The 20 year old dad at the cafe

daddaughter

My job consists of me driving around from cafe to cafe, finding wifi and designing websites. Normally I won't witness anything enthusing. In fact, on more than one occasion I've heard people brag about their partying over the weekend and how drunk they got. Another time I heard two people talking about their marital problems, and long story short they were having an affair with one another (if you're a guy, don't be stupid and go to a woman for counselling, go to your pastor or an older man). … [Read more...]

Are You Embarrassed?

embarrassed

For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. – Mark 8:38 That above statement of Jesus is one of my life verses (yeah, I’ve got life verses). It has both increased my boldness to be public about my convictions and also changed the way I interpret thorny issues.  Christ is saying, just after Peter confesses Him as Messiah and calling the d … [Read more...]

“I Will Give You Rest” by Charles Spurgeon

"I WILL GIVE YOU REST."  A COMMUNION ADDRESS AT MENTONE.BY CHARLES HADDON SPURGEON  "I will give you rest." —Matthew 11:28. We have a thousand times considered these words as an encouragement to the labouring and the laden; and we may, therefore, have failed to read them as a promise to ourselves. But, beloved friends, we have come to Jesus, and therefore He stands engaged to fufil this priceless pledge to us. We may now enjoy the promise; for we have obeyed the precept. The faithful and … [Read more...]

Arminians, Not Pagans

arminian

We Reformed folk have made some grave errors, and I'll be the first to admit it. I'm not sure how it exactly comes about, but let me suggest that we become puffed up in our knowledge of God's grace and then unknowingly look down on others that don't *know* the same doctrines we know. I've sinned in this area and have had to repent to my Arminian brothers and sisters. To expand a bit more on this, let me give you an example from my own life. When we go home to visit my family, inevitably we … [Read more...]

Would Jesus be on Facebook if He walked the earth today?

jesusfb

I live in Canada, a country that used to hold the title of "world's heaviest internet user". The average Canadian in 2011 would spend 45 hours online every month. In 2012 that number decreased to 41 hours per month which has led our neighbours to the south taking our title at 43 hours online per month. Canada has a population of 35 million and 26 million of those have the internet. Of the 26 million that have the internet, nearly 100 percent (99.5%) go online at least once a day. The point is … [Read more...]

Your sins are done away with!

SINS

Hebrews 9:28 - so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.I'm reading through Hebrews right now and I read this passage last night. There are two things I want to encourage you with today:1. If you are saved, if you are in Christ, your sins are done away with! Your record is clean because of Jesus Christ's life, death and resurrection. This is the good news and it's the … [Read more...]

Drink Your Beer To The Glory Of God!

BEER

Recently I asked on the Facebook page if a pastor who has a drink occasionally is above reproach. The answers were varied, with supporting biblical and historical texts for both arguments. This led me to ask myself a question: "Since there is so much controversy surrounding alcohol(and smoking), should Christians bother putting themselves in the midst of this debated issue?" In the Bible it would be pretty hard to say that alcohol and smoking in themselves are sins, since it doesn't explicitly … [Read more...]
