Expect the Unexpected

December 1, 2013  |  David Robinson

Isaiah 64:1-9 is a plea for God to rend the heavens and come down to do awesome things we did not look for. It is also a confession of sin.

The Gospel is God's answer to Isaiah's plea. In Christ, God has opened the heavens and come down and done awesome things we did not look for. Christ cleanses us from our sin, clothes us in his righteousness, and gives us eternal life.

Darwin and the Darwinian Worldview

May 9, 2013  |  Joe Boot
In order to address the huge shift in our social order we need to examine the evolutionary worldview since most disciplines today, including that of Law, have become permeated with it.
Charity, Welfare, & Social Justice

Charity, Welfare, & Social Justice

May 9, 2013  |  Joe Boot
Dr. Boot discusses social justice as it relates to the question of living a just, or righteous life, and the bearing which that has on our thinking about the public and political sphere.
Christ and Culture

Christ and Culture

May 8, 2013  |  Joe Boot
Dr. Boot discusses what it means to live in terms of the lordship of Christ, that Jesus is Lord over all, and what the relationship is between Christians and their culture.
Education and the Battle for the Mind

Education and the Battle for the Mind

May 8, 2013  |  Scott Masson
One of the key issues of our time is the notion that all values, including moral ones, are subjective and merely personal. Our education system now promotes behaviours which, in the past, were associated with being uneducated.

Perfect Permanent Priesthood

May 4, 2013  |  Scott Masson

We live in a culture of self-righteousness and so we recoil at any hint that we need to be righteous. Political correctness itself is a kind of self-righteousness, smugly condemning those who believe in moral absolutes.

Tithing - A Priestly Service

April 28, 2013  |  Joe Boot

God's plan for mission, worship, scholarship, health care, education, arts, justice, etc., depends on tithing. Those who proclaim the gospel should get their living by the gospel. We do not just rob God, we rob ourselves when we fail to tithe. God promises blessing as we honour His ownership over everything He has entrusted to us (Malachi 3).

Accreditation

April 20, 2013  |  Joe Boot
Though Jesus is not of the line of Levi, He is entitled to the office of high priest after the order of Melchizedek. Abraham's payment of a tithe shows that Melchizedek was greater than he. Like Abraham, we are obligated to tithe to our priest-king Jesus. People often crave the accreditation of men idolatrously. All institutions are to be established under the authority of God. So in every area of activity, we are to seek the approval of God, and not men.

The faithlessness of the church has brought about a curse upon our nation. But the situation can and will change because God Himself will accomplish His own work.

Plastic People

April 2, 2013  |  Scott Masson

The reconstruction of gender and sexual identity today is a sign of what people worship. Worship of anything other than the true living God, turns us into plastic people and destroys life.

Gender and Sexuality

April 1, 2013  |  Joe Boot, Scott Masson, David Robinson, Jennifer Forbes, and Peter Jones

Human sexuality is intrinsic to the created order, and God's intent for it is happiness, blessing, and offspring; it is a gift. Rejection of this gift is the source of relational chaos and disorder; it is vandalism and not freedom.

Sex and the History of Christianity

April 1, 2013  |  Joe Boot

The church's historical attitudes toward sex, sexuality and marriage from the first century through to the present day have often been in error. Rather than something to be repressed or brazenly flaunted, sex is a gift of God to mankind, to be enjoyed and celebrated within the God-ordained context of marriage between one man and one woman.

A Biblical View of Marriage and Sexuality

April 1, 2013  |  Joe Boot

Sexuality and marriage have been distorted in our contemporary culture. This is a result of false religion which produces self-centred, self-gratifying perversion. But true biblical faith will lead to a proper, fulfilling and other-centred view of sex within marriage which reflects the beauty, sanctity and joy of God.

Redeeming Redefined Sexuality

April 1, 2013  |  Jennifer Forbes

Scripture repeatedly exhorts us to honor marriage and sex as perfect gifts from God. To rebel against the biblical prescriptions for sex and marriage is not liberation, but confusion and slavery.

Augustine on the Good of Marriage (Part 1)

April 1, 2013  |  David Robinson

Augustine's theology of marriage hinges on the three goods of marriage: children, fidelity, and sacrament. The denial of these goods is a critical point in contemporary efforts to redefine marriage.

Augustine on the Good of Marriage (Part 2)

April 1, 2013  |  David Robinson

The redefinition of marriage along subjective criteria of modern relationship theory, rather than the external standard of God's word, is in fact a denial of marriage itself.

On to Maturity

March 23, 2013  |  David Robinson

Our obedience is not the source of salvation; our obedience is our response to Christ's salvation. We are to turn ugly into beautiful, to right evil with goodness, and to replace darkness with light.

The High Priest

March 17, 2013  |  Joe Boot

In a world locked up by guilt, real and imagined, Christ's blood atonement is difficult to accept and yet urgently needed. We have transferred the notion of Christ as sin bearer, placing collective guilt upon groups of people termed 'oppressors.'

The Great Commission - The Biblical Mandate to Educate (1/2)

March 14, 2013  |  Joe Boot

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).

March 14, 2013  |  Scott Masson

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.

God-Centered Obedience

February 16, 2013  |  Joe Boot

Israel thought that they were the goal, the end, the people. God was to serve them. This attitude is reflected in the church today. Jesus says, Seek first the Kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you. That generation of Israelites died in the wilderness due to their rebellion. Disobedience always cuts us off from God's blessing. We should not presume upon our status, but obey Christ as the greater Moses.

Is Christianity a Charter for Oppression?

January 25, 2013  |  Scott Masson

Is Christianity a charter for oppression? Christianity has received a negative stereotype for being an oppressive religion that only caters to Westerners and for being the basis of colonialism. Is it true that Christianity is the root cause of oppression, sexism and slavery? How valid are these claims? Dr. Scott Masson challenges these claims, while addressing Christianity's role in the liberation of the oppressed.
