Sunday Morning Preview - July 1, 2018

I hope everyone will be able to join me this Canada Day long weekend for the launch of our 2018 Summer Sermon Series entitled, “The Five Solas of the Reformation”.

We live in a day when the authority of Scripture is openly challenged, the necessity of grace and faith for salvation are ridiculed, Christ’s exclusive claim as the only way to the Father is mocked, and the Glory of God is profaned in favour of cultural acceptance and the approval of man.

The temptation to view the central ideas underpinning the Protestant Reformation as relics from a bygone era, best relegated to the scrap heap of history and forgotten, could not be more off base. Now more than ever the Church needs to be equipped to stand against secular onslaughts from without and deceiving wolves from within. This year our Summer Series is designed to do just that. I hope you will join me.

Sunday Morning Preview - June 10, 2018

Please join me this Sunday morning at DCC as we conclude our time in the Book of Malachi with Part Two of “The Day of the Lord”.

Having looked at a tremendous amount of scripture relating the many warnings and promises concerning the day of the Lord, there are many directions we could follow in our study of the topic from this point. One thing emerges in my mind as an overwhelming fact, —  when the Bible covers a topic this extensively, we are not left the option to ignore it or to write it off as the purview of a few intellectual scholars and some wing-nut fanatics.

The authors of the New Testament seem to be united in the idea that believers are to possess a faith-sustained holiness on the day of Christ — the day of His return, when the dead in Christ will be raised.

This Sunday we will examine what exactly it means to be “blameless at the coming of our Lord”.

Sunday Morning Preview - June 3, 2018

Over the last few weeks and months as I pored over the scriptures in preparation for this Sunday’s sermon, an amazing thing happened. Going back and forth, back and forth, to and fro, to and fro in my Bible (also drawing on a few key websites); suddenly the numbers all began to sync up in an almost magical way. Finally after more than two millennia the long hidden “day and hour” had emerged. 

Join me this Sunday morning as I announce the time and date of the great and terrible day! Also remember to bring your best (largest $$ sum) seed offering to help get this exciting news published around the world in every language… just kidding. Can you imagine?

Unfortunately the topic of this week’s passage has become associated, in the minds of many, with this kind of nonsensical hucksterism. Our goal this week will be to cut through all the silliness and get to the vitally important warnings and precious promises that will reach their ultimate fulfilment on The Day of the LORD.

Sunday Morning Preview - May 20, 2018

This fallen world can be a scary place. 

Natural disasters, wild animals, debilitating diseases, and sin-bent people all present endless, horrible possibilities. Our worst fears might spring upon us at any given moment causing  pain and suffering beyond all ability to endure. 

Those who want to avoid a life of cowering in paralysed isolation learn not to spend too much time thinking about it.
Enter the Bible with its approximately 120 admonitions to “fear not”.
Really? And what about the oft-repeated command to fear God? Isn’t that a contradiction?

Please join me this Sunday for more on this in, “The Fear of God - Part 2”.
