EVANGELICALS: AMERICANS AND CANADIANS
Canadians, comparing ourselves to our American neighbours is our
second most popular national sport — after hockey, of
course. Though we may suffer from an unfortunate tendency toward
self-congratulation when making these comparisons, they can also
prove instructive for parties on both sides of the forty-ninth
between Canadian and American evangelicals don't escape this
general rule. The danger of easy stereotypes is definitely
present: Canadians gazing south, for example, can fall into the
trap of assuming that the pictures of American evangelicals served
up by the media — late-night televangelists, sketchy
celebrity pastors, or political commentators with foot-in-mouth
disease — provide a balanced picture of the movement as a
this danger, cross-border comparisons are necessary and
inevitable, especially for those whose work involves dealing with
evangelical communities in both countries. But because of this
danger, such comparisons must be based on a sober assessment of
reliable information. Thanks to careful research by sociologists
and historians, such an assessment is within our grasp.

LIE MORE THAN WE THINK. AND THAT'S PART OF THE PROBLEM.
person on the planet at times is an Oscar-winning liar. Haven't we
all lied without being caught? As the Bible says, "There is
no one righteous, not even one.... Their throats are open graves;
their tongues practice deceit" (Rom. 3:10-13). My husband and
I, aware of this reality, have made a pact. If either of us lies
to the other, we are committed to confessing the lie within three
my most common lie is to tell myself I can do things in less time
than I actually can. And lying to myself in this way sets me up to
lie to others. How many times have I told my husband that I would
arrive at a certain time and place when in my heart I wasn't
genuinely committed to following through on my word? I told him
that I'd be there, but I wasn't. My husband has learned not to
trust me, because my actions don't always line up with my
words.... Read this in full at
TO HEAR A GOOD VOICE
don't know about you, but the voices in my head can ruin a
perfectly good weekend. It does not take much. A competitor gets
an edge, and I play over and over the moment when I missed my
opportunity. My wife and I may have an argument, or someone says
something I can't let go of, or I worry about what someone may
think regarding something I did or said, so I dive into the pool
of voices until I nearly drown in their pity, their anxiety, their
fear, their accusations, and their conceit. The voices can make a
man miss a bluebird sky, a smile, or the tug of his son's hand
begging him to ‘come play with me.’ The voices prove
constantly the need to ‘be still, and know that I am God’
and to ‘let not your hearts be troubled.’
be healthy in your relationships with God and with people, learn
to distinguish good voices from bad so you can reject those that
repeat only worn-out lies from the enemy of your soul. If you
listen to lies from the past and the present, or even lies you
tell yourself, stop it. Commit from this day forward to accept
only truth. You have to commit to live in truth, to love it, and
to follow it wherever it leads. I hear the good and familiar voice
of my son reminding me, ‘Truth is enough.’ Being a
man, the kind of man you respect, begins with accepting the truth
about yourself, and then moving forward.
all this sounds right to you, but you are weak in faith, the
Scriptures teach us that ‘faith comes from hearing, and
hearing through the word of Christ’ [Romans 10:17]. Listen
to the one and only Voice who can ever help you hear. Start by
hearing God's Word. Read the Scriptures aloud to yourself
everyday. It is impossible to remain weak in your faith if your
heart, soul, and mind are hearing the Word of God and if you are
daily asking God by his power to reveal his truth to your heart
and mind. Ask him to help you every five minutes, if that's what
it takes to come to understand and accept his grace and goodness.
In other words, make accepting truth by faith your number one

ART OF DYING
culture simply doesn't know what to think about death. Through
medicine and science we know more about death and how to forestall
it than ever before. Yet we know very little about caring for a
dying person. We don't know what to expect or how to prepare for
our own death. And we're often awkward at best when trying to
comfort a friend in grief.
culture is fighting, and sometimes succeeding, to expand the
so-called right to die. We hear stories of the compassion of
family members and doctors who assist in the deaths of terminally
ill patients. Yet our doctors and hospitals are astounding in
their ability and passionate desire to rescue cancer sufferers,
accident victims, or heart-attack patients. We have come to expect
medical breakthroughs, vaccines, and wonder-working drugs.
is no shortage of books, studies, and experts ready to explain our
culture's fear of death or our eagerness to avoid it. Yet some of
our bestsellers — Tuesdays with Morrie, The Last Lecture, 90
Minutes in Heaven — feature stories about people dying, or
nearly so, and the lessons they discovered at the end of life.
Celebrities give a whole society the opportunity to follow along
in the struggle with a terminal disease and publicly, at least on
TV, mourn their deaths.... Read this in full at
STEPHEN HAWKING DOESN’T UNDERSTAND ABOUT HEAVEN
depressing to see Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant minds
in his field, trying to speak as an expert on things he sadly
seems to know rather less about than many averagely intelligent
Christians. Of course there are people who think of ‘heaven’
as a kind of pie-in-the-sky dream of an afterlife to make the
thought of dying less awful. No doubt that’s a problem as
old as the human race. But in the Bible ‘heaven’ isn’t
‘the place where people go when they die.’ In the
Bible heaven is God’s space while earth (or, if you like,
‘the cosmos’ or ‘creation’) is our space.
And the Bible makes it clear that the two overlap and interlock.
For the ancient Jews, the place where this happened was the
temple; for the Christians, the place where this happened was
Jesus himself, and then, astonishingly, the persons of Christians
because they, too, were ‘temples’ of God’s own
is working with a very low-grade and sub-biblical view of ‘going
to heaven.’ Of course, if faced with the fully Christian
two-stage view of what happens after death -- first, a time ‘with
Christ’ in ‘heaven’ or ‘paradise,’and
then, when God renews the whole creation, bodily resurrection --
he would no doubt dismiss that as incredible. But I wonder if he
has ever even stopped to look properly, with his high-octane
intellect, at the evidence for Jesus and the resurrection? I doubt
it -- most people in England haven’t. Until he has, his
opinion about all this is worth about the same as mine on nuclear
physics, i.e. not much.... Read this in full at
TO FORGET ABOUT BEING HUMBLE
are shaped by what we love. Noticing the inherent beauty of a
thing is the first step in organizing our thoughts and actions
around it. Loving humility, admiring it and longing for it are
what kick-starts the process of being transformed by it. Let me
offer an analogy. In my music career I never deliberately set out
to sing in the style of Bono from U2. (A quick listen to my songs
will reveal that I never quite attained it either.) But that
Irishman's lilt and passion, light and shade, left their obvious
marks on both my songwriting and vocal approach. I was shaped by
what I admired.
second thought relates to the first. Reflect on the lives of the
humble. If we are shaped by what we admire, finding admirable
examples and studying them will go a long way toward forming
humility in us. I trust most readers will be able to think of a
few people around them who hold their power for the good of others
before themselves. My suggestion is that you watch them closely,
talk to them about their decisions and try to emulate them.
forget about being humble. C. S. Lewis, the famous Oxford don and
author of The Chronicles of Narnia [insisted] that humility is
quite unlike the property of, for example, having brown hair. It
is not something you especially notice in others. You don't
suddenly meet someone and think, ‘Wow! What dazzling
humility!’ It is a rather low-key virtue. It often takes a
while to spot in others, partly because the truly humble person is
not at all concerned about appearing humble. He is not thinking of
himself at all.”

to Life, Love, and Leadership
END TIMES THEORIES SHAPE THE WAYS WE VIEW OUR EARTHLY ABODE
travel from time to time. Unfortunately, this requires sleeping in
hotel rooms. My last hotel stay had me pondering the differences
between a hotel room and my own home. The "hospitality"
industry specializes in the sterile and generic. I can hope for
little more than clean sheets, hot water, and maybe a coffee
machine. Even luxury hotels, despite elegant fixtures and
expensive amenities, are designed for standardized guests. Any art
on the walls is mass-produced.
hotel room is the same as another. But my house, with all its
quirks, is a home: a long-term habitat, a place of relationships
and authentic hospitality. I don't feel like a guest. Indeed, even
my guests shouldn't feel like guests, but like family.
these reasons, I treat a hotel room much differently than my home.
I don't trash hotel rooms, but neither am I invested in them. I
wouldn't spend any money to redecorate the walls or to fix a
broken drain in the tub. But I'm always thinking about maintaining
and improving my home: adding new art or furniture, modifying
rooms, installing a screen porch, redesigning a kitchen —
and, of course, fixing what breaks. Because I am committed to my
home, my attitude is fundamentally different.... Read this in full
WOULD YOU SEE THROUGH GENEROUS EYES?
Word gives us a simple but awesome promise: ‘He who has a
generous eye will be blessed’ (Prov. 22:9 NKJV). What would
you see if you looked at the world through generous eyes? Going
through your daily life, you might notice needs that escape other
people, or identify places where you alone are capable of giving
what's needed. Seeing with generous eyes would color your thinking
who can I bless in this present situation?’
do I have that I could use to make a difference?’
is the need here - and what can I do to meet it?’
enough, the more we give away, the richer we become.We're promised
a blessing when we have a generous eye. But what exactly does this
mean? I'm not suggesting that when you give a hundred dollars
somewhere, you're going to get back a hundred dollars (or more)
somewhere else. Certainly, this can happen, but it's not the
point. This truth is not an investment strategy for manipulating
God like you'd play the stock market. We're promised a blessing if
we give generously, not a big payback. Not all the blessings of
God have to do with money; instead, they may be riches of the
Spirit - peace, joy, patience - or gifts that money can't buy (a
spouse, kids, forgiveness, respect, a job you love). In God's
economy, you may even harvest a crop in places where you didn't
plant seed. Giving generously changes you. It frees you up,
undermines the power that money and possessions can have over you,
and it makes you more like him.”

FOR C.S. LEWIS COLLEGE?
weekend, I will be driving with my wife and son out to the campus
of what will become C.S. Lewis College. Sited on what was formerly
the Northfield Seminary, founded by D.L. Moody in 1879, this
beautiful property, with its handsome buildings and rich history,
is currently in the process of being restored. Wherever one walks
on its hillsides, the skill of dedicated artisans and contractors
is everywhere in evidence.

of hope. A campus shuttered for many years is being reborn. The
legacies of D.L. Moody and C.S. Lewis have come together, and will

AND THE MARRIED AMERICAN
W. Bradford Wilcox
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver both attended Mass at St.
Monica’s Church in Santa Monica, California. But this time,
they came alone, not together, as has been their usual pattern.
Before Shriver learned of Schwarzenegger’s infidelity
earlier this year, the couple and their four children were known
to be frequent churchgoers at St. Monica’s.
marital misbehavior of Schwarzenegger, a Roman Catholic, not to
mention evangelical Protestants such as John Ensign and Mark
Sanford, however, should not be mistaken for the norm among
married men in America today, and especially for married men who
are regular churchgoers. Although the institution of marriage in
the United States has fallen on hard times in recent years —
for instance, the marriage rate has dropped in half since 1970,
even as the percentage of babies being born outside of wedlock
more than tripled over the same time period — one surprising
bright spot when it comes to married life in America is that
sexual fidelity seems to be on the upswing.
to research by the National Marriage Project at the University of
Virginia, Americans have become less tolerant of marital
infidelity over the last 40 years, and somewhat less likely to
stray over the last 20 years. For instance, in the 1970s, 63% of
men and 73% of women said marital infidelity is “always
wrong.” In the 2000s, 78% of men and 84% of women said that
marital infidelity is “always wrong.” .... Read this

LION KING,' 'BEAUTY AND THE BEAST' ANIMATOR GAVE UP SIX-FIGURE JOB

treasures on earth are temporary, but the treasures stored in

SHATTER TABOOS IN TALKING ABOUT MONEY
sooner had 29-year-old Graham Messier joined a small group at his
church earlier this year than he found himself breaking an
American taboo: talking about how much he earns, and where it all
in the group did likewise as they kicked off an eight-week program
aimed at reconciling personal finances with Christian rhetoric
about economic justice. It’s countercultural, they said, but
the eighth meeting, Messier’s group had raised $1,800 for
three non-profits simply by cutting back on gourmet coffees,
dining out and other non-essentials.
about household budgets isn’t “the most comfortable
thing in the world,” Messier said. “But talking as
Christians about the reality of our money situations should be
more of a focus than it is generally if we’re going to be
real about loving, giving to the poor and taking care of our
inception in 2006, the Lazarus at the Gate curriculum has guided
some 400 people in more than 30 groups to give away a total of

Americans rank among the world’s richest 5 percent—and
that a few dollars go a lot farther in the developing world than

prosperity is no sign of the special love of heaven; nor are
sorrow and care any mark of God's disfavor, but the reverse. God's
love is robust and true and eager- not for our own comfort, but
for our lasting blessedness.”
F. B. Meyer
love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Some have wandered
away from the faith and have impaled themselves with a lot of pain
because they made money their goal. But as for you, man of God,
run away from all these things. Instead, pursue righteousness,
holy living, faithfulness, love, endurance, and gentleness.
Compete in the good fight of faith. Grab hold of eternal life —
you were called to it, and you made a good confession of it in the
presence of many witnesses.”

used to think that I needed to get all my motives straightened out
before I could pray, really pray. I would be in some prayer group,
for example, and I would examine what I had just prayed and think
to myself, "How utterly foolish and self-centered; I can't
pray this way!" And so I would determine never to pray again
until my motives were pure. You understand, I did not want to be a
hypocrite. I knew that God is holy and righteous. I knew that
prayer is no magic incantation. I knew that I must not use God for
my own ends. But the practical effect of all this internal
soul-searching was to completely paralyze my ability to pray.”
