We Told You So

Aug 24, 2013

Warnings tend to fall on deaf ears. The lies of those who seek to destroy us are heard so often and so loudly that far too many people tend to believe them. Those sounding the alarm are dismissed as crackpots

Facing Up To the Porn Plague

Why the Demand For Homosexual Marriage?

Mar 24, 2012

As I have carefully documented in my new book, Strained Relations, not only do most people not give a rip about homosexual marriage, but nor do most homosexuals. It was never even on the radar until just recently, but

On Finding God’s Will, Part One

May 20, 2011

Even the Stones Will Speak Out

Mar 5, 2011

The Poison of Religious Vilification Laws

Sep 20, 2009

Among the worst laws to have been recently enacted are religious vilification laws. They are a direct threat to freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of conscience. They serve no useful purpose in a democratic society. But such

Are You Wasting Your Life?

May 20, 2017

This may be one of the most important questions any Christian can ask of himself or herself. Of course we don’t usually think in those terms. We assume that God is fully pleased with all that we do, and that

Dead Baby Jewellery

May 5, 2017

Yes you read that right. And you are likely as incredulous as when you read the title of an article I penned five years ago: “Pepsi and Dead Babies” (see link below). It seems an Australian company is actually taking

The Rainbow Ringwraiths

Apr 5, 2017

Totalitarians and fascists have always sought to demonise their opponents, in part by marking them out from the “normal” majority. They are clearly identified one way or another as recalcitrants, and treated accordingly. Simply consider how Jews fared as the

That the trans revolution is causing massive devastation to countless families and children, as well as to society and culture as a whole, is something I have now documented numerous times. So too have many others. But our concerns are

Heaven, Hope and Households

Mar 14, 2017

It seems that one new study has found that atheists are having fewer children than religious folks, and it seeks to explain why this is. This would not be the first time this topic has arisen, but it is one

Bathroom Wars

Feb 17, 2017

Until recently no one had any good reason to write an article about bathrooms. Why would they have? Sadly however, bathrooms have now become a hot topic, all because of the radical gender bender wars which are raging all around

The Importance of Political Involvement

Nov 17, 2016

Politics is not everything and politics cannot save us. But the political realm is nonetheless quite important and we avoid political engagement to our own detriment. It is incumbent upon all believers to have some political awareness and involvement. If
