But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

The Christophobic ABC Strikes Again Featured

Written by

Never one to let a good chance to attack Christians and tell porkies about Christianity slip away, “our” taxpayer-funded ABC has been at it again. Of course they make a living (at our expense) in doing this. I have lost count of the number of pieces I have written documenting ugly cases...

Islam and Sharia Creep Spinning Out of Control Featured

Written by

If and when we wake up one day in the West to find the Bible banned, churches shut down, and sharia police roaming the streets to enforce strict compliance to the religion of peace, one thing will be certain: some of us have been warning about such things for a very long time, but sadly such...

There is much to celebrate and enjoy in life, and if you are a Christian you have plenty of reasons to rejoice and be glad. But that joy is in Christ, not in this world. Yes God is our source of peace and joy, but life itself is a real mixed bag.

We live in a very dark and fallen world, so there is...

We all know about the murderous Islamic terror groups such as IS and all the horrific persecution of Christians and others they are involved in. Christians in the West are also facing persecution, although admittedly nowhere near as severe – so far. But for those on the receiving end of this...

The French Revolution, Genocide, and the Secular Left Featured

Written by

The 228th Bastille Day has just been celebrated in France – at least by some. Not everyone is crazy about the storming of the Bastille and the terror and bloodshed that followed. The French Revolution has rightly been seen by many as a precursor to so much political violence and mob rule of...

At the turn of last century battles raged between theological conservatives and theological liberals, especially in Britain and America. The historical background to all this goes back another century to Europe – more on that in a moment. The issues however are still very much relevant to...

Peterson and Homosexuality: Just What is the Message? Featured

Written by

Retired Presbyterian pastor, best-selling author, and the creator of the Bible paraphrase The Message Eugene Peterson has caused a big stir by saying he is happy with homosexuality and homosexual marriage. And he has caused another stir by soon thereafter “retracting” what he said.

On Christian Assurance Featured

Written by

In writing about theological issues one must bear in mind that biblical truths are bound together and must be understood together. As D. A. Carson puts it, “every part of Christian doctrine is tied, one way or another, to every other part”.

So to discuss something like the assurance of...

“Once Saved, Always Saved” Featured

Written by

The question as to whether a Christian can lose his salvation is another one of those hard-core theological debates that gets thrashed around ad infinitum, ad nauseam. Positions are usually entrenched, the opposition view is often misrepresented, and heat rather than light far too often results.

The Great Liberal Party Death Wish Featured

Written by

Sir Robert Menzies would be rolling in his grave right about now. Every time the current crop of Liberal Party leaders open their mouths, more madness flows out, making all true conservatives cringe even more.

Five Hallmarks of Spiritual Maturity Featured

Written by

The New Testament is full of exhortations and commands to grow in our Christian faith, to become all we can be in Christ, and to be mature, wise and complete as Christ followers. Spiritual maturity is the aim of the Christian, not remaining a spiritual baby or toddler.

We are to grow up in Christ,...

On Telling God How He Must Operate Featured

Written by

Sadly there are many Christians who sit in judgment on other Christians and are effectively sitting in judgment on God as well. That is, they will tell other believers that this or that experience cannot be of God and that they are in deep deception. Now, can that sometimes be the case? Sure, often...

On Family Loyalty and Christian Discipleship Featured

Sometimes the sayings of Jesus can seem to be a bit hard to understand, especially if it seems – superficially at least – that they may contradict other biblical truths. Consider the issue of marriage and family. There is no question that God has ordained both as his divinely appointed...

Trans-sanity Spiralling Out of Control Featured

The proverbial ‘If I had a dollar for every time…’ is nowhere as true as in the world of transgender madness, and simply trying to keep up with it all. In documenting the daily examples of this craziness, a dollar coming my way for each case would certainly have covered a lengthy...

Difficult Bible Passages: 1 Corinthians 13:10 Featured

This is a passage which is problematic because of various strong views associated with it. So it might be better referred to as a contentious passage. It says this: “but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.” What disappears? And what is this completeness?

On Euthanasia, Again Featured

Written by

In my previous two articles I looked at some shocking cases of the pro-death culture in action. Some of these examples were actual cases of euthanasia or assisted suicide. Others were certainly in the same ball park, but could be technically labelled somewhat differently.

And because a few folks...

Sometimes an issue or event is so momentous that it is well worth talking about more than once. Just yesterday I discussed three recent cases of euthanasia (or cases closely related to it), and one of them was so significant and so shocking that it clearly needs to be revisited.

Making Suicide Acceptable Featured

The push for legalised euthanasia, or assisted suicide, is taking an existing problem and making it much worse. All over the West suicide rates are high, yet the ‘compassion as killing’ crowd simply is making the situation even more pronounced. Three recent examples of this should leave...

If you went only by the mainstream media, you would think that the sex industry is all harmless fun, the women really love it, and things are just peachy. You would get the Pretty Woman fantasy view of things (you know, the Richard Gere and Julia Roberts 1990 film). But the reality is much...
