It is hard to know the truth in our worldas it can be distorted. There is fake news, disinformation, misinformation and sometimes we just don’t know the truth because we haven’t listened well.
Ideally, when we hear something new, we should stop and investigate the source. All the stories in this magazine reference the Bible –the source of truth. We want you to see clearly and not a distortion.
There are a few key pieces of information that we hope the articles in this magazine will help you to see clearly.
- We want you to know the truth that God’s love is serious. He wants you! God sees us: He sees our actions, our words and our thoughts but He still loves us. He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to be the ‘Bridge to Life’ for us.
- We have a responsibility before God. He wants to have a relationship with you. He has given His Son to take care of the burden of your sin so that there is no impediment to that relationship. The Bible says that God is, “not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).
- We want you to be sure that you have the real thing and not just a façade of being a Christian. Do you see a definite time that you were adopted into God’s family?
- We want to know what is true. Frightening events scroll across our screens and spill into our lives. But we don’t need to fear. The One who sees all things clearly,holds the future in His hands.
- We want you to know that God makes all the difference in each situation we face.
Hopefully you find spiritual helpinreading this magazine. If you have any unanswered questions,be sure to write to us. We will do our best to answer clearly

My Testimony – Anderson Hernandez
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life” (John 5:24).
With the words of this Bible verse ringing in my ears, I was saved on January 23, 1995. I found pardon for my sins by faith in the work at Calvary. But how did I arrive at this point in my story?
Choose your cruise
Have you ever thought of taking a cruise?
Suppose a travel agent offered you the opportunity to take the cruise of a lifetime — with the following choices: …
Have you ever looked in a fun house mirror? It can be entertaining to stare at
your reflection (or someone else’s!) and laugh at how it makes you look unnaturally tall and thin. Then you go to the next mirror, and you look like someone has tried to flatten you. A curve in the glass turns the reflection into a crazy version of reality.
Queen Elizabeth II
Our greatly esteemed Queen Elizabeth has passed from time into eternity. She will be remembered for her loyalty to her country, her commitment to her vows, her stoicism in the face of personal loss and hardship and her untiring service as our longest serving monarch...
Just when it seems that things might start to get better, another catastrophe strikes. How should we react to all these events? Will things keep getting worse?
DON’T BE SURPRISED …
Just a false front
This little church sits nestled under the trees in the beautiful Minter Gardens near Chilliwack, British Columbia. Recently, while visiting the gardens, we thought we would go into the church for a few moments of peace and solitude. To our great surprise, when we tried to enter, we found that it was just a façade. There was no building at all, but merely a false front…
God’s love in every colour
When God created you, He gave you the ability to be creative. Whether you draw, make music, or build things, your creativity shows that you are special. As you explore the world God created, you’ll find that He used all the colours to make a beautiful home we can enjoy.
Just as you are
Have you thought that you might be happier if you had different colored eyes, or if you were a different height or weight? Perhaps you’ve wished that you had perfect eyesight, that you did not have diabetes, or that you could walk without the aid of crutches or a wheelchair.
I was adopted twice
The three men had been drinking heavily and partying all night. Now, as their car approached the intersection where they needed to turn toward home, the effects of too much alcohol caught up with them. By the time they saw the other car…
Do you carry baggage?
Have you ever been to an airport and watched people with their luggage? They are weighed down. Some really struggle – pushing carts with four or five cases piled up, or pulling one big suitcase with other bags strapped over their shoulders…
Death under the bridge
It was evening in the great city of Guadalajara, Mexico when my brother eased our van to a halt on the six-lane perimeter highway. Soon we saw the reason for the stopped traffic: an ambulance, and a form lying still on the asphalt, covered by a sheet. The young man had tried to run…
Wishing you the very best
The best things in life still come without a price tag. A millionaire can’t write a cheque for happiness. A celebrity can’t buy peace of mind with her credit card. Even a king can’t order his subjects to love him.
