Canada's christians are not full time Christians. They pretend to be Christians every week when they attend Church service and recite prayers but come Monday they do not live very Chritian like lives. It seems we let our government get away with way too much unethical conduct overseas that is really unChristian like. Ususally Ottawa does whatever Washington dictates with little regards for the blowback to Canada and makes every Canadian Christian look like a hypocrit. The Arar and Khadr cases are just two typical examples,but Immigration policy in general seems anti-christian to me.

Being a Christian doesn't mean one is perfect. Sins are confessed to be forgiven before communion each week. Humans are not free from sin. Only God is without sin.

Having faith is a life long journey. One filled with many tests on one's faith. Over and over again God will test a Christian. This is to ensure a strong faith will develop.

Read your Bible. Get a Catechism and use it to help you understand the Bible. Don't worry about the actions of others. Be happy that you have found Jesus and wish others the hope of finding the same joy one day.

God speaks to all of us. You can hear him if you listen really hard. He hears your prayers. Talk to God directly. He's always listening. Pray honestly with an open heart. He loves you.

A few years ago, there was a cold snap in Vancouver. On the news, I saw a woman handing out hot soup and coffee from the back of her old station wagon in the down town east side. One of the homeless fellows had no coat, so she gave him hers. She was a real Christian.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought only the Catholics confess their sins?? So, IF that is true, when does the rest confess? If one knows the 10 Commandants, I think every leader has broken them, like "thou shalt not kill" .

There's books and books written. In short, some protestant denominations believe that you are a sinner and your salvation is predestined or that you are a sinner and you gain salvation through good works. Catholics believe you must confess your sins and they are absolved. For the others, sins are never absolved, but part of our alienation from God. The best we can do is hope we are predestined for salvation or just try to be the best we can be and earn salvation.

Why do you assume she was Christian.

Personally I find the whole weekly ritual of consuming our gods body and blood very disturbing. It's much too cannibalistic for my taste.

So don't do it then. You do have that choice. In an Islamic caliphate you would have no such choice. You'd be a Muslim or you'd be dead. Enjoy that freedom while it lasts.

I didn't realize immigration policy was supposed to be pro Christian? What about pro atheist?

Personally I'd rather stimulate our own population production. At least we could say something is made in Canada in comparison to nothing being made in Canada.

I am, thanks.

Now that I think about it. It really makes sense Christians are a pure consumer culture. We have been participating in brainwashing ritual consuming of our God every week for the last 2000 years. It's all very logical.

If they believe in God and Jesus, then they're a Christian. They aren't pretending. How they interpret the bible and how they should act based on it is a different question.

Christians have been hypocrites for thousands of years. But we shouldn't hold our government to religious standards. Those are way too ambiguous with so many translations of scriptures that their meaning becomes useless. We should hold our government up to better standards than religious ones.

Christianity can interpret the Bible in different ways. Muslims are not permitted to do this with the Koran. No interpretation. It means exactly what it says. Even the most offensive passages.

Not so, the Quran is interpreted in various ways. One of the simplest reasons is that many Muslims around the world are not fluent in Arabic so they have to rely on translations of the texts.

      I'm going to be making some major changes to the forums over the next few weeks.
      The first, and likely the biggest change, is going to be in the name of the site, and the domain name you use to access the site (and consequently the discussion forums). I'm not going to release the new name yet (or the domain), you'll just have to wait and see what it is.  Not to worry, all of the old URLs will still work, everything will just be forwarding to the new domain URL scheme.
      I will also be modifying the sub-form categories somewhat, incorporating some long overdue changes.  Mostly, I'll be expanding the US Politics section, so that it has it's own section (similar to what we have for the Canadian Politics section) 
      Canadian Domestic Politics Federal Politics Provincial Politics Local Politics United States Domestic Politics Federal Politics State Politics Local Politics International Politics Canada / US Relations The Rest of The World The remainder of the forums I plan to keep the same.
      Of course I'm always open to suggestion for organization of sections, so please post below if you have any ideas.
      If you have any other good suggestions on reasonable changes we can make to the forums, please post them below. If they're good ideas, I'll do my research and see how easy it would be to incorporate into the new forums.
      Thanks!

      All over Ontario, people have been quarantined for weeks in order to flatten the curve and save lives, for the majority of places it has been working. Health officials are now saying that some places in Ontario have reached their peak and the daily number of cases are slowly starting to decline. However, long-term care homes are still at high risk and are being closely monitored to prevent a wide-scale outbreak.

      Canadians won’t be able to return to life as they knew it before the novel coronavirus pandemic until a vaccine is available, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday.
      “Normality as it was before will not come back full-on until we get a vaccine for this… That will be a very long way off,” the prime minister said during his daily news conference on Canada’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

      As Canada confronts the worsening COVID-19 outbreak, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has hinted his government might declare a federal emergency, giving his cabinet extra powers to battle the pandemic.
      “It is a major tool and I can tell you that we already have a lot of tools that allow us to do what we need to do,” said Trudeau, at his Thursday news conference outside Rideau Cottage in Ottawa. “If there are other steps that need to be accomplished and can only be accomplished through invoking the Emergencies Act then we will do so.”
      Some experts have been urging the government to invoke the Emergencies Act, while others have shuddered at the idea, which would be an extraordinary step in the government’s response to the crisis.
      “We do recognize that the Emergencies Act is an extreme law with certain implications that would also require us to bring back the House of Commons to pass these measures,” said Trudeau.

      Bill Maher said it was fine to call the coronavirus the “China virus,” adding that a global pandemic was no time for political correctness.
      “‘What if people hear Chinese virus and blame China?’ The answer is we should blame China. We can’t afford the luxury anymore of non-judginess towards a country with habits that kill millions of people,” Maher thundered Friday in a monologue at the end of his HBO show “Real Time.”
