Washington gave a warning to America

Whitefox_AvatarRay: Listen to this very powerful message regarding the United States current drive toward eliminating all reference to God in the public square. The same warning should be headed in Canada and by all nations for that matter. (Follow the link as I was unable to get the video to embed in this website.)

As always we would like to know what is your opinion. Please make your comments here.

WASHINGTON – The prophetic words delivered in 1789 by President George Washington in his first inaugural speech echoed loud and clear Wednesday evening in the chamber of the U.S. Capitol’s Statuary Hall – this time in the voice of Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of the best-selling “The Harbinger.”

The Decline and Fall of Canada

picture-3552Ray: Recently I read glowing reports about how Canada has increased its financial stature when compared to other Countries in the World. I found this odd that we are congratulating ourselves when I know for example that since 2008 we have gone from 470 Billion in National Debt to 600 Billion in debt. An increase of 28%. Also we have more unemployment in the private sector than we did in 2008 (In Ontario at least). Before you buy into the glowing financial position that we are told that we are in, I recommend you view this video which gives you a contrarian view of our economy today as presented by Stefan Molyneaux of http://www.freedomradio.com.

Rob Ford, mayor of Toronto confesses

picture-3552Ray: Rob Ford said at the end of his “confession” message when he confessed publicly that he had taken crack cocaine and that he has a problem with drug addiction (meaning alcohol, the legal drug) that he wished God to Bless Toronto to which there was a roar of scoffing laughs by the sceptic journalists. Later in an interview Rob said that it was like having a “born again” experience having confessed his sin publicly. I ask Rob if he reads this to talk to God about his confessions and to seek His forgiveness and reconciliation. God can give him the real thing a true born again experience. A repentance that is not to be repented of as 2 Corinthians 5 describes it and best of all Rob can have the indwelling presence of God the Holy Spirit in his life forever and as he obeys God’s word he can manifest the son (Jesus the Christ) and the God the father in his life according to John 14. Anything of this world pales in significance to this encounter that Rob and others who read this can have with God in their lives.

Keep Sharia Law out of Western Nations

picture-3552Ray: This is a video I found on the internet. The author of this video is Dr. Johnathon Matusits. I welcome all to comment. Especially if you a are a Muslim and you would like to counter this mans view of Islam.

This fellow raises the issue of Polygamy. I am told there are over 100 polygamous Muslim families in Toronto.

This fellow raises the issue of the secularization of the West. The west has to a large extent rejected Christianity.

He did not say this, I say this following statement. The result has been a lowering of moral standards which causes moral degradation. It is our lack of morals in other areas such as the genocide of our unborn that causes Islam to see the imposition of Sharia as a solution to raise the moral standard of our society. Christians in my opinion who are to be the salt of the earth must stand up stronger to protect Judeo / Christian Godly morals in our society. If they do not the void will eventually be filled with foreign laws. God has often used foreigners to chastise the Jew in the past into obedience of His laws. God I believe is allowing the west to be chastised by foreign laws and peoples bringing us their form of moral codes.

Deuteronomy 31 – 16 And the Lord said unto Moses, “Behold, you shall sleep with your fathers; and these people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the foreigners of the land, to which they go to be among them, and will forsake Me, and break My covenant which I have made with them. 17 Then My anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide My face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall (find) them; so that they will say in that day, ‘Are not these evil come upon us because our God is not among us?’ 18 And I will surely hide My face in that day for all the evils which they shall have worked, in that they are turned unto other gods. – SKJV (Simplified King James Version)

Allah is not just another name for God, Allah is a foreign god. Sharia is not Judeo Christian it is diametrically opposed in many ways to Judeo Christian law which the west has been established upon.

There are three religions currently at play in the west. The largest religion currently is Secular Humanism, The second one is Christianity and now we have Islam raising its head. If you are a secular humanist then you would like to see all other Gods Allah or the God of the Bible eradicated in western thought and laws. The void however you would like to create is making room for the foreign god Allah.

A Radio Chat with Ray & Brad in 2010

picture-3552 Ray: We have been quiet at this blog. We hope at some point to increase our activity. I thought I would post a radio show that was aired on Blog Talk radio in 2010. Brad and I met in 2008 when I ran in the Canadian Federal Election as a candidate for the Newmarket-Aurora riding, representing the Christian Heritage Party of Canada. Brad interviewed me on a local Newmarket Radio station and on Internet radio several times over the following two years. (We have lost our archives of most of these interviews.) It was after this last radio show that Brad and I began to talk about sharing a blog site to present some of the things that we discussed on his show.

We spoke about a book which tells the truth about global warming in that program by an author named Glenn McKerron.  We hope to have Glenn on our YouTube show soon to revisit the topic of Global Warming.

Ugandan president repents of personal, national sins

Ray: I am reposting this blog article as it relates to religion. In that one of the things being confessed is the adherence to secularism. Yes Secularism is a religion. The term “Secular Humanism” was first coined in the early 20th century. You may wish to read the “Secular Humanist Manifesto” at some point. It is a filled with the statements “We believe…”. One of those beliefs stated is in the philosophy called Evolution (It’s not a science). God says there are only 2 religions. One is the religion of recognizing Him and more specifically His only begotten Son as God and creator. The other religion is the religion of man. I also include this article because contrary to public opinion, politicians do influence and legislate morality. That is why religious beliefs are an important factor in how we are led as a nation (in whichever nation you are in.)

The Bible says “lean not unto your own understanding.” The ills of mankind all stem from attempts to lean on our own understanding and our rejection of God. It is refreshing to find that a politician is willing to confess the sins of himself and his country. If only more politicians would do this perhaps God would heal our land (In each of our respective countries) as He promises to do if we confess our sin.

2 Chronicles 7 – 14 if my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Watch now to see what great things begin to happen in that country. Now is a good time to invest in Uganda for you investors out there.

‘We confess idolatry, witchcraft, political hypocrisy, dishonesty, intrigue’

by Michael CarlEmail –  Michael Carl is a veteran journalist with overseas military experience and experience as a political consultant. He also has two Master’s Degrees, is a bi-vocational pastor and lives with his family in the Northeast United States.More ↓

The Ugandan newssite New Vision reports President Yoweri Museveni celebrated Uganda’s 50th anniversary of independence from Britain at the National Jubilee Prayers event by publicly repenting of his personal sin and the sins of the nation.

“I stand here today to close the evil past, and especially in the last 50 years of our national leadership history and at the threshold of a new dispensation in the life of this nation. I stand here on my own behalf and on behalf of my predecessors to repent. We ask for your forgiveness,” Museveni prayed.

“We confess these sins, which have greatly hampered our national cohesion and delayed our political, social and economic transformation. We confess sins of idolatry and witchcraft which are rampant in our land. We confess sins of shedding innocent blood, sins of political hypocrisy, dishonesty, intrigue and betrayal,” Museveni said.

“Forgive us of sins of pride, tribalism and sectarianism; sins of laziness, indifference and irresponsibility; sins of corruption and bribery that have eroded our national resources; sins of sexual immorality, drunkenness and debauchery; sins of unforgiveness, bitterness, hatred and revenge; sins of injustice, oppression and exploitation; sins of rebellion, insubordination, strife and conflict,” Museveni prayed.

Next, the president dedicated Uganda to God.

Christianity is Feared

Ray: I ran in the 2008 Election as a candidate for the CHP Party in the Newmarket/ Aurora riding. I feel I should disclose this when promoting something the leader has to say. Because this article touched on matters of truth as promoted by Christians I thought it was an article that is worthy of repeating in our Blog. As always I welcome the comments of others. Let us know what you think of Jim’s article.

By Jim Hnatiuk – Leader of the Christian Heritage Party CHP Communiqué Vol 19, No 38, Sept 18, 2012
www.chp.ca

There is a huge difference between the open, honest exchange of ideas in a public debate and the indoctrination of a society through the use of manipulative propaganda.

The free market exchange of ideas is considered a “given” in countries like Canada, the United States, Great Britain, and many other countries that have democracies grounded in the rule of law. This freedom is what most of us have grown up with, it’s what we have come to expect, and we may even think it absurd if anyone suggests that Canada allows any less.

In contrast, Sharia-governed countries—like Iran today—will imprison or sentence to death those speaking what they believe to be true. But then again, Iran is on the other side of the world—isn’t it?

The Soviet Union had a long history of state atheism, which suppressed public expression over wide areas of its influence.

The atheist Mexican state in 1917 enacted enormous restrictions targeting the Catholic Church; one prohibition was even meant to keep Catholics from being educated in their own religion. Could that ever happen in Canada?

In 1793, Anacharsis Cloots, an atheistic French politician, declared that “Reason” and “Truth” were “supremely intolerant.” Was Cloots saying that truth was wrong? How ridiculous! But, maybe not. Wasn’t it just a few years ago our Canadian Human Rights Commission ruled that “Truth is no defence?”

So who or what represents Truth? Well, we know that Christianity certainly does. Christianity is the baseline of truth and thus is feared worldwide by those who mean to control others. In fact, Christians are persecuted worldwide, not because they are intolerant of others, but rather because they represent truth, and they, and others who understand truth, want to see that it is expressed in the free market exchange of ideas. Those who want to control people feel that the truth must be suppressed; dictators seek control of all public media so that they can silence any truth which they find inconvenient or embarrassing. They want to get rid of the Christians and, for that matter, get rid of anyone who demonstrates sympathy or admiration for Judeo-Christian values and principles.

Those of us who represent the Christian Heritage Party of Canada are indeed walking the high road because CHP Canada believes that the truth must be heard and restored within the educational, judicial, and legislative systems of our nation. Our party is not intolerant, it is not radically “right wing;” rather it is right on!

Should people fear our biblical values? You bet! Those people who want to control and intimidate the citizens of Canada will naturally fear the revealing light of the truth. On the other hand, those who love the truth should welcome an honest public debate about the issues facing our nation today. Both groups, those who fear the truth and those who welcome the debate, deserve to know something: CHP Canada is growing, our members are organizing, and we who love the truth are coming to take back our wonderful nation and to defend the principles upon which it was founded, principles—as stated in the Preamble to Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms— “that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law.” Won’t you join your voice with ours?

The time to get into the battle is now. Join the Christian Heritage Party of Canada and make your stand for freedom, a glorious part of our blessed Christian heritage.

Heteronormativity – Have you been ‘re-normed’ yet?

RAY: Who has the right to teach our children when it comes to issues of morality? Are we going to sit back and let the state assume this role? This is a letter hot off the press that was sent to me this morning. I recommend that if you live in Canada that you talk to your local MP about this matter. Write into your local newspaper. I must applaud those that are able to withdraw their children from the public education system and home school them when I read reports like this.

Jim Hnatiuk – Leader of the Christian Heritage Party   CHP Communiqué Vol 19, July 03, 2012

The New Norms  

“Have you been ‘re-normed’ yet?”

Maybe you haven’t, but the campaign to re-norm your children has already started—at school. 

 In January of this year, the managing editor of Vancouver’s homosexual newspaper made a startling declaration: “We will teach your kids the new norms!”  

That campaign is not really new; it’s been lurking in the woodwork for at least four years, probably longer.       In 2008, writing in the Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, Catherine McGregor of the University of Victoria published an article entitled “Norming and forming: Challenging heteronormativity in educational policy discourses”.   

Who is Catherine McGregor? Dr. McGregor is an associate professor of Leadership Studies at the University of Victoria. Particularly interested in promoting the role of teachers, as leaders in schools and communities, on bringing about social and educational change, she says, she represents UVic as a member of the Educational Leadership Network, and is a member of the BC College of Teachers—that’s the organization that violated the free speech rights of BC teacher Chris Kempling, you may remember.      

She has clout in the field of public education. She’s also been a member of the NDP for more than 40 years. She is a doctrinaire socialist, so when she writes about “re-norming” the culture, we need to beware. She starts from the position that everything traditional is wrong, wrong, wrong!       Especially “heteronormativity”.       In her 38-page treatise in the Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy she clearly wants to re-shape the entire society that our children and grandchildren are going to grow up in. She wants to manipulate their minds and their attitudes, especially about “heteronormativity”.

What is “heteronormativity”?      

 It’s the assumption, universal in all human societies and cultures for millennia, that the normal or default setting for human sexuality is intimacy and dependence between two individuals, one male and one female.      

Under the “new norms” the radical sex activists want to teach to your children, “heteronormativity” is a no-no.      

In fact to them, everything “hetero” is a no-no.      

Can they “re-norm” the culture? They believe they can, and they’re determined that they will—and you will have no voice nor vote in the matter. Just shut up and let your betters, like Catherine McGregor, tell your children that you’re wrong, wrong, wrong!      

Moving from “normative”(that is to say, what has for millennia been regarded as “normal”) to “reformative” policy practices— the prescription favoured by Dr. McGregor and her cadre of revolutionaries prefer — means chucking out what has been normal and stable and replacing it with the acronyms, symbols and perversions of the LGBTTIQQ—regardless of the opinions of students, parents, pastors, priests and more traditional educators. Your betters (the sophisticated intelligentsia) will tell you what you ought to want.

Evolution and Secular Thinking

RAY: For this week’s show we had Dr. Harold McCarthy joined us for an invigorating conversation which touched on the Ontario provincial government Dalton McGuinty’s non-constitutional opinion that he is Supreme and not the Roman Catholic church regarding what is taught in the Catholic School Boards of Ontario. We also discussed how the widespread common belief in Evolution drives secular thinking today. We are going to have Harold back next week so that we can continue this most interesting conversation that we started with him.

Part 1

Part 2

We are not planning to have live calling in for this show at this time. We hope to interact with those that wish to leave their comments at the website after each show. Let us know your opinions. We’d like to hear from you. You will see a Follow button on the left side of the screen that you can register to follow the conversation. Comment on occasion as well. Join in on the conversation.

Church and State when is it Separated or is it?

BRAD: Recently the provincial government in Ontario issued a stern warning to the Catholic Church that they are in fact the higher power when it comes to running Ontario schools!

Premier Dalton McGuinty stated they have a different set of responsibilities during a recent visit to a Canadian manufacturing company.

McGuinty claims that they  are accountable to all faiths, accountable to people with no faith, and accountable to parents, and basically it seems to me from this statement of arrogance that they are the higher power!

McGuinty’s wife by the way, is a separate school teacher which in fact receives 7 billion annually in taxpayer funding, doesn’t say which separate school she teaches, but probably i can bet not a Catholic school teacher after that comment!

We all know what happens when politics and religion clash, and lets wait and see the outcome of such an arrogant and righteous comment made by the Liberal party and premier McGuinty!

RAY: What you have here is a clash between the Secular Humanist World View which represents the majority of Canadians Viewpoint as expressed by who we elect as our government officials and the Christian WorldView. The sad thing is these matters are seldom identified correctly for what they are. There is a religious battle going on between people who do not believe in Absolute truth, therefore by definition they do not believe there is a God and people who do believe in Absolute truth, namely the Christians and those that are persuaded toward the Judeao Christian Worldview of morality. Morality without God is Amorality. What we have here is Amorality being forced on those that wish to live their lives by God’s Moral code of ethics. In fact Amorality leads to immorality because an Amoral person does not believe that what is right and wrong is defined by a Sovereign power that is above his governments authority. So he lowers his expectations of what he wants society to be by making the state sovereign instead and accepting the states rule over him. This was actually the goal in ancient times when monarchs stated that they represented God to the masses and actually in many cases expected to be revered as God themselves.

The historical bible account of the prophet Daniel spending time in the Lions Den is a reminder of what it may take for a Jew and by extension a Christian to obey God’s wishes in defiance of the rule of the state. Throughout history there have been many godly and righteous martyrs who followed the footsteps of the prophets faithfully willing to lay down their lives in refusal to honor the state rule above the rule of God. There are martyrs in the middle eastern and eastern countries that have been forced into similar sacrifice in the year 2012. (I am not referring to Muslim murderers who have taken over the word martyr and turned it into a word that for them justifies murder. I am talking about true martyrs who for no fault of their own other than their beliefs that are in opposition with a State authority, it has cost them their lives.) We in North America seem so far spared of this level of committment. However we must never forget, those of us who are followers of Christ what it means to follow Him. He said “Pick up your cross and follow me.”. Eleven of His disciples that he said that to were martyred for taking His instruction seriously. The state hated Christians after Jesus ascended to heaven calling them “Atheists” for believing in only one God and calling them “the cult of the resurrection” for testifying to the fact that five hundred eyewitnesses met with Jesus and felt his wounds and ate with Him after his burial and resurrection. Many of them were martyred for not recanting what they had seen and heard.

Today Christians must continue to stand their ground. Shame on most of us. I include myself. Because if I know that Abortion is a Secular Humanist Religions worldview that counters a WorldView that includes God as supreme over the state. And if I know that the state is in opposition to the God who I am willing to carry my own cross for, then why am I not out picketing in front of our hospitals that are state run and are murdering the unborn Children of our Country? Is it to protect myself so that no harm will come to me by the state? Is it apathy? The biggest question I fear is “Will I be held accountable before the Lord Jesus Christ when I am judged for what I did here on earth if I never spoke out about the injustices that the Secular Humanist State force upon the citizenry? Jesus said that Christians are to be the salt of the earth and warned them about losing their saltines. They do not have to be the majority but if they know “Absolute Truth” in a society that doesn’t know Truth then they must speak out and as a little salt can preserve meat. So too a little preservation by Christians can preserve our society, making it a safer and better place for future generations. Paul said of Jesus. And we must not forget this. “God our saviour desires that all men might be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth”. Ultimately the salvation experience of being born again from above by the willingness of God in the person of the Holy Spirit to dwell in us, makes us God’s representatives here on earth. His ambassadors. His messengers of Truth to a world that is in need of our Lord and Saviour who defined himself as being truth. “I am the way the truth and the life”.

I hope my reader can appreciate my passion as I delved into giving a pep-talk to Christians and a Sermon to all in this response.
