I’m concerned that Christians are taking Christians to court. This is not God’s
way. But I suppose if the allegations are
true, then it’s necessary.

Evangelical leaders needed
Re: The Three Active Arms of Canada’s Pro-Life Movement (May/Jun 2016)
WE WERE delighted to see such a wide-ranging article explaining the various
aspects of pro-life organizations.
Last May we attended the pro-life rally
in Ottawa where 25,000 Canadians
showed their support for this worthy
cause. While there were some Evangelicals represented in the large crowd, we
were dismayed that there was no one
representing us on the stage set up in
front of the Parliament Buildings. There
were some evangelical politicians (who
pay a price for their stand), but no one
representing even one evangelical church.
We are hoping for more evangelical leaders in the future.
Let us all stand and speak for these tiny
little babies who are being slaughtered
by the thousands. We must. God has

Re: The Gathering Place (May/Jun 2016)
THANKS TO Bruce Clemenger for his
comments on this issue.
A new commandment is being unfurled
over Canada – “Thou shalt kill.” As the
Church awakens and takes a stand against
this terrifying new reality, we need to arm
ourselves with our Lord’s words, not only
“Thou shalt not kill,” but also Matthew 25:
31–46. The passage doesn’t say, “I was sick
and you killed me.” Whatever we do to the
sick, we do to the Lord Himself.
Woe to the Church if we compromise
on this issue and approve of the killing of
even one person.
