-Canada: Christian School Ordered to Ban Several Bible Passages?

by Dr. D ~ June 16th, 2017

School Division Administrators in Alberta, Canada are asking a Christian school to delete several Bible passages their student handbook. The scriptures in question have to do with morality and sexuality from a Christian perspective. Here’s the story from the Blaze:

Now the Cornerstone Christian Academy, a former private school that joined the division in 2009, fears the administrators have overstepped their boundaries with a new human rights code, Metro News reported. The division has expressed concern about two passages in particular — 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 and Galatians 5:19-21.

The 1 Corinthians passage states, in part,

     “Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”

The passage from Galatians similarly reads:

     “The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like.”

Response: The Christian School administrators are concerned that this may just be the beginning of demands that would force the school to lose its Christian identity or worse yet pick and choose what scriptures and doctrines may actually be taught in the classrooms.

Interestingly both passages have to do with inheriting the ‘Kingdom of God’ and eternal destiny. They have nothing to say about how Christians should treat other folks that believe different than they do. Yet liberal folks that may not even believe in eternal life are offended? Has the same group of administrators moved to restrict any Muslim schools that may be under their supervisory care from teaching their students similar things out the the Quran? Probably not since Islam is on the PC list.

Just last week progressive US Senator Bernie Sanders invoked a religious test against a Christian that involved similar teaching about heaven which might not be politically correct from a progressive point of view. In this case, the school division wants to restrict the usage of Bible passages which offend their PC sensibilities. What is next?

Look for more action against those who want to maintain a Biblical understanding of sexuality and morality. This story is in Canada but even private Christian institutions are under attack in California including non-profits, businesses, schools, and even maybe churches. They may soon be forbidden from having any distinctive moral or ethics codes for their employees.  I was just notified in a newsletter by the Pacific Justice Institute that the CA Assembly passed a bill that would restrict all employers, including Christian institutions, from expecting Pro-Life stands and behavior from their employees. Similar legislation is quietly being prepared and introduced all across the country. Check out what is happening in your own city, state, or province.               *Top
