Persecution is Coming to the West
BLANKENBURG -- Persecution is coming to the West. Under the guise of tolerance, Bible believing Christians of all confessions are subjected to suppressive intolerance, warns a declaration issued at the Ecumenical Confessional Convention in Blankenburg, East Germany.

The event, with 130 Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox representatives, was convened by the evangelical missiologist Prof. Peter Beyerhaus. The so-called Blankenburg Proclamation speaks of a dangerous anti-Christian influence on legislation, academic life and school education.

The declaration refers specifically to the plight of German homeschoolers. Approximately 150 families were subjected to fines or jail because they refused to send their children to state registered schools and thus broke the German law. ...

I think that passage was referring to the Apostles , not all Christians.I am myself not sure how/if this fits in today although I know God does i.e. heal people through/in many ways at times.
Paul experienced such: Acts19.v.11:12And God wrought special miracles by the hands of paul...

After the shipwreck when they landed on Malta, Paul had a viper on his hand but it did him no harm to the amazement of the witnesses Act 28.v.3-7

Well obviously it doesnt prove anything, but its something the anti-Christian groups can use.

Doug, have you investigated every case of illness, poisoning, snake bites, etc? I think there are many living and walking testimonies to disprove you. The most reliable ones are recorded in scripture.

Doug, Satan can quote scripture too. He is not very good at it however. Soloman said "only a fool judges a thing before he knows it". You would be wise to take heed.

Your kid grows up in a small Christian toen and ends up in a big university with people from many religions and cultures.
The world is shrinking and everyone is being squeezed together, be it via the internet, or immigration.

"kids have to interact with other kids" "they're going have to learn to get along with kids from different backgrounds"

Jim, how do you know? Cite an authority I must believe.

I read the article, Neil, and the second time you listed the URL; it worked well. Now I may have scanned through it too fast, but I didn't see much wrong with ideas in the article except presenting them as steps. This is something the Alki-Anons do. As generalized advice it seemed fairly good. Yes, kids have to interact with other kids, but those kids should be Christian. However, as they get older, they're going have to learn to get along with kids from different backgrounds. They usually don't have problems even if public school, if the parents have been doing their job at home.

Doug, please read

Romans 1:18-22

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.

Romans 6:23 The wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

I am sure you will not find any healers in this forum.

Mark 16:18: They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

This proves the bible is not from god.
If true, then we wouldn't need dictors and hospitals. Where are the healers? Oh yes, they charge money for their 'healing'. Hah!
How many xtians do you know who have drunk cyanide and survived?
The bible is a lie.

Maththew 5:10-12

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my name sake.

Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

Romans 12:14

Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

Romans 12:19

Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unot wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

Romans 12:20-21

Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.

Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

It is very true that some "protestants" should be stripped of that name. Such ones blur the distinction between truth and error.

Speaking of a 'dangerous anti-Christian influence', the Roman Catholic Religionists were represented in this convention. And there were 'Protestants' there, too? Do they know what and who they are supposed to be protesting against? How can they join hands with antichristians who are loyal to an antichrist??

ANSWER: They love their mother. (Rev 17:5)

"The so-called Blankenburg Proclamation speaks of a dangerous anti-Christian influence on legislation, academic life and school education."

So does the Bible

2Tim 4:3 "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."

Signs of the times.

Jim, don't paste in the stuff in parentheses after the URL, & make sure you include the full file suffix:

The article said nothing about home churches. Bear in mind, not all home schoolers recuse from youth groups etc. Those that wisely do so are who the writer has a problem with.

I couldn't open the URL you gave Neil!

Home schooling is alive and well at Many times IHCC has hosted regional home schooler organizations.

Still, for the Lincoln area, contact Robin Gould, he can help you out with home schooling.

I just wonder Neil if these home schoolers that Grace Church isn't complaining about are also home church types?

"There is nothing in religion of an indifferent nature; "For whosoever [saith Christ] shall break one of the least of these commandments, and shall teach men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven." It must, then, be the most daring wickedness, and an affronting of the Majesty of Heaven in the highest manner, for an earthly monarch to pretend to enact a toleration of religions, and thereby give a liberty where the divine law has laid a restraint; it implies an exalting of himself, not only to an equality with, but to a state of superiority above, the God of glory. Whatever principles are of divine authority require no toleration from man; it is wickedness to pretend to do it, seeing whatever comes under the necessity of a toleration, properly so-called, falls, at the same time, under the notion of a crime. And no less wicked is it for a magistrate to protect, by a promiscuous toleration, all heretics, heresies and errors; yet, it is a manifest breach to trust, and plain perverting the end of his office, seeing he is appointed to be custos et vindex utriusque tabulae, intrusted with the concerns of God's glory, as well as the interests of men. Experience has, in every age, taught, that a toleration of all religions is the cut-throat and ruin of all true religion."1876
