It is absurd to take a poll as to how valid God's moral laws, standard are firstly. Human polls will not cause God still to change his undeniable and compulsory standard of Holiness. Polls can be interesting though.
"MONTREAL, Quebec, June 12, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Leger Marketing conducted a telephone poll of 1,508 Canadian adults between April 17 and April 23. The poll results, with have found that an alarming 11% of Canadians do not consider pedophilia immoral. The question was in no way slanted. Respondents were asked: "Do you consider the following behaviour as immoral?" and to "pedophilia" 81% responded 'yes', 11% 'no', and 8% did not know or refused to respond. Pedophilia did, however, rank as most immoral of the items in the poll.
Second on the list were extra-marital affairs. 74% of respondents listed marital infidelity as immoral, while 23% did not believe it immoral.
Interestingly, only 17% of respondents said they considered divorce to be immoral, with 78% not considering it such. (A clear problem of sexual lust cause many people, even professing christians to have this option open contrary to God still forbidding divorce for most reasons but divorce is in the same league as an extra martial affair, prositution according to Jesus and apostle Paul)
Prostitution was ranked third, with 68% indicating they considered it to be immoral, and 29% not.
Over two-thirds of respondents said they believed underage sexual relations were immoral, with 65% of those questioned saying sexual relations before age 16 were wrong, with 31% not considering it immoral. Alcohol abuse was given a similar ranking as under-age sex, with 65% saying it was immoral and 33% not.
Women condemned child abuse, marital infidelity, prostitution and under-age sex more strongly than men, ranging from a difference of 6 to 13 percentage points.
Men, however, responded more strongly against abortion, with 35% saying it was immoral. Women were not far behind, with 33% indicating they believed abortion to be wrong. Abortion was considered immoral by just over a third of those polled, at 34%, with 60% considering it not immoral.
On the question of homosexuality, as well, men responded more strongly than women. 37% of men said they believed homosexuality was immoral, compared to 26% of women. One-third of respondents (31%) said homosexuality was immoral, while 63% believed it not to be so.
58% of respondents said pornographic films were immoral, with significantly more women responding (68%) than men (46%), the greatest gap between male and female responses in the poll.
Blasphemy was seen to be immoral by more than half of respondents, with 51% saying they considered it to be immoral, markedly higher than the results for abortion, homosexuality, divorce or contraception. Again, men responded less, with 45%, over 57% of women.
Only 8% of those questioned said contraception was immoral, with slightly more men than women responding. On the question of divorce, more men than women said divorce was immoral, with 19% for men and 16% for women. The poll results are published online in incomplete form. LifeSiteNews.com contacted Leger Marketing to obtain fuller details on the poll, which are presented in this article." http://www.lifesite.net/ldn/2006/jun/06061204.html See the poll results online:
(Mat 7:3 KJV) And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. (Mat 7:15 KJV) Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves... 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (Gal 6:7 KJV) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (Gal 6:8 KJV) For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. (2 Tim 2:15 KJV) Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.17 And their word will eat as doth a canker: of whom is Hymenaeus and Philetus;As we have seen with Dan Brown and the Da Vinci affairs, ( see http://two.fsphost.com/Bible/b/jesus.htm ) some persons falsely still do have a preset personal agenda, in their writing and preaching, pastors and authors now included, and too often it is not the truth they are expounding but their own false even pet theologies still too. Their most common approach to do this is also to neglect critical related verses in the Bible, to wrongfully totally exclude, ignore them.. most people are too ignorant, too lazy to spot this. Sad. Some people are clearly false or too lazy to study the Bible and the truth they can never know the truth thus too
(Eph 5:11 KJV) And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
The visible "Babbling" fools or so called expositors who also do still try to do an expository of the scriptures based mainly on their own limited personal experiences, mere human limitations and understanding and some of these persons they are still just mere human fools excusing their wrong doings as mere human frailties and not rather rightfully repenting of them as unacceptable and un repented sins too.
One preaching the Gospel is not an acceptable to anyone personally living it as well, pastors and elders included. And one acting supposedly in love does not exclude one from being truthful too. (Rev 3:19 KJV) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. (Prov 27:5 KJV) Open rebuke is better than secret love. (Prov 27:6 KJV) Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful. (1 Tim 5:20 KJV) Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear. (1 Tim 5:21 KJV) I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality. (1 Tim 5:22 KJV) Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men's sins: keep thyself pure.When I encounter a deviate Church Pastor I normally first ask him of he was specially called directly by God into the ministry and most of them tend to admit they have not.. then I examine his educational Library and I next review, note his pet library of reference books, favorite authors and note he is clearly still ignorant of the Bible itself too.
Not everyone who calls Jesus Lord will enter Heaven for sure as well as Jesus himself has said above. It is not just how you start the race but also how you finish the race that counts.
Turning one's whole life unto God, following after God's will daily, and reading the Bible daily, daily praying was, practsing God revealed words to us is not optional for any Christian or pastor now as well. Blessed only are all the doers of the word, includes everyone now too.
I have learned a long long time ago that when you stand up and preach the truth the devil will immediately try to discredit it, you as well, and will send, use one of his false followers, spin doctors to do it as well. So what? The truth is undeniable still.
We do know that in the secualr laws, the punishement of the crime reflects the nature of the crime but what about breaking God's laws?
Well I too have personally witnessed and seen that God is not as tolerant as many of us may think even to our own personal wrong doings and he God tends to act upon some matters more quickly than the others. Even matters such as lying, alcoholism, drug usage, adultery, poverty, abusing poor people, stealing, abusing others, pornography, corrupting minors where the Individual's personal punishment from God here on earth starts to work almost immediately even if the person is not fully aware of it. Some of the punishment is more rapid and more drastic than the others too even here on earth.
"Launch of new movement Jun. 15, 2006. 01:00 AM About 150 people have gathered at a Mont Tremblant resort this week to launch what's being called a new "progressive" movement in Canada. It's mainly made up of Liberals — two former deputy prime ministers, Anne McLellan and John Manley are co-chairs."Get some real fresh, viable blood if you want to revitalize the Liberal party now in reality.. and not these already proven losers..
"CBC pulls Douglas show over inaccuracies The CBC is pulling Prairie Giant: The Tommy Douglas Story from rebroadcast and sales for home and educational use, citing historical inaccuracies in the television miniseries' portrayal of the late Saskatchewan premier and former federal agriculture minister James "Jimmy" Gardiner.The Gardiner family, historians and politicians raised concerns about scenes such as Gardiner giving a provincewide radio broadcast condemning strikers in 1931 as Communists and undesirable immigrants. That speech never happened and Gardiner was not even premier at the time.Complaints were also raised about the teetotaller Gardiner drinking alcohol and an overall depiction of his character as mean, arrogant and vindictive.His portrayal in the dramatization was sort of inconsistent with the historical record. . ".
The CBC Portraying an lifelong abstainer tea totter as an alcoholic? and no one had prior to this had even stopped them? How they the CBC could go wrong on such basics is way beyond me except to say it was deliberate. The CBC definite unacceptable Character assassination, slander , contributing to the moral degeneration of Canada as well should be grounds not only for the cancellation of this shows but should be ample grounds for the closure of the CBC in general for it shows us all clearly what the CBC now really is like. What the CBC will try to now also portray the bad, crooked, alcoholic politicians as the decent persons too? Unacceptably really poor journalism on the CBC part now as well.
