Cyberthreats are everywhere, especially when you venture out of your home. You could be mugged walking down the street, but then again chances are that you will not be, especially if you are careful. But could you be cyber-mugged?
What if you were walking down the street, using public transport, or out shopping, and someone could steal money from you without even touching you or physically taking your wallet?
What if every time you got your new credit card out to pay for something, someone added an extra charge to your card for something you never bought?

I have just published a new book at Smashwords, A Prisoner of Christ.
What does it mean to be a prisoner of Jesus Christ? Have you resigned from this world or are you still very much a part of it? How are we a prisoner of the flesh? Do we recognise what holds us back in life and can stop us from moving forward? We struggle in this life but look forward to the Kingdom of God when we shall be perfect.

On 14th February most of the Western world will be observing a custom called Saint Valentine’s Day. They celebrate it every year with flowers, romantic dinners, lovehearts, loving others and other romantic events.
But what are the origins of this day and its customs? Is this something that Christians should celebrate or should Christians avoid this holiday?
If we, as Christians, are supposed to love other people, should we not get into celebrating Saint Valentine’s Day? Or is love something other than what people think it is on Valentine’s Day?

So as we come to a new Day of Atonement this year, we can think about what we do and what it means. It is a day to fast, as stated in Leviticus 23:26–32. The New Century Version translates verse 27 this way: “The Day of Cleansing will be on the tenth day of the seventh month. There will be a holy meeting, and you will deny yourselves and bring an offering made by fire to the Lord.”
In Acts 27:9 we read about the Fast being kept by the early Church: “Now when much time had been spent, and sailing was now dangerous because the Fast was already over, Paul advised them” (NKJV).
So if you choose to keep this Holy Day and follow the command to fast, i.e. to go without food and water for the whole day, from sunset to sunset, what can we learn from that? And is fasting good for us?

So today the people of Scotland (at least those given the right to vote) get to decide if they stay a part of the United Kingdom or leave and have their independence.
But what would be the best course of action? Should Scotland stay in the Union started in 1707 or should they divorce themselves from England (and Wales and Northern Ireland) and go it alone?
Let us consider some points. England and Scotland united together as one kingdom in the 18th Century, and since then they have achieved much.

Massive 3,800-Year-Old Fortress Uncovered in City of David -- The excavation of the Spring House fortress, conquered by King David, and where King Solomon was crowned, took 15 years. The biggest fortress ever uncovered in Israel from the pre-Herod period was inaugurated in March 2014 in a secret ceremony. The fortress, that was built some 3,800 years ago, was uncovered during a 15-year archeological dig in the City of David, one of the most complex and unique digs ever done in Israel.

Today, 4 August 2014, is a few days after 28 July, 100 years since the start of the First World War, also known, at the time, as the Great War, and as the second Thirty Years War.
So who started it and why?
