Christianity and Islam are two of the world's most influential belief systems. Some prefer to call them Abrahamic religions, stressing their similarities. Yet, to truly understand them, we need to appreciate the differences.

Both religions are very diverse, so how can we compare them adequately? To do that, we need to go back to the sources, and to their founders, to Jesus and Mohammed.

Yes, some things are forever.

What would you die for? What are you living for?

Our answers to these questions lie at the heart of our motivations, and shape our lives at work, home, and play. Ian Powell considers the wisdom and insight that the Biblical writer Daniel sheds on these questions.

Eros, intimacy and the mind of God

What does our sexuality tell us about God?

"As a dohttps://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ON2lj2gds6HcA3-F9qwXlExGbND0tDurY5TjyZg-_0Q/edit#gid=1776344133ctor and a sexologist I am captivated by the exquisite complementarity of male and female reproductive systems and the hard wiring in the brain that draws the two together in desire, love and bonding"

Is sin good for you?

Sydney

The answer, of course, is "yes" and "no"

Is sin good for you? An article in Saturday’s Sydney Morning Herald suggests it can be [1]. Quoting from a recent book by experimental psychologist Simon Laham [2], the article suggests that rather than being “deadly sins”, Lust, Sloth etc might actually be good for you. No doubt we’ll hear more when Laham appears on the ABC’s Q&A program on Monday October 1 [3].

As a Christian, I guess you’d expect me to disagree with Laham. However, I think there is room for heavily qualified agreement.
