Andrew Sandlin joins us for a podcast interview on the full scope of the gospel. He explains the original context of the word in connection with imperial Greece and Rome, and we talk about some of the reasons Christians have abandoned the task of applying the gospel in public life. Andrew's article that inspired this conversation can be found here.

Protestants around the world have been observing, celebrating and reflecting on five hundred years of the Reformation, in the lead up to the anniversary of Martin Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the chapel door of Wittenberg Castle on October 31, 1517.
The Reformation was a developing movement that strove to be faithful to the constant touchpoint of Scripture, in our own time we should be mindful of the constant need to submit our doctrines, beliefs, and experiences to the inspired, authoritative Word of God, and to interpret all of life and history in light of that Word.

A godly, rightly-ordered sense of patriotism is one mark of rightly-ordered affections. As Canadians celebrate our sesquicentennial, let us do so in a spirit of full and everlasting joy, knowing that Canada, like all nations and kingdoms, is under the righteous rule of King Jesus.
Canadian Christians cannot accommodate the government's new speech codes recently made law; we must confront these man-made delusions with the truth and beauty of Jesus and humble ourselves under His righteous rule.
