-The Battle River School Division, just east of Edmonton, Alberta, is pushing a Christian school to censor certain Bible verses because they could be seen as “targeting vulnerable minorities.”
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 mennor 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.”
Diane Hutchinson, a spokeswoman for the Battle River School Division, said administrators asked the Christian school not to include those verses in its student handbook, “but perhaps use a different piece of Scripture” instead.
This may be in Canada right now and 'nowhere close to the U.S. but mark my words it is just a matter of time before this will be something that is handed down in the states! The Word of God is looked at by the World as nonsense and foolishness. And the thing that is even sadder is that people in the CHURCH are starting to look at God's Word the same exact way.
Now is when we need to be contending for the faith. Don't give up, don't give in. Press in harder than ever for the things of Jesus Christ!
