Sometimes I come across an article which is so appallingly bad, that I am left with just two choices; ignore it altogether and hope that no one else sees it, or, if it is getting some traction, reply to it.
The omnipresence, or immensity, of God is another amazing divine attribute worth considering. On the one hand it can be rather straightforward to understand. Simply put, God is unlimited in relation to space. He is present everywhere and in all
In the defence of biblical Christianity one must keep affirming certain truths while rebutting certain errors. One error that increasingly raises its ugly head of late is the one that seeks to claim that Christians and Muslims worship the same
The Christian faith is anything but a girlie faith. It is not for the faint of heart nor for woosies. It is strong stuff for strong people. It makes hard demands and expects firm responses. If you want to live
One has to speak about false prophets so often because there are so many of them around. Scripture throughout warns against false prophets, and we must take this matter quite seriously indeed. Jesus spoke often about false prophets and the
It is a general rule of life that the more important or valuable something is, the more chances are it will be abused and misused. The greater something is, the more it will be attacked and slandered and misrepresented. So
The fact that there are a lot of really dumb, unhelpful, and just plain unbiblical things being said by so many Christians today is quite telling. It is an indication of how poorly we are doing in getting contemporary believers
“Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves
It is fully to be expected that non-Christians will vehemently reject what is clearly taught in the Word of God. Happens all the time. Sadly however there are a growing number of people who claim to be Christian who also
As we have shown in Part One, the truth is, on biblical and exegetical grounds, the annihilationists have very little space to stand on. The Scriptures consistently and coherently support the traditional understanding of hell as eternal punishment.
Today it seems that theology is as popular for Christians as a ham sandwich is for Muslims. Most Christians avoid it like the plague. The surrounding culture says that the main thing is to feel good and be happy, so
I have said this plenty of times before and I will say it again: when you are leading a megachurch, there is massive temptation to keep the masses happy and the money flowing by telling people what they want to
This weekend some 70,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses from around the world are expected to converge upon Etihad Stadium in Melbourne for an international conference. Since so many JWs will be in town you may well come across some, so it is
It is a perennial temptation of Christians to get their eye off the ball, forget what real biblical priorities are, and go off half-cocked on some hobby horse which is not really important at all. They will take up a
No day passes without some tragedy or horrific case of suffering. And when these things happen, inevitably the questions arise: Why? Where was God? How could God allow this to happen? At the moment much of the world is still
We all know that babies, toddlers and very small children are pretty helpless and hopeless at looking after themselves. They need all sorts of help, and all sorts of care. Early on they need everything – they need to be
Simply put, what most people talk about today when discussing God’s love has little if anything to do with the real love of God. That is, it is often a sentimental, humanistic understanding, which bears little or no likeness to
Here is another in an irregular series on new books which I am happy to recommend. This time it features a mix of titles by both Christian and non-Christian authors. Topics covered include theology, politics, ethics, Islam and history.
Like attracts like – for good or ill. Biblical Christians love to associate with others who love God and his Word supremely. And apostates are happy to hang around with other apostates. True prophets of God congregate with others of
