An Invitation for All Humanity

S G Angels

Are all religions equal? It is a question that is no longer debated by most young people in North America; they simply take it for granted that all religions have ultimate truth and one is as good as another. In a more academic setting the nuances of each religion may be debated but all religions […]

Live Simply So Others Can Simply Live

by Ladd

On Sunday afternoon I attended an introductory meeting for Voice of the Martyr’s, Canada. My friend Mark is the new representative for our region and made the program possible. If you are not familiar with Voice of the Martyr’s they are an advocacy group that not only informs the Canadian Christian public about persecution around […]

In the Old Testament the High Priest would enter into the Most Holy Place once a year on the Day of Atonement. When he entered the Most Holy Place he would be clothed in new linens and over his heart he wore a breastplate made of precious stones in which the twelve tribes of Israel […]

First Take the Log Out of Your Eye…

by Ladd

How many times have we heard the admonition to hate the sin but love the sinner? But that is the opposite of what Jesus really tells us in Scripture. He says hate the sin but also hate the sin in your own life. When we have taken the log out of our own eye then […]

“Christ without Christianity” my friend said the other night while we were talking. I was picking his brain about a Café that some friends were opening a couple of evenings a month. No doubt about his suggestion would attract the curious, but there was more to the name than being a simple “hook.” I believe […]

Religion or Jesus: Which Is It?

by Ladd

A Spiritual Element…

by Ladd

Very often when I tell someone I am a Christian the response is not overwhelmingly positive. The word Christian has picked up a lot of baggage over the years and some of that negativity is unfortunately deserved. As Christians we have projected a narrow, holier-than-thou attitude that has manifested itself in a great number of […]

A Look At Christianity In Our World Today

by Ladd

For many years there was a belief floating around that the more enlightened, educated, urban, and sophisticated people became the less interested in Christianity they became. Today, that myth is all but shattered with the renewal of spirituality throughout the world. In just the last hundred years Africa has seen Christianity grow from one percent […]

13 “When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” 14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” 16 Simon […]

God Made the First Move

Why do so many people reject Christianity? One of the major reasons may be that we Christians give the wrong impression about what Christianity is all about. The truth is that if we don’t really understand what Jesus did for us on the cross we really don’t know Him. And if we don’t know Him […]
