Margaret Thatcher's letter to nine-year-old boy about Jesus

When Margaret Thatcher wrote to a young boy 32 years ago admitting that she would “never be perfect” she could not have imagined her words would live on after her death.

But the handwritten letter to nine-year-old, David Liddelow, in which the former Prime Minister spoke of her Christian faith, has taken centre stage at her funeral in Paul’s Cathedral.

The note, written in April 1980, less than a year into her premiership, was read from the pulpit by the Bishop of London, the Rt Rev Richard Chartres, during his sermon at the service.

He hailed it as an example of her ability, even while in power, to “reach out” to the young and those not always deemed “important”. ...

old paths, that quote is from a Spurgeon commentary, and it is about the Anglican Church--
"The faith of Anglicans is founded in the scriptures, the traditions of the apostolic church, the apostolic succession – "historic episcopate" and the early Church Fathers...." Anglicanism. It is a lot like the Romish church. I would say it is enough alike that it shouldn't even be considered Christian. But, yes, do read, The Down Grade.

I suppose many across the pond think its unpatriotic or dangerous (ah, criticize the Romish church in this city, and life will be made unpleasant for you! Is the One True Church Roman Catholic? (PDF) ) I can see why this town had a chapter of the "silver shirts," Silver Legion of America, my father told me that anyway.

So, I can sympathy with fellows in Ulster and other places who have to be aware of political/religious correctness.

At least she covered the religious waterfront as she trod the Romans Road. But only Jesus could sort out the noxious syncretism in our day. He could probably go either way with her.

Though Pastor John MacArthur remains a purist as he subscribes to the ancient eight points of Dispensationalism. Because MacArthur teaches so unilaterally and aggressively in these areas, Jesus will be almost obligated to count John saved after his last breath.

Bishop of London, no doubt Maggie was a better Christian than he is. Too bad Maggie could have at least a Methodist minister do her funeral. I suppose it would have been just as liberal, but at least it wouldn't be by a fellow who would enjoy dancing on her grave.

Hmm, in the light of what Maggie said, and The Thing from the Anglican Church said, I guess I'll give this sermon as a reference as I did on another thread, The Inadequacy of Moralism.

'...the State Church, which the great reformers had planted, and which some of them had watered with their blood, presented the spectacle which went far to justify the sarcasm of an eminent writer, that she possessed "A Popish Liturgy, a Calvinistic Creed, and an Arminian Clergy."'

And why is that? Because Thatcher started whipping all Christian conscience out of her own party's MP's. A tree is known by its fruit.

Derford what you say is true but what I find amazing is so many have blinkers on & think that Westminster is a nursery for Nation Leaders starting with Milliband.truly distressing

"I was surprised by all of them but the fact that Mrs Thatcher wrote a two page hand-written letter is amazing, it shows that she had a warm heart.”"

Good old Mr's T. Took time out to respond to a child. Even here her qualities of leadership shined through.
