Ravi Zacharias was a Liar, Sexual Pervert and Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing. This Report Proves it
An investigation into the once respected evangelist Ravi Zacharias has revealed far more disturbing behaviour than many had anticipated.
The evidence is clear. Ravi Zacharias was a liar, a sexual pervert, and an abusive, deceitful manipulative, greedy hypocrite. This goes way beyond one incident, one fall. It reveals a lifestyle and pattern over many years. He fooled many people, shamed his family and brought disgrace upon the Church. He was someone of whom the... Continue Reading
Meet the World’s Fastest-Growing Evangelical Movement
According to Operation World, Iran has the fastest-growing evangelical movement in the world.

PCA Minister Ronald Harold Parrish, 69, Called Home to Glory
Ronald H. Parrish lived his life fully and faithfully for God’s glory.
Ron’s gifts on earth were not the kind that dazzled the world and caused others to stand in awe. He did not pass from this world with the reputation as a great preacher or a profound scholar, but he had great measures of grace and humility. Someone has summed up well what I would say...

Keep Moving Forward
" Now is not the time to give up or despair. Now is the precise time for which we have been training our mind and character. " - Carl Trueman
Continue. Keep moving forward. Keep doing the job you’ve been called to do, speaking the truth in love and righteousness for the good of your neighbor, to the glory of God.

Who Was Idelette Calvin?
When Calvin finally married Idelette van Buren, he found the one thing needful for which he was looking: a sincere and obedient heart of piety toward God.
True joy in marriage results when a husband strives to love his wife the way Christ loves the church and when the wife strives to respect her husband the way the church respects Jesus Christ. John and Idelette Calvin knew that joy. One of the most amazing things about their relationship is that they exuded... Continue Reading
The Simple Gospel of Carl Henry
Henry was not Graham, nor did God intend for him to be.
First, Henry was not Graham, nor did God intend for him to be. The Neo-Evangelical movement was strengthened by the diversity of gifts. It was not that Henry thought the calling to be a preacher was wholly distinct from the calling to be a theologian. Both tasks require a resolute reliance upon the power of... Continue Reading

Most subjects of memorial pieces in The Aquila Report had... Continue Reading
“More Pilgrims Are Come To Town!”: Learning to Grieve with Hope
I counsel you, go to the grave with songs of gladness.
“And what do you think the other saints up there thought of our brethren’s death? Why, doubtless, they welcomed them with gladsome acclamations; and all through the golden streets they ran, and cried, “More pilgrims are come to town! More pilgrims are come to town! More redeemed ones have come home!” And the Lord Jesus... Continue Reading
William Perkins and the Priority of Scripture
William Perkins interpreted Scripture with Scripture by using three tools: context, collation, and the analogy of faith.
Only the word of God and its faithful exposition—that is, exposition in line with the hermeneutical principles stated in The Arte of Prophecying—could accomplish the monumental tasks before sixteenth-century Puritans. Perkins in particular strove to transform an ignorant and immoral people, exhorting them to live up to the Reformation principles England had officially adopted. So, in... Continue Reading
