This year, 2015, marks a number of remarkable historic milestones, which we are using for Discipleship, teaching obedience to all things that the Lord has commanded. This year marks the 800th anniversary of the proclamation of Magna Carta, the first statute, the first written restriction on the powers of government. "To no one will we sell, to no one deny, or delay, right or justice." No taxes may be levied without the consent of representatives of those being taxed. No one may be imprisoned without a fair trial by Jury of their peers. Property must not be taken from any owner without just compensation. Religious freedom is foundational and must remain inviolable, with all "its rights undiminished and its liberties unimpaired."
God's Law or Chaos
Those who reject God and His Law have no objective basis for Justice. If one rejects Creation and the Law of the Creator, then social and moral chaos is inevitable. What does secular humanism offer us? "You came from nothing! You are going nowhere! Life is meaningless!" From goo to the zoo to you. From mud to monkeys to man. No ultimate standards of right and wrong. Situation ethics and relativism have led to the lawlessness tearing families and communities apart worldwide. We need to return to God's Law of Perfect Liberty.
Remember the Persecuted
Presentations on the 75th anniversary of the Katyn Forest Massacre have been prepared as well as on, the 100th anniversary of the Turkish Genocide of Armenian Christians, the 100th anniversary of the Sinking of the Lusitania, the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, and the 70th anniversary of the Dropping of the Atom Bombs. Each of these historic milestones, in different ways, offer us opportunities to Evangelise our neighbours and teach key Discipleship and Biblical worldview principles.
You will find a range of such articles on our www.ReformationSA.org website, also numerous of the lectures have already been place on SermonAudio.com page. Several of the PowerPoints are already on our Slideshare page.
