Today is the day that our government is set on redefining marriage. Even though David Cameron announced in his pre-election mandate that he had no intention of doing so, peer pressure and a longing to modernise the Conservative party has forced him to change his mind.

Let’s not forget who is shaping the thoughts of our government. The enemy of our souls wants to re-shape everything about our society, he wants to rob children of fathers, steal innocence from our little ones and intrinsically remove God from every facet of our lives.

Our enemy lacks creativity however, the Christian with scales removed from their eyes can see all-too-clearly what is going on. We have discernment, a gift from God that provides insight into the consequences of decisions made by everyone around us – including our government.

Even false religions or no ‘religions’ are just a re-shaping and fragmenting of what our God is and has ordained. Commitment comes from God, the world wants commitment [in same-sex marriage] but without the boundaries decreed by an awesome Creator… However it doesn’t want commitment that forces men and women to work at relationships that involve some degree of humility…

I heard of a book that has just been released called ‘Religion for Atheists! The author, a self-confessed atheist wants all the benefits of a Christian society but without the Christ.

Today, our government will hear the voices of many politicians and lobbyists voice their concerns about the redefining of marriage and they will close their ears. Their consciences are seared as they continue in their fallen state, wanting morality but wanting all of this without Him. It’s impossible. It’s a lie. It’s part of the great deception that the bible talks about.

I am praying this morning that it will not go ahead but I fear that we are going to be brought to our knees as a nation. We have been complacent and fearful for far too long.

I confess that I am not as bold as I should be, but I do want the Lord Jesus to be glorified in our nation. I want men, women and children to enjoy all the benefits of Christianity that come from a relationship with God. May He have mercy on our nation…

Shine brightly, win souls
