Pastor Tom Newton of Cornwall Ontario – Letter to the Editors: Legalizing prostitution.

prossyCornwall Ontario



“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34).  From the track record of the Supreme Court in past and recent decisions, the court has never read this verse just quoted.  Nevertheless, the Holy Scriptures are for them: “These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates” (Zechariah. 8:16).  This is what the Lord God of Heaven expects of those who are in authority, those who are to rule over the people in righteousness.


The Bible is very clear that prostitution is a very terrible sin. The practice of prostitution is a direct attack against the honourable institution of marriage, which is the foundation for a good and healthy family.  The act of prostitution is an immoral act, and those who participate are committing the sin of adultery. The desire to legalize prostitution is not a mark of liberty and a progressive society, but a sign of reprobation – meaning, God is giving up our society to more sin, as He removes His restraining hand that is upon us. That the Supreme Court and our government – on any level – is considering such a legalization is sure proof that God has allowed fools void of right judgment to rule over us.


“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34).  When will “sin is a reproach to any people” come to pass? To whom is the Supreme Court accountable? To whom is our government accountable? What will be next? Legalized incest, pedophilia, and polygamy? Oh, God have mercy on us, and on our children, for the Lord Jesus’ sake!  “Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled; but God will judge fornicators and adulterers” (Hebrews 13:4).

  1. Links of interest posted on “News from Calvary Baptist Church’s Facebook” – which we must not forget them. This is for Furtz and Patrick, and all other lovers(non-lovers) of global climate change-

    So I believe it has to be Furtz last observation that is true – 2Pe 3:7 “But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men”.

    2Pe 3:10-11 “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved….”.

    So it is either Repent, or burn!

  2. I’ll take a pass on that repenting thing. I was born OK the first time.
    Was searching Google Maps for that Lake of Fire. Can’t find it.
    Is it somewhere near Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park?


    Patrick you can’t post comments on CFN with a pseudonym without registering first as per Letter to the Editor requirements. Email if you wish to.

  4. Furtz the lake of fire is real and I will get the Pastor and other Protestants down my back on this one but the Virgin Mary appeared in Fatima Portugal in 1917 and showed them what hell was and told them many things that were about to happen. I believe this and much more. About the Bible I sure do believe it and I will admit that the Bible has been translated from very ancient texts of different ancient tongues to English, French, etc. Many things could get misconscrued in the translation and that part I can agree on and my husband said the same when you translate from one language to another that you cannot translate word per word but only the meaning.

    Furtz I would not throw you in the lake of fire nor throw spaghetti at you. Only you can come to terms with the Good Lord and I know that He loves you too and sinners as well – the Lord loves the sinner but hates the sin. I laughed so much about you living in Conservative Bible Belt. I made so many mistakes typing that I had to keep deleting every stroke since I could not control my laughter thinking about you living in such an area. LOL LOL. ROLF! You are a funny one that is the truth. Furtz the Protestant faith has many doctrines because each one has their own translation and nothing wrong with that. When I would read a passage in the Bible (KJV) I would come out with anywhere from 6 to 10 different meanings sometimes. Don’t blame Pastor Newton because he has his own doctrine and is a good man just duck when he throws the spaghetti. LOL LOL. You too are good Furtz and funny.

  5. Ok, I did find a Fire Lake on Google Maps, about 300Km straight north of Sault Ste Marie. If Newton’s god tried to toss me into that lake right now, I’d just bounce off about a two foot layer of ice. For sure it would hurt, but my injuries wouldn’t be caused by excessive heat.
    @ Jules. Coming to terms with an imaginary god is not high on my list of things to do. Right now, I’m more concentrated on scrounging up extra firewood to get through this stinking cold winter.

  6. LOL LOL. The lake of fire is not in Sault Ste Marie that is for sure – more like a lake of ice. The lake of fire would be world wide and nobody really knows for sure. You are funny Furtz and I can’t stop laughing. You must be feeling awful cold to look for a lot of wood to keep warm.

    Stella there are many Islamic faiths and the Sunnis and Shia hate one another and there are other Islamic and other types of faiths besides these two. Anyway it isn’t just religion here but politics involved in all of this and it stinks even worse than our own. One time my husband asked his eldest sister (the one who died) who she thought was going to be the president of their country and just as he asked that the line was cut. When he called back his sister told him not to talk politics because it is like Argentina and those places where they kidnap you and you disappear. There is no democracy.

    There was an Islamic man lately who was killed in a car bomb and he was a member of the government and was going to testify on behalf of the Hariri assassination. Former US ambassador Jeffrey Feltman (a Jewish man) liked this Islamic man very much and yes of opposite faiths for sure. Mr. Feltman speaks fluent Arabic and a very well educated man.

    The whole entire Middle East is an insane asylum with all the troubles. This will not end until Jesus returns to earth. Each faith is expecting a different messiah when all the time Jesus is the messiah for everyone and everyone will know that eventually when that happens. There are plenty of mighty good Jewish people and there are some good Islamic people. We cannot tell people what to believe nor not to believe and it is up to them to come around just like our Furtz. It sure is a very cold winter Furtz and one that we haven’t seen in quite a while. Stay warm.

  7. You guys are all brainwashed and crippled mentally …..relying on your imaginary celestial friends to rule the world and rid it of its evils……..nuts all……can’t make it on your own……you need all these religions and you are not even ” Christians “…….Hypocrites to life!…..Molesters of all children’s minds…that’s what you are!….you’ll see when your karma comes back to you as you take your last breath…..remember to have your bibles to save you from the fires of hell ….Hope you bring a good ” Sun screen” …cause you’ll need it where your going….for perverting the human mind with feeble minded fables of control………You are all so insulting in your quests for the truth ….you are missing the whole point of…what Truth is……You are all thinking Just Us….Justice….you are all ” French Kissing” that Snake you invented…..

  8. @ marc Carriere. I think there are some sane people posting comments on this site. Are you suggesting that we are all nuts?
    @ Jules. I’m a bit confused. Your pal Newton has been telling us for years that his god will be tossing non born-again folks into a fiery lake to burn for eternity. Then, about a year ago, he said his god will incinerate the province of Ontario because Kathleen Wynne became premier. Now you are saying that this crazy god will set the whole planet on fire! What’s the deal? Throwing a bunch of non-believers into a fiery lake is pretty bad, but incinerating the whole planet seems a bit extreme… no? Next time you are talking to your god, maybe you could save the world by getting the jerk to hand over his matches.

  9. marc Carriere – writes “…your karma…”. Don’t you mean the god of luck, chance or fortune? Your religion is showing!

  10. Furtz I like the Pastor very much even though I do not agree with everything that this good man says. The Pastor has his own doctrine which is a Baptist faith that he was born and raised with and studied it intensively in the university that he attended. There are many Protestant doctrines and each one has their own. I have listened to many preachers of the Protestant faith on the net saying the same thing or similar to Pastor Newton where you have to be a born again Christian to be saved. In some ways yes where you have to believe in God (Yawee) the Father and Jesus (Yashua) Christ the Son before you can be saved. I have heard that so many times from different denominations but I am not entirely sure of that to be an exact truth. In my Catholic faith you do have to believe in God and Jesus to be saved and here is hell which is known as the lake of fire. I have heard that the lake of fire is a terrible torment and that you are away from God forever. There will be plenty of people thrown in that lake of fire. I will say one thing is that the Pastor is a great deal more expert on the Bible and religion itself than the rest of us and I respect this good man and his word. We are different but the man is good and should be respected.

  11. @ Jules. Mr. Newton may or may not be a good person, but the god that rattles around in his imagination is pretty nasty. His god, according to Newton, seems intent on torturing people with eternal fire, and ultimately incinerating the planet with his giant blow-torch! How sick is that? Contrast that to my god, who only wants people to be happy and eat spaghetti with yummy sauce. Newton’s god obviously has some serious anger issues and needs treatment. My god seems to be well adjusted and gets along with people very well.

  12. Furtz speaking about incinerating the planet I have heard that before not too long ago in fact. The world went through a terrible deluge way back in the days of Noah and God told Noah to build that ship and to save as many animals and people as possible. Many people perished during that great deluge. I have heard that the next time it will not be a deluge but a great fire. Yes the Pastor is right in what he said. People have committed too many sins and still do to this day and worse today. I bet the Pastor preaches fire and brimstone in his congregation. LOL LOL. That would surely awaken the sheeple from their pens. LOL LOL. ROLF!

  13. Hookers saved my marriage. What happened to my last comment?

  14. @Patrick…the proof of something greater than ourselves exists all around us call it God or what you will religion is a personal belief system that no one individual has the right to judge. There is nothing therefore to prove .

  15. @marc Carrier
    Something inside tells me not to give nourishment to your interesting comment.

    Anyway marc,. many of the people that post here are intelligent, staunchly individualistic people. People who really don’t care about or care for silly generalizations.
    If you want to swim with these fish you better start using your brain. because right now you sound like a teenager who’s hormones are getting the best of him (her) and you’re way over your head..
    If you care enough to come and visit, then consider expressing your feelings in a more mature manner.
    Your current stance is sad and worrying.
    Intelligent people like to debate things it’s how we learn and grow.

  16. @Michael Clifton…in regards to your comment of debate Marc Carrier suggests that sun screen will be required where some are headed at death. To believe in hell one would have to believe in heaven therefore it would present itself that Marc is at a crossroads if you will in respect of his belief system.

  17. @David Oldham
    Bon Mots!

  18. Yes Jules. All animals, including human, that exist today can be traced back to Noah’s passenger list.
    It must have been quite the boat!

  19. Furtz it is true that we all can trace our ancestry way back (if only that were possible) LOL LOL. Yes we all have originated from Iraq and all those countries from the many thousands of years ago. I want to say as well if there wasn’t God then how come we are all of different races – white, red, brown, black and yellow. Someone sure made our races all different including different features and it sure wasn’t the sun that did that. When you think of all this creation on earth and how it was created and all the different animals and plants, etc. you have to stop and wonder.

    Honest to God Furtz I used to be a little bit like you and I do not tell you any lies – when I have something to say I say it. Jamie has plenty that he has kept back and not insults or anything like that just that I rave on and on as you know me so he tries to keep my manuscripts behind. LOL LOL.

  20. @ Jules. The diversity of life on our planet is truly amazing when you consider that the universe and everything in it was created in just six twenty-four hour days less than six thousand years ago. It really does boggle the mind!

  21. Yes exactly Furtz and you wonder how all that came to be in just that short length of time and that would take something awful powerful as a being to do all that.
