"they found that a large crucifix had been ripped from an interior wall, the chairs had been slashed, and wires leading to the churchâ€™s speakers and piano keyboard had been cut."
This is just mindless hooliganism. We have a lot of this in UK especially today. Modern times is breeding criminal activity and moral decline as described in Romans Chapter one v18-32. The reason for this is the death of the church and the ditching of the Bible.
Authority and decency are a thing of the past in this country, as can be seen in the rise of abortion and sodomy. Even the national churches C of E and C of S are morally corrupt now.
The disease which perpetrates this crimewave is of course Liberalism.
Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without.....etc
"The Palestinian Authority continues to incite young schoolchildren to armed struggle against Israel in its textbooks â€“ textbooks that are used by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) to teach incitement in Israel's capital city, says investigative reporter David Bedein, who spoke in an interview with Arutz Sheva's Hebrew-language news service.
The books in question include passages praising terrorists killed while attacking Israel as â€śmartyrsâ€ť. They also teach children that Arabs descended from those who fled Israel during the War of Independence have a right to â€śreturnâ€ť to Israel."

Wonder if dear ole Barack helped with this? After all the UN is into Liberalism too.
"in July the Vatican branded female ordination a delictum gravius, or grave crime, the same label it has given pedophilia"
Kettle calling the pot again?
With many of their female cousins on the other side of the fence usurping the place of men, wearing male gender garb and jettisoning the female role for male positions in society, its not surprising that Satan would turn everything upside down in the antichrist's organisation too. Watch this space - a female pope????
"his stances resound deeply with Dutch voters, who have reconsidered their famous tolerance amid fears their own culture is being eroded by immigrants who don't share their values."
At the other end of this century it could be the other way round, with Dutch people (in common with other european nations) having less and less children, they will be in the minority. Perhaps the muslims just have to wait and we will all disappear?

John Ref the Pope's theology.
"how such views affect Ratzingerâ€™s theology of the resurrection of Christ. Certainly, he dismisses an 'earthly and material notion of resurrection' and resists defining it as a real historical event. "The Resurrection cannot be an historical event in the same sense as the Crucifixion is", he says. 'For that matter, there is no account that depicts it as such, nor is it circumscribed in time otherwise than by the eschatological-symbolical expression "the third day".'
Ratzinger brushes aside all attempts to verify the resurrection as a historical event and asserts that it was really a matter of personal experience. Christ is 'the one who died on the cross and to the *eye of faith,* rose again from the dead'. How far this is from the biblical truth of passages such as John 20:27: 'Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing'. What a contrast with the clear and faithful summary provided in the Westminster Confession: 'On the third day he arose from the dead, with the same body in which he suffered' (8:4)." (M Vogan)
Hey John Here is some of Pope Benedict XVI's theology... Can you spot the errors?
"The doctrine of the resurrection of the body. The continuity of Ratzingerâ€™s theological views from his apparently-radical past is seen in his best known, most systematic book, Introduction to Christianity. The book seeks to explain the Apostlesâ€™ Creed in the light of contemporary Roman Catholic dogma. When Ratzinger approaches the clause, 'I believe in the resurrection of the body', he recognises that this doctrine is a 'stumbling block to the modern mind' (p 232). His definition is both strange and ambiguous. 'Resurrection', he writes, 'expresses the idea that the immortality of man can exist and be thought of only in the fellowship of men' (p 172). The doctrine, he claims, creates a 'curious dilemma' (p 238) because modern liberal theologians no longer believe that body and soul can be identified as separate entities, something that Ratzinger dismisses, together with the immortality of the soul, as a Greek notion which has 'become obsolete' (p 241)."

Powerful message. And thankyou for sharing it William.
Yes we should teach and preach the whole counsel of God, thats the Whole Bible and not just the "nice" bits. Where God has denounced specific sin, especially lust today, then we observe that we are in the midst of conflict. Thus in the armour of God together with the shield of faith and the sword of the Word we contend for Christ. If the Lord has stated it then we must proclaim the whole of His counsel, even when it is difficult in our society.
Acts 20:27 For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God."
"you're always going to have those that oppose this on moral and religious grounds just like you still have racists today."
moral and religious grounds??? God said... Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. And... Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator....."
Jessica Dawson wrote: Rick Mercer, a popular political comedian in Canada said of Focus on The Family, that they: "[t]hink about gay sex more than gay people do." Is it God's will that we obsess with how many people out there, are engaging in same sex relations?
I think the thing about it Jessica, is that it features huge in God's response to this specific sin. Viz what God did.... Gen 19:24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; 25 And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground."
Also Romans 1:18 people ditch the Word and the Law of God and God's response recorded is.... Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature"
Thus God's actual response to this depraved lust is very specific in mankinds experience.
"And yes gents, it's all your fault. The study also showed that the unemployed member of the unmarried pair was often male."
With morals on the decrease we are not surprised. With church in decline we are even less surprised. But it does demonstrate that Christian Biblical ethics makes a huge difference to the nation. As for the female out to work whilst the male remains at home - Satan always did like turning things on their head.
"No pontiff has visited since Henry VIII severed ties with the Catholic Church, and things are not entirely resolved as the Pope is to land in Scotland, not England."
Pope John Paul II becomes first pontiff to visit Britain. On the morning of 28 May 1982.
The antichrist has been to the UK before and there was a big shindig by his heretical followers then too.
Apparently today when Benny 16 arrived Archbishop Rowan of the Liberal C of E was there to meet him. Obviously Rowan does not know his 39 articles!!!
Rev Ian Paisley said about pope's visit.... "He told them: "We're here today on very solemn and serious matters. I've just seen the statement that has been issued by the Roman Catholic Church about this visit and we are told that if we go to this mass here today then we will have a shortened purgatory and our sins will be forgiven - ÂŁ25 and you'll get out of purgatory quicker."
Looks like the Pope &co are up to their old tricks again.
Clinton should read Wikipedia.. Quote; "Current flooding is blamed on unprecedented monsoon rain. The rainfall anomaly map published by NASA shows unusually intense monsoon rains. These intense monsoon rains were forecast by Pakistan meteorological department. Pakistan meteorological department shows above average rainfall in the months of July and Aug 2010. Pakistan meteorological department shows the flood wave progression. There is a history of flooding with past floods in 1997, 1995, and 1988 which shows that such discharge levels had been witnessed in the past as well." (Wiki)
