Back from the dead

Back from the dead

The nation of Israel are a wonderful witness to the Living God. Back from the long dead. But although as a nation they thrive, in God’s sight they are just lifeless bodies, waiting for the One who can bring life. The Lord Jesus Christ will return to save the nation in their darkest hour and in Him they will find abundant life.

Anti-Semitism

It looks like a problem that refuses to go away. What is it and why does it matter?

Bertrand Russell on World Government

In 1961, Bertrand Russell penned a treatise entitled ‘Has man a future?’, in which he asserted that the world needs central rule. What has that got to do with us now?
