Always Reforming

September 19, 2017  |  Ryan Eras

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.

The Structure & Direction of Pluralism

July 17, 2017  |  Joe Boot

Christianity advocates a structural pluralism which maintains the creational distinctions between spheres of life, but it does not advocate a directional pluralism; in fact, what it presupposes is a clear directional principle toward honoring the Lordship of Christ and God's sovereignty over creation.

July 10, 2017  |  Joe Boot

For most of Western history, the law of God has occupied a critical and central place in the life of the family, church, and society. It has been recognized by many as God's charter for sanctification, justice, liberty and life.

Bill C-16, Bill 89 and the Illusion of Reality

June 23, 2017  |  Joe Boot, Ryan Eras, and Steven Martins

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.
