Who Should I Vote For In 2006? Take a
Stand – Actions
1 – Denominations, churches,
small groups and individuals need to analyse the election process (and its
contemporary election results) from a Christian perspective to discover the
basis for our profound failure to influence the nation toward God-fearing governance. The historical dogma advocating separation of
church and state needs to be exploded and replaced with a current, well
articulated and publicized position on the roles of all levels of Canadian Christendom
in promoting Godly governance. The negative
consequences of the shift to secularism and pluralism in the Canadian psyche need
to be proclaimed as a rallying call for Christians to get off their duff and do
something for the Kingdom. Christian leadership
should be held accountable for properly informing their membership of
“Christian” election issues of the day and for cultivating a culture of
Christian integrity – the full application (seven days-a-week) of scripture at
home, work, church and in the voting booth.
2 – The policies, ideologies and
day-to-day decision-making of the political Left need to be analyzed by all
levels of Canadian Christendom to discover the pervasive anti-Christian tenets
of contemporary socialism. Although, the
case might be made that there are shortcomings with the practical realities available on
the political Right, it is now unequivocal that traditional
(Orthodox/Evangelical/Catholic) Christian values and principles anchored in heterosexism are no longer
part of the Left or liberal Centre political positions. Authentic believers need to recognize that
the so-called “religious Right” has strong inherent reasons for its existence. On the other hand, there are inherent reasons for the strong membership ties between the
NDP and the apostate United Church of Canada.
The defence of traditional values and ordinances is a small “c” conservative
principle, anathema to those embracing sexual liberation ideology, homosexism
and fundamental liberalism – i.e. the NDP, Liberal Party and United Church.
3 – Canadian Christendom must
recognize that same-sex marriage completes the shift of the state (courts and
governance institutions) from a position advocating a heterosexist worldview with
“toleration” of homosexuality to that of promoting a homosexist worldview with
“indifference” to homosexuality.
Equally, believers need to now acknowledge the fundamental (legislated) collision
of rights, values and interests between the state and the church (Canadian
Christendom) created by the state’s adoption of a homosexist worldview. All believers need to guard their hearts from
a toxic attitude of “indifference” towards homosexism. Christians need to look ahead and visualize
the struggles to come when secular humanists, supported by a homosexist state,
demand legislation promoting euthanasia, human cloning, varied reproductive
technologies, bisexual and polygamous marriages, liberalized child custody
rights, and the like.
4 – Canadian Christendom must
demonstrate unprecedented unity through a nationally publicized clear, comprehensive, augmented
declaration of beliefs that address the boundaries of orthodoxy in this so-called "post-Christian" era and
also organize as never before to better influence Canadian governance in a
Godly direction. Silence, apathy, acquiescence, ignorance and indifference
among believers compromises our witness and kills our influence. Christian fellowship with apostate
denominations, churches and believers must end.
Christian approval and support of fundamentally anti-Christian
organizations must also end.
