  1. We are stuck in the middle of a pandemic even if it has evolved to the latest variant. The only hope to get out of this is vaccinations and restrictions.
  2. Sorry, you were replying to someone else.
  3. Not following that, but people who reject God's wisdom found in the Proverbs and Bible make that choice themselves. Everyone makes their own bed and must lie in it.
  4. The kind of wisdom and knowledge referred to in the Proverbs and the rest of Bible does not mention political parties or political stripes, but if the leftists oppose the Bible and it's teachings, then of course they are opposed to God's wisdom and knowledge. In other words if the shoe fits leftists, I guess they would have to wear it. People who reject knowledge and wisdom made that choice themselves.
  5. People are different in various fundamental ways. They are not the same. It has nothing to do with skin colour or race. Sure people adapt to sports or certain forms of lifestyle, but many retain their ancestral culture. They do not accept our Judeo-Christian culture. Many hardly speak any English and mainly stick to their own ethnic groups who speak their foreign languages. But the problem is they are often open to liberal, Marxist ideas because they do not believe or understand Judeo-Christian beliefs which reject Marxism, progressivism, Socialism. They are open to those ideas which is one reason liberals are so glad to bring millions of them into Canada. Why do you think they have fought civil wars in Africa, Central America and other places. They cling to their tribalist mentality and fall for Marxist ideas and progressivism. A good example is Jagmeet Singh who clings to Sikhism and said the Communist revolution in Cuba lifted the people up. Never mind that it killed thousands of people, imprisoned thousands more, and deprive the people of their fundamental freedoms. He may have even been born in Canada but obviously has the same religious beliefs as his ancestors and doesn't believe or accept conservative values. The NDP is a strong defender of progressivism, abortion on demand, same-sex marriage, etc. The Liberals are much the same, which is why many immigrants support them and Liberals/NDP promote immigrants as their base with all the energy they can.
  6. "1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; 2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; 3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; {liftest…: Heb. givest thy voice} 4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; 5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. 6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. 7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. 8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints. 9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path. " Proverbs 2:1-9 KJV Receive Jesus Christ and get wisdom. That is what counts, not all this back and forth over mandates or perceived threats to freedoms. Get knowledge, get salvation, get wisdom.
  7. Canada's culture is based on western civilization or Judeo-Christian culture, much the same as America and western Europe. So our values and beliefs are basically founded on our European founding fathers, much the same as American values and beliefs (culture). Our culture has been confused and watered down somewhat by the importation of millions of immigrants from the third world who do not share our Judeo-Christian culture. They brought heathen religions and cultures. This is all supposed to be accepted as normal or progress under the banner of multiculturalism. Multiculturalism has been a failure where it has been tried. It leaves us with no core identity and no clear culture. But that is the liberal idea of progress (or progressivism). The reason it is done is to provide a massive labour pool because liberals and the left don't want to have traditional families and produce many offspring. Or they want to be free to work until most of their child-bearing life is used up and they can only have one child. This means the European founding people will disappear because Caucasian Canadians are not reproducing the minimum 2.1 children per family. This is the liberal idea and the consequences. This is another reason the liberals are setting up $10 a day national childcare. In their mind working women creates a better society than mothers at home looking after their children. If liberals could they would probably embrace a mandatory one-child policy as China did in the past. The ideology fits in better with Communist or Marxist ideology. It would fit in perfectly with Chairman Mao's playbook. Marxists in Canada are demanding to make everything a right, guaranteed income, housing, food, dental, drugs, etc., anything that will take care of them from cradle to grave. They believe nobody should have to work hard, get an education or skill and support themselves. They believe the state should provide everything. This is the direction Canada is heading. China's culture and belief system is entirely different. They have become a Marxist-Leninist state and worship Chairman Mao. This means totalitarianism and no personal human rights or democracy. Whatever the collective represented by the Communist Party of China decrees must be the absolute rule. They have no interest in western culture, democracy, or freedoms and human rights. They view such things as anarchy and against the collective. China's system of totalitarianism go back thousands of years. President Xi is a Maoist (Marxist-Leninist) and his ambition is to dominate the world. That means spreading Marxist ideology to other nations. Human rights for individuals and democracy never really took hold in China and it has no chance of taking hold in the foreseeable future. Liberals live under the illusion that they can somehow change China and it will become like a western nation. They are dreaming. It will never happen. Canada is far more likely to become Marxist like China than China become liberal like the west. American conservatism is more aligned with western traditional values of family, turkey dinner on thanksgiving and Christmas, individual freedom and human rights. It better aligns with our historic Judeo-Christian values. The recent Democrats lean more toward Socialism, liberalism, progressivism, globalism (mass immigration) and multiculturalism and are therefore much like Trudeau and Canadian liberals. So we have a divide that is not good. The influence of Marxism has crept into America, Canada and the west. Canada has no clear culture of it's own other than the remnants of our European heritage. Multiculturalism is not a unifying culture and never will be. Neither is liberalism or progressivism a culture. It is a destructive force that destroy society. Liberalism-progressivism is attacking historic Judeo-Christian society, traditional values such as family and beliefs. It is fiction that it can create a better world.
  8. "Just the Facts: Liberal party’s connections to China’s communist regime Health Minister Patty Hadju recently said questioning China’s coronavirus propaganda is akin to promoting conspiracy theories. Prior to the last federal election, former Liberal MP and ambassador to China John McCallum advised Chinese officials not to hurt the Liberals’ chance of reelection. McCallum said the Conservatives would be harsher in holding China to account. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau even once said he admired China’s basic dictatorship. How much influence does the Communist Party of China have in Canada? Canada’s security officials have warned of growing Chinese influence for decades, but these warnings have been largely ignored by both current and former Liberal politicians. Here are some of the connections prominent Liberals have had with the communist regime: 1997 – The RCMP and CSIS published a joint report called Project Sidewinder, which examined the relationships between powerful players in China and Canada. Project Sidewinder recommended further investigations into Chinese influence in Canada, but the report was dismissed by the PMO under Liberal Prime Minister Jean Chrétien. 1998 – Project Sidewinder was reviewed and ultimately dismissed again by the Security Intelligence Review Committee, which at the time was led by MP Bob Rae. Rae would go on to become an interim Liberal leader. John Rae, brother of former Liberal leader Bob Rae and former Liberal campaign co–chair, is a senior manager of Power Corp. Power Corp has significant investments in China, including assets bought from the China International Trust Investment Corporation (CITIC), an investment firm owned by the Chinese government. André Desmarais, the deputy chair, president, and co–CEO of Power Corp was once appointed as a director of CITIC. Desmarais is the son–in–law of Jean Chrétien. Chrétien himself sat on the board of a Power Corp subsidiary before his election as Liberal leader. Project Sidewinder reported that the individuals the Chinese government hired to found CITIC had been accused of participating in organized crime in China and Hong Kong." Just the Facts: Liberal party’s connections to China’s communist regime | True North (tnc.news) Notice the Liberal government has repeatedly been warned by CSIS but they are so arrogant they just repeatedly ignore the warnings. They are in it for themselves, not for Canadians.
  9. Did that come from the Daily Lie news service? What a waste of time.
  10. Must be very troubling for you liberal Marxist supporters to have US influence instead of China's.
  11. I ordered a Dell computer for $89 from one of those ads on Facebook which said they were associated with Costco but it comes from China. Ordered four weeks ago. Am still waiting. I gave you the names of books to study on China's growing power and influence in the west, but you still sound like you know nothing about it. You think they can be trusted with their growing influence in Canada? Ask the two Michaels. Ask the international countries that tried to investigate the origins of Covid. Ask Taiwan. Ask Australia about China. Ask the CIA in the U.S. Ask the U.S. military. Ask the Canadian Forces. Ask all the companies that they stole technology from.
  12. Government has the authority given by God to take whatever action they deem to protect the safety and well-being of it's citizens. This is the same as any employer that requires all it's employees be vaccinated to protect everyone as much as possible. Common sense.
  13. Honourable Andrew Scheer, leader of the opposition at the time, said " “This is incredible. The person who should be representing Canada’s interests is indebted to a bank run by the Chinese Communist Party. How did Justin Trudeau think he was an acceptable pick for Minister of Foreign Affairs?” "Columnist John Ivison wrote in the newspaper, National Post: “When you owe someone more than $1 million, the potential for influence and abuse is ever-present.” He also cited Margaret McCuaig Johnston, a senior fellow at the China Institute at the University of Alberta, as saying, “It is inconceivable that this is not at the back of his mind as he deals with the government of China, his most difficult file.” Canada’s foreign minister faces heat over $1mn loan from Chinese bank | World News - Hindustan Times What is staggering about this is the fact that Trudeau would appoint Champagne as Minister of Foreign Affairs, knowing Champagne has these mortgages with a bank controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. There is a news report that the mortgages with the bank in China were paid off in 2020 and mortgages taken out with a Canadian bank. This is a good thing. But still what happened during those years he had the loan with China and was Minister of Foreign Affairs? Appointing him to that position shows a lack of judgment.
  14. I say this to you and anyone else opposing the health regulations. I believe governments are given authority by God to take whatever measures are necessary to protect their citizens from harm. You and I or any other citizens do not have the right to over rule the government's orders. That is what this is all about. This is not a game. Getting a vaccination is physically and logistically a very small thing to ask people to do. There is no right to go against the government. That is anarchy and law-breaking. "1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. {ordained: or, ordered} 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. 5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake. 6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God’s ministers, attending continually upon this very thing." Romans 13:1-6 KJV
  15. 98 long-haul health issues caused by Covid. 98 Symptoms Coronavirus Patients Say They've Had — Eat This Not That
  16. Actually it is because they are more likely to be carrying and spreading Covid to others. They have no inherent right to do that.
  17. We have lots of mother earth worshipers in the environmental movement who want to save the trees and whales, etc. It's a false religion that is having consequences. If you don't want to believe in the virgin birth, etc. that's your choice. Don't throw bull at those who believe it. Nothing arrogant about holding Biblical beliefs.
  18. People who refuse to get vaccinated are a threat to the rest of us. They are not doing their part to protect society and help to try to bring an end to this pandemic.
  19. 90% of truckers are vaccinated. The protests against mandates and the health guidelines makes no sense. Takes very little effort for one to get vaccinated. Why would truck drivers, who have reputations for being real men, be scared of a little vaccine shot? Mind boggling. They must have seen this requirement coming for some time and did nothing.
  20. Another example of how the world via social media is badly influencing young people. Teachers say social media is ‘hurting’ students — but their jobs have also gotten harder (msn.com)
  21. Some missionaries would have taught them about the true God of the Bible versus the false gods some aboriginals were worshiping. Most Canadians do not understand this because Canada is largely a heathen country today. That is why I say Canada is becoming more like a third world country, a natural result of mass immigration from heathen nations. Concerning north American aboriginal beliefs: "Great Spirit and Worldviews Many Indigenous peoples subscribe to the idea of a Creator, Great Spirit or Great Mystery — a power or being that has created the world and everything in it. These beings are often described as good or well-intentioned, though dangerous if treated carelessly or with disrespect. Great spiritual power is also found in the spirits of all living things, natural phenomena and ritually significant places. In general, supernatural mystery or power is called Orenda by the Haudenosaunee, Wakan by the Dakota and Manitou by the Algonquian peoples. This power is a property of the spirits, but also belongs to transformers, tricksters, culture heroes, or other spirit figures, as well as shamans, prophets and ceremonial performers. Ritual objects such as the calumet, rattles, drums, masks, medicine wheels, medicine bundles and ritual sanctuaries are filled with spiritual power." Religion and Spirituality of Indigenous Peoples in Canada | The Canadian Encyclopedia
  22. No. The Europeans brought civilization to the aboriginals. Never stole anything. Created jobs over a hundred years ago, set up fish canneries on the coast, started logging and sawmills, brought tools and knowledge to them, built homes out of lumber, brought all the conveniences of a civilized society, brought justice systems, education, medical care, etc. etc. and of course brought the gospel. Also brought democracy and later human rights. Now they use the courts to claim billions of dollars that government is forced to pay them. People migrated into every place on earth and nobody was forced to pay compensation to anybody that live there before. Only in brainless Canada.
  23. My perspective is based on the Bible teaching that man has a soul and a spirit and the soul does not die when man dies. Let's not forget we also are living in a corrupt, fallen world where there are innocent people who lost their lives in war, pandemics, cancer, etc. Death is a central feature of this fallen world. But this website explains more about why God allows death. "First, death is a result of sin. Death was never a part of God’s plan for His creation. We live in a fallen world, and Paul reminds us in Romans 5:12 that the byproduct of sin in the world is death. But the good news is there is hope beyond the grave. The sickness that leads to death in the world will not always be here. Second, sometimes the reason for death is to focus our hope on heaven. Death has a way of keeping us from putting our hope in this world. There is perhaps no greater object lesson than a funeral to remind us how brief our time on earth is. And many times, one reason for death is to remind us that this world is not all that there is, that something better awaits us. God allows death to remind us to fix our hope on heaven. Third, God allows us to experience grief so we can comfort others. When we understand that we are here to minister to other people, we have a new perspective on the problems we go through, including the loss of a loved one. Paul says that God “comforts us in all our affliction so that we might be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God” (2 Corinthians 1:4)." The rest of this article is at this website: Why Does God Allow Death? - Pathway to Victory (ptv.org)
  24. I have not been to those places or situations so can't say anything about that particular aspect. Only what I've seen on the tube, movies, or read. But I don't think the existence of such places proves that God is not everywhere. I have become convinced that God revealed himself through his written word, in English, the King James Bible. He did warn there would be wars, etc. until he returns, which could be any time. We need to be ready. As far as God being in bad places like Somalia, we are told God is a spirit and separate from the material world. He created the universe and man, but he is not a material being himself. He is still there as a spirit and is particularly with those who believe in his Son in a special way. This is a spiritual presence, but real nonetheless. He has given man free will; hence all the evil things men choose to do. But there is a day coming in which he will rule the earth and there will be no more wars or suffering.
  25. The majority in Canada seem to be of a secular humanist, liberal mind. What do we expect when Canada brings in millions of third world immigrants without any Judeo-Christian beliefs or culture and destroys our civilization created by our European founding fathers.. Canada has become a post national basket case. Trudeau was right about becoming a post national state. "When the prime minister says Canada is the world’s “first postnational state,” I believe he’s saying this is a place where respect for minorities trumps any one group’s way of doing things. ‘There is no core identity, no mainstream in Canada,’ Trudeau claimed after the October election. ‘There are shared values – openness, respect, compassion, willingness to work hard, to be there for each other, to search for equality and justice.” The New York Times writer who obtained this quote said Trudeau’s belief Canada has no core identity is his “most radical” political position. It seems especially so combined with criticism Trudeau is a lightweight on national security and sovereignty. Not too many Canadians, however, seem disturbed by Trudeau talking about us as a “postnational state.” The dangers of Trudeau's 'postnational' Canada | Vancouver Sun
