Why scientists say it’s rational to believe in God

Jan 12, 2020 by

by Will Jones, The Conservative Woman: IS belief in God rational? Can it be proved beyond reasonable doubt? The Bible seems to say yes: ‘What can be known about God is plain to people,’ writes St Paul in Romans 1.19-20, ‘because God has shown it to them. Ever since the creation of the world his eternal power and divine nature, invisible though they are, have been understood and seen through the things he has made. So they are without excuse.’ The ancient philosophers agreed, with both Plato...

As the State Grows the Church Shrinks

Jan 12, 2020 by

by Bill Muehlenberg, CultureWatch: A few days ago I penned yet another piece seeking to make the case for Christian social and political involvement. Unlike some believers who think that Christians should have nothing to do with politics and the surrounding culture, the New Testament makes a strong case that we should be involved.

What if we made our MPs go to church?

Jan 2, 2020 by

by Niall Gooch, UnHerd: Power does funny things to people, and it is no bad thing to have some humility thrust upon you. When a senior member of the Habsburg family dies, and is entombed in the Imperial Crypt under Vienna’s Capuchin Church, the Kapuzinerkirche, the interment is preceded by a remarkable ritual. A herald knocks on the door of the church, and a Capuchin friar asks “Who seeks entry?” The herald lists the numerous styles and titles of the departed, to which the friar responds “We...

World Religions Versus Christianity

Dec 30, 2019 by

by Bill Muehlenberg, CultureWatch: How does Christianity differ from all the other world religions?
