Christ the Law-Giver & Law-Keeper

September 7, 2017  |  Joe Boot

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.

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

June 12, 2017  |  Joe Boot

Since the beginning, man was called to cultivate God's creation into a godly civilization, this involved work, and only work done in obedience to God can bring blessing, while work done in rebellion reaps futility and frustration.
