The Spiritual State of Canada

By Dr. John Neufeld | May 24, 2015

In the book of Ezekiel, chapter 37 talks about the “dry bones.” Led by the Holy Spirit to a valley full of human bones, the prophet asks, “Son of man, can these bones live?” Of course, this vision represents the house of Israel, as the northern kingdom has been taken into captivity, and the Babylonian…

What is the Purpose of Such An Earthquake? Answering the ‘Why’ of Nepal

By Dr. John Neufeld | May 17, 2015

The death toll in the latest earthquake in Nepal has now reached over 100, and a recent strong aftershock of over 7 on the Richter scale has only worsened the crisis.

Honour Your Mother? Recapturing Mother’s Day

By Dr. John Neufeld | May 9, 2015

As I understand the history of Mother’s Day, it was first proposed by Anna Marie Jarvis, a woman from West Virginia. Jarvis was a Christian woman who, during her Sunday school lessons as a little girl, found inspiration for just such a day. As Anna grew up, she continued to nurtured the idea of creating…

The Test of Genuine Faith

By Dr. John Neufeld | April 5, 2015

I want to bring the matter of what it takes to be saved to a conclusion. How do we know if we have genuinely been saved? Is repentance necessary? Must we turn from our sins in order to believe? I have stated that we must. Indeed, this is what the New Testament indicates. And yet,…

Is Your Confession of Faith More Than Just Words?

By Dr. John Neufeld | March 22, 2015

The questions concerning the Lordship of Christ, and whether surrender of our lifestyle in submission to Christ is necessary in order to be saved, is inexorably tied with how we understand words like “repentance,” “faith,” “works righteousness,” “lawlessness” and a host of other biblical terms.
