There is a simple thing we can all do to stand in fellowship with those who suffer around the world: Pray!

Euthanasia and Bill C-407
This bill aims to legalize both euthanasia and assisted suicide. Should Christians be concerned? Does it really matter?

Sex, Teens and the Age of Consent
Kids as young as 12 can be engaged in some type of sexual practice, says a Globe columnist. Parents need to know the prevailing teen culture to help kids stay on the straight and narrow.

Spreading Hatred
Hate is always spread against "the other." Christians cannot be complacent that we are somehow exempt from hate.

Children Taught to Question Their Sexuality?
Certain school boards have introduced policy that asks teachers to "combat heterosexism." Many parents will object if their children are asked to question their sexuality.

Watergate to Adscam
We need to discern whether those who are running for office believe in anything, and whether they live what they believe. It is vital that we have and support leaders of integrity.

Religious Freedom Under Siege
Over and over Canadians are being reassured that Bill C-38 will protect religious freedom. But it doesn't and can't.

Terri's Tragedy
Could Terri's case happen in Canada? It already has.

A Tale of Two Conventions
It now appears that both parties are "election ready," with policies established and leaders endorsed, the question is: Are this country's Christians ready?

This Is Not My Canada
In the last two weeks we have opened our newspapers to one harrowing event after another. What is going on in our country?

If I Hear "Charter" One More Time …
All of us who believe that marriage is between a man and a woman better get off the proverbial bus. We are not welcome in this country anymore!

Marriage: An International Issue
The redefinition of marriage in Canada will have a global impact. Is it any wonder people in other countries are trying to influence the debate here?

The Spectre of Polygamy
If marriage is dubbed a right, and redefined to allow gays and lesbians to "marry" their partners, what is to stop others from making similar claims?
