Nov 27, 2020 by

from Christian Concern: As the West gradually drifts from its Christian roots, how can we reconnect society not just with a personal salvation, but an all-encompassing Christian worldview that reaches every area of life? In part two of this new series by Joe Boot, Joe explains how the West has turned back to paganism throughout history. Last week, we looked at the root of the divide that society has created between a personal salvation through Jesus Christ and an all-encompassing worldview of...

The Great Reset, or Great Repression?

Nov 23, 2020 by

by Bill Muehlenberg, CultureWatch: Many are sounding the alarm about globalist technocracy and the Great Reset: No genuine Christian believes that mere man can establish heaven on earth. He has both Scripture and history fully informing him that such attempts always end up as hell on earth. Yet folks keep on trying. Mankind has always sought to set up an earthly utopia without the heavenly God. This goes all the way back to our first parents in the garden, and then the Tower of Babel. Marxism,...

Nov 10, 2020 by

by Rebecca Lowe, Radical, from Conservative Home: We need to talk about the Women and Equalities Committee. Just take its name, for a start!

Naming but not shaming. Fighting back against ‘Cancel Culture’.

Oct 8, 2020 by

by Gavin Ashenden; […]  ‘Cancel culture’ is a new phrase. It’s only been around two or three years. It represents something as horrible as it is dangerous. It involves the mob closing someone down, and taking away either their freedom to speak, their job or their place in society. What is so odd about it is that we have become sharply concerned as a society about hate and bullying. You would think that if there was any consistency around, anything that acted as a weapon for bullying and...
