The reason for this strange turn around is simply that the school is almost 99% Muslim, and the Muslims just will not put up with it!!!
The âgayâ deputy head who piloted all this nonsense, will I am sure be given a nice diplomatic sideways promotion to a better paid and more prestigious headship at a non-Muslim primary school, where he can push his LGBT-friendly sex education programme without any parental or community interference.
Needless to say, outside Islamic and Muslim areas, our âLiberalâ Conservative Government, and OFSTED, the schools inspection authority in England and Wales, (and folks, that is not just for state or public schools, but private schools as well), with its aggressive secular humanist chief inspector, Amanda Spielman, is absolutely and resolutely committed to forcefully implementing LGBT and Transgender friendly sex education at all levels of education without parental consent.
I do believe that there is a Foundations Bible College and Collegiate Church, in Dunn, North Carolina, with Dr HT Spence, which is totally separate from any denominational foundation, thoroughly evangelical and fundamentalist, and also has a 24 hour radio station with very conservative Christian Music, and regular conferences. It does not generally broadcast on Sermon Audio, although some special sermons Dr H T Spence did on music which I have heard, on Sermon Audio, which he gave at Toronto Free Presbyterian Church some years ago, were excellent.
Yes, Christopher, you are right about Tai Chi, and what about Yoga? It is at the heart of Hinduism, and the word âYogaâ means yoke, as in yoking with Brahman, the Hindu concept of the Supreme Being, the summation of all their millions of gods.
Whether it is the full blooded Hindu Yoga form, or a watered down âsecularisedâ version, or worse still, a pseudo-âChristianisedâ form of it, it is still pagan!!
A large Methodist Church near me, has a large notice board, announcing âChurch Activitiesâ, but apart from a lone church service on Sundays at 11.00, and a huge sign on the side of the church which says in large letters, âWORSHIP FOR THE PEOPLEâ, whatever that means, the only other activities, on nearly every night of the week are Zumba, with some Kick Boxing, and Aerobics, and even, I think, Tai Chi!!! No prayer meeting, no Bible Study, and not even any Christian Young Peopleâs or Childrenâs activities, only a daytime secular French language pre-school that rents the church basement. John and Charles Wesley would definitely have something to say about it!!
The only other possible application of a female deaconess or similar female pastoral worker could be as a kind of chaplain to women in a womenâs prison, school or institute, where it may not always be appropriate for a male to carry out these kind of activities.
Before the disastrous and unbiblical decision to ordain women as full deacons and priests, and now later on as bishops, the Church of England did have a separate order of deaconesses, abolished by this move, which were separate from the male deacons. The Lutherans still, I believe, have something similar.
The only way I could go along with female deaconesses, is if they were indeed totally separate from male deacons, and their role was solely and only for purposes of female counselling and visitation, as sometimes it is not always wise or appropriate for a male pastor or elder to visit or counsel a woman.
Having said that, often a pastorâs or elderâs wife often unofficially acts as a kind of deaconess, and may well carry out this activity, but in any case any such female workers must at all times be answerable to the pastor and elders of the church, and submitted to them. There is no biblical case for a woman to be a full male type deacon, and definitely not an elder or pastor.
The PCA need to be very careful that this is not the thin end of the wedge, leading to wrong ordination of women as full deacons, elders or pastors!!
This doesnât sound at all like the Liberty University I heard of from the 1960âs and 1970âs, where there were strict rules in this kind of thing. I hope that Bob Jones hasnât gone that way!!
I think the trouble is that the churches these students have come from have gone very soft, and maybe even very nominal, and as stated by Wayfarer Pilgrim, a quick and not well regulated âadultâ child baptism at 14, without proper examination will not do.
Also the lure of government money, grants, public scholarships and so on, together with official tax free status, leads inevitably to compromise.
I did not know about this lady until I read a newspaper or magazine article about women in science and engineering. This also suggested she had a lesbian relationship.
It seems typical of the low standard of the popular media today, that anything and everything has to have a sexual element to it, previously only heterosexual, but now increasingly homosexual/ lesbian / transgender.
Some people seem to have forgotten that there are some men and some women who actually prefer to be single and function that way.
Mary Anning lived at a time when women could not attend university, and she probably could have published her findings under a male name if she had found a publisher that would do it. It was only later in the 19th century, that women could go to Oxford and Cambridge Universities, but only to segregated womenâs colleges, and they would not get a degree, but a kind of certificate at the end of their course. The new University of London was more forward in this, and finally Oxford and Cambridge very reluctantly allowed women to take degrees, and the major scientific professions such as medicine followed some fine after, admitting women to their numbers.
That is why it is iniquitous that state after state, country after country, is banning and criminalising counsellors and other professionals who help, often very confused, hurting and abused people to come to a real knowledge of their problem, to see reality and to get the help they really need, and particularly for children, instead forcing them and pushing them into a course of action that is totally disastrous, dangerous for health and in many cases irreversible.
Even if this chap had no surgery, just taking the chemical hormones can do irreparable damage to the body, and cause cancer, heart disease, strokes and other diseases later in life, as well of course as sterility.
We can only pray that more people like this man, despite this, are able to come out of the woodwork, despite the mockery and anger they will receive, to leave this terrible lifestyle, and to come to a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, and that both pastors and friends will be able to share the scriptures lovingly with them and show them practical love, even if threatened with dismissal from jobs and legal sanctions from the powers that be!!
The second largest Pentecostal group in Brazil, the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, a health / wealth / prosperity church, has actually many churches in major urban centres here in Britain, offering many daily services in English, Spanish and Portuguese praying for every conceivable personal need, and no doubt raking in large tithes and offerings!!
A much more sedate and presumably doctrinally balanced group in Brazil is the Congregacao do Cristo, with men and scarved women sat separately in their very large churches, in separate blocks of seats, with a huge all male orchestra, and a lone female organist!!
Yes, when I saw some YouTube. videos of this break away AOG Brazilian group, I did think of the Toronto Blessing, the so-called Lakeland ââRevivalâ with Todd Bentley, and so on, although O get the impression this group are not directly influenced by it but are âdoing their own thingâ.
The spiritual situation in Brazil is indeed chaotic.
Prosperity gospel churches and heavy duty cell system churches are everywhere.
Many Brazilians who scorn this are involved in Afro-Brazilian spiritist groups, ( while often claiming to be Catholic), and others are involved in more Western style spiritism and occultism. Other heretical groups like JWs, Mormons, and of course Islam are spreading their messages with some success.
While the mainstream Pentecostal Assemblies of God is broadly gospel centred, there are some spin offs that are definitely very odd. One group, actually have services where people whirl round or lie on the floor kicking up and down, while pastors or a lady misioneria shouts out repetitive songs, with a musical accompaniment through a microphone.
We must indeed pray for this land. It is good that the new President there is making a stand on some issues, but there needs to be a good solid number of churches preaching the real Gospel.
Dear Mr Lincoln, I am sure that this chap running as DA for SAN Francisco, a left city with a huge LGBT population and real problems with drug addicts on the streets, and in the Metro, with syringes and paraphernalia lying everywhere, as I read it, so much so that major conventions have cancelled their visits to the city, is perfectly genuine, and hopefully unlike his parents opposes and eschews violence.
However, I believe that the infamous Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York us much the same, and Senator Bernie Sanders, and our own Labour leader here in Britain, Jeremy Corbyn, are the same and yet look at the absolute chaos they wish to unleash upon us, both in the United States and in Britain.
We only have to look at President Maduro and his benighted chaotic country of Venezuela, and the awful rigid dictatorship of Kim Jong Un in North Korea to see where it will all end up!!!
These LGBT activists will not give up their stranglehold lightly, and are impelled by the fact that in the UMC, as in many mainline apostate Protestant denominations, though the members of a local church have poured money and donations into their building, the freehold belongs not to the local congregation but to the denomination, and if they leave they will lose their church building and have to either rent or buy somewhere, or engage in an expensive law suit to regain it.
They will therefore stay in, cause havoc, getting the local senior clergy and bishop on their side, and continually working to undermine the âTraditional Planâ, until they get it reversed, and their denomination follows all the others in being the gay friendly church.
As to the disgusted foreign delegates, the colonialist Leftist LGBT USA leadership that will emerge, can soon have them tossed out as âbigotsâ and âhomophobesâ, and then they can get their majority.
The modern Chinese Communist government are obviously, in their mind, going to try to finish the work that their predecessor, Chairman Mao-tse Tung, started in destroying the Christian Church, and other religions as well, but along with the brute force as used by him, they are also using technology and economics as well.
They have however forgotten that the gates of hell will not prevail against the church, as we find out from the fall of the mighty 70 year old Soviet Union and its empire.
Obviously the American youth are enamoured by the starvation and utter chaos in neighbouring Venezuela, and further afield, the terrible dictatorship of Kim Jong Un in North Korea, and wish to inflict it on the United States. It looks as if Alexandria Ocala-Cortes and Senator Bernie Sanders are the models for these young people. Years of indoctrination on the godless secularist public schools and the state and even private secular universities have made their mark.
This Jesuit Pope Francis is truly indeed laying the foundation of the future one world apostate religion that will be led by the final False Prophet, most likely a successor Pope to him, who will side with the Antichrist, and promote him using this religion, but will halfway through the tribulation, complete his apostasy by totally abandoning and destroying the religion he is head of, turning tail, and declaring the Antichrist as god and the only permitted religion, and setting up a moving talking image of the Antichrist for all to worship. He will also do many counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders. It makes me wonder if the False Prophet will come out of the âCatholic Charismatic Movementâ. He will certainly ride through the ranks quickly from an ordinary Catholic priest, through the episcopacy, to be a Cardinal and then elected the last Pope.
This Boeing Max plane was immediately without notice banned from the skies in Britain, which meant that some airplanes that were en route to Britain had to turn round and return to their original airport, where the passengers had then to transfer to other types of planes to finish their journey. Germany, Austria, France and some other European countries have also now banned these planes. This will continue until all the Max planes are tested, and found to be ok.
Both London Boroughs of Ealing, in West London north of the Thames, and now Richmond, in South West London, have now passed these local ordinances, protecting the abortion clinics in their areas from any meaningful protest, or outreach to the mothers who are seeking to use their services.
The three main charitable semi-private organisations that provide most of the abortion services in Britain, Marie Stopes Clinics, Brooke Advisory Services, and British Pregnancy Advisory Services, our three equivalents of Planned Parenthood, and our state financed National Health Service, wish to make abortion completely available for virtually any reason.
Tragically, pretty well, the only ones protesting are fairly traditional Roman Catholic groups such as the ones that were protesting in Ealing and Richmond. There is a small evangelical section of SPUC, the main pro-life charity.
What these terrible parents donât realise is their child from conception, not âassigned at birthâ, either had an XY chromosome and is therefore a boy, or has a XX chromosome and is a girl. (I think I got the chromosomes right).
It doesnât matter what the toys the child plays with, what clothes he or she wears, or what hormones the child may be afflicted with or surgical procedures are performed in his or her teenage years or later. The boy from conception, will still be male, even until death, and the girl from conception, will still be female, even until death.
This cannot be altered, however much the parents, social workers, doctors, psychiatrists, nurses, LGBT workers, apostate clergy, politicians, or the person themselves wish otherwise. It is an immutable law of God.
1st to Frank. I agree with most of what you say, though I do believe there should be women police, as what happens when male police arrest women. It is better to have a female officer around to ensure decency, and the same with female prisons, the officers should be female. Having said that it is disgraceful that prisons now are often staffed by opposite sex officers, men in womenâs prisons and women in male prisons.
With regard to the Armed Services, here in Britain, women were in the Armed Services during the 2nd World War, and played an honourable role, but they were strictly segregated from the men, were in special units, all now abolished, the WRAC for the army, the WAAF for the Royal Air Force, and the WRENS for the Royal Navy, as well as the various nursing services for the three services. No woman was in any combat role and they were kept away from the front line. Women also were not conscripted into the military. Tragically that has now been completely undone, and women are in the normal services, and all roles including combat are open to them. This is iniquitous.
