  1. I have already explained some of that. I doubt that anyone could just go out as a vigilante and kill someone at the time of Leviticus was in force. It would only be the leaders of Israel who were in charge and would have to likely follow certain principles of justice to find someone guilty. But the point is which I already explained is that only applied in that period of history because Israel was God's specially chosen people and laid down certain laws for them because they were expected not to be the same as the heathen nations around them (the Canaanites for example). There is nothing to indicate things will change from the way it is now in the world. Leviticus was for the people of Israel who lived 3,500 years ago and that system is not coming back in the present age. We are not part of Israel. We are part of the Gentile nations. The Bible does prophesy that Christ will return anytime and take the believers out of the world and that will be followed by seven years of tribulation in the world and one world government of the anti-Christ. That will be followed by Christ returning and establishing a thousand year millennium reign on earth with the believers. Do you wish to be part of the believers that the Lord will take out of the world any time and live forever with him? That is the important issue.
  2. This is what one person's commentary on the laws in Leviticus says: "Chapter 20 Chapter twenty, now God begins to get a little heavier. In chapter twenty God goes over some of the things He dealt with in chapter eighteen, only in chapter twenty telling that the violators of these things should be put to death. I know a lot of these sob sisters are crying out against capital punishment. But if we practice capital punishment as the Bible says, we wouldn't have near the crime problem that we have today. I don't know what's gone wrong with our judicial system, but we are far more interested in protecting the rights of the criminal than we are of the innocent victims. There's something awfully stupid about our whole system that releases the rapists, and the murderers and all back, and the kidnappers, back on the streets to repeat their crimes over and over again. Something stupid when you can't bring up the past patterns of a man's life for a present crime that he's committed. The man is showing himself to be a habitual child molester, or a habitual rapist and all, then he should be dealt with as a habitual child molester. As far as I'm concerned better to-I'll pull the switch if they need someone. He can ask God to forgive him, and God will forgive him, and he'll go to heaven; he'll be a lot better off. But we'll be a lot better off too, and a lot safer, and our children will be a lot safer walking in the streets. I wouldn't have to worry nearly so much in sending them off to the store. We are living in a crazy, corrupt world that's gone wild. It's because we've forsaken the law of God. We've got a bunch of sob sisters, pantywaists. Romaine could tell you about them better than I could. If a father sacrificed his child to Molech, he was to be put to death. [Don't mess with him.] If he is worshiping the god Molech and in so doing offers his child as a living sacrifice to Molech, kill him, put him to death. Stone him with stones, for I will set my face against that man and will cut him off from among the people. And if you in any wise hide your eyes from him who has sacrificed his children to Molech, and you don't kill him, then God will set his face against you, and against your family, to cut you off, for those that go a-whoring after Molech, from among the people. And if a person seeks after those that have the familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a-whoring after them, I will set my face against them. Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God. And ye shall keep my statutes: I am the Lord which has set you apart. Every one that curses his father or mother shall surely be put to death: [That's heavy.] A man that commits adultery with another man's wife, both of them shall be put to death. A man that lies with his father's wife, those of the incestuous relationships were to be put to death. Homosexuals [verse thirteen] were to be put to death, bestiality a person was to be put to death; both for men and women ( Leviticus 20:2-15 )." Leviticus 20:13 - Verse-by-Verse Bible Commentary - StudyLight.org It is a fact that the criminal justice system is far more interested in protecting the rights of criminals than protecting the victims. Twelve people on the Cree nation were stabbed to death in September by a known dangerous offender let out on parole. A police officer in Ontario was killed by another dangerous offender let out on bail a couple months ago. These are facts nobody can deny.
  3. Leviticus does cause some people difficulty simply because they think of the God of the Bible as treating everyone in every age exactly the same way. In some ways things are the same in all ages. God looks upon certain sins just as serious as he took them in Old Testament times. Perhaps the punishment for such sins has changed because there were reasons for the death penalty in the time of Leviticus which are not the same today. God dealt with Israel in a special way at that time in history. Dispensational theology teaches that the Bible is divided up into different dispensations. That means that God dealt with people differently in the different ages. He dealt with Israel differently at the time of Leviticus than he does with people today because we are in a different dispensation. The age several thousand years ago was called the Dispensation of the Law; today we live in the Dispensation of Grace, which began 2,000 years ago. God specifically chose Israel as his special people, something else many people don't understand. When he chose them as his special people he gave them the laws that Moses received and the special laws in Leviticus which were very strict. People today often cannot understand that. Because Israel was specially chosen as his special people, they were not to live in sin and worship false gods as the heathen nations around them did. So he imposed very serious penalties for disobedience. One of them was the death penalty. For example, Leviticus 20:2 KJV says if anyone offered his child to Molech, he shall be put to death. The heathen nations did offer their children as a sacrifice to the false god Molech. God was enforcing his law against this with Israel, his chosen people. God had his reasons for doing this. The same penalty applied to homosexuality in Leviticus 20:13 KJV "Moloch, also spelled Molech, a Canaanite deity associated in biblical sources with the practice of child sacrifice. The name derives from combining the consonants of the Hebrew melech (“king”) with the vowels of boshet (“shame”), the latter often being used in the Old Testament as a variant name for the popular god Baal (“Lord”)." The Canaanites offered their children as a sacrifice in the fire of Molech. The death penalty seems to me because God chose Israel as his special people and he said in connection with this: " 3 And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name. " Leviticus 20:3 KJV So God demanded and expected his chosen people not to defile his sanctuary (Israel had a sanctuary or special place where God was present) and to profane his holy name.
  4. " The salvation of men and their eternal destiny in heaven or hell rests on question as to whether the Bible is the inspired, preserved and accurate word of God or not. Because of the Bible being God's word to us as to how we may know Him and receive eternal life , throughout history there have many attacks on the authenticity of the Bible. Some are open and direct and others more subtle in seeking to discredit and cast a shadow over the Bible as being God's word. Clearly there is a common source for each of these attacks and that source is Satan himself who seeks to destroy men by destroying mankind's only source of knowledge of God and redemption from sin. Unregenerate and unbelieving men who are rejecting God, in the pride of their own selfish and corrupted minds, think they do a great service by criticizing the Bible. How sad and tragic is it that a man would personally reject God's love for them and His salvation and then seek to rob others of God's truth. The Lord gave a solemn warning to those who would tamper with His word in Revelation 22;18-19: How We Got the Bible - How God superintended the writing of His word and preserved it. (bible-truth.org) (Rev. 22:18-19). " 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book." Those are the the second and third last verses of the Bible. Extremely important. One's eternal destiny hangs on those words. Remember the Bible was probably the biggest selling book in history. It has been translated into many languages. Millions upon million of people acquired it over the last number of centuries. There is a reason for that.
  5. False. Only skeptics and heretics question the accuracy of the King James Bible. There are many corrupt modern Bible translations in English, but the King James Bible is 100% accurate and trustworthy. There is a vast amount of information to prove that. "How We Got the Bible A seven lesson course on how the Lord gave and preserved His Word through the centuries. By Cooper Abrams" How We Got the Bible - How God superintended the writing of His word and preserved it. (bible-truth.org) It is easy to throw out one-liner sentences with no proof and it is easy to simply refuse to read any articles to learn the facts, such as the above website. I have even run into some church leaders and elders that automatically reject any information such as the article in the link above. That's just the way the corrupt world is.
  6. Because it is the only source of truth. You have not given any other source so I must assume you have nothing. Truth does not fall from the sky, or in some book that someone wrote unless it originates from the Bible. When I am talking about truth, I am talking specifically about moral truth and moral history of mankind, and how God created mankind and eternal truths about mankind. These are things that the Bible is the authority on.
  7. I never said you should do anything to accommodate me. I simply state the truth as I believe it. You refused to accept it. That's entirely your choice. But I would ask then what is your guide or foundation for thinking and living? The world has suffered wars, revolutions, crime, divisions, since the beginning. The 20th century which you might say is the modern age had the worst, most devastating wars in history. Communist revolutions in the 20th century killed 100 million people. Fascism killed tens of millions of people in Europe. Yet you say the Bible is a flawed book in 2023. What great wisdom has the world received in the 20th century or now in 2023 that will make it a better place pray tell? What better source of wisdom and truth has suddenly appeared that is better than the Bible? You must be living in some alt reality if you think the world is any better in 2023 than it was in 1917 or 1939 when the world wars started. "The Bible is unique! It is not enough to say that it is a unique Book, for it is a collection of sixty-six ancient Books. Moreover, this unique collection of Books is bound together by a central theme and a unity of purpose which makes the books into One Book. This Book tells of the ways in which God revealed Himself to mankind over a period of several thousand years. This account of the ways in which God has intervened in human history provides us with a description of the nature and the attributes of God completely different from the concept of God found anywhere else in the entire world of literature. The Bible is history, but history strikingly different from ordinary history. Secular history tells of the rise and fall of nations, of great wars and battles, and of the ways in which men and nations have affected the peoples of surrounding territories. But the Bible goes further than that. The Bible is an interpretation of history, showing how men (as individuals and as nations) have either been blessed or punished by God for their attitude to Him and His holy laws. It is this unique explanation of the moral and spiritual factors behind the historical narrative, which makes the Bible so relevant to us today." 1. The Authority of the Bible | Bible.org What wisdom does the modern world have that doesn't come from the Bible or is better than the Bible? What makes you think the ancient people who wrote the Bible under the inspiration of God were wrong?
  8. That's hilarious. You rarely comment on the actual subject, but rather attack the poster. I simply respond to your nonsense.
  9. Of course. It makes perfect sense and fits in with what the Bible says. Since you have not watched it, how do you know whether it is true or not. Making assumptions again I see One of the most ridiculous comments you have made. The Bible strongly opposes Communism and Socialism. If you had read any of the articles which I posted parts of you would know that and wouldn't be bumbling along in the darkness with ridiculous ideas.
  10. Many are called but few are chosen. - Bible. Many are on the road to hell. The video gives the evidence with video of billionaires, former Presidents that support one-world government. It can't be denied. Believe what you wish, but the facts are there. Trudeau and liberals are globalists. Why do you think Canada's representatives on the U.N. and other world bodies are globalists? Canada's deputy PM /Finance Minister attended the World Economic Forum. Couldn't be must clearer than that.
  11. We are heading for a one-world order globalist government of the Anti-Christ. Watch the video on the link I posted just above. Many people in Europe naively believe a globalist government will solve the world's problems. The video reveals many of the world leaders and secret societies who have supported such a system including the Pope, and some American Presidents. The Pope is one of the most powerful political leaders in the world, and he supports Socialism, open borders, and one-world government.
  12. Not really. Western culture has been dying a slow death for years. The attached video link tells it as it is. Hidden in Plain View: The New World Order in Bible Prophecy - Bing video
  13. This video really tells it as it is and the direction we are heading in: Hidden in Plain View: The New World Order in Bible Prophecy - Bing video
  14. Western culture is dying a slow death. We are being taken over by authoritarian globalists. Just look at the mess with Canada's open borders and migrants pouring in. Liberals don't care because they believe Canada is a post-national state anyway. Their allegiance is to globalist government.
  15. Give the native red power radicals and their woke supporters a piece of land they can call their own country and put them there. People make their choice which side they want to be part of and must swear an oath of allegiance and stop this woke nonsense. No crossing the border. End of story.
  16. There is nothing that says we have to change anything either.
  17. I suppose that red power radicals would like to send us all back where our ancestors came from, but I don't know of anyone who would support that idea. I think a lot of people would support the idea of giving them their own territory and giving them the choice of which country they want to live in and swear allegiance to. The ones who want independence would finally have their wish fulfilled. Canada is not going to give its territory back to the natives and the existing idea of trying to let natives have it both ways is not working very well. They are determined to have self-government and independence.
  18. " Collective vision for the BC First Nations Justice Strategy Research and community engagement with BC First Nations and justice system partners culminated in this 2019 vision for the Justice Strategy: Transforming the relationship of First Nations with the criminal justice system through Nation to Nation partnerships, with a goal of advancing First Nations’ self-determination and self-governance through the application of First Nation laws, traditions, and jurisdictions, making changes to the existing system and its administration, and building capacity for Nations to increase holistic wellness, safety and security for their communities. – BC First Nations Justice Summit participants, 2019" It appears abundantly clear FN leadership want to create a separate legal system for FN. So how would this work and who would pay for it? What about the fact many FN people live in non-native society such as towns and cities across Canada. What justice system would they be dealt with in? How could people who committed crimes within non-native society and harmed non-natives be tried and punished in a all-native justice system? Since they say their objective is self-determination and self-governance, would it make more sense to find a piece of land and give it to the natives who want total independence and place them there. It would essentially be a separate country and there would have to be borders with security and passports for everyone to cross. All natives could be given the option of choosing which country they wish to be a citizen of and given citizenship of the one they choose. I don't see any reasonable solution to the direction we are heading in now if they hold the idea that they must have self-determination and self-government within Canada. I cannot see how that can work within Canada.
  19. "The evolutionary assumptions concerning Neandertal Man began early this century. The first Neandertal was reconstructed as a ‘missing link’ by famous paleontologist Marcellin Boule (1861–1942).3 He was called Homo neanderthalensis, implying a primitive evolutionary link to modern man, Homo sapiens. Forty-four years later, a reanalysis of Boule’s work showed his extreme evolutionary bias in the reconstruction of Neandertal Man. After the reanalysis, some scientists stated that if you dressed him up, gave him a shave and bath, and sent him into society, he would attract no more attention than some of the subway’s other denizens (see box). Neandertal Man was then reclassified as Homo sapiens neanderthalensis, just a particular type of modern man." Neandertal Man - the changing picture (creation.com) The following picture of a girl is interesting because she was a computer reconstruction of a Neanderthal. "Researchers at the University of Zürich used computer-assisted paleoanthropology to reconstruct this Neandertal child, based on the Gibraltar 2 skull (ifi.uzh.ch). Neandertal DNA decoding now reinforces this clear humanness. (Image de.wikipedia.org)" "27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. " Genesis 1:27, 28 KJV
  20. How can anyone reason with someone who believes man evolved from the slime in a pond? How can anyone reason with anyone who dismissed the fact that God created the complex universe or believes everyone evolved from some random chemicals in a sludge? Or someone who thinks the universe just created itself out of nothing? Irrational much.
  21. Oh, is that a fact? What proof do you have? Any evidence? Why do you assume that? Yes, I have heard that claim, but how can they know? What evidence is there of how long they were here? It serves their political interests of course to make that claim and also serves them on their land claims. But I think most anthropologists say they came across the Bering sea from Asia at some point. They likely were not here nearly as long as some of them claim.
  22. The human values we use in society didn't come from the Neanderthals. It came from God. That's the point. God inspired men to write the Holy Scriptures (Bible). God gave certain values to humans thousands of years ago. Why wouldn't he? Man lived back then and God gave man those values that are described in the Bible. God wished and still wishes man to have a good relationship with his Creator and Savior Jesus Christ. Here is one viewpoint about Neanderthal man. "Who were the Neanderthals? Sub-human cave-dwelling brutes, or descendants of Adam and Eve, made in God’s image? The evidence from Neanderthal anatomy, culture, and DNA is consistent with a biblical worldview. Neanderthals were a fully-human post-Flood people group, not an evolutionary side branch." There is a 21 minute video that you might find interesting on the subject of Neanderthal man on the same website I quoted from. Neanderthals & Cavemen? - Media Center (creation.com) "Neandertal Man was the name given to bones found in 1856 in Germany’s Neander Valley (‘tal’, or ‘thal’ in old German spelling). The name Neander was a pseudonym of the 17th-century minister Joachim Neumann, the Greek translation of his name (‘new man’). A major PBS-TV series on evolution1 depicted Neandertal Man as only half human and not very intelligent, one who lived a very inferior life compared to the alleged first humans, the Cro-Magnon people. Some scientists today believe he was ‘lacking the language skills, foresight, creativity, and other cognitive abilities of modern humans’.2 Neandertal Man is considered to be either a link leading to modern man or a dead end in human evolution from the supposed ape-like ancestor. Recreating the faces of our Neandertal cousins Researchers at the University of Zürich used computer-assisted paleoanthropology to reconstruct this Neandertal child, based on the Gibraltar 2 skull (ifi.uzh.ch). Neandertal DNA decoding now reinforces this clear humanness. (Image de.wikipedia.org) From their skeletons, we know that the average Neandertal person had bony differences from the average person alive today, including a bigger braincase. So what did they look like? Bones cannot tell you about things like hairiness, nor the shape of the fleshy parts, like nose or ears. But computerized forensic science has come a long way in making educated ‘guesses’ at a person’s appearance from the shape of a skull. As reported in January 1996 National Geographic, researchers at the University of Illinois used computer morphing techniques to fit pictures of living people onto Neandertal skulls. Unlike the artistic reconstructions of earlier times, this time nothing was imaginatively added based on evolutionary assumptions of ‘primitivity’. The results indicate that the bones of the skull would not preclude Neandertals from looking like people you would not greatly comment on (apart from hair and dress style) if they moved in next door to you today. Biblical creationists, on the other hand, believe that there were no ‘subhumans’ at any time. Neandertal fossils are all post-Flood, so these bones are believed to represent just one more group of people which split off from other groups following the Babel dispersion." Neandertal Man - the changing picture (creation.com)
  23. You misunderstand what the principles of the Bible would be as it relates to what a justice system is all about. Of course justice depends on evidence that is scientifically derived and validated. That is a Biblical principle. That is what I am saying. In setting up a FN justice council, we don't know exactly what the NDP plan is or where this is heading. I am not claiming there should be some kind of religious exercises involved in justice. I am talking about the basic principles in the Bible that have existed through history that we should be continuing to follow. That does not include releasing dangerous offenders if they are a risk to society or sending convicts to healing lodges, which the justice system is known to have done. The problem is not just that aboriginals may use their heathen spiritual practices to try to rehabilitate a criminal, it is the fact that the list of the claimed causes for an aboriginal person committing offences seems to show that the FN justice council's main interest is focused on a person's past life and how bad it was. That would seem to indicate they would reject the major principles of justice system, that is, the protection of society and punishment for the crime. That would be a major problem. We have already seen the consequences of that including loss of life of innocent people and police officers. "God’s desire for justice extends to crime prevention and the punishment of evildoers: • “For I the Lord love justice; I hate robbery and wrong” (Isaiah 61:8, ESV). • “When justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers” (Proverbs 21:15, ESV). • “Whoever says to the wicked, ‘You are in the right,’ will be cursed by peoples, abhorred by nations, but those who rebuke the wicked will have delight, and a good blessing will come upon them” (Proverbs 24:24–25, ESV). The Mosaic Law specifically forbade unjust weights and measures (Leviticus 19:35–36) and condemned the taking of bribes (Exodus 23:8). God places a special responsibility on judges and other authorities to provide justice, warning them in Psalm 82 that they will themselves face judgment. Every human tribunal is under God’s order to do what is right: • “You shall do no injustice in court. You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor” (Leviticus 19:15, ESV). • “Thus says the Lord of hosts, Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy to one another” (Zechariah 7:9, ESV). • “Do not show partiality in judging; hear both small and great alike. Do not be afraid of anyone, for judgment belongs to God” (Deuteronomy 1:17). • “In a lawsuit, you must not deny justice to the poor” (Exodus 23:6, NLT). • “Justice, and only justice, you shall follow” (Deuteronomy 16:20). Justice is linked to a right relationship with God, and those who know God will act justly: • “The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern” (Proverbs 29:7). • “Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the Lord understand it completely” (Proverbs 28:5, ESV). • “The wicked accept bribes in secret to pervert the course of justice” (Proverbs 17:23). • “Blessed are they who observe justice, who do righteousness at all times!” (Psalm 106:3, ESV)." What does the Bible say about justice? | GotQuestions.org
  24. This is where you completely misunderstand what the Bible and the God of the Bible is all about and claim you are following science and reason. Following the Bible is actually following reason and has been for ions. If you support the use of sending aboriginal criminals to healing circles, smudging ceremonies, and other unbiblical, aboriginal practices that involve their concept of driving out evil spirits as a legitimate solution, you are supporting heathen religious practices instead of a civilized justice system. That is what we are talking about here. Do you seriously think an aboriginal justice system is following reason and science? I have told you that principles of the justice system in non-native society are more aligned with the principles in the Bible. Non-native society does not try to use aboriginal spiritual practices. Also the protection of society is a non-native priority or has been except with the liberals and left who have been constantly releasing dangerous offenders. Priority for the protection of society is a Biblical principle. Protect the innocent. Would you agree?
  25. I am not trying to fool anyone. I don't claim to be anything other than a sinner saved by God's grace. I sinned through my life I admit. But God spoke to me through the gospel message on the radio one night 42 years ago and said whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13 KJV) I realized I was a sinner who needed to be saved. I believe God in his mercy saved me in spite of my sins. I realize the Bible teaches everyone deserves to go to hell unless they are saved. I am no better than the natives who follow in heathen religions. Christ paid for my sins by shedding his blood on the cross. I believe he was raised from the dead and because of his grace, I am forgiven by God. I still think about my past sometimes with regret, but I can't change the past. I realize I should not be looking back and should be looking forward. I praise God that he gave me this gift of faith and salvation. I am only telling you this in hopes you will know where I am coming from. I am not trying to fool you.
