"God is light; in him there is no darkness at all." (1 John 1:5)
So says the Apostle John, with such simplicity that we can miss the mind-blowing reality behind it.
Without the God of light you are left to what one famous atheist calls the "night of nothingness."
Without the God of light, "There is darkness without and when I die there will be...Continue Reading

Love and the dating game
One of the largest objections to faith is the issue of injustice: "How can there be so much injustice in the world? Why doesn't God do something about it?"
But, when you start to read the Bible, you begin to realise that God also has this objection. He is shocked and wounded by the injustices committed in the world, and outraged that his own people cause...Continue Reading

The greatest atheist of the 20th Century, Bertrand...Continue Reading

‘Everything I learned about human nature I learned from me,’ wrote the playwright Anton Chekhov, and the characters he so vividly created – with all their selfishness, their hatred, their dark and desperate desires, their hopelessness – they do rather well to describe us all.
