Here are the CBC talking points for one fine day in August, 2020: Finance Minister Bill Morneau did do a silly thing, but his resignation has nothing to do with the WE Charity scandal; Chrystia Freeland will fill his post, which is great because she will be the first woman ever to fill it, and we are in a ‘she-cession,’ not a ‘re-cession,’ what with all the unemployed women out there; since an epidemic is no time for partisan politics, don’t judge the Liberal government if it’s crooked.
This, essentially, is what I heard on CBC Radio when Bill Morneau resigned after his latest ethical breach. The CBC covers for the corrupt Liberals, warns us not to judge, and entirely dismisses unemployment affecting men.
Crooked financial affairs are called ‘a false balance’ in the Bible, which kind of balance is an ‘abomination to the LORD.’ (Proverbs 11.1.) This covers PM Trudeau, his finance minister, and their associates in crime who are plunging Canada into irrecoverable debt. Whoever commits what is abominable will be judged by the LORD.
“Riches profit not in the day of wrath” (Proverbs 11.4.) This covers, not only our politicians, but the richly-paid CBC, which invariably defends Liberal profiteering at taxpayers’ expense. The CBC is made up of people, real people that are made, not only of flesh and bone, but of soul and spirit. Like everyone else, these people have sin natures that make them accountable to God. Riches gotten from the taxpayer via the unrighteous government might profit somewhat now; but they’ll profit no more than mothballs in the day of God’s wrath. If gold cannot save, be sure that mothballs can do nothing.
“Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you” (James 5.1-4.) This judgment shockingly fits both our politicians in Ottawa and the CBC hosts across the country. Yes, it shockingly fits—even the part about condemning and killing the just. How many persons have been driven to suicide on account of lost livelihoods?—: small businesses and jobs that were cut off due to the cruel obstruction of our oil sector and then because of a ‘pandemic’ that has done less harm than the annual flu! And while businesses are being ruined, and their owners killed through loss of hope, what does the government and the CBC do? The government fills its pockets even more than usual; and the CBC madly helps to extend quarantine measures as if the bubonic plague is threatening to kill off the whole world. The CBC wants more billions for more years of fake work; so it does what it can to make sure the lying Liberals continue to rule, just in case a conservative might finally live up to his promise to defund it or at least diminish it. But there will be a reckoning. There is a LORD who judges what is abominable; there is a day of wrath approaching; there is a day of slaughter preparing: a slaughter by the LORD of sabaoth. From this there will be no stonewalling, no filibustering, no evasive speech, only irresistible acquiescence.
“Repent, for the kingdom is at hand.” This command, if humbly responded to, can still lead to salvation from the coming wrath of God. It may be that a person has better odds of seeing a UFO than catching a politician reading a Bible; and better odds, too, of getting struck by lightning than hearing a CBC host do something else with the Bible than make fun of it. Trudeau and Morneau are rich. A CBC host, like Wendy Mesley, for example, is rich. (Her salary was well beyond the quarter million dollar mark the last time I checked.) She’s probably still getting paid even though she’s under some kind of suspension for using the N-word. “A rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 19.23.) Yes, hardly, but “with God all things are possible” (verse 26.) When have we witnessed a politician or a CBC host repent, though? I will not say that they are all past the possibility of receiving grace to do so. But I do confess that sometimes—maybe most times—I have a hard time believing that I will ever see or hear an instance of it.
