Fathers: How Not To Provoke Your Children To Anger

Tue. Oct. 06, 2015By: Paul Carter

In Ephesians 6:1-4 the Apostle Paul says:  1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), 3 “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” 4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:1–4 ESV) This section of instruction comes near the end of what scholars refer to as “a household...Read More

Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus - A Review

Wed. May. 20, 2015By: Christopher Peters

Nearly 1 in 4 people on earth are Muslim.  What do we know about our Muslim neighbours’ beliefs?  How well equipped are we to discuss matters of faith with our Muslim friends?  The reason that I chose to read Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus was the hope of gaining a better understanding of the Islamic faith.  I was richly rewarded for the time spent in this book as it provides a great deal of information about Islam and gives insight into the Muslim life through the author’s...Read More

Covenantal Apologetics - A Review

Wed. Apr. 08, 2015By: Justin Oliver

According to the Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, Apologetics is “a branch of theology devoted to the defense of the divine origin and authority of Christianity”. In other words, as the subtitle of Oliphints book suggests, it is the principles and practise in defence of our Christian faith. Apologetics is integral, and is often a branch of evangelism as evangelism deals a lot with criticism from the unbeliever and a myriad of questions presented by that person, which can ultimately rock their...Read More

Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus - A Review

Wed. Apr. 08, 2015By: Keith Giffen

It has been a long time since I picked up a book and 2 days later - it’s finished. Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus by Nabeel Qureshi is a page turning journey that leads the reader though the life of a young Muslim boy well schooled in Islamic Apologetics into a life changing encounter with the risen Christ. I highly recommend this book for any Christian interested in both learning the basics of Islam as well as a helpful tool in some basic apologetics for our own faith. The book starts with a...Read More

Shortly after Jesus’ death, two of his followers are walking to Emmaus, talking about the tragic events of the preceding days.  They encounter a stranger who asks them about their sad state, to whom they relay all that has recently happened.  This stranger is Jesus and while they walk, he gives them the full picture of his true life, from the beginning of scripture onward.  He enlightens them about the one long graceful story of His life, much greater than the apparent tragedy...Read More

The Christian Bible can be a difficult read at times. Jesus often spoke in parables, visions recorded by the prophets seem crazy, the killing innocent baby sheep is difficult to comprehend, violent wars describing intense famines and cannibalism is disturbing, the Song of Solomon is X-rated, and Leviticus is just odd! You will notice that the majority of these questions are drawn from narratives in the Old Testament. So, how does this fit together? What does it mean? Why does the Old Testament...Read More

Church Discipline: Principles And Process

Wed. Mar. 04, 2015By: Paul Carter

The following principles have been distilled from 1 Corinthians 4:18-5:13.  There are of course a handful of other passages in the New Testament that should also be consulted in order to develop a comprehensive grasp of the Biblical teaching on church discipline.  Matthew 18 deals with personal disputes between members, Galatians 6:1 deals with generic Christian correction and 1 Timothy 5 deals with the specific case of public error by recognized church teachers.  1...Read More

How To Read (And Love) Your Bible - Part 2

Wed. Mar. 04, 2015By: Paul Carter

One of the most useful courses I ever took at York University during my undergrad program was called “The Gospels And Early Christian Sources”, or something to that effect.  Basically it was an introduction to textual criticism and source theory, a discipline I found wildly ambitious and overreaching.  However, for that course I was required to purchase a book that I have come to love more every year that I have owned it.  The book is called “Synopsis Of The Four Gospels”, edited...Read More

Tithing In The Old And New Covenants

Tue. Jan. 27, 2015By: Paul Carter

This morning in our RMM readings we read about Jacob’s dream and Jacob’s vow:  20 Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat and clothing to wear, 21 so that I come again to my father’s house in peace, then the LORD shall be my God, 22 and this stone, which I have set up for a pillar, shall be God’s house. And of all that you give me I will give a full tenth to you.” (Genesis 28:20–22 ESV) You will recall...Read More
