    A new study by Lifeway Research demonstrates how easily the discussion over universalism can become confused if we don't define our terms properly. For the study, Protestant pastors were asked to agree or disagree with the following statement: "If a person is sincerely seeking God, he/she can obtain eternal life through religions other than Christianity." Not surprisingly, 84% of pastors disagreed with the statement. (They didn't bother to mention how many pastors they actually surveyed.) In their commentary, Lifeway says that the view that people can find salvation through religions other than God, "... is generally called 'universalism' or

    All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

    Silence on the blog is usually a good indication I'm deeply involved in some aspect of the post-production process. These past few days it's been watching and re-watching the first 58 minutes of the film and then compiling a list of cuts and notes for my editor. Refining the cut is always an emotional process. Typically what I'll do is assemble a section and then send it off to Simon (editor) so he can do his magic. Whenever I hit the "send" button, it's usually with a feeling of elation, because I've finally nailed a segment that I've been struggling to

    It may be pointing at you! Why did I just buy three of these things, and what on earth do they have to do with Hellbound? Most of you will have to wait until the movie releases to find out. But a few fortunate people who happen to be in a particular place in Abbotsford at a particular time on a particular day in May will get a glimpse of the Big Red Finger in action as we do a final pick-up shoot for the film. Until then...

    Like many Evangelical Christians, I was raised under the idea that the central problem of humankind is sin. Our sinfulness doesn't just separate us from God and alienate us from each other and creation, it offends God so much he can't even stand to look at us. Hence the need for Jesus, whose death appeased God's wrath and put Jesus in a position to lobby on our behalf. Even though God still can't stand to look at us directly, if he looks at us through Jesus, everything will be okay. But if anyone rejects the solution Jesus offers, there'll literally

    "Man is a worm and food for worms. This is the paradox: he is out of nature and hopelessly in it; he is dual, up in the stars and yet housed in a heart-pumping, breath-gasping body that once belonged to a fish and still carries the gill-marks to prove it. His body is a material fleshy casing that is alien to him in many ways—the strangest and most repugnant way being that it aches and bleeds and will decay and die. Man is literally split in two: he has an awareness of his own splendid uniqueness in that he

    If you haven't read Andrew Sullivan's Newsweek essay Christianity in Crisis, take a few minutes to do so. It's well worth your time and effort. Especially when you consider it was written by a Christian--not some hypothetical left-winger with an axe to grind against the Church. Sullivan loves Jesus, the Bible and the Church. He just happens to think the Body of Christ is afflicted with a potentially life-threatening disease. Namely, a lust for power, which Sullivan correctly argues is a direct contradiction of the Gospel message. From the article:

    "Jesus’ doctrines were the practical commandments, the

    This is a photo of me taken in 1980, the year I became a Christian at Fishing Lake Bible Camp, located near my hometown of Foam Lake, Saskatchewan. And no, that is not a spelling error. I really grew up in a town called Foam Lake. At the time, my family was attending the United Church of Canada. One of the primary reasons for that was the man sitting in the chair. That's my grandpa, Rev. Wesley Robert Burnside Nixon. He was a minister throughout his adult life, served as a military chaplain during World War
