Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus

The Latin phrase, Extra ecclesiam nulla salus, means, “Outside the Church there is no ‎salvation”. It refers to the Christian belief that the Church is essential to God’s plan of ‎salvation. It sounds Roman Catholic. It is catholic (i.e. universal), but not Roman Catholic. In ‎fact, this doctrine preceded, survived, and continued after the papal […]

Our fight against the puny god of Humanism

Dear Faithful American Vision Supporter: For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive […]

The intolerance of the Nice, Squishy Tolerance People

Charlie and Bennie love each other very much. They really do. They have been together now for over 20 years and their love has grown year by year. To all intents and purposes they are just like any other couple. Of course they have their ups and downs, just like all couples. There have been […]

Roy Hibbert's thumbs

What exactly was Roy Hibbert of the Indiana Pacers fined $75,000 for after his post-match press conference on Saturday? In his speech, he used what is in my view the worst expletive of all – you know the one that Quentin Tarantino really likes and has been putting in his films for years without incurring […]

The evolutionary glitch

It’s really, really easy to explain human behavior using God’s Word. The fall of man means that we are disconnected with God and so vertically messed up; disconnected with each other and so horizontally messed up; and even disconnected with ourselves and so internally messed up. Of course it’s a lot more complex than this. […]

Christians and Conspiracies

My previous posting regarding Al-Qaeda seems to have attracted a fair amount of interest, some of it for the wrong reasons. Some commentators seemed to think that I was positioning myself with the 9/11 conspiracy theorists who believe that the atrocities committed on that day were an inside job. Of those who seemed to think I was advocating […]

Dr. Jason Lisle reviews How to Answer the Fool

A review of How to Answer the Fool by Dr. Jason Lisle: "In this video, Sye Ten Bruggencate masterfully demonstrates the biblical way to defend the Christian faith. For far too long Christians have allowed unbelievers to pretend to be the judge and jury in the debate over the Christian faith. But God is the […]

Who is this Al Qaeda?

You will no doubt have heard about the brutal and atrocious killing of a soldier outside a British army base on Wednesday. According to witnesses, the two perpetrators used a car to run him over outside the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, South East London, before setting upon him with knives and meat cleavers and […]

Who made God?

Of all the hard questions produced by atheists, the granddaddy of them all is surely this: “If God made everything, who made God?” To understand the thinking behind the question, let’s turn to the High Priest of Atheism, Professor Dawkins himself. In his 400-odd page polemic against his creator, The God Delusion, he wrote the […]

Epicurus and the problem of evil

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? Thus spake Epicurus, the Greek philosopher who lived from 341-270 […]

Conservatism is dead ... Long live progressivism

There was a man who bought a car in 1953. He loved that car and couldn't imagine ever having to part with it. He took a great deal of care over it, and could often be seen in his driveway cleaning, polishing and repairing. But try as he might to preserve that car from time […]

The Cleveland kidnappings...a liberal red-herring

Liberals advance many arguments against the use of the death penalty for heinous crimes. One of the more common is that if the state executes a murderer, it loses moral authority because it has stooped to the same level as the offender. This type of argumentation is not just confined to the issue of the […]
