Bill C-10: Canada’s Internet Censorship Bill
Are our fundamental freedoms are subject to the rule of law?
Bill C-10 isn’t about protecting Canadian content online, it’s about restricting content Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party do not approve of—it’s about restricting conservative and Christian content online. Yesterday, a judge ruled that James Coates’ rights and freedoms were not infringed on when the government of Alberta arrested and imprisoned him for over... Continue Reading
Banning Critical Race Theory?
The only way to fight bad ideas is with better ones.
While threats and intimidation have no place and teachers need legal protection from legalized bullying, to simply counter-censor bad ideas is to fail students. Not only do we risk teaching them not to think for themselves, we undermine their confidence that truth can be known and defended. A video that made the rounds on... Continue Reading
My Woke Employees Tried to Cancel Me. Here’s How I Fought Back and Saved My Nonprofit.
After years of serving victims of trauma, Grace Daniel and her husband came under attack by employees who embraced "woke" ideology. Instead of letting their organization flounder, Grace fought back.
I am convinced that critical social justice can and will be defeated ultimately for the sole reason that it’s so fundamentally misaligned with reality. However, the tragic truth is that much collateral damage is being done to individuals and institutions where this ideology has already taken root. The more people who decide to take a...

Marxism and Racism: The Issue Is Never the Issue
The great task before us is to realize that the godless cosmology of cultural Marxism, seducing the rising generations, is the latest form of a powerful and political pagan Oneism.
Certainly, every person must constantly check his or her heart as to the presence of racism—for all kinds of races, by all kinds of races. Christians, however, must be resolutely aware in this day and age of the great challenge before us in the rising forces of ideological Marxism, which pursues “the forcible overthrow of...

The Lord’s Supper Is Not Penance
To believers the Supper means that we unconditionally received. It means that Christ is with us and for us, that we are united to him and he communes with us.
He said, “This is my body.” We are to receive it as such and we are fed by it because it is his body. We confess, “This banquet is a spiritual table at which Christ communicates himself to us with all his benefits. At that table he makes us enjoy himself as much as the merits of his suffering and death, as he nourishes,... Continue Reading
John Bertram Phillips – A Bruised Reed Firmly Planted
Through this rise to success and fame, J. B. Phillips lived with a clinical and often debilitating form of depression and anxiety.
The contrast between the torment J. B. Phillips revealed in some of his most intimate confessions and the exciting and joyous discovery and proclamation of God’s nature, works and revelation that he expressed in the majority of his writings is not a contradiction. It’s only a manifestation of what all Christians experience, in varying degrees... Continue Reading
In Christ All Sinners Are Truly Made New.
Celibacy is in itself no virtue, or aid in denying or overcoming sin. Denial of the desires of the flesh may serve good or evil, tending to confirm the practitioner in one or the other, according to what kind of person he is. Celibacy may be of great value in the life of a penitent—someone... Continue Reading
Gender Dysphoria: A Growing Concern Among Children and Teens
Gender dysphoria is historically rare, but is now spreading like a social contagion.
Here is what gender ideologues do not tell you: if a confused child is simply left to grow up on her own, she will eventually become comfortable in her own body 80-95% of the time. Our children do not need chemicals and surgery. What they need is our patience and kindness. As some may... Continue Reading
The Poison of Suspicion in the Life of the Church
If a church faithfully loves one another, suspicion flies out the back door.
I fear that we are not doing enough in our churches to curb the growth of suspicion. The poison of suspicion can only be drawn out by love. And that means we need to be preaching on, thinking about and living out love in our own lives. Erasing suspicion starts with you, not your neighbour.... Continue Reading
When Critical Theory Took on Race
The connections between Critical Race Theory and its philosophical parent Critical Theory.
A thorough reading of the historical development of both philosophical disciplines reveals a genealogy that is closer than simple intellectual similarities. Introduction Critical Race Theory (CRT) has been gaining traction in organizations throughout the Western world for over 50 years, but increasingly so for the past 5 years leading up to 2021. It is... Continue Reading
