During these past few months our country has taken a few hits. The current administration has passed laws supporting transgenders, euthanasia, decriminalising drug use and now special legislation against Islamophobia. Government officials seem to think that it is necessary to protect Muslims from discrimination. To be honest, I never thought they were under any real danger while living here on Canadian soil. To the contrary, if any people need protecting it would be the Jewish people since they are eight times more likely to be the victim of hate crimes than any other group, according to Statistics Canada. So why all the fuss?
It should be obvious by now that media and politicians are not too concerned about facts. Integrity may have mattered once long ago but now it is mostly about masking and spinning info to control society. In parliament a young lady stands up and tells of bullying, that she is a Muslim and Muslims are Canadians. Bullying is a common experience for most groups and any one of us could stand up and site examples of it, irrespective of our religious upbringing. More to the point, it is estimated that some 90,000 JEWS and CHRISTIANS are tortured and killed many by Islamist each year. Ex-Muslim Al Fadi left Saudi Arabia for Christianity and now lives in the West. He says: “It’s by infiltrating the societies, the political systems, and by basically taking their time to grow, to become a majority that at some point, they will have a voice that they can topple things basically to their advantage.” Are our political leadership not hearing and seeing the same things that we see and hear!
The Bible teaches that men prefer darkness rather than light. Jesus was mostly rejected by His people. Jesus told them and others the truth about needing to be saved. Jesus did not simply teach and live the truth, He was the embodiment of it. During His life he denounced homosexuality, murder, false religions, idolatry, immorality and courageously faced the repercussions that would follow. Unlike many today, he was not afraid to speak the truth. He lived and died by it. While it would have been far more popular and safer to lie and deceive, He remained committed to the truth. Praise God He never denounced it. Even in the face of death, he remained committed to giving his life on Calvary. In the gospel of John, we are told that it is the truth that sets us free (8:32). Salvation is given to those who have confessed their sins and repented. In turn we are set free from the bondage of sin and able to serve our risen Saviour, Jesus Christ.
