I’m a born and raised small town, picket fence, barefoot in the summer kind of guy. My hometown was so small that the last one to go to bed turned out the streetlight. We had no locks on our doors. After all, what if a neighbour needed something while we were gone? If my mom…

I have often wondered whether Christians truly understand Jesus’ teaching on forgiveness. So many believers struggle to respond to those who have wounded them. The man or woman whose spouse has committed adultery with a friend. The business partner or investment counsellor who has cheated him or her of all of their retirement savings, and…

The Theology of Hypocrisy - Dr. John's Blog | Back to the Bible Canada

We all know of prominent Christians who have carried on in sin, and then have finally been exposed.  The names are too numerous to mention.  But hypocrisy doesn’t end with the powerful and famous.  We also know of everyday Christians who routinely carry on in hypocrisy.  Perhaps it is the Christian businessperson with unethical or…

Once upon a "Sick Kid" | Laugh Again

I’m writing this in the midst of COVID when a child needs little reason to stay home. In the olden day’s parents had to call or send the teachers excuse notices. Here are some of my favourites. I’m not making them up: Dear Teacher, my son is under doctor’s care. Please execute him. Chris will…
