Prophecy Sign: Christian persecution and marginalization
Don't look now, but as bible believing Christians your beliefs are being purge from the public sphere. Get use to it, because Jesus warned this would happen. Mention that you are a Christian that believes all what the bible has to say, (including those issue that the world does not consider to be sin - eg homosexuality), and watch the hate pour down upon you.
Notice how some "Christians", (and we use that term loosely), get around those "difficult parts of the faith", they simply choose to ignore them or determine that those issue are too complicated to interpret, (eg Tony Blair article below).
If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. John NIV
Liberals Announce Plan to ‘Purge’ Christians
They were always deadly serious about criminalizing Christianity and killing free speech, but now the American left has stopped pretending otherwise. In a recent column titled, “Why Are They Called ‘Homofascists’? Here’s Why,” I wrote that “progressive,” “Christian-hating fascists” – but I repeat myself – are “hell-bent on criminalizing Christianity and pushing to the fringes anyone who publicly acknowledges natural human sexuality and the age-old, immutable institution of legitimate marriage as created by God.”
Cameron’s Description of Britain as ‘Christian Country’ Draws an Angry Response
Prime Minister David Cameron’s effort to describe his own Christian faith at Easter has backfired, with some critics accusing him of fostering “alienation and division” by characterizing
Britain as a
“Christian country.” The fuss over the remarks fit into the debates on national
identity that are going on all over Western Europe, in the face of increasing
immigration, especially from non-Christian societies.
Mr. Cameron wrote an article for a weekly Anglican publication called Church Times, explaining that his own faith is deep, if “a bit vague” on the “more difficult parts of the faith,” and that his attendance in church is “not that regular.” He said he wanted to “infuse politics” with Christian values such as “responsibility, hard work, charity, compassion, humility and love.”
