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.

  • Do Not Envy the Wicked

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God. The man who quits drugs will still react when he catches a whiff and the woman who gave up alcoholism will still struggle when…
