Moral and Political Clarity in an Age of IS

Dec 5, 2015

We live in an age which is so reduced to mere emoting, to clichés, to celebrity opinions, and to 30-second soundbites, that properly dealing with vital issues can be quite difficult indeed. We are so dumbed down, so historically illiterate,

The Imprecatory Psalms, Part One

Feb 2, 2012

If you read the Psalter through in one sitting (which can be done) or at least read all 150 psalms in a concentrated period of time (which I have just recently done), a number of things will stand out. One

The Imprecatory Psalms, Part Two

Feb 2, 2012

In Part One of this article I offered some general considerations as to how the Christian might approach the rather troubling imprecatory psalms. To properly tease these ideas out it is worth looking at a few imprecatory psalms in some

On God’s Justice

Mar 6, 2011

It is a bit risky to speak about God’s justice today, and here I especially have in mind talking to other believers about it. We have had such wishy washy views of God enter our churches that few want to

Faith and Family Feud

Jul 7, 2015

Let’s admit it. Most Christians really do not believe what is in their own Bibles. Sure, they give lip service to Scripture all the time. They claim to be Bible-believing Christians, and they may even take their Bibles to church

Jesus, Justice and Vindication

Sep 5, 2014

It is amazing just how many Christians have an absolutely pathetic and unbiblical view of who Jesus is. Far too many believers still think of him as a tree-hugging greenie, a peace sign-flashing hippy, or a door-to-door salesman offering personal

On Israel’s Right to Self-Defence

Jan 3, 2009

The mainstream media is up to its usual tricks: for three years now some 3,500 missiles have been fired by Hamas into Israeli territory. I don’t seem to recall much of this reported by the MSM. Yet now that Israel
