A Canadian Christian school has been ordered by a Public School Board that it partners with to CEASE reading or studying “any Scripture that is considered to be offensive to particular individuals.” Targeted Biblical verses include those which speak against homosexuality, fornication, adultery, idolatry, and witchcraft. The Battle River School Division in Alberta, Canada, directed Cornerstone Christian Academy to refrain from teaching on any Biblical Scriptures which the board has determined violates Alberta’s “human rights” legislation.
Parents in Camrose, Alberta, and nearby towns send their children to Cornerstone because they desire Bible study to be integrated into their children’s curriculum. The vision statement for the School states that “students will have a good working knowledge of the Bible as a foundation to their education.” Unfortunately, the liberal Public School Board is dead set on changing that.
The Board trustees met Thursday to discuss the Holy Bible verses which they find to be “offensive” in the School’s parent-student handbook. Some Biblical passages which have already been forcibly removed, upon the orders of the School Board, refer to God’s displeasure with homosexual lifestyles, sexual promiscuity, and occult practices. 1st Corinthians 6:9 was removed from the handbook, which reads –
“Know you 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, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God”.
Galatians 5:19-21 was also removed, which states –
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 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.”
While the School unfortunately caved to the demands, and agreed to drop the “offensive” passages from their handbook, that was not enough for the Godless School Board. They are now ordering the School to remove the passages from anywhere in the school, whether on paper or given through verbal teaching. So, if I understand correctly, the School Board is actually ordering a Christian School to TEAR PAGES OUT OF THE HOLY BIBLE. This is downright demonic!
The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF), which is representing the Christian school in Court, says that the School Board is bullying Christians. Ya’ think?! Their spokesman said, “BRSD has directly violated the warning of the Supreme Court of Canada not to interfere in religion or beliefs. BRSD is legally obligated to respect the parental choices expressed through the Society [Christian school], concerning the religious education of their children at CCA.”
The Justice Centre’s president, John Carpay, said that “the Christian School will not let a Public School Board dictate which parts of the Bible are ‘acceptable’ and which are ‘not’”. AMEN to that guy! If you never thought that you would live to see the day where Governments would censor the Word of God in our Society, even criminalize it.. WAKE UP! Those days are HERE.
If this news wasn’t shocking enough, there is much more anti-Christian news coming out of Canada as of late. In Ontario, a law has recently passed which gives the Government the right to TAKE AWAY children from parents that refuse to accept their child’s “chosen gender identity or expression”. So if a Christian parent tells their son, though he “believes he is a girl”, that God made him a male, the Government can TAKE their son away. The Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017, also know as Bill 89, was passed in Ontario by a vote of 63 to 23.
Dr. Michael Brown explained the dangers that the new Law poses to Bible-based families in Canada. He wrote, “If little Johnny is convinced he’s a girl and his parents don’t affirm this, he could tell his teachers at school, who would then report this to the government. Soon enough, there’s a knock at your door, and government agents are taking your son – yes, your very own child – and putting him in a new environment where he can live as Jane. As nightmarish as this scenario sounds, it is now the law.”
As if all of this was not a big enough concern for Canadian Christians, let alone all Christians today, just wait… there’s more. Today, Canada’s Senate passed Justin Trudeau’s Transgender Rights Bill unamended by a vote of 67 to 11. The bill adds “gender identity” to Canada’s Human Rights Code and to the CRIMINAL Code’s hate crime section. Critics warn that under Bill C-16, Holy Bible believers who deny “gender theory” could be charged with hate crimes, fined, forced to undergo anti-bias training, and even JAILED.
I’ve warned for years that the Criminalization of Christianity is coming to the United States, and it has now reached our borders to the North. With the LGBT Agenda currently being forced upon Americans, it may only be a matter of time before disagreement becomes a CRIMINAL OFFENSE. God help us. Jack Fonseca of Campaign Life Toronto said that Bill C-16 will be used to attack Christian beliefs.
He said, “Mark my words, this law will not be used as some sort of ‘shield’ to defend vulnerable transsexuals, but rather as a weapon with which to bludgeon people of faith and free-thinking Canadians who refuse to deny truth”. Another critic of the Bill said, “If you try to disavow the gender theory, you can be brought before the Human Rights Commission for misgendering or potentially find yourself guilty of a hate crime. To sum it up, we are going to have government-mandated speech. Those who refuse to go along could be brought before the federal tribunal.”
Wow. It will be a sad scary day in America, if the Laws or declarations of the Government ever take precedence over the Word of Almighty God. If we’re watching it play out before our eyes in Canada today, don’t deceive yourself to think that it can’t happen here. It will only take one more far-left liberal President like Barack Obama to make it a reality. God willing we will be raptured long before that happens.
The reason Canada is experiencing this all-out war on Holy Bible believers is because they elected Obama’s bosom buddy, Justin Trudeau, as their Prime Minister. Trudeau has called Evangelical Christians “the WORST part of Canadian society”. At the same time, he has stated that “ISIS supporters have the right to defend themselves”. Also, during a recent wave of bomb threats against Jews in Canada, he said absolutely nothing. Last year, he was one of the first world leaders to ever take part in a Gay Pride march.
America was Hell for Christians under Barack Hussein Obama, and I think it’s safe to say that our brothers and sisters to the North feel the exact same under Trudeau. We need to pray for Godly leaders to be raised up, not only in our Country, but in Canada, and ALL Western Nations of the world. When one powerful nation forgets God and descends into Tyranny, it doesn’t take long for other nations to follow suit. Pray for Canada’s Christians and Jews in these troubling times, and pray also that America will never be led by a Biblically-hostile President ever again!
