Truth In A Truthless Age

I just saw over on James White’s site that he and some other great speakers are going to be holding a conference in Toronto later this year (September 10, 11). The speakers will be:

  • James White – I read his blog every couple of days and greatly admire him as a theologian. Sometimes his sarcasm gets a bit out of hand, but I’m willing to overlook it because of his stand for truth!
  • Richard Ganz – Richard is a good family friend and I always enjoy listening to him speak. A while back we celebrated Lord’s Supper at his church in Ottawa and he recited some of the words in Hebrew (Rich is Jewish by birth) and it gave a really neat “authenticity” to the sacrament.
  • Stephen Beck – I’ve heard him preach a couple of times but don’t know all that much about him. I think my parents are quite fond of him, though.

So I’m excited! It should be a great conference. I’m particularly interested in hearing a Reformed perspective on witnessing to post-moderns (a seminar presented by Stephen Beck) as well as the seminar on Witnessing to Catholics presented by White.

If you’re in the Toronto area and want to attend, you can get the basic information here.

    Can I confess something to you? There’s one thing Aileen does that really bugs me. We will be talking together and enjoying one another’s company. But then, as we chat, I’ll hear the telltale buzz of her phone. And I can tell that I’ve lost her. I can see it in the look on her…

    A Difference-Making Ministry for Any Christian

    The experience of preaching is very different from the front than from the back, when facing the congregation than when facing the preacher. The congregation faces one man who is doing his utmost to be engaging, to hold their attention, and to apply truths that will impact their hearts and transform their lives.

    Why Those Who Seem Most Likely to Come, Never Come At All

    It is something we have all observed at one time or another and something we have all wondered about. Why is it that those who seem most likely to come to Christ so often reject him? Why is it that those hear the boldest invitations and who have the greatest opportunities so commonly turn away?…
