Our Faithful Queen800Re: 'She is an unashamed, committed Christian and her faith is worth celebrating'
We've bought 150 copies of this & are giving them away in community, along with a commemorative New Testament, "the most precious gift the world can afford". A faith, and a faithful queen, worth celebrating!??

No thanks, how many Ukrainian refugees has she housed in her many castles and palaces?

Black white800Re: Child Q and Institutional Racism

I read with much sadness of the treatment of Child X. Such treatment has become almost the norm in this day and age and is all but accepted. There is a great lack of God in this so called modern age. An age in which the world lays claim to having moved forward, a much improved society. The truth being quite the opposite. God is forgotten and dismissed by so many others.

The way the world behaves reflects this and the example of Child X is a prime example. Yes, Black Lives Matter, but the real slogan should be that, 'All Lives Matter!'

The sad truth behind the organisation 'Black Lives Matter,' is that they are a de-authorization group. They want to remove all authority, including the disbanding of local law and order. They are using 'Black Lives Matter,' as a means to hide behind to further their cause.

'Black Lives, All lives Matter,' is something that should be supported. But the organisation 'Black Lives Matter,' is anti-government, anti-law and is ultimately seeking to destabilise society, Black Lives Matter,' is nothing more to them than a rally point behind which to march and create havoc.

It's cause however is not the organisations real agenda. The cause if it was the actual agenda would have a great cause to support, but the organisations and it's actual agenda is to be shunned. It is not to be supported.

As Christians we should be looking solely to God and seeking His guidance in all things. We should be weary of those we support and we should be declaring that all lives are created equal by the hand of God. All lives matter, not just black, white, brown, pink, yellow because God chose to paint each of us in different colours.

It is only man who distinguishes any difference between one and another. God came to save sinners, not to judge. The Church should therefore be proclaiming the 'Word of God,' not getting involved in 'Politics' or such like. God has sent us forth to proclaim the Gospel and that is what we should be doing to His glory. Yes, decry all evil, but forget not; that 'God is In Control,' not us!

Let us concentrate on that which God has commanded us, to proclaim His name to all. 'Seek and ye shall Find!' If you seek not, how do you expect to find anything, let alone God?'
