One can never say too much about the love of God. I have written many articles dealing with this tremendous attribute of God, but there can always be plenty more. That is because the love of God is always to
One of the most tragic words found in all of Scripture are those recorded in the book of Jeremiah: “The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it this way. But what will
Lessons from what? Or who? OK, so I have once again caught many of you off guard – and I am referring to Christians here. I have often written words of exhortation about getting into the Hebrew Scriptures, and how
As I have said so often before, Christians who do not read the Old Testament are robbing themselves. They are also robbing God, since a full 77 per cent of the Christian Bible is made up of the Hebrew Scriptures.
Important new books in the areas of theology, biblical studies, apologetics, ethics and related fields continue to emerge, and I try to keep up with some of these volumes, at least those I consider to be some of the better
A text often used by those of the religious left, or those advocating for a type of socialism, is Lev. 25. Here we find Yahweh’s instructions on giving the land rest every seventh year (vv. 1-7), and the Year of
Mix and match eating arrangements are common – and acceptable – in cafeterias. Grab a tray, pick what you like, and pass over the rest. This is fine for eating out. However it does not work so well with religious
The Judeo-Christian worldview is unique among the religions and philosophies of the world in affirming that human beings are made in the image of God. It is the uniqueness of humans that sets these two religions apart from all others.
The neo-atheists are having a field day, with vitriol-soaked books pouring from the presses of late. The new militant crusade of the God-haters may indicate a bit of panic on their part. They had long felt that religion was on
It is a strange fact of life that those groups who most go on and on about love, acceptance, tolerance and peace can often be the most intolerant and hate-filled folk around. Those who are most vocal about demanding that
This is a very important book. That is because this is a very important subject tackled by an important author. Indeed, Guinness is one of our finest Christian commentators and thinkers. He was an early associate of Francis
Since we do not have the original manuscripts of the New Testament (the autographs), we must rely on copies of it, and we must determine which copies are closest to the original and most accurate and reliable. This is the
The longer I live, and the longer I live as a Christian, the more tragic cases I encounter of people I have known who were once vibrant Christians, but are now completely living as pagans, having resolutely rejected the Christian
Regrettably far too many Christians like Christianity primarily just for one thing: it is a neat form of life insurance. They have made a decision for Jesus at one point in their lives, and they figure that really is about
There are millions of Christians today who read Scriptures many times over, but live just like atheists. They read the Word of God but they don’t believe, they don’t live it. To read the Word daily yet ignore its clear
I have said it before, and I might as well keep saying it: contemporary Western Christians are in desperate need of developing a theology of suffering. We have picked up this strange and unbiblical idea that Christians are never supposed
