If you were asked to name the happiest group of people in the world, who would spring to mind? Research from the American Journal of Medical Genetics suggests that those with Down syndrome report incredibly high levels of happiness.
This is in stark contrast to the perception society likes to paint. There was a particularly notable and shocking example of this last year when Richard Dawkins claimed it was ‘immoral’ to allow Down’s babies to be born and said they should be aborted. Bizarrely, he attempted to justify this by saying the important question surrounding the abortion issue is ‘can it suffer?’ For him, it follows that based on the… Continue reading
We regularly blog on the depressing rise of Anti-Semitism that is evident in this country. The situation is particularly bad across university campuses and the University of Southampton is the latest to jump on the bandwagon by hosting a conference in April entitled ‘International Law and the State of Israel: Legitimacy, Responsibility and Exceptionalism’.

There is a well-known prophetic passage in Revelation 13 that describes a coming time where people will have to receive the ‘image of the beast’ on their right hand or forehead:

Looking up at the stars at night gives us a peek at God’s awesome creation. Ever tried to count the number of stars? The billions of stars and even galaxies only leaves us in awe of our universes magnitude. Whether you look at the complexity in our human bodies or seemly never ending galaxies we keep finding only… Continue reading
As the saying goes ‘In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes‘ and many can relate to this. However, for true Christians we know there is so much more that we can be certain of – for instance, there are numerous prophetic events still to come, some very soon, with the climax being the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ! But it seems while the Coming King is at the door, churches keep quiet about the coming judgment!
