We are looking forward to visiting the West Coast on October 30, 2017 for the regional conference hosted by Cloverdale Baptist Church in conjunction with The Gospel Coalition. This year’s event is called Hope on the Edge of a Precipice and the link for details are below:
Papal Indulgences/Indulgences for the Dead
Arguably the practice of granting Indulgences traces its roots to the earliest centuries of the Christian era. It is part of the elaborate and often complicated Roman Catholic system of penance. The Catholic Catechism describes it as, “a remission before God of the temporal punishment due to sins whose guilt has already been forgiven, which the faithful Christian who is duly disposed gains under certain prescribed conditions through the action of the Church which, as the minister of redemption, dispenses and applies with authority the treasury of the satisfactions of Christ and the saints” .
As you all know 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. We thought we would start celebrating a little early at the close of 2016 by inviting our good friend, Carl Trueman, to join in Vancouver, British Columbia.
We have just released our latest book by Dr. Jerry Bergman entitled How Darwinism Corrodes Morality: Darwinism, Immorality, Abortion and the Sexual Revolution.
VCY America invited Dr. Bergman to appear on television to discuss the book. To see the interview click the link above the cover graphic.
Above is the cover of our latest book by Dr. Jerry Bergman, How Darwinism corrodes morality. This book looks at how Darwinism has adversely affected morality in Western culture, not only sexual morals but also the mistreatment of minority races, the killing of the sick and diseased and the rise of the abortion movement. Key figures of the twentieth century are considered: Havelock Ellis, Margaret Sanger, Friedrich Nietzsche, Sigmund Freud, Benjamin Spock, Karl Pearson, Anders Behring, Breivik and others.
The news feeds are buzzing this morning with reports of a shooting in a Quebec City Mosque last night. Any act of senseless violence perpetrated against any people group is to be condemned and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. There is no justifiable reason to walk into any house of worship and begin destroying fellow image bearers who are engaged in exercising their freedom to practice their faith.
Happy New Year To All Our Friends

Christine Farenhorst is a Canadian writer with deep roots in the CRC, the daughter of a noted minister. Her gift of historically based storytelling is nowhere more evident than in this collection of devotionally enriching narratives. Complete with biblical references and thought-provoking questions, The Sweet Taste of Providence delights the imagination, stimulates the mind, and nourishes the soul. I am honored to recommend it.

This past weekend saw the renewal of our London Conference at Community Bible Church, Lucan, Ontario. It was a delight to work the weekend with my old friend in the Gospel, Joseph Pipa; a truly gifted man of God.
We enjoy a great many liberties in Canada. For the time being the greatest freedom is the one which allows us to worship our Lord and God unimpeded by Government opposition. We are grateful and thankful to our Heavenly Father for allowing us to live in a land as great as Canada.
