We have heard of the horrific events experienced by Coptic Christians at the hands of ISIS fanatics who have been beheaded in Libya. This direct attack on Christian’s by Muslims who are following direct commands from the Quran (Sura 8:12 and 47:4) has generated significant press coverage although this particular incident is just the tip of the ice-berg in terms of the barbaric violence experienced by the victims of ISIS.
Despite the horror experienced by both the victims of this attack and the grieving friends and relatives, comfort can be taken by the promises in the book of Revelation – a wonderful 1,000-year reign with Christ is guaranteed to… Continue reading
Anti-semitism in Europe is clearly escalating and there appears to be no end in sight at present. This can take the form of direct violence and aggression as has been evident from many deadly attacks in European cities in recent months. It can also take the form of continual political pressure and we have already blogged about one example of this with the boycotting of Israeli goods.

It is often said that all religion is essentially the same and that Christian’s do not have any moral high-ground over Muslims as both religions have been historically responsible for atrocities.

Interestingly, this article has been written by an atheist who has no allegiance to any particular religion – he makes some very… Continue reading

For an atheist, we are… Continue reading
Anyone would think Stephen Fry thrives on belittling belief in God as we have covered previously when he answers the question What should we think about death? So how do you think Stephen would answer the question of what he would say to God if he faces Him after death? Well, you can watch his surprising answer below in a recent interview:
Even the interviewer seemed stunned as he brazenly accuses God of being capricious and stupid and that he would ask God, ‘How dare you?’ when referring to the existence of evil in the world.
There are a few thoughts that leap out from this clip:
- What basis does… Continue reading
