Where Are the Prophets to Our Church and Culture?

Nov 12, 2019 by

by Bill Muehlenberg, CultureWatch: Amazing and much-needed prophetic words from the late, great Francis Schaeffer: The good news is this: when the times get the darkest, God will raise up prophets to confront the situation, speak to his people, and declare much-needed truth. But the bad news is this: these prophets are invariably rejected. When they are the most needed, they are often the least heeded. Simply read the Old Testament to see this happening time and time again. The same when...

Reductionist, atheist and pseudo-scientific psychologist, asFreud was, Jung was a great antidote to his aggressive anti-religious scientism....

Nov 12, 2019 by

by David Robertson, theweeflea: It must have seemed like a good idea at the time. Australia’s ABC has a debate programme called Q&A, which last week decided to have an all feminist panel and moderator. It went badly wrong, to the extent that the programme has now been pulled from all of ABC’s platforms and is the subject of an investigation. Among the panelists, who were all incredibly ‘woke’, was Egyptian-American journalist Mona Eltahawy. She was asked a question...

Remembrance? No, our valiant years are being erased

Nov 10, 2019 by

By Chris McGovern, The Conservative Woman: TODAY is Remembrance Sunday. In Whitehall, the great and the good will bow their heads in recollection of the fallen. They should also bow their heads in shame for the low status conferred on that memory in the Government’s National Curriculum for History in English schools. Neither World War One nor World War Two is required teaching. Instead, these nation-defining events are relegated to the status of ‘Examples (non-statutory)’ that ‘could’ be...
