Non-Christian academics not the same as Christian professionals!

Published on December 14, 2012 By SiteEditor

From: ChristianGovernance eletter – December 11, 2012

It is remarkable how illiterate today’s academics and professionals are. It should be obvious to Christians that professionalism is primarily a theological and ethical matter, not primarily a technical standing. Because of this, we should not expect non-Christian professionals or experts to be as competent as Christian professionals.

More about ChrGov’s April 2013 “Courageous Justice” Biblical worldview conference

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.”

Why does God’s discriminating love embarass most Christians?

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.

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.

Can we stop Christian kids from leaving the Church?

Published on October 12, 2012 By SiteEditor

I said a few weeks ago that we would have some comment on a new study released on why Canadian youth are leaving the Church. The study, “Hemorrhaging Faith,” was sponsored by several different groups, including the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada. This trend seems to be the subject of a growing number of discussions among church leaders in the past few years. This study is apparently the first one providing a useful amount of Canadian data and analysis. Christian leaders involved in the project have, therefore, said that it’s a very important piece of work. The results, though, weren’t unsurprising so I’m not sure how important the project really is. In an article on the report published by EFC’s magazine, Faith Today , John Wilkinson, chair of the EFC’s Youth ad Young Adult Ministry Roundtable, said “For those of us who are close to what is going on in youth ministry across Canada, the research findings are not so much surprising as they are confirming.” There may be one important exception to this, which is what we want to consider here. At this time, we have not yet read the original report. We have been following some of the comments made by others.
