Churches Would Be More Popular If….

People want what they believe religion has to to offer, they just do not want God to be a part of it.  One would think that the fact God should and does have a pivotal role in our future would be self-evident, but apparently it is not (Luke 19:14, 27).

Cathedrals are doing better than churches because they don’t “bang on” about God, Sir Simon Jenkins has suggested.

The author, who was discussing his new book on England’s churches at the Hay Festival, said cathedrals were responding to the public’s desire for a more spiritual and less religious experience.

Sir Simon highlighted the importance of the services they offered, saying: “Music is very important, evensong is the most popular service, people go for the music.

They (cathedrals) don’t feel obliged to be religious. I think the churches, particularly cathedrals, are responding to people’s desire for something that they might call spiritual. They are meditative, they are buildings where people find peace. They find peace in the music and the spirit.”

Educational Disinformation

There has been an assault on God and the His way since the first man and it will continue as long as Satan has his way and man gives into it.  There are few places that this can be better seen than our school system.  As long as mankind continues to look to places other than the Bible for true understanding, he will continue to be misled to his own demise.

Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

It should be clear to all reasoning people with the ability for critical thinking that a pattern of cultural warfare has been unfolding against the Western world since at least the end of World War Two. The contrast between what was then and what is now is stark and frightening. It should serve as all the evidence we require to make the final determination about what has been happening.

The complete destruction of the traditional family unit has taken place through a process of indirect and direct attacks against the proven characteristics of Western civilization. It should be obvious that media and art have orchestrated a well-thought out strategy of cultural warfare against the masculine and feminine ideals and support columns of culture.

Our educational buildings and curriculums have been used to erode and shatter all the ideals of natural and instinctual existence which have developed within the Western mind. The more we remember and rediscover, the more we realize that almost everything which is taught in our schools is either a corrupt twisted version of truth, or is an outright lie and fabrication.

If our curriculums were based on truth they would not need the constant changing and tweaking which takes takes place.

It’s interesting that more and more students are coming out of the university system and understanding that they in fact understand nothing.

Test Predicts Which Children Will Grow Up to be Drain on Society

Once again we see that the cause for ills in the world and the downward slide of society can be avoided by simple yet profound truths in the ancient texts of the Word of God (Proverbs 22:6).

A simple test at the age of three can determine whether children will grow up to be a burden on society, needing excessive welfare, ending up in jail or becoming obese.

Scientists at King’s College London followed more than 1,000 children from before school until they were 38, to find out if it was possible to predict who would go on to lead troubled lives.

All were given a 45 minute test aged three to gauge … their levels of tolerance, restlessness, impulsivity and social disadvantage.

After 35 years, the researchers found one fifth of the group was responsible for 81 per cent of the criminal convictions; three quarters of drug prescriptions; two thirds of welfare benefit payments and more than half of nights in hospital.

But crucially, they discovered that the outcome could have been predicted decades earlier, simply by looking at which children attained the lowest test scores aged three.

You get the best bang for the buck with early intervention,” she said. “These are all traits that can be controlled and improved upon, so identifying them in young children is a gift, and all of society would benefit.

Prof Moffitt added: “This study really gives a pretty clear picture of what happens if you don’t intervene.”

London Bridge Terror: Up to 23,000 Jihadis in UK

Even if this is not completely accurate, we have recently seen how devastating only a few highly motivated terrorists can be.  This is a result of moving away from God and not relying upon Him (Psalm 33:12-20).

The figure is more than six times the figure previously released by the Home Office at the time of last month’s Manchester bombing.

Then, it was revealed the security services had 500 live investigations into more than 3,000 suspected radical jihadis, including about 400 people who have remarkably been allowed to return to our shores after fighting with terror group Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria.

But, it has since emerged a further 20,000 radical Islamists have been considered a “person of interest” to the security services at anyone time, according to a security services source.

But, the news has led to fears there are simply not enough resources for our security forces and counter terror police to monitor all their activities at anyone time.

But round-the-clock monitoring of terror suspects is only possible in a handful of cases due to limited resources….

EU Sees Need to Fill NATO Deficit

These calls for a European military are becoming more frequent and it will rapidly develop into and become the most powerful and devastating armed force in the world (See our prior video which echoes this article).

The EU budget should be used for military research and the bloc could become a defence alliance akin to Nato, the European Commission is poised to say.

The Commission is to outline its ideas in a legislative proposal on spending and in an ideas paper on defence due out on Wednesday (7 June).

Trump caused upset at Nato last week.

“The development of a new generation of many major defence systems is today beyond the reach of a single EU member state … ‘More Europe’ in defence and security is clearly needed”, the draft proposals, seen by Bloomberg, a US news agency, said.

The reflection paper adds that the “nature of the trans-Atlantic relationship is evolving” and that “more than ever, Europeans need to take greater responsibility for their own security”.
