The Word:  Justice is turned back, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. So truth fails, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. (Isaiah 59:14-15) 
 

The Word:  “At that time,” declares the Lord, “I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they will be my people.” This is what the Lord says… The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. I will build you up again, and you, virgin Israel, will be rebuilt. Again you will take up your timbrels and go out to dance with the joyful. Again you will plant vineyards on the hills of Samaria; the farmers will plant them and enjoy their fruit.” (Jeremiah 31:1-5)

5 year olds in Wales are to be taught about LGBTQ ‘rights’ under the deceivingly benign title of ‘Relationships and Sexuality Education’

“As the tsunami of liberalism sweeps through our society, sex has become a catalyst for the destruction of all that is seen as irrelevant in modern Britain – faith, morality, family and the exclusivity of a sexual relationship for which marriage is designed.” Gill Robins,Christians in Education  

There is a ‘fifth column’ in our midst, encouraged by ‘the powers that be’ . Wilfred Wong urges Christians to wake up – before it is too late…

Islamic extremists are using mass Muslim migration to the West to infiltrate Europe in large numbers. Jihadist groups have publicly stated that they would do this. Thus, mass Muslim migration increases the likelihood of Islamic terrorist strikes against the host country. It also escalates the process of Islamisation in that nation and provides an ever-growing pool of potential recruits in the host country for Islamic terror groups to recruit.   

Allowing mass Muslim migration into one’s country amounts to national and cultural Suicide. Unfortunately, many of our politicians especially those on the Left, are keen to encourage mass Muslim migration to Britain. The Socialist parties such as Labour and the Liberal Democrats view the Muslims as their natural electoral supporter base and thus have a selfish vested interest in bringing more Muslim migrants into Britain. 

Constantine used ‘religious freedom’  to advance his empire. Are today’s politicians making the same fatal error?

The UK is reaping the fallout from the referendum and the General Election. Watchman reports on machinations in the corridors of power

In the wake of the Conservative Party’s poor performance in June’s General Election – resulting in a hung Parliament – Theresa May’s position as Prime Minister has been significantly weakened. The Times reported on June 12 that she “faced overwhelming pressure to soften her stance on Brexit.”

The Times reported: “Mrs. May must now decide how to handle demands from cabinet ministers, including Mr. Hammond (Philip Hammond), to soften her line on Brexit. They want a looser migration system than Mrs. May had planned, a rethink on leaving the customs union and more flexible approach to the European Court of Justice.”  

Living in a closed communities, an increasing number of women in the UK are being pressured to accept the findings of Sharia Councils and abandon their rights under English Law

The review stated that “no one disputed that Sharia councils engage in practices which are discriminatory to women.”

Answer: this is a subject that has caused probably more trouble in the church than anything and still isn't understood correctly. Here are some, but not all, general guidelines:

A. In the beginning God intended marriage to be permanent (Matt. 19:4-6).

B. Because of the hardness of people's hearts, God instructed Moses to write divorce into the Law(Deut. 24:1; Matt. 19:8,9).
