Why does God’s discriminating love embarass most Christians?

Published on December 6, 2012 By SiteEditor

From: ChristianGovernance eletter, December 6, 2012

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.

Acts 19 – The Power of Antithesis

ChristianGovernance eletter – November 15, 2012

Many Christians in positions of influence today, and many other Christians, seem preoccupied with strategies to build networks and linkages with the adherents of other religions.

This is different from the building of ordinary relationships. The latter is a good thing and the normative way to build opportunities for evangelism as well as to build civilization.The latter is problematic, and quite different from the example left for us by Paul in Acts 19.

ChristianGovernance eletter – August 20, 2012
We have been busy over the last couple of months at ChristianGovernance. As you know, we are about to release our first book, Leaving God Behind , by Michael Wagner. Your window is quickly closing for taking advantage of our pre-publication offer of $14 – $6 off the regular price. Contact us at [email protected] or 613-496-0091 to order your discounted copy/ies.
Retreats
We have been finalizing details for a guys retreat and a young ladies retreat for those aged 14-19. The ladies retreat is scheduled for Oct. 19-21, the guys retreat for Oct. 26-28. These retreats are part of our Worldview and Apologetics Youth – WAY – ministry, which is anchored by our annual Eastern Ontario WAY Camp.

The ladies will be looking at over 20 danger signs of marrying the wrong guy. This will be based on teaching by a nouthetic counsellor . Nouthetic counselling is an explicitly Biblical model of counselling. Their retreat will be held in upstate New York. The men will be looking at three dangers to young men from J.C. Ryle’s short book, Thoughts for Young Men. One of his chapters deals with five dangers to young men – pride, the love of pleasure, thoughtlessness, contempt of Christianity and the fear of man’s opinion. We will be looking at three of them. Their retreat will be held in Eastern Ontario, west of Ottawa. Stay tuned for more details.
