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 â€śTraditional Planâ€ť, 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 â€śbigotsâ€ť and â€śhomophobesâ€ť, 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 â€śCatholic Charismatic Movementâ€ť. 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 donâ€™t realise is their child from conception, not â€śassigned at birthâ€ť, 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 doesnâ€™t 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 womenâ€™s 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.
Ethiopia, a broadly Oriental Orthodox â€śChristianâ€ť nation (Oriental Orthodoxy is slightly different from Eastern Orthodoxy, though their liturgy has similarities), but with a large Muslim minority, and having suffered a now defeated Marxist regime, became a landlocked nation when its maritime province of Eritrea, now itself a virtually Marxist dictatorship, successfully broke away, and became an independent nation.
From then on, Ethiopia depended for its maritime connection on the city port state of Djibouti, a former French colony.
If the Chinese seize control of this port, this will certainly affect nations like Ethiopia, and could inflame further the lawless neighbouring state of Somalia, which has a nominal Western approved government, but is actually ruled mostly by the al Shebaab Muslim fundamentalist terrorist group.
No nation is a truly Christian nation. However, both Britain and the USA, were broadly founded on Judeo-Christian principles. The difference is that Britain, went down the state church route, which worked very badly, because the state church became corrupt, and even when it was fairly evangelical, it persecuted those evangelicals that dissented from some of its provisions, such as episcopacy, the liturgical Prayer Book, etc. Scotlandâ€™s Reformation went further than Englandâ€™s, and that led to even more strong persecution of true believers.
The USA, founded largely by descendants of dissenters and Nonconformists, who had fled these, like the Pilgrim Fathers, though initially even some of them had gone down the state church route in their areas, determined that there would not be a state church. However, I believe the founding fathers of the USA, who were not all evangelicals, did not foresee the atheist revolution that would take place 200 years later.
Suffice to say, in USA, secular atheistic humanism, is now the illegal state religion, with Islam having protected status, and in Britain, though there is a state church in England only, secular atheistic humanism also acts as an unofficial state religion, with Islam having protected status.
I understand that Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia was only unmasked, though health officials knew what was going on, through a police raid of his clinic, for unrelated financial matters. It was only then that the full horror of his activities came to light. As it were, the police and prosecutors were forced to act, and he is now serving life in prison without parole.
However, under these new laws, in New York, Vermont, Rhode Island, Arizona and other states, he could not even be inspected, would not have to have emergency admitting privileges in a local a and e hospital, and would not have to resuscitate aborted babies born alive. In fact, he would not even necessarily have to be a qualified doctor. He could be a nurse practitioner, a midwife, or for non-surgical chemical abortions, a pharmacist. In these wicked states, it is unlikely even that he would have been charged with the unrelated financial activities, as abortion is now virtually above the law. This sounds suspiciously like the â€śback street abortionistsâ€ť the liberals said they were trying to prevent, when the Roe v Wade was pushed the Supreme Coyrt. What wickedness!!
Despite the aggressive secularism in France, (the French state schools, which are run directly by the National Government of France, and not by local school boards or LEAs as we have in USA or Britain, are radically secular, and no RE or religious symbols are allowed), occultism, psychics, and witchcraft are widespread as is the New Age.
Meanwhile, whole towns and no doubt, even some small cities, not forgetting the many villages and rural areas in France, often have no viable evangelical church, and those that exist often have to struggle in hired halls, and even that can be very tenuous.
In large cities in France, there are some large evangelical churches, many of which are organised for expatriate communities, principally African and Asian, but unfortunately many are not truly Bible based but are geared to aberrations such as prosperity gospel, etc. France definitely needs much prayer.
In the 18th century, we in Britain had a fairly dead church. Both the state approved Church of England, but even the Nonconformist and â€śDissentingâ€ť chapels were full of formal dead religion. Rationalism was abroad, Unitarianism was increasing, and the parson or vicar was usually someone on the social scene, hunting and shooting with the local squire.
The teaching of the Puritans of the previous century, who had been expelled en masse from the Church of England in 1662 was being forgotten. It was in this environment, that God blessed us with the outpouring of the Methodist revival.
France, however, had brutally expelled all their evangelical citizens, the Protestant Reformed Huguenots under the absolute monarch Louis XIV at one stroke. There was no Methodist revival in France. Things got more and more decadent until the atheistic Revolution broke out at the end of the 18th century and destroyed the monarchy. France has never been the same since, and even today, the tiny band of French evangelicals struggle. Now only is there secularism, but Islam, strident and aggressive. France is also with Germany at the heart of the godless EU and itâ€™s eurozone.
I didnâ€™t bother to read the accompanying article. However, 2 things occur to me here.
First, the lawlessness of all types of rap music. It seems to have a very destructive message and anarchistic beat. I am very shocked when certain modern CCM churches embrace this music in a â€śChristianisedâ€ť form, to try to reach kids in the ghettos. The whole rap music by its very nature is loud, strident and irreverent.
The whole aspect of tattoos, body piercing and other types of marking and destruction of the body is totally pagan and rightly condemned on the OT. I believe that carries on in the NT, simply because as Christians, our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit, and for any Christian, as some modern Christians, seem to have done, to deface and mark his or her own body, contrary to this, is disobedient and anarchistic and insulting, I believe to our Precious Creator and Lord.
Let us be very clear to keep away from these things. Our churches and our bodies should be very clearly different from the world. Do not let us get ready as if we were taking the mark of the Antichrist. We all know where that leads!!!
when the latter has desecrated the rebuilt Jewish Temple and claimed that he is â€śGodâ€ť, and the only one to be worshipped.
As shown in Revelation, and elsewhere in the The False Prophet sets up some kind of moving talking statue or image of the Antichrist and performs many counterfeit miracles in his name. He also supervises the one world cashless economic system based on a compulsory chip or mark that everyone has to wear, most likely permanently in their body, to show their allegiance to the Antichrist and which permits them to buy, sell or use any service, and without which they will effectively be starved and hunted down as criminals. However anyone who takes the mark, is automatically condemned by the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to a lost eternity.
I believe that the Pope, and any other false teacher, is an antichrist small â€śaâ€ť, but the final Antichrist is likely to be a humanistic secular leader of the European Union, or whatever it becomes in the next few years. I am sure it will be a â€śUnited States of Europeâ€ť, even if Britain succeeds in her very messy Brexit attempt, no other member is going to want to do another â€śExitâ€ť attempt, itâ€™s just too complicated. The messy structure of the EU at the moment is bound to be altered at some stage, and replaced by a super powerful executive presidency.
However, the Papacy lends itself very clearly to being the False Prophet or head of all the worldâ€™s false religions. I donâ€™t personally think this will be Pope Francis, as he is quite an elderly man, and not a professed miracle worker. However, he is laying the groundwork, and one of his immediate successors, no doubt a younger man, who will fool countless evangelicals, by coming out of the so called â€śevangelical Catholic charismaticâ€ť wonder working movement will no doubt fill this post, and be the second in charge to the Antichrist and his no 1 promoter.
Half way through the Great Tribulation, he will jettison all the false religions of the world, ban them and set up the new sole permitted religion of worship of the Antichrist
I would never waste time watching it now, but the ghastly annual Eurovision Song Contest held each year in May, (an international mainly but not exclusively European pop song contest, with international juries, and held usually in the previous yearâ€™s winnerâ€™s country), one year had a most awful heavy metal act (from Finland, I believe), as the winner for that year.
It is tragic that the Scandinavian countries that embraced the Lutheran Reformation so enthusiastically have abandoned it and gone back to even the pre-Catholic paganism.
The very reason that God gave the Israelites who were about to enter their promised land, and take it away with utter destruction from the original Canaanite inhabitants, was precisely because of the Canaanitesâ€™ shedding of innocent blood, that is of infant sacrifice as well as ritual prostitution at the worship of their heathen gods and goddesses.
The worship these days may much much more subtle, and clinical in its nature, but it continues on with the same zeal and faith as had the Canaanites, combined with the same arrogance and wickedness, and God will require justice for the innocents that cry out from the abortion clinic, the hospital, the â€śmorning afterâ€ť pharmacy, the school nurseâ€™s room, the worldly wise counsellorâ€™s room, and the various local, state and federal courts and Congress rooms, where such vile practices are carried out or legislated for.
