Sitting in a plane travelling at 600 miles an hour at an altitude of 35,000 feet gives you time to think (I am en route home from the States). The focus of my thinking has been “do” or “done?” This is the title of an address I was to give in the following week at […]

As we look around the Western world today, there is very little to encourage anyone on the moral or spiritual level. Iniquity no longer hides its face for shame; immorality is assumed to be normal; violent crime is increasing. The Churches generally are becoming weaker, many of them no longer prepared to make any stand […]

It was the third day after Jesus was crucified. As the women went early that morning to anoint the Saviour’s body, they were asking: “Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?” They need not have worried, for an angel had already descended from heaven to roll the stone away.

In the century and a half since Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species was first published, evolutionary theory has gained widespread acceptance. In fact, it is usually thought of as just another of the certainties of life—like the roundness of the earth or the existence of viruses. “Intelligent†people never dream of questioning it.

Colossians, an Exposition by John Davenant, (hardback, 956 pages),is the latest addition to the Banner of Truth’s Geneva Series of commentaries. With nearly 1000 pages, it may be viewed as a particularly daunting challenge.

The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish tears it down with her own hands. Proverbs 14:1The mainline Protestant denominations (Episcopal, Methodist, Presbyterian) are discussing homosexuality with a view to transforming their bodies into more tolerant, more diverse, and more inclusive organizations.

How long will it be before Christianity becomes illegal in Britain? This is no longer the utterly absurd and offensive question that on first blush it would appear to be.

This was my first visit to the Salisbury Conference on 7th October which was held at the city’s Emmanuel Church which is pastored by Malcolm Watts.
