The parable of the orange tree

Back in the 1970s I remember reading a tract of the story of a man who ventured into Orange County to pick oranges. It has a very pointed message for the Christian church today, even more so than it did back then. The story, or parable, is called: THE PARABLE OF THE ORANGE TREE by […]

Apollo moon landing hoax and the ‘Face on Mars’

According to some people, denying evolution and believing biblical creation is like saying that NASA faked the Moon landings. That’s how I sometimes hear people speak of my biblical creation worldview on origins. However, to say that 6-day biblical creation, also known as Young Earth Creation, has any correspondence to the moon-landing-hoax theory, by any […]

Popery – the Accommodation of Christianity to the Natural Heart

I have never heard of Edward Hoare until today. If he is anywhere typical of the average Protestant minister of the early 19th century, I would say that Protestant churches of that era must have been absolutely overflowing with the truth of the Gospel! How many Protestant ministers today are teaching the truths, principles and […]

Who is the rock?

One of the most misunderstood passages of Scripture is the account when the Apostle Peter acknowledges Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the living God. The Father through Holy Spirit reveals to Peter who Jesus is  (Matthew 16:13-20, Mark 8:27-30; Luke 9:18-20; John 6:66-71). This is the passage where Jesus speaks of building His […]

What biblical repentance is not!

After watching Ray Comfort’s new film Audacity, I realised that he preaches Lordship salvation. If you are unaware of what that is, it is the need to add works to grace in order to obtain salvation. That is quite distinct from works as evidence of salvation. In the film when asked “… so all I need […]

‘Dark photons’: another cosmic fudge factor

First it was dark matter,1 then came dark energy,2 followed by dark fluid,3 dark flow,4 and dark radiation5; and now a new entity is suggested for the dark sector of particle physics—dark photons.

The big bang is pagan philosophy

Is the big bang evolution story of the Universe really science? And is the big bang a valid starting point to argue that science supports the biblical narrative history from the Genesis account and elsewhere? Can we consider a big bang creation in our apologetics? Foundations for our apologetics In apologetics1 we are engaged in a […]
