Non sequitur wrote: If you're talking about the basket case known as the Church of England led by the reigning monarch, you're correct. Whereas, if you mean the the Church whose focus is Rome and keys are Peter's, you stand corrected.
Correction declined. You are being anachronistic.
There was no UK in the days of pre-reformation papal tyranny. And regarding that tyranny it was more the case that the countries of the isles were vassal states of a foreign religio-political potentate. None of this has anything to do with the church as Popery was and is of the very essence of antichrist.
If you lived in my part of the world you would be blessed to find a meeting house to go to, unless you like cups of tea served whilst the minister hands out the sermon, or a little bit of dancing, or a bit of shouting from the pulpit, or different versions of scripture
Gaming is a game of chance. Christians should not gamble and encourage others to do so by doing so. God has a well ordered universe. Man creates chaos, and mystery, chance, that life is but a game of chance, wherein anything and just about anything can happen.
The commandments of God are good. Christians, as they live in them through the grace of God, being fulfilled by the Son of God, naturally uphold them, are living examples of them, and should be so to others. We cannot pick and choose, for we are brought with a price. If we break the sabbath what testimony does that give to those who look upon us as god-fearing people? We would rightly be called hypocrites. If we wish for a lawful society we had best show how just the law is by upholding it, not for justification, but for peace ands quite within a nation.
The Church of Jesus Christ should continue to preach morality, single marriages, loving marriages, of morals and ethics, of law and grace. This would really annoy the sodomites. You do not have to protest so much about them as to attack them by moral preaching. You watch the fur fly when you preach that a man and a woman should love one another, bring up their children to fear God.
It is an offense, and the sodomites know it, against God and His order to do such things. But, then, God gave them over (Rom.1.18) to do such things as a judgement to them which they shall come to regret hereafter.
Scotland is a strange, but beautiful country, in parts. I have no doubt that if life is discovered in this part of the world it will not be life as we know it. There is a move afoot, by the Scotish parliament to bankrupt the country by separating from England, so one can see why they would not mind taking up with new science.
I recently saw a TV documentary about a woman who complained about church bells in her neighborhood Sunday morning and the bells were silenced to placate her. Too bad she wasn't told to be more inclusive!
