The God Question in politics again, it hits the news again! 2012 has become a year that our Christian faith has been brought to the centre of many debates on many issues, it is certainly causing conversations and comments. It’s not the church that has achieved this directly but the Prime Minister and the Queen. The Guardian wrote “At an Easter reception in Downing Street, David Cameron ventured where even Tony Blair feared to tread, quoting from the Gospel of Luke, speaking of ‘we Christians’, and welcoming the Christian ‘fightback’. ‘The values of the Bible, the values of Christianity, are the values that we need’, he said. In your view, is it acceptable for a modern prime minister to espouse Christian values so openly?”
Ok consider for your self, with David Cameron’s own words, what will resound into in our world, if declarations has any authority, the supernatural realm has certainly had many words from the Queen’s speech at Christmas, Cameron’s words at the celebration of 400 years of King James Bible, now more words from David Cameron. We will all wonder what did the UK Prime Minister mean by this or that, what ever he has meant by these words he certainly has spoken of a regaining of Christianity at the forefront of the UK.
Are these just words or a contributing to a preparing Revival bringing about a season of Restoration (Acts 3:19-21)? Bringing Christ to the forefront of people’s minds in a country that is economically challenged , challenges on National identity what does it mean to be British, social challenges, young feeling isolated and more disenfranchised, education being undermined by budgets and Christ, faith being put right into the middle of it all. An appeal for a Christ faith to take place in the ‘Big Society‘, perhaps to be the lead, of a community of faith, a community of restoration, a community of recovery in the UK making a difference because of our Christ.
My next post will be David Cameron’s words read and consider your self
