After the Election

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

As I have been mulling over this subject of what we Christians should remember after the election, it seems the Lord has impressed upon my heart three great truths from His Word. Deliberately call them to mind and meditate on them so that you don’t lose your bearings spiritually, or become unhinged. They are truths about Christ, about government, and about the church.

Forecasting Humility

pastor-d-scott-meadowsD. Scott Meadows

Boast not thyself of tomorrow; For thou knowest not what a day may bring forth (Prov 27.1).

Wisdom is, among other things, an awareness of reality, and acting consistently with it. Fools fantasize things as they wish and eventually discover by painful experience that this has been dangerous for them.

Beware of the Counsel of Gamaliel

gamaliel-tinyPeter Masters

And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: but if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God (Acts 5.38-39).

From Sabbath to Lord’s Day

Archibald A. Hodge

The object of this article is simply to state the grounds upon which the faith of the universal church rests when, while recognizing the fourth commandment as an integral part of the supreme, universal, and unalterable moral law, she affirms that the first day of the week has for this purpose— and for obvious reasons—been substituted for the seventh by the authority of the inspired apostles and, therefore, of Christ Himself.

Has Science Got Rid of God?

41012032015John Blanchard

Richard Dawkins, based at Oxford University, officially operates under the title of Charles Simonyi Reader and Professor of the Public Understanding of Science. Unofficially, he may be the best-known atheist in the world, partly as the result of his best-selling book The God Delusion, published in 2006.

Evil, World-Views, and the Powers: Part 2

Dr. Alan DunnDr. Alan J. Dunn

The eruption of jihadi-Islamism challenges our understanding of spiritual warfare. We would do well to analyze societies in terms of Paul’s powers and principalities. We “interpret the powers in a two-fold way, i.e. the principalities are regarded as both the socio-political structures of human society and the unseen spiritual forces lying behind these structures.” The foundation of culture is a mixture of common grace and common curse.

Evil, World-Views, and the Powers: Part 1

Dr. Alan DunnDr. Alan J. Dunn

What do we make of the intensifying onslaught of militant, jihadi-Islam? How are we to understand people who commit horrific atrocities in the name of their religion? The West has done its best to disconnect itself from theological authorities, and now we are confronted with acts of stunning cruelty, done ostensibly, for theological reasons. In spite of the West’s reluctance and bewilderment, the jihadis are demanding that we understand them in theological terms.

Roman Catholicism and the Gospel

catholic-church-domeW.J. Seaton

My Dear Friends,

There was a time when the believers in Christ had no doubts whatsoever concerning the church of Rome and its teaching. Being instructed in the Word of Life they were enabled to take the Romish dogma and apply it to the divine standards of Gospel truth.

Exclusive Psalmody?

Pastor-Jack-Seaton W. J. Seaton

According to a recent report in one of our Evangelical publications, there appears to be an upsurge of interest amongst some Pastors and Churches south of the border, on the subject of “Exclusive Psalmody;” that is, the singing of “psalms only” in the public worship of the Church. As one who writes out of a setting where this practice is commonplace amongst many, may I urge such Pastors and Churches to, perhaps, think again, on the subject.
