Suffering – Remember these 3 Things!

Just a few days ago, my wife and I received an email from a dear sister in Christ.  A tragedy had befallen her family, and she was asking for prayers.  But in the process of asking for prayer, she described her confidence and faith in the kind providence of God.  I was brought to tears.…

The Gospel and Sin

It was back in the early 1970’s, that the then famous Psychiatrist, Karl Menninger wrote a remarkable book.  It was entitled, “Whatever Became of Sin”.  In many ways, what Dr. Menninger spoke about then, seems as if it could have been written yesterday. Menninger stated that our society has shifted sin from the individual to…

Evangelism and Living at Peace with All People

I recently saw an article in “Christianity Today” entitled, “Christians and Muslim Leaders Agree on Legitimacy of Evangelism.”  I was intrigued.  The article began with the statement, “The world’s largest Muslim organization accepts that Christians will try to convert its members.  A new partnership with evangelicals seeks to ensure this does not lead to conflict.”…

Enemies

Jesus taught us to love our enemies. But sometimes, the Psalms seem to teach the opposite. What are we to make of this? Psalms 1-41 is called Book One in the Psalms. All but 3 of these 41 Psalms are said to be authored by David. Most likely, it was David himself who not only…

The Christian and Sexual Attitudes

I recently read an article from the Pew Research Center.  If you don’t know, the Pew Research Center advertises itself as a “nonpartisan fact tank that informs the public about the issues, attitudes, and trends shaping the world.”  They go on to say, “We conduct polling, demographic research, content analysis, and other data-driven social science…

Return to a Truth Centered Faith

The word is “catechism”. You may have heard of the Westminster Catechism or the Heidelberg Catechism. You might also be aware that the reformers placed a great deal of emphasis on catechizing both adults and children. However, most modern evangelicals have never learned a catechism, and many are unfamiliar with the term. Why is that…

Break Down the Dividing Wall

I am almost finished reading a book on Critical Race Theory. I thought that since so many are talking about it and that I know so little about it, it was time for me to get educated. And so, I have been plowing my way through definitions as well as angry accusations. Do people whose…

Daniel and the Southern Baptist Convention

For most Canadians, the Southern Baptist Convention is off of our radar.  It is because it is an American denomination with very few churches in Canada.  But the Southern Baptist Convention is the largest Protestant Denomination in North America and accounts for some 21% of evangelical protestants in the U.S.  Since I try to pay…

Residential Schools and the Christian Faith

News of the recent discovery of 215 graves at the Kamloops Indian Residential School has shocked the nation.  The residential school system forcibly took Indigenous children from their parents and placed them into schools designed to assimilate them into the dominant “white” culture.  The abuse of the children was overlooked.  Children were routinely neglected and…

Get Back to Church

We are hearing good news. At the time of this writing, I am told that close to 55% of Canadians have received their first vaccine. The target for the Canadian government has been that 75% of Canadians should have received their first vaccine and 20% their second vaccine when opening back up to life as…
