The Persecution of Christians in Australia has become overtly demonstrated with the dismissal of Australia’s best Rugby player, Israel Folau, by the commercially controlled Australian Rugby Union for publicly expressing his Christian viewpoint in a social media tweet last week. The which-hunt continues for other Christians who like Mr Folau’s post, such as Wallabies players Samu Kerevi and Allan Alaalatoa, and Australian Football League (“Aussie-rules”) players Geelong champion Gary Ablett and Carlton midfielder Matt Kennedy. Staff writers from news.com.au have gone one step further and named elite sportsmen Aaron Hall and Zac Smith who have been noted to pray with them.

A response by Dr H. Chant to a much viewed talk on “The Bible and Homosexuality” by M. VInes. In spite of widely quoted claims to the contrary, people with homosexual inclinations can change. Their position is not fixed. There is always hope in every situation of release through Christ.
German philosopher Immanuel Kant posed three famous questions at the root of all philosophical enquiry in his book Critique of Pure Reason in 1781-1787. What can I know? What must I do? What may I hope? Western luminaries, celebrities and notaries reflecting upon their successful lives often seek to answer these very same questions in one form or another.

Most will offer an optimism in human reason or progress which is not substantiated by historical experience. Many of the more honest ones will say they have more questions than they did at the beginning of their careers. Dr James Fratzia applies Biblical understanding to these questions.
There is an enormous difference between knowing, being known, and knowledge of God. The essential characteristic of a christian is not theological knowledge, but personally knowing God and being known by Him, a gift of the Holy Spirit, not something which can be educated.
The Jihadist attack on Paris is actually an expression of the ancient resistance to God by fallen spiritual beings and their human followers.
Don’t Give Up, Don’t Give In is a biography of the life of Louis Zamperini, and amazing Italian American man who became a Christian. He was a scoundrel, and Olympian in the 1938 Berlin Olympics, a bombadier in the USAF in the Pacific, a survivor floating in the pacific, a tortured Japanese prisoner of War, a husband, a Christian, a father then a mentor and inspiration to countless people, both celebrities and delinquents. The most amazing thing about this man is the power of the spirit of God in him to transform him and empower his wonderful life.

How can we know things reliably and chose freely when our reason, memory, interpetation of our experience, our traditions, our systems of belief and our scientific endeavours are inherently unreliable. What if we can discern things spiritually and we have things revealed to us directly by and all-knowing God. Would our will then be genuinely free?
The subject of spiritual gifts is often divisive and is usually concurrent with much improper and unhelpful church practice.
From a Biblical perspective, a Christian is someone who has received the Holy Spirit
