Dear Faith Godly,
I have been following your career from your Rebel days to present. Thank your for sharing your thoughts about where Canada is spiritually. You are absolutely right to say that the Canadian people are spiritually in a deep dark place. However, is Catholicism the answer?
Have you ever looked at the core practices and beliefs of Roman Catholicism and compared them to what the scriptures actually tell us?
To do this we need to start on common ground: Jesus. It’s fantastic that you too believe that he is the answer to life’s problems. I liked how you called him the Alpha and the Omega. (I would also say in Hebrew he is the Aleph and the Tav). Praise Adonai! In Revelation 16 we learn something else about the Messiah: “And on his robe and on his thigh he has a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. ”
What does this picture tell us? We see Jesus or Yeshua with a prayer shawl robe on and he is wareing Tzitzies over his thighs. (Did you know that traditionally tzitzies are tied in knots that add up to number 26? That number works out to the name of God: yud, hey, vav, hey or YHWH).
In numbers, 15.38-40 tells us:
“(Maftir) 37 Adonai said to Moshe, 38 “Speak to the people of Isra’el, instructing them to make, through all their generations, tzitziyot on the corners of their garments, and to put with the tzitzit on each corner a blue thread. 39 It is to be a tzitzit for you to look at and thereby remember all of Adonai’s mitzvot and obey them, so that you won’t go around wherever your own heart and eyes lead you to prostitute yourselves; 40 but it will help you remember and obey all my mitzvot and be holy for your God.” Complete Jewish Bible.
Why do I share this one example of what we Jews and Messianics do to remember the commandments of God? I share this not to ridicule you or your faith but to state fact. The Rosary is an example of “replacement theology.” This concept is an attempt to replace anything associated with the the original intentions of the person you call Jesus. (We know that Yeshua/Jesus wore Tzitzies because the woman with the issue of blood,( Luke 8. 43-48) touched them and was healed).
Yeshua the Messiah stated that he was not sent to create a religion that would coin the phrase “replacement theology.” Matthew 5. 17-20 tells us:
“17 “Don’t think that I have come to abolish the Torah or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete. 18 Yes indeed! I tell you that until heaven and earth pass away, not so much as a yud or a stroke will pass from the Torah — not until everything that must happen has happened. 19 So whoever disobeys the least of these mitzvot and teaches others to do so will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever obeys them and so teaches will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. 20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness is far greater than that of the Torah-teachers and P’rushim, you will certainly not enter the Kingdom of Heaven!” (Matthew 5: 17-20).
What do these verses mean? Yeshua makes it crystal clean that he did not come to replace the commandments with new ones. Rosaries cannot replace the fringes of white and blue hanging from my belt loops.
Sadly, not only have the Tzitzies been replaced by Roman Catholic practises but many other Hebraic and biblical traditions.
– Babies are sprinkled on the 8th day rather than male babies being circumcised on this day. (This is also a replacement for the mikvah of repentance or full adult immersion: baptism)
– It is claimed that Yeshua was born on the 25th of December (the birth date of the false godTamuz) rather than during the fall biblical feasts. “And the Word became flesh and tabernacled (in Greek) among us.” (John 1.14). Could the Feast of Tabernacles be the actual birth date of the Messiah?
– Lent is a celebration that counts 50 days and models itself after an ancient Babylonian holiday. Did you know that Messianics and Jews count 50 days from Passover to Pentecost?
– The date of Easter was changed, at Constantie’s request, because Passover was too Jewish. Did you also know that the word Easter is the English word for Ishtar, the goddess of sex and fertility?
One thing that I really like about your faith, Faith, is that you are pro-Israel and a friend of the Jewish people. Unfortunately, historically, your church has not been.
If you want to live and believe like the Apostles and Yeshua then do what they did. They kept the Sabbath on the 7th day not on Sunday. They celebrated the appointed times of Leviticus 23 and not their inferior replacements. They converted Gentiles and sent them to Synagogue (See Acts 15. 20). Overall, the truth can set you free and it can set Canada free too.
Thank your for sharing your thoughts. I enjoyed looking at the stats. Catholicism is not the answer. The character and the identity of the Lion of the Tribe of Judah makes the difference. In John 4 he told a Samaritan woman: “Salvation is of the Jews.” That truth has never changed.
God bless you
PS. It has been said that Christians have the Messiah while Jews have the Torah. Now you can have both.

On what day does the retreat start?
What Consecration Day have you chosen?
Is there a group doing the Retreat?

Anti-Judiasm and the Council of Nicea
By Rick Aharon Chaimberlin
The Council of Nicea was convened in t 325 CE (AD) by Constantine, Emperor of the Roman Empire. Constantine, a worshipper of the ‘sun-god,’ technically ‘converted’ to Christianity. His reign marked the alliance of church and state. Christians were no longer persecuted by the pagans. Instead, Christians persecuted others (including other Christians) with a zeal and a vengeance that would shock the pagans. More Christians were killed (by other Christians!) in the first century after the Council of Nicea than had been killed by pagans in the century before Nicea.
Constantine, only one year after convening the Council of Nicea, had his own son (Crispus) put to death. Later he suffocated Fausta (his wife) in an overheated bath. Then he had his sister’s son flogged to death and her husband strangled. (1) It was also during the reign of Constantine that the cross became a sacred symbol in Christianity, just as it had been in pagan religions.(2) Throughout his reign, Constantine treated the bishops as political aides. He agreed to enforce whatever opinion the majority of the bishops formulated.
The Jewish Temple was destroyed in 70 CE by the Romans under Titus. Then Israel was totally destroyed as a nation with the defeat of Bar Kochba (a false Messiah) in 135 CE. Hundreds of thousands of Jews were massacred. Most of the survivors were dispersed into the Gamut (Diaspora or Exile), many of who were sold into slavery. The final utter defeat of Israel was seen by many Christians as a sign that Israel was rejected by her God. The “Church” was seen as the new Israel. Anti-Semitism began to take a firm hold on Christianity. By the time that Constantine called the first general church council at Nicea in 325, anti-Semitism was endemic in the “Church.” The Council of Nicea was attended by 318 bishops, none of whom were of Jewish ancestry.
Passover was still celebrated by the Gentile Christian church, but the Gentiles began to see a need to differentiate “their” Passover from the Jewish Passover. The bishops decided to move the Christian celebration of Passover to the first Sunday after the Jewish Passover (in most years). The Jewish Passover always falls on the 14th day of Abib (Nisan), which can fall on any day of the week. Centuries later, the very name of Passover (or Pesakh) also became distasteful to the Gentile church, and terms such as Easter (the name of a pagan goddess) were adopted by the increasingly paganized church. Occasionally, as in 1989, the Christian observance of Easter is almost a month before Passover.
The first edict in favor of the ‘Venerable Day of the Sun” (Sunday) was made at the Council of Nicea. Until this time, both Christian and Jew generally observed the seventh day Sabbath, according to the Biblical commandment.
Civil legislation enforced the decrees of the Council of Nicea. This was a victory over the truth by civil legislation. Constantine, as emperor, presided over the entire council. The decisions of the 318 church bishops were endorsed by civil law and backed by military power.
The churches which flourished in worldly wealth were the primary churches represented by this Council. The poor and humble churches could not afford to send representatives over a thousand miles away. The Catholic Encyclopedia says, “Some bishops, blinded by the splendor of the court, even went so far as to laud the emperor as an angel of God, as a sacred being, and to prophesy that he would, like the Son of God, reign in heavens (3)
Nicea, with its theological anti-Judaism, laid the groundwork for anti-Semitic legislation of later church councils. The Council of Antioch (341 CE) prohibited Christians from celebrating Passover with the Jews. The Council of Laodicea in the same century forbade Christians from observing the Jewish (and biblical) Sabbath. (Some Christians had been observing both Sunday and the Sabbath.) Christians were also forbidden from receiving gifts from Jews or matzoh (4) from Jewish festivals and “impieties.” (5)
It wasn’t all bad news in those early centuries. Judaism was not a “prohibited sect,” according to the Codex Theodosianus of 438 CE. Rabbis were entitled to the same privileges as Christian clergy. Jews were not to be disturbed on their Sabbath or Feast Days. Their synagogues were not to be attacked, violated, burned, or confiscated. However, conversion was a one-way street. Jews could convert to Christianity, and were encouraged to do so. However, Christians were forbidden to convert to Judaism. Also, Jews were forbidden to own Christian slaves, but Christians could own Jewish slaves. Christians were forbidden under penalty of death to marry Jews. Jewish tribunals were considered valid only in matters purely religious. The Fiscus Judaicus (Jewish tax) from earlier centuries was maintained, a tax which only Jews were required to pay to government authorities.
The few protections offered by the Codex Judaicus were relatively short-lived. It wasn’t many decades until attacks on Jews and their synagogues became commonplace. The Jew was a second-class citizen, somewhat protected by law, but merely tolerated, something akin to the dhimmi status that is given to non-Moslems in Islamic countries. However, these were the “good old days” compared to the horrors that would be inflicted upon Jews in later centuries by the “Church triumphant.” Rav Shaul (Paul) commanded the Christians to “provoke the Jews to jealousy” with righteous living. Unfortunately, Christians kept only half the commandment; they provoked the Jews.
Considering the rampant anti-Semitism at the Council of Nicea, I am both surprised and disappointed when I see even Messianic Jews quote decisions of the Council of Nicea in support of certain theologies and creeds. The Council of Nicea (the first genuinely Roman Catholic council) was very creedal oriented. This is still very true of most of Christianity today. Creeds (what you believe) is far more important than what you believe. In Judaism, observance of the mitzvot (6) is the litmus test of a good Jew. Little emphasis is placed upon creeds. The emphasis upon creeds in the Christian church has resulted in the deaths of millions of martyrs and “heretics.” Christian love and charity were sadly lacking, even to other Christians. In fact, a Jew often had much better chances of survival than a Christian who was deemed to be a heretic.
I am grateful to live in a country in which honest differences of opinions can exist. Yeshua said, “This is my commandment, that you love one another, even as I have loved you.” (7) This is far more important than any of the creeds formulated by any church council.
I hasten to add the following comments: I know the difference between the genuine disciples of Yeshua and the pretenders. In this article, I have used the term Christian” even for those who were not born-again of the ruach (Spirit) of God. However, they called themselves Christians, and were considered as such by others, including the pagans. This article is not intended to slander the true disciples of Yeshua, whether they be Jews or Gentiles.

Hey Faith…Just watched this video. I am a practising Christian and I am grateful that you are bold, strong and willing to speak the truth despite all the backlash. I have followed you for a while. Just curious though, do you believe Ephesians 2:8-9 ? We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus, not by works? You were telling people to pray and figure it out…but left out confess your sins and know that you cannot save yourself. It is Christ’s blood, death and resurrection and humbly admitting you need him.
Keep up the good work…you are awesome, May God bless you richly with his love, peace and protection!
Hi Faith, My name is Lisa Ross and you probably don’t remember me but I have a huge favour for Canada. Is it possible for you to help us get this message out there on behalf of the PPC Max Bernier party…late I know but we don’t have much time. (I had my pic taken with you at the Ottawa Convoy rally in Feb/19 and I follow you on you tube 🙂
Thanks so much and keep tubing!! Lisa Ross
PLEASE COPY AND PASTE THIS POST…
THANKS SO MUCH, Lisa Ross
I just received this in my inbox from Prof. Salim Mansur. Please take the time to read it.
Also, join myself and Salim tomorrow evening on my live stream from this page. 8pm Sask, 10pm eastern.
Please take a look at this video linked below of the Quiggin Report, when you have some time on hand.
This video has now gone viral since its release over the weekend. It is a belly up revelation of where CPC has headed under the leadership of Andrew Scheer and Hamish Marshall.
The cumulative evidence of the past year has given us a window into where the brain trust of the CPC leadership has taken the party of Sir John A in appeasing Islamists in our midst and conceding incrementally to Islamism, instead of forthrightly opposing every inch of the concessions Liberals under Trudeau have been making in support of the Islamist agenda for Canada.
And now comes this video exposing the unsightly embrace by the Conservative leader of the Islamists in our midst, and an abject surrender to their demands. All of this is rationalized by the CPC brain trust so as not to be accused of Islamophobia by the Liberals and their bought and paid for media.
There can now no longer be any excuse made, or apology offered, by members of the CPC on behalf of the leadership and a party that no longer represents conservatives in Canada, nor Canadians at large menaced by the twin forces of Globalism and Islamism. Our national sovereignty is under threat, even as the CPC brain trust is out wooing Liberal voters while throwing under the bus conservatives.
It is not rocket science to infer why Maxime Bernier remains uninvited to the Munk Debate on foreign policy, and the likelihood of Maxime denied by the Leaders Debate Commission to participate in debates ahead of the October vote. All four parties to different degrees are compromised in their submission to the Globalist agenda and accommodating the Islamists in our midst. Maxime and the PPC are alone standing up in defence of Canadian sovereignty, and in an uncompromising opposition to the Globalists and Islamists, while the media and the political elite are in a state of panic given the probability of the awakening of people to how the establishment parties, which are all to the left of PPC, can be faulted for their betrayal of Canadians in general.
We are truly at a crossroad election for Canada. Our future as a sovereign state is at stake. This is not hyberbolic. The October vote is either for Canada, or for the UN Agenda; it is either defence of the Canadian people and their right to decide on who enters Canada and who does not, or for the UN to insist upon the rights of migrants to enter Canada and be accommodated at the expense of the Canadian taxpayers; it is either Canadians have the right to decide how the national economy works and how Canada’s natural resources, especially fossil fuel and natural gas, are developed and brought to the market, or the UN and environmental lobbies funded by outsiders maintain a chokehold on our national prosperity.
On how quickly and how far Canadians are awakened to what is at stake before they head to the polls on October 21st, will rest the continued survival of the experiment in building a federation stretching across the northern half of this continent begun by the Founding Fathers led by Sir John A. There never ever was a guarantee that this experiment once launched would remain invincible. There have been moments in our history where the survival of the Canadian federation loomed on the horizon but the people prevailed. This time the forces threatening our survival are far more insidious and, therefore, far more difficult to contend with and defeat. Those who truly love Canada will need immense reserve of goodwill, moral fortitude, political intelligence, and a leadership that unites Canadian despite our differences on the basis of our commonly shared values of belief in “God, Queen, and country” that brought the Founding Fathers together in the first instance. We have that leadership in Maxime Bernier and the party he founded; what this election will now test is whether we have enough Canadians to make the difference between survival and surrender.

Hi Faith and Shabbat Shalom,
here is a slide show about the early church. Check it out. God bless
YES- we need people like you- sad but true- BUT IF you want any real credibility then please do your homework BEFORE you open your mouth.
EXAMPLE: let’s go back to 2017 and your foolish comments on BETHLEHEM. FIRSTLY; JESUS was a JEW- as was KING DAVID and historically; Bethlehem was a JEWISH TOWN. BUT WHO CARES- because Bethlehem is just another town. JESUS very plainly said- “REMEMBER MY DEATH- not my birth”…… so your unfounded comments mean nothing because Bethlehem is JUST ANOTHER TOWN. JEWS are NOT TO REMEMBER IT! THAT is why there are few JEWS left there—
SECONDLY– do I remember correctly YOU SAYING that you should occupy Bethlehem and force the muslims out? AND do I remember correctly that you are CATHOLIC? You cleverly include ROMAN CATHOLICS under the umbrella term CHRISTIANS. PROTESTANTS are offended by that. YOU ARE A “LATIN CHRISTIAN” by religious definition. JESUS WAS NOT ROMAN CATHOLIC by religion….. so why would you want to insert ANOTHER RELIGION into the Bethlehem melting pot???? The Crusaders were ROMAN CATHOLIC– and protestants came along over 200 years later—
BETHLEHEM is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS just as it is not the business of the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. Palestinian MUSLIMS are taking over Bethlehem- but that is ONLY the concern of the ISRAEL GOVERNMENT- not you. You picked Bethlehem to protest over- but you did not do your homework FIRST and you lost all credibility—-
Now let’s jump ahead to August 2019—- YOU SIMPLY DO NOT REALIZE “WHO” is watching you. Your face is on YouTube “PUSHING AND SELLING” the Roman Catholic Religion….. pushing MARY???? We are NOT to worship MARY?? PUSHING religion – as in— GOD AND HIS SON JESUS CHRIST is good– but you are pushing BEING CATHOLIC- which is NOT GOOD…..
You talk about LOW IQ People and porn watchers and on and on and on……… and a ROSARY BOWL?????? YOU ARE PUSHING CATHOLIC-ism just as MUSLIMS PUSH their beliefs…….
IT IS A FACT that the Catholics REWROTE the bible —- so stop ranting about BEING CATHOLIC – and support ALL RELIGIONS…… THE WAY YOU SELL IT– unless we become brainwashed catholic LIKE YOU- we are ALL DAMNED? WOW. Wake up lady–
ANYWAY—- you will soon find out the truth— WW3 is just around the corner—-
A wise woman.Learned a lot.Thank you Faith
I love you Goldy!
Having read this I thought it was really informative. I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this information together. I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
How would a person be able to email you directly? I just had some thoughts I wanted to share but its nothing really important. I tried firstname.lastname@example.org but that didn’t work, you probably own that domain so you could have all kinds of aliases setup.
