Has anyone asked the following question: why didn’t the so called Reformation happen in the East? Why didn’t it happen in Russia, Serbia, Romania, Greece, Armenia and other Eastern Countries that call themselves Christian. This is something that I’ve thought about for a long time and I believe that I’ve found the answer.
I have often criticized fellow Christians and conservatives in my country and other Western countries for blaming societal problems on Islam and Muslims. I have often expressed anger at this because it is in my opinion an abdication of responsibility. Muslims aren’t the reason that Western countries have homosexual “marriage”, sky high abortion rates, sky high divorce rates, euthanasia, feminism, or Darwinism taught in our schools.
Donald Trump has recently announced that America will now recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel. Also, he has initiated a process where the embassy will be moved to Jerusalem. This obviously has huge ramifications for the Arab Israeli conflict. I won’t comment on that here, but I do want to talk about the history of Zionism.
In recent decades, Muslims have begun using the Bible against Christians. In my view, this is an unwise move. It’ll only work providing the Christian does not know their own Bible, especially the NT. Christians and Muslims do share theology in common such as Jesus being the Messiah and born of a virgin. Muslims will see this in the Bible and take it as confirmation. However, on the points that we disagree, some Muslims will take quotes out of the context of the book they’re quoting from and try to prove Islam.
I remember in 2005 when homosexual “marriage” was voted on in the house. I remember where I was sitting when a majority of the Members of Parliament spat in God’s face and profaned the holy institution and marriage. However, when it was over I said to myself: At least it’s over now. We don’t have to deal with this garbage again. We can move on.
Happy Sunday! For many years, I’ve been familiar with the Papal Encyclicals that deal with the corrupt and anti-Christian ideas of the so called Enlightenment. The Popes of the 19th Century such as Gregory XVI, Pius IX and others condemned Enlightenment ideas such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and representative democracy.
Today, millions of Americans celebrate Thanksgiving. In Canada we celebrated Thanksgiving last month. The idea of Thanksgiving is to be thankful for what you have. The idea is to be thankful to the Creator. Obviously many things come to mind.
Michael Coren is the first person to block me on Twitter. I’ve been a harsh critic of his. About four years ago, he endorsed homosexual “marriage” and started attending an Anglican Church since they take a more liberal approach to sodomy. Of course, the Anglicans of old would consider this to be full blown apostasy but rationality seems to go out the window for enemies of Jesus Christ.
Yesterday two young conservative Catholics made a video on the “Spiritual Great Replacement”. These two Catholics are Brittany Pettibone and Faith Goldy. I actually met Faith Goldy in December 2014 when she came to Calgary to do a talk at a Catholic event. She headed a panel discussion with three local Priests. I’ve never met Brittany Pettibone before though I’m a fan of her book Hatred Day, co-authored with her sister Nicole.
