It was the British parliament that diluted its own sovereignty with the unlawful and unconstitutional passing of the European Communities Act 1972 under the Conservative government (of which Margaret Thatcher was a very approving cabinet minister).
Both left and right were warned by men such as Enoch Powell and Tony Benn. The issue was very straightforward.

Too funny. Margaret Thatcher ruined Margaret Thatcher's reputation. Her own party kicked her out for her lies and deceit 4 long years before Blair became Labour Party leader.
Of course Blair admired her, he was a Thatcherite and in the wrong party.

Great Sermon! This is a wonderful message!
Enoch is one of the least talked about bible personalities in the bible. Yet, his life has such an impact on understanding spirituality.
Thanks Lisa, I aree with you totally about the spiritual dimension of the battle. We tend to focus mostly on the physical and the visible realm quite often. In fact I have alluded to it in point 2f in my article.

It is too easy to get comfortable when we should be moving forward. I pray that God would really move upon all of you in the Church body of India, and in all of the areas that you discussed. May His Kingdom come and be evident in every facet among you all. In Christ's love, Andrew
Must Hear! Oh, the beauty of the Gospel when presented in its simplicity and in the power of the Holy Spirt by a man of God whose only desire is to proclaim the truth. Thank you Pastor Mahan!
Everyone in ministry/preaching/teaching should hear this, as well as those who have been in church all their lives and are holding to religion and traditions for assurance of salvation.

He wrote a very good book exposing homosexuality but publishers were afraid to touch it...it is full of validated facts. Put that book in the hands of every UK citizen then the people would have facts to wake up.
Wayne, what is the name of the book and can it be found on the web?
there are many big churches throughout history. the only difference about mega churches of today is that most mega "churches" of today do not preach biblically anymore which causes a person to repentance. Spurgeon preached to thousands of people but he examines a person first before actual membership. Just compare the messages of today to the old preachers. when peter preached at pentecost, the Holy Spirit convicted the people, they repented, believing in the biblical message and a biblical Jesus and 3 thousand only out of the 3 million+ Jews present. most of the mega churches now are of the feel good, judge not sort. Lord Jesus warned us about apostasy not revival in the last days. what's happening right now is that people are just inoculated by an almost gospel and make them resistant to the the true gospel
that's why i believe this tongues movement is not of God. Just look at the disagreements here. if it is of the Spirit it will bring about unity. tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe but to them that believe not. funny how these so called tongues people disobey God's word by not keeping quiet in church without an interpreter. forbid not to speak in tongues when there is a german or russian in the midst of an english congregation. however, nobody is using this gift for OTHERS as the gifts primary purpose. For the MINISTRY! not to feel good. Listen! it couldn't be clearer: if you are not using your gift for others, no need to exercise it. again: echoing another poster's comment: CONTEXT CONTEXT CONTEXT
