Our Mission

The mission of ARPA Canada is to educate, equip, and encourage Reformed Christians to political action and to bring a biblical perspective to our civil authorities. ARPA Canada exists because we care. We care about our nation, our communities, our families, and our freedoms. Most of all, we care about what God says is good and right. Jesus Christ told us that the greatest commandment is to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” and to “Love your neighbour as yourself.” How do we show love? By living our lives in devotion to Him.

Every once in a while, we see incredible moments in the House of Commons. A couple weeks ago, ARPA Canada invited you to pray for Member of Parliament Mark Warawa, facing a grim prognosis due to a terrible cancer diagnosis. This past week, he gave his farewell speech in the House of Commons, to which MPs from each of the three major parties responded. If you watch any 30-minute Parliamentary exchange this season, this is the one to watch. The person and work of Jesus Christ features prominently in this video. The witness of a Christian politician being a Christian first and a politician second obviously left an impression on both sides of the aisle. As Mr. Warawa states, To God be the glory.

Ending Suffering: The Palliative Alternative - Part 8

Check out this passionate call to the church on how to respond to the new legal reality of assisted suicide.

I do not have the answers but know what I believe . Even families can DIFFER or be different or never thought about this, until brought together . Or unless in their profession which also may differ with their own personal opinion ! As we know , we are currently dealing with these topics as a family here in BC being swelled up in discussion in grass roots like the long time cannibis topic had swelled up changed drastically not to my understanding and also living another province or country our islanders do being more travelled or with family friends elsewhere . It can become a severe problem that in aguement , differences takes away life from the subject of right to life for the individuals palliative or with disease incurable or pregnancy at the moment living be decided ! And especially pressured by others involved . And very hard to be objective , even making a personal opinion to stick to , to go against medical opinion at the moment , or family that differ or have not had to form an opinion .

You have a lot of relevant topics ARPA making what some of us are in agreement and to improve upon : not to be afraid to discuss this with family & friends or others , right to life NOT abortion , NOT euthanasia, NOT physician assisted death , NOT medical staff pressured to concede by colleagues who are not in agreement Very distraught often the family does not know their own mother or father’s wishes as a Christian to live though maybe sick , unwell just needing palliative caregiving instead then a death sentence ! ! I have witnessed this happen so quickly by a patient friend’s become involved to come to the bedside as distanced family to make preparations to end a life in a sudden diagnosis not shared with other family such like vague COPD umbrella . And when they were Christian wanting to live instead . It was very upsetting , knowing them to come alongside , advocate their wishes as a friend . And when family did otherwise. I & told my Pastor . frustrated I could do nothing bc the decision usually is given to family to rule .Seeing my friend distraught , speaking one moment she wanted to live be better . Not aware the doctor was asking her a decision to remain live out her life in her community hospital . To call her family ..Or to go to another hospital nearby . In 24 hrs she was living one moment then not conscious in ICU the next unaware , unable to speak her wishes to live . When u r succumb to oxygen deprived thinking or sick unwell your mind I’d focused on all that just to get better . Sometimes can be confusing what is being said . This doctor gave a choice in a way referring to stay remain in. small rural hospital for the patient my friend or bring other family and go to another hospital think she would have a better chance to live , that quickly turned out differently gasping for air being applied oxygen mask trying to speak to me reaching out with hands sitting telling me to come closer . Which I was denied bc I was not family . And when others step in as family they do not know their parent well enough , knowing how they feel when not unwell ! It is a very delicate balance with opposing Christian beliefs that can bring a different out come and relief for that unwell, sick person . Especially if the rest of family are not believers ! They r invited making decisions that may not be in agreement with their unwell parent , that could recover ! Yet the same happened to another we were told , who believed in saving , in the outcome of a life or a mother found in a diabetic coma , waiting in prayer, put in hospital , again to oppose to end her life instead , pull, the plug to support life . But who the family , instead waited in prayer for 4 months by her hospital bedside ! There are some adults who live their life and their family is not aware until it becomes critical or a crisis in a hole range of emotions , one moment living , functioning on 2 feet , then the next unwell suddenly worse in hospital ! How many of us have been in that situation or known of someone . Even though discussed talked with family m it can change suddenly worsening to pressure family with medical opinions of a doctor walking in , Unknown to them , or the patient saying otherwise , “ pull the plug ! “ There is little chance for quality of life . And this is being said the same the moment a person ages becomes older in appearance or function , to end their life instead . Many older or aging often say aloud they want to die in hospitals or facilities bc they are afraid or mostly alone with no one to comfort their anxieties which can increase for something as simple as lack of oxygen or bad flue or other symptoms they ar suffering . Which require some one coming alongside to gently speak with and for them , in discernment . Or in prayer , song , laughter or calm their fears when unwell . I know this & as a family member I was asked many times about my opinion for even competency of an elder by police , or ambulance when they were having meltdowns distressed . I could of said otherwise , but as a truthful guarded Christian , said they were capable . Though I suffered more by their meltdowns rages , I protected their integrity when in crisis or in hospital . Often I find when those whom are young are asked their option of life or competency of another person unwell or in distress . They lack the maturity but may make a selfish comment that suits them to even end another’s life when asked . This you can test even in your own family who will,or may say each something different of their parent or loved one , Thank you sincerely for pointing out in this ARPA post and to make public aware , > but can u please give LINKS for the motion or bill on federal platform page for those of us to petition our provincial MP or include our support opposing these .Help us with the wording , to agree as being spoken here .
