TWU Denied Law School Accreditation

Well it is official, after years in the courts Trinity Western University has been denied Law School accreditation.
The basic reason is according to the Law Societies of Canada is that TWU's covenant prohibits sex outside heterosexual marriage by their students and faculty. Also the law societies says it is impossible for a Christian lawyer to represent their clients fairly.
The societies say the covenant amounts to discrimination.

I am not a big fan of TWU, however I commend them for not compromising on their covenant. Which to me is a no brainer for any organization that calls itself "Christian."
This ruling does not surprise me in this day and age; where in Alberta, a Christian couple were refused being able to adopt because they believe marriage should be between one man and one woman.

Yesterday at 01:13 AM Messianic Judaism [by John_C]
What is it precisely? I know they attempt to combine that Jesus Christ is the Messiah and Judaism, but how does it really work? Also, what is the history behind it? I have a cousin-in-law who attends a Messianic Judaism congregation, but no one in my family has asked about it. I kinda see it as being no worse than the typical UMC church which she attended before. My cousin, her husband, died a couple of years ago.

How do they view Jesus and the atonement, and what do they do with Galatians where Paul chastise the Judiazers?

Wed Jun 13, 2018 5:08 PM Doctrine and Philosophy [by Tom]
Trying to understand something that a pastor said to me during a rant.
(Not an exact quote)
"The problem with Christians today for the most part has nothing to do with essential doctrine. It has to do with philosophy. We should not be fighting over philosophy!"
Thoughts, comments, etc.. are welcomed.

Fri Jun 01, 2018 10:46 AM Are the Remonstrants Heretics? by R. Scott Clark [by Pilgrim]
Quote
This question comes over the transom regularly. I think most confessional Reformed pastors would probably say that, though they disagree strongly with Arminianism, it is not heresy. Somewhere I read (or heard) that William Ames (1576-1633), who served as an advisor at the Synod of Dort, regarded Arminianism as an error tending to heresy but not heresy itself. Whether Ames actually said that—he wrote treatises against the Remonstrants, which have not been translated—it all comes down to the definition of heresy.

Dr. R. Scott Clark is a professor at Westminster Seminary California. In this short but powerful article he examines the judgment of the Synod of Dordt (1618-19) which rejected the 5-point thesis of the Arminian Remonstrance and pronounced it heresy and those who embraced the Arminian doctrine heretics. In Part 1, he first defines the word "heresy", which is a biblical term and how it is used. In Part 2, he then examines where the doctrine and followers of Arminius fit in with the term "heresy/heretics". This article is a most refreshing antidote to the rampant spread of what is currently called, "Tolerant Calvinism" throughout the Reformed churches.

You can read this month's article here: Are the Remonstrants Heretics?

In His service and grace,

The PCA's Slide Into the Homosexual Abyss Accelerates
By Dr. Paul M. Elliott

http://www.teachingtheword.org/apps/articles/?view=post&columnid=5449&articleid=194818

There are some valuable links at the bottom of this article that relate to the PCA’s road to its logical downfall if God doesn’t have mercy on that denomination and move them to repent and return to orthodoxy.

What are your thoughts on this new development in the PCA?
