Why am I not surprised? It seems there is a choice between compromise or confrontation. Either accept the subtle repositioning and distancing of your teaching, or run the gamut of the law.
Perhaps I sound dispassionate? Believe me, I am not. This is my country they are wrecking. This is my country that is competing with Canada to ruin itself and put itself under judgement. This is my country wilfully jettisoning its heritage and past and embracing a new dark age.
God help us. Are we ready to stand firm against persecution? It comes, subtly and insidiously, and we must be ready.
A prophet I know from a nearby congregation says that Jesus tells her we are going to be facing increaasing persecution in the near future; and it looks like she’s right.
I share your outrage.
Gay agenda uber alles.
Yes, this is where it starts Dan; there is no such thing as a value-neutral culture. Course, this is nothing like some folks face in the Muslim majority world, but we are certainly begining the path of persecution, and sometimes it can be more rapid than we’d give credit for.
Hi Wannabe, and welcome. I thought you were Newbie now? 🙂
Our country is spinning out of control. Educationally on the Isle of Wight it is a mess (not like when you were here). Governmental politics, laws and environmental issues are a joke, and we lack guidance both morally and spiritually from our church leaders. Are people so afraid to stand up for what they believe? I pray that God will inspire the faithful to be more outspoken about what is happening in the UK. And all the legislation: Health & Safety, Equal Opportunities, Human Rights etc. just bind or restrict people, even though often they know it lacks common sense.
We need to get back to our Christian Roots in this country. I’m standing up for Celtic (or early British) Christianity.
Thanks for your wake-up call.
God’s blessings on you and all your readers.
Indeed, now I was sure that you would see it the same way! Yeats, while certainly not coming from a Christian perspective, may have said it very well:
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
