Brian Robertson

Brian was born in New Zealand in 1959, moved to Australia when he was five, and has lived in Queensland ever since. He was raised in a family in which politics was a major focus and the writings of Karl Marx were part of conversations. As a young man, Brian was an atheist, committed to the politics of the Left, and preparing to join the political fray after university.

During high school however, Brian opened a Bible for the first time in his life and encountered the Person of Jesus Christ. He soon began to study for pastoral ministry. He married Caroline in 1981, and has for almost four decades been involved in pastoral work and church planting in Baptist Churches in Queensland.

Brian has a passion for Christian schooling and was instrumental in the establishment of a Christian College in the community in which he lives. He is also President of the Bundaberg Branch of Cherish Life Queensland.

    In the modern world, we all know that science beats religion. Science is supposedly about reality, reason, and sensible progress. Religion is supposedly about unprovable beliefs, irrationality, and ‘stuck-in-the-past’ traditions. When there’s a dispute between the two, we are all modern intelligent people. Religion is [...]

    Since the 1980s, there’s been an increasingly common slogan. The phrase is synonymous with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander land rights, self-determination, and sovereignty. “Always Was, Always Will Be” has become an expression of grievance and unhappiness. But does the concept fit within a Biblical [...]

    Australia Day, meant to be a joyous celebration of all that makes our nation a wonderful country to live in, has been turned into a flashpoint for annual demonstrations of resentment. For some people, this is not a happy week. I know someone who is [...]

    Charles Darwin's theory of evolution tapped into the eugenic mindset of his age. Now, we are seeing the pendulum swing to the opposite extreme in a misguided, unfair attempt to atone for the terrible errors of the past. This will neither solve the issues nor [...]

    Once a society legalises euthanasia, it is impossible to ensure that every act of euthanasia is, in fact, at the voluntary request of the ill or aged person.   This is evident from research into the practice of euthanasia in Holland. John Keown, a [...]

    Do a huge majority of Australians really support euthanasia, as is often claimed? Most people do not understand what is meant by euthanasia. It would seem that most people are opposed to the unnecessary prolonging of life and think that a patient – or his/her [...]

    My doctor is killing me! Well, maybe not. In a society that values life, doctors are trained to “do no harm”. Unless a doctor is a psychopath or incompetent, or practising beyond his capabilities, I can be confident that my doctor has my best interests [...]
