Christian Heritage and Departure

July 16, 2015

 

As a representative of CHP Canada, Christian Heritage Party of Canada, I must warn that as Canadians we must never set aside our history as we look to our future.  No one can deny that the foundation of any durable structure is the most vital component, as goes the foundation, so goes the structure.  This is also true of our nation Canada.

The founders of Canada placed the footings on the word of God, this is evidenced in several examples.

The name ‘Dominion of Canada’, the motto of Canada, “He shall have dominion from sea to sea” and the phrase on Canada’s coat of arms, ‘From sea to sea’ are from Psalms 72:8.

In 1866 during discussion of items for uniting the Canadian provinces, New Brunswick Premier Leonard Tilley proposed the word ‘Dominion’ from Psalms 72.


A letter signed by John A. MacDonald – Canada’s first Prime Minister – explained to Queen Victoria that the name ‘Dominion of Canada’ was “a tribute to the principles they earnestly desired to uphold.”  The last province to join Canada, Newfoundland, has as its motto, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God.”

Many of Canada’s colleges and universities were founded by Christians or on Christian principles and our public education system was founded on a Christian principle basis.  This continues to be evidenced in the Ontario Education Act under Section 264 1(c) which today describes the duties of a teacher as:

“to inculcate by precept and example, respect for religion and the principles of Judeo-Christian morality and the  highest regard for truth, justice loyalty, love of country, humanity, benevolence, sobriety, industry, frugality, purity, temperance and all other virtues”

The Canadian Bill of Rights of 1960 begins with, “The Parliament of Canada, affirming that the Canadian Nation is founded upon principles that acknowledge the supremacy of God, the dignity and worth of the human person and the position of the family in society of free men and institutions;

Affirming also that men and institutions remain free only when freedom is founded upon respect for moral and spiritual values and the rule of law; ………………….

Above Prime Minister Diefenbaker’s signature to the Bill in red ink is written:

“I am a Canadian, a free Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship God in my own way, free to stand for what I think is right, free to oppose what I believe is wrong, free to choose those who shall govern my country.  This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind”

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms of 1982 begins with,

“Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law.”

The historical evidence of our Christian heritage is undeniable and unavoidable.

On the Canadian Secular Alliance website is a page wherein the following is posted,

“The Canadian Secular Alliance recognizes that the mention of God in the National anthem reflects Canada’s Christian heritage and salutes the great historical contributions of Christian Canadians towards the building of our nation.”

The Canadian Secular Alliance makes no attempt to deny Canada’s Christian heritage nor demean the contribution of Christian Canadians, quite the opposite – they offer a salute.

Given the overwhelming evidence that it is Canada’s Christian principled heritage that led to her greatness, it only stands to reason that departing from this heritage will lead to her demise.

As a representative of CHP Canada and candidate for the Hamilton Mountain, I unapologetically contend for the Christian worldview principles that have made Canada great and as your MP, I will commit to work toward the restoration and preservation of the same.  I seek your support in doing so.  When you vote, vote Jim Enos, Christian Heritage Party of Canada.
