You can run but you can’t hide

A good name is worth more than silver or Gold, and a tarnished one is worthless, but also very painful; generally.. Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty serves everyone’s best interest. I too had learned decades ago that the pen is mightier than the sword of the crooks, bullies, pretenders, imposters. Starting at the top is always the best way now too   http://mediamyopic.com/2008/12/16/foreclosure-facebook-style/   

Hey I admit it I hate crooks, the bad guys

– I dislike the bad cops and Bad RCMP in Canada
– I dislike all bad Professionals, bad civil and public servants and their too often poor managers now too
– I really dislike Bad Politicians, especially ex PM Paul Martin, Stephen Harper
– I dislike rightfully bad Pastors, and all alcoholics now too
– I have always disliked bad, crooked computer dealers too..
– I really also dislike Bell Canada rightfully as well and the CRTC..

We in Canada also  still do need real accountability, and the real beefing up of the enforcements, regulations against the much too many con artists liars, thieves, crooks, imposters, pretenders. being basically motivated by greed, increasing the profits. Bait and switch,  Misleading advertising, Unfair and Restrictive business trade practices seem to be a common thing in the Internet Service Providers  industry too, especially since generally the ISP are unregulated both by the Courts and the governments. It is a sad reality that even what is advertised is also next what the customer next consistently gets. “  The first biggest unacceptable bad culprits still who need to be fired ASAP are those rather toothless, pretentious, federal and provincial consumer Ministers and their mostly bad subordinates. Healthy Competition was supposedly a good way to decrease  the prices and increase the services, but instead we get price fixings, unfair and restrictive trade practices.. which still all reminds me of the bad immoral Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper trying to murder all of the opposition  out of existence too.. for he himself is no better as a leader, example of ethics, morality too. We do need still  a new real,  tougher cop on the beat. to strengthen all business, financial regulatory agencies and crack down on runaway “greed and scheming” , to really clean up the worlds of politics , finance, business and really  help to put in help put in place new, common-sense rules of the road that will protect investors, consumers and our entire economy from fraud and manipulation by an irresponsible few caused also by a  lack of “adult supervision” and  managers not being    as aggressive as they should in properly managing subordinates, others. Conservative  and Liberal governments administration’s laissez-faire philosophy is also  allowing excessive risk and corruption at the highest echelons and also by too many people with a false disdain for regulation. We need more activist regulatory approaches,  no-nonsense regulators. Too many of these crooks are still governed by a mentality governed by the principle that, “whatever is good for me, I do.”  Behave Honourable or you will be fired, terminated message  needs to be to apply to a range of social, physical, financial, governmental  institutions — and to individuals across right across the board. A real  restoration of a sense of responsibility, personal accountability  and the notions of  advocating beneficial values not just for ourselves, but what’s good for the others, the country as a whole, operating in reality out of a sense of what is being done is for the common good , Our too often poor Regulators do unacceptably “drop the ball,” and have failed to crack down on the bad culture of greed and scheming, to take seriously their own responsibility to “operate honourably.  The CRTC also itself has not put much of a dent in fraud, abuses,  and the entire system needs an overhaul. The CRTC also has missed too many red flags in its oversight of it’s duties, responsibilities..

“You can run but you can’t hide. This week a court in Australia ruled that social networking sites are an adequate medium for mortgage lenders to notify borrowers that they’re losing their homes. Barry Schnitt, a Facebook spokesperson, reportedly told news outlets that, “we’re pleased to see the Australian court validate Facebook as a reliable, secure and private medium for communication.” Schnitt may want to re-think his enthusiasm, as people are already crying Big Brother. But social networking users are rather naive to have ever thought these sites would serve strictly social purposes. First came the advertisers, then media began citing the pages as legit sources, employers followed suit, and now colleges are evaluating personal profiles in the admissions process. Once we disclose personal information in a public realm, albeit a virtual one, the public has little recourse in claiming rights to privacy.”

Obama triumphs, will be first black US president The Associated Press –  WASHINGTON (AP) – Barack Obama was elected the nation’s first black president Tuesday night in a historic triumph that overcame racial barriers as old as America itself.

John McCain’s White House bid: What went wrong?

 Tue. Nov. 4 2008 10:21 PM ET CTV.ca News  For the second time in eight years, Arizona Sen. John McCain failed in his bid to reach the White House. In the coming days and weeks television analysts, newspaper pundits, and political scientists will likely try to unravel the reasons McCain fell short this year. But a few key causes may already stand out.  There is little doubt that Barack Obama ran one of the best organized campaigns in U.S. presidential history, and the Democrat and his staff were largely responsible for McCain’s loss. But McCain, himself, did not help his cause. http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/20081104/mccains_loss_081104/20081104?s_name=uselection2008

The centraility of the cross of Jesus Christ

 

Here is the sad AND UNDENIABLE reality merely do ask any Mormon, LDS,  Morons, Others,  if they have actually read the Bible itself, read now the only true Bible, read and studied fully both  the New and Old Testament, and not the other books they claim God wrote, and they likely still will tell you they have not rather, studied, never mind applied the Bible, they have mainly heard someone else’s version of what is in the Bible and that is why so many people are lost, church people even now even confused about GOD, JESUS, THE HOLY SPIRIT AND WHAT THE REAL BIBLE ITSELF ACTUALLY SAYS NOW TOO.

“The cross of Christ is clearly central. In a great post on the nature of the gospel, C.J. Mahaney points out that while the gospel is the “good news of God’s saving activity in the person and work of Christ” (a definition he borrows from Jeff Purswell) it focuses more particularly on the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. And more specifically still, he asserts, the gospel is summarized by the cross–”For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” 1 Cor. 2:2. The resurrection is essential, for without it the cross’s message would be pointless, but the cross is where the gospel is seen most clearly.

The cross, then, proclaims the message that God became man to take upon Himself the punishment for our sins. Further, the perfect and righteous life of Christ–the God Man–enables God to give us the righteousness of Christ graciously and freely. This transaction occurs to those who believe on Jesus Christ and is wholly of grace and not in any way deserved by man. The cross shows the seriousness of sin–in that God would sacrifice His own Son because of the weight of our sins; and it also shows the magnitude of God’s mercy–that God would offer up His Son for us who in no way deserve mercy.

Further, the cross is seen as central in that it is the pinnacle of history, for it is the ultimate display of God’s glory–which is the ultimate purpose for God’s creation and all of its subsequent history. (I would encourage you to check out my friend Nathan Pitchford’s “Meditation for Good Friday” posted over at Reformation Theology Blog which deals with the centrality of the cross in all of history.)

But the cross is not only central to our faith, it is singular. Or rather it should be. What do I mean? Look at these verses:

“For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” (1 Cor. 2:2)“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” (Gal. 6:14)

The cross–and the Christ of the cross–should be our single treasure, our single pursuit, our single love. Every boast should only be in the light of the cross. Our only boast should be the cross. John Piper put it like this:

“Only boast in the cross of Jesus Christ. This is a single idea. A single goal for life. A single passion. Only boast in the cross. The word “boast” can be translated “exult in” or “rejoice in”. Only exult in the cross of Christ. Only rejoice in the cross of Christ. Paul says, Let this be your single passion, your single boast and joy and exultation.” (from pg. 49 of Don’t Waste Your Life–available as an online book here)

All of life should be viewed through the view of the cross. And as Piper points out later in that book, we can only boast singularly in the cross when our lives are crucified by and on that cross (notice Gal. 6:14b). Everything we do should be as a result of or a reflection of the cross. C.J. Mahaney points this out well in his book The Cross Centered Life. Our struggle to be pure in this world and our struggles to provide for our family–every aspect of our lives is touched by and should be shaped by the cross.

Let us aim to appreciate the centrality and significance of the cross of Christ, and endeavor by God’s grace to make it our single affection, joy, and boast!

 On the issue of THE CROSS and Mormons too ..

MORMON’S FALSE  OPPOSITION TO THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST AND WHAT IT STANDS FOR

May it never be that I should boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ (Galations 6:14)

To the Christian the cross represents salvation and eternal life, because it was there on the cross that Christ atoned for our sins. It reminds us of the awful cost of our redemption, and of how much we owe the Lord Jesus Christ, who is our hero, our Saviour and our life.

However, Mormon women do not wear a crucifix as jewellery. And the LDS will not permit a cross to be displayed anywhere on their premises. Strangely, seeing they insist that they are Christians, they don’t display any of the other symbols of Christianity anywhere on their premises either. Instead, the inside of their temple is decorated with Masonic/pagan symbols, and the external masonry with pagan, occultic and satanic symbols. (As a matter of interest, the cross is never featured alongside that type of symbolism because they oppose one another.)

Because of the  unbiblical LDS teachings Mormons are taught that they have to earn the right to the forgiveness of their own personal sins through obedience to LDS laws and ordinances, good works and a virtuous life. So they can never be sure whether or not they will eventually make the grade. And this diminishes the work of Christ in their eyes. Consequently, they could never ever be beholden to Christ in the way that Christians are. Nor could they ever enjoy the same saving relationship with Christ as do Christians.

Almost None of the LDS doctrines are biblical. Nor do they bear any resemblance to Christianity. In fact their teaching on the atonement opposes the foundational doctrine of Christian salvation, as preached by the apostles in the primitive church. For this reason Mormons cannot even begin to imagine the joy, freedom from guilt, peace of mind and overwhelming gratitude that accompanies the Christian’s assurance that Christ Himself earned the forgiveness of “my sins” when He bore my penalty in my place, that day on the cross at Calvary. Nor do they realize the utter devotion to Christ that is part and parcel of the Christian life. To the Christian the cross represents salvation from sin. It reminds us of what Christ achieved on our behalf, as well as of the tremendous cost to Himself.

THE REASON FOR THE CROSS

Contrary to what the LDS maintains, the cross wasn’t merely a weapon that was used to execute Christ. It was on the cross at Calvary that Christ defeated Satan, sin, death and hell, and earned our salvation (c/f John 12:31-33). So in the mind of a Christian, the cross is symbolic of all these things.

Furthermore, Christ wasn’t merely “killed,” as the LDS puts it. He went to the cross of His own free will and voluntarily laid down his life for the specific purpose of earning our salvation from the consequences of sin. He could have turned from the cross at any time. But instead He deliberately set His face steadfastly towards Jerusalem, knowing full well what awaited Him there (Luke 9:52). Then He gave His life on that cross, in our place, as our substitute, to pay the penalty for our sins, as was fore-ordained and so graphically illustrated in the “pictures” provided by the Old Covenant sacrificial system.

Throughout the Old Testament God has used the picture language of rituals to explain hard-to-understand concepts that were to become part and parcel of the coming New Covenant of Grace. And salvation from sin through a substitutionary sacrifice was one of these important concepts. You will find a more in-depth explanation of this fascinating topic in the article, “Baptism, Salvation and the Use of Biblical Symbolism,” a lead to which is provided for your convenience, at the bottom of this page.)

Christ’s whole purpose in coming to earth had been to sacrifice His life on that cross at Calvary, so that we could be set free from the stranglehold of sin. And moreover it was the will of God, as foretold by His prophets in the Old Testament.

Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man take it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again ….. (John 10:17-18, KJV) (Italics inserted by writer.)

To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins. (Acts 10:43, KJV)

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. ….. (Isaiah 53:5-6, KJV)

And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest? And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him. The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth: In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth. And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man? Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus. (Acts 8:30-35, KJV)

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3, KJV)

And you, being [spiritually] dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; (Colossians 2:13-14, KJV) (The writer’s italics.)

… Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree (1 Peter 2:24, KJV)

 One can’t help but wonder what the LDS  motivation is in teaching these false doctrines, as they will not be found anywhere in the pages of the Bible, no matter how long or hard you search. On the contrary, the above scriptures very clearly tells us that Christ atoned for our sins on the cross at Calvary.

Christ was fully aware that His suffering and death on the cross was the terrible price He would have to pay to cancel our debt of sin. But He voluntarily and selflessly chose to go through with it, for the likes of us:

Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. This he said, signifying what death he should die. (John 12: 31-33, KJV).

(Christ said:) And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. (John 3:14-15, KJV)

From that time forth began Jesus to shrew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. (Matthew 16:21, KJV)

And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem (Luke 9:51, KJV)

THE CHRISTIAN’S ATTITUDE TOWARDS THE CROSS

The church I attend has a large cross behind the pulpit, with a crown of thorns resting on it. Hanging down next to it is a banner that reads, “He died for me”. This is very effective in stimulating sincere and fervent worship. And every time I enter the church, I am deeply humbled at the sight of that cross. It reminds me that the best, the bravest and most selfless Person ever, suffered and died for me, in my place, because of my sins. And my heart fills with gratitude. But that is just why the cross is there. It is to remind us of who we are, who Christ is, what He did for us, and how much we owe Him.

Mayer Pearlman had this to say concerning the Christian’s attitude towards the cross of Christ: “The cross is the dynamo which generates in the human heart that response which constitutes the Christian life. ‘I’ll live for Him who died for me,’ states the dynamic of the cross. The Christian life is the soul’s reaction to the love of Christ. The cross of Christ inspires true repentance …..” (Knowing the Doctrines of the Bible, Part Two)

CHRIST’S SHED BLOOD COVERS THE SINS OF ALL WHO TRUST IN HIM

The LDS ignores what the Bible so clearly teaches, and insists that Christ’s atonement only covers the penalty for Adam’s sin and guarantees universal resurrection, thereby opening the way for us to earn the right to forgiveness of our own personal sins. Here are some scriptures that prove without a shadow of a doubt that Christ was crucified to pay the full price of all the sins of those who trust in Him for salvation:

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou salt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. (Matthew 1:21, KJV)

For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. (Matthew. 26:28, KJV)

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3, KJV)

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10, KJV)

… Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood (Revelation 1:5, KJV)

We see from the above that Christ’s death on the cross was vicarious, in that He died in our place, to pay the price of our sins. And that’s why the cross was always central to the gospel message preached by the primitive church:

But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. (1 Corinthians 1:23-24, KJV)

For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. (1 Corinthians 1:18, KJV)

Christians wear a cross as a testimony to their allegiance to Christ and as a symbol of their faith in His atonement for their sin through His sacrificial, substitutionary sacrifice on their behalf on the cross. And churches that follow the teachings of the Bible always prominently display a large cross at their place of worship, as a constant reminder to the congregation of who they once were (condemned sinners) and of what Christ has done for them (set them free from the guilt and the penalty of their sins). It also effectively reminds us of the terrible price He paid for our forgiveness.

 
THE LDS GOSPEL IS NOT
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
THE GOSPEL THAT CHRIST PROCLAIMED

Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law. But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. (Galations 3:21-25, KJV)

THE NEW COVENANT GOSPEL
In His wisdom and mercy God provided a way of salvation under a New Covenant of grace, that allowed for the fallenness of man. In, by and through Christ’s substitutionary atonement on the cross, He dealt with fallen man’s sin problem, and reconciled us to Himself.

 

God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. (2 Corinthians 5:19, KJV)

Although He had no sin, Christ paid the consequences for our sins, in our place, on the cross at Calvary. However, just as the Old Covenant sinner had to identify himself with the substitutionary sacrifice that was to die in his place to cover his sin, so we too need to identify ourselves with Christ by putting our faith in Him. And the moment we do that He becomes our our substitute sin bearer/saviour, and we are counted as being “in Him.”

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16, KJV)
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace, (Ephesians 1:7-8, NASB)

And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross (Colossians 2:13-14, KJV). (Italics inserted by writer.)

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9, KJV)

The gospel (good news) of the primitive Church of Jesus Christ was that Christ had ratified a New Covenant of grace for the forgiveness of sins by His shed blood on the cross at Calvary, where He had defeated sin, Satan, death and hell on our behalf.
This was the most amazing, liberating news. All the Old Covenant had ever done was to prove that fallen man could not live up to God’s standards of righteousness. But now the promised Jewish Messiah had come down to earth and had vicariously died to save us both from the consequences of our sins and from the power that sin has over us. The burden of guilt and the resulting fear of death and judgment was to be no more!

After His resurrection Christ appeared to His disciples, instructing them to be witnesses of His death on the cross, and of His resurrection three days later. He also commanded them to proclaim in His name, repentance and the forgiveness of sins:

Then He opened their understanding that they might understand the Scriptures, and said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day. And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. (Luke 24:45-48, KJV). (Italics inserted by writer.)

And then just before His ascension, He confirmed this instruction:

“Ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” (Acts 1:8, KJV)

Notice that the gospel was to be all about Him and how He had earned the forgiveness of our sins. They were to be witnesses as to who Christ was and what He had done for and on behalf of fallen mankind through his death and resurrection. This is why the gospel of Christ’s church was, and still is, always centred on Christ and the cross. As Paul said:

We preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. (1 Corinthians 1:23-24, KJV)

However, Satan doesn’t give up that easily. Although he knew that he had been defeated and was destined for judgment and hell, he wants to thwart God’s plan to redeem fallen man, and thereby take as many of us with him as he possibly can. With this aim in mind he sends out his messengers to proclaim counterfeit gospels with counterfeit saviours and a counterfeit salvation. Paul warned the church at Galatia concerning this danger:

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. (Galations 1:8-9, KJV)

THE MORMON GOSPEL
As mentioned, the gospel preached by the apostles in the primitive church was centred on Christ, the New Covenant of grace that He had ratified, and the forgiveness of sins that He had earned on our behalf on the cross. In contrast to this, the LDS has banned the symbol of the cross on their premises and their gospel is centred on Joseph Smith, their church and their supposed authority. But this was precisely the sort of thing that Paul was warning us about. The Mormon gospel bears no resemblance to the gospel that Christ instructed the apostles to preach. It is “another gospel.”

Although the LDS calls their gospel, “the gospel of Jesus Christ,” it is in reality the gospel of Joseph Smith. The “good news” that their missionaries proclaim from door to door is that God allowed the church that Christ had died for, to go into total apostasy, and that He also permitted the Bible, the standard of truth that He’d given us for our spiritual guidance and protection, to become corrupted and unreliable. They then go on to claim that their prophet, Joseph Smith, has restored the “true” church in these latter days, and that salvation can now be attained only through themselves.

Christ is sidelined, his atonement is deprecated and Joseph Smith and his LDS church are given all the glory.

One of the things Mormons are taught is that Christ’s atonement only covers universal resurrection. So the sad fact is that although the Bible clearly tells us that Christ died for the sins of those who identify themselves with Him by faith, Mormons don’t go that route. Instead they have opted to follow the way of salvation proclaimed by Joseph Smith, i.e. that they have to earn the right to forgiveness of their sins through obedience to the laws and ordinances of the LDS organization, plus virtuous living. (See the articles on this site entitled “Mormon Salvation and its Deceptiveness.” and “Mormon Salvation Exposed to the Light of the Bible.”)

Considering that under the Old Covenant nobody was ever able to satisfy God’s demands for righteousness in this way, the Mormon gospel places its followers in a precarious position. Not only that, they have trampled underfoot the precious blood of Christ that He so selflessly shed to earn, once and for all, the forgiveness of all our sins:

In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace. (Ephesians 1:7, KJV)

 

 
If you wish to gain a deeper understanding of this subject, click on the following links:

Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. (Romans 5:9, KJV)

Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, (Revelation 1:5, KJV)

Heralding the Messiah’s imminent coming, John the Baptist exhorted the people, ” Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 3:2, KJV).

During His lifetime Christ also proclaimed the gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven, which He sometimes referred to as the Kingdom of God. We know that these two expressions mean the same thing because sometimes they are used interchangeably, such as in Matthew 19:23-24.

Christ’s gospel (good news) was that Satan’s reign on earth was all but over because He had come down from heaven not only to atone for our sins but also to defeat Satan, God’s enemy and ours too; thereby breaking his hold on mankind and restoring the rule of God, or the Kingdom of God, on earth.

When we read the book of Acts, we notice that the disciples explained the gospel of Christ to the Jews by showing them via the scriptures, how the Old Covenant had been fulfilled in Christ. And so in order to understand the gospel properly, we will need to take a very quick look at both the Old and the New Covenants.

THE OLD COVENANT

Under the Old Covenant, when the Israelites had sinned, God didn’t tell them that they would have to earn the right to forgiveness (as does the LDS church). He knew fallen man was incapable of ever doing such a thing. So instead, He instituted the substitutionary sacrifice. The sinner had to take an unblemished animal to the altar and place his hand upon its head to indicate that it would represent him, and would die in his place, to cover his sin (Leviticus 1:4, 4:29,33). This was a picture of the coming, promised Jewish Messiah who would sacrifice His life to pay the full penalty for the sins of those who had indicated by faith, that He was their substitute sin bearer.

In his epistle to the church at Galatia, Paul explains that the Old Covenant was used by God to convince fallen man that he is, of himself, incapable of living according to God’s standards of righteousness. The constant plume of smoke arising from the sacrificial altar bore witness of this fact. Although they were God’s chosen people, who had enjoyed His protection and were in possession of His Law, and had every intention of fulfilling it; they nevertheless found themselves continuously slipping up in word, thought and deed. God’s Laws and Ordinances didn’t have the power to save anyone. All they did was reveal the holiness of God on the one hand, and the innate sinfulness of fallen man on the other.

The LDS Gospel is Not the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Obesity blamed for doubling rate of diabetes cases The Associated Press – ATLANTA (AP) – The nation’s obesity epidemic is exacting a heavy toll: The rate of new diabetes cases nearly doubled in the United States in the past 10 years, the government said Thursday.
Rate of Diabetes Cases Doubles in 10 Years: CDC U.S. News & World Report
New diabetes rate up 90 percent in past decade Reuters
WebMD – FOXNews – SmartAboutHealth – Bloomberg
all 421 news articles »
 

 If you read  all of the news at straight value, as the truth  as all being true, you really would be a fool.  I also do know that many people have diabetes.. but has this above rate of diabetes now even factored the war babies effect, those kids born after world war 2 and now there were  plenty of them and they are now becoming seniors with cancer, heart atacks,  diabetes. This increase of diabetes may be rather associated with more people now become seniors too?

 Judge this as true

(1 Cor 6:9 KJV)  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10  Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
  
(Mat 7:3 KJV)  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
 
 
Judge this now also
 
…Example of a really stupid Obama support Poll, you  include the alcoholics, drug addicts, smokers, adulterers,  as born again Christians . Never!
 
 
or Judge this
    
You cannot believe now many of  the clear false spins by the liberal news media who wrongfully dislike all professing Christians.
  
Now about some of the bad judges

Judge Not! I really Like those hypocrite who never read the Bible and quote falsely a verse out of the Bible like do not judge others, but they still do now hypocritcally judge  me when they quoted the verse too,  and  they also had said I should also talk about the sin of gluttony, obesity, but  I already have fully covered Gluttony elsewhere, and not all fat people are gluttons for a start too

Note -Sodom & Gomorrah (Jude 6-7, Gen 18:16-33; 19:1-29, Ezek 16:48-50)

Sexual immorality with “strange flesh”
Homosexuality
Pride
Gluttony
Idleness
Neglect of poor & needy
Both cities and the surrounding territory were destroyed by God
 
I have really also learned  form observing many persons the last 30 years that there tends to be no such thing as a little bit pregnant,  that to open the barn door a little bit,  left unrestrained, undisciplined, unsupervised, means  the barn door next it will eventually swing wide open.. and when any person tends to personally allow, start a little acceptable vice, eventually the other even bigger vices do now also tend to grow, develop there as well..  and they too all thus next can be easily discovered, even though the guilty persons will deny this.. even now next the vices of pre-marital sex, sodomy, polygamy, alcoholism, gambling, adultery,  drunkenness, bingeing, gluttony, gouging, Self-destructive behaviors, selfishness, indifference, apathy, jealousy, anger, hate,   envy,   rudeness, irritability or grudges , lust, cussing, cheating , addiction, shoplifting, stealing, tax evasions and even abusive behaviors, pride, lying.  
 
To some ostrich minded persons these same bad vices that are now so supposedly common and so pervasive in our society that they supposedly  have become overlooked,  and taken as acceptable but now really have they now too? Even lying these days is supposedly not that much of a big deal when they are considered ‘white lies.’? These same concept of vice that is present in every society, but how it is judged culturally differ now based on one’s own personal  religious belief systems that  supposedly vary widely as well but is this really true now as well.  
 
Personal Vices unrestrained are not only self-destructive but next also harmful to many others. They are not only limited solely as a result to one’s actions, but rather tend comprises of what is initially inside a person’s heart.
 
Over the last 30 years I have seen, learned firsthand that many, almost most  persons are dual standardized, two faced, even the completely very secular, non religious persons.. while they may even openly advocate personal freedom from the observations of all moral, legal laws, and now openly, publicly promote pornography, adultery, drunkenness, vice, but note this many of them do still personally hold inwardly and clearly believe that  the traditional moral values and moral standards are of a high personal value, and still required even in others, and they do judge others by these moral  values.
 
The unrepentant sins of any person, nation  still even today has next God’s negative corrections.. including not just the supposedly seven deadly sins.. Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for  whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.  God is not to be scoffed at.  And when there is supposedly no specific Scriptural reference to a specific proposed act , it is still good to ask oneself, not whether a certain thing is wrong, but rather if it is definitely good. (1 Cor 10:23 KJV)  All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.
 
 
 
(Mark 7:18 KJV)  And he saith unto them, Are ye so without understanding also? Do ye not perceive, that whatsoever thing from without entereth into the man, it cannot defile him;
 
(1 Cor 5:12 KJV)  For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
 
(1 Cor 6:2 KJV)  Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
 
(1 Cor 6:3 KJV)  Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
 
(1 Cor 6:4 KJV)  If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
 
(1 Cor 6:5 KJV)  I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
 
(1 Cor 10:15 KJV)  I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.
 
(1 Cor 11:31 KJV)  For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
 
(1 Cor 14:29 KJV)  Let the prophets speak two or three, and let the other judge.
 
(Col 2:16 KJV)  Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
 
(Rom 14:3 KJV)  Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.
 
(Heb 10:30 KJV)  For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
 
(Heb 13:4 KJV)  Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
 
(James 4:11 KJV)  Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
 
(James 5:9 KJV)  Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.
 
(1 Pet 4:5 KJV)  Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
 
(Rev 6:10 KJV)  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
 
(Rev 19:11 KJV)  And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.   
    
    
(Rev 6:10 KJV)  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? (1 Cor 10:33 KJV)  Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved. 

(1 Cor 14:40 KJV)  Let all things be done decently and in order. and “Whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus” (Colossians 3:17).

Proverbs 6:16-19 clearly also declares: “There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: (1) haughty eyes, (2) a lying tongue, (3) hands that shed innocent blood, (4) a heart that devises wicked schemes, (5) feet that are quick to rush into evil, (6) a false witness who pours out lies, and (7) a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.”

(1 Cor 6:9 KJV)  Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,10   Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

(Gal 5:19 KJV)  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

However, these lists are not a complete list of unacceptable personal sins nor is it  fully as to  what many  people still do hold are the  the “seven deadly sins.”

Most people can understand that the common list of the “seven deadly sins” are also rather: pride, envy, gluttony, lust, anger, greed, and sloth. Although each of these personal acts are undeniably still also sins,  but  they are never given the description of “the seven deadly sins” in the Bible. The common traditional list of the “seven deadly sins”  are no more “deadly” than any other unrepentant  sin. All unrepentant sin results in death, note importantly not just physical death, but spiritual death, for all unrepentant sins can have negative personal consequence, even on one’s spiritual growth, it prevents them from going on with the lord in a deeper manner in fact,    Praise be to God, that through Jesus Christ, all of our sins, including also bullying, abuse, slander, gossip, and the “seven deadly sins,” can all now be forgiven. 

(1 John 1:9 KJV)  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10  If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

(1 John 2:1 KJV)  My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: 2  And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 3  And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4  He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5  But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6   He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.7 Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning. 8 Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.9  He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now.10  He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and there is none occasion of stumbling in him.11  But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

(Eccl 7:20 KJV)  For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

(1 John 3:6 KJV)  Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.

(1 John 5:18 KJV)  We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.

The Grace of God is still  not a license to sin.

Galatians 6:7-10: Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh shall from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit shall from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary. So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all men, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.
I passed by the field of the sluggard, And by the vineyard of the man lacking in sense; And behold, it was completely overgrown with thistles, Its surface was covered with nettles, And its stone wail was broken down. (Prov. 24:30-31)

The unrepentant sins of any person, nation  has next still God’s negative corrections.. or punishments. The true  believer who sins in his walk with the Lord quickly regrets it, confesses it early, sincerely wishes to never do it again and does seek  to appropriate God’s power and grace to avoid it again. The false believer does not renounce his or her sin. The “sin unto death” is deliberate, willful, continuous, unrepentant sin. While God, in His grace, can allow  His children to sin without immediately fully punishing them. Next  there does comes a point when God will no longer allow any believer to continue in unrepentant sin. When this point is reached, God can sometimes decides to punish a Christian  even to the point of taking his or her life. Sins of grieving the holy spirit, human rights abuses can fall into this category.

Galatians 6 1 Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. 2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.  3 For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.  4 But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.  5 For each one shall bear his own load. Be Generous and Do Good

(Eccl 7:16 KJV)  Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?
 
(Eccl 7:17 KJV)  Be not over much wicked, neither be thou foolish: why shouldest thou die before thy time?
 
(Luke 12:3 KJV)  Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.
 
(Mat 10:27 KJV)  What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. 28  And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
 
(Mat 18:1 KJV)  At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? 2  And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3  And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4  Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5  And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6  But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7  Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! 8  Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. 9  And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. 10  Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. 11  For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. 
 
(Mat 23:11 KJV)  But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. (Mat 23:12 KJV)  And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
 
(Luke 11:49 KJV)  Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
 
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things; and the God of peace shall be with you. (Phil. 4:8-9) 
 
The Non Christians rather too often deliberately do like to believe in the lie that God does not exists, or that God is dead, for  that way hopefully they will  not give a personal accountability next for all their sins, wrong doings to God. They are dreaming only. They will give a full account, so will we all.  Many a Christian even  have also a similar false doctrine towards their  sins, false reasons not to not to repent, they call it falsely the dispensation of, the age of grace, and they still lie when they say God will merely next forgive all of their  unrepentant sins or deliberate ones. God is not mocked for what one sows will they  reap..

* It is estimated that nearly one in three  adults have high blood pressure. People from lower socioeconomic backgrounds who suffer a heart attack come to the emergency department more often, are less likely to be treated aggressively and have higher mortality rates a year after heart attack, says new University of Alberta research that has important implications for access to cardiac care. If blood pressure is not brought back to the normal range it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure. Magnesium, Cayenne Pepper, Onions, Garlic, Bananas   have also been demonstrated to be effective in bringing down high blood pressure. Eat also a food diet high in fiber, fresh fruit, more vegeatables  and food always low in sugar, and low in salt.  Avoid the negative side effects of today’s medicines such as Diuretics, Beta Blockers, Alpha Blockers and the related abusive, extortionate, crushing financial costs.

Lies by the liberal news media

  

 Note this terminator has helped a lot of people to get a better job by firing them But i still can understand some people wrongfully now opposing it.

   
When I was  busy working as a professional engineer  I personally  had no time for or a real concept of how bad the real world is with it’s much too many liars, thugs, bullies, abusers, distorters, racists , thieves, now too.. and someone how next I could not help but encountered many of them, but by I had by now learned how to best deal with them.  It is a two fold approach, first the Public exposure, the pen is mightier than the sword, and a good name is worth more than any silver and gold. But next also there is rightful demand, a need  for their  termination of emeploybnment, their real prosecution of the guilty, bad persons.  Both of these approaches personally so works best, for everyone’s’ betterment. Ideally and rightfully I  do not hesitate to recommend any crook, bad minister, bad pastor, bad news reporter as well to be fired , terminated from his our her  job.  Sadly there are many people in this world who are hatred mongers, they have a false persistent agendas against some others, and they for many wrong reasons now wrongfully pursue much of their time in these matters now too foolishly and unwisely. Too often they the bad people firstly proclaim themselves as angels of lights, good Samaritans try to help others, but rather it too often seems they are merely trying to gain an advantage over others, and to promote themselves in some powerful, key job, economic, superior positions under these false agendas, disguise’s in all kinds of social groups now too, the religious, political, cultural, governmental. Now I really hate these types of snakes and I rightfully do not hesitate to expose them once I encounter them.
 
Now we all know that in north America we all do really have freedom of religion, freedom of choice, freedom of speech, the right to be hard now as well.. Some people are now falsely abusing these right to promote a false war against a particular Christian group, the Pentecostal ones, or even the Catholic ones, etc. When I see this kind of unacceptable personal behavior I too do not accept it but do loudly object to it to all and do ask these hate mongrels be immediately fired, put in jail as well. No matter who they are now too.
  
“Sarah Palin losing her sway over Christian voters
http://communities.canada.com/vancouversun/blogs/thesearch/default.aspx
 
The Sarah Palin effect, which brought evangelicals and other Christians rushing on to the Republican wagon when her nomination was announced, is now fading. In some cases fast.
 
A poll by the respected Pew Forum has found that some white evangelicals are losing their excitement about the political coupling of John McCain and Palin, who has deep Pentecostal roots in Alaska. White evangelicals, the crucial group that got George W. Bush into the White House in the past two elections, are beginning to edge away from the Republicans. Their support has dropped from 74 to 67 per cent in the past week or so.
Meanwhile, pollsters are beginning to predict that mainline Protestants, who tend to be more liberal than evangelicals, are moving firmly to Barack Obama and Joe Biden. The Democrat contender is now attracting 48 per cent of mainline Christians’ votes. As well, non-Hispanic Catholics have also switched and are now leaning more to Obama-Biden than McCain-Palin.

Comment by todd — October 26, 2008 @ 8:13 pm 

Thanks for your input Todd, this is the second time you posted back to me on my blog, unusual for a news reporter to comment on my blog too.https://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/08/30/sarah-palin-already-has-energized-conservative-religious-leaders/#comment-1746#comment-1746

>>A poll by the respected Pew Forum has found that some white evangelicals are losing their excitement about the political coupling of John McCain and Palin

My personal straight forward, honest, personal summation, experiences of Politics, dealing with you, the Vancouver Sun as well, and pollsters… they are statistically just liars, biased, people with hidden agendas.. and I told you that now in writing too many times too.. I rightfully have no respect for what you write still about Christians, evangelicals and so do many others now too.

what about the polls that show 30 percent of white people will also not vote for a black persons? racisms exists in the churches and police stations now too.

And my own experiences with Canadian liberal news media, liberals, liberal politicians are so blind they had undeniably now underestimated the starch of the all of evangelical churches, who had themselves formed the Reform, Alliance, and the new Conservative party, and next had wiped out both the old Conservatives under Brian Mulroney, and the Liberals under Jean Chrétien and Paul Martin.. I saw it coming , wrote about it 2 decades ago, but you did don’t see it coming. Do get an honest job now..

But the fact that Sarah Palin is getting now so much free publicity attention even from the liberals, democrats it all next simply means when I see the devil breathing on her back, she must be doing something really really good

Any possible Christian support of Obama is another liberal, democratic, news media false spins.. just like the devil often dos the same thing.. I read many of their emotional, gushy, lying, slanderous , sewage posts, opinions, but they are spins, lies and not facts and the US news media has lost loads of credibity, CNN especially the big liars, in their slanted election presentations, and that fact is not unnoticed.. but that was the same complaint thing they had often said about the Canadian News media, CBC, under the liberals who lost next.. wow!

And basically too no true, real practicing Christian would support the clearly anti Christ Obama.. who does supports abortions, gay marriages, alcohol as well..

My site statistics undeniably do show Sarah Palin is the most read topic in the last few months of over 100 different subjects, topics on my 6 related blogs, and that support I encounter is the tip of the iceberg only.. 80 percent of the posts read are about her.

Even the Canadian PM Stephen Harper, and the federal election. Bilden, McCain, Obama do not get 10 percent of her attention too.. the undeniably crooked Christian Missionary alliance church got just as much attention now, 10 percent  as they all did as well.. note this a new runner up in reading POPULARITY is the bad RCMP, bad Traffic cops of Alberta next.

As I also wrote often to thousands, Canadian politicians and news editors too now.. The truth about the ungodly Pentecostals bashings, wars against the Pentecostals on the net, even by the Vancouver Sun now too, or anyone else… is that I also still do not have to accept it or put up with it still too,  it is  an unacceptable perversity, human rights abuse, immoral. And it better stop otherwise I too will have to write to a lot more people about it too.. very much more..

many jump to conclusions, make opinions, before hearing all of the facts

       
 
How many times in the last decade as we seem to know too often has the news media  supported a  specific candidate who next had clearly turned out to be a really bad choice? and why was that?
 
Are they the news media, news reporters now still really the same even now like many of us, basically,  as well? Blind, they do not have all the facts before them honestly presented and viewed now too?
 
How many political leaders themselves now were able to successfully predict, or to see the election’s political outcome too next? and where even most of them too   wrong in their own predictions? Most of then too it seems.. and why was that? Biassed, or ignorant of reality? So how can even they lead all of others next still? Pretenders or Imposters?
 
Too many of us still wrongfully jump to conclusions, make biased, unsound opinions, note this even the news reporters and news media now included,  all made before we now have even heard all of the facts, and this is till really unacceptable, very, very dangerous too.. such an approach it can be really harmful.
 
THE DAY BEFORE THE RECENT CANADIAN ELECTIONS I SPOKE TO MANY VOTERS, WHO ON THEIR OWN LET ME KNOW HOW THEY HAD CERTAINLY THOUGH THE FEDERAL LECTIONS WOULD COME OUT.. AND WHY THEY HAD VOTED FOR THEIR CANDIDATE OF CHOICE. NONE OF THE CHOICES I HEARD WERE SENSIBLE, RATIONAL EVEN.. nor any of their own political  predictions.. many persons had told me their candidates were going to win, but they lost instead.. In reality even few people had tried to predict next a minority government, but I had said before that was what it next was going to be. And why now too? Even in writing. For I take a balanced view, and I look at the realistic facts.
 
Here related is something I have known long time before, most people are like dumb sheep, they are too easily, too often  swayed by bad politicians lies. And too many of us we seem to all agree that most politicians are the same nearly these days, they are all liars who tell us what we want to hear but do not keep their promises generally next anyway now.
 
Now these days I am  often hearing many persons give their  reasons as to why they personally do want Obama to win, these still are just all personal feelings, for generally they have nothing to do with reality, or real facts.
 
Some people say Obama is a better leader, a better choice, a better President over John McCain but this all is an unproven fact still. This is just mere personal speculation and not a real fact you can even take to the bank. For in reality how well does anyone  still know the reality about  Obama? Can they now even afford taking  the risk?

 and how much of the basic facts about him now is even true?

In reality Genuine Born Again, Evangelical, Christians are total abstainers from smoking, drugs, alcohol, cheating, lying, stealing, tax evasions, pornography, or rather all personal vices, Impairments, gay sex now too.  
 
 Clearly ** The Bible teaches against drinking alcoholic beverages.
 
The liars and the demons  of course will say other wise.

One thing is still very clear the too often pretentious news media and  the too often pretentious  politicians are not actively doing their jobs in helping people to be informed, having the proper facts to be able to make the proper decisions, take the proper actions, so do thank God for the existence of the internet, no matter how imperfect now it itself is as well.. it offers now at least some valid truths to the discerning readers.

Canada – Harper failed again in an attempt to win majority government

A Conservative loser is still a big loser 

 

Reality today is that  besides cheap words, more likely broken promises, useless   Canada’s  pretentious Ostrich Conservative Finance Minister  Flaherty still presently offers no viable, real, effective solutions to help the thousands already laid off, and Canada’s present economic meltdown, the people also who will lose their homes due to foreclosures too.

 
More minority government.  Conservatives win about 37 percent of the votes, a one percent gain only  since 2006. Liberals win 26 percent, down 4 percent. Liberals have worst showing in 20 years., BQ win 10 percent-  no change-, and  NDP win 18 percent of the votes , another 1 percent gain . But the NDP made significant gains mostly in Ontario. Lowest voter turnout in history, for $290-million federal election

Majority Is Seen as Unlikely for Canada’s Conservatives   October 14, 2008  OTTAWA — Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s gamble that forcing Canada into its third election in four years would give him firm control over Parliament seemed to be falling short on Tuesday.  Polls leading into the vote had indicated that his Conservatives would return to power, but that they would again find themselves relying on support from the opposition to get legislation passed.  And early returns from Atlantic Canada, where polls closed first, showed the Conservatives leading or elected in 21 parliamentary districts, to the Liberals’ 28 seats. The Conservatives were shut out in Newfoundland and Labrador.  But the Atlantic provinces were not expected to back Mr. Harper’s party, and Danny Williams, the Conservative who is prime minister of Newfoundland, had vigorously campaigned against the federal wing of his party because of a dispute over oil and gas rights. After taking power in 2006, Mr. Harper set a fixed election date, an idea introduced with fanfare but abandoned last month when he called this election.  It appeared that he was relying on the strong economy, as well as disarray in the opposition Liberal Party, to secure the parliamentary majority he was denied in the last election, in January 2006.  Mr. Harper was blindsided, however, by the turmoil that has swept international financial markets. Canada’s banks have avoided the troubles experienced of late in the United States and Britain, but the Toronto Stock Exchange has gyrated with its counterparts elsewhere. Mr. Harper made an undesirable situation worse for his party by projecting a nonchalant attitude.  During a debate, he found himself on the defensive after saying, “What Canadians are worried about right now is not the job situation, not losing their home like in the U.S.” Their concerns, he added, were limited to their investments. Later, in a television interview, he suggested that the world’s economic problems might not be all bad. “I think there are probably some gains to be made in the stock market,” he said. Canadians do not vote directly for a political party or the prime minister, but elect a local member of the House of Commons, the lower house of Parliament. For Mr. Harper to achieve a majority in Parliament, it was essential for him to improve his party’s standing in Ontario and Quebec, which control 181 of the 308 seats.  The current economic uncertainty has been a particular concern in parts of Ontario where industries rely heavily on exports to the United States. A rise in the value of the Canadian dollar over the past two years made many of those factories much less competitive. The economic slowdown in the United States has aggravated the problem. Peter Donolo, a former official in a Liberal government who now is an executive of the Strategic Counsel, a polling firm, said the perception of Mr. Harper in Quebec reversed during the campaign, from a 60 percent approval rating to a 60 percent disapproval rating. “The support just evaporated,” Mr. Donolo said. “He chased away Quebec votes kind of offhandedly.” French-speaking Quebecers reacted poorly to suggestions by Mr. Harper that artists were members of the elite who spent too much time at government-financed galas.  A proposal to stiffen penalties for young people who commit crimes also found little following in the province.   The New Democratic Party, supported by organized labor and led by Jack Layton, steadily rose in most polls during the campaign.  http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/15/world/americas/15canada.html?ref=world

 MONTREAL — Liberal Leader Stephane Dion found himself an unlikely ally Friday as he dealt with the aftermath of a botched English-language interview in Halifax — Bloc Quebecois Leader Gilles Duceppe. Duceppe came to Dion’s defence after the Conservatives manhandled the Liberal leader over the garbled interview and declared him unfit to lead the country. Dion tripped up during the interview with CTV Atlantic on Thursday and excerpts of his linguistic fumbles were later broadcast despite assurances made to the Liberals the flubs would not be aired. The Conservatives wasted no time lambasting Dion, with Leader Stephen Harper linking Dion’s language woes to his ability to lead. But Duceppe called Harper’s comments a “low blow” during a radio interview in Montreal. The Bloc leader says Harper’s comment only illustrates the “double standard” that exists in Canadian politics that requires French-speaking politicians to be fluently bilingual while English-speaking politicians can get away with mangling French. “I think it’s just unacceptable to criticize Mr. Dion’s English,” Duceppe said.  “I think when we compare Mr. Dion’s English with the French of other English leaders or ministers . . . I think he’s getting better.” http://www.edmontonsun.com/canadavotes/news/2008/10/10/7047636.html

New Harper image didn’t cut it with Atlantic vote
TheChronicleHerald.ca, Canada –  By MARILLA STEPHENSON Staff Columnist Atlantic Canadians slammed the door against Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s second serious crack at a majority

Untill all parties start to care about all the voters this predicted fiasco repeats itself

 and it was really dumb to make a person  a Liberal chief too who cannot speak english.

And all persons are merely dreaming that the new Parliament will next usher in an era of co-operation between both the governing party and its opponents as long as Stephen Harper is around. That is not his style for he clearly and wrongfully loves to be a bully, to body check others.  And Harper now will clearly have to endure the successes and failures of minority government again by his own poor contributions to it .

Conservatives humbled, they still would still need opposition party support to govern. Canada’s third minority government in four years. Harper’s Conservatives defeated a Liberal minority government in the January 2006 election.  The Bloc Quebecois won about two-thirds of the Quebec province’s 75 seats on Tuesday as it repeated its 2006 success and kept its stranglehold on the province.  Canadian International Trade Minister Michael Fortier lost his bid to win a seat in Parliament in Tuesday’s election, initial projections showed. As expected, the Liberal’s star candidate, 36-year-old Justin Trudeau, son of the late prime minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, was elected in his riding of Papineau, giving the party a boost to its sagging fortunes in Quebec. Disgraced former foreign minister, Maxime Bernier was easily re-elected in the Beauce with 63 per cent of the vote, despite being embroiled in the Julie Couillard affair.   Fortier, a member of the unelected Senate upper chamber, was trailing badly behind a candidate from the separatist Bloc Quebecois in the French-speaking province of Quebec. Whether he makes it back into government is now in considerable doubt.  Voters shut out the Conservatives from two of Canada’s major cities for a second consecutive election last night, when the Tories failed to secure a single seat in either Toronto or Montreal.. The Liberals have elected or are leading in 21 Toronto ridings, and the NDP in two, while the Conservative party has been shut out of Canada’s largest city yet again. NDP got one seat in Montreal and the Liberals got 15. Almost all of the past Conservative Cabinet Ministers were re-elected. New Democrats across Canada had heightened expectations for the elections on Monday night that were dashed when the ballots were finally counted. Liberal Bob Rae   elected twice in the same year. Rae took the riding in a byelection on March 17 and was declared the winner tonight after about a fifth of the polls were counted. Michael Ignatieff also took his riding of Etobicoke-Lakeshore with about 47 per cent of the vote, with 50 of 261 polls reporting.  Rae and Ignatieff are considered front-runners if Stephane Dion’s leadership is challenged. Political observers have said Dion could face some pressure to resign if the Liberals fail to win about 90 seats, The Liberals are expected  to take about 76 seats.  Former Liberal leadership candidate Martha Hall Findlay took her seat in Willowdale and Gerard Kennedy took Parkdale-High Park from the NDP. Nova Scotia has elected its first Independent MP since 1874. Federal Liberals all but faded from Manitoba’s political landscapeTuesday, clinging to one seat following a fierce fight with the Conservatives and the NDP. Saskatchewan was awash in Tory blue Tuesday night with voters in the province strongly backing their incumbent Conservative MPs. Tories   make almost a clean sweep of all 14 ridings in southern Alberta – Big deal! They make enough noise about it still too.The NDP challenger Linda Duncan  in Edmonton-Strathcona bumped off four-time incumbent Tory Rahim Jaffer, preventing a Conservative sweep of Alberta. The Tories now hold 22 of 36 B.C. seats, up five from the last election.   They took ridings from both the New Democrats and Liberals but boosted their share mostly at Liberal expense. The Liberals went from seven to five seats but managed to hang on to three out of four core ridings. The New Democrats won in nine ridings, down one from their result in the 2006 election.   In the 2006 election, the Liberals sent 20 MPs to Ottawa from Atlantic Canada, while the Conservatives won nine seats and the NDP three. At press time the Liberals were elected or leading in 16 seats, the Conservatives had a small boost to 11 seats, the NDP had four and Bill Casey chalked one up in the Independent column.Voters in Cumberland-Colchester-Musquodoboit Valley are sending ex Conservative Bill Casey back to Ottawa for a fifth consecutive term.  The longtime MP made headlines last June when he voted against his party on a budget bill, saying it denied Nova Scotia benefits promised in an offshore deal. He was promptly kicked out of the Conservative caucus. Gerry Ritz, the federal agriculture minister who came under fire for cracking jokes about listeriosis, has reclaimed his seat in Saskatchewan. Canadians have elected a record number of women  68 to the House of Commons.

 

 

 

“It is historical fact, reinforced again this week, that Quebeckers have always voted for a party led by a Quebecker when confronted with a choice between such a party and one led by someone from outside the province… It is always possible that this pattern of not preferring one of their own could be broken, but it hasn’t been for 141 years….  It is also an  historical fact, reinforced again this week, that the rest of Canada  have always voted for a party led by a English speaking person when confronted with a choice between such a party and one led by someone from outside the province who cannot speak English properly, something the dumb Liberal party falsely had overlooked…  And after the Tories’ poor showing in the province in Tuesday’s election, many Quebec Conservatives believe Mr. Harper needs the Premier more than Mr. Charest – who is running high in the polls before a possible spring election – needs him.  The criticism has allowed Mr. Charest to position himself as a defender of Quebec’s interests who doesn’t owe anything to the regime in Ottawa.” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/
 
Still  the Quebec province could not remain silent on key planks of the Conservative election platform, such as life sentences for young offenders and cuts to arts programs.

 

 

 

The Quebec vote strongly suggests Harper still doesn’t have an innate feel for the aspirations of that province or he really does not care to have one.  “The Bloc got another break when Stephen Harper made a statement pushing for teens who commit serious crimes to serve jail sentences in adult prisons. Mr. Duceppe slammed the Prime Minister for delivering “fresh meat” to prison pedophiles and sending young criminals to “the university of crime.”” http://www.nationalpost.com/news/canada/election-2008/story.html?id=882332
 
Now really How can a now Alberta, redneck that was personally now even raised in Montreal, Quebec,  now get it so wrong, did he accidently offend the people of Quebec or did he do so knowingly because he not care if it did cause he was trying to please so hard his hypocritical, Conservative rednecks of Alberta, who do emphasize now wrongfully now the letter of   the law over the  spirit of the law.. for now when there is an increase of  problem children, juvenile diligent  it is the parents firstly who have to take the majority of the blame and not the children. Surely the self professing Christian evangelical, Alliance church,  Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper knows this from his own personal Bible readings? (Prov  22:6 KJV)  Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Matt 25:30 And throw the good-for-nothing servant into the outer darkness; there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.
Matt 25:31 When the Son of Man comes in His glory (His majesty and splendor), and all the {holy} angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.
Matt 25:32 All nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them [the people] from one another as a shepherd separates his sheep from the goats;
Matt 25:33 And He will cause the sheep to stand at His right hand, but the goats at His left.
Matt 25:34 Then the King will say to those at His right hand, Come, you blessed of My Father [you favored of God and appointed to eternal salvation], inherit (receive as your own) the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
Matt 25:35 For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you brought Me together with yourselves {and} welcomed {and} entertained {and} lodged Me,
Matt 25:36 I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me with help {and} ministering care, I was in prison and you came to see Me.
Matt 25:37 Then the just {and} upright will answer Him, Lord, when did we see You hungry and gave You food, or thirsty and gave You something to drink?
Matt 25:38 And when did we see You a stranger and welcomed {and} entertained You, or naked and clothed You?
Matt 25:39 And when did we see You sick or in prison and came to visit You?
Matt 25:40 And the King will reply to them, Truly I tell you, in so far as you did it for one of the least [in the estimation of men] of these My brethren, you did it for Me.
Matt 25:41 Then He will say to those at His left hand, Begone from Me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels!
Matt 25:42 For I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink,
Matt 25:43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome Me {and} entertain Me, I was naked and you did not clothe Me, I was sick and in prison and you did not visit Me with help {and} ministering care.
Matt 25:44 Then they also [in their turn] will answer, Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?
Matt 25:45 And He will reply to them, Solemnly I declare to you, in so far as you failed to do it for the least [in the estimation of men] of these, you failed to do it for Me.
Matt 25:46 Then they will go away into eternal punishment, but those who are just {and} upright {and} in right standing with God into eternal life.
