“Homosexual Christians”?

Oct 19, 2015

The lengths to which some people will go to destroy Scripture to justify the homosexual lifestyle can be quite extraordinary. I have heard just about every distortion, lie and perversion of the biblical data there is on this issue. The

Difficult Bible Passages: 2 Thessalonians 2:11

Oct 15, 2015

Whenever Scripture discusses end times scenarios we must take great care. Much of the apocalyptic genre as found in Daniel and Revelation can be laden with mysterious symbolism and so on which can be difficult to accurately interpret.

And even

On Mecca and Natural Disasters

Sep 13, 2015

That all sorts of nasty and destructive things happen in nature is not in dispute. But for the Christian, how much of this might be the result of the direct hand of God is a matter of some debate. The

On the Book of Daniel

Sep 11, 2015

I am reading the book of Daniel once again and have been so impressed with the fact that it is such an utterly remarkable book in so many ways. The short book is divided into two main parts: chapters 1-6

Church Visitors Versus Church Members

Jul 11, 2015

There is a lot of fuzzy thinking found amongst Christians concerning sinners and the church. We so often hear things like: “Our church welcomes everyone” or “No one is excluded from our church” or “Jesus accepts everyone and so do

Notable Christians: Elisabeth Elliot

Jun 16, 2015

One of God’s choice saints has passed away today. Perhaps overshadowed by her late husband Jim at first, she became one of the great Christian statesmen and ambassadors. The 88-year-old was an inspiration to millions through her life story, her

On Capital Punishment, Part 3

May 1, 2015

Some years ago I wrote a two-part article examining the biblical and theological rationale for the death penalty (DP). Since then I have also penned a two-part article looking at the secular case for it, covering philosophical, social, political and

Apocalypse Now

Apr 29, 2015

The book of Revelation, also known as The Apocalypse (the Greek word being used here), is of course one of the more intriguing and often mysterious books found in all of Scripture. It has fascinated and puzzled believers for millennia

Finishing Strong

Apr 13, 2015

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

The Sword of Romans 13

Feb 13, 2015

My topic here involves how we are to understand the sword – and the state’s use of it – as found in Paul’s discussion of government authority in Romans 13:1-7. Many scholars understand this to be a reference to the

Feb 5, 2015

A term used much in discussions about God, creation and evil comes from the Greek word telos which means end or purpose. The teleology of something has to do with its purpose or aim or goal. The teleological argument for

The False Gospel of False Grace

Feb 1, 2015

Here is a biblical truth you can bank on: any gospel which makes it easier for you to sin, and to feel OK about sinning, is not a gospel of Jesus Christ, but comes straight out of the pits of

It’s Time To Get Intolerant

Dec 28, 2014

We expect secular humanists and others like them to celebrate the idea of tolerance as the greatest good, but sadly many believers have also hopped on to this foolish bandwagon. It is as if the greatest virtue is now tolerance

Kardashian Christianity

Dec 3, 2014

Most people in the West may know little or nothing about the Bible, about Christianity, about church life – all the things that made the free West what it is today – but they likely know heaps about Kim Kardashian.

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

The Osteens and Another Gospel

Sep 4, 2014

I have penned many pieces on megachurch pastor Joel Osteen. But people say, “Oh, leave them alone” or “Don’t be so judgmental” or “We should not criticise other Christians” or “Do not touch the Lord’s anointed” etc, etc. Are they
