A Christian Perspective on the World Today

Faith Faith

Expected Messiahs

The world’s major religions are all expecting the arrival of the prophesied Chosen One. How can we know which of them are right, and what does this say about our human longings?

Saved from myself

One of the most exciting days of my 13-year-old life was turned upside down in an instant. I would have loved to pin the blame on someone else, but it was all my fault.

Read the manual

Would you like to achieve “expert status” on your job? How about in life? There’s an excellent manual that can show you how.

The longest time out

How much time would you need to decide whether God’s dealings with humanity have been fair or not? Would 1000 years be enough?

In the beginning. . .

Our contemporary culture’s fascination with origin stories is an impulse as old as human history. How does accepting the veracity of a particular origin story affect our sense of meaning? Our sense of self?

Don’t panic: nothing to see here!

Planet Earth seems wracked by a series of disasters that are increasing in frequency and intensity. Are these the signs of the end of the world that Jesus predicted? And if yes, what are we supposed to do about it?

Faith in tough times

Finding strength, meaning and a positive attitude when disaster strikes.

Not too young to lead

The media is fond of using religious language to describe the actions and appeal of teenage climate activist, Greta Thunberg, even calling her a “prophet”. Is she a prophet, biblically speaking? Do genuine prophets exist in the modern age?

From a pawn to a King

“No-one can serve two masters,” Jesus said. One man’s life vividly illustrates the battle raging between the forces of good and evil that are each seeking our allegiance.

Armageddon looming

It’s a word thrown around to refer to a cataclysmic war—perhaps the war that ends life as we know it. But what is the original biblical meaning of Armageddon?

Is that you, God?

Sometimes it seems like there are a hundred voices shouting to get our attention—from both the outside and within us. How do we learn to identify the voice of God amid the clamour?

The love of family

Sometimes it takes hard times for us to realise just how vital our families are.
