If the same carnal and compromising Christians that exist today had lived back at the time of the Exodus, we would have a very different story indeed. Instead of a hard-core power confrontation between Yahweh and his servant Moses and
I often think about the Christian life and running the race. How many folks persevere to the end, and how many simply give up along the way? Thankfully many do indeed endure and stand strong, but sadly many do not.
We are all aware of the obvious means by which Islamists are extending Islam throughout the world, and how they are attempting to establish a universal caliphate. The use of terror is a major part of jihadist expansionism. Suicide bombers
There are all sorts of reasons why people get involved in interfaith dialogue. Some are better than others. Some Christians, for example, may think in so doing they are being Christlike, or fulfilling biblical injunctions to be peacemakers and the
I should have known better. Last week the Melbourne Age printed a strange opinion piece by a former Catholic, Catherine Deveny, who now calls herself an atheist for Jesus. It was an odd piece indeed, outlining her reasons for atheism.
A day does not go by when another terror attack does not take place. This time we had a terrorist ploughing through a crowd of people in London. So far five are dead and 40 injured. The attacker drove a
Of all the countries I have monitored over the past few years, Britain is certainly at the top of my list. It seems on a weekly basis a new case of idiocy and coercive utopianism emanates from this nation. It
The Evangelical Alliance has recently released a paper entitled “Same-Sex Relationships and the Law”. The nine page document also has a five-page “Statement on Marriage and the Family” added to it. Both were penned by Brian Edgar of the EA,
The Victorian Government has recently issued a draft code on reproductive technology, stem cells and embryo research. It has been written by the Stem Cell Code of Practice Working Group. The document is entitled, “Draft Code of Ethical Practice for
The battle over motherhood continues unabated, with a recent controversy re-igniting a long standing debate. In the one corner are those who feel that government policies tend to penalise stay at home mums, while rewarding those who move into the
Anyone familiar with the Scriptures and church history knows that often a time of national crisis is met with a time of corporate prayer. Dire straits call for a radical response, and nothing is more radical than national prayer and
With this year being the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation (October 31, 1517 was when Martin Luther posted his 95 theses), plenty of new books have recently appeared to commemorate the event. One such work is a very helpful
In this irregular series I offer for your inspection a few silly posters and memes making the rounds, especially on the social media, and present some commentary about them. There is never a shortage of such items to discuss and
In Part One of this review of Young’s new book, I mentioned the general theological and ideological space he is in. It is part of the broader recent trendy fad known as the emergent church movement. I have written dozens
The Easter event is the most important event in human history. Without the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ we would all be lost – forever. The love relationship God desired with his creatures was marred by sin and rebellion,
I am rereading the book of Numbers. As the title implies, there are a lot of numbers found here – lists of Israelite tribes and census enumerations for example. There are also portions of the law being given. But there
