The Bible is very clear that we are to march to our Lord’s instructions. By doing so, we will automatically be at odds with whatever prevailing culture surrounds us. The difference between Christianity and the views of the world are becoming increasingly self evident as our society continues to slip from its Judeo-Christian moorings. This Christmas season I came across an article in the Cambridge Times under the notice NEW AT THE LIBRARY. The public service announcement was to inform the reading public on what it considers suitable reading for our Young Adults. The following is a taste of what you can expect to see in today’s public library:
The long awaited release of this magnificent book has finally arrived. In the Lord’s providence the release of this book coincides with the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade in England. Spearheaded by a dedicated Christian, William Wilberforce, the spiritual impetus came from committed preachers like John Wesley.
In the early 90’s, Ligonier Ministries of Canada was born with Tom Faichney as its first director. Since those early years, much has changed including adopting the name Sola Scriptura Ministries International. Many of you knew Tom. I had the privilege of receiving an email from Tom this afternoon from all places Iraq. The Lord has called Tom to serve as a chaplain in the U.S. military. Below is the update. Please make Tom and his family a concerted item of prayer this Christmas.
The fact that you can sit upright and are reading this article is proof that you are a recipient of what is called â€œcommon graceâ€. The term â€œcommonâ€, with reference to grace, is somewhat of a misnomer in todayâ€™s vernacular.
Ever since our Lord walked the earth, there have been doctrinal problems associated with the spread of the Gospel. There is nothing wrong with the Gospel itself, but our Lord predicted that where ever the Gospel is proclaimed there would be those who would seek to undermine the doctrinal footing of the Church. C.H. Spurgeon understood this problem all too well and often reminded his congregation that Satan will often mix a great deal of truth with a slight hint of error in order to confuse the flock. The question rarely is the doctrine right or wrong. More often than not, it takes the form of right and almost right.
After patiently waiting for many years, the long awaited new website is at last ready. If you are reading this post, you are already enjoying the new features and interface. It is our hope and prayer, that this new site will be a resource to our friends and supporters. At this point, we are just beginning to tap into the wealth of possibilties that such a tool would mean to the ministry. Please check back frequently for updates, news and information as we try to stay in touch.
What Do We Mean by
by Dr. W. Robert Godfrey
There are two main issues that divide Protestant Catholics from Roman Catholics. Both groups claim to be catholic, that is, part of the apostolic, universal church of Jesus Christ. Roman Catholics believe we Protestants departed from that church in the sixteenth century. Protestant Catholics believe they departed earlier.
One of the ways we seek to influence Canadian society is by displaying and distributing Reformed literature. A very effective way of doing this is by participating at Home School events, denominational conventions, Christian trade shows and local church conventions.
