The Only Hope for the West

Feb 18, 2016

Leaders come and go and nations come and go. God can use both for his purposes. Think of a Moses, or the judges (as in the book of Judges), or Esther, or even a pagan king like Cyrus of Persia

Notable Christians: George Whitefield

Mar 31, 2015

When we think of the Great Awakening of the 18th century, the name George Whitefield must always be associated with this. Along with John and Charles Wesley, no one else was so much a part of this remarkable revival

The Palin Choice: Giving Conservatives Hope

Sep 1, 2008

US Republican Presidential nominee John McCain has not been the favourite choice of conservatives. He is far from ideal in a number of areas (eg., he is pro-embryo stem cell research; he opposes same-sex marriage but also opposes a federal

So It’s Julia, Again

Feb 27, 2012

A week is a long time in politics. And what a week it’s been. Two very unsavoury types viciously slugging it out in most unedifying fashion. As I wrote earlier, it is all rather like Alien vs Predator. I was

Out of Control Abortion Myths

Feb 12, 2017

Whenever the abortion debate comes up, you can expect some pretty wild and woolly offerings from the pro-death camp. They seem to thrive on ad hominem attacks, non-sequiturs, red herrings, emotionalism, and just plain lunacy when it comes to defending

Trump Wins

Is Trump a Christian?

Oct 12, 2016

Without wishing to start yet another world war (and if folks want to go on yet another attack, please stay away thanks – I have had enough!), some have asked me what I think about the rumours that have been

Christians and the American Election

Oct 4, 2016

I am not a prophet, nor the son of a prophet, but I am convinced that America is basically finished. Not only has it run with two of the most despicable, debauched, and diabolical candidates for president ever, but the

Identity Madness, Education, and the PC Police

Jul 20, 2016

OK, let’s cut to the quick: the revolutionaries of the left have declared war on everything. They are so intent on destroying Western civilisation and its Judeo-Christian underpinnings that they are quite happy to wreak havoc everywhere and on everyone.

And Now They Are Pointing the Gun At Me

Jun 18, 2016

Well that did not take very long. Just days after the Orlando massacre I have now had folks say that I am personally responsible for it. Yes you read that right. Now I have had a militant homosexual activist actually

Against Christian Fatalism

May 6, 2016

There are many vital Christian doctrines which are so grand and so majestic that entire libraries are filled with large tomes discussing them, and even all that is not fully sufficient to do these themes justice. Thus it may be
