This tragic Western country is noted for its anarchical political correctness, radical feminism, pro-LGBT policies, constant threats to Christian parents to take away their children if they offend the PC rules, unlimited Islamic immigration with no go and Sharia law zones in many of its large cities, where women on their own, reporters with cameras and even local police dare not enter, an apostate Lutheran "state" church with a woman archbishop at its head which practices feminism, celebrates LGBT "weddings" and now where God must not be referred to as "He".
Sweden is leading the way in the cashless society that will be the hallmark of the future Antichrist ruler, though she did not adopt the EU euro, she is pioneering "no cash allowed" establishments, and even people having chips under their skin for payment, etc.
On top of this wicked rebellion we now have this Transgender nonsense and fake "science" telling children and adults they can change their sex at the drop of a hat. Let us pray for all the faithful remnant in this sad country!!!
It certainly appears that the North Korean Army is in bad shape as far as the actual soldiers are concerned. I suspect that much of the money goes on the equipment, and weapons, not so much on the men and women that serve!!!
True, there are many cultish churches in South Korea, as well as those in the Western countries that might want to take advantage if North Korea collapsed.
However, there are also true churches and assemblies that would also come in. I understand that South Korea has many non-charismatic Reformed churches where the doctrines of grace are preached and the Bible faithfully expounded.
What might indeed happen, in the last days, is that the bad, and the good would flood in to North Korea if ever that wicked regime fell, but after a while, as will happen here in the West, and is happening before our very eyes, and notably now in Russia, the window of opportunity will close after a while, as it will even on South Korea, as we are in now in the last of the last days, and in both North and South Korea, just before the Lord comes, there will be persecution again, and the truth will endure for those who are elect.
God is sovereign and will be glorified, and will have His people, even in a time of national apostasy.
God told Elijah, who thought he was alone, that there were 7,000 who had not bowed the knee to Baal in Israel. God always has a remnant, and we are to still preach the Gospel and be faithful. I do pray that this soldier who left North Korea, will fully recover, and a
Thanks, Quiet Christian. I myself have struggled a lot in my working life, and have found it very difficult to relate socially.
I was diagnosed only a few years ago, late in life, with a mild version of Asperger's Syndrome, and feel very strongly about this issue.
My mother and family did their best for me, without any diagnosis, when I was young, or knowing why I had difficulties, and I was able by the grace of God, to go to college, where I was born again, and pursue a teaching career in both schools and further education, but again with a lot of difficulty.
Ironically, I have taught a number of people with mild developmental difficulties, and they have often proved a lot more responsive and willing than the regular students!!'
After Frank Stevens, the Downs Syndrome man who testified so eloquently before a Congressional committee, this young lady, Madison Essig, who graduated from high school in the very capital of the USA and is going to university to study disability and advocacy is another one in the eye for the Canaanite Nazi eugenicists of Planned Parenthood and similar organisations.
If either of these young people had appeared in a pregnancy test or ultra sound in Iceland, or even here in Britain, they most likely wouldn't even have been born, let alone going to school, testifying before a committee or going to university.
Sadly, the first thing is that though there were some other elders and deacons in this church, they were obviously not functioning as the Bible commands.
The pastor should not have been able to make a unilateral change of policy, in fact, a change of doctrine, without the eldership being able to challenge him successfully and stop his plan, and if he persisted, take the necessary action, and remove him from being pastor, which they should be able to do, even if he was the founding pastor. Due credit, however goes to the 2 elders that resigned in protest, and the half of the congregation that also left this church.
Secondly, the teaching ministry of this church was obviously not Biblical. Too many churches are based on loud CCM, rock style, entertainment, topical studies which only slightly use scripture, out of context, and intensive programmes for every section of the church, but which are not scripturally based, but more or less, purely social.
God has weighed this Church, found it wanting, and its assets are to be sold to another church hopefully more Biblical, but it's sheep have been scattered, some hopefully to more Biblically based and faithful churches.
Methinks that every Catholic who works in a coal mine, heavy industry, power plant, etc., plus those in mining, oil and industrial towns should denounce this pope, as he wants to put them all out of work.
All poor and elderly Catholics should denounce this man, as he wants their energy bills to go sky high, because the alternative to fossil fuels is so prohibitively expensive.
All Catholics who love democracy and individual freedom should denounce this Pope, as he wants to hand them over to the one world globaliists and those in the Middle East, who have been slaughtered by ISIS and other Islamic fanatics, and seen their churches and monasteries destroyed, should loudly denounce him, as he is a friend to the Muslims, who actually regard him as a "useful idiot".
Let us pray that these dear Catholic people will stop trusting in this man, and cone instead to a Biblical faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as their sole Mediator, Redeemer, Saviour, Lord and King.
Yes, indeed what absolute lunacy!! Maths teachers, and good maths teachers like this one in particular, are in very short supply, and there are always government calls and adverts for the recruitment of more maths teachers.
Rather than Mr Suttcluffe being on the carpet, or sent to the staff room, as I understand he was, the principal of this school should be disciplined, and the parents of the pupil who complained should also be very ashamed of what they are doing with their daughter, yes daughter.
She is not a boy, (and later a man), and never will be, no matter what she says to the contrary, or no matter what chemical and surgical butchery she may submit herself to, or no matter what male clothes she may choose to wear, or restroom she may choose to visit.
Sadly, our "liberal" "Conservative" PM, Teresa May, and her lesbian Education Minister, who is also the Equalities Minister as well, Justine Greening, is committed to this transgender revolution, as well as the LGBT agenda generally.
Basically the struggle was in the end between the former Vice-President, whom Mugabe sacked, and Mugabe's wife, Grace Mugabe.
Both characters sound most unsavoury, and either sounds very much as if they would continue the disastrous policies of Robert Mugabe himself.
In the end, it looks as if the Vice-President will win, because he has the support of the military, and Grace Mugabe, unlike Sally Mugabe, who was Robert Mugabe's first very popular wife, is most unpopular with the ruling ZANU-PF party, as with many of the people.
My feeling is that the army will keep Robert Mugabe in a kind of honourable house arrest for the rest of his life, give him a state funeral at the end of it, the Vice President will take over, and then Grace Mugabe, unless she can escape, will be quietly done away with, or possibly put on trial.
I am not sure that things will change too much for the better in Zimbabwe.
At the end of the day, God is sovereign and He may order things totally differently!!!
Apart from certain remote islands, where the Reformed churches, (with their famous unaccompanied congregational psalm singing), are still strong, it seems that the rest of Scotland has followed a terrible delusion.
Until recently, 4 of the 6 party leaders of political parties in Scotland were active homosexuals, lesbians or bisexual, and the remaining 2 were sympathisers of the LGBT agenda.
It is a sad reflection on a nation that was famous for John Knox, and the Covenanters.
What is so tragic is that the ordinary folks who do not have 4 year (or in Britain it is usually 3 year) degrees, generally instinctively oppose such arrant nonsense and wickedness, but don't go out actively and oppose it.
Even a lot of the secular and non-Christian folks oppose this, but under the pounding of the biased left wing media, and the propaganda of "those experts and authorities that know better", and because of a fear of not being PC, or "encouraging bullying", they do nothing.
A tiny minority of intellectual "experts", protecting a tiny minority of perverted and sad individuals, are thus able to force their views on a silent majority of people who know instinctively that there is male and there is female from birth, nay from conception, and that is sensed by even those folks who are not Christian believers.
Romans 1 is surely in operation here, and God is giving our governments and intelligentsia over to a depraved mind.
One can only hope that the US Federal Congress and Senate, the FBI, the federal health authorities, and so on, backed by the US President, will pound this repeatedly, and get that evil Canaanite eugenics organisation Planned Parenthood prosecuted to the ends of the law, and the "scientific research" bodies, and "baby parts suppliers" it sold to, as well as by those state legislatures and governors that are still faithful to pro-life principles in their own states.
God will require it, and this wicked organisation will fall, in its arrogance and evil activity.
David Dalieden and his staff who researched and produced these videos, who were, and still are, under prosecution by the wicked state authorities of the "People's Republic of California", and various activist leftist US federal judges, are well and truly justified and vindicated, and will be proved right in what they did.
PP must be exposed for what it is, and fall in a mass of mire and scandal, as has happened already in Hollywood, and with various MPs in our British Parliament.
innovation, did not get out and vote, that every true evangelical church did not mobilise its membership to oppose this measure, and that it was left to the apostate churches and secular activists to organise their folks, which I am sure, tragically, they did very effectively.
Australia has now gone down the same route as Britain, USA, and many places in Europe, South Africa, Argentina, and many other Western countries.
Islam, and Muslims will of course be totally exempt from these requirements, and the LGBT crowd know better than to try to force their agenda on the Muslims!!!
Tragically, Australia will soon join the club of countries where this perversion is legalised, Christians will be persecuted, and as I understand it, (perhaps Dave from Oz may know differently, but I doubt if he has heard anything different), the conniving Australian Government has deliberately as a matter of policy left out any provision of religious freedom of conscience for Christians opposed to thus, so there will no doubt be a rash of civil and criminal discrimination cases against them, for refusing to provide cakes, flowers, photographs, use of their wedding facilities etc, for such "unions", people in public and even private jobs being sacked or disciplined for opposing "gay marriage" on their private websites and social media, Christian bed and breakfasts and small family run private hotels prosecuted for not allowing "gay" couples to share a room, and so on.
Adoption agencies will be forced to adopt out and foster out children to homosexual and lesbian couples, even Christian agencies, and will be prosecuted or put out of business if they refuse.
Despite any false political promises to the contrary, even Christian evangelical ministers will be forced to conduct "gay weddings" or be prosecuted.
How tragic that every Australian who did not support this wicked i
It reminds me of what the dying daughter-in-law, of Eli the compromising High Priest and Judge of Israel, who had failed to discipline her husband, his son, and also her husband's brother, as she gave birth to her son, said of the name which the baby was to be called.
Her wicked husband, and his brother, the deputies of their weak compromising father, Eli, sinned with women in the temple, and took their portion of the sacrifices by force, before it was properly cooked and the blood fully drained., abominable sins in God's eyes.
They had just taken the Ark out to war against the Philistines, like a kind of magical talisman, and it had been captured, and they had been slain, as well as a great defeat for Israel, and her father-in-law also fell down and died when he heard of it.
The wife, dying as she brought her son to birth, refused the ministrations and comfort of the midwives, and called her son "Ichabod", "The Glory has Departed".
What a tragically apt description of this compromising "mega Church" and its pastor, and how sad. Thankfully, two elders and at least half the congregation resigned as soon as the pastor made this iniquitous decision to hold LGBT "weddings" and affirm this wicked lifestyle.
This comes hot on the heels of the official Church of England report sponsored by the Archbishop of Canterbury which fully backed the Transgender revolution in Church of England LEA (local authority aided), academies and free schools, (the latter centrally funded by government, as well as private and Church money).
This all out attack on Biblical principles that have been held for thousands of years in our previously Judeo-Christian society is already leading to persecution of Christians as teachers are already being disciplined for "misgendering" "transgender" pupils!!! What madness. The true church must rise up and firmly say "No, we will not have this". They wouldn't dare prosecute a Muslim teacher, and Islam will of course be exempt from this.
May God raise up Christian pastors, parents, teachers and others who will stand against this, even if it costs them their jobs, or they have to go to prison or pay fines!!! That is what this is coming to.
The Church that I was baptised in many decades ago as a believer sang old doctrinal hymns at that time with a pipe organ accompaniment.
Under the same pastor some decades later they have moved to unaccompanied psalms only (the pipe organ is still there but locked up and hasn't been used for years, as presumably is the piano in the Church hall).
No festivals are celebrated (Christmas never was even when I was there, but in my time there was a Good Friday devotional service).
However, in the sermon, (I have heard some on SA, and visited the church once a couple of years ago), the pastor will occasionally quote from a hymn, which expresses a doctrinal statement that is being preached about, though of course, such quotes are obviously completely secondary and rare, compared to the quotes from Scripture.
