Bill Nye, the evolutionary propaganda and philosopher of scientism guy, has associated himself with the weirdest video I have ever seen. I am too busy tonight preparing for an actual scientific conference I am presenting at in London tomorrow to comment at length, but the video (if you can watch it before it is taken down) speaks for itself.
In the same way that a diseased flatulent anus does.
I have noted with slight interest the sorrows of little Timmy Farron, current leader of the Lib Dems. He is said to be a ‘devout Christian’ which naturally means that the liberal media have been trying to box him into a corner over sexual politics and force him to recant or be destroyed. He has recanted. Apparently he now supports homosexual behaviour AND abortion. It won’t do him much good, he is now fatally wounded and I confidently expect his party will throw him under the bus on June 9th or by October at the latest.
It is often said that Christians and the Church are ‘obsessed with what people do in their bedrooms’ but as the hounding of Tim Farron, exacerbated by the coming election frenzy, shows, it is the liberal media and society as a whole that is obsessed with sex. They are also obsessed with thought control and the exclusion of anything resembling an authentic Christian from public office.
I don’t have time or energy to dissect Farron’s total history of pronouncements and votes over the issues of homo sex, abortion etc, suffice it to say that he has not always come across as 100% supportive of the sexual revolutionary agenda. This is enough to have got him targeted by the likes of David Baddiel, Owen Jones, The Independent, et cetera.
A few outlying voices such as the International Business Times and The Spectator to their credit have pointed out the unreasonableness of haranguing a public figure over his private religious views, but this only underlines the Christian-baiting mob mentality of most of our mainstream media and key opinion formers who have relentlessly gone after Farron.
The mauling that the inoffensive but very naive Tim Farron has received basically sends a strong signal to any man or woman who seeks public office-the cultural Marxist ascendancy demands your life, your soul, your all. Believing Christians need not apply for public office. It goes without saying that Muslims are given a free pass although they are the ones actually calling for the death of homosexuals. Cultural Marxists find a natural ally in Islam, as both parties hate Western Civilisation (formerly known as Christendom) and want to replace it with a different kind of society. The cultural Marxists and their storm troopers in the sexual revolutionary movement are blinded to the fact that once Christianity has been swallowed, they are next on the menu.
By a thousand nasty little bullying, thought controlling acts like this, we are actively building a dechristianised society. It is coming, it is well advanced. Whether the coming fully post Christian Britain will be a rationalist Utopia or something much darker is something I considered in my novel Darwin’s Adders: A Chronicle of Pagan England 2089 99p from Amazon.
Listening to the Radio 4 ‘Sunday’ religious whitewash, soft soap, taqiyah and drivel report this morning. Slightly worse than usual, but not by a big margin. Among subjects considered was a survey of 1,000 people about their belief in ‘the after life’.
The programme is available to listen to on the BBC , click here.
The story was that of people surveyed described as ‘nominal Christians’ a quarter did not believe that Jesus was raised from the dead, while a similar proportion of people describing themselves as having no religion (not necessarily atheists) believed in an ‘afterlife’ (mostly reincarnation). Also some 5% of people attending church at least once a month said they did not believe in the Resurrection.
This may be of some interest as a snapshot of poplar belief, but it isn’t news. In fact, diverse beliefs about what happens to us when we die, and professing Christians denying the Resurrection are both mentioned in the New Testament. The Jewish Sadducee sect denied the resurrection, and Hebrews 9:27 tells us that ‘Just as people are destined to die once, and after that to face judgment…‘ and Paul addressed the denial of Christ’s Resurrection in his 1st letter to the Corinthians, chapter 15 in particular.
Of course no Bible Christians were asked to comment on the report’s findings and the BBC journalist’s interpretation of them, that never happens on this programme, but some London ‘skeptics’ (the new name atheists prefer to give themselves *) all said they didn’t believe in an afterlife ‘as I have seen no evidence’. It was interesting that all 3 ‘skeptics’ interviewed used almost the exact same phrase, just like people who have been coached.
It did not occur to the interviewer to ask them what evidence they might expect for a life after this one, what paradigms and assumptions they brought to evaluate any supposed evidence, where they had looked for evidence, if they thought they might be biased because of personal preference that there was no God to be accountable to, or if they had ever considered reading books like, Oh I dunno, say The Evidence For The Resurrection’.
Jesus said (Luke chapter 16) that if men did not want to listen to what God has mercifully chosen to say to them, they would not believe even if someone rose from the dead. He then proved His Deity by rising from the dead, and many still disbelieved. The ‘skeptic’ chant of ‘there is no evidence’ is just a wish fulfilling mantra repeated to reinforce a belief, on the same level as the Muslim chant ‘There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet’.
‘There is no evidence’-says the man with his hands over his ears and eyes in the face of evidence pointing to a fact he doesn’t like. Friends, don’t we see this in everyday life even about quite simple things that we can measure? We humans tend to decide what we would like to be the case, then develop, manipulate and invent positive evidence for our preferred position, while denying, suppressing, ridiculing and ignoring evidence pointing the other way. Just read any newspaper. ‘Fake News’ is just a new name for a very old and widespread phenomenon.
If anyone reading this considers they are truly skeptical, i.e. willing to doubt their comfortable certainties and consider dangerous evidence pointing to unwelcome conclusions (**) then click on the link above to some evidence for Christ’s return from death. If that’s too much trouble, ask yourself why the disciples spread the story they had seen the risen Christ, under persecution to death (none of them got rich). The only explanation ( as opposed to grave robbing, mass hallucination, a deliberate lie, ‘Jesus only swooned’ etc) that makes sense is that they were telling the truth. If you have a better suggestion, the comment section is open.
(*) I have been to a few ‘Skeptics’ meetings and its quite a laugh on one level. The trouble is that these people have such incredibly high self esteem, when they accuse theists of having ‘blind faith’ they never see the three fingers pointing back at them.
(**) One of the atheists’ biggest lies is that Christians choose religion as we can’t bear the thought of extinction, while they have the courage to face it. in fact, the belief that there is no afterlife, and so no final accountability, is a great comfort to many. C S Lewis wrote about this great falsehood in his spiritual autobiography ‘Surprised by Joy’ in which he spoke of his love for atheism since it relieved him of any accountability, and freed him to live as he chose, and to end his life if it became uncomfortable. He described the idea of a man’s search for God as being like ‘The mouse’s search for the cat.’
There are 3 things that atheists get very upset about in my experience
- The suggestion that they have beliefs, for example that there is no God or spirit, that materialism is a finding of science rather than a faith position , or that they are selective in what evidence they consider-and refuse to consider.
- The suggestion that without God, there is no objective source of moral law
- Hearing hard scientific evidence against molecules to man evolution by blind chance.
Not wishing to cause offense, but being passionate for Truth, I wrote a book of essays dealing with these and other incorrect propositions. Three Men in a Hut and other Essays is available as a Kindle download. Almost nobody has read it, and like me its imperfect, but I had to clear my conscience by lifting a sword against this spider’s web of lies we live in, until the returning Christ comes to sweep them away. He is coming, to reward some and hold others to account.
One life, then judgment. It is and will be what it is, regardless of the vain imaginings of men and women who think they can alter reality with their personal preferences and who claim there is no evidence for God, Christ and Judgment when in fact there is plenty of evidence, evidence they have chosen to refuse.
Well, just watch this tragic video and see for yourselves. She tries to make her points by looking pretty, extravagant body language, speaking over others and shouting ‘I literally disagree with you’ as if that was some kind of argument. She says the latest London murders and maimings, carried out by a Muslim who had been radicalised in prison and owned by the Islamic State terror organisation were ‘nothing to do with Islam.’ When challenged by atheist Bill Maher to name any Christian armies killing people in the name of Jesus, she cites the IRA, the Irish Republican Army.
IRA a Christian organisation? There is a bit of a clue in their name. This very nasty murder and extortion organisation (thankfully on a long truce at present) who fought for an Irish Republic are first and foremost nationalists and socialists. They had links with many global revolutionary organisations including Gaddafi, violent Columbian revolutionaries and the PLO.
Yes, their main support base was in the Roman Catholic community, but the idea that they were in any way inspired by the teaching and example of Jesus, in the way that avowed Muslim terror organisations like ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Shabbab, Al Nusra, Al Quaeda etc are inspired by the teaching and example of Muhammad would be laughable if it wasn’t actually being said on MSM by a woman who UNTIL RECENTLY WAS A BRITISH MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT. This is how low the standard of public debate has fallen. This is how dangerously ignorant our ruling class is. This is, amongst other reasons, why the West is doomed. This is why I wrote Darwin’s Adders.
Martin Guinness, Marxist revolutionary and mass murderer turned politician, has gone to his appointed place.
It made me sick yesterday to hear Peter Hain, amongst others, on Radio 4 describing McGuinness as ‘a man of peace’ who somehow ended the ‘war’ in Northern Ireland. A war he and a few others like him started, and continued with malice, hate and hypocrisy (for example demanding due process and special treatment for Republican prisoners while mercilessly torturing and killing others at will). A bit like calling a man a women’s rights hero for giving up violent rape when he got bored of it. Many commentators have suggested the IRA only gave up murder when they were losing, and did a deal with the evil liar and dupe Tony Blair (who to be fair to the IRA, was responsible for many more deaths that they were and is equally unapologetic).
But has he, as one of his victims Normal Tebbit amongst others have hoped, gone to Hell? There is no point me saying that I hope McGuinness repented of the many murders, maimings, torturings, bombings and deliberate destruction of the economy (*) and turned to Christ for forgiveness. We know from the Bible e.g. Luke 23:39-42) than even the most wicked of men can find grace, if they ask for it. But whatever my feelings, there is no point my expressing any views on McGuiness’ eternal destiny. It is what it is and ever more shall be so, where the tree has fallen it will lie.
But is there a Hell for the finally impenitent? Jesus says yes. It is now too late for Martin McGuinness, murderer and thief, to change his destiny. If you are reading this, it’s not too late for you. Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord Jesus will be saved. Romans 10:13. I should if I were you, I already have.
(*) A classic Marxist revolutionary tactic-destroy employment prospects, investment and tourism by sabotage, extortion and bombing, blame the government for the consequent economic hardship, then recruit operatives from the ranks of the unemployed.
This dripped into my Facebook feed.
Sorry to say that much as I still loathe and fear Trump, the sight and sound of the people he is offending the most, and the hysterical things they are saying against him (as if Hillary was Jesus Christ and he was Satan) is making me warm to him.
Apologies for the vulgarity, but calling someone a ‘fucking wanker’ is very poor English as well as poor logic. And since when did having a small penis (if that’s even true) constitute an argument? The young people in the video, who have apparently been smoking some rather strong cigarettes, use witchcraft style incantations to curse Trump and all the millions who voted for him, in the name of liberty and justice.
Liberals, lefties, one worlders and dope smokers so totally don’t get why millions of fairly mild mannered, decent folks who feel their liberties are under threat from big government, intolerant leftist and mass immigration voted for this unpleasant man.
Trump is also being called anti semitic, when in fact the anti semitism is coming from the secularist Left and from Muslims. Trump in fact is far more pro-Israel than his predecessors as evidenced by his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Basic and obvious errors of fact like this do no favours to his opponents’ credibility.
I did not want to have to say this, but the unreasoning and hate of the anti Trumpists are driving me towards seeing this awful man as some kind of necessary corrective.
‘Radical inclusion’ my fat hairy arse.
There is no polite way of saying this, but the homoenablers are offering the C of E a cup of poison.
It would be suicide to accept it. Or perhaps mercy killing?
The long running story of the C of E’s misbegotten and futile attempt to pacify the homosexualist lobby grinds (or should that be GRINDRs) on. Am I the only person in the country who is bored to tears but who can also see that to give in to the sexual revolutionaries and crybabies (Ooh! UMM! That’s not very CHRISTIAN… what about LOVE!) would be disastrous. Because they and their friends will never stop until they get what they want, which is basically everything. See earlier post ‘Big Gay will never give up until you give them what they want-your mind).
Now what it comes down to is, briefly, this
- The Bible unequivocally forbids homosexual activity. Anyone who claims that this is in serious doubt is a liar, a fool or both. I have only one thing to say to them-read the Bible and come clean as to whether it is or is not your rule of faith, and act accordingly.
- The Church (Roman, Episcopalian, Lutheran, Calvinist, Wesleyan etc) with the exception of a few fringe sects has always and in all places upheld this teaching, until very recently.
- Very recently, only in the last few decades, various sections of the visible church has given way to the spirit of our dangerously over-sexualised age, and a few professing Christian thinkers, writers and leaders have decided to ‘think again’ about man on man and woman on woman sex. After all, since fornication, adultery and abortion have been all but normalised, where else is there to go? PS all these people abandoned Biblical Creation a long time ago, which explains a lot.
- God fearing believers have listened, thought, gone back to the Scriptures, and found (as if there was any doubt) that sex is still between one man and one woman in faithful lifelong marriage, with reluctant and minimal concessions for the innocent party in divorce.
- and the Christians who have decided to choose Scripture and tradition rather than go with the spirit of this adulterous age are being vilified to the max.
Good result, if you are the enemy of the Church. This is not a battle any of us wanted to fight, but it is where our enemy is attacking, so we must mount a defence or lose by default. The world will of course call Bible Christians all kinds of names-but should we be surprised? No. They want it all, on their terms, and will never be happy until everyone else gives up THEIR rights to please them. Nothing would surprise me less than to discover that many atheist infiltrators are pretending to be ‘gay Christians’.
This isn’t about ‘equality’ this is about destroying the Church of England as a functioning entity. There is plenty of precedent, the homoenabling Episcopalian bishop John Shelby Spong (who also denies the bodily resurrection of Christ and the coming Judgment) oversaw a catastrophic decline in church membership when he ran the show in Newark.
Peter Saunders to whose blog this blog links, has nailed it. The only viable answer now is division. The crybaby bishops whine that the voice of the ‘church queerers’ was not listened to. Bollocks. It was listened to, and more than it should have been, but they were wrong on the facts and they did not get what they asked for, so they cry foul. They are open about their goal to ‘queer the church.’
If the C of E is to maintain any semblance of faithfulness to Scripture and tradition, it must simply say ‘No’. The mistake was to have entered into this futile ‘conversation’ 3 years ago. It is a miserable truth that the real Church has always had to struggle against heresy, read the Acts of the Apostles and Epistles. I hate it, but there it is. We don’t get to choose which particular heresies our enemy will use at any given point in history. C S Lewis wrote brilliantly about this in The Screwtape Letters. Our job is to identify and resist them, in love but without compromise, as the Apostle Jude wrote with much passion. Jude wanted to write about something more elevated, but felt the need to write a letter of warning instead.
If the sexual revolutionaries want to have a religion which embraces the LGBTQ agenda, let them have one. But they aren’t allowed to call it Christianity. There is already a religion called Christianity, and it is incompatible with homosexual practice. There is no UK law against these people having an ‘inclusive’ church of their own. Such ‘churches’ already exist. Why aren’t they happy with this? Because they must have all their own way. Any neutrals might want to reflect on why this tiny minority, who proclaim equality and diversity as the highest values, are insistent on everyone else abandoning their strongly held position and adopting theirs.
Believers will have to choose whether to accept rejection by this sex obsessed, liberal left, emotionally driven society, or to reject the Word of God. Either way, there are consequences.
Not all division is bad, some is inevitable. It is better to be on the right side of a division, even a bitter one, that to be united in error.Jesus said as much, as did other prophets from Moses to Malachi. and as for ‘tolerance’ try reading the words of the risen and ascended Christ in Revelation 2:20-21, where He severely rebukes a church for ‘…tolerating that witch Jezebel’ for leading people into sexual sin. No, read it. Don’t argue with me, argue with Jesus. I won’t be your Judge, He will. let’s say it again, God is intolerant of sin, including (but not limited to) sexual sin. And PLEASE enough already of the ‘I would become a Christian if they weren’t HOMOPHOBIC!!!!’. No, you wouldn’t, if you say that you’re a liar.
All it takes to have a division is a lie, and one or more people who will not stand for it. It is no fun being called a hater and a bigot. Satan knows that. He is not a gentleman, but he is a master of strategy.
Matthew 5:11 “God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers.”
The Christians who are willing to endure insult rather than concede this church-killing heresy did not choose this battle, but dare not refuse it. If the C of E wants to survive as something other than The Guardian and BBC at prayer, a safe space for liberals and heretics, it has some hard decisions to make. I predicted 3 years ago, the process set off by the Pilling Report would end badly. I quit, and am glad to be in membership of a church albeit (like me) imperfect, but
whose head-Christ- and whose rule of faith- His Word- are not in doubt.
