MrBeast video shows the self-serving nature of democracy when it is unrestrained by Christianity

George W. Bush tried to export democracy to the Middle East, seemingly seeing it as a good all in itself. But Christians need to understand that democracy only worked as well as it has because it’s been tried in countries that were largely Christian. A godless mob will elect godless rule.

Comparing COVID-era deaths across countries

While I’ve forgotten a lot of the “Science” presented during COVID, one thing that’s stuck was the many predictions of how terribly Sweden would do, since it wasn’t locking down like the rest of the world.

Now the BBC is reporting on “average death rates from March 2020 to February 2023 compared with the five years before.” The table below doesn’t count deaths attributed specifically to COVID, but instead compares all the deaths in a year to the rate at which death was happening the five years before. And by that measure Sweden did spectacularly, and better than all but one of the ten countries considered. It is, of course, an apples to oranges comparison as no two countries have the same demographics, living arrangements, and lifestyles. But it is still the very opposite of what was predicted.

"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.
