Popular Australian Broadcasting Corporation TV Show Q & A

One of the most fascinating aspects of this Q & A programme was the tweets that the ABC flashed up on the screen.  In that unique definition of impartiality that the ABC has, all of them were hostile or mocking to Martyn and Christianity. 

The tweets themselves betray an ignorance of Christianity which is quite shocking. I will list them first so that you gauge the extent and nature of the ignorance.

  1. “ACL needs to follow more of Jesus’ style”
  2. “Who decides which souls need to be saved, Martyn?”
  3. “I don’t want my soul to be saved Martyn.  Please keep your beliefs to yourself and stop forcing them on to all of us?”
  4. We need a law giving us freedom from religion in this country. “
  5.  “Actually the Bible says we should ‘love one another as I have loved you’ so  let’s not judge”.
  6. God loves everyone, made in his image. Straight, gay, bi, trans” 

I believe this Q & A clearly shows we are in the days Jesus spoke of as representing the godless society that will precede His return first to take believers to heaven prior to His pouring our His wrath on an unbelieving, unrepentant world.

Although we are all made in the image of God, that image is tainted, distorted, perverted and fallen. We all need to be restored, renewed, reborn and there is only one way that can happen: repentance and acceptance of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. We must die to the old self and be been born again of the Holy Spirit as water baptism so clearly expresses. Only then will we realise that following the Maker’s instructions on all aspects of life not only sex and sexuality is essential for our own good and for the well-being of society. Also, that it is love that compels us to speak as we do.  

WHAT TO DO NEXT AFTER COVID

In the video below Fulton Sheen believes the world and global economy have been forever altered by Covid-19.  Fear, lack of forethought and inaccurate statistics caused people, governments and businesses to overreact and make short sighted decisions with long-term consequences.  How will we move forward when the basic framework for predicting what will happen next, no longer exists?  Close on the heels of Covid and literally overnight, anarchy broke out and all of a sudden American citizens were declared to be racists and our police officers villains. All these things are sure signs that all things are being shaken.  Matthew 24, Luke 21 & Mark 13, all foretold of these events and warned us to be watchful, ready and prepared, we are also encouraged to be men and women who understand the times and know what to do.  The goal of this message is to define what happened, discuss where we are at the moment and what happens next.
