“Born Again” Christians?

There is a great irony in the Christian world. The apostle John wrote of a similar irony in the Jewish world of his day. They claimed to know God, and yet they had lost touch with biblical truth. John wrote of Jesus’ discussion with Nicodemus about being “born of the spirit.” And much later he wrote to the brethren to help them understand what it meant to be “begotten/born of God.” John wrote emphatically that, people who have the “seed of begettal” do not practice sin! They practice righteousness.

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.

Patrick’s Legacy

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

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.

A Biblical Worldview: Why Christians Fail?

biblical worldviewA 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

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

What God Says about Immigration

what God says about immigration

The news is full of stories about the thorny question of immigration. Here in North America, in Europe and many other nations, political leaders are wrestling with this issue. Due to conflict, oppression, or economic deprivation in other nations, many people are fleeing. They are seeking safe havens for themselves and their families. So what should a nation consider in establishing a fair, compassionate, and wise immigration policy — one that serves the country’s citizens and the potential refugees or immigrants. There are those who advocate opening the floodgates. Others want to put up barriers to limit or control access. So what was God’s advice? Are we willing to listen to what God says about immigration?
