There is a curious similarity to all the political parties’ agendas for our children’s future
Readers of the online magazine Prophecy Today UK will know that I published a small comparative study of what was said on social issues in the Election Manifestos of the three main parties. They were remarkably similar on all of the following:
- Extending sex education to all children
- Promoting LGBT+ lifestyles
- Tackling hate crime
- Enforcing and strengthening equalities law
- Promoting humanist values worldwide
Here are a few quotes:
There is still time for parents and grandparents to contact MPs warning them that unless they act responsibly a timebomb of corruption will be exploding among our children
Older readers may remember the early 1980s when video cassettes came onto the market and rapidly became essential viewing in most households. Very soon the films available on cassette included scenes of violence and pornography.
A Bill was introduced into the House of Commons in 1983 to limit the films that could be seen by children, which began a controversy on whether children actually saw these films, and if so, were they harmed?

What has happened to all the predictions of doom and gloom that we heard before the referendum?
Before the Brexit vote, we were told that if Britain voted to leave the European Union the pound would go into freefall, the stock market would go wild, house prices would collapse and the economy would never recover.
But what has happened to David Cameron and George Osborne and the others who tried to keep us locked into an unholy marriage with the godless European Union?
Every day seems to bring some fresh gut-wrenching atrocity or bad news story that fills us with foreboding for the future
The rate of change has never been greater. Yesterday’s news is rapidly overtaken by today’s. From every part of the world there come reports of violence and unrest. Reading a newspaper or watching the television news today should have a health warning for those of a nervous disposition.
Can a nation be reborn?
Matt Redman performing in Winchester Cathedral to thousands of young people? A bishop standing in the water like John the Baptist and baptising by full immersion – in an Anglican cathedral?
If anyone thought that Christianity was dying in the traditional churches of Britain – what happened in Winchester Cathedral this Pentecost would have shattered their illusions!
When was the first national referendum in recorded history? The answer is in Deuteronomy 30 where Moses had in front of him the whole nation of Israel. He knew he was near the end of his life and he called them to make a choice that would have a lasting effect upon the future of the nation. This was the choice he presented: “See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.”
A similar choice is being offered to the British people today but it is being obscured by a multiplicity of opinion and a paucity of facts. There is grave danger of voter fatigue overtaking the referendum campaign. We are on overload with the opinions of politicians, bankers and big business moguls bombarding us with their versions of ‘facts and figures’. The Government is increasingly desperate to persuade us to stay in the EU with scare stories about unemployment, recession, house prices collapsing, food prices rising and other stories of doom and gloom.
There IS a better way to ensure our nation’s future blessing and prosperity
Politians, bankers, big businessmen and journalists have all been making their pronouncements about whether we should leave the European Union or stay in it.
They all give their opinions on whether we will be richer or poorer, safer or at risk. Do we need the EU as trading partners or will we be better off independently trading in world markets? But I’ve yet to hear any leader in church or state calling the nation to seek the guidance of God for the future wellbeing and prosperity of Britain.
