A Rant Today to Keep the Devil Away

In naming this article ‘A Rant Today to Keep the Devil Away’ I am not just butchering a common adage, but summing up my purpose in writing this post. I don’t rant often, however when I see the word of God tortured and butchered, then ranting seems most appropriate. By ‘Word of God’ I

Faulty Bible Interpretation

Hardly a week goes by that I don’t come across an example of faulty bible interpretation. By this, I do not mean interpretation that differs from mine, but rather an interpretation produced by principles and practices generally regarded as being unsound. Sometimes I encounter faulty interpretation when discussing theology or passages of the bible

TruthTalks: Apostates in the News

A dictionary definition of Apostasy is ‘an act of refusing to continue to follow, obey, or recognize a religious faith’ and I will leave it to those who know Hillsong’s Marty Sampson and his circumstances to determine the extent of his ‘falling away’. In this TruthTalk, Dr Christopher Peppler deals with certain aspects of

Apostates in the News

Of late there have been several apostates in the news. Most recently, two fairly well known ‘Christians’ proudly declared that they had renounced their Faith.

Gateways that go nowhere

Two Beastly for words

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and perhaps that is one of the reasons why John linked the book of Revelation to the star sign pictures in the heavens. For instance, look at this depiction of the constellations of Aries, Taurus, Cetus, and Orion; what a story it tells.

A dragon outmatched by an eagle and a fish

I was challenged to write my previous post on the current crisis in South Africa when I read Revelation 12:11 ‘They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.’ We as Christians testify

The Weapons of our Warfare

We know that the devil is at war with the church. This truth is implied and stated in many parts of scripture and set out clearly in Revelation 12:17; ‘Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring — those who obey God’s
