    An Election Reflection

    Author Andrew Korevaar

    In the wake of a sweeping Liberal win, pro-lifers across Canada feel betrayed by the Canadian populace. A prime-minister that shamelessly denounces the humanity of the preborn and further prevents his MP’s from voting life now leads our nation. Feeling like a liar, I will sing the anthem this morning with my students, “The True North strong and free.” Clearly, the Liberal stance is anti-freedom, anti-choice, and anti-God. But yet, I read in 1 Peter 2:17, “Honour the king.” How can I really honour Justin Trudeau and his government with all of his self-destructive policies?

    The Reformed in today's society

    Author Jonathon Van Maren

    It should be obvious to any observer that the world we live in is becoming increasingly hostile to Christians. Many Christian views are now considered to be hate speech. Christian tax dollars are taken to dismember pre-born children in government-funded clinics. Christian schools, especially in Alberta in the wake of Bill 10, are now under threat of being forced to teach their children ideological beliefs that directly contradict biblical teachings on sexuality. The schools haven’t been forced to change their teaching yet—although the Catholic school system in Ontario has already knuckled under—but be assured that the day is coming where the government will try. Secular activists are not satisfied with having thoroughly infiltrated and rebuilt the public system. They want Christian schools, too.

    In the last decade, we’ve seen a moral revolution at warp speed. The culture has shifted so radically left on virtually every social issue that we’ve been left gasping—if we’ve even noticed.

    Intertwined

    Author Sharlene Nystrom

    A personal poem written by someone that has been adopted herself and speaks to the love and beauty of adoption for others. "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it unto Me." (Matt 25:40)

    Reality, too hard to embrace, stares her cruelly in the face.
    The room seems to spin, so many decisions, unsure where to begin.

    First love, stolen kisses, innocent fun, fast forwarded feels like life is coming undone.
    Amid a whirlwind of emotion, she clings to the security of his devotion.

    He holds her close and guides the way. The fragile new life begun is here to stay.
    Uncertainty doesn’t end here, past the point of going back, panic is near.

The Reformed Case for Pro-Life Action

Written by Jonathon Van Maren on Saturday, 26 November 2011.

We live in a culture where openly sinful behaviours are increasingly becoming the norm while opposing them is labelled “judgemental.” It is therefore good to consider whether or not those who hold to objective Christian principles are morally obligated to act out in defence of Christian beliefs. Of the many public sins that plague North America, abortion, the decapitation, dismemberment and disembowelment of unborn children throughout all nine months of pregnancy by the millions is undoubtedly the most horrific—and the most prevalent. (Example: At least 25 percent of unborn children are slaughtered every single year.)
