Escape from Hamas

Whitefox_AvatarRay: On our next show on Truth is what matters we are going to discuss the comparison of the Quran with the Bible.

In preparation for that show I have posted a link to a fox news documentary called “Escape from Hamas”. This documentary interviews Mousaf San Yousef the son of a Hamas leader. He details how by studying the Bible and comparing it to the Quran he realized that the truth lies in the Bible and not in the Quran.

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.

Paedophiles Setting Curriculum for Education in Ontario (Revisited)

01ff5b7Ray: We revisited this topic which we introduced in 2012 because Ben Levin who was the Deputy Minister of Education in 2010 was arrested recently with 6 charges of Sexual Deviancy, including Paedophilia toward a minor and publishing of these materials on the internet. We point out that Kathleen Wynne (A professing Lesbian) was the minster of education and Ben Levin was her deputy minister when an attempt was made in 2010 to introduce a perverted sex education curriculum that sought to teach the children in the public schools in Ontario to experiment with using carrots and other vegetables to experience Sodomy and what its like to be a Homosexual first hand.

Also revisit our last posting on this topic in which we pointed out that part of the curriculum involved the rape of 23 children in order to find out how often they could be made to have orgasm in a 24 hour period of time.
http://truthiswhatmatters.com/2012/11/02/paedophiles-are-behind-ontario-sex-education/

We also talked about how God sees us as three part beings wheras Freud only saw two parts to our beings. We discussed how that Psychology comes short of giving the right answers because it deals with the mind only and not the spirit of man.

Hebrews 4 – 12 For the Word of God is alive, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the separating of soul (Gk:psyche, natural desires) and spirit (Gk:pneumos, Godward desires), and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intentions of the heart. (SKJV)

For more information about the Sex Education Scandals in Ontario we have also posted a link to a News Clip by Sun News.
http://www.sunnewsnetwork.ca/video/featured/prime-time/867432237001/inappropriate-teaching-in-toronto-schools/2360476813001

Please give us your comments, especially if you live in Ontario where our children are at risk due to the questionable curriculum that potentially could be forced on them.

Creation vs Evolution

01ff5b7Ray: In this episode for part 1 we interviewed ADAM BENTON from the U.K. about his views of Evolution. We also asked Adam whether he considered himself to be a good person.

Ray: In the second part of our session we connected Adam with Dr. Harold McCarthy for some follow up conversation related to the 3 sessions we did with Harold in 2012. This resulted in a good debate between Creation vs. Evolution.

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.

Boy and Girl Scouts Of Britain soon to welcome Atheists

851d0e812c8bfb4572e964c1233a50c7Brad: In a recent article in Metro news Dec 5,2012 atheists could be allowed to join Britain’s Boy and Girl Scouts!

According to the article, the Scout Association plans to draft an alternative oath specially for younger people with no references to God in the new reboy girl scoutsvised oath.

As well, younger people who do not have a faith are also welcome to join in this new revised oath especially geared to them.

The Scouts have offered versions referring to God to Muslim , Hindus, and other religions, but none so far to atheists.

According to Wayne Bulpitt ,the associations chief commissioner, he wanted the memberships opinion on this new revised oath, to keep them up to date with worldly views as well as to encourage memberships.

”However throughout their 105 year history the scouts continue to evolve so they will remain relevant to communities across the United Kingdom” quoted by Wayne Bulpitt.

Mr. Bulpitt also states they are a value based movement and religion will remain a key value!

Seems to this writer, how can the Scouts still have religion as a key value of the organization, when they welcome people who actually believe in nothing of religious value?cross

One thing though Mr Bulpitt states is that he plans to keep the oath to the queen

In this writers opinion ,the Scouts seem to throw out all of there values and ethics over their 105 year history for the sake of new members, members who will disband the organization because of their belief in nothing!

01ff5b7Ray: I was a scout earlier along my journey of life. When I was, there was little evidence of true Christianity in the organization. Although we did meet in an Anglican Church. The leaders cursed, drank, smoked and were not church attenders for the most part. There was no restriction on joining as evidenced by the leaders themselves. I imagine the oath to the queen and to God were performed without belief by many. The organization was originally started by the Anglican Church and always intended for atheists and others to join but it intended to influence them by befriending them in the name of Christ. And Atheists and the like were never turned away. (The oaths of allegiance were uttered by the atheists in those days when they were less militant against the organization and society in general.)

This is the fate of many Christian formed organizations which actually had there start as an attempt to encourage Christian friendships. However many of them downplayed their purpose so much that Christ was pretty much never mentioned. The Bible calls it putting your light under a bushel. What good is it if no one sees it?

Another such organization which succumbed was the Young Mans Christian Organization (YMCA). Today it is secular. It long ago gave up on basing its code of ethics on what would be called “Godly Morals”. The same will happen to the Boy Scouts. It already has happened on occasion as evidenced by the cases of child abuse reported.

As a side note the word in Noah Websters dictionary “MORALS” at one time gave the definition “pertaining to Godliness”.  That was expunged a hundred years ago when Merriam took over the dictionary. It might interest you to know that the Websters dictionary was written as an after thought by Noah in order to accompany the Websters Bible that he laboured many years prior to produce. The Webster Bible has since  disappeared but the now corrupted dictionary remains.

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.

Devolution

RAY: Devolution is an interesting topic. In most cases things have wound downward not upward over time. For example the first Dinosaur (latin for “terrible lizard”) that was discovered was called Iguanodon as it was noted to be identical only more than 10x larger than todays Iguana. It is also this initial discovery that has caused the common belief that these terrible lizards had leather skin with scales. But the Iguanodon has seemingly devolved into todays Iguana. This is also the case for sharks which have devolved in size and plant species which have much smaller leaves than they did 6000 years ago. There is a scorpion that was found in an underground cavern system which appears to have lost its eyes over time. Wholly mammoths have lost their hair and are much smaller today (now called elephants). Humans that used to live up to 1000 years are now living only 80 years on average. The Neanderthal is an example of ancient humans that lived a long life. We know this because of their lengthened noses and their extra bone along the eyebrows. (It has been observed that noses never stop growing all of our lives and that extra bone accumulates above the eyebrows all of our lives.) Today no one lives long enough to develop the skull features of the Neanderthal. Opposite to what Darwin believed it appears that things are increasingly becoming reduced rather than improved over time.

This was in response to a very interesting article entitled Our sense of smell is “devolving” by Adam Benton

The Simplified King James Version. Why is Ray working on a version of the Bible that resembles the King James?

A few sentences were cut off in the video.

Ray: That is what proves the accuracy of the over 5000 Majority Texts and that is what disproves the two rogue Alexandrian documents known as the Alexandrian Text. The Alexandrian text should be avoided completely. These texts are also referred to as the Vaticanus (it was discovered in the Vatican) and and the Tischendorf (after the name of the one that discovered it in a monestory in the Sinai) it is also refered to as the Siniaticus. Some argue there are some other texts but these are the two almost complete texts from which we are now receiving most of our modern Bibles today.

One of the arguments for the need for newer bibles is the desire for English that is more up to todays standards. This is a legitimate argument and it is the reason that the KJV itself went through 5 revisions up to and including 1812, 1769 or 1762 depending on which version of the KJV you use. All of these versions are almost identical except for punctuations mostly.

I have chosen to stick with the KJV line of bible as the KJV is based on the Majority of the texts and not the alexandrian. There was a recent attempt to give us an updated language bible called the New King James Version (NKJV). The problem with this version however is that they too accepted some of the errors from the Tichendorf (Alexandrian).

Starting in around 2003 I took some courses in Greek and Hebrew so that I could better understand the original languages of the Bible. After that in 2009 I wrote a book entitled “Illumination or Illusion” which examined the various KJV and non-KJV versions which resulted in many people asking me which version of the Bible I would recommend for someone wanting to have a more modern Bible? Starting in 2010 I decided that I would experiment with producing an accurate modern version that I am calling the SKJV (Simplified King James Version).

We are now preparing this new version for use in “English as a Second Language” training by Missionaries overseas and eventually we hope to make it availble in regular book stores later on. The New Testament is complete and we have about a years worth of work to complete the Old Testament ahead of us.

If anyone would like to examine a portion of the SKJV, Look down the left side of the screen under FREEBIES for the downloadable copy of the Gospel of John. It includes the Bible introduction and some commentary. I hope to pick up on this topic again at a future time.

Brad: Well that concludes our show “Truth is what matters”. We hope to hear from our listeners. You may comment on any one of our programs. We look forward to hearing from you.

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.
