The argument that ‘all people are children of God’ is inconsistent with the use of the term in the Bible in which the concept is developed to apply exclusively to believers.

The Persecution of Christians in Australia has become overtly demonstrated with the dismissal of Australia’s best Rugby player, Israel Folau, by the commercially controlled Australian Rugby Union for publicly expressing his Christian viewpoint in a social media tweet last week. The which-hunt continues for other Christians who like Mr Folau’s post, such as Wallabies players Samu Kerevi and Allan Alaalatoa, and Australian Football League (“Aussie-rules”) players Geelong champion Gary Ablett and Carlton midfielder Matt Kennedy. Staff writers from news.com.au have gone one step further and named elite sportsmen Aaron Hall and Zac Smith who have been noted to pray with them.
An American College of Pediatricians review of the impact of Transgender Idoelogy in Paediatric practise had concluded that the ideology is not based on sound science and is producing large scale child abuse. Professionals are using the myth that people are born transgender to justify engaging in massive, uncontrolled, and unconsented experimentation on children who have a psychological condition that would otherwise resolve after puberty in the vast majority of cases. Today’s institutions that promote transition affirmation are pushing children to impersonate the opposite sex, sending many of them down the path of puberty blockers, sterilization, the removal of healthy body parts, and untold psychological damage. These harms constitute nothing less than institutionalized child abuse.

The Jehovah’s Witnesses were founded in the late 1800s by Charles Taze Russell of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They claim that the Bible is their ultimate source of authority, however, the sect misuses the Bible to vindicate their own peculiar beliefs by mistranslating certain passages, taking others out of context and conveniently omitting other passages which do not support the preconceived beliefs of their founders. Their real authority is the Watchtower organization through their various publications such as “The Watchtower” and “Awake!”
The medical debate regarding euthanasia in Australia heavily favours naturalism as a worldview within a framework which excludes supernaturalism (a spiritual wordlview) via an exclusive claim to being rational and evidenced-based. Terms such as MAID (medical assistance in dying) verbally sanitise the proposed medically assisted killing or suicide. The most powerful spiritual arguments which should be considered are those which question exclusive naturalism.
The teaching of the Jehovah’s Witnesses is only pseudo-Christian. In reality, the teaching regarding blood compromises Christian freedom, confuses the nature of God, and onfuses the requirements God has of His followers. Effectively, the teaching regarding blood is not only anti-life but ultimately anti eternal life.
Essentially, Islamists seek to recover the position that Islam had in parts of the world over a thousand years ago, initially in traditional lands but ultimately, via the duty of every muslim in their society to impose sharia law, to impose it across the world. The essence of the strategy of Islamist ideology is propaganda and violence. And everyone suffers, both muslims and non-muslims.

Pope Francis, goodness and God This was posted on a facebook page. It purportedly reflects the view of Pope Francis in 2015. Whether it truly reflects Roman Catholic doctrine is uncertain. However, the viewpoint is not Christian. The Bible’s premise is that the invisible, mysterious and unknowable God almighty has revealed …
Religion, by redefining absolute truth, and cynically using it, even with sincerity, to enslave man, is the enemy of God. For to not have Truth, is a fate, worse than death. If we die in an act of terrorism, we may still live. But if we have no Truth, we are already eternally dead.
