Christianity and modern faiths.
||“All religions will take you to God eventually”? — Only a fool
would think so!

|| “Not far” from the Kingdom of
||Many people think that they are pretty good and that God is really quite
pleased with them. This article shows that being “good”,
or even “very good”, is just not good enough. We need
more than our own goodness to please God.
|| If God is so marvellous then why is the
world in such a bloody mess?
||Lots of people want to believe in a good God but just cannot do so

good God would let such evil happen. This article shows that there
is no contradiction between the goodness and power of God and the
presence of evil in our lives.

shows why, for humans who want to be right with God, the death of Jesus was, quite
simply, the most important thing that has happened since the planet began.
|| The origins of sin: Part 2.
||Did God create a good world or a bad one?
|| Believing “on trust”.
||We all have some sort of beliefs or personal philosophies; but WHY do we
believe what we believe and how do we know that it is true?
|| Learning about money.
||Many preachers tell us that God wants to bless us financially and they make it
sound so good. Now find out what God actually said.
|| Take care! Do not be deceived.
||Every author in the New Testament warned their readers about the proliferation of false teachers in the church. So, how come we never meet any?
|| The fulfillment of the law
||Jesus fulfilled the law and that is good news for you and me, but what does this mean and how does it affect us?

and rational thought whenever religion is discussed?

||Some people say he is God, some say he was just a man. What did Jesus claim about himself?
|| Christian Jargon ... Oh, how we hate it!
||When you clear the jargon out of the way, the Christian message starts to make a lot more sense.

||Adultery is perfectly acceptable behaviour; it must be true because the bible
tells me so. Make sure you are reading the word of God intelligently.

years of religious additions have made it hard to know what
that message actually is. Here is a very brief summary.
|| Identity cards and “terrorism”
||ID cards do not prevent or hinder terrorism. It is often claimed that identity
cards will prevent, or reduce the likelihood of, ideologically inspired acts of
violence such as those perpetuated on 11th September 2001 using aircraft in America,
or the discotheque explosions on 12th October 2002 in Bali, or the commuter train
bombs on 11th March 2004 in Madrid. These claims are not supported by either
the reason or the evidence. If anything, enforced ID will make such events
