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

We All Have a Role: Giftings and God’s Glory Featured

Written by

There is no one in the Body of Christ who is dispensable. There are no superfluous Christians. We are all needed. We all have something to offer. We all contribute to the work of the Kingdom. We all bring unique talents and giftings into the Body of Christ. That much is plainly stated in the Bible.

Killing a Culture By Killing Its History Featured

Written by

I have just returned from a very nice but brief visit to my homeland. It was great to be back in the US for a few short weeks. And as always, time and distance can really help put things into perspective. We can see things more clearly with the advantage of time, and often with the help of being...

God, Nations, Rulers, and the Affairs of Men Featured

Another national election – this time in Australia. Plenty of political machinations and moves were involved by all sides. People did all they could to get their desired candidates or parties elected. Millions of dollars and man hours were spent on getting the desired outcomes.

Yet for those...

This is What Apostasy Looks Like Featured

Written by

The Bible speaks about apostasy. Church history provides us with many cases of apostasy. But just what might it look like today? What kind of contemporary examples of it can be point to? There would be various things we could use as examples, but a recent headline pretty well fits the bill.

And it...

More on the Miracle Man Morrison Featured

imageOrdinary Australians as well as biblical Christians were clearly delighted in Saturday’s election outcome. Instead of a progressive leftist government further coercively pushing all the radical causes, we have a government that should govern sensibly and responsibly for all Australians.

Miracles and the Australian Election Featured

Written by

On Saturday May 18 Australia decided who should run the country: Scott Morrison and the Liberals, or Bill Shorten and Labor. Although there are still more votes to be counted, we now know the results: the Liberal/National Coalition will get back into office.

This will add to the past six years that...

Is This the Day Australia Commits Hari-Kari? Featured

Written by

It has just turned past 9 am on Friday here in America’s midwest, but in Australia it has just become Saturday morning. This is D-Day for the nation: election day. Will the Australian people throw away their imperfect but worthwhile past, or will they stand against the radical nihilism of the...

America, Australia and Abortion Featured

Written by

Cultural decline is always around us. Those people seeking to preserve the good and withstand the bad are always surrounded by forces and folks ever at work to tear down and destroy. There is always darkness and destruction all around us, and those seeking to maintain light and life are routinely...

Just now as I am penning this piece, someone has the great old hymn, “How Great Thou Art” playing in the background. How utterly relevant. How totally applicable. I just got back from a rather remarkable reunion of sorts. And it took a number of us back – way back.

Milano and Misopedia Featured

Written by

Who and what? I refer of course to Hollywood lefty Alyssa Milano, and the compound word derived from the Greek: ‘miso’ means hate, and ‘pedo’ refers to children. Milano and so much of the secular left really do seem to hate children. They certainly see abortion as one of the...

A Derelict Church and a Moribund Culture Featured

Written by

My thesis, which I have argued before, is fairly simple: the culture is in the state it is in largely because of the condition of the church. When the church does poorly, so does the culture. And the terms I have used in my title were chosen carefully:

-Derelict = in a very poor condition as a...

Militant Sexual Ideology and Mindless Emotivism Featured

The sexual militants are doing an absolutely terrific job of destroying Western culture. The radical sexual anarchists have been working overtime to dismantle everything that once made the West great.

Stay Away From Canada Featured

I write this piece while just several hundred miles from the Canadian border. That is because I am enjoying a short visit to Wisconsin at the moment.

Refusing the Prophetic Word Featured

Christians and Technology Featured

Written by

As the old saying goes, Christians are in the world but not of it. Thus, although we live in a fallen, sinful world, we should still seek to be salt and light in it. But we also have citizenship in another country, and we cannot get overly comfortable here.

So we must avoid two unbiblical extremes...

Difficult Bible Passages: Philippians 1:15-18 Featured

Most people do not think ahead, do not look at the big picture, and do not consider the long-term. Most at best are only thinking ahead to what they will have for dinner, or what fun they will get up to on the weekend. Sadly many Christians can be included in this myopia and lack of vision. I...

Australia will radically change if Labor wins the May 18 Federal election. This will be true in so many areas, but let me focus on just a few.
