Have you ever experienced attempts to belittle you, either overtly or by a subtle roll of the eyes, because you choose to support the Christian Heritage Party of Canada? I have certainly experienced this and oftentimes wished I had a short, sweet, and effective answer to these pathetic attempts to dissuade me from my beliefs and deter me from my goals.
Just recently a short story jumped off the pages of the book I am reading by K.P. Yohannan, who is the founder and international director of Gospel for Asia. In a chapter of his book, subtitled “One Man’s Journey to Change a Generation,” Yohannan explains the absolute futility of man trying to provide humanitarian aid without the gospel message. In this example, Yohannan exposes how quickly the world forgets the importance of the foundation of their freedoms. He does this by exposing their faulty worldview. He writes:
When commerce had been established with the Fiji Islanders, a merchant who was an atheist and skeptic landed on the island to do business. He was talking to the Fijian chief and noticed a Bible and some other paraphernalia of religion around the house.
“What a shame,” he said, “that you have listened to this foolish nonsense of the missionaries.”
The chief replied, “Do you see the large white stone over there? That is a stone where just a few years ago we used to smash the heads of our victims to get at their brains. Do you see that large oven over there? That is the oven where just a few years ago we used to bake the bodies of our victims before we feasted upon them. Had we not listened to what you call the nonsense of those missionaries, I assure you that your head would already be smashed on that rock and your body would be baking in the oven.” … There is no record of the merchant’s response…
We, in Canada, have the absolute privilege of being born in one of the elite nations that were established on Christian principles. Sadly, many of our leaders and educators belittle this heritage and few schools today teach its importance to the freedoms we enjoy. What the cannibals were capable of doing on the Fiji islands before the missionaries visited is mild in comparison to what mankind has been doing in the past 100 years.
In the early 1930’s, Stalin’s murderous regime shot and starved to death numbers that some estimate at more than 10 million citizens. In 1938, Hitler started his slaughter of six million Jews, many incinerated in ovens after they were beaten, raped, and killed. Pol Pot, the Cambodian Maoist revolutionary who led the Khmer Rouge in 1963, was responsible for the estimated deaths of 2 million people, approximately 21% of the Cambodian population. In Darfur, the genocidal pillage continues today, with rape and the mass killing of hundreds of thousands of civilians. Regrettably, the list is much longer but I trust you see my point. From Communist, to Socialist, to Maoist, to Pantheist, none of these countries have a Christian heritage.
Sadly, Canadians are leaving Christian values behind and forgetting the principles and heritage from which our nation grew; unless we demand that this trend be reversed, we can be assured that our political leaders will continue toward increased government control, and more socialistic bureaucracy leading to a brutal totalitarian state.
Canadians are already feeling the pinch of higher taxes, and fewer freedoms. It’s often repeated, before and after elections, “It doesn’t matter who we vote in…they’re are all alike.” This, folks, is the writing on the wall.
As Ukrainian immigrant Alex Kovalenko told me only a couple of years ago, “I lived through the Communist takeover of my beloved country and now I see the same thing happening in Canada. The people are asleep just like they were in the Ukraine.”
CHP Canada is the only political party committed to preserving the heritage that has granted us freedoms and equalities unequalled under any other worldview. Perhaps we should also adopt the habit of rolling our eyes in “subtle” exasperation when confronted by a well-meaning citizen attempting to get us off this “CHP kick.” Why let the naysayers go on assuming that we are delusional?
It is absolute nonsense to look to the other parties, whose goal is to maintain power, rather than be involved with the Christian Heritage Party of Canada, whose goal is to restore respect for the principles upon which this nation was built. It is our Christian foundation that is paramount to the wellbeing of every Canadian and the ongoing peaceful security within our borders that CHP Canada will restore and maintain. We look different from the rest because we are!
The Fiji island story is short, sweet, effective and one I’ll keep in my back pocket— feel free to do the same.
“Yes, I belong to CHP Canada and am shocked that you don’t see the importance of protecting our freedoms.”
