Figures as Cromwell, the British Puritans, or William Cecil, the firm first minister of queen Elizabeth I guarding the country against the anti reformation forces of the day battering England -e.g.Spanish Armada etc... -, have been systematicly maligned.
Of course Anglicans resent Cromwell to this day, as he dismantled their episcopacy and bishop-base church government, and this has never been forgotten or forgiven.
Yet sadly, to get rid of Cromwell's commonwealth the Anglican party was bitterly willing to support the restoration of the distrusted Stuarts, in the person of the immoral, jolly-pleasure seeking, irresponsible and ungodly figure of Charles II who led the country towards libertarian life styles and a frivolous mind set, driving the populous to ridiculase and openly abhor the firmily established image of the British Puritan.
Yet, there are history books about that manage to narrate the turmoil of this period without mentioning the word Bible or Protestant !!

The Quiet Christian wrote: The destruction of Southern heritage and history because it is inconvenient and non-politically correct is just the starting point. It's an easy one to take on. The South held slaves, after all. Don't bother to note that the North did too and that the Compromise of 1850 proposed by a Yankee was a travesty of justice. Let's not forget how many times New England threatened to secceed from the Union prior to those unfortunate unpleasantries of the 1860s. Don't think they aren't coming for the rest of history. History is often inconvenient. It shows our best and our worst. If we look at the history of the nation that came from Jacob/Israel, we see much of the same. There are real heroes. There are real scoundrels...
The war between the states was staged, the same as the riots, and 'racism' ... in order to advance certain agendas. Do you want to stir up Americans easily? Bring up these topics and you will divide and in dividing distract, and win.

The Biblical Blueprint' C J Williams https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/303101496184 A book written probably two decades ago which Biblically nails the present and quotes much from 1984! Hard to find, but a copy on eBay. A MUST READ for Chris and sis McCausland, you won't be able to put it down as it is most covincing and convicting. Author would be reformed, book was well received at the time. Book is easy to read. Read it if you haven't already, then you'll want to pass it on.
Thanks Mr. C J Williams had an old pamphlet published on those same lines. Wondering if this is the same with a new title or if it is a different work.
Chrisgp from England wrote: ... a whitewashing of history, and putting politically incorrect things down the â€śmemory holeâ€ť, in the so called Ministry of Truth, (I.e. the Propaganda Ministry), in George Orwellâ€™s 1984. ... Bristol, ... the City Council surreptitiously put bin bags on a statue of a benefactor of the City of Bristol, when it was a famous port in the 17th to early 18th century, Edward Colston, who unfortunately also traded in slaves. He set up many charitable works, and the local concert hall was named after him,(now it has been renamed by politically correct administrators). The statue has been there since 1895. The city council, I think wanted to bypass the normal democratic process for the statueâ€™s removal, though some people had sent a petition asking for it, so it seems that not many police were around when a lawless mob showed up, toppled it, one of them knelt in the neck of the statue in the same way George Floyd was killed, and then they threw it into the harbour. This is not the way that things should be done in a democratic country. If we removed everything we didnâ€™t like, we would have to delete most if our kings and historical figures!!
Thanks. Rewriting history includes taking down palpable evidences.

Yea and nay wrote: I agree that negatively we are to come out from among them: Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,Â And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.Â However before they are given this instruction Paul states: ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged. Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own bowels.Â Now for a recompense in the same, ... be ye also enlarged.Â If sins of omission are the precursor to sin of commission, then it seems to me the root problem for those a ways out from the apostolic over site, is agreement among those in a teaching capacity with the apostolic prescription. Calvin stressed the worship of God is even more important then doctrine. There would be a need then for a uniformity of worship in the visible church, in any nation as a preservative. It seems to be the best starting place so sheep are not lured into the confusion that results from error. These differences make them more vulnerable to strong delusion.

This should be an obvious indicator for the true child of God of the tenant of darkness our present world system is in. Yet many hold to the apparent Christian veneer of Western governments as the thing to cling on.
It should be enough to tell the true Christian to disengage from of it all. But while the 'evangelicals/reformed' remain dependant on it, following it to the point of the letter of the law, they will get more and more sucked into the whirlwind of deception.
Being subservient towards the media has brought the church to the useless and helpless state it is, and if not changed, it will continue on to its utter destruction.
'Come out from among them' applies to media and entertainment also. The church has ignored it for 90 years, especially since 1933. The confusion is become of appalling magnitude, as the ignoring of this piece of news exhibits.
