The New Morality

Today, our society is at war. The battlefront is not in Iraq—it is right here in North America. Under attack is our ability to distinguish between right and wrong. Under the cloak of freedom and tolerance we have abandoned a morality grounded in Judeo-Christian ethics replacing it with the concept of moral relativism. Moral relativism […]

“Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them” Jonah 3:4-5. The immediate future does not look hopeful for all nations, especially for Canada, America, and Britain. It is quite […]

A New Conception in Christ

For years I had dined at the table of deceit Fulfilling my own desires and lusts. Habitual sin once a daily routine As I fellowshipped with the unjust. Readily I followed the multitude of despair, The blind leading the blind into the ditch. Laying my treasures on things of this world; Plotting schemes of how […]

The Days of Unleavened Bread

When God brought the Israelites out of Egypt, His intent was to make them a model nation. He wanted them to be a light to the world, so He gave them specific statutes and judgments, and warned Israel to follow His instructions.

The Road Not Taken

Scared…big…beautiful…best describe my memory of church when I was about 5 years old. I have some good memories of the years we attended, although they come in bits and pieces. One day, I can recall being scared standing in front of this huge structure. As we were about to enter through the large, blonde, wooden […]

 “The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few” (Matthew 9:37, RSV). “They are to do good, to be rich in good deeds, liberal and generous, thus laying up for themselves a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life which is life indeed” (1 Timothy 6:18-19, RSV). How […]

Repent or Perish

Life is merely a ritual, albeit a challenging one. We’re born, live out our appointed time, and die; and after a while, “…the memory of them is forgotten” (Ecclesiastes 9:5). Life is like “vapour,” says the book of James, “that appears for a little time, and then vanishes away” (James 4:14). If life is so […]
