Religious Accommodation Letter (template for personal use)

Charter of Rights and Freedoms
Religious Accommodation Request

We have noticed that many brethren in Canada and elsewhere are facing the loss of employment for their unwillingness to comply with recent vaccine mandates in the workplace.

Here in Canada the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms (JCCF) offers this advice:

“The religious objections held by individuals to specific vaccines will vary significantly. The Justice Centre does not have a standard template to address such individual beliefs. Canadian law grants protection to an individual’s personal religious beliefs which are sincerely held, regardless of whether those beliefs are adhered to by others or even by the faith community to which the individual belongs.

In order to establish the existence of a religious objection, it will be necessary for the individual to have specific religious beliefs which would be violated in a non-trivial way by receiving a particular vaccine. These beliefs must be sincerely held, and an individual’s pattern of conduct consistent with those beliefs will help to prove that they are sincerely held.

Once a religious objection to taking a vaccine is established, an employer has a duty to accommodate that religious belief up to the point of undue hardship. The extent to which an employer must accommodate an employee’s religious objection to taking a vaccine will be dependent on the specific circumstances of the employment.”

To help our brethren who may need support in writing a letter to establish a ‘religious objection,’ we have created a Religious Accommodation Request template that can be used and modified to suit individual circumstances.

Version 2

Introduction: Solving the Mystery of the Ten Lost Tribes

The ultimate promise that God made to Abraham and his descendants was that they would inherit the world and eternal life. This promise was accepted by Abraham in an attitude of complete and total trust that our cynical age finds extremely hard to even begin to understanding, much less emulate it.

The story of Israel is the story of a single family that was chosen for divine service by the One who asserts that He created all humanity from one blood (cf. Acts 17:26). The Israelites were a people born by a series of divine miracles, as well as, circumstances common to the human condition. They were a “chosen” people, but in no way could they ever have been considered a “pet” people either in antiquity or now. After all, God is not a respecter of persons.

Judeo Christian – What do You Mean?

Comments Off on Judeo Christian – What do You Mean?, Videos, by CGP.

 

every word of GodSola Scriptura

Christians are sometimes confused by the term Judeo Christian. Judeo Christian does not mean Jewish Christian or Messianic Jew, so what does it mean?

Let me explain what Judeo Christian means, for those who are without background in the topic; the words Judeo Christian are most often used to describe the biblically based religious, moral, and ethical heritage of certain western societies. But there is a more complete definition of Judeo Christianity:

A belief system and lifestyle founded upon the principle of Sola Scriptura (by bible alone). The Holy Bible, in its entirety, (Hebrew and Greek scriptures) is a complete and divinely inspired compilation of books written for revelation, instruction, and reproof.
2 Timothy 3

God’s Plan for his Children

God has a plan that has been consistent through history as shown by the unified purpose of God’s teachings and by the personal examples of the faithful: from Abel to Christ and his apostles.

The Bible is a comprehensive life-map designed by God the Father and spoken by the Word to provide the path to a good physical life and the only path to eternal life through Christ, the Rock of our Salvation, YHVH, the Lord of Hosts and King of Kings. It contains historical eye witness accounts, memoire, poetry, teaching, and prophecy in one integrated package written over the centuries. It’s themes and purpose are consistent  and for those who read it’s message, believe it, and then act on it the promise is one of an abundant life walking in harmony with the Creator.

A Brief History of the Scripturalists

Judeo Christianity emerged into the English-speaking world during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I of Great Britain in the late 1500s, as part of the non-conformist Reformation movement. More

What is Our Core Identity? Where do We Belong?

    When Society Splinters – Where do We Belong

Is North American society at a major cultural turning point that will define or redefine our core identity? And what is our personal core identity? Where do we belong in a time of political, economic, and cultural upheaval? In the past century the world has experienced the ‘break-up’ of several once powerful nation-states into a multitude of warring civil groups. The core cultural identity of these areas was not sufficient to stop the splintering of society into multiple factions. And the end result for the individual was often catastrophic. Millions died and millions more became fearful and disillusioned. So this presents a question for Christians in times of political and social upheavals. Where do we belong and what is our core identity? More

Spiritual Warfare – Armour of God

Comments Off on Spiritual Warfare – Armour of God, Videos, by CGP.

 


armour of God banner

Paul gives us a detailed description of the armour we need to wage spiritual warfare. He warns us that we have an enemy who will attack at every opportunity, so we need to understand his tactics. We need to make the spiritual preparations to be able to take our stand in battle and be victorious.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the [a]wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [b]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
Ephesians 6

Personal Responsibility – God’s Perspective

Dealing with Addictions

With the rising use of fentanyl, the issue of addiction and drug related death has made news headlines. And yet, there is a lot of controversy over the “harm reduction” strategies, and “safe-injection sites” that are touted as solutions to the problem. These methods lack a serious look at the issue of personal responsibility in solving problems of addiction. For the scoffers who are caught up in their destructive lifestyles, and for the “addict enablers” who out of compassion or duty continue to support people in their addictions, counsel from God’s word might fall on deaf ears. However, biblical instruction when given to a wise person will have the effect of helping them assume their personal responsibility in order to effect change – and live productive lives. So what does God have to say about this crisis? More

Angels — Fact and Fantasy

No Comments, Videos, by CGP.

 

Angels — God’s Messengers

There is a growing fascination with angels and much of it is based on fantasy and not fact. In scripture the birth of Samson, John the Baptist, and Jesus were all foretold by angels. Angels played an important role as messengers delivering God’s word and revealing his will to his people. But there was also a trap, a danger that Paul and Peter warned about, for there were those in their time who began to worship angels. So what does scripture tell us about the nature of angels. Do people become angels? Or does God have a plan for humanity that surpasses that of the angelic hosts? What is the spiritual reality?

Old Heresies & New Revivals – Dead Sea Scrolls

No Comments, Videos, by CGP.

 

When the Past is never Really Past

Heresies seem to be the norm in history. And according to John’s writings old errors and deceptions are recycled into ‘new’ heresies. That is why he told his readers to ‘test he spirits’ as there would be false teachers. Paul also counselled believers to ‘test all things’ and not be gullible, falling prey to old heresies that were dressed up as new truth. Jesus warned of powerful deceptions that would test the ‘very elect.’ But he also provided a guide that could be used to determine whether some idea was true or heretical.

During Jesus’ ministry there were many sectarian groups, and one with considerable influence was the ‘Yahad’ of the Qumran community. In the writings of Jesus and his disciples we are given many examples that directly contradict the heresies that this sect of Judaism were teaching in the first century. Learn more about these heresies in history and their effect on modern Christianity. What was old is new.

A New Social Order – Chanukah & Maccabees 2

No Comments, Videos, by CGP.

 

The Maccabees Lessons for Our Time

Believers in all ages have faced the challenge of resisting the zeitgeist of their time. In order to enter the ‘narrow gate’ God’s people often had to refuse the allure of the broad path that the society was following – a path that would eventually lead to destruction. And yet how easy it would be to just ‘go with the flow’ and adopt the practices, approaches, and societal norms. The history of the Maccabees teaches God’s people many lessons about how to avoid the ditches of compromise and complacency. The hellenistic forces of the time were mandating the renunciation of biblical values, but there were those faithful few who held tightly to the truth and did not compromise with their God-given spiritual heritage. Are we following in their footsteps?

Wisdom to Stand in Perilous Times – Chanukah 1

wisdom to stand in the lightWisdom and the Word

From the beginning, The Word of God has given his people the wisdom to stand against opposition and the powers of darkness. At creation, the Lord God’s wisdom brought light to cast out the darkness. Through wisdom the Lord created the world, the sea, and the sun and stars to shed light on the earth. It has always been the Lord who has provided light and life. And though those in darkness may try to understand they cannot because they reject the Lord who is the source of light, They may even try to overpower the light of life but they cannot. In the end it is the Lord who will defeat the darkness by his wisdom. So do we have the wisdom to stand with the Lord of light, and hold-out against the darkness that may surround us? More

Faithful Guardians

God had given Moses the role of leading his people Israel out of Egypt and to the Promised Land. Trained as a shepherd Moses understood this sacred trust to guard and shepherd God’s flock. Following in the footsteps of his Lord, who would later offer his life for the people, Moses demonstrated godly love for those he served, for forty years he was the one faithfully guarding the flock. Similarly, Jesus’ demonstrated his love for his disciples, and he encouraged them to emulate his example of protecting those who were in their care. The love that Jesus spoke about was not mere emotion, but commitment to choosing and doing what God prefers, by the power of his spirit. Do our spiritual leaders demonstrate this kind of love? More

Official translation of the Halachic delineation

rendered and signed on the 22nd

of Marcheshvan (after hearing eight hours of

testimony from experts and other

witnesses), with partial additional elaboration:

We the undersigned convened together to render judgement regarding the new “Covid 19 vaccine” (which we shall henceforth refer to as “injection”, “vaccine”, or “mRNA”, although our intention is to include the “Adenoviral vector DNA” vaccine as well), and we heard testimonies from experts whose expertise is in this field. 

We also heard from doctors who invented and manufactured the mRNA, who testified as to its function (most doctors in medical practice are not experts in these matters at all, and from our experience and as is well‐known, they merely relate the information provided to them by the NIH, CDC, etc.).

 

They illustrated to us the profound danger and harm inherent in this new technology. They showed us how the governmental agencies and the pharmaceutical companies deny this fact, and how they conceal the data, making it so difficult for the public to realize the severe adverse reactions and mortalities that have befallen so many people who received the injection.  More

A matter of Trust and the fiery furnace

Worthy of Trust?

Childhood memories of the days before credit and debit, bring to mind the sign on the cash register that said, “In God we trust, all others pay cash.”
Due to the fickle nature of the human heart that Jeremiah describes as deceitful and wicked, we can often find ourselves wondering about the issue of trust. Who is worthy of our trust, and why? Many of those who are trying to escape addictions and change their lives wrestle with the bad choices they had made previously. Often these choices were the result of misplaced trust that ended in incarceration or mental health issues. More
