Irresistible Reason for Certain
incorporating the library named
of Christ Jesus
You are invited to
Rigorous, multi-faceted Christian Apologetics
on the most important of topics,
the knowledge of God, truth and life,
giving REASON for FAITH,
with 1) LOGICAL DEMONSTRATION of the Truth of Jesus Christ,
2) RELISH in the REALITIES of the LORD of all,
in HIS WRITTEN WORD, the BIBLE, and its teachings
and 3) scope for personal interchange,
help and possible contribution
of your own, to the site.
This is now in 243 indexed
and in its 71st Edition. This appears to make it the largest Theological Set ever written, for which we praise the Lord: In Praise of Christ Jesus is its name.
work, a part of it, a trilogy of some 850,000 words
(published 1992 and 1997, and updated since as found relevant),
is titled The Shadow of a Mighty Rock:
this gives in one three volume set, a basic coverage,
demonstrating on logical grounds, that there are
no options but Jesus Christ according to the Bible,
while irrationalism invalidates itself from all argument.
For the nearly 30,000
review and overview in creation,
evolutionism, and other scientific and logical relationships
see Bulletin 105 and there have been more since.
This also includes a convenient overview of
our main Christian Apologetic method.
See also The gods of naturalism have no go! and incorporated references.
One feature is this:
using only basic biblical premises, it is shown that here lies the solution to
the age-old problem of predestination and freewill, and the only solution
available. This resolving power of the Bible is one characteristic of its status
as the word of God, for which we praise Him. First presented in the M.A. (Hons.) Melbourne
Predestination and Freewill, in some 75,000 words, in 1964, the topic and
theme has since
been extended to seven volumes and applied on many sides to 2020. All this on
this theme is presented on this
as a set thus
incorporating 6 more volumes, over hundreds of thousands of words.
Please note that the period, August 2017- June 2019 has been in Australia,
one of great portent for good or evil in government quarters.

This year, 2020, has been filled with a virus impact which has deferred
the religious challenge in view for the nation.

One is particularly keen to share the
that over the last 30 or so years,
one has examined matters of theology, philosophy, and more importantly
rational reliability and unique comprehensibility in the biblical faith,
and found NOTHING that fails to meet ANY question of this kind. These volumes, here available, present such issues extensively as one form of verification, and
being utterly unique in the world, in this respect, it is a vitally important one.
There is simply nothing like it.
In fact, the faith of biblical
is contrary in type to all other religions.
It is so, both as to empirical test
and power to rebut associated philosophies,
for whereas it excels in this,
they lack in power to provide rational test,
far less comprehensive coverage of challenge.
IN PRAISE OF CHRIST JESUS.
This work, in 2020 one of 243 harmonious volumes,
has occasion to be characterised as to its
method of production. As a dynamic fact and testimony of experience
one needs to say that it is in the most practical sense the Lord Jesus Christ
who through His Spirit has both constrained and enabled this entire work,
so that often it has even seemed He was in the same room with me.
The constraint and ability to do it was just as real as childhood or youth,
a distinct period in my life, with its own criteria.
As a set, it has been produced over some 32 years,
with an estimated full time equivalent of 20 years of labour.
For this aid and enablement,
so that in every phase He never once failed and answered every relevant call,
in May, I give Him thanks as His glory, and that of the Trinity
and the wonder of His infallible written word, is my delight.

For a more formal statement of ultimate
purpose of this site:
it is to show precisely and logically that
the Bible is objectively the word of God,
uniquely providing for inexorable demonstration and verification,
and that like it or not,
the Lord Jesus Christ is the solution,
more unchangeable than the universe,
for mankind's messings,
and source of eternal life.
Avoiding this is like avoiding water
in the desert,
and hence this salvation is recommended like peace amid din.
BULLETINS - Multi-Topic
death date prediction over some half a millenium,
These, often updated whether in
science, theology, history, national and international developments, all in
biblical terms and basis,
may be used as a quick access to essentials constantly expanding.
Titles are provided to check out relevance to your current interests in particular. They are, as part of our Web work since mid-2016 the chief way of adding to this site, especially useful as the author moves from 88 to 92 years of age, a good season for overview.
The tendency in these bulletins is to present brief, up-to-date coverages of important topics in the Christian field and its applications.

Bulletin items reaching 87 in August,113 in June 2018,127 in December),

The Bible, Starkly Superior, Vol. 2
for the Bulletins and their topics.
The total now in April-June 2020, is 168, with various presentations covering crucial aspects of topics like divine foreknowledge, hell, evolution in the thunder of its epochal failure, scriptural harmony, the Jewish People and their current status, right back to the resolution of personal predicaments, as in the now more distant USA cake-conscience case, that has concerned so many for so long now. A rather ambivalent judgment was there judicially announced: the baker was free to follow his religious convictions concerning the cake, but this was not be allowed as a precedent; and new similar seeming situations need separate review.
This kind of incredibly intrusive case is now becoming more and more pervasive, as the presumptions and presuppositions of callow atheism become more dictatorial, whether intentionally or otherwise, at the legal level. So dictatorial thrust seems to be hallowed at least in potential, while a limited view of religious liberty is permitted a peep and the Statue of Liberty is not precisely cracked at least on this occasion. We move on to more fascinating features in biblical predestination.
Recent: the brief
exposition of the prediction through DANIEL of the death date for the Messiah,
then to be coming centuries later. A very brief review of predestination and
freewill shows in a
nutshell how the Bible provides the unique resolution of this age-old
philosophical problem - which is significantly shorter than the
7 VOLUME SET

Colossians 2, SOMETHING TO
CIRCUMCISION, BAPTISM, CRUCIFIXION AND BURIAL, of minimal size is found in 167.
is New, useful for monthly updates, for AUGUST- JULY 2020
for a national emergency in this land,
initially closing in by November 7,
like heavy mist amid confusion and a growing
totalitarian tilt, once alien to these now spiritually sloping shores.
In December, confusion, evasion and confrontation all mixed in
so that in religion there appeared likely to be a virtual coup!
The strong tendency is for the nations are increasingly fulfilling their
Bible-appointed default from love, morals and truth,
with increasing vigour, their predicted embroilment.
As for Australia, this extreme experiment did not take place,
as a more moderate result came at the 2019 election.
Whether the better words about freedom of speech and religion
will be turned into improvements in actuality, remains to be seen.
In January 2020 we move to look at some of the prevailing pollutions in the cultural clichés,
and pursue this in detail in the letter, as requested by Government, to Government.
the Bulletins tend to summarise and essentialise,
and act as reminders of reality.
These include national exhortations,
international applications of the word of God,
quick summaries of content in each case, for some time back,
and are directed to honour the truth. Many crucial topics for the Christian
abound in this continual coverage.
This bulletin group can become a useful means of
sometimes quite short but variable items whether of the meaning of news
or developments or what is before our eyes in any sphere as this world lurches
to The Great Falls.
Those are the judgments of God, as
for thousands of years in detail prescribed for its wickedness,
while the salvation of God continues like the noise at the Falls,
but to those who hear it, it is as most beautiful music,
far greater than Bach and finer than Beethoven.
On Church decline as predicted (cf.
II Peter 2, II Timothy 3-4, I Timothy 4, Jeremiah 23),
a particular case is now noted.
¶ Indeed, on the Presbyterian Church in America,
it is necessary and
relevant now to speak.
Detail on its relatively recent doctrinal departure in its coverage of creation
and this Minister's resulting exposure of and departure from it, as likwise
for the fitting Formal Presentation on that severance of ties, let this be a testimony.
The latter of the above two is an open letter and a warning to the PCA, as linked.
Both constitute a very needful challenge.
Expositions on the biblical texts concerned are made available during the process,
to help a deeper understanding, for many are and have been duped by
just such assaults on the word of God as the now formally authorised Framework hypothesis!
Not even the most imaginative liberty could derive this from the biblical text by the Westminster
Confession "good and necessary inference".
A sad duty, particular errors in doctrine in
THE REPORT OF THE CREATION STUDY COMMITTEE
are shown in some detail here, and further more recently, at this presentation.
It is necessary to preach the word of God, teach it fully and faithfully,
and not to authorise what is other than this in His name,
what becomes a virtual polluting authority,
enabling a church to dither, depart or make uncertain sounds in its place.
Textual fidelity and its authority are crucial.
It is edifying to watch the testimonies of Christ (Matthew 24;24),
and Peter (II Peter 2-3), with Paul (II Timothy 4:3),
concerning the coming false prophets,
as on false teaching and false methods in store,
and then to survey as time went,
and to see these and similar predictions fulfilled before our eyes,
as also something of the way it has been done,
as for example in Life Story ... Ch. 4.
As one has taught and preached in four nations, first this device then that
is seen being used, as corruption has set in in its fourfold march.
The experience jostles complacency,
confirming the divine coverage of things to come.
It also serves as a warning and an alert, to many caught in the maelstrom.
While such things proliferate like a world plague,
the truth remains, inviolable, immovable, inescapable.
The BIBLE is the proven site for understanding
so that there
as the Reformation at its best reminded,
there and nowhere else
is to be found written,
the answer to every rational enquiry, in perspective and record,
and in particular, another prize.
Through this same Bible, there is not only information verified, but
the only sustainable answer to the philosophical conundrums
of predestination and freewill.
This is demonstrated
to the glory of God, on this site, amid presentation of the express, vital,
explicit and long heralded gift of God in that Bible, Christ Jesus in His salvation.
The linkage is intimate. The one is in the domain of reason for the faith, the other is its core, and it is within that very core that the particular solution comes.
Indeed the biblical depiction is shown here to be the only possible solution
in the predestination and freewill domain,
an unsurprising result for the word of God.
It illustrates this, that the word of God alone solves the ways of men
before the height of His glory, with His own unique nature and gracious disposition.
Moreover, while we know now only in part (I Cor. 13),
yet WHAT we are given by God in the Bible
is both harmonious in itself, and true so that any pangs of uncertainty
are utterly resolved.
This power of the Bible to give uniquely adequate answers to genuine queries
is its exclusive property. This site so presents it in its 243 books, in detail.

10 Answers to Pointed Questions
both Implicit and Explicit
each shown in some detail demonstrable on this site, each in its place.
1) Yes, you can prove that God exists, and this without using presuppositions.
2) He has from the first made man able to dismiss, defy or desire Him,
without compulsion of any kind.
3) He has given to His human creation one authorised,
written, warranted volume of His word,
made available to mankind who has misused his liberty.
The Bible alone logically qualifies for this unequivocal information.
4) This Divine Communication is objective, and not available
for re-dictation differently by man,
who may elect for his basis, a nonentity called nothing,
or other variant, irrational one and all.
Attempts to do this only increase the guilt.
It is not man's religions but God's word
about which the destiny of man is secured, with or without Him.
5) Jesus Christ is the answer to man's defiant folly,
languid indifference or other attempt or action to bypass Him.
God is able to cover this, using and providing His available power,
and to do so both in its penalty, and its results,
both intrinsic and extrinsic, since God is man's Maker and Sustainer.
6) Knowledge of these things, or their formal acceptance,
does not constitute salvation, for the mind may opine
but the heart may receive, unreservedly.
Reservations about God are not faith,
and without faith you cannot please Him.
7) There is no other cover not ony for every type of relevant
philosophical issue, but for all intellectual-moral problems,
age-old or modern, in words both internally cohesive and coherent,
and providing comprehensibility concerning the nature, meaning
and wonders of God and the position of man. Nor is there any other provision for
rescue, redemption or restoration or reconciliation with God;
but this also has resurrection and eternal life with it.
8) One major feature of this cover is its empirical conformity
of text to outcome, whether apparently impossible or not,
the most daring seeming predictions being more natural to God
than master play even to a tennis champion.
Truth is what He knows,
defines and secures.
9) One major feature of attempts to overthrow the word of God
is that, like fashions, they pass into obscurity, logically invalid,
empirically spurious, irrelevantly conceived or verbally obscure.
In this, they are like the fall of empires which God also predicts and
where relevant to His purpose, names. His precision is as real
as predicting Christ's death date and purpose
from centuries before He died
(as noted for example in Christ the Citadel... Ch. 2),
as likewise man's present state, right down to Israel's return
and its staggering victories against far greater opposition,
and the present stark military, political, moral,
psychological and cultural confusion in the world, with its
religious adventurism and pitiless pre-occupation
with death, imposed on self or others, providing
an intense spiritual pollution.
10) Exhibited in particular in conformity to His word is the current
threat to human continuance on the planet.
like a a ratchet more tensed, to appear in line with human actions
not only with radioactive potential (Matthew 24:22),
but also with its linkage
to religiously, politically or militarily manic preoccupations
which spread like bushfire.
MESSAGE FROM THE AUTHOR
Welcome to 2017, the place of the plight of man and the place of the Gospel in the starkest contrast to the reckless and relentless pursuit of evil, more and more despising God or inventing gods. It is as it was predicted to be (cf. SMR Chs. 8-9), and so in solemn fury, man works his wanderings to their most uncelestial end. It is well the Gospel is eternal, and life as given to the penitent and believing in Christ Jesus, is no less.
Look back if you will to last year.
Welcome to 2016,
which in July has brought us near to our 20th year on the Web, and
28th since the underlying labour began in 1988
following the earlier tertiary works which also enter in.
It is to provide attestation
that not only is the Bible the word of the living God, but
that this is demonstrable,
problems its statements and perspective resolve,
that in this it is
utterly unique amidst all else which claims
method in Biblical Christian Apologetics,
see this link
It is a good time to
reflect, and to be with Him who came to us
You want more on this ? Here it is.
GOD is a GOD of power and grace, goodness and peace,
and He has left us with a testimony
which it is folly to ignore,
delight to embrace, both personal and propositional.
In other words, this.
There is NO philosophical problem in principle that remains
when the resolving power of the biblical perspective and the word of God
is applied. There is no comparison:
what is based without the God of creation-redemption,
has insoluble problems like a snapped mast-head;
whereas what IS based on Him and the Bible,
His word, has resolving power without limit.
Why ignore what meets the challenges,
for the sake of what catastrophically does not!
Why be subdued by the clamorous
spirit of the Age,
or indifference carefully cultivated, or casual unbelief,
when your God, the God, has taken prodigious steps, contemplated with shut eyes
uninformed heart, or bypassing mind.
That you should know God, find
Christ, learn His word, the Bible,
and apply it, is our desire while the grand glory of God is magnified.

1) Repentance Reality. A sharp turn on the
rudder is required, a pointing in direction
that turns from life without Jesus Christ, to his ways with relish for Him and horror at one's errors.
See Luke 13:1-3.
2) Pardon Place. What is freely granted to the
faith to receive it from Jesus Christ
(Isaiah 55, Romans 6:23,Micah 7:19-20, Galatians 3:23) is abundant pardon.
3) The Grace Unit. It is unsurpassable grace,
a paid up ransom for sin, procured by the sacrificial Saviour,
in view of His offering of Himself in place of all
who receive His grant (Romans 8:32ff.)
4) The Resurrection of the body surgical ward.
Here not replacement hearts for the body
but a new heart is granted, in which a divine righteousness is implanted
(Romans 5:1-20, I Corinthians 15, Acts 13:29-41, John 3),
mediating adoption as a child of God (Ephesians1:1-11), and with this
5) Eternal Life (Romans 6:23, John 10:9,27-28),
all obstruction removed,
given by the love, mercy and grace of God from His very own life (I John 1).
In the 243
volume set entitled
IN PRAISE OF CHRIST JESUS,
there is ground to believe, receive and to praise Him, whose praise is justice, whose knowledge is necessary, whose actions bring eternal life, whose word is the truth and whose joy is an eternal spring, never polluted.
For each volume, look at LIBRARY in the margin. Overall, each type of philosophical problem has been resolved, and the necessary ingredients for such solution have been found in Biblical Christianity. In particular is this true of the predestination and freewill domain (covered in 7 volumes), where the biblical propositions and perspective are shown not merely to resolve the problem issues, but alone to have what it takes to do so. So the age-old problem bows to the Bible.

What this site attests: Don't fall
or falter, God has provided.
you are drawn to Him, or desire
to reason concerning Him, to
to find out the truth about life as God made it, read on.
There is a way where no
contradiction can stand,
no probing question lies unanswered, no fault ever stands exposed,
where the highway never fails and the narrowed path never falters,
where truth is inveterate and demonstrable:
for the God who gave us creation,
gave us reason, and beyond all this,
revelation, definitive and express,
to which reason unerringly points.
The tangles of all that leaves or
does not find this regal revelation
by contrast, and so ineradicable. Without light, there is only darkness.
This site demonstrates, exhibits and
attests these facts
in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, verifying, validating the complete singularity,
a monopoly mouthed by the Creator,
of what is found presented in the Bible, with its plan performed by the Redeemer
and attested by His Spirit at every dimension.
The word of truth is the Bible: that
does not fail, because God does not:
the One who as the truth became man
is the eternal Redeemer,
the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ.
History flows to Him who always was
and who came,
according to the prophets in the multitudes of predictions given them, none falsified,
from His predictive mouth.
It likewise conforms to His words when He came, as His instrument,
never varying from what He has said, and the Bible relays.
He speaks, and it follows, just as the universe did when He created it.
Challenges to it and to Him who gave it, never stand because truth cannot be falsified,
whether these be to His Person when He was in Israel, or to His word before His return,
though man tosses indifferently
word, weapon, slander or millions to the grave in delusive confusions,
and relentless wars of mayhem in place of the marvel of truth.
What is truth to the mind, clarity
to the spirit, is also fidelity from God to the heart
of that person who in truth finds life, and in life the way
which is Christ Jesus the Lord
who as Redeemer gave His life
to provide it,
so that He - having healed many, and resurrected others -
by infallible proofs, was Himself resurrected
precisely as and when He said,
to exhibit His authenticity and confirm all He did before He rose.
(See Deity and Design,
Designation and Destiny,
including this link.)
Where the Bible is presented, it is
always the aim to
that as the written word of God Almighty, it changes not at all
(Galatians 1, Jude, Isaiah 8, 57, Matthew 5:17-20),
neither in its perspective,
nor the atmosphere of presentation -
as with such acute force by Jude,
and penetrating love as in I John.
Nor is it different in its Gospel (Galatians 1),
which is the power of God to salvation (Romans 1:16),
nor again in its origin in God (I Corinthians 2:9-13, Matthew 4:4, Isaiah 8:20),
nor in its authority (Matthew 28:16-18, 5:17-20), which is that of God whose it is.
To present it, one must echo it in all respects, if one is to be faithful.
Accordingly, it has been our studied intention to provide no offence
but that of the Cross (Galatians 5:11, 6:14) and all that this implies,
and that none should stumble,
except at the word of God (I Peter 2:8), the Rock of Christ (I Peter 2:6-8) -
for whom we are ambassadors,
on whom we wait, and for whom we serve.

Here, then, is presented a theological set of some 243 volumes,
directed to and showing grounds for all that is
In Praise of Christ Jesus
It specialises in Biblical Christian Apologetics, covering issues
from canon to translation,
science and its erratic substitute,
to sober reality and its record.
It concentrates on exegesis of the word of God,
including careful attention to translation,
while placarding the immutable Gospel (Galatians 1),
and exalting Jesus Christ, as only Saviour, true Redeemer, God as man,
Lord of life and indispensable source of spiritual life for man.
The issues could not be greater so the labour has been sweet,
for its source is sweeter yet.
There is a truth and trueness about Jesus Christ,
whether in His record on earth,
the predictions to and from Him, the power of His Spirit,
the cleanness of His name
or the regality of His meekness, the finality of His truth or
the peace that He brings to the heart which knows Him.
The motivation of His personal love and what proceeds
from it is
consistent, persistent, insistent,
but never brash, gullible or manipulable.
Eternally alive from the dead, He is great to know and will return,
both suddenly and unexpectedly;
and the time is near (cf. Luke 21:24, I Thessalonians 1),
but how near, no-one but God knows.

religious mutants without faith.
The way of God has been formalised almost to formal extinction,
then degraded with informal excursions into experiential libido,
to liberties bearing little resemblance
to its living Victor over death, and Founder, Jesus Christ,
and to the Word which He both was and as Messiah, obeyed.
It has been
by pious hypocrites,
and followed by people
who have adorned it.
Besieged by belittlers,
infiltrated by the impure,
yet it is undaunted,
for God Himself is
faithful and loyal.
Grossly, in this century
it has been
contorted and assaulted,
that it is time we had
a Web concourse,
a meeting place where truth
is hallowed, logic has place,
competition with Christ
is shown in its withered weakness –
amid the confused clutter
of alien and irrational contentions:
a place where reality,
vital with its innate dignity and wonder, stands unharassed.

1) God Almighty is,
2) the Bible is His Written Word, and
3) Christ is His living and eternal Word.
fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
If therefore you do not know Him, you have not begun.
When you actually know God,
the rest follows
when the sun comes over the horizon.
Life is then not just demonstration to the mind,
but to the heart, the spirit and the life.
Almost unimaginable when you have not seen it,
it is quite unforgettable when you have! The Lord really is my light,
and should be yours. He made both of us.
want inter-related items to help you investigate
any Biblical/Christian issue, teaching, point, check,
theme, morals, Christian education,
creation and the method of science,
prophecy, history and the Bible, truth, meaning of life,
know that and why the
Bible is true, be assured God is alive,
that you are responsible to Him, and what to do about it;
to apply the word of God, be faithful to it,
or to test it, assure yourself - even confront in these fields ...
or simply to discuss them ? There is scope for such action here.
It is best to test: that is why challenge is here given to all who wish
to address reason in this field:
the result is the force of reality, the testimony of truth,
and without truth,
man is like one dead.
With it, the soul lives, the heart thrives
the spirit soars and man's companion is God.
God is always able to provide, and His is the victory.
Feel free to in sincerity to pursue any such issue for yourself on site,
or by referring the topic to us.
The word of God, wonderfully apt, is the verbal seal of the Creator.
It speaks for itself, and is a delight to discuss, a joy to mine and
a reward for the industrious.
It gives the touch of the shepherd, Jesus Christ,
whose life is as available now as it ever was,
and whose promises are always found to be sure.
If you are not walking in the light of His countenance, you are in darkness.
That HE is the light of the world is not just words; it is work. It is also grace.
Pain, suffering, evil ... ? We are not in the hands of a social service panacea, but of a staggeringly slighted and sundered God. Needed crucially is not man's mercy, but that of God.

are estimated to be approximately 60,000 pages,
contained in a closely integrated and heavily indexed set of
Biblical Christian Apologetics,
with available features in this 'home'
to which you are invited! It is available.
First, however, notice that the demonstration
the truth of the written word of God, the Bible,
and Jesus Christ, only Saviour,
is not at all through any special talent or power of the writer,
but dependent absolutely on the power and grace
of the resurrected and eternal word of God, Jesus Christ;
and that same Bible instructs Christians
to give a reason for the faith to the one who asks.
Nor has it been at my will, but wrought both with and at the will of God, whom I serve.
That it may be the largest single-author work,
on Apologetics extant in any religious field,
or in the field of theology as an integral set,
is entirely fitting, for good reason.
On the one hand, this is
the generation of unbelief,
whether through foolish following of groundless false prophets,
or secular fantasies, ignoring truth with passion,
and affirming it while denying it is there;
and on the other, the truth neither ends nor is limited,
but attests itself in every field, on all sides and in all fields,
and attests by many signals that the day of judgment draws near.
It thus becomes increasingly important to show that
in Jesus Christ is the answer
to all this world's chronic problems, in Him alone.
The TRUTH (John 14:6) is like that! Matters arise to be despatched,
questions come to be answered: for the word of God, the Bible IS truth,
and He who gave is THE TRUTH (John 14:6).
Praise God that many different features are presented by many,
and cogent proof is one of those here.
Since it is so, it ought to be done, and it is in this instance presented as a testimony: many miss out, so let's study the bull's eye.
This Jesus Christ, the central focus of the Bible,
is the last and the first, the final and the finale of all inheritance for man
which makes racial, cultural or other heritage a virtual zero by comparison.
Hence, in testimony, this work covers
many fields and disciplines, even translation and biblical exposition,
for if you do not know the object, how can you relate!
Thus, as a testimony in depth and detail,
it is designed to meet those
who hasten to their judgment,
that end which muddle does not dismiss,
and invites to the peace and presence of God anew
in the name of Jesus Christ,
those not yet by their ultimate unbelief consigned;
for the love of God towards man is vast and profound,
more boundless than ocean or space.
Yet He never spits out truth in order to save a soul: He does it WITH IT!
(John 14:6, Matthew 20:28).
With God, things can happen quickly, if there is need,
so here is an example.
As you see Him work in this or that field,
faith expands yet further.
On this site, through God's grace, facing the needs of the field,
and seeking to meet them, many steps have been taken by faith.
In the 40 months, till April 2004, there were around
50 new volumes completed
with 14 more by December 2004
and a further 40 by December 2006
some 104 volumes
in 6 years. It has continued to this year, 2016. Praise the Lord for His goodness and faithfulness, and may it bring blessing to many.
Altogether over 400 sermons amid 243 volumes of this set have appeared on the Web since 1996,
& this provides by the grace of God, much food for all.
This attests, that where there is need, the Lord knows how to act, and to enable His servants, and that there is nothing too hard for Him.
Praise God for that.
The scope of new works published
for several years in the recent past, having for some time
varied around one million words per annum,
there are oceans to sail on. These seas were not invented for nothing,
but through the grace of Jesus Christ, for you. Their bedrock is the Bible.
This gives fresh coverage for all, challenge and interest,
with latest items found at top of the Library
and News files.
Look and find not only the details,
but the deity directive of design,
the fabricator of imagination and the grantor
of the spirit of mankind
a race free enough to fly from truth as if by commission!
and to ruin this, its world in tantrums against obvious truth, while yet
remaining relevant to redemption in God, to the end (cf. Revelation 5; 22:17).
Here is scope not only to sail the seas on biblical bedrock,
but to find
spiritual things with spiritual wings,
seeking the unchanging truth
which is magnificently made available
by God Himself, for all, these millenia.
Reason is a servant to the process;
faith is the mode of access;
truth is the companion on the way;
revelation is the testable product of God, authorised and authenticated by God in the Bible,
and Jesus Christ is truth enshrined in human flesh, the eternal God as man,
who confirms all, did all for salvation and is available to all, as Saviour and Lord.
If then this be largest known single-author work
on Apologetics or theology,
with integral perspective and biblically constrained,
providing under one roof multiple test and presentation alike,
there is reason for that:
for what is easier to write about than
(Jesus Christ, God incarnate)
and who is more inspiring and gracious than
(from whom Christ sent His Holy Spirit).
And which generation is nearer to
judgment than this one!
(cf. Answers to Questions Ch. 5).
Thus we are regaled in revelation from the Lord -
*in the Bible, presented precise in proposition,
found faithful in performance,
*in Jesus Christ, definitive in Person as God:
the graphic word written,
and in Him,
the living word smitten
for our sin
for our deliverance.

As an educational site, specialising in
reason for faith
and the testimony which God has left for man,
this has visitors from surprising sources,
academic and national.
The content varies from academic treatises to recent news,
always directing to God, His written word, the Bible,
His definitive incarnation in Christ Jesus,
whose drawing never ceases
to move in the hearts and minds of man, His creation,
which attests His continuing love and mercy, power and patience.
For this, with many, we give Him praise,
as likewise for His mercy, love and pity
shown repeatedly over several millenia,
cardinally in Christ two millenia ago!
By this, He seeks continually among the children of men,
sending His servants to the ends of the earth.
It is important not to dither with deity,
but to close with Him on the Gospel,
and delight in Him! His return approaches, and grows near.
HOW near no one but

In brief, though
numbers vary, over the first 20 years on the Web,
till relatively recently, there seem to have been
up to 300,000 annual calls for chapters and cognate documents,
of what are now the 243 volumes on this site,
consistent in approach because written and integrated by one author;
while according to checking over a short period,
some 76 nations have been calling, and over 400 tertiary bodies.
For all this we praise God, for whom it is,
whose grace and power has enabled it,
and to whose glory it is set.
After all, it is to ALL NATIONS that HIS GOSPEL is sent!

to find the Bible to be the word of God Almighty.
These things YOU
need to KNOW!
Follow on to find out how.
It is not only
reason however which shows His word.
Life, in turn, finding Him, can only attest, verify,
wonder and glorify the God of truth, while
fellowship with Him is man's personal link to what is divine.
Here, experience follows as in any meeting, what its foundations show.
revelation shows what;
faith tastes and knows.
To ignore what the
Father of light
has said in His Son Jesus Christ
is far more obstructive than insensitivity.
It is the act of the rebel,
the irrationalist and the doomed.
Find that hard to digest ?
Taste and see! Search and find!
Failing to meet reality is the cause for many an accident,
and it is of no value to denounce accident, when eyes are shut to the road.
To receive that
same Jesus Christ is to find a work of grace
surpassing all the glories of creation,
and the path of eternal life.
To know your Creator is to be set on basic bedrock;
to omit it to worse than starvation.
This is what God
shows in His word, more solid than rock.
In fact it regularly breaks rock; it is equally ready to heal broken hearts,
for it is backed by Him who made the heart before it fell.
Great in energy, it heals, hinders, strikes as most fitting,
and since love directs it,
and truth shines throughout it, healing and restoration are most prominent.
To attest this,

and the integrity of His love, there follow:

INITIAL QUERIES FOR YOU TO PONDER
Are you stuck in cultural clogs, exposed to wild weathers ?
|For you, then,
perhaps the truth is not turning up
as you might hope or need,
in this and that
area or arena, as you live and ponder;
|perhaps like a
car with an engine which will not start,
you mimic motion and find commotion.
transport, in that state, it has only the form of a car.
That is the type of thing common now
as foretold in II Timothy 3 for these times.
Yet you must penetrate past appearances, to the reality:
that is freely available in Jesus the Christ, the Eternal incarnate.
We cannot over-emphasise this,
that we are looking to the living God,
who can do all things,
has raised His Son bodily from the dead,
having foretold just that for a millenium before doing it
precisely as and when predicted
(cf. Highway of Holiness Ch. 4, SMR Ch. 9),
and moves history like a fountain pen:
indeed, HE HAS written, and it DOES come to pass
JUST as He has said.
In all, He is OUR
resource and recourse, entirely by His grace,
and we look for others to find Him.
With grace like His, it is tragedy if you do not.
Life is not a game but a pilgrimage,
and you need not only the way but the result that God gives.
As to the truth, it
has been around from the first;
and is equipped with power to the last.
God has never left Himself without a witness.
Love provides it; mercy secures it;
folly ignores it; the gospel is the divinely given key that enables it to be discovered.
As to life apt for mankind, this has found it.
The gospel is its cutting edge that bares and meets reality.
It is God's own channel to salvation, deliverance from death,
with a just peace in truth.
Christ is the way,
the life and the TRUTH.
There is simply no other name under heaven
given to mankind by which any one may be saved (Acts 4:11-12): and that ?
forgiven by God, re-rendered, restored, relieved,
redeemed, revitalised and when the time comes, resurrected.
It is in HIS name that we act, from Him truth is derived,
and it is His word that stands.
IF you do not have the truth, then what do you have ?
a reliable liability to error!
Direction does not come from a mound of hope, but from God.
Without sure foundations, a person is a spiritual foundling.
(Why not take this hyperlink
Imaging and not finding,
imagining and not discovering,
straying, praying without knowledge,
many are hoping without understanding, and in fact -
while others too forlorn to pray, too proud or too prejudiced -
equally lack life as it was made by God:
lack actively ? acting like a volunteer death squad,
themselves the target;
lack passively ? living out a relic of life,
like a vine branch, cut off, on the ground.
Sin strips off the
necessary completeness of created life,
an appointed place in God,
hope for the future, eternal life; and salvation restores it.
It puts you back according to specifications, but is better in this,
that once redeemed,
you BELONG TO the eternal GOD, His for ever (John 10-:9,27-28).
The only real loss is sin. If you want that, you are welcome:
but it IS like wanting cancer.
IF on the other
hand, you do KNOW THE LORD,
and you DO have life ( I John 5:12):
SHOW it and GROW in it.
A birthday is not a life: but its introduction!
Being born again is starting. It is important to be born; it is crucial to grow up,
spiritually just as physically.
Thus there is growing up - in Christ!
and finding that great treasure of His written word,
coming alive in your understanding and life.
Seekers, come and
find Christ and in Him,
all the riches of wisdom and knowledge,
elemental and final truth and the love of God.

This body is:
on and logically demonstrating and presenting
the truth of the Bible,
validated and verified without logical competition,
presented in a testable word from the God who demands truth.

against establishment of a religion in this land;
mask or manipulate the scripture, and affront God.
It is accordingly against the noxious practice
in this State of S.A. for example, of defiling it
by universalising a practical disclaimer against all religion.
While its own system is in rational ruins,
it continues ludicrous attack on the place of the verifiable,
and this, not only gratuitously, but with no grounds of contest.

It is therefore important that such harassments
as were met by Jesus Christ
through political systems in His time on earth,
and have occurred in many countries since,
and which constitute a widespread failing in the human race,
should not occur in this land, or on the Internet in particular.
When they come, this Australian nation is already on the way out.
It has had a brave beginning, and its sources
have in many things been fine.
The end always, however, must be kept in view.
The great point even then is this,
that the Beginning does not End, since He is God,
and His people are kept past
the ‘end’ of this world’s vain show,
with Him who though now invisible,
is He who alone makes man viable for ever.
Truth must be freely sought, so that
it may be delightedly found.

What is Logical, Empirical,
possesses the works, all of them ?
It is there, awaiting you.
Let us take one illustration.
God's word stands.
Science changes (often in a very few years, very much) .
God’s word does not:
it never changes,
over the millennia, being not merely immutable,
but suitable, cogent, unbending, unamending,
and indeed even forecasting
what is to be in the dealing of God, in the world of man,
in the development of destiny.
wholly unique standing of the word of God is empirical,
though faith believes it,
before action shows it and God sends it before man sees it.
This then is the author's experience
and simple observation, over more than 50 years of knowing Christ,
in whatever setting,
amid the blatant blarings of many, of falling churches (cf. Revelation 2-3),
not least, in this country and that, in this office and that,
under this test and that one.
Not one word of His has
His reliability makes that of the sun seem short-term by comparison. It flickers;
He does not (James 1)
The truth stands, and error falls because it CANNOT stand.
It fails like a paper aeroplane in a downdraught.
That is empirical experience as well as assured principle,
in the word of God. Much falls, but the church of Jesus Christ continues.
And that ? it stands ON Him, IN His word (John 14:21ff., I Cor. 3:11).
Substitutes slither; fakes wither;
but the Gospel preaching, word teaching,
faith activated church of God
continues on its costly way, precious to Him and created for Him,
looking to Him who is invisible, finding Him closer and better
than the visible, His creation.
The task of the Church is never itself, but
Him who sent it,
and its work is never its own word, but His who sends it
(John 12:48-50, 14:26, 15:7, 17:8, Revelation 22:18-19,
Galatians 1, Matthew 23:8-10, II Peter 2:1ff.)
and what honours Him, not itself, is honoured.
We can never consent in conscience to the use of psychic, emotional, political, social or other means of repressing Christianity, or to government becoming its secular Lord. We do not concur in the de facto confusing of the issue that our Constitution in Australia FORBIDS the Commonwealth both from establishing a religion, imposing religious observance and from prohibiting the free exercise of any religion. Hence convenience, pleasure and preference in the field of religion cannot annul its proper liberty, not of course so as to annul all scope for other religions or kill, but to exercise its principles of morality beyond prejudice, prohibition or mere invasive social desire.
Thus, for example, to make personal feelings, without due review of purpose and principles, truth and case, such as exhibited in a sense of insult and offence to be a criterion of morals, right and wrong, of some taking contrary legal action or not, constitutes competitive religion, violates principled morality and displaces truth, leaving justice a psychic remnant.
Hypocrisy does not help unconstitutionality, and a cover of words does not remove in this case, a relegation of truth, justice and religion to things inessential, manipulable, and supervened by emotions.
invasive laws in this field are not merely a violation of the Commonwealth's
limitations, but an assault on the very integrity and sustainability of
religion, an action from a State becoming at war with Church, a rupture
reminiscent of the liberty of religion which giants of deception have granted in
while persecuting to the uttermost.
Section 116 of the Constitution declares that "the commonwealth shall not make any law for establishing any religion, or for imposing any religious observance, or for prohibiting the free exercise of any religion, and no religious test shall be required as a qualification for any office or public trust under the Commonwealth."
Whatever, however, the persecution may be, and it is foretold in some detail as to come (cf. John 16:2, Revelation 13,17), the categories and way of the Christian following Jesus Christ do not alter. Their quality is immutable, as is God (Psalm 102).
We are pilgrims, but
the light does not vary
(I Chronicles 29:11-15, James 1:17, I Peter 2:9-11, Psalm 100:5).
The beautiful thing is this, that His truth endures to all generations.
It is easier to cut a diamond with a knife,
than alter His truth in any generation,
given from the first to the last. Its light is lustrous (Isaiah 8:20, Jeremiah 23:21-29).
Praise God, it is very bright.
The word of God is
tested in all ages,
the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ is confirmed at all times.
Available to faith,
Jesus Christ is our central focus: and the importance HE has attached
to you and to me is measured by His own actions in entering the world (John 17:5),
and being crucified after a life of perfect righteousness,
to provide the way home (I Peter 2:22-25, 3:18).
There is simply no
excuse for being lost. There is also no need ...
There is also no need ...
To speak personally, I
should find such a thing intolerable to contemplate,
in the face of such favour and mercy; and for that also,
I thank God whose mercy is from everlasting to everlasting
and who is able to keep that which is committed to Him
against that day when judgment is final (cf. II Timothy 1:12).
That, to one who knows and loves God, it is not too long!
Fancy His bothering
with us: but He does!
Fancy such kindness to the human race (Titus 2-3), to mankind,
but it is there, where it may be found (Isaiah 55).
Fancy such kindness to the human race (Titus 2-3), to mankind,
Through Christ is
the key for heaven and the remedy for earth.
There is not another door, another gateway (John 14:6, Acts 4:11-12).
God is One; the remedy is One, the result of the neglect is one,
and that of moving through Him to His Father, is one.
WHICH ONE IS FOR YOU!
