Is Petri Dish Meat The Answer??

BLOG: meat

Science, is increasingly becoming the perceived saviour of the world in western society.The problem that our science-deifying culture does not want to admit is that the “the heart of the problem is the problem of the heart”. That is, the sin problem of the human heart. ...

Out of My Hands

BLOG - out of my hands

So that is how it’s possible to give up the ownership of our lives to Jesus Christ. He is Lord. He knows what’s he’s doing. And more importantly, he has already paid the bills of our sledgehammer spree. As 2 Timothy 1.10 says, Jesus is the one, “who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel”(NIV). He has come to make“...

Sin is On its Way Out

It is now time in this last newsletter of October 2014 to look at the actual work of mortifying our sin. We have considered John Owen’s thoughts on the need for mortification, the nature of mortification and what we have to consider in preparation for the work. Now it is time to ask the question, “What will be the means or the agent of the mortification of our sin?...

Setting the Direction for the Work of Mortification

Having looked at the necessity and that nature of mortification, it is now time to set ourselves toward the work itself. John Owen in his book, “Of the Mortification of Sin in the Believer”, puts forth both general and particular directions for the work itself. In other words, he gets his reader to consider their own sin so as to know their enemy. He also gets his read...

The Nature of Mortification

Last week we began a look at what it means to mortify one’s sin. Borrowing heavily from John Owen’s writings on the mortification of sin, I tried to highlight the necessity of it. In the words of Owen, if we are not actively killing sin, sin will be killing us....

A Call To Battle

Anyone who has been to Calvary Grace Church for any amount of time has hopefully realised by now, that we have a lot to say about sin. To be sure, we have much to say about grace as well, but you can’t fully appreciate grace until you’ve spent some time pondering sin. Unfortunately, people can fall victim to a morbid introspection where your sin is all you see and gr...

The Sure Hope of Good Friday

The people of Calgary and surrounding area have been shocked at the stabbings near the University of Calgary. We ought to pray for the families and friends of the victims. But what should we pray? How should we think about this tragedy? How should we talk about this horror with our friends and family? The stark reality of evil is staring us in the face once again this week...

Sobering Signposts

The other day we drove past a bunch of flowers set up in memorial by a light post at an intersection. One of our kids remarked that someone had died there. I remember seeing a show, but I forget where, that indicated that such displays are actually illegal. They break some city bylaw or other, but many times officials are lenient and allow the memorials to remain, at lea...

What Hath Aurora To Do With London? The False Promise of Human Ability

At more than 30 Olympic venues, an expected 11 million spectators will observe the events and marvel at the athlet...

Christmas Isn't an End in Itself

At Christmas, we celebrate the miracle of the Incarnation: the God of heaven and earth, the Lord of Hosts, Creator of all things, took on flesh. The Son of the Most High left behind the glories of heaven, leaving behind his exalted place with the Father, and descended to the earth to live among us....

Legalism Misidentifies the Enemy

Clint’s excellent sermon last week unpacked the question of Christian liberty versus the two “ditches” of legalism and license. In light of that theme, I can’t help looking at the column I read as something of a parable for sanctification. ...
