First year anniversary of Iraq war.

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2004

:angry: On Saturday, one year ago, the US led coalition invaded Iraq. On Saturday I read my local newspaper. I watched CNN, CBC and other stations. I was so angry at the reporting, commentary and the left leaning slant of it all (the war reportage in retrospect). That is why I am writing today after a bit of steam has blown off and the engine inside my head cooled. I wondered how can the media, specially that in Canada, be so anti-american and anti Bush. On Sunday I watched a program on TVO where a special speaker had a chance to speak his view. Amazingly he gave an hour long talk on anti-Americanism and where the roots of it originated. Knowing now the brief history of anti-Americanism in Canada, add to that a conservative like Pres Bush, I can see how some (most?) Canadians can go ballistic in regards to US actions.

Now that being said… It is as I wrote in an ealier post about Iraq and the media. If they can’t get their facts straight they would serve the community better by remaining silent. In an age like ours we can no longer afford the luxury of miss-informed(?) rhetoric passing for news. If politics remain as usual then all I can say is pray for the world. People are going to die because some benefit from speaking falsehoods. The rest form opinions on these errors and falsehoods. Until we desire truth more than anything else… our actions will never be right except by accident.

As in Corinth so in the West

Friday, March 19th, 2004

I recently made an addition to my site. Here is a bit of what I wrote…


Leaven – compromising the truth.

There is a right way to live and there is a wrong way to live. Sin has consequences. I am not writing about eternal salvation. Sexual promiscuity causes the spread of sexual diseases. It also weakens the family structure. The more “freedom” that is allowed the more danger becomes inherent in their daily living. There is a holy model of sex between one man and one woman, pledged to each other. When a little bit of compromise is added to that model, the situation becomes plastic and more compromises are sure to follow. Error and sin then become so normal a way of life that people begin to think it is a basic right and they are free to indulge their carnal impulses in any fashion that pleases them. This was the evolving case at Corinth.


:plain: I just want to add that this “evolving” has been happening in Western Europe, Canada and the USA. The child killed in the womb to sexual promiscuity to ???? Euthenasia is also making inroads into the consciouness of our citenzenry. How much further will a people drift before common sense or just plain conscience awakens. Too bad we don’t have an Apostle Paul living today with the moral authority to bring sense to a people and their governments in the West.

Big Brothers Association of Canada

Big Brothers Association of Canada

I remember when they first called us some twenty years ago. At that time we were helping ministries with finances through telephone solicitations. They would call and we would respond with a donation. Many organizations benefited.

Then things got a bit tight and we needed to tighten our belts. When we told organizations that we could not help them in that particular year, they responded by not calling for about another year. Except for one group… Big Brothers.

We supported them the longest of all of them. They were the last organization we gave money to. When we said we could not help them one year they responded, we thought, like the others. A few months later we got another call from them. We said we couldn’t help. Another few months another call. And another call and another call.

We finally got so upset with them we asked to be taken off their list. Then we got another call and another call… etc.

In the last four years we have gotten dozens of calls. Everytime we said not to call again. They called again. Over the years we got so upset with them that we vowed never to give money to any organization that called us.

Last month I got a call from them again. I got a call from them again today. Will it ever end? No other organization has been so persistent and can I say it… abusive.

They do a great work and one that is needed. Their telephone work needs a major overhaul. Am I alone in this? I think not. Someday perhaps they will show a bit of christian charity to those who want to help. In the meanwhile, everyone loses who calls my home.


Because I don’t need to find another with the same tactics.

What a shame.

Asteroid – future impact

Asteroid – future impact

Tonight I watched a special on CBC about potential asteroid impacts and what can be done about them. Everytime the subject comes up they are sure to say they have no idea when an impact could occur. Ranging from today upwards to 10’s of thousands of years.

In Revelations two impacts are foretold. One is an asteroid and the other is most likely a small comet. There will be great loss of life after each of their impacts. These are only two of the catastrophies that will occur before the return of Jesus to set up His kingdom. These two objects are out there right now, approaching our planet, carrying with it the judgment of God. They were made for those days.

Will man, if they can see there approach, try to stop them? Yes, if the anti-christ has anything to do with it. Will they succeed in deflecting them? No! Hopefully there will be some who will repent at there coming, yet they will still fall.

The time of their visitation is not too far off. For those who are left behind on the earth to face these heralds of judgment, make peace with God. For those who are alive today, love God and do what is right. When the Son calls be ready. As with Noah so with us today, when the door of the ark is closed only those inside are saved, it is too late for those who would not believe.

The Spirit of God moves in one of His people, and a slumbering spirit becomes conscious of God. The conscience of the man is pricked by the questions; what have I done, where have I been, what have I missed?

The reply echoes in the heart of this man; you have done nothing, you have been absent, you have missed everything! “What should I do?”, replies the man. Send up your prayers, into the heavenly temple, for the fulness of His Spirit to fall.

The man repents and humbles himself, calling for the Spirit to come, into his heart, and into that of another. Then the Spirit of God moves in another of His people, and one more slumbering spirit awakens.

Again and again, prayer is raised, until even those who are not His people are moved by the presence of God.

Roy Moore, Chief Justice, Alabama Supreme Court

Roy Moore, Chief Justice, Alabama Supreme Court

“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to remain silent”. Paraphrased the phrase… and I am certain someone could tell me the quote, the name, and the source. Roy Moore is a good man who did not remain silent. It cost him appointment. Others may try to get him disbarred as well. Who knows where it will go from here.

The United States is a Christian based nation. Canada is also a Christian based nation. In both countries there is an attack underway to subjugate Christianity and make it subservient to amoral principles, thus elevating the pseudo-religion of humanism. The liberal justices appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States in the 60’s and 70’s, and the ratification of the Charter of Rights in Canada, were the opening moves of the enemy to dismantle the Dominion of God over the people of both nations. When the state tries to compel someone to follow the state’s dictates instead of the moral principles of God in their life, then that state must be resisted in that matter.

The bible says that you should be subject to those in authority over you, including the state that God has established. Yet we must also remember that we must obey God rather than man(read the state). When the two are in conflict, the higher authority must be obeyed. That is what Judge Roy Moore has done. “Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand”. Eph 6:13 NKJV

Thank you, Judge Roy Moore, for standing up for the God of the US Constitution and The Bill of Rights, and continuing to stand against those who would deny His hand in the history of your nation. It is my hope that you will not be a lone voice crying in the wilderness.

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day

It is fitting that today it should be raining. Here in Canada it is Remembrance Day. It is a day when at 11:00am everything stops and people remember the sacrifices of those Canadians who have died in the service of our country. The politics that led to the wars are placed aside. Today we mourn the loss of children eager for war service and the professional soldiers who led them. War, the monster that devours life and leaves behind the carcasses of once living flesh. Someday the monster will be put to death. Until then remember the monster, the children, the soldier. Perhaps then the lust for war will diminish and life be given a chance to flourish.

Spring Time Yet?

Spring Time Yet?

Last year I wrote a piece called “Winter Hope”. In it I described my melancholy existence. To those that know me it comes as no surprise that my additions to the web have been pretty lean the last three years. (original content that is) What I find interesting is that the return of spring (emotional life cycle) may finally be approaching. If you have some time to pray, lift me up in prayer, then the Son’s rising will warm my soul and new life can spring once again from the seed of God within me.
God bless and thanks.

Homosexual Evangelism?

Homosexual Evangelism?

A couple of months ago the courts in Canada came to the decision that limiting marriage to one male with one female is contrary to the Charter of Rights. This case arose because an Ontario couple, both male, tried to get married to each other. When the case finally came to the Supreme Court of Ontario, the justices decided that not allowing them to marry was an act against their rights under the charter. They were then allowed to be married.

Last month a gay minister in the US was ordained a bishop in the Anglican Community. There is some strife among Anglicans that this was permitted and some church splitting will most likely result.

Is it my imagination? Since these two events, widely covered by the news, there seems to be a large number of programs that have brought forth the issue of homosexuality. Many programs seemed to have dipped into their archives to bring forward a program or two that had homosexuality as its central theme. Others had a favourable portrayal or comic relief of situations on this theme. Some even had two partners of the same sex kissing.

Is this homosexual evangelism? The term is an oxymoron, yet is it happening? Perhaps to some the term fits. Some people believe that Canada and the Church(US) are finally growing up and leaving hatred behind. Others, that darkness is spreading and the times are getting dangerous. Personally I believe that Canada and the Anglican Communion have taken another step closer toward the heart of Babel. How far away is the coming kingdom of the anti-christ? The whole world is headed in that direction. It will come about.

What to do? Pray for them (Canada, the Anglican Community and the homosexual) and walk according to the light that God has given you. He is the final Judge. Perhaps our prayers may yet pull someone into the light or back into the light. Support those who have a ministry to reach the homosexual. Yet in the end know this… only God can give light to the lost. Only He can create a new creature in them. In these days we are ministers of God’s grace and mercy. Judgment will come from God soon enough for all unrepentant sinners, whatever their sin. Until then, with patience, speak the truth in love.

Halloween – day after

Halloween – day after
The night of Halloween and a single knock came to the door. One child and adult braved the night to continue the tradition of the Druids.

Where have the children gone… into churches, malls and halls. There where the gifts and candy were closely monitored to prevent the tainting of treats with drugs, pins, razorblades. We have come a long way from when I was a child.

Being a Christian (conservative) I find I am sometimes torn between the time of innocence when we dressed to make fun of what scared us or delighted us, to the time where evil does walk the streets and things once praticed in innocence takes on a dark taint in today’s world.

Today I look at greying sky and leaves turned gold and red. I think back to the good old days and wonder where have they gone. Sadly, the answer comes; they have given up on the truth of God to beleive a lie. What is that lie? Take your pick.

Today is a different age. Today has a different reality. Where now will the heart of man lead us? Perhaps into that greater diversity that the bible calls sin and others call choice.

So I am reflective this day with sadness as my companion. I will not stay here long. It is only a time for remembrance as I observe the view out my window.
