Can the network of cellulose veins in a spinach leaf, when stripped of its plant cells and replaced with human heart tissue, someday be used to repair the damage caused by heart-attacks? Or can the cellulose structure of broccoli or cauliflower, when stripped of their plant cells, be used as growing platforms for replacement lungs? Though it sounds like pure science fiction, bioengineers at the Massachusett’s Worchester Polytechnic Institute and at other research centres are working feverishly to make such ideas a reality.

Lord’s Passover — A New Commandment
Jesus, before being betrayed, established a new commandment — the Lord’s Passover. Raising his glass of wine he said, ” I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.” The big question for all believers is, “Will we be there?”
At the beginning of the spring festival season — the beginning of the 14th of Abib/Nisan according to the biblical calendar — Jesus ate his last meal. Then, he washed their feet. Finally, he celebrated this special time by offering up the wine and bread as symbols of his impending sacrifice.
Quarto-deciman Controversy — Imitating Christ
The disciples, followed in Christ’s footsteps. They continued to celebrate the Lord’s Passover as a memorial of his death, yearly on the 14th of Abib. This eventually led to a great controversy with the Roman Church. More

Biblical Worldview: A Mystery Revealed
Over the centuries from before the time of Moses the biblical worldview has defined reality from the Creator’s perspective. God has kept his secret things, his mysteries, and given to his children those things that he has revealed. Both Matthew and Paul wrote about the mystery that has been revealed to the few and kept secret from the world. This revelation has been given that we might know how to obey God and fulfill our purpose. Yet most people, even Christians, reject this biblical worldview.
In North America many celebrate with beer and revelry a day they say is in honour of St. Patrick of Ireland. But here again is a mystery! Very few acknowledge that Patrick was actually a scripturalist. He was faithful to a strongly biblical worldview. How do we know? More

Esther and Purim
Power of a Biblical Worldview
The scriptures, the source of the biblical worldview, claim to be “God-breathed.” They offer God’s revelation of the reality of the world and our role in His plan. In teaching believers “how to live right” the scriptures challenge us to fulfill two overarching commands. “Live by every word of God” and “Bring every thought into captivity.” This must be done in order to do our part in fulfilling Christ’s will and accomplishing His purpose. But, this cannot be done, except that we have faith as a sure foundation — and this faith is strengthened as we read the stories of our ancestors in the faith.

Two Trees and Two Worldviews
When I got up this morning, after losing an hour’s sleep with the start of Daylight Saving Time, I turned on CBC’s Sunday Edition. While fixing breakfast, I began listening—but promptly turned it off. It was just too much to swallow, before I’d even had my morning cup of tea.
What is it about these liberal “thinkers” that so aggravates? Perhaps, it’s because they’ve fallen for the world’s oldest con, and I hate to see people deceived and used…read more

A Biblical Worldview: Why Christians Fail?
A recent Barna survey concluded that, of the American public polled, only 4% had a biblical worldview. And evangelical Christians didn’t do much better, at only 9% . So what were the criteria that the pollsters used as being indicative of the biblical worldview?
There are absolute moral truths
The Bible is true and accurate
Christ was sinless
God, the Creator, rules today
Salvation is a gift
Christians should share their faith
Satan is real
So how is it that some call themselves Christians, and yet do not have a “biblical worldview?” And does it really matter? More

God’s Immigration Policy:

Strangers and Foreigners
Nations face many dilemmas as they try to establish policies dealing with an influx of immigrants. God had provided wise guidelines for his nation to follow. To deal judiciously with resident aliens, God taught that there was to be “one law” for all. Multiculturalism was not a part of the national covenant with God. There was one God and only one way to worship God. God’s love for all people meant that he wanted them to come to know him — the Creator of all people. The nation was to be a safe haven for all who wanted to find their refuge in God. More
