Sexuality

But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity.…” – Ephesians 5:3

Sexuality is a gift from God, to be used for His glory. Of all gifts, perhaps this one has been the most misused and perverted since the Fall into sin. This is apparent in the way that our Parliament and courts have dealt with sexuality as well. We have an obligation to show the world what a blessing sexuality can be when it is used in conformity with God’s intentions – lovingly between one man and one woman who are committed to each other for life in marriage.

09 Jul 2008 Be faithful. Stay alive

By Barbara Kay - National Post - July 9, 2008More money continues to be spent on HIV/AIDS - a terrible but preventable scourge - than any other disease in history. Billions. Much of it is wasted though, because control of the HIV/ AIDS industry is in the hands of liberal NGOs and medical experts who cut their battle strategies to fit their ideological cloths. In a National Post column published on Monday, Michael Fumento, a public intellectual specialising in health issues, lamented the...

10 Jun 2008 Alberta Pastor Fined $7000 and Ordered to Publicly Apologize and Remain Silent on Homosexuality

Says he won't apologize - "I stand by what I said." Will appeal decision.By Tim Waggoner [Lifesitenews.com] OTTAWA, June 9, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - On Friday, the Alberta Human Rights Commission ordered Alberta pastor Stephen Boissoin to desist from expressing his views on homosexuality in any sort of public forum. He was also commanded to pay damages equivalent to $7,000 as a result of the tribunal's November decision to side with complainant and homosexual activist Dr. Darren Lund. The tribunal has also called for Boissoin to personally apologize to Lund via a public statement in the local newspaper. The remedy order demands the pastor to pay $5,000 to Lund personally for the "time and energy" he has expended and for the "ridicule and harassment" he has faced. Combined with that financial burden, Boissoin must also pay up to $2,000 in expenses to one of Lund's witness, provided she produces records of such costs.

10 Jan 2008 Children among the rubble: Sexual liberation hurts kids

by Michael Wagner *  Fire plays an important role in people’s lives, both for good and ill. It helps to heat homes in the winter, but if things go wrong it can also burn those homes down. In its proper place it fills an essential function, but out of place it becomes destructive and even deadly. The usefulness or dangerousness of fire depends on whether or not it is under control. Similarly, sexuality can be very beneficial and creative, or on the other hand rather destructive. It’s socially beneficial to the degree it’s used according to the rules stipulated by God in His Word. Within marriage sex leads to the existence of a godly seed and the strengthening of the bond between the husband and wife. A new generation of children emerges supported by the adults who care for them and each other. This is the pattern of family life that leads to human flourishing and wellbeing.

19 Oct 2007 “Conduct Unbecoming”: Chris Kempling and the BCCT

By George Gunnink (Surrey/Cloverdale ARPA)The freedom to express and promote a Christian worldview is being challenged on many fronts in our nation. In particular, this freedom has been challenged by the homosexual community, which is not interested in hearing any opposition to its sinful lifestyle. A story involving the BC College of Teachers (BCCT, the regulatory body responsible for monitoring the performance and conduct of school teachers) is just one example of the homosexual agenda at work in government and regulatory bodies.

19 Oct 2007 Child Pornography: A Look at the John Robyn Sharpe Trial

By Darren Leyenhorst (Surrey/Cloverdale ARPA), June 2002When I look at my children and see their innocence it is hard for me not to get angry at the ruling in the recent John Robin Sharpe case. I won’t get into the gross details (it would make your stomach turn) so suffice it to say that Mr. Sharpe produced pornographic writings which contained descriptions of sexual acts with boys and men. That his written material is considered by some members of society to be writings with “artistic merit” makes me wonder if our society is striving to be the next Sodom and Gomorrah.
