Christian Institute threatens legal action over Northern Ireland gay marriage law
The Christian Institute is threatening to take legal action against the UK Government over changes to the law on gay marriage in Northern Ireland.
Controversial same-sex legislation is due to come into force in the province in January but the Christian Institute is concerned that the forthcoming changes do not include many of the religious freedom and free speech protections in place in the rest of the UK.
Lawyers acting on behalf of the Christian Institute have written to Northern Ireland Secretary of State Julian Smith threatening legal action to protect religious freedom after the new legislation comes into effect.
The Christian Institute argues that legal protections for freedom of religion, expression and association must be included in the provisions on a part with the rest of the UK....
John MacArthur wrote: Rationality (the right use of sanctified reason through sound logic) is never condemned in Scripture. Faith is not irrational. Authentic biblical truth demands that we employ logic and clear, sensible thinking. Truth can always be analyzed and examined and compared under the bright light of other truth, and it does not melt into absurdity....Christ is truth incarnate, and He cannot deny himself (2 Timothy 2:13). Self-denying truth is an absolute contradiction in terms. â€śNo lie is of the truthâ€ť (1 John 2:21).
Nor is logic a uniquely â€śGreekâ€ť category that is somehow hostile to the Hebrew context of Scripture. (That is a common myth tht is often set forth in support of postmodernismâ€™s flirtation with irrationality.) Scripture frequently employs logical devices, such as antithesis, if-then arguments, syllogisms, and propositions. These are all standard logical forms, and Scripture is full of themâ€”Paulâ€™s long string of deductive arguments inÂ 1 Corinthians 15:12â€“19Â being a great example.
excerpt from, "Rationality Without the Rationalism"
True, Adriel, the is heading nonstop to the Tribulationâť—
The plague of satanic Liberalism spreads unabated.
Satan's assault and removal of all authority continues in the western nations unabated. Ultimately God is the overall supreme authority in creation. Every vestige of Biblical authority is Satan's target. Eradication of church and all references to such. Elimination of all Christian doctrines, morals and ethics yet left to be found in society.
A world dominated by Satan, sin, chaos and depravity is his aim. Reprobates can't see it whereas Christians can and can tell the difference.
Acquiescence to evil such as abortion, the abomination, immorality, adultery, lawlessness, false religion, Liberalism in churches and governments, corruption, porn, dissolute, promiscuity, ...... etc etc.
Proverbs 29:16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall."
Two powers on earth - Serve one and not the other is the fact of life here. Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God,"
Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."
