In Loving Memory of

Bird–Fronnie Lois Bird, July 20, 1938 – September 22, 2016

Beloved wife of Keith for 51 years, Loving mother of Christopher (Sandralee), and Lisa (Ted Hornby).  Cherished grandmother of 8 and great-grandmother of 2.  Special aunt to many nieces and nephews.  Beloved sister of Marlene and Arlene.  Predeceased by siblings Betty, Ronald and Billy. Daughter of the late Wallace and Cindy Burnett of Little Current.  Fronnie is greatly missed by family and friends.

Fronnie (nee Burnett) attended both elementary and high school in Little Current and was an avid bowler, earning the Ladies High Single trophy in her final year.  She worked as a telephone operator for Bell Canada until she and Keith Bird were married in the Little Current United Church and moved to Sudbury, then to Toronto for the rest of their lives.  When their family was started, Fronnie remained at home as a devoted mother to Christopher and Lisa who regularly brought friends home after school.  Fronnie’s home also became a popular place for many to visit for tea and a confidential conversation.  Fronnie, Keith and the children often visited the Manitoulin during summer months to enjoy friends and the company of many nieces and nephews at family gatherings.  She is sadly missed and dearly loved by all who knew her.

One year has passed since that sad day,

When one we loved was called away.

God took her home. It was His will,

But in our hearts she liveth still.

Rule 1) When sin is the cause of a problem, this problem can only be solved by recognizing the sin, confessing it as sin, repentance (stopping that sin) and dedicating or rededicating to obey God (do God’s will). Not all problems are caused by sin, for example the persecutions Job suffered were because he was righteous, see JOB 1. Rule 2) Believing false doctrines (heresies, Satan’s lies) is a sin (see GAL 5:19-21) and this sin causes way more problems then people realize (recognize or understand). Rule 3) The problems caused by sins are many including separation from God, IS.59:1+2, the curse, GEN.3, the curses, DEUT. 28:15-65, Bondage to Satan, PROV. 5:22, JOHN 8:31-44, spiritual blindness, mental confusion, DEUT. 28:28, misunderstanding God’s word and strained relationships with those who advocate the truth. Rule 4) whether you like it or not there will be conflict between sinners and the righteous, PROV. 29:27. This is an aspect of the universal conflict between sin and righteousness or between God and Satan or between right and wrong until Jesus returns. Rule 5) If you want blessings, including health (mental, emotional, physical and spiritual.) Peace, happiness, prosperity etc. You must recognize the sins in your life and deal with them. Rule 6) the only standard or right and wrong (sin or evil) is the bible. Rule 7) Sin is a universal problem and the only way to deal with it is by accepting the bible as God’s word and the truth and deciding to obey God’s instructions and commandments. Rule 8) God’s solution to men’s sin problem is Jesus Christ’s atoning death at the cross. Rule 9) Jesus Christ is the only way through which man may be saved from sin, MAT. 1:21, ACTS 4:12, JOHN 14:6. The only way to receive salvation from sin is by a) recognizing that you are a sinner or sinning. b) confessing that sin c) repenting of that sin d) accepting Jesus Christ as your savior from sin e) identifying yourself with Jesus Christ in His death, burial and resurrection as payment for your sin by baptism (complete immersion in water) in the name of Jesus, ROM 6:1-6, ACTS 2:38. Please note neither the father nor the spirit died. So you cannot identify yourself with the Father or the Holy Spirit in their deaths. So baptism in the name of a trinity is a false doctrine and does not work. The doctrine of the trinity was developed about 300 years after the church was created. The early Christians did not have this doctrine and you don’t need it either. The word Christ means the anointed one; the anointing is the Holy Spirit. So the only real Christians are those who have received the Holy Spirit. As the only way to receive the Holy Spirit is through first faith (accepting the bible as the word of God and the truth and Jesus Christ as Lord and savior) confession, repentance, dedicating yourself to obey God and correct baptism, and over 90% of Christians have not taken these steps, there are a lot of “Christians” who are not real Christians. So over 90% of Christianity is Pseudo Christianity or counterfeit Christianity. This counterfeit Christianity in general has a very religious spirit but it is not the real thing. If you want to enter the Kingdom of God, go for the real thing and get baptized right.
