Mennonite Church Canada’s Slide into Apostasy

Because this blog not only shines the light on the MB Herald, but occasionally on other Mennonite monkey business, today let’s take a look at the way Mennonite Church Canada is going. In their Prayer, Notes and News – April 2011- Equipping #115, they want Mennonites to please pray for and with the Church because this is how your financial support of Mennonite Church Canada is ministering…from across the street to around the world!

What is their financial support going to?

A Lent Booklet

Just like their Mennonite Brethren cousins, they have been celebrating Lent:

If you have not already done so, check out Mennonite Church Canada’s Lent booklet, “Called and Shaped by Jesus.” It contains family activities that began on Shrove Tuesday and carry on right through Holy Week. Download here:
Thank you for the financial support that enables us to produce resources that nurture families in faith.

Remember that Shrove Tuesday, or Fat Tuesday, is closely related to Mardis Gras and has nothing to do with Holy.

Emerging Church/Social Justice/Activists/Jesuits

For all of April, Mennonite Church Canada is promoting this:

Four days of celebration of music, art and conversation at the intersection of justice and spirituality: Announcing the first annual Wild Goose Festival, taking place June 23-26, 2011 at Shakori Hills, North Carolina (near Raleigh). England’s popular Greenbelt Christian Arts Festival comes to North America, with speakers including Brian McLaren, Jim Wallis, Phyllis Tickle, Shane Claiborne, Richard Rohr, John Dear [Jesuit priest], Ched Myers and many more. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of what has been described as “followers of Jesus on the cutting edge of Christianity in North America.” For more information and to register, go to

World Politics and the UN Goals

They also invite their people to visit and interact with the blog of Willard Metzger, General Secretary of Mennonite Church Canada, where you can read:

Always Have Time for You

I was recently part of an Inter Faith delegation of National Faith/Church leaders that gathered at Parliament Hill. Our task was to meet with federal political party leaders – Liberals, Bloc Quebecois, NDP, and Conservatives – to urge the honouring of Canada’s commitments towards the Millennium Development Goals.

After being ushered into the stately room we were soon being introduced to various MP’s and their Aides. I thrust out my hand and identified myself as the General Secretary of Mennonite Church Canada.

“Mennonites,” said the MP with a broad smile, “I always have time for Mennonites”.

Together, the above evidence shows that the Mennonite Church of Canada appears to be several steps ahead of the Mennonite Brethren on the down hill pathway to apostasy. We must pray that they will all wake up before they’ve gone too far down the wide road.

  1. Wild goose festival? Some of these events are too well named to let it pass.
    This would be terribly funny if it weren’t so frightening to see such an unholy disregard for the truth.
    About the preoccupation with Lent, someone asked me today, what is with all the Lent in our bulletin all the time? What is this, do we need it??? (from an MB) Then again in my own very conservative church for the past two Sundays the solid Bible preaching pastors have casually mentioned Lent, as in ‘in this season of Lent, let us prepare our hearts…’ Not that they meant we are to ‘do Lent’ as it is described in your post. I only mention it because it is further indication of how far immersed our Mennonite and Evangelical churches have become in this movement back to Rome. I am very certain the pastors from our church had no idea of what Lent actually means. Much like, you hear the words Eucharist and Communion being used interchangeably.
    Let’s not be so trusting and naive.
    “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.”
    for … It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”
