Christian attitudes towards drugs, smoking and alcohol

no alcohol (1)

Proverbs 20:.1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.
 .
The key Christian teaching in relation to the use of drugs. alcohol and smoking  is that the physical body is the natural home of the soul, and is therefore precious and sacred.
 

Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 6:

9 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.

11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.

15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.

16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Ephesians 5:18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
.

According to the news mediaPM  Stephen Harper : Canada –Loves rye (or beer) and hockey, and has a secret wish to be American.

.

 No man should adduce in favour of drinking wine unless he can prove that the wine Jesus made in the” water-pots” of Cana was just like the wine which he proposes to drink. There are ample Greek literary texts which negate the narrow definition of oinos as denoting only fermented wine as it did not have the taste or the intoxicating effect of ordinary wine, God did not make fermented juice.. New wine would be grape juice (or a grapeade) mode from grape syrup while old wine would be 2 to 3 years old Suffice it to say, the “better” wine of course does not in any way imply or demand a more alcoholic, or even an alcoholic, wine at all, there is not the slightest evidence that the word so used would have conveyed any idea but that of the pure juice of the grape,

 

John the Baptist did not drink wine or any other form of alcohol because Scripture prophesied that he wouldn’t (Luke 1:15). Most people don’t know where to draw the line between temperance and excess. Such people better abstain totally until they know they can “be temperate in all things.”

 

John 210 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

 

And the word used twice  for “good” wine is a Greek word which refers to something or someone morally excellent or intrinsically good, rather It was Christ who in the Old Testament gave the warning to Israel, that “Wine is a mocker,” so why would he make fermented grape juice? by creating alcoholic wine, Jesus would have been promoting drunkenness, which the Bible clearly identifies as sinful.

 

Next you will say Jesus would have also distributed Playboy magazines.

 

If Jesus made fermented wine, then the fact that the guests had become”well drunk” would have meant that Jesus endorsed excessive drinking. Therefore,either Jesus endorsed excessive drinking of alcohol or the wine was unfermented grape juice! Obviously, then, the wine that Jesus made was unfermented grape juice.

 

Too many have assumed that the Hebrew and Greek words translated as “wine” must have the same meaning that themodern usage meaning of the English word “wine” does. In the English language, the word “wine” originally was used to denote the juice of grapes, whether in a fermented or unfermented state. Long ago, of course, that word has taken on the usage meaning of only grape juice in its fermented state. That’s why today we distinguish the two drinks by using the terms “wine” and “grape juice.”

 

Exodus 12:15 and 13:7 forbid the very presenceof “leaven” anywhere in the homes during Passover. The New Testament–in Matthew 16:12 and I Corinthians 5:7-8–provide the explanation by declaring that leaven is a symbol of evil. Leaven is a yeast, so the leavening process is parallel to the process of fermentation. In the light of these facts,plus Jesus’ statement in the disputed passages that the “fruit of the vine”represented His own saving blood, we must surely conclude that the communion cup did, and should always, contain unfermented (ie., uncorrupted) grape juice. The following Old Testament texts show God’s disapproval of wine, as “yayin:” Genesis 9:21; 19:32; Leviticus10:9-11; Deuteronomy 32:33; Psalm 60:3; Proverbs 4:17; 20:1; 23:20, 29-35;31:4-5; Isaiah 5:11-12; 28:7; Ezekiel 44:21; and Hosea 7:5. Proverbs 23:31-35–Again, the very nature of fermented wine is categorically condemned as a “serpent” and an “adder” that bites and stings.

 

The Bible condemns the use itself of all alcoholic beverages and highly recommends unfermented grape juice!  The only exception to this consistent rule in Scripture is Proverbs 31: 6-7, which commands that alcoholic beverages be given to those who are dying or cowards.

 

The assumption made by proponents of the moderate use of alcoholic beverages that the ancient peoples did not know how to preserve the juice of the grape in an unfermented state, and that therefore, virtually every instance of wine mentioned in the Bible must be to fermented wine.This assumption is totally false as the ancient historical records are abundantly clear that there were several major methods of preserving grape juice in its natural, unfermented state.

 

Scriptures clearly teach that the very nature of alcoholic beverages is that which brings spiritual apostasy and otherwise affects the mind (and body too) of whomever drinks it. In other words, it is not excessive drinking only that the Bible condemns,but the beverage itself and its consumption in any amount. Since most people and Christians do not know or study the Bible today they are easily deceived.

 

As it is abundantly clear that the Bible condemns the use of alcohol in any amounts, Persons that are simply rationalizing what they want to do regardless of the facts or the consequences to their spiritual, or physical, natures are led to do so by the demons.

.
So Christians do not approve of the taking of illegal drugs, including  recreational drugs, all  those items which can alter the mind and make people incapable of praying or being alert to God.
 .
Christians will take prescription drugs when appropriate.
 .
Alcohol, tobacco and pot are examples of recreational drugs which are Forbidden to all Christians
 .
And the undeniable brain damage by the use of bad drugs, and alcohol is irreversible
 .
The widespread abuse of drugs, narcotics , alcohol are also  linked to virtually to every evil and criminal activity within our society including adultery, murder. 
.
If any person has genuinely become a “new creature in Christ” the Bible says that old things are supposed to pass away… that all things should become new (2 Cor. 5:17). Therefore, every believer should seek to put on the new creation of Christ, and to put off the old life, including the continued use of mind altering drugs,narcotics, alcohol and smoking .
 .
Revelation 21:8 “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
 .
  Drugs have a Proven Connection with Sorcery and Witchcraft  According to W.E. Vine’s expository dictionary of New Testament Words (page 1074), the word SORCERY comes from a Greek word, PHARMAKIA – used as a noun, it “signifies a sorcerer,” one who uses drugs, potions, spells, enchantments, as in Rev. 21:8.
 .
The English word for drugs, pharmacy, comes from this same root. Drugs and potions have traditionally been used in witchcraft and satanic rituals to induce deeper subconscious states which enable persons to have fellowship and communication with demons. Realizing the satanic relationship with drug use helps us to understand why abusers of drugs experience such bondage and depravation.
.
Nowhere in the Bible or in history have drugs been used to bring people closer to God – they have always been used in relation to bringing people closer to evil powers and demonic influences.
 .
And   alcohol, drugs are continually linked with the headlines of Death, Robbery and Destruction. If this sounds familiar, it should. According to the Bible, these happen to be the identical characteristics of Satan.
 .
John 10:10 “The thief [Satan] does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
 .
1 Corinthians 10:21 “You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons.”
 .
According to the Bible, Christian believers also now are accountable for all that they do .
.
Galatians 6 :7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
 .
The Bible says that we belong to the Lord and we are to glorify Him with our body and with the way we live.
 .
1 Corinthians 6:20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
 .
1 Corinthians 10:31 Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
 .
Ephesians 5:17-18 “Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
 
{18} And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit…”
 .
1 Corinthians 3:16-17 “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
 
{17} If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.”
 .
1 Corinthians 6:12 “All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.”
 .
Are you under their power? Let Jesus free you now..

Alcohol is a poison that is detrimental to one’s health and all persons who take bad drugs and alcohol suffer undeniably irreversible brain damage, death of brain cells, become more and more mentally  retarded . 
.
Poison is a good choice of words, particularly when the substance is in the hands of young people who often think themselves immune from the dangers around them Drinking even one alcoholic beverage while soaking in the sun can increases skin cancer risk by 20 percent while drinking more than four glasses increases this risk by 55 percent, a new study finds . It’s estimated that  roughly 13% of those watching the  watching Super Bowl  will consume alcoholic beverages.
.
Too many deaths are also  linked to energy drinks being mixed with alcohol. This is a dangerous combination . And it’s just a matter of time before new regulations start to surface here too.  Unfortunately, the vast majority of people impaired by these products are young, often those not yet of legal drinking age. They mix it with juices and stimulant drinks that enhance the poisonous effects. According to the American Cancer Society, cancers linked to alcohol use include mouth, throat, voice box, esophagus, liver, colon and rectum, breasts, and even pancreatic cancer. For each of these cancers, the risk increases with the amount of alcohol consumed.
.
Heavy drinking can cause cancer, heart disease, stroke, liver failure and other diseases, and drinkers are more likely to die in acccidents or to be murdered. And people who drink and smoke together raise their serious health disease risk even more. 
.
Alcohol is still an  ‘important  cause’  of premature death .  Overall, most deaths were due to liver disease (63 per cent) and neuropsychiatric disorders (32 per cent). Excessive alcohol use can cause or exacerbate disorders such as alcohol dependence syndrome, depression, anxiety and psychotic episodes.  In Canada, the U.S., Argentina and Costa Rica, Cuba, the highest mortality rates were seen among those aged 50 to 69 People can spend 20 years drinking alcohol and not feel any of the effects this is doing to them. Eventually you reap what you sowed and the damage  shows up.  Alcohol is still an  ‘important  cause’  of premature death and major sickness.
.
.
.
Most ostrich alcoholic  drinkers rarely admit they are alcoholics , that they are heavy drinkers or that they will suffer any negatives side effects such as cancer due to their drinking. In other words  Most ostrich alcoholic  drinkers are liars. Alcohol’s negative health impacts are undeniable. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2016/02/21/most-drinkers-are-liars/
.
Many people will tell you marijuana is not dangerous. Consider who is telling you that. Are these the same people who are using it or are trying to sell you some pot?
 .
The Holy Spirit works in the lives of  Christians and empowers them to begin changing as their sinful burdens are released by the power of God’s forgiveness for their sins.
 .
Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
 .
Jesus began His public ministry by announcing He had come, among other things, to set captives free (Luke 4:18); and Apostle Paul asserted that full liberty is what God has called us to, that Christian liberty should be protected, and that any bondage is to be avoided (Gal. 5:1, 13). Paul puts a great value on personal freedom and condemns anything that restricts or prohibits a person from reaching his or her God-given potential. Addiction, a dependence on a certain behavior or experience  is sinful.

Be Sober

(Num 6:3 KJV)  He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried.

(Isa 28:1 KJV)  Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine!

(Isa 28:7 KJV)  But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.

(Isa 56:12 KJV)  Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.

(Hosea 4:11 KJV)  Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart.

(Titus 1:7 KJV)  For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;

(Psa 4:7 KJV)  Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.

(Psa 60:3 KJV)  Thou hast showed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.

(Psa 75:8 KJV)  For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.

(Psa 78:65 KJV)  Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.

(Psa 104:15 KJV)  And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man’s heart.

(Prov 4:17 KJV)  For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.

(Prov 20:1 KJV)  Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

(Prov 21:17 KJV)  He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.

(Prov 23:30 KJV)  They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine.

(Prov 23:31 KJV)  Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.

32  At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder. :33  Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things. 34  Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast. 35  They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.

(Prov 31:4 KJV)  It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink:

(Prov 31:6 KJV)  Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts.

Prov 24:1  Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them.

(2 Cor 5:13 KJV)  For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause.

(1 Th 5:8 KJV)  But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

(1 Tim 3:2 KJV)  A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

(1 Tim 3:11 KJV)  Even so must their wives be grave, not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.

(Titus 1:8 KJV)  But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;

(Titus 2:2 KJV)  That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.

(Titus 2:4 KJV)  That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,

(1 Pet 1:13 KJV)  Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

(1 Pet 4:7 KJV)  But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

(1 Pet 5:8 KJV)  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

(Eph 5:18 KJV)  And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

You cannot judge me??

No alcohol

ALCOHOL IS  A  VICE AND NOT A NECESSITY
dr death
 
Some persons rightfully maintain that prison,  job termination are still the main and best solution to this problem of alcoholics, drug abuses too .. for my being kind to the UNREPENTANT wicked, bad, no good persons is really now still a complete waste of time, energy, effort for without real negative consequences neither they or the others tempted to follow them they will not tend to readily positive change, for their own good or the good of others.
 .
(Isa 26:10 KJV)  Let favour be showed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.11 LORD, when thy hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them.
 .
(Hab 2:5 KJV)  Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people:

Drugs, Drinking and driving still do affect the number of road deaths, and alcohol is still a factor in at least a quarter of all fatal collisions. In 2003, more than 200 people died and 500 were seriously hurt in drunk-driving collisions in the province of Ontario’s roads alone
 .
“Sat Oct 22, 3:46 PM ET  OTTAWA (CP) – In a corner of Senator Marjory LeBreton’s office sits an arrangement of fresh white roses, daisies and lilies from Brian and Mila Mulroney. The card is marked: “The sun will shine again.” The sun is obscured by a tragedy for LeBreton that seems to have no end. LeBreton, who worked as Mulroney’s appointments secretary, lost a daughter and grandson nearly 10 years ago to a drunk driver named Matt Brownlee. Brownlee is a nephew of Bonnie Brownlee and Bill Fox, the husband and wife team who worked as press secretaries for former prime minister Mulroney and his wife, Mila. Matt Brownlee, who served seven years for drunk driving causing the deaths of Linda LeBreton-Holmes and her 12-year-old son, Brian, in suburban Ottawa was again charged this month with drunk driving and driving without a licence. The new charges against Brownlee, 33, have not been proven in a court of law but have re-opened old emotional wounds. “I was stunned at the news,” said the Conservative senator known for fierce loyalty to Mulroney and being the former prime minister’s eyes and ears in Ottawa. “I’d tried to put it at the back of my mind because it’s been almost 10 years since my daughter and grandson were killed . . . And I am angry.” LeBreton, who serves as the national chair of Mothers Against Drunk Driving, thinks Brownlee should be declared a dangerous offender and locked up indefinitely. “My goodness, they just don’t get it,” said LeBreton. “They’re treating this as if it’s a public relations exercise and somehow or another there’s a story to be told on behalf of Matt Brownlee. “It’s never him, and it’s never them, it’s the system that let him down, and I was actually quite angry when I read that because not once in that whole article was there any remorse or any regret for what he’s done.”   LeBreton says she is frustrated by a weak justice system and has been working on a bill to lower the allowable blood alcohol level for driving to 50 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood from the existing 80 parts.  She says such countries as France, Germany and Australia have already moved to the lower level.”

“Ottawa — Pierre Tremblay, the former Liberal aide who later ran the corrupted taxpayer’s paid  Canadian Federal government’s sponsorship programming in Ottawa Ontario, died a tormented man said a close friend said in a television interview, Claude Lamontagne was close to Mr. Tremblay.  Mr. Tremblay testified in private about the corruption before a parliamentary committee, but died in 2004 before he could testify at the subsequent Gomery inquiry into the scandal. Mr. Tremblay was chief of staff to then-public-works-minister Alfonso Gagliano from 1997 to 1999, in the early days of the sponsorship program that also aimed at raising the federal presence in Quebec before it became abused by the Liberal party members themselves. Mr. Tremblay  was the bureaucrat in charge of the program from 1999 to 2001. Mr. Tremblay witnessed irregularities, but refused to divulge them before and next  Mr. Tremblay died from diabetes after battling alcoholism,”  Brain damaged Alcoholics running governmental programs was and is still always unacceptable, he Pierre Tremblay should have rightfully been terminated, fired, been dismissed long time ago too and with no severance pay too.”
 .
Verbal, Physical abuse, Disrepect  of any persons, self included is immoral, unaccpetable  wrong and is in the same unacceptable categaory of Cheating, Lying, Stealing, Tax evasions.
.
These days you also so got to supervise daily even the politicians, even the civil and public servants  now as well, for it seems they will all run back quickly to their old tricks.. to their even bad habits of drunkenness, cheating, lying and stealing, and wrongfully next also they think they can get away with it. Clearly we as citizens have wrongfully elected too many thieves, liars, drunks, alcoholics into political offices… and they all now should still be fired, removed, recalled ASAP.It is also really not acceptable that  we let the people who are the real accomplices of the  abuse the taxpayers money, the existing inadequate poor supervisors in the governments, civil and public services to stay employed, and they rightfully also rather now should immediately all be fired.. in fairness now even all of them.
 .
The Public exposure and prosecutions of the guilty persons starting rightfully at the top, but goes down to the bottom as well  serves everyone’s best interest and is continually mandatory for everyone’s best and good welfare. All it takes for evil to prosper is for the good people to wrongfully do nothing about it.
  .
You know that even when any  crown corporation too now does not perform rightfully I really rightfully recommend to the Ministers, government that their budget be severely cut till the managers and the subordinates do get their whole House in order..
 .
 
I have really also learned  from personaly observing many persons the last 35 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  will eventually swing wide open.. and when any person tends to personally allow, start a little acceptable vice, abuse, eventually the other even bigger vices, abuses  do now also tend to grow, develop there as well..  and yes while some deny it they too all thus next can be easily discovered, even though the guilty persons too often  will deny this.. and this includes 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 the others abusive behaviors of bullying, racism, disrimination, pride, lying.  Many people lie to others and falsey deny they have a personal problem. You see one of the major problem about lying is one next tends to believe in one’s own lie as being the truth when they   still are not the truth, and one does do becomes personally partially often next even insane for lying.  …  And most people still do even lie every 3 to 5 minutes they undeniably say? But some person lie a lot more than others, a lot more.. even to themselves , others and to the courts especially. it is not just all the men now that are supposedly the bad guys. in reality men and women are still equal sinners according to God still too and both lie, sin. One of the major problem about lying is one next tends to believe in one’s own lie as being the truth when they still are not… Most of the liars  still are wrongfully not willing to take any personal responsibility, accountability for their own faults, their own shortcomings now next  too and project wrongfully their faults, problems even on the others

.

The real, root problem often is not the alcohol, or the drugs themslves, alone but rather one honestly dealing with themselves and their own real shortcomings  still too.The basic secret of all successful substance abuse termination programs are accepting personal repsonsibility, personal ccountability,  the individual first personally has to admit he or a she  has done wrong, also admits he or she now does needs help,  admit that they is willing to take the help.. all three aspects are required still too. An appropriate real self examination on their own part is always needed firstly here  for it is also their  own real bad personal acts,  and related guilt that next contributes, contributed to his or  her own poor self image, fears, additional  problems..  especially more when things did not go the way he or she had planned beforehand . 
 .
Did you also know that even professionals, teetotalers can develop an “alcoholic behavior temperament”, as evidenced by the Taylor Johnson temperament analysis test too, to that of a person who has a poor self image, and  who is a cheat, liar, manipulator, con artist. Many  persons lile this too have personally next had refused to go to any  counseling and why they would rather often rather to go to any other persons  and there wrongfully talk  about the other issues and not themselves. Now still  what about the people who often do cheat, lie and steal now, even any the lawyers, professionals, politicians especially who do note whetehr they admit it to youot not, they doalso become more depressed than the average person now as well as a result of their own absues. They too personaly do reap what they themselves have sowed ehh?  It is in fact very likely the cause they also do  tend to next have the same behavior temperament  as an alcoholic, a substance abuser   in reality.

Furthermore “Depression more common among substance abusers: report   Thu, 09 Dec 2004 10:49:04 EST  OTTAWA – Heavy drinkers or drug users are much more likely than teetotalers to become depressed, just as people with the mental illness more often develop addictions, a Statistics Canada study suggests.  The report, released Thursday, indicates that adult Canadians who rely on illicit drugs are more than six times as likely to suffer through a major depressive episode than those who never touch them.   More than a quarter – 26 per cent – of Canadians who seemed dependent on drugs in 2002 struggled with depression, compared to only four per cent of abstainers, the Alcohol and Illicit Drug Dependence report suggests.  About one in six heavy drinkers – those who had five or more drinks on a single occasion at least once a month during a year – had a depressive episode, compared to one in 20 among non-drinkers.   Tjepkema said the report confirms the results of earlier studies that suggest a link between substance abuse and mental illness and lends weight to them because it relies on a much larger sample of the population.  Written by CBC News Online staff”

“Top U.S. drug-addiction research warns against decriminalizing marijuana  Dec. 7, 2004    Provided by: Canadian Press   Studies show wider availability of a drug coupled with a relaxed attitude towards it help predict the level of use and addiction, said Dr. Nora Volkow. (CP handout) VANCOUVER (CP) – A top American clinical researcher in the field of drug addiction warned Tuesday that decriminalizing marijuana could lead to increased abuse of the drug.  Studies show wider availability of a drug coupled with a relaxed attitude towards it help predict the level of use and addiction, said Dr. Nora Volkow, director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Volkow said surveys indicate that if a drug is considered safe and benign, its use spirals. Drug addiction rates can range from 20 to 30 per cent of users.   “The notion of legalizing and making drugs accessible, what it will do is ultimately increase the number of people that get exposed to the drug,” Volkow said in an interview.  “Some of those people will become addicted that may have not become addicted had it not been so easily accessible.”  The best examples, she said, are alcohol and tobacco, both widely available and relatively acceptable socially and with the most widespread addiction rates.  The federal Liberal government is mulling the decriminalization of possession of small amounts of pot. The Canadian proposal is drawing frowns within the U.S. government – notably drug-policy czar John Walters – accompanied by warnings about implications at the border.  Volkow, here to speak to people working in the drug-addiction field, said many scientists used to believe marijuana was not addictive.  But she said the pot consumed by the Baby Boom generation had much less of the active ingredient THC – which interacts with receptor proteins in the brain that translate pleasure responses – than the types now available.  “It is this chemical that can lead to the addiction,” she said. “When people were taking marijuana in the past, they were consuming a very weak drug.  “The experiences that people may have had – that are now in their 40s and 50s – who say ‘I never became addicted to that drug,’ that does not necessarily pertain to the type of compound we’re seeing today.”  Research since then has also revealed a lot more about the effects of marijuana on those brain receptors and how they help regulate things such as memory and learning, she said.  Volkow was appointed in 2003 to head the institute, an arm of the U.S. National Institutes of Health.   With a budget of more than $900 million US, it is the world’s largest supporter of clinical research on addiction and funds about 85 per cent of studies worldwide.  A research psychiatrist, Volkow, 48, has published more than 200 papers and specializes in the study of brain imaging to investigate what role dopamine, the brain chemical that triggers sensations of pleasure and motivation, plays in addiction.  Volkow’s skepticism about marijuana is based partly on her experience.  She made her reputation in the 1980s with a ground-breaking study that discovered regular cocaine use caused tiny strokes. Coke was the drug of choice in the go-go ’80s, popularly thought to be safe for recreational use.  “I had serious trouble getting that study published,” she said. “Nobody wanted to believe it.”  The organization Volkow now heads even rejected her grant application. It took the cocaine deaths of two prominent sports stars to alert people that maybe cocaine wasn’t so safe, she said.  Those kinds of causal links don’t yet exist with pot, she said. But some studies have tied its use to a rise in psychotic episodes and schizophrenia.  The institute is funding research to look at the effects of marijuana in the developing brain.  Volkow told the meeting research indicates adolescent brains are at higher risk of drug addiction because areas of the frontal cortex that affect reasoning and judgment, as well as a deeper region that involves pleasure responses, are not yet fully developed.  Environment also plays a role, she said, because studies show a connection between stress levels and addiction. Poverty itself is not the cause, said Volkow, but the stress of dealing with poverty is.  Despite her concerns about decriminalization, Volkow said drug addiction has to be treated as a disease, not a moral weakness to be stigmatized.  “It doesn’t help anyone and it certainly doesn’t help the addicted person,” she said. 
 .
With a lot of criminal activity linked to drug addiction, Volkow said the institute favours treatment intervention in prisons.  A Delaware study found a sharp drop in drug use and arrests among people who went through the correctional system’s program and received followup care.  Such programs could be pivotal because in the United States, only about 15 per cent of addicts get any kind of treatment, she said. “  But the devil and his spin doctors  will try to deny all od  these truth stoo..

(Gen 3:4 KJV)  And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5   For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

but next they too were still even faced with the reality… (Gen 3:7 KJV)  And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.8   And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden. 9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?10   And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

 No man should adduce in favour of drinking wine unless he can prove that the wine Jesus made in the” water-pots” of Cana was just like the wine which he proposes to drink. There are ample Greek literary texts which negate the narrow definition of oinos as denoting only fermented wine as it did not have the taste or the intoxicating effect of ordinary wine, God did not make fermented juice.. New wine would be grape juice (or a grapeade) mode from grape syrup while old wine would be 2 to 3 years old Suffice it to say, the “better” wine of course does not in any way imply or demand a more alcoholic, or even an alcoholic, wine at all, there is not the slightest evidence that the word so used would have conveyed any idea but that of the pure juice of the grape,

 

John the Baptist did not drink wine or any other form of alcohol because Scripture prophesied that he wouldn’t (Luke 1:15). Most people don’t know where to draw the line between temperance and excess. Such people better abstain totally until they know they can “be temperate in all things.”

 

John 210 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

 

And the word used twice  for “good” wine is a Greek word which refers to something or someone morally excellent or intrinsically good, rather It was Christ who in the Old Testament gave the warning to Israel, that “Wine is a mocker,” so why would he make fermented grape juice? by creating alcoholic wine, Jesus would have been promoting drunkenness, which the Bible clearly identifies as sinful.

 

Next you will say Jesus would have also distributed Playboy magazines.

 

If Jesus made fermented wine, then the fact that the guests had become”well drunk” would have meant that Jesus endorsed excessive drinking. Therefore,either Jesus endorsed excessive drinking of alcohol or the wine was unfermented grape juice! Obviously, then, the wine that Jesus made was unfermented grape juice.

 

Too many have assumed that the Hebrew and Greek words translated as “wine” must have the same meaning that themodern usage meaning of the English word “wine” does. In the English language, the word “wine” originally was used to denote the juice of grapes, whether in a fermented or unfermented state. Long ago, of course, that word has taken on the usage meaning of only grape juice in its fermented state. That’s why today we distinguish the two drinks by using the terms “wine” and “grape juice.”

 

Exodus 12:15 and 13:7 forbid the very presenceof “leaven” anywhere in the homes during Passover. The New Testament–in Matthew 16:12 and I Corinthians 5:7-8–provide the explanation by declaring that leaven is a symbol of evil. Leaven is a yeast, so the leavening process is parallel to the process of fermentation. In the light of these facts,plus Jesus’ statement in the disputed passages that the “fruit of the vine”represented His own saving blood, we must surely conclude that the communion cup did, and should always, contain unfermented (ie., uncorrupted) grape juice. The following Old Testament texts show God’s disapproval of wine, as “yayin:” Genesis 9:21; 19:32; Leviticus10:9-11; Deuteronomy 32:33; Psalm 60:3; Proverbs 4:17; 20:1; 23:20, 29-35;31:4-5; Isaiah 5:11-12; 28:7; Ezekiel 44:21; and Hosea 7:5. Proverbs 23:31-35–Again, the very nature of fermented wine is categorically condemned as a “serpent” and an “adder” that bites and stings.

 

The Bible condemns the use itself of all alcoholic beverages and highly recommends unfermented grape juice!  The only exception to this consistent rule in Scripture is Proverbs 31: 6-7, which commands that alcoholic beverages be given to those who are dying or cowards.

 

The assumption made by proponents of the moderate use of alcoholic beverages that the ancient peoples did not know how to preserve the juice of the grape in an unfermented state, and that therefore, virtually every instance of wine mentioned in the Bible must be to fermented wine.This assumption is totally false as the ancient historical records are abundantly clear that there were several major methods of preserving grape juice in its natural, unfermented state.

 

Scriptures clearly teach that the very nature of alcoholic beverages is that which brings spiritual apostasy and otherwise affects the mind (and body too) of whomever drinks it. In other words, it is not excessive drinking only that the Bible condemns,but the beverage itself and its consumption in any amount. Since most people and Christians do not know or study the Bible today they are easily deceived.

 

As it is abundantly clear that the Bible condemns the use of alcohol in any amounts, Persons that are simply rationalizing what they want to do regardless of the facts or the consequences to their spiritual, or physical, natures are led to do so by the demons.

The unfortunate facts of life

Wrongful inactions, Cover ups, False denial of bad politicians, bad cops, bad persons, false pastors, false priests are much too common but nevertheless they do get exposed, revealed to all as to what they are often now like  too, and get what they deserve, and not the first or last time.

Public exposure and prosecution of the guilty still serves as a rightful deterrent example to all and is still one of the best approaches on how to deal with the evil persons. Even the Bible records openly the unrepentant sins of many persons and their real  negative consequences. Too many of the preachers are unacceptably also guilty of preaching “Do what I say and not what I do still too”.

Canada -Tory MP who led anti-drug campaign charged with cocaine possession   The former chairman of the Conservative caucus who was featured in anti-drug campaign ads is facing charges of cocaine possession and drunk driving. Prime Minister Stephen Harper named Jaffer chairman of the Conservative caucus shortly after the 2006 general election. Jaffer, 37, was MP for the riding of Edmonton-Strathcona from 1997 until a surprise defeat in last year’s election to the NDP’s Linda Duncan. Jaffer recently worked for Green Power Generation Corporation, which helps bring alternative energy technologies to market.“ The Conservative party supports drug-free schools and getting tough on drug dealers who sell illegal drugs to children. Don’t let our schools go up in smoke.” perverse Rahim Jaffer This  Former Edmonton Conservative MP Rahim Jaffer is facing charges of drunk driving and cocaine possession. Jaffer, husband of Tory MP Helena Geurgis, was arrested just after midnight last Thursday night by Ontario Provincial Police in Palgrave, north of Toronto. He has been charged with driving while over the legal blood-alcohol limit, and with possession of cocaine. His licence has been suspended for 90 days and he is to appear in court in Orangeville, Ont., on Oct. 19.  Hey I have already many times written that Alcohol is also a big part of many a Conservative politicians life, and I  wanted to know how many of them now were alcoholics too.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/drink-alcohol-and-die/ 

VANCOUVER — A $5 million legal bill for defending a religious order against charges of sexual abuse has landed a B.C. senator in hot water. Sen. Mobina Jaffer, a Liberal appointment to Canada’s upper chamber, must undergo a conduct review, the Law Society of B.C. announced Tuesday. The Order of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate sued Jaffer, her son Azool Jaffer-Jeraj and their firm, accusing them of overbilling the order for legal work done from 2000 to 2004. The lawsuit was settled before it went to trial.  Now the case will proceed to a conduct review. “Undergoing a conduct review is a serious matter for any lawyer,” said Stuart Cameron, the society’s director of discipline.   Ms. Mobina Jaffer was appointed as a Senator to represent British Columbia in June of 2001.  Having been born in Uganda, and trained in law in Britain she had a  career as a lawyer and was active on many legal and charitable foundations, as well as being involved in local politics.  She was the first Muslim ever appointed to the Senate and the first African-born as well. Ms. Jaffer is the deputy chair of the Senate Committee for Human Rights and also sits on the Committees for Official Languages, Internal Economy, Budgets and Administration and the joint committee for the Library of Parliament. Anyone checked her Senate expense accounts yet too? http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/09/16/one-of-harpers-boys-in-trouble/

MEANWHILE  Taiwan ex-leader jailed for life BBC News  Taiwan’s former President Chen Shui-bian has been sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of corruption by a court in Taipei. Mr Chen was charged with embezzlement, taking bribes and money laundering, involving a total of $15m (£9m) while in office from 2000-2008. His wife, Wu Shu-chen, already jailed for perjury in the case, was also sentenced to life for corruption.  The two were accused of embezzling $3.15m (£1.9m) from a special presidential fund and laundering it through Swiss banks.  They were also accused of accepting at least $9m in bribes from a Taiwanese company to help it sell a piece of land to the government and of accepting nearly $3m more in kickbacks for helping a contractor gain a government project.  Mrs Wu had been sentenced on 2 September to one year in prison for perjury for asking her children to lie in court. Nine other accused, including Mr Chen’s son and daughter-in-law, have pleaded guilty to some charges related to the case.

Sep 10, 6:12 AM CP  HALIFAX, N.S. – A judge in Nova Scotia will begin hearing arguments today on whether to certify a class-action suit against the Roman Catholic church over the alleged sexual abuse of children by its priests.  John MacKiggan, a lawyer representing the claimants, says he will present arguments to a Supreme Court justice over the alleged decades-old abuse in the diocese of Antigonish.    The lawsuit was launched last year by Ronald Martin, whose brother wrote a suicide note in 2002 that led to charges of sex crimes against a priest from the diocese. In the suit, Martin claimed the diocese failed to protect children in its care when it became aware of the alleged abuse. The church reached a proposed settlement with the plaintiffs last month, but it has to be certified by the court. The judge also has to approve the proposed settlement of more than $13 million, which would be available to people who were allegedly sexually assaulted by any priest of the Catholic Episcopal Corp. of Antigonish since Jan. 1, 1950. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/090910/national/ns_diocese_lawsuit

 

Former N.S. bishop charged with possession of child porn.  Raymond Lahey, the former bishop of the diocese of Antigonish, is known as the man who oversaw a $15-million settlement with people who said they had been sexually abused by priests in the diocese dating back to 1950. He was arrested at the Ottawa Airport last week after members of the Canada Border Services Agency performed a random check of his laptop computer. Lahey has been charged with distributing and selling child pornography.  On Saturday, Lahey, 69, announced his resignation as bishop of the Antigonish diocese. In a letter to parishioners, he said he needed time for “personal renewal.” http://www.cbc.ca/canada/nova-scotia/story/2009/09/30/ns-bishop-charged.html

The last thing on my mind when I go to a new evangelical Christian church is that I will be abused, lied to, slandered, robbed, misused, persecuted  but sadly now too often these days that is not the reality. Why?  Not just the ungodly Liberals but the far right itself often still coerces  others who do not go along with them by “Borking” them.   Now ”Taiwanizing”  means calumniating, ostracizing, excluding and hopefully ultimately de-legitimizing a country. Doing the same thing to a person is called “Borking”. Borking  is “to attack a person’s reputation and views unfairly,” includes the concerted attack on the  challenger’s  character, background and philosophy.. Both Liberal and  Conservative activists have been making the same action over and over again in regard to  the so called  their opponents, news media,   reporters: The borked opponents aren’t debated but merely  shut  down, censored,  their free speech denied, and often next immediately they are forcibly removed, kicked out, never allowed to be discussed again too by anyone,  and hopefully insuring their person and his views being totally excluded from the rest of the local group, community.  The borked opponents aren’t debated but merely  shut  down, censored,  their free speech denied, and often next immediately they are forcibly removed, kicked out, never allowed to be discussed again too by anyone,  and hopefully insuring their person and his views being totally excluded from the rest of the local group, community. The fact this is too often practiced in too many evangelical churches of all places is astounding. The real Irony and hypocrisy is the right wing often claim they rather now are being Borked even while they are Borking the others.;  Example to fire an honest government official in an attempt to prevent embarrassment to and exposure of a dishonest government officeholder who has conspired to commit high crimes, the 1973 unacceptable firing, massacre of Watergate Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox by Solicitor General Robert Bork, orchestrated by both  Bork and President Richard Nixon . 
 
 As a professional, University graduate I now  was always solely responsible for my work output, no one told me how to do it too, I had always worked on my own with minimum supervision. When I   stepped   into a church, in many or most churches I was, am treated as if I am now in pre school generally, where I am immediately given a whole bunch of rules, even as to where I can sit, what I can wear, how much money I should give to the church, what I can do and cannot do etc.. mostly a totally demonic, controlling, dominating environment, so much so that  I rightfully often think that  the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ themselves are not allowed to express themselves, not given freedom to manifest themselves too. If I dare to openly question anything I  am threatened with police action and immediate church dismissal too. Forget about being showed mutual respect in this caged circus rather. This is all just perversity and not freedom in Christ.  Thank God that not all churches now are like this.

The Bible itself cleary posts the name of many of those now who had sinned, and did not repent, and some of their negative consequences too, as a warning to all the others who would equally be now next tempted to sin and not repent . Bad shepherds, priests, ungentle control freaks  included who had allowed the flock to be abused.

I USED TO BE NAÏVE ONCE AS TO WHAT GOES ON IN CHURCHES AND WHAT PASTORS CAN BE REALLY LIKE NOW TOO. ALSO WHAT POLITICS, JUDGES, LAWYERS, COPS, PROFESSIONALS CAN BE LIKE TOO.  A BAD PASTOR FIRSTLY TO REPENT NOW NEXT TOO? DON’T too often now EXPECT FOR SURE A MIRACLE HERE OVERNIGHT TOO.

I still would rightfully rather see pastor first live a sermon instead of too often now merely preach it to others and I really do think it is so farcical how some sinfully, proud evangelical pastors are ready to condemn others, to gossip about, to now preach about the other person’s  sins but someone how they can’t seem to deal with their own false abuse of others, their own sins, and their own false pride. Sadly I have often been in bad Christian churches where the clearly crooked pastor Stéphane Chauvette Associate Pastor  to turn off attention off himself would bash some other churches, some other denominations and some other persons, but all that bashing of his now did not still deny his own sins and his own wrong doings though now. The Bad preacher are not the only ones who can preach about other people’s sins and demand others to repent, so can I, bad pastors now included and I rightfully  do often as well. The older I get being falsely persecuted  next in the House of God, evangelical churches firstly now, seems to be a norm for me rather than an exception.. 

 

Their CONTROLLING BEHAVIOR, their false dominating behavior,  is Public Enemy Number One.. If you are a   Control freak you are not only still an unrealistic, immature, immoral person  but you  may have a serious personality disorder.  Slave drivers are driven by the devil.  https://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/07/07/control-freaks/ http://thefocusonthefamily.wordpress.com/2008/08/12/more-about-control-freaks/

While Moses was a great example of meekness it seems many pastors are not these days.. they are anything but meek, they are rather controlling, harsh, unkind,  dictatorial, abusive, insulting, unloving,, rather I have often also met in evangelical circles the despotic foremen,  dictatorial types, bully, jungle fighter   leaders, the same persons who think they are supreme over all others, they can take the law into their own hands, and even do what they want over any others, physically now as well. I have not totally now understood how these unacceptable, abusive slave drivers got to this personality stage or why they falsely think in their abusive pride they will get away with it forever now as well. And yet they mostly lie and deny these sins, falsely claiming rather they are good, loving, kind..

(Gal 6:1 KJV)  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 2  Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. 3  For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceived himself. 4  But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. 5  For every man shall bear his own burden.

Now as I was also reflecting about my many past posts on the net  in the last few years I was really saddened to note that too many of them were about bad , greedy people trying to steal , trying to get other people’s money for themselves, stealing the money, or getting  it under false pretences. The love of more money is still the basis of what many of the wrong doings is, was all about..(Eccl 8:11 KJV)  Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil

I was also very sad to note as to how many evangelical, Christian  pastors, politicians falsely approve of drinking alcohol even though their real Christian colleagues preach against it..   Fundamental evangelical pastors preach it is a sin for any Christian to drink alcohol, Liberal Christians such as Catholics or Eastern Orthodox church say it is not. But one thing no one can deny is how harmful drinking alcohol is.. in Russia 60 percent of men and women die due to drinking alcohol.. how much hurt and damage does alcohol drinking cause in Canada? and how much money does it costs the taxpayers now too? Much too much too.

I have often heard it said that most Canadians Canada wide now are still like fearful sheep they are too ready to be fleeced, sadly it also seems they must have ostrich genes in them for when you present negative truths they tend to often rather bury their heads in the sand as well it  seems.. especially in in too many of the evangelical churches.. or  the ostrich sheep in Alberta who also now too often seem to think no Conservative politician can ever do any wrong rather it has to be the other bad guys, you know the liberals. Or the BQ separatists, the communist NDP… Ironically the wolves in sheep clothing exist Canada wide, in evangelical churches, political circles too now, and I guess for me telling the truth that is why so many of them hate me, do not hesitate to ban me or kick me out of their often also  bad churches now too..

I had attended a recent comical church service,  New Beginnings Ministry 9412 Rue Clement Lasalle, QC H8R1T5 Phone: (514) 363-1080., a farcical circus, not the first time now too,  where the pastor Stéphane Chauvette Associate Pastor was preaching about everything, bashing everyone else, but somehow he could not keep his own promises, his  own word, or stay on a specific valid subject. And he made it clear if you  rock his boat he will next also kick you off the ship.. The modern Christian evangelical fundamentalism demands a false blind obedience to a one man minister, ministry and all that he says and falsely bypass the mutually submissiveness eldership rule pattern set forth in the New Testament, book of Acts now as well. This bad fundamental church is no exception to this.  FaLSE, CULTISH CHURCH LIKE THIS ONE, LESS THAN A HUNDRED PERSONS NOW TOO, THE 2 PREACHERS THERE THEY LIKE TO JUSTIFY THEIR SMALL NUMBERS BECAUSE THEY PREACH THE TRUTH, THUS  THEY ARE A REMNANT, SPECIAL,  DISTINCT GROUP  OF TRUE BELIEVERS. Would be a lot better if they acted now like true genuine  true Christians firstly, and practice  real love towards others  too. This hypocritical, pretentious fundamental right winged evangelical pastor of this New Life Beginnings in LaSalle, Quebec  Preaches next openly  now  for us not to believe any of the news media and for us not to  have anything to do with any person who drinks wine **, and to stand up against all of the people who do any wrong, to even openly speak to them, ( as long as it is not the pastor himself  for sure) and yet he lied and says come and talk to me your pastor after church. I am always really interested to hear from you about all of your concerns but  in reality when you do try to talk to him.. for next  I thus told him that our evangelical Canadian PM Stephen Harper, the supposedly good Christian now drinks beer/wine, well the pastor really got upset at me for this..  since he himself cannot handle negative truths, he the ostrich no good pastor refused to further talk with me  and said  he was tired now, he  refuses to hear any of that, he refuses to believe any of that, for that is all gossip,  slanders, and also we do not allow anyone who causes disturbance, problems, gives any criticism in our church, so please leave now. So much for this supposedly Christ like church and their false professing Christian love, false brotherly love, their supposed openness now, and one’s free speech too..

(Mat 24:48 KJV)  But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49  And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50  The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51  And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

(1 Cor 5:11 KJV)  But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. 12   For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? 13   But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

** The Pastor had said that God does not let us to talk to anyone who drinks wine, but this is a rather distorted, extreme interpretation of the Bible, The Bible clearly says WE ARE NOT TO FELLOWSHIP WITH A CHRISTIAN PERSON  WHO GETS DRUNK.. now that is really different from not talking to any of the people who drink wine.. and why is this pastor so ready not to talk with others now too? so ready to smite them, to kick them out of church? If you have love for someone you are willing to talk with them, but if you do not have love for them, especially if, when you know they do not support you, do not agree with your presentation, do not agree  with your point of view, you as a pastor too now can personally can instead  refuse to love them, you refuse to talk to them, you find any excuse to reject, ostracize, divorce them basically to deny, to cover up the unacceptable reality that you yourself the pastor actually do not have any love for them.

Our Freedom of speech to many of these despotic, self centered, agenda oriented  preacher  is generally one way, they alone are allowed to do all of the talking, and no one else, everyone else is only allowed to listen is also what I have directly experienced here too. If you challenge what they say they falsely do immediately divorce you, even physically assault you and kick you out of the church now too.  The same pastor says he does not believe anything the news media writes at all. So who does he believe? only himself it seems and anyone else like minded. So what truth is he really now peddling, a distorted ones clearly. For the record, Stephen Harper Prime Minister of Canada himself now did  not even deny to me that he drinks beers and/or alcohol, or that he even gives presents of alcohol to others as well. So why do any of the others? Why did this pastor? They can only face the negative reality from a distance… Not  the first time I do now meet such fundamental ostriches.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2009/01/23/alcoholic/

Please do have the local LaSalle police remind the pastors, elders, members, adherents of this Pentecostal church that is is still illegal for the pastor or anyone else now there too to physically assault anyone, even if it is in their church. They may have a right to ask anyone to leave their premises, but as I have witnessed myself now they do not have a right to physically grab, lay hands, assault any person in their church even now too especially when he did nothing wrong.. That right is only for the police and is limited for them as well.. If someone next after being asked refuses to leave the church when asked they can call the police. I told them that I was glad to leave this church on my own free will and will be just as glad not to come back too.


Honor Killings, Violence. In reality too the Cops themselves, RCMP included, now   are not the only one who resort to violence when their authority is threatened, so do some clearly bad, hot tempered evangelical  pastors now too..  I too before have already experienced in Canada  a  direct physical assault of me by  a rogue Pentecostal pastor who had punched me, physically assaulted me, with no provocation too,, in front of a witness, backed up with a police report , cause I had refused to go to his church. An another Pentecostal pastor and even a church elder,  were  attempting to physically abuse me to stop my public revelations of his unacceptable acts, thefts of money too. and the same thing had happened to my own brother on another occasion and he too had called the police and reported the matter who also had experience physical assault attempt  by a Plymouth Brethren pastor. But none of this should be a surprise when a pastor’s authority, financial security is threatened ehh..
 
OVER MANY YEARS I HAVE LEARNED THAT PERSONAL, RELIGIOUS CONFLICTS SEEM TO BE UNAVOIDABLE EVEN IN ANY CHRISTIAN CHURCH.. AND WE ALL SHOULD KNOW AS TO HOW SHOULD WE DEAL WITH THEM, REACT TO THEM.. MANY PEOPLE FALSELY RUN AWAY FROM THEM, TRY TO DENY THEY EXISTS.
 
It is a basic fact the we must all learn to live, communicate in love with one another, and his communication does not mean we have to accept all wrong doing now as well for the devil and his followers will often come to us to try to cause false bondages upon us, to detour us or divert us from the freedoms, truths that we all do we have in Christ. And it is very likely if you or the leader refuses to talk with someone it is really cause you do not love them as well.
 
(2 Tim 1:7 KJV) For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

One of the things I have found also so confounding is how many contradictory preachers can be filled with both truths and lies, falsehood, errors and how come? Why is that?   I was passing through the city of Chicago on the way to Winnipeg and I had decided to stop in a Fundamental  church, that I had read about in Christians magazines, books now too, this Church had regular Sunday services casting out demons out of Christians too. I was dismayed to  hear the preacher at a Sunday morning service also preach that the Russians had an army of tanks on the US border in Canada ready too invade the US, and most people there had next accepted this as the truth. Funny or sad  how so many people seem to be ready to believe gross lies over the truth, reality  from their leaders now even  in churches as well. For certainty I next saw no Russians tanks at the Canadian border when I drove on to Calgary Alberta as well.I HAVE BEEN TO MANY VARIOUS DIFFERENT CHURCHES, SERVICES AND WHEN I HEAR PASTOR TRYING TO TELL ME HOW GREAT THEIR CHURCH SERVICES ARE COMPARED TO OTHER CHURCHES, I CAN MAKE A VALID REAL COMPARISON NOW TOO. THE FACT THIS PREACHER  IS BOASTING ALREADY LIKELY CLEARLY MEANS HE MISSED THE MARK OF A GOOD SERVICE.(Prov 27:2 KJV)  Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips. (1 Cor 14:33 KJV)  For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.(James 3:16 KJV)  For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

I have often encountered preachers who claimed they alone were good persons, but the reality was far from it, and visible to many next too.

The WRONGFULLY STILL Unrepentant  bully’s problem is that he or she is one of those bad persons  who only feels truly alive when voicing hostility and contempt for his “enemies.” Without that, he or she starts gasping for air. It’s his nature.. self-destructive” ..  clearly these immoral  Bully, Basher of others, Abusers of others has a disappointed, deflated ego, negative self worth,  most likely related to past unresolved guilt, as a result  of  that   the bully, he or she, tries falsely to   build  their ego up by bashing, hating others, by being an antagonists against  his proclaimed enemies, which too often also  is most people , for  he or she no longer trust anyone, and Abusers this is a common very typical approach, fact in the character build up of Bullies, Bashers, but their approach is futile, the subsequent feeling of self worth dissipates too quickly, are actually replaced by guilt,  and his ego, self worth likely needs to be recharged with new hate.. and is replaced with more and larger hatred of the others.  I have seen this type of wrong behavior not just in bad managers, bad politicians, bad persons, but  in alcoholics, and most often in Albertan rednecks ,but also  in religious   fundamentals evangelicals who promote hated towards Pentecostal Christians as well, and  now as well as the crooked pastor wrongfully  fighting for control over others.

So you boast you do not steal, or commit tax EVASION,  but next you lie, slander, bully, abuse others.. just are as guilty as if you had stole now too.

Public exposure and prosecution of these bad persons here too serves everyone’s best interest.

(Prov 4:14 KJV)  Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. 15  Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away. 16  For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall. 17  For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence. 18  But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. 19  The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.

(Prov 5:22 KJV)  His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.

(Prov 6:16 KJV)  These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: 17  A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18  An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, 19  A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Being overly assertive is as bad as being overly submissive.. it is an unacceptable imbalance

(Zec 11:17 KJV)  Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.
