Does The Saviour Care?

by John Bain, Nova Scotia   Mark 12:14 “Master, we know that Thou art true, and carest for no man.” Luke 10:40 “Lord, dost Thou not care that my sister left me to serve alone?” Mark 4:38 “Master, carest Thou not that we perish?” 1 Peter 5:7 “Casting all your care upon him, for he careth for you.”       There may be times when we come to a point in our lives when we doubt our Saviour’s care.

Jesus Christ was considered to be the foundation of all knowledge. As the first code of Harvard laws stated in 1642, “…Let every Student be plainly instructed, and earnestly pressed to consider well, the maine end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life, and there

Our Therapeutic Society: "The United States of Crybabies"

     "The hyper-emotional reactions to Donald Trump's election occasioned much commentary about the state of America's millennials. On college campuses across the country there were "cry-ins," group "primal screams," and designated "healing spaces."...      "Critics derided these displays as the childish outbursts of pampered 'snowflakes.'  But such traumatized responses to the outcome of an election reflect a much larger cultural shift that has happened over many decades: the change from a tragic view of human life to a therapeutic one. This shift has troubling implications for our political and economic order.      "Until the nineteenth century, the tragic understanding of existence was dominant. The ancient Greeks invented a literary genre to express this belief. Like the flawed heroes of Greek tragedy, humans are defined by the permanent, unchanging conditions of life. They are hostages to time, sickness, want and
