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 God of Israel Featured

Written by

“I the Lord do not change.” We find that statement in the Old Testament – in Malachi 3:6. The New Testament affirms the same truth. For example James 1:17 says this: “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not...

There Is No ‘Proclamation-Free’ Gospel Featured

Written by

For many decades now in the West we have been told that there is no truth, or at best, truth is simply what you believe it to be. Belief in absolute truth, like in absolute morality, is seen to be the height of intolerance, arrogance and divisiveness.

We are told that what is preventing us from all...

There Can Be No Peace Featured

Written by

Many people today are proclaiming “peace, peace” when there is no peace. They seem to think that everything is just rosy, and they treat those of us who seek to warn of real dangers and real threats as if we were simply fear-mongers, and just being far too negative.

That of course was a...

There can be no more obvious example of a monumental David v Goliath battle than that of Christian rugby player Israel Folau v the rainbow militants, most of the media, corporate bullies like ANZ, Qantas, HCF and Rugby Australia, and even deluded and clueless Christian critics.

Rock Stars and Life Guidance Featured

Written by

Pop stars and rock stars are not usually known as great and enduring moral philosophers. And we should not expect them to be. But nonetheless, often what they say and sing about becomes a creed to live by, at least for all their adoring fans.

If a fave rocker said it, a legion of fans will believe...

Folau: The Never Ending Story Featured

Written by

Lest people think I might be obsessed with Folau, they need to understand that it is not me who is obsessed, but his many enemies who will just NOT stop their ongoing persecution of him. The folks at GoFundMe thought they had won by pulling his funding campaign, only to find that twice as much was...

The masses are awaking from their slumber. They are mad, and they are not going to take it anymore.

Folau, Faith, Freedom, and Fake Friends Featured

Written by

The Israel Folau story seems to be never ending. But that is because it deals with some of the most important things there are, including the place of religious liberty in an increasingly secular and hostile society. This is NOT just about Israel Folau. It is about all of us. If they silence Folau...

Folau, the Left, and Double Standards Featured

Written by

When I penned my 15th piece on Israel Folau yesterday, I really thought that would be the last one – for sure! But it seems that every day, if not every hour, a new development arises. New twists and turns keep coming up, and the latest is a real doozy.

I spoke yesterday about all the hysteria...

The Haters and Bigots Are Still After Folau Featured

Written by

Having already written 14 full or partial articles in the past 14 months about Christian Rugby star Israel Folau, I really did not think I would be writing any more. But as anti-Christian bigotry and Folau-bashing keeps ramping up, it looks like I need to do yet another piece.

Now the God-hating...

Worldviews: Ultimately a Theological War Featured

Written by

Everywhere we look we find conflict. There are political wars, there are ideological wars, there are culture wars, and there are religious wars. Overwhelmingly, behind all this is a much larger war – a war of worldviews. To understand the many battles waging around us, we must get a grasp of...

That the Western church has some pressing problems goes without saying. While pockets of believers remain faithful and true to Christ and his Word, we have far too much rank disbelief, disobedience and deception found all over the place.

Sadly there is never a shortage of examples of this. I...

Judgment-Free Christianity: An Express Train To Hell Featured

When the diabolical values and beliefs of the world so penetrate and take over the values and beliefs of the church, you know that it is the church that loses, not the world. And we see this happening throughout the West right now. Instead of Christians thinking and acting like Christians, most...

“As Long As It Makes You Happy” Featured

Written by

One of the dumbest bits of advice anyone can give you is to run with whatever makes you happy. This has become an unofficial default ethical principle for most people in the West. They may not always be able to articulate it, but they live it: if it makes you happy, then go for it.

There is in fact...

On Christian Political Involvement Featured

Written by

I have written dozens of pieces explaining why it is fully biblical and fully Christian for believers to be involved in politics. Yet I still keep getting folks trying to tell me that this is just not on, or that it is a waste of time, or that it is “unspiritual,” or that it is not what...

Such are the times that we now live in that to simply proclaim pure, unadulterated facts in the classroom can result in you getting kicked out. To affirm what everyone has always known throughout human history has now become a very risky thing to do.

The Christian holds dual citizenship. He has two passports. He is a citizen of this world and of his own country, as well as a citizen of the next world. Thus he lives his life in both places. Yes, there is often tension and conflict between the two, but that is the way it is for the Christian...

Should Christians Love Their Country? Featured

Written by

I am not aware of too many Christians who do not live in some country somewhere. Unless they permanently live in a space shuttle, they are from a country. And even that person is likely to still be a citizen of some country, and that space station would belong to some nation.

So unless they are a...

Here is a mathematical formula you can count on: the more that evil and immorality and idolatry triumph in a land, the more the attack on Christianity will ramp up. We basically have an inverse ratio going on here: as a culture becomes more ungodly, more immoral and more decadent, the more...

Give Me One Real Christian Over a Thousand Fake Ones Featured

OK, we all have things that cheese us off. We all have things that get our goat. One thing that really bugs me is when an admittedly flawed and far from perfect Christian seeks to do all he can to serve his Lord, especially in the public arena, but gets attacked for it by other believers.

It seems...

‘But “Homosexuality” is Not in the Bible!’ Featured

As soon as Adam and Eve disobeyed God, the excuse-making began. And it has been that way ever since. Sinners who love their sin will do everything they can to try to convince themselves and others that their sin is not actually sinful.
