Some cultures are ahead of the United States in terms of their secularism, and it is instructive to observe the progression. We discussed how Ireland recently voted to remove right-to-life protections for the preborn, but now, merely 2 weeks later, the tide has turned from simply legalizing abortion to now mandating it for hospitals, including Catholic ones. Also, Canada’s Supreme Court has ruled in favour of denying accreditation to a law school that requires students to sign a commitment in support of the biblical view of sexuality.
Our guest today was Matthew Everhard, Pastor of Faith Evangelical Presbyterian Church, and author of A Theology of Joy: Jonathan Edwards and Eternal Happiness in the Holy Trinity. His personal journey led him to a thorough study of Edwards’ writings about the foundation and source for real joy.
