What does a kind husband look like?

Some thoughts on the lies that husbands can tell about God in the way they treat their wives, and five characteristics of a kind husband.

On costly grace…

Rachel Denhollander made news around the world for the words of condemnation and grace she offered at the trial of Larry Nassar, her abuser. In both instances she pointed Nassar to God: how he stands utterly condemned before a wrathful and just God who will mete out what Nassar deserves, but that should Nassar ever truly face and be crushed by the evil he has done, he can experience the grace and forgiveness of Jesus.

…and an inwardly blind Church

David Murray reflects on an aspect of the Rachel Denhollander account that didn’t receive much coverage – how she noted that her advocacy for sexually abused victims had the result that she “lost her church.” She argued that, due to poor theology, much of the conservative Christian church is not able to see the evil happening within its own doors.

Euthanasia decision raises question of the purpose behind health regulations

The government doesn’t allow just anyone to call themselves a doctor, and the reason for that regulative restriction was supposed to be safety – we don’t want just anyone performing surgery.

That’s why Fixer Upper stars Chip and Joanna Gaines encountered criticism when they announced they were pregnant with child #5. But as E. Calvin Beisner explains, this criticism is baseless for biblical and empirical reasons.

"Be Fruitful and Multiply" tour comes to Albertan April 19-22

Families are having fewer babies, and the world’s population is expected to peak and then decline later this century. The world isn’t prepared for the impact that this is going to have. However, what may be the greatest challenge of this century can also be a huge opportunity for the Church to shine…. if we embrace the blessing of children, and are prepared to raise them faithfully.

In this presentation, Reformed Perspective’s Mark Penninga will unpack data, history, and God’s Word to make the case for embracing the gift of children with open arms.

WHO IS THIS FOR?

Ages 16-116, single or married, children or no children, these presentations are suitable for all mature Christians.

WHEN AND WHERE?

Edmonton: April 19 at 7:30 pm at Immanuel Canadian Reformed Church

Barhead: April 20 at 7:30 pm at Emmanuel United Reformed Church

Ponoka: April 22 at 7:30 pm at Parkland Reformed Church
