Here in Britain, we do not have the luxury of armed church congregants, nor would we wish to in our culture that is so different from that of the US.
I personally believe that the US should be able to keep the 2nd Amendment if they wish, with proper safeguards, but in Britain, we do not and no doubt never will have that option.
Some farmers, a few huntsmen and country estate owners who have licenced game bird shooting are allowed to keep rifles and long manual shotguns with a police licence under extremely strict conditions, but revolvers, pistols and small guns were banned a couple of decades ago and legal weapons had to be handed in, after the Hungerford and Dunblane Primary School massacres, both carried out by deranged characters.
Assault, automatic and machine guns have never been allowed for civilians, only for military and police after special training.
No, here in Britain, we have to rely on prayer first and foremost, skilful ushers and door stewards, and careful liaison with local police. It is also helpful if there are police in the congregation.
I really hope that the frankness of this loathsome and modern clinical version of a priest of Molech, Chemosh, Baal or Astarte caused this lady BBC reporter to really reflect on her pro-abortion views.
Like the commentator in Lifesite News, I am astonished that the BBC editor was exceedingly clumsy, and did not dispatch this quite frank footage on the cutting room floor. Praise the Lord that it made it to the film that was shown to the tv licence fee paying public. The reporter might not have believed the anti-abortion Governor, who described the gruesome horror of these Nazi style late term abortions, but here she had from the abortionist himself, āfrom the horseās mouthā, so to speak, the actual real truth, it is killing babies.
May that have convicted and convinced many of the viewers of this programme, to stand against the evils of abortion, even if it means changing long held liberal views on the matter.
South China Morning Post wrote: .... Some pro-Beijing scholars admit it is not that Beijing does not know the popular will of the pro-democracy movement, but rather that it has neither the will nor the intention to act upon their demands.
āTake the calls for universal suffrage as an example,ā said Lau, the former Hong Kong government adviser. āIn Beijingās eyes, there are still anti-communist and anti-China forces in Hong Kong, who are hoping to seize power to rule Hong Kong via general election. How can it respond to such calls?ā...

I also thought that the article from the WSJ was good, especially since I had a chance to read it all.

This is very worrying, not because of this issue, but wouldnāt true Christians be very ashamed to admit that they are having pre-marital sex if they were, and also cohabiting is so blatant. We tend to hide our sins and confess them secretly, I think that soft gospel preaching is the main culprit here, which is the gospel of Satan.
What kind of church are these Christians from? I canāt imagine a real and biblical church allowing immorality among their youth and unmarried. Someone once said, if someone looks like the world, talks like the world and acts like the world then he is of the world. Such people should not be mistaken for a true Christian.
Dear Mr. Harris, I am not sure what has lead you to this place in your life but I would say after you have had your flirtation with sin remember that Jesus forgives all who come to him. If that was the case at the beginning of your faith then it holds true now. Confess your sin and he is faithful and just to forgive your sin and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. God is long suffering to you and will not let go, if you are one of his children, yet he may chasten you for a time. Repent of your sin for Jesus stands ready to forgive you.
I am very concerned to hear of someone in a position of Christian influence such as the Hillsong lyricist claiming that he has or is losing his faith in our Savior. I think we should pray for him that he will seriously consider what that means and repent of his backsliding condition. To lose ones salvation is of course an impossibility and perhaps that teaching has been neglected in his walk of faith. I pray that the Lord will open his heart and he will see the error of his ways and turn yet again to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ who is our only hope of eternal life.
We are not confused. We are evil sinners. We are being judged. The truth is that God is so merciful until we see him as one ignoring our conduct. We've become proud and numb as if God's "love" protects us from hurt, harm and danger.
It's true that "It is because of the Lord's mercies we are not consumed." But the wicked think God's owes this to them because he's a God of love, love, love. The cross reveals the love and the mercies of God. It also reveals his wrath and judgment. This is what needs to be broadcast from our pulpit -our disgusting, vile behavior.
