The Bible

The Bible is literally, the Book. It is the standard by which all other authoritative historical documents are measured. It is more published and more translated from its original manuscripts than any other writing ever. It was written over a period of 1600 years by 40 people from all walks of life: kings, prophets, priests, and the apostles of Christ Jesus. The Bible has shaped the culture and society of Israel since Moses' time and since its completion prior to 70 A.D., has had a more extensive influence on every society.

The modern well-informed person will be diligent to know what the Bible says.

Roman Catholicism

Roman Catholic Church-ianity ignores basic teachings of the Bible and is therefore not a Christian institution:
  • Jesus is the sole intercessor and mediator between God and humanity. We are to pray to God in Jesus' name.
  • Everyone spiritually-reborn through faith in Christ is ordained by God as priest. Jesus emphasized that no one is to supersede God's place by saying to call no man "Father".
  • Mary, a chosen vessel of God, was a sinful human the same as you and I. Jael, who killed Sisera, was in fact the most blessed among women. After giving birth to Jesus, Mary was ceremonially unclean according to Moses' law. Joseph and Mary had several other children by natural procreation after Jesus was born.
  • Jesus is head of the Church. The truth that Jesus is the Christ is the rock that the Church is founded on, which Peter clearly understood. The apostle Peter was also married. Even after being restored to fellowship by Jesus after denying the Christ three times, he would withdraw from the Gentile believers he had been associating with when men from James came down from Jerusalem. He had to be rebuked for this error by the apostle Paul, as it did not recognize Jesus as the head of the Church.
  • Roman Catholicism elevates it's man-made traditions to the level of Scripture, which hinders many from enjoying free access to God. It pretends to be a dispenser of salvation when really it is an enormous monstrosity that deceives and can offer no guarantee of eternal life.
  • The body and blood of Christ were offered once to God, and were accepted as sufficient to take away the sin of the World. Every mass is therefore a blasphemous display of re-offering Jesus, relugating the Creator-Saviour to a place of impotence and reinforcing reliance on Mary and many other such saint-idols.

Islam

According to Islam, the one God is Allah, and Mohammed was his prophet. But not even poor Mohammed, may PBUH, was confident that all his sins were forgiven, as is evident in the most reliable of hadiths. To this day, Mohammed-ians, or Muslim Islamists, should utter the phrase preferably in Arabic "Peace be upon him" every time his name is mentioned because of this uncertainty.

One of the challenges of Islam is that if anyone could make a book comparable to the Qu'ran, then it too would be considered as divine. However the Qu'ran was revealed to only one man. Its origin is not supported by multiple witnesses as other reliable documents are. There's this other guy, Joseph Smith, who made a comparable book...

One of the core teachings of Islam is that God cannot take human form. This eliminates any possiblity of a divine sacrifice atoning for human sin. Sure, Allah is all-merciful, but he is also distant and in no position to redeem a sinful humanity.

Pride Movement

The pride movement is tremendously anti-God and anti-Bible. It has great selling power, as does anything that appeals to human pride. It mis-appropriates symbols and words with rich history and meaning, undermining the foundation of society. It says that everyone has the authority to define their own truth, when the reality is that only God has the authority to do so. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but everyone is responsible to do their own research into history to make sound conclusions. Historically, every nation that has denied God, has fallen. The God mentioned in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is the same one alluded to in our national anthem, the one who is supreme, the one who enables the proper ordering of society. The pride movement will be self-defeating because it brings deep disorder and confusion.

Evolution

This is the idea that all life gradually developed from a single cell over millions of years to all the forms of life we see today. This idea is not supported by the fossil record or by experimention or observation. It has no predictive or engineering value. Its only use is to convince people that there is no Creator-God. It is not a new idea and did not originate with Darwin.

There is too much irreducibly complex information designed into lifeforms for Evolution to be a logical conclusion. The term "evolution" is often equivocated by those who are misled and misleading to mean "natural selection". Selection of organisms, natural or guided by humans, is observable and useful. It is understood through the research of scientists like Gregor Mendel.
