Fundraising appeal and Activity report for ChristianGovernance

Published on December 20, 2012 By SiteEditor

December 20, 2012

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 2 nd 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.

Politicians receiving “The Biblical Legacy of Canada’s Parliament Buildings”

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.

Why does God’s discriminating love embarass most Christians?

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.

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.

Christian worldview progress requires strong commitment to the Church and Christian relationships

From ChristianGovernance eletter, November 23, 2012

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 relentlessness of modern homosexualism

ChristianGovernance eletter – November 3, 2012
New York is experiencing another example of homosexual tyranny . The homosexual movement has embraced the ideology of modern socialist totalitarianism. Perhaps it’s more accurate to say that modern homosexualism is a totalist ideology, accepting no dissent and taking no prisoners.
Two lesbians have filed a human rights complaint because a wedding venue has refused to serve them. This is a private sector operation. The suffocating jackboot of the homosexual industry is pressed against the neck and windpipe of fundamental liberty. It’s at war with Christianity, the only source of true freedom.
The homosexualists are using human rights law against Christianity. This case illustrates the incompatibility between human rights law and God’s law. The Bible doesn’t teach human rights theory. Far too many Christians today continue to straddle the fence between these two concepts of law. By doing so, they are failing to realize the nature of the conflict. Thus, they are contributing to confusion among Christians as to the nature and seriousness of the current battle. This helps to seal Christianity’s fate until reformation through repentance and Biblical worldview become the focus of the Christians who remain.

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.”

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.

Why is the modern western Church so weak and ineffective?

The following is a key aspect of Christian reformation. It is a comment on Revelation 6:10 in a commentary on the book of Revelation.

Revelation 6:10 – They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?”
