British Christians feel oppressed in the public square
LONDON - For a nation shaped by an overtly Christian heritage, Britain has apparently become a difficult place to be overtly Christian.
The conservative press bewails a steady erosion of Christian values. A member of Parliament has called for debate on "systematic and institutional discrimination toward Christians." Even former Prime Minister Tony Blair recently let slip how aides would brusquely suppress any instinct he had to bring his faith into public view.
Now, a succession of ordinary Christians are finding this rule applies to them, too....
2Tim 2:12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
Prov 29:16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall.
God is scaling down His witness. The question is why?
The answer is in the churches which deny Christ as the only means of salvation and call this country a "multifaith" land. There is no such place on earth, only Christ and idolatry. Faith in Christ and man's darkness and invention.
Psalm 12:1 Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men
8 The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted"
