ChristianGovernance eletter – January 25, 2013
Abortion has never been legalized. No law has been repealed, nor modified to allow abortion. What happened 40 years ago was that a government institution crossed the boundaries of its legitimate authority and ordered – on the sole basis of the 14th Amendment – the states to disregard their state laws concerning the murder of unborn. Many have forgotten that the true name of that lawsuit shouldn’t be “Roe v. Wade” but “The US Supreme Court v. the state of Texas.”

Dear Friend of ChristianGovernance,
We are quickly approaching the end of another year, so some of us are looking back at 2012 to see what we’ve accomplished – and probably some of what we didn’t accomplish that we had hoped to do. You can keep the 2nd list short by not having any expectations, but that doesn’t work well for ambitious people. “Fail forward” is a popular saying – if you fail, learn from your mistakes, get up and keep going.

We are asking you to pray. If you have read a copy of our booklet, “The Biblical Legacy of Canada’s Parliament Buildings,” you will know that a clear Gospel message can be seen in the selection of Scriptures that are found primarily on the Tower of Peace and Victory (the Peace Tower). We bring out that message in the course of discussing the Scriptures and some Canadian history in this booklet.

A few days ago, we reported on our plans to include a session at our April Biblical worldview “Courageous Justice” conference on Environmentalism’s war on the poor. Because of the comprehensive and totalitarian nature of Environmentalism, it takes courage to stand against it for the sake of justice, justice for all, including the vulnerable and oppressed. The Frontier Centre this week reprinted a piece from the Washington Time on this topic: “Environmentalist power trips harm poor countries.”

In reading the latter chapters of Acts, I was struck by a contrast in Paul’s attitude towards two different types of people.
Christians today really seem to have difficulty dealing with the idea that we can, and should, handle different people differently. True, we are to love all men – even our enemies.

ChristianGovernance is excited to begin reporting on the plans for our third annual Biblical worldview event. It’s taking place, Lord willing, on April 20th, 2013 @ the same Ottawa location as last year: the banquet hall of Our Lady of the Visitation Catholic Church, 5338 Bank St.

Last year, NCFIC held a conference on “Gospel-Centered Marriages for a Glorious Church.” The excellent line-up of speakers included home school leader, Kevin Swanson. In his first talk, he emphasized that relationships are just as important as theology and issues. In that context, he talked about the importance of building and nurturing relationships among Christians.
The Canadian Press article reports: “If state officials determine there is a case of discrimination, they can order Liberty Ridge to take appropriate action and can set monetary damages.”
