The Art of What is Possible
Wisdom and Government
What does God's word have to say about our livelihoods, families, neighborhoods and nations? What place does Scripture have in the public sphere, and how does it relate to the government of nations?
The Truth Decay of Public Sex Education
At the heart of Ontario’s radical new sex-ed curriculum is the false belief in human autonomy and the perverse claim that children raise themselves. We may deny the reality of sin, but without Christ, can never truly free ourselves from the sense of guilt that accompanies it.
The Gospel and Education
The foundation of true education is the truth that man, though fallen and sinful, is made in the image of God the creator and king. Education is a core implication of the gospel truth that Jesus Christ is Lord over all the earth.
Wealth Inequality and a Clash of Theologies
Dr. Brian Mattson critiques the Marxist economic theories of Thomas Piketty, and demonstrates that the human problem is not wealth inequality, but sin.
Jubilee and Atonement
Joe Boot exposes and critiques Brian Walsh's false view of Jubilee and the doctrine of the Atonement. Rather than radical equality, true liberty is the truth that God in Christ has forgiven our insurmountable debt to sin.
Sexuality, Culture and the Church
Pornography has pervaded our culture and is re-wiring the brains of its many consumers. The church needs to be on guard and teach repentance to overcome the power of addiction to pornography.
Pesky Verses or the Power of God: Romans One under Attack
In our contemporary culture, we are faced daily with the radical redefinition of something so intrinsic to us as human beings: our sexuality. This coincides with a rise in paganism, which is not coincidental.
Hindrances to Christian Culture
There are several key impediments to the creation of Christian culture in the church and our world.
The Name Above All Names
If our lives, ministries, and work are to have an impact in our day, they must manifest the power of the resurrection, which is only present when faithfulness to his total-word and confidence in his lordship and Spirit characterizes our lives.
The Great Commission – The Biblical Mandate to Educate (1/2)
The Great Commission given by our Lord is a mandate to educate: "teach them to obey all things I have commanded you." Jesus also emphasized the awesome responsibility of those who teach, warning of the judgment upon those who mislead little ones (Matthew 18:6).
The Great Commission – The Biblical Mandate to Educate (2/2)
Education concerns the future. To whom does the future or history belong? To God for his purposes or to man for the fulfillment of his sinful desires? Nothing then is more important for the church to grasp today than the centrality and importance of a Christ-centred education.
