Christendom and the State: Take a Stand – Actions

1 - Denominations, churches, small groups and individuals need to contemplate the biblical model of Christian unity – one church under one God, and analyse the full extent to which this precept is not working in Canada.  Christian Canadians should view themselves as God’s chosen - members of Canadian Christendom, accountable for their roles effectively witnessing for Christ and favourably impacting Canadian governance and society for the Kingdom.  Acquiescence to governances that are fundamentally opposed to the Christian worldview only promotes popular political (non-biblical) goals like pluralism, liberalism and secularism.  And such indifference among believers to the so-called “affairs of the state” only serves to demonstrate their lack of spiritual integrity - only applying God’s Word in self-selected areas and at self-selected times in one’s life, but certainly not in the political realm and at election time.    

2 – Authentic believers should not fellowship with churches and church members belonging to denominations advocating heretical, counterfeit or apostate doctrines.  Canadian Christendom needs to define a comprehensive “augmented” creed behind which the orthodox (right) believers may rally and by which the unorthodox may be sifted out.  This “augmented” creed can become the basis for renewed unity and rejuvenated faith among Canadian Christians.

[“Fellowship” in Christian meaning is an association of believers who are regenerated members of the family of God; believers who share a mutuality of spirit.  Fellowship assumes as a prerequisite a likeness of nature.  True fellowship can only exist among true believers.  A Christian cannot have fellowship with an unbeliever (II Corinthians 6:14-16).  A Christian must not participate in pagan rites and ceremonies (I Corinthians 10:20-22).  A Christian must have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them (Ephesians 5:11).  A Christian must not participate in the sins of another person (Ephesians 5: 3-14; I Peter 4:14-18).  Error and truth cannot coexist in the same fellowship (Acts 20:29; II Corinthians 6:14-18; Revelation 18:4). A Christian must not fellowship with a person who walks contrary to the teaching of Christ (II John 9-11):Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God.  He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.  If there come any onto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: for he the biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.]

3 – Denominations, churches, small groups and individuals need to investigate the dogma of “separation of church and state.”  The dogma 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, pluralism and liberalism in the Canadian psyche need to be proclaimed as a rallying call for more Christians to literally get off their duff and do something, if not more, for the Kingdom.  A huge part of the social-political dynamic in Canada needs to be viewed as a longstanding, on-going struggle over the moral and legal principles of right and wrong, good and bad, embedded in our governance and ultimately taught to our youth.
