Does the Bible Teach the Controversial Practice of Conversion Therapy?
The rash of recent laws concerning conversion therapy (CT) has many pastors worried that their government will declare the Bible to be hate speech in the near future. The LGBTQ+ agenda has made sexual orientation a fluid matter of health, rather than a fixed matter of biology. Combine this with several years of Covid policies that have restricted religious freedoms, and you have a recipe for tyranny. If you think this an overreaction, consider the following reports from recent days:…
Why Preaching A Sermon On Biblical Sexuality This Sunday Is Important!
On Sunday, January 16th, we will take a break from our series in Nehemiah to join in solidarity with faithful pastors who plan on preaching a sermon on biblical sexuality. The language of Bill C-4 may serve to criminalize preaching against homosexuality in Canada. The bill unanimously passed the federal parliament of Canada in December and goes into effect on January 8th. I’m grateful for the faithful example John MacArthur has provided of preaching God’s Word with boldness and integrity,…

Show Yourself to Be Mighty to Save

One of those promises comes to us from the words of David in Psalm 27, “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1-2). Teach us to rest in that promise even now. When…
Mindful of the Lessons We Are Learning
Heavenly Father, we come to you because we know that you alone have the answers to our greatest needs. You are faithful and kind to hear us when we call upon you. When everything else in our world is turned upside down, you remain upright. You are steadfast and sure. You are our Rock when every other foundation is shifting sand. We are grateful that it seems the earliest predictions of this coronavirus crisis are not bearing out in reality.…
Looking to a Sovereign God in Uncertain Times
Heavenly Father, we come to you during a time of great uncertainty. We do not know how long our nation will be stuck in isolation, nor do really have any idea of the magnitude of this Coronavirus crisis. Some of us do not know what our job situation will be at the end of this. Most of us are preparing for some level of financial impact. We come to you during this time of uncertainty, because we know that you…
