Now back to the point made. The 'christian' went to church carrying a gun. Did he trust God.? Or did he trust gun.? If God. Then why carry a gun? Is God responsible for arming the people in pews today?
Of all the dreams that ever deluded men and probably of all blasphemes that ever were uttered, there has never been one which is more absurd and which is more fruitful in all manner of mischief than the idea that the Bishop of Rome can be the head of the church of Jesus Christ. No, these popes die and how could the church live if its head were dead? The true Head ever lives and the church ever liveth in him.
The pope himself must turn from Romeâ€™s papal teachings and put faith alone in Christ alone. Until he does, the pope is not an asset, but an affront, to Christâ€™s church." (Eric Davis)
""to act impartially to persons appearing before her as a judge due to the person's sexual orientation,""
Those who are judging this judge are NOT acting impartially towards her.
The society in this case is acting "partially" biased, and prejudiced against the Christian believers.
Thousands of years of history demonstrate that society today has changed the normal laws of mankind to accommodate the morally corrupt community.
GOD states.... Isaih 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
We dutifully advise society to stop their crimes against GOD. The wrath of GOD is coming.
Nahum 1:2 God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies. 3 The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet."
Rom 12:17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord."
Matt 5:38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 39 But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. 41 And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain."
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust."
Rom 13:4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for HE IS THE MINISTER OF GOD, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil."

"The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" Jer 17:9.
"For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: 23 All these evil things come from within, and defile the man." Mark 7:21....
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: 14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: 15 Their feet are swift to shed blood: 16 Destruction and misery are in their ways: 17 And the way of peace have they not known: 18 There is no fear of God before their eyes." Rom 3:10.....
From Article:: ""Where is the Church of England on all this? Nowhere at all, or rather on the wrong side entirely. Not a peep of support for those being persecuted for standing up for biology and biblical beliefs""
The Church of England is so far from Bible belief that it conforms to the reprobate world in everything it says and does.
The C.of E. is the voice of the antichrist - NOT the voice of Jesus Christ. That's Liberalism for you.
Trans-gender is totally impossible anyone with a brain cell knows that fact. Politicians and apparently judges have decided that biological reality is questionable and indiscernible. Blind, ignorant and alienated from the life of God.
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" Isaiah 5:20.
All four belong to the sinful world of fallen man.
Confession to God has the power of God unto salvation. Confession to man lands on the deck.
Confessing to GOD. 1John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us."
It was to be expected that today's generation would rather worship Mammon than serve God.
Psalm 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. 4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. 5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate."
""Chinaâ€™s Communist Party requires that Protestants worship only in churches recognized and regulated by the officially sanctioned Three-Self Patriotic Movement.""
Communism demonstrating its fear of the Church and Bible again.
Communist countries are manifesting their fears by persecuting the church goers.
Satan controls the communist - socialist- Liberalist worldly ideologies and uses them to attack all things christian.
Whereas Democrats in the US join these political scams and try to force them on the American people. When will the voters learn??
We must pray for the churches in China and ask God to bring their light to shine on the hearts of the people. The struggle continues.
2Cor 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
Rom 5:3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."

Matt 26:52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. 53 Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my Father, and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels?"
""An Islamic State terrorist faction in West Africa claims it killed 11 Christian aid workers in Nigeria in retaliation for the killings .... ""
Ignorance, moronic and asinine in the mortal makes for all the acts of evil and demonic activities in man. The 'brute beast.'
Eph 4:18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness."
Psalm 14:4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD."
Jude :10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. 11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core."
It is curious that anti-semitism is on the rise again. Question is why?
Over centuries the Jews have been subjected to pogroms, holocausts and hostilities. Why ???
After the events of WWII you might expect the western nations to strongly refrain from any attack on the Jewish people. Yet here we are again.
Is this a message from Satan and his dark forces?
Usually the anti-semite is one of the local morons who has an attitude of hostility and arrogance anyway. But why would he of little brain cell, take this attitude towards the people of Israel? They tell us it is a form of racism? But over many centuries and persistent? and consistent?
Ah the C.of E. religion of Liberalism - Worldly ideology and of course PC.
Thus do we see the religious reprobates parading their ignorance and blindness, alienated from the life of God. (Eph 4:18)
Is it so strange that sin blinds the mortal and directs him to human concocted religious convictions? No! In a world where we have the RCC, JW's, Mormons, Pagans and muslims etc... We can see that mans sinful imagination takes him to heights which he believes are divine.
Liberalism is bits of the Bible with truth scraped away to make it acceptable to the creature and his false superstitions.
In due course over history the C.of E. and the C.of S. have fallen prey to man's rebellion from God. Looking for an alternative he just makes it up and pats himself on the head thinking he is 'wise'.
Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things."
By the Grace of God I have never used "recreational" drugs ever in my life. Praise the Lord.
Quote::- "How can recreational drugs affect mental health?
All drugs have some kind of effect on your mental health. They affect the way you see things, your mood and your behaviour.
These effects may:
be pleasant or unpleasant be short-lived or longer-lasting be similar to those you experience as part of a mental health problem go away once the drug has worn off continue once the drug has worn off For some people, taking drugs can lead to long-term mental health problems, such as depression or schizophrenia." (Mind)
Well at least Boris has released the UK from the Federalist dictatorship which Germany and France are trying to establish in Europe. The Federalists (Remainers) would take Britain's sovereignty, laws and freedoms and impose dictatorship from Germany and France - via Brussels.
Quote::- "Federalisation of the European Union is the proposed institutional process by which the European Union (EU) is transformed from an informal confederation (a union of sovereign states) towards a federation (a single federal state with a central government, consisting of a number of partially self-governing federated states). There is ongoing discussion about the extent to which the EU has already become a federation over the course of decades, and more importantly, to what degree it should continue to evolve into a federalist direction."

In 1973 Britain voted for a "Common Market". Since then the (sneaky) Political oligarchy has built and established a Federalist Parliament in Brussels; - Which WE did not vote for.
2Timothy 3:12 Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted,
John 15:18 â€œIf the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.
Matthew 5:10 â€œBlessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
1 Peter 4:12-14 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.
