man-made traditions to trump Scripture, the sad truth is,

Yep, I am Now a Terrorist

Sep 25, 2014

A leftist from the lamestream media thinks I am a terrorist and what I do is equivalent to IS beheading people. Yes, she actually said that. But then again, this gal may be in a contest to see who can

There Are Zombies Amongst Us

Sep 6, 2014

Since they seem to be all the rage at the moment, it is fitting that we know a little bit about zombies. Evidently they are known primarily as animated corpses, carrying on in mindless capacity. The stuff of folklore and

On Heresy Hunters

Apr 9, 2014

On so many fronts, getting the biblical balance right is always crucial. It is always so easy to go off on unbiblical extremes. When it comes to the issue of heresy, there are two extremes to avoid. One is to

Please, Let My People Think

Mar 31, 2014

Is biblical discernment at an all-time low in the Christian church today? Is the ability of Western Christians to think critically, carefully and logically at a premium today? Any incisive Christian observer would have to offer an unambiguous ‘yes’ to

Some More Pretty Dumb Posters

Oct 24, 2013

This seems to now be an ongoing, albeit irregular, series. There never seems to be a shortage of rather dumb and nonsensical posters and quotes making the rounds, especially in the social media. People happily post these quotes and posters,

On Strange Fire, Part Two

Oct 18, 2013

In Part One of this article I began discussing John MacArthur’s Strange Fire conference being held in southern California. I offered there some background to the various debates, including the cessationist/continuationist debate. I also laid out where I stand –

Christians and Foreign Aid

Sep 18, 2013

Regrettably, many Christians do not think very carefully or biblically about the important social issues of the day. At best the church often just simply slavishly follows whatever the world is thinking, and just parrots the world’s nostrums instead of
