Tiffany‘s bad Experience July 17, 2019

Tiffany Adams recently had a bad experience. She fell asleep on a short Air Canada flight from Quebec City to Toronto. Waking up, she found herself alone on a cold, dark plane. Unable to charge her cell phone to call for help, she eventually found a flashlight, used it to help her unlatch the door near the flight attendant’s seat and signaled the ground crew. Life is certainly full of surprises, sometimes frightening and bizarre, such as joblessness, serious health issues, or the loss of loved ones. How reassuring to know that when we are in a proper relationship with the God of the Bible, by placing our trust in Jesus, even in such dire circumstances, the Saviour invites, “Come to me all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He who has all power can handle any problem we have.

Brighid July 15, 2019

Brighid is her real name. She was married last month in Western Canada. When still a young girl, her mother died. Her father remarried, but then he too passed away. The stepmother moved away. Brighid and her sister were alone. Then something wonderful happened. The parents of one of Brighid’s high school friends took her into their home as another daughter. Brighid’s story reminds us of what God wants to do for us all. The Bible says, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” separating us from our Maker. But something wonderful happened. 2,000 years ago “Christ died for our sins” at Calvary. John’s gospel explains, “As many as received Him, (Jesus) to them He gave the right to become the children of God, to those who believe on His name.”

The Pleasure Principle July 12, 2019

Psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud wrote, “What decides the purpose of life is simply the pleasure principle.” Freud, an influential figure in the study of human behaviour, has many followers in our modern world…people who seek pleasure by self-indulgence. Solomon of old tried and failed, writing “I did not withhold from my heart any pleasure.” Later realizing this lifestyle was not working, he concluded, “All is vanity.” King David, in the Psalms, urged his readers to turn to God for true pleasure. He wrote, “You will show me the path of life, at your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.” Jesus added more information, with His words, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Hear more at an Evangelical church near you.

My Truth July 10, 2019

Atlantic Canada Columnist Russell Wangersky responded to a statement by former Liberal Cabinet Minister Wilson-Raybould. During the SNC Lavelin Group controversy. Ms. Wilson-Raybould said, “…I hope that I have the opportunity to speak my truth.” Mr. Wangersky wrote “There is no “my truth” or “your truth.” there is truth and then there are personal opinions.” He is right on. Many believe that spiritual truth comes in many versions; that there are different and acceptable truths on how to get to heaven. It is true, there are many opinions, but only one truth. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” This comes from the Bible, God’s truth which “sets us free.” Someone said, “Opinions differ, truth is absolute.”

Interesting English Language July 8, 2019

The English language can be a bit crazy. We park in driveways and drive on parkways. There is no ham in hamburgers. A wise guy is different than a wise man. Often we don’t mean what we say or say what we mean. Not so with the God of the Bible. For example, “There is a way that seems right unto a man, but its end is the way of death.” He warns, “Prepare to meet your God.” Consider finding a Bible-based, Christ-centered church near you. You’ll learn that the Bible is refreshingly sensible. Millions have been transformed by the famous John’s gospel chapter 3, verse 16. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” God always means what He says!

To Live and to Die July 5, 2019

“People are like stained glass windows; they sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is only revealed if there is light from within.” That interesting observation was made by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross in her book, To Live and to Die. Light within can only come from the Lord Jesus Christ. John, referring to our Lord, wrote, “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness.” Jesus Himself affirmed this truth, explaining how each one of us can have that light within, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows me shall not walk in darkness but have the light of life.” Following Jesus comes by acknowledging our spiritual darkness and asking God for forgiveness. Then we have His light within.

Drones and Birds July 3, 2019

Last month, Iran shot down a United States Drone, an unmanned aerial vehicle. John H. Storer, writing about birds in The Scientific American says, birds “…are constantly adjusting automatically to air pressure and the changing requirement…” Now if a bird’s wing does something “automatically”, it had to be designed. Everything that adjusts automatically had to be designed. Drones were skillfully and laboriously designed by intelligent scientists, Nothing just happens. So who made the amazing versatile bird? “Chance”? No, The Bible says “God created…every winged bird according to its kind.” He created all of us too. And made a personal relationship with Him possible by sending Jesus Christ to die in our place on the cross. Think about that today.
