Things Beyond My Control I Am Praying For This Year | Dr. John's Blog | Back to the Bible Canada

You might wonder about the title of my blog.  In truth, all things are beyond my control.  Even though my choices are real and do lead to consequences that I can control to some extent, I am always reminded of the greater truth.  Proverbs 16:9 says, “The heart of man plans his way, but the…

My Prayer for 2021 by Dr. John Neufeld | Back to the Bible Canada

It’s no overstatement to say that 2020 has been a difficult year.  Of course, the major story has been the global pandemic.  But there have been other stories as well.  The protests and the riots in the US seemed to tear at the fabric of our neighbours.  The US presidential election saw Donald Trump lose…

All of us who have celebrated Christmas in Church, are familiar with Isaiah 9:6. “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Almost all of us, when…

Recapturing the Gospel | Back to the Bible Canada with Dr. John Neufeld

By anyone’s reckoning, 2020 has been an unusual year.  Of course, no one will be able to talk about 2020, without speaking about COVID-19.  But let’s not forget the “Black Lives Matter” protests, especially in the United States.  Let’s also remember that racial sensitivities caused several Sports Franchises to change their names.  The Washington Redskins…

At the time of writing this article, it seems fairly certain that Canadians will not be permitted to gather during this year’s Christmas celebrations.  Moreover, large family gatherings will also be cancelled.  We are, right now, at the most significant spike of the disease.  Even though a vaccine seems maddingly close, it is not close…

Jesus is Praying for You | Back to the Bible Canada

It’s Time to Expose the False Prophets of Our Day

I have been noticing a very worrying trend now, for many years.  Here is one example of what I am talking about.  Back in July of 2018, “Christianity Today” reported that about a third of Protestant churchgoers say their congregation teaches that God will bless them if they donate money.  Two-thirds say God wants them…

The Case for Bibliocentric Living and Believing

I remember well the week of my graduation from Seminary.  I was in the bookstore, overhearing a conversation from two of my classmates.  One of them said something like this: “When I first arrived here, I had a great deal of certainty.  But during the course of my studies, and the introduction to critical studies,…

Angry With God? - Dr. John Neufeld | Back to the Bible Canada

I was recently listening to a video featuring the late R.C. Sproul.  A listener had written in regarding his grief over his unsaved adult son who had recently died.  The listener wanted to know how to deal with his anger towards God. Sproul responded, “Repent”.  He said, “Repent in dust and ashes.  There has never…

Insisting on Sexual Holiness

Recently, a well known, and recently deceased Christian leader was being accused of sexual sin.  I hasten to add, that there is an ongoing investigation.  I for my part, will form no opinion until a thorough investigation has been done.  Furthermore, I am determined not to discuss this matter with others.  Discussing matters before we…
