Christian Leadership — Are You Prepared?

“Then I saw thrones, and the people sitting on them had been given the authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony about Jesus and for proclaiming the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his statue, nor accepted his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They all came to life again, and they reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”  Revelation 20

“You are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
And have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
And have made us kings and priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth.” Revelation 5

Our Leadership Role Model

Chanukah, the national festival of dedication, teaches lessons of godly loyalty in leadership. But most Christians do not know these lessons. They are unaware of Jesus’ message at this time of year. Scripture makes it plain that we are to imitate Christ, patterning our lives after his example of godly loyalty in leadership. There will be a reward for all of those who are called into a covenant relationship with the Father. For if we follow Christ’s righteous example of leadership, we will be co-inheritors with him. How do we prepare for this future? More

Imitating Christ — As Paul Instructs

It is easy to quickly read a bible passage and miss the deeper meaning. The apostle Paul said to the Corinthians, “Imitate me as I imitate Christ.” But, there is so much more to the story. Paul’s letters urge Christians to be reflective learners, examining themselves. Asking, “Does my life emulate the life of a true disciple.” God judges not only our behaviour – whether we are following Jesus’ pattern of living – but our motivation. This is because God has called his disciples to be faithful stewards. Imitating Christ, they will observe that pattern of right living given by the Father, in both action and thought. So are we imitating Christ as we should? More

Leaders or managers?

“Leaders are people who do the right thing; managers are people who do things right.” (Professor Warren G. Bennis) So where are the “leaders” in our world, the ones who “do the right thing?” We have many charismatic figures in the world — politicians, sports figures, adventurers, business executives.  But do we have leaders who have the vision and set a true course to inspire others to do the right thing, those who exercise transformational leadership.  More

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

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
