Yahweh and Interfaith Dialogue

Jan 14, 2014

“I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God.” So says Yahweh in Exodus 20:5. The true and living God brooks no rivals, and he will not allow his people to wallow in any false god. We see these themes

Peace on Earth and Interfaith Dialogue

Nov 30, 2008

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

Right and Wrong Interfaith Dialogue

Sep 19, 2006

Most attempts at interfaith dialogue are doomed from the start, as they play down real differences between religions, and appeal to a lowest common denominator. As any serious student of the world’s major religions will attest, there exist very big

Idolatry and Interfaith

Islam’s Long History of Targeting Europe

Jul 18, 2016

Europe has always been a major target of Islam throughout its 1400-year history. What we see taking place today with jihadist attack in major European cities, Islamic no-go zones in many European locales, and creeping sharia, etc, demonstrates the ongoing

Cluelessness is Not Next To Godliness

Nov 3, 2015

Tragically far too many believers seem to glide through life completely oblivious to the various wars and battles we are in, the array of enemies encircling us, and the ever increasing anti-Christian bigotry in the West. Everywhere the faith is

Apostasy’s Bitter Fruit

Oct 6, 2015

Sin leads to more sin, and error leads to more error. When we reject God and his Word – even if claiming to represent him – we begin the steep descent into increasing rebellion, idolatry and apostasy. We have the

A Divisive Faith

Sep 17, 2014

Plenty of theologically illiterate types like to talk about unity and harmony and oneness and other cushy concepts. They think that religion is OK if we just get rid of the hard edges, ease up on the distinctions, and just

Dumbfounding Dhimmitude

Jul 11, 2014

When they hand out prizes for mental and moral meltdowns, as well as prime examples of deluded dhimmitude, I would think this fellow could win hands down. He checks all the boxes for rank ignorance, damaging deception, paralysing political correctness,

Waking Up To Islam

Dec 19, 2013

When it comes to understanding the true nature of Islam, just like the true nature of communism decades earlier, there are basically two groups of people out there: those who know what a genuine menace and threat it is, and

Great News For Muslims

Apr 14, 2013

The most loving thing you can tell a Muslim is that God loves them, and that his son Jesus Christ died on a cross for them and then rose again that their sins might be forgiven and they might have

The Death of the UK

Apr 4, 2013

The huge vacuum created by the growing secularisation of the UK in particular and the West in general cannot of course remain as is. It must be filled with something, and that is exactly what is happening with the rise

Lessons From Numbers

Feb 8, 2013

No, this is not about some counting quiz, or fun things we can get from math. It is about some spiritual lessons and truths derived from the Old Testament book of Numbers, a book I have just again gone through
