With 'Vladimir' Corbyn and the commie unions in control --- Absolutely yes!
The Conservative Party seems to be leaning Left too!!

Persecution of Christians is a doctrine and an extensive theme of Scripture. For this ideology to erupt into a civil war in the western nations should be no surprise to Christians.
Churches have been destroyed by Satan's false religion of Liberalism and Satan now runs denominations such as Anglican---Episcoplian and other 'churches, like the mammon worshippers mega churches et al.
Society itself is secular and reprobate therefore anti--Christian.
The Lord warns us about persecution being part of life for His Followers, for example Matt 5.
Satan's disease of Liberalism --- The Left --- Are described in Scripture as the 'goats ' - on the Left. Whilst the sheep on the right are Christians. Matt:25:33. - So the world conforms to the prophetic word.
The solution to all these evil attacks by Satan is the armour of God explained in Ephesians chapter six. Faith. Prayer and Sword of the Word. God be with us in the battle. Amen.
Looks like Botswana and the UN have gone over to Satan instead of Repentance of sin. God will punish them for this disobedience and depravity.
Rom 1:25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind"
"But who is regulating affairs on this earth today-God, or the Devil? Attempt to take a serious and comprehensive view of the world. What a scene of confusion and chaos confronts us on every side! Sin is rampant; lawlessness abounds; evil men and seducers are waxing "worse and worse" (2 Tim. 3:13). Today, everything appears to be out of joint. Thrones are creaking and tottering, ancient dynasties are being overturned, democracies are revolting, civilization is a demonstrated failure; half of Christendom was but recently locked-together in a death grapple; and now that the titantic conflict is over, instead of the world having been made "safe for democracy," we have discovered that democracy is very unsafe for the world. Unrest, discontent, and lawlessness are rife everywhere, and none can say how soon another great war will be set in motion. Statesmen are perplexed and staggered. Men's hearts are "failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth" (Luke 21:26). Do these things look as though God had full control?"
Sounds familiar of today's world......
Actually Arthur Pink wrote these lines in 1928,
From his book 'The Sovereignty of God.'
How Christians view the world can be overwhelming and scary -- Walk by faith not by sight.
""The Vatican condemned gender theory on Monday as part of a ‚Äúconfused concept of freedom‚ÄĚ"
No! It is the evil superstitions of the blind ignorant and sinful reprobates.
Eph 4:17 .... in the vanity of their mind, 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."
Quote: ‚ÄúNo proof of the fullness of sin, after all, is so overwhelming and unanswerable as the cross and passion of our Lord Jesus Christ and the whole doctrine of His substitution and atonement. Terribly black must that guilt be for which nothing but the blood of the Son of God could make satisfaction. Heavy must that weight of human sin be which made Jesus groan and sweat drops of blood in agony at Gethsemane and cry at Golgotha, ‚ÄėMy God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? Nothing, I am convinced, will astonish us so much, when we awake in the resurrection day, as the view we will have of sin and the retrospect we will take of our own countless shortcomings and defects." (J.C.Ryle)
Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God."
"THERE are two very powerful forces in the world, which have been here ever since the time when Eve partook of the forbidden fruit in the garden of Eden. Those two forces are sin and grace. A very great power is sin, a power dark, mysterious, baleful, but full of force. The sorrows of mankind, whence came they but from sin? We should have known no war, nor pestilence, nor famine, nor would aught of sickness or sorrow ever have smitten the human race had not sin sown its evil seed in this earth. Sin is the Pandora's box from which all evil has come to mankind" (C.H.Spurgeon)
""Transgender woman Autumn Scardina filed a second lawsuit against Phillips last Wednesdayin District Court for the city and county of Denver""
The evil that is within this defiled 'person' is as follows....
Mark 7:20 And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. 21 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."
The unsaved reprobates are really in a satanic mess thus they are malevolent, vile, nefarious and abhorrent existence.
The actions and thoughts of this 'person' demonstrate how evil they are.
We are called to pity such as these since we were once like it. Called 'sinner'
May God have mercy on them! - If HE decides not to do that then they will spend an eternity in hell being punished for such a heinous criminal life.
Rom 1:28 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 ....
The Vatican and its evil community is a den of iniquity. Depravity at its lowest ebb can be observed in the Roman Catholic history of satanic rejections of the Bible and the dolatry and heresy of a totally false witness.
Truly this sinful organisation is used by Satan to manifest mankinds most vile and abhorrent wickedness. Idolatry, heresy, deception and abuse of children.
The reprobate at his most sinful worst is perceived in the Roman Catholic organisation.
Calling this a 'church' is Satan's evil deception to fool the gullible and ignorant into believing that religion is objectionable and offensive.
"‚ÄĘ God‚Äôs providential direction as an unseen, behind the scenes, primary cause should not lead us to denying the reality of our choices and actions. Scripture affirms that we really do cause events to happen. We are significant and responsible. We do have choices and these are real choices that bring about real results. Just as God has created water with the property of wetness, so God has made us with the property of willing choice. [Grudem, p.321]
‚ÄĘ God causes all things that happen but he does so in a way that he somehow upholds our ability to make willing, responsible choices, choices that have real and eternal results and for which we are accountable. Exactly how God combines his providential control with our willing and significant choices scripture does not tell us. [Grudem, p.321]"
‚ÄĘ We cannot say that our choices are not determined in someway by God because of the number of passages which affirm the providential control of God. There would be the formidable difficult of how to reinterpret passages which suggest God is not providentially in control. We need to be faithful to the teaching of scripture, rather than deny God‚Äôs providence or the reality of human choice. [Grudem, p.321]"
", ‚ÄúAnd lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.‚ÄĚ (Matthew 6:13 King James Version) The pontiff has swapped the ‚Äúlead us not into temptation‚ÄĚ portion to ‚Äúdo not let us fall into temptation.‚ÄĚ ...""
Matt 6:13 "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
"The term temptation in the general signifieth a trial, and is sometimes used to express God‚Äôs trials of his people‚Äôs faith and obedience, but most ordinarily to express Satan‚Äôs trials of us, by motions to sin; which may be from our own lusts, Jam 1:13,14; or from the devil, who is therefore called the tempter; or from the world. These are the temptations which we are commanded to pray against: not that God leads any persons into such temptations, unless by the permission of his providence.
But deliver us from evil; from the evil one, as some read it, because of the article prefixed; but others think it not material whether we understand the devil, who is the evil one, or the evil of temptations, which harm us not if we be not overcome by them." (Matthew Poole Commentary) ===== Pope's version - ‚Äúdo not let us fall into temptation.‚ÄĚ Contradicts Rev 22:18/19.
God 'allows' the trials and tribulations of His servants to test them.
Psalm 7:9 .... for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins."

There is no excuse for the murder of the unborn child.
After conception there is NO WAY to 'remove' a life except by killing that life.
Abortion is government and bureaucratic serial killing be evil people.
Abortion is against the Laws of God for which the killers and their accomplices will be convicted and punished.
Nations which allow and validate abortion are guilty of murder of innocent children. God will and does take lawful action against such nations. As we can see the western nations are suffering decline in many ways health, financial, governmental incompetence, education, law and order............etc etc.
