Christians and Politics - I can't keep silent

Christians and Politics – Especially at Election Time
Because it is election time in Canada (and soon to be in the US), I have been thinking, especially after hearing talks by a Christian politician this morning and a Christian Pastor this evening, that we as Christians don’t really put our faith into practice in the political arena.
At no time did Jesus shy away from the issues of His day – yes, they may have seemed different then than they are now, but in reality the same old failings of mankind happen today.
I am not sure when it ever became a ‘no-no’ for Christians to take political stands. We are indeed commanded to “give unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s and to God that which is God’s” and since God made everything, including Caesar, we have no excuse. We are also commanded to do all things as unto the Lord. That to me means with compassion and love yet without compromise.

Practically, every true Christian has a duty to support those who are in authority and furthermore, to support those seeking political office only if they have a moral compass that points to Christ. That leaves out many running for office but, it also means that we should be seeking those who do claim to be Christians themselves and who put their faith right out front in their campaign.
Even if there are no candidates in one’s own riding, I believe it is the duty of Christians to vote for those who follow Christ and support in any manner possible, a candidate in a close by riding that is a Christian.
There are many Christians who presently hold political office but nearly all are not allowed to bring their faith into the arena – especially when a party leader commands 100% allegiance on a social or moral matter.
There is only one party in Canada that stands for Christ and Christ alone on all issues. So why aren’t all Christians supporting or voting for these candidates? (Ask me who?)
There are two internal arguments that go something like this: “Well, they are never going to form the next government, so why should I vote for or support them, it would be wasted time and a wasted vote.”
My reply is “So, are you saying a vote for someone who loves Jesus and lives like they do and supports moral issues like He does is a wasted vote? In His Kingdom (it’s here on Earth by the way), a ‘vote’ for Christ or a Christ follower is not a waste at all in His economy.
“I have to choose someone in the riding where I live to vote for and none of them are Christians. If I don’t vote or support one of them, I am not doing my civic duty.”
Of course you must vote, but look closer into their character and moral values and even question them at candidate meetings. Ask him or her the tough questions about moral issues. Then next time around (federally, provincially or municipally) you yourself or someone you know and respect stand for office.
God will take care of our economy and the world (He is pretty big and powerful after all) and doesn’t need a particular candidate in any particular country in order to fulfil His plans. I believe the biggest issue with many Christians is that they do not truly believe that about their personal finances and living state or their countries finances and state.
It only makes sense that Christians must support other Christians. Time is getting short in more ways than one.

A Break from Tradition!

Enough of this political correctness already!!!

I normally don't talk politics especially on social media and especially under the banner of Three cord Ministries - but I am going to now. I have seen and heard so much garbage in the first few weeks of the Federal campaign that I am sickened at the back-biting, name-calling, lies and deceit that ALL the 'leaders' are displaying. In this toxic atmosphere, Christians must make a moral choice this coming October.

As for me and my house, we support the only Christian Party there is - The Christian Heritage Party (

Although they are running in only a few ridings, no other party stands on the same Biblical, moral high-ground as they do.

Ask the other parties about abortion, euthanasia, non-traditional marriage, marijuana and other drugs, social decay, pornography and sexual immorality, the new anti-Christianism and more.
By law, I am forced to vote in my riding and I must choose one of the local candidates by their party affiliation - but morally I choose to support and help out in any way possible, the closest CHP candidate - and that is Hamilton Mountain. Will you join me?

If you are a Christian, you must give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God, what is God's. You can and must do both.

The CHP may never form a government in Canada - but your Christian values can only be upheld and expressed by a CHP member. There are many Christians in the other parties but they ALL are muzzled by the requirement to follow 'party lines' on moral issues - there are very few exceptions.

Website Back 'ON THE AIR"

After a lengthy time of being 'off the air', our website is now back up. There are still a few 'wrinkles' but for the most part it is running well. If you find any 'dead' links, please let us know. The site may be a bit slower to load.

We had to find a new host and that took some time.

Blessing in Jesus' name.

What a Saviour!

Easter is the most precious time for us all to think of the sacrifice and victory that Jesus gave us by His death on the cross and His resurrection. Without both, we all would still be lost in our sin in a dying, sin-filled world.

Without Easter, mankind would be doomed in his depravity, doomed in his utter failure to redeem himself and doomed in his forever-future.

But God in His love and mercy sent His son, Jesus Christ in the great exchange of His pure and lovely righteousness for our impure and filthy sin.

What a Saviour!

His suffering was for our salvation ...
His death was for our life ...
His pain was for our comfort ...
His stripes were for our healing ..
His resurrection was for our hope ...
His return ... will be for our glory with Him.

What a Saviour!

Reflect on this this Easter week and thank God for His mercy in sparing us from His wrath by the sacrifice of the One whom he called Son and loved beyond imagination.

What a Saviour!

Be blessed this Easter!

On a Different Note

I am looking for part/time (20-25hrs/week) or contract work in the area of Technical Writing. I can author complete Data Books or Product Guides as well as Technical Reports, Test Plans, Test Procedures, Test Reports, Application Notes , Data Sheets, Information Notes and such in nearly any technical field. I believe the technical topic itself is not the real issue in good technical writing but understandability, readability, conciseness, clarity, accuracy and such.

In the past I have written for the Electronics Industry specifically the Semiconductor and Nuclear field. I have even authored Christian materials such as Bible Study Guides, Bible Teaching Notes, Mini-sermons and such. I also make simple websites using HTML, JAVA and CSS.

If you yourself or anyone you know needs good technical documents, please contact me through this Blog or my Facebook Page.

Changing Our Web Presence

Three Cord Ministries  has had an active website for all of its 13 years in existence but has decided to change to using Social Media only. Please keep involved with TCM via our Facebook, Twitter or blogspot accounts to learn what we are up to and read any new teachings, articles etc.

We are hoping to get much more active here on Blogspot in the near future. It is much easier to update than the website pages. It has been nearly 5 years since we used the blog outlet for our ministry.

TCM is still active and ministering via the web to souls around the world. Be blessed in the name of Jesus.
