I presume this is amid at me so I will respond, first I have better things to do than spend all day on SermonAudio, so I only visit once in a while. Second most of the people of London just like in oz don't even consider a persons faith a reason to vote for or against them. Not living in London and not having a vote there I can only vote for my local candidates, as most of them are just as ungodly as any Muslim I personal find it hard to vote for any. Whether voting is a duty or just a right is another argument its self? The people of London under the Almighty and Sovereign God made their decision and will have to live with it. God raised up this man, may be as a judgement upon London and our nation? But I will not rail against Gods Sovereign will, I might not like it and I might not understand it but I accept that promotion does not come by man, not even democratic voting but by God Psl 75:6-7. But I will pray to the one who is Lord over all for grace to love and serve my God. Even when the Antichrist is revealed that I may remain faithful to my Lord and Saviour.
This man was elected because of his politics and not his false religion. Just like when JFK was elected in the USA back in the sixties. London will not become Islamic because of his election. Some peoples paranoia on these pages over Islam growth shows a complete lack of faith in Jesus Christ. Also as it ever occurred to you that this is all under the sovereign will of the Almighty and that with many an Islamic country being closed to the gospel due to western intervention that God is bringing the mission field to us? or do you think salvation is not for them?

If this is true then somebody should use freedom of information to get the truth out in the public domain.

You are what we call in the UK an idiot. I do hope you don't call your self a Christian. Then you would be guilty of telling two lies.

His "wisdom" and threats and inaction has left the US and the Middle East in a horrendous mess. The Europe will suffer because of his cut and run policy in the Middle East ( if you break it, you fix it), and his inability to know what to do with Putin or how you support Eastern Europe should give pause on how a nation should not lead. A president does need to come into any country to threaten them economically. Send him back to US, it's where he flourished best in destroying our nation. Our gdp under his leadership in 8 years never cracked 3%, we've been in a recession after Bush and have remained in a 1978 economy ever since.
Don't suppose you would take David Cameron as well would you?
Then Obama turned up and spoilt it all by telling us in the UK we better vote to stay in the EU or else. Does he not know if we do the movement to create a united states of Europe will increase which would be the end of all Monarchies in Europe.Also such a united Europe would be, as much is today anti USA.
Mike N/Y In Luke 11 Christ is responding to a disciples request about prayer :1 and its to disciples Christ says 'if ye being evil, know how to give good gifts' and not the wicked. Our Lord is showing His own people their totally depraved natures.
All that men do even by faith and love for God is stained with sin Isaiah 64:6 'all our righteousness are as filthy rags' before our Holy God.
Proverbs 12:10 teaches us that even the wicked's tender mercies are cruel.
Gen 6:5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that EVERY imagination of the thoughts of his heart was ONLY evil CONTINUALLY. (emphasis mine) Did the men lost at the flood feed their children 'YES' was it viewed by God as good or virtuous 'NO'.
Mike wrote: I'm not so sure about men of velour. It doesn't sound terribly manly. Question. If unbelievers feed their children, is that sin?
Velour was a typo. In the O/T Men of valour are men of faith who fought the Lords battles Joshua 1:14 10:7. we need such men in both church and state today. As for your second point I quote Christ Himself. Luke 11;13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children.
Even the reprobate know what is right and wrong they know there is a God to whom they must give an account for their lives and actions; but their good gifts will not save them. Again Rom 14:23 what is not of faith is sin. So yes even their good works in feeding their children (which they know is right) is before God sinful.
Mike wrote: The question yet again arises, if a non believer speaks the truth, does it become untrue? The rest is filler.
The truth is always the truth just because an unbeliever say it does not make it less true. Now given that Scripture calls all men liars and that what is not of faith is sin Rom 3:4 14:23 the motivation for speaking the truth will always be from a sinful heart and a sinful motive, therefore will always be sinful. What ever we do that is not of faith and for the glory of God is the fruit of our fallen nature even as believers; we must therefore guard our thoughts, words, actions and our voting. As I see it both the UK and USA from a political prospective, I can only think given our politicians we are under Gods judgement and we get the politicians we deserve. Surly we need to cry out for mercy and plead for our God to raise up men of velour to fill the breach.
Jim Lincoln wrote: If people practice these sins -- you boot them out! A Church that is a Christian church will do that, anyway.
I hope you would first call on them to repent and believe in Christ first. Also we should work with those miss guided souls who despite their sin are seeking Christ. Church discipline should always follow Christ's prescribed method in Matt 18:15-20. We do not just jump to excommunication without first seeking in love to bring them to the truth.
Many a named person will have children who in turn will have a named person, thus making every body a spy and a judge on each other. The communist states in eastern Europe would have loved this. So much for our freedoms in the west, this nonsense is coming to a home near you.
Not all Jews outside of the state of Israel believe that the nation we call Israel should exist, they are still waiting for their Messiah to appear and take them back.
The current nation we call Israel is not the Israel of God Rom 9:6 Gal 6:16. For those who think otherwise I ask you how much land promised to Abraham do you want the false Israel of today have? how many people would you accept have their homes taken from them and what would you do if somebody did it to you? Read how much land was given in the promise to Abraham in Gen 15:18. Them read Heb 11:8-10 12:22 and see how Abraham who never received any of the land promised only viewed it as a Type or picture of the Kingdom to come which is the reality.
In the following verses God speaks, Exd 20:11 for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, Exd 31:17 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, This is good enough for me, if God told a lie then He broke is own commandment Exd 20:16. A God that lied would not be God that we could ever trust. So this issue will always remain an important issue between the true and false Churches.
So Mr Obama is coming to tell us to stay in what his own nation would never tolerate is he. I will vote to come out just for that very reason, if the establishment want it I don't. But what is Gods mind concerning this?
The EU is a Roman Catholic enterprise so there is another reason to vote out. But what is Gods will concerning these things?
There are never easy answers, but voting purely on emotion is not the answer. We are about to make a momentous decision, just like our friends in the USA in November Our decisions may have unknown consequences so must prayer is required and seeking of Gods will and not mere emotionalism is called for. But what is sure is both results are in the hand of God and not just fallen men.
Sadly we have TBN in the UK available on free view and many a Christian view it thinking they are getting some good for their souls. When in reality its no better than the dross served up by secular TV. The one thing that always strikes me about the debate of what is worship is how very few seam to think that the Most High as nothing to say about it, they always assume (wrongly) that what man likes and finds uplifting or enjoyable that counts while Scripture gives us a totally different view. The Almighty not only rejects what men think is OK and actually killed people for bring in what He had never required of them. Lev 10:1-3 Matt 15:7-9 Acts 5:1-5 Col 2:18-23.
Heb 11:24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter; :25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasure of sin for a season; :26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. :27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible. Know body doubts that being born into such a position as the Queen that it is easy to maintain a faithful Christian position. Sadly the Monarchy as historically like politicians in the USA have used the faith for political and selfish ends. That is why we are called to come out from among them and remain faithful to Christ like Moses had to.
She should have then held to her convictions even if it had caused a constitutional crises pragmatism is not a Christian virtue. Also so called civil partnerships are not Biblical either. Only the LORD knows if she is truly saved; but because of her position and the affection she has in our nation she could have truly had a profound effect upon our land for the good and for the glory of God she proclaims to believe in.
Moe Howard wrote: In England, I think the Prime Minister gets to choose the head of the Church of England.
Not quite true, how it works is that the church picks two from which the PM recommends to the Queen (alleged head of the church) which one to chose to be Bishops etc.. All of which has no scriptural support. As for the Queens alleged Christian faith have given Royal assent to many godless laws she as proved to be unfaithful to God and her coronation vows to uphold our Protestant constitution. She will be accountable for her actions, just as each one of us will be also, so let us seek the Lord while we still have the opportunity.
