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

No Business As Usual In Wartime Featured

I had the privilege of speaking to a group of committed believers in an inner city church recently. They were eager to hear about some of the battles we are involved in. I shared many of the areas where faith, family and freedom are under direct attack, then challenged them to stand up and be...

Disney’s Rainbow Activism Featured

Written by

About the only thing worse than rabid anti-Christian bigotry is all the clueless Christians who do not know or care about it. There are so many believers who have their heads in the sand – they are totally oblivious to the very real war that has been declared against us and our children.

Equality, Inequality and the Transgender Revolution Featured

Written by

The word “equality” is thrown around all the time in our politically correct culture. “Fairness” is another such term which we hear constantly. But sadly there is a lot of fuzzy thinking as to what these terms actually mean. That is certainly the case with the homosexual and...

Faith, Foolishness and Presumption Featured

Written by

Christians can be real nutters at times. They may think they are being faith-filled disciples of Christ but sometimes they are just plain idiots! They are not in fact exercising great faith, but are demonstrating great foolishness, gullibility and presumption.

Beer, Bibles, Bullies and Bigotry Featured

If anything is absolutely crystal clear by now, it is this: those who scream the most about diversity, acceptance and tolerance are the most intolerant folks around. The secular left in general and the militant homosexual lobby in particular are obvious and blatant examples of this.

Heaven, Hope and Households Featured

It seems that one new study has found that atheists are having fewer children than religious folks, and it seeks to explain why this is. This would not be the first time this topic has arisen, but it is one of the most recent to explore this interesting fact.

Ours is Not a Likeable, Sissified Faith Featured

Call them what you will: evangellyfish, spineless wonders, cowards, wimps for Jesus, churchians, adherents to the gospel of nice, and so on, but they are all around us.

No, God is Not Transgender Featured

Telling lies about God and what God’s Word says is a common practice of those who seek to justify their rebellion and sin. Sadly, we do not just have individuals doing this, or even just churches, but entire denominations. Consider the Metropolitan Community Church which exists to promote and...

Second Thoughts on Darwinism Featured

One of the most difficult things one can do today is dare to offer a critique of the reigning Darwinian paradigm. It is not unlike daring to leave Islam: it is considered to be apostasy and death is the required response. While Darwin doubters may not be killed for their recalcitrance, they can...

Blatant Hypocrisy in the Culture Wars Featured

More Anti-Free Speech Fascism Featured

I was part of the radical 60s counter-culture, and one of the things we made a real big stink about was free speech. We insisted that everyone had a right to say anything they wanted anytime, and denying them that right was a sure sign of fascism.

This Scriptural Word Has a Sting in Its Tale Featured

OK, there would be various phrases and sentences in the Bible which are encouraging and uplifting, but are also ominous, even frightening. One prime candidate of such a two-edged sword would be Revelation 23:21: “I have given her time to repent”.

Is God Fighting For Us or Against Us? Featured

Yesterday I wrote a piece asking, “Whose Side is God On?” I looked at an episode in the life of Joshua, and quoted Abraham Lincoln who, when asked if God was on his side, said this: “Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s...

Whose Side is God On? Featured

Written by

Around the time of the American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln was asked if God was on his side. His response is a classic: “Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.”

Lincoln actually thought much about this...

The Ongoing War on the Gospel Featured

When Jesus warned his disciples that they would be dragged before local councils, magistrates, rulers and authorities (see eg., Mark 13:9; Luke 12:11-12), he made it clear that the world hates him, and the world will hate his followers. Persecution and opposition are always the mark of the true...
