Men for the Hour Q & A Session
Joe Boot answers audience questions such as, What does it mean to love our wives as Christ loved the church? How does a certificate legitimize a marriage? Should there be a Christian government, and what would that look like? What is the proper application of God’s law to contemporary life?
Men and Our Orders
Jesus is the only man who kept the Law of God perfectly. The laws of our land are founded on the principles of biblical law; the biblical law continues to be a model of justice and righteousness, holding all men equally accountable before God, and guarding against tyranny.
Contemporary Relevance of Biblical Law
All that is ever needed in history are faithful Christian people. When there are faithful Christian people applying God's word, transformation is the ultimate result.
What's in a Word? Language and Law
God's words are actions and always achieve the purpose for which they were made. Our laws need God's words if they are to achieve anything.
Crime and Punishment
John Calvin said that the protection of the community from unjust men through fear of punishment, without which they have no other reason for lawful behaviour, was the purpose of the law. The history and abandonment of this legal perspective in Canadian public policy is discussed.
