5 Reasons Remain Voters shouldn't Slit their Wrists

Crap...It's Independence Day

So, you’ve campaigned hard. You’ve put memes on Facebook that have caused some to unfriend you. You’ve tried to persuade others about the dangers of a Brexit – but you woke up this morning to see you lost. Here are five reasons not to end it all:

  1. England has always had an anti-European streak. Be this decision smart or stupid – we’re being true to our historic selves.
  2. We’ve seen the exciting movies about a Zombie Apocalypse. Now we get to see the real thing, free of charge.
  3. Today the Hollywood film ‘Independence Day 2’ is out. Now you have an even greater excuse to nip to the cinemas. 
    'Well done Britain, Baby!'
  4. Donald Trump thinks we’ve done the right thing. What more could we want than to go up in his books?
  5. If you’re a Christian, neither England nor Europe are your home. You’re living for an everlasting Kingdom. The EU, the UK and other nations would fail one day. In the scale of eternity, this will mater less than we assume it will

    Apologies never got to the 'Pastor' piece and commented back but was without any screaming errors, as far as read/when/me-though. (Still not again/on list).

    Mutual voluntary, choose-to heed, intentional community – is surely fine. Albeit first among equals in leadership – 'leader'. Therefore obey those in love with, unless God asks you to leave this covenant. So marriage is mutual obey one another. No leaving on this basis. The 'shepherding movement' caused a whopping over-reaction against. But the whole idea of co-dependency church, “you need to cover me/look after me…?” – exceptional circumstances aside, where's this in the N.T. Or much talk of leadership at all?

    As for the Brexit made a couple of short comments, one here and up: http://21stcenturywire.com/2016/06/24/the-fuddy-duddies-have-it-cameron-resigns-following-brexit-vote/#disqus_thread

    I recognise the progressive evangelical 'vote' was solid Remain. Comes from a number of reasons – I believe – mostly about 'progressing' as an evangelical. You have a very small p about you and a – to use the word you do – 'streak' of pentecostal pioneer about you (like that/a lot).

    1. Yes, something of history. Or is it more God-embedded about lands and homelands?

    2. 'Zombie Apocalypse' is an acclimatising, centrally driven, deeply religious, purposeful, revelation (of method…) That unless we pray and overcome..? Sheer mind-control. Genetics/engineering/eugenics – all rolling out. Unless we…

    3. If I did movies (anymore) – would agree.

    4. DT's and interesting one. Bit like Brixit (if we do + might be) potential for blessing. Man has to stand. Tall call. Like Brexit(?) DT is being – my discernment – used as judgement on the nations. IF – he doesn't so-compromise, which of course would cause him to have to miraculously survive assassination attempts. (Only a God can directly stop this, I reckon).

    5. 'In the scale of eternity, this will mater less than we assume it will'. Yes and no. Paul said 'Rather… But…' And to God it really, really, matters.

    Five fine provokers though. Bold on.

Dear Pro-Gay Christian Friend

[Response to the letter Dear Non-Affirming Christian]
Dear Pro-Gay Christian Friend,
Thank you for taking the time to write me. Sadly, it seems you misunderstand why I met with you for coffee. Please let me explain my motives by defining the words in my salutation above. Would this be too terrible a way to go about it?
Let’s start with ‘friend’ shall we? You rightly question this term as an accurate description of our relationship. For now, let's simply say I mean it as an expression of good will - but will return to it again at the end of the letter. Then there's this term, 'pro-gay'. By this, I don't mean your personal sexual urges. There have historically been – and are today – countless godly leaders in the church who have deep sexual and romantic attractions to people of the same gender. In spite of their desires, they remain celibate and teach orthodox views of gender and sexuality. In your letter, you repeatedly refer to me as a ‘non-affirming Christian’, but I …

Jezebel: Our Whorable Queen

[Extract from the bookElijah Men Eat Meat]

Ahab married Jezebel, then he proceeded to worship Baal.’ -1Kg 16
Queen Jezebel is a Baal-snogging, fake-teaching, boob-flaunting, pride-marching, man-manipulating, Yahweh-blaspheming, prophets’ blood-drinking monstrosity of a female.
And that’s being nice.
This daughter of Ethbaal, the Phoenician King, grows up surrounded by power, education, luxury, and evil. Of course, she doesn’t think of it as evil. No one sees their culture’s sins for what they are. It is like air to a child or water to a fish: it’s so much a part of us that we don’t even know it is there. She thinks her culture is the rule by which others should be measured. Yes, Israel is used to being surrounded by pagan neighbours and their debauched royalty. But now we have a problem. The problem is that this ghoulish gal now has a throne in the midst of God’s holy nation. It’s one thing for a boat to be in the sea. It’s quite another thing for the sea to be in the boat. And the nati…

Driscoll Returns, ‘Christian Today’ Melts.

Sometimes in the course of events, a peculiar thing happens that then triggers a response more peculiar still. This is what we now see with the return of Pastor Mark Driscoll to the church scene.
For those unfamiliar with the drama, Mark Driscoll was a church planter and Bible teacher who made a big impact in the least churched city in the USA: Seattle. Thousands professed faith in Christ through his ministry. But he left the church that he had started under dark circumstances. No, it wasn’t adultery as is so often the case with some of these big-name preachers. Rather, it was heavy-handed leadership―resulting in many spiritually crushed church members―that drove him to resign.
Now, three years later, he is leading a new church and many are downloading his sermons once again. This is not without some valid controversy―for reasons we’ll mention soon. But what is most noticeable is not his peculiar return. It is the reaction among those who lean left of classical Christian teaching: the …
