"Would you know, in the next place, what is the grand defect of the Christianity of our times? Listen to me, and I will tell you. The grand defect I speak of is simply thisâthat the Christianity of many people is not real Christianity at all. I know that such an opinion sounds hard and shockingly uncharitable. I cannot help thatâI am satisfied that it is sadly true. I only want people's Christianity to be that of the Bible; but I doubt exceedingly, in many cases, whether it is so. There are multitudes of English people, I believe, who go to church or chapel every Sunday merely as a form. Their fathers or mothers went, and so they go; it is the fashion of the country to go, and so they go; it is the custom to attend a religious service and hear a sermon, and so they go. But as to real, vital, saving religion--they neither know nor care anything about it. They can give no account of the distinctive doctrines of the Gospel. Justification, and regeneration, and sanctification, are "words and names" which they cannot explain. They may have a sort of vague idea that they ought to go to the Lord's Table, and may be able to say a few vague words about Christ â but they have no intelligent notion of the way of salvation." (J C Ryle)
Is it correct to call this "ethnic cleansing?" Perhaps this is because there is no familiar term for this situation. "Religious cleansing" would be more accurate but hitherto unused. "Ethnic cleansing" for persecution of Christians is similar in terminology misuse as dubbing criticism of Islam "racism" -- except the latter has another, greater inaccuracy, that of wrongly condemning criticism.
Yes, Frank, at any given moment we are only one election away from the possibility of losing all of the precious freedoms that so many thousands have died to protect. I just pray that Christians go up before America goes down.
The article states that Planned Parenthood has not settled on a long-term successor. I think Satan would be the ideal candidate. If he is unavailable, Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama would be suitable substitutes; after all, they are children and loyal followers of the devil.
Rebellion is right, BDF, and I was probably one of the most rebellious kids who ever lived. If theyâd had these silly rules when I was a younâun, Iâd have changed my name every 15 minutes just to give the teacher a headache. Even so, I wouldâve slugged anyone who suggested I was a girl. Any guy, that is; back then you didnât hit girls and you could tell the difference.
Since then, despite statements to the contrary, many political powers in Britain, backed by the EU, have connived to get rid of Northern Ireland, and butter it up for ultimate reabsorption into the Republic of Ireland, the EU and of course the Eurozone.
The Republic of Ireland has thrown off much of its Catholic identity, due to paedophile scandals, and the abuse of girls and women in the terrible Magdalena Laundries run by nuns, and is now an aggressively secular country, having overthrown its own Constitution and adopted âgayâ marriage, and virtually unlimited abortion.
The evangelicals in Northern Ireland are shortly about to be betrayed and handed over to this, I believe.
It was in Ireland that the Catholic King James II was finally defeated in 1690, having been deposed in 1688 after having a Catholic male heir, and seeking to turn England into a Catholic country, in favour of his Protestant daughter Mary II and her Dutch husband William III.
Many devoutly Protestant settlers from England and Scotland had gone to Ireland, particularly in what is now Northern Ireland, and that area became majority Protestant. The rest was majority Catholic.
After the disastrous Potato Famine in the early 19th century, and whole scale Catholic emigration to US, there was a movement of rebellion and independence for Ireland. This culminated in the main part of Ireland receiving independence after the 1st World War.
The Protestant majority in the North refused to become a minority in a Catholic country, and stayed part of Britain.
The Catholic Republican Irish did not accept this, and through political pressure and terrorism have always stood against this, hence the terrible troubles of the 1970âs.
No John UK, it is not as simple as that. Northern Ireland is still part of the U.K., not part of the Republic of Ireland.
We must not forget that it was actually the Pope in the time of king Henry II, I believe, who granted previously independent Ireland, which was not at the time Roman Catholic, but had its own Celtic Church, to the English. That put an end to the independence of the Irish Church, as well as the state.
England lost its Celtic Church to the Roman Catholic Church some centuries earlier, in the Saxon days, in the Synod of Whitby in 664 AD, when the Northumbrian King, a Celtic Christian, King Oswy, had narried a Catholic princess from Kent, and the Synod decided for Rome. The Celtic bishops, missionaries, monks and priests either accepted Rome, or went back to Scotland or Ireland. The Celtic Church died out soon after.
Later on, in the 16th and 17th centuries, fired up by the Protestant Reformation and Puritan zeal many settlers from Scotland and England went over to Ireland, particularly to what us now Northern Ireland, and settled there.
There is a cleansing which is most valuable, available to all through the atoning sacrifice of God's Son, and it brings you eternal life.
Revelation 1:5-6 KJV (5)Â And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, (6)Â And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
