Comments Off on Santa Klaus, Islamic Jihadis, Western leaders and You? Make the Connection!, Blog, Jeff Patton, by CGP.
Let’s not forget the painful lessons of a year ago!
“How much more needless blood must be spilled in the Western world before its leadership comes to its senses? When Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, walked into a Christmas party with Syed’s coworkers in San Bernardino, California, they didn’t bring along some egg nog and cookies. No, those joy sucking Grinches took automatic rifles, pistols, and pipe bombs. In cold blood they killed 14, and wounded another 17. They even took along a video camera to record their massacre for the Internet-viewing pleasure of their fellow jihadis…
Comments Off on Will the Flood of Immigrants Occupy and Change Us?, Blog, Jeff Patton, by CGP.
The flood of some 800,000 migrants and refugees streaming into Europe in 2015 are stretching the Old World’s civic resources and in some places the public’s civility. And this flood of new arrivals is showing no signs of slowing down. Some officials are now speculating that about 3 million people will come to search for a better life in the West over the next few years. Will the status quo of the West be disrupted and undermined by the cultural/religious baggage that these millions of newcomers are bringing with them?

Personal Responsibility – God’s Perspective
Dealing with Addictions
With the rising use of fentanyl, the issue of addiction and drug related death has made news headlines. And yet, there is a lot of controversy over the “harm reduction” strategies, and “safe-injection sites” that are touted as solutions to the problem. These methods lack a serious look at the issue of personal responsibility in solving problems of addiction. For the scoffers who are caught up in their destructive lifestyles, and for the “addict enablers” who out of compassion or duty continue to support people in their addictions, counsel from God’s word might fall on deaf ears. However, biblical instruction when given to a wise person will have the effect of helping them assume their personal responsibility in order to effect change – and live productive lives. So what does God have to say about this crisis? More

Day of Decision
A recent decision in the BC Supreme Court underscored the clash between the BC Law Society and Trinity Western University, over their “community covenant” that forbids sexual relationships outside of heterosexual marriage. The courts decision has ruled in favour of the university and freedom of religion saying, “A society that does not admit and accommodate differences cannot be a free and democratic society: One in which its citizens are free to think, to disagree, to debate and to challenge the accepted view without fear of reprisal.” So, for the moment, their is a sigh of relief for those in Canada who value their liberty rights to freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, and freedom of association. But what does the future hold? More

The Creator and the Creation
Can Christian ministers have any credibility if they deny the existence of the Creator and the creation? In Canada recently, the news has been highlighting a controversy in the United Church of Canada (UCC) over a ministerial review of Gretta Vosper, an ordained minister in their employ, who is an avowed atheist. She, and those who support her, deny the inspiration of scripture. They deny the Creator and the creation. So what is the reality and what is the delusion? More

Coming Before the King
Coming before the king was often a difficult task that required great determination and patience, as it was only the few who could gain an audience with the king in order to make requests, or have grievances settled. As a tour of Hampton Court made clear, it was unlikely that any commoner would have the honour of coming before the king. Can we have access to the king? More

Christians Remember the Day of Atonement. Why?
Considering the role that the saints will play at Christ’s return, it becomes plain that Christians remember the day of Atonement to be better prepared to rule with Christ as kingly priests. So what lessons does the day of Atonement teach? What are the functions of priests that those God calls today need to be prepared to undertake? The example of Aaron’s sons, Nadab and Abihu, make it plain that those who serve God must be knowledgeable and show appropriate respect. God has standards and expectations that we must be aware of, and there are consequences for disregarding God’s instructions when it comes to worshipping in spirit and truth. More
