Celtic Christianity: Lessons for Our Time
Jeff, Jeremiah, and Jeffrey were exploring Ireland to bring to our viewers vital insights from Celtic Christianity that will help us understand the historic struggles that Christians have faced in the past, the challenges we are facing now, and the choices we will need to make in the future. Check here for the latest news on this series.
Is the old covenant obsolete, the covenant God made with the nation of Israel? Many people think obsolete means that the old covenant was “done away,” was “abrogated,” and is of no effect now. But is this true? What is the writer of Hebrews really saying when he uses the words, that we translate “obsolete” and “passing away?” It may surprise you to know the truth of the matter.
We worship God because he is the God of truth. Truth is firm, steadfast, stable. Truth is the reality; from the marvellous miniature design of our DNA to the vast expanses of the universe our God created and controls everything that is real. So do you have the hope and confidence that comes from a love of the truth and the God whose nature is true.
Coming Soon: Dystopia
Recently there have been a variety of movies released by Hollywood that have been exploring the “post-apocalyptic” or “dystopian” themes about the future. Generally speaking, in such movies civil society is going or has already gone to hell – the reasons vary. As a result, everyone is left scrambling to survive or die amidst ruins, violence, and fear, except for the hero of the story and his/her love interest who somehow manage to save the day and restore hope in some form.

God of Mercy: Remember All His Benefits
While Canada and the US celebrate their national holidays, it would seem many have forgotten the source of their blessings. They are the “nones,” atheists, agnostics, and those with “no particular religion” who see no role for a God of mercy in their lives. On the other hand, David, the psalmist, reminds us to, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not his benefits.” So what are those benefits, and how does God extend his mercy to all those who worship and serve Him?
Today, in a 5 to 4 split decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the so-called “equal protection” amendment should be interpreted to mean that marriage cannot be restricted to only heterosexual couples since homosexual couples must also have equal rights to access marriage licenses. This same amendment, which was enacted during the U.S. Civil War period some 150 years ago, also was used by the court in 1973 to create via judicial reasoning a right to abortion. An explicit reading of the 14th amendment says absolutely nothing about either abortion or homosexual marriage.
Anyone traveling on the roads needs to be constantly alert to signs of danger. For the last few months the morning commute to work in Victoria, B.C. has been an increasing hassle due to the on-going construction on one of the main traffic arteries leading into the downtown core. A bicyclist who usually took this route to commute to work downtown observed on one particular morning a few weeks ago that all traffic was being squeezed into just one lane by a small group of flaggers who had placed numerous warning signs, barriers, and orange plastic cones to block off the inside fast lane. But, while most people feel obliged to take notice of the warning signs and make the appropriate inconvenient travel correction,a commuting cyclist, a 30s-something woman, decided to ignore the warning signs… Read more…
