Environment and Climate

by Cal Beisner and Joe Boot and John Bellingham and John Hultink and Ted Fenske

The survival of our present civilization depends on the gospel of a restored and renewed creation and our abiding faithfulness to God’s revelation. In a word, obedience is green! 

 

Cultural Theology

by Andrew Sandlin and Jeremy Johnston and Joe Boot and Peter Jones and Ryan Eras

September 25, 2019

Cultural theology is the discipline of understanding what God’s Word says about culture, and applying that understanding to those various cultural spheres. Cultural theology is an approach that aims to get to the root of all human activity by examining the god concept at work in a particular cultural sphere.

 

Witchcraft

by Joe Boot and Jonathan Burnside and Peter Jones and Ryan Eras

April 14, 2016

Witchcraft is the attempt to acquire knowledge or power by manipulation and control. Scripture is clear that, apart from God and his word, such an act is in fact a headlong plunge into folly. The apostle James reminds us the path to true spiritual insight: “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him” (James 1:5). A humble and faithful plea to the only wise God is the way of wisdom. Any supposed shortcuts are the way of rebellion.

 

What is the Gospel?

by Andrew Sandlin and Dennis Doty and Joe Boot and Michael Nazir-Ali and Ryan Eras

December 7, 2015

If the Gospel is rightly described as Good News, we must ask what the news is about. The answer Jesus gives is that it is “the good news of the kingdom of God” (Luke 4:43; Acts 8:12). The good news of the Gospel is that Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords, and that He is building His kingdom of righteousness among us.

 

Gnosticism & Paganism

by David Robinson and Joe Boot and Pamela Frost and Peter Jones and Ryan Eras

July 6, 2015

Alone among world religions, biblical Christianity acknowledges God as a being totally distinct from His created order. Pagan beliefs and gnostic ideologies seek ways for man to become as God, while Christianity is clear that the chief end of man is to love and glorify God as His image-bearer. 

 

Social Justice (Part 2)

by George Grant and Jeffery Ventrella and Joe Boot and Ryan Eras and Scott Masson

March 5, 2015

Social Justice  – properly understood in light of the Word of God – is indispensable to the Christian. It is a reflection of the social nature of the Triune God, and is to be pursued in every area of our lives.

Social Justice (Part 1)

by Andrew Sandlin and George Grant and Joe Boot and Ryan Eras and Scott Masson

October 4, 2014

“Social Justice” is a popular but often misunderstood term. In order to truly understand and do justice, we must base its definition and practice on the eternal, infallible Word of God, and on no other foundation.

The Colour of Death and the Law of Life

by Joe Boot and Mark Musser and Michael J. Oard

June 10, 2014

Rejecting the apocalyptic predictions and pseudo-science of the popular media does not mean a commitment to a misuse of God's creation – on the contrary. In Christ, we become God's redeemed gardeners, tilling and tending all things, turning creation into a culture to the glory of God.

 

Sanctity of Life

by Jennifer Forbes and Joe Boot and Scott Masson and Stephanie Gray

December 1, 2013

The West is sacrificing its children to Moloch, and the Church cannot remain silent.

 

Complicit or Complacent

by Jennifer Forbes

December 1, 2013 | Jeremiah 6:14; Ezekiel 13:10; Ephesians 5:11

Canadian churches and individual Christians are often silent on the issue of abortion. The implications of this phenomenon are troubling. As Christians, we need to take seriously the whole counsel of God.

 

An Introduction to Utopia

by Joe Boot

September 1, 2013 | Ephesians 1:3-14; Proverbs 16:4

Christianity is irreconcilable with any form of utopian philosophy. Since God is in charge of history, and has revealed the plan of his Kingdom reign, efforts to bring about utopia are acts of rebellion against God

by Andrew Sandlin and Jennifer Forbes and Joe Boot and Scott Masson

September 1, 2013

In the attempt to create paradise on earth, man has rejected God and deified the State.
