This news report serves to highlight the dominance of evil at the heart of our nation.
It has to be conceded that the nation is under the control of what I believe is still a minority and which embraces a lifestyle that is obnoxious to a majority of people yet, because of the threat that this minority poses to the political parties, they bow in fear before it!
This is illustrated in this article. The Conservative government hastily performs an ‘about face’ because of the outcry the ‘pro-sodomy lobby’ at the announcement that Prime Minister, Boris Johnston, was going to abandon plans to introduce a ban on ‘conversion therapy’!
I am no fan of ‘conversion therapy’, being convinced that only the grace of God can deliver a person from the practice of any sin, and the wickedness of sodomy and its related perversions in particular.
Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 teach us that.
“ Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”
The reported comments by some MPs, indicates the darkness that has descended upon the nation that by God’s grace, gave the world the Authorised Version of the Holy Scriptures!
The actions of a misguided, satanic-inspired ‘minority’ can work great evil. Just as a minority in the Jewish nation made a decision for the whole nation and brought God’s judgment down upon it, so the same is taking place in the United Kingdom. The Bible reveals to us the same directing of the minds of the majority. “But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews? For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy. But the chief priests moved (stirred, shake up) the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them. And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews? And they cried out again, Crucify him,” Mark 15:9-13.
As with the Jewish nation and its rejection of the Lord Jesus Christ, so a vociferous minority is directing an indifferent and spiritually blind and apathetic United Kingdom downwards to a Christ rejector’s Hell.
And THAT is one of the signs of the approach of the final days of this age and the return of the Saviour in power and great glory.
“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed,” Luke 17:28-30.
Christian, it is our duty in these days to watch, pray and warn!
Sincerely in Christ Jesus,

ITV News UK Editor Paul Brand reports on the whiplash at the heart of government, as it backpedals on its decision to ditch conversion therapy Boris Johnson has been forced to stage a hasty U-turn after an announcement that ministers were abandoning plans to ban conversion therapy sparked a furious backlash.
Earlier on Thursday, ITV News UK Editor Paul Brand revealed a leaked government document that showed government proposals to scrap a promise to ban conversion therapy.
But negative reaction from Conservative MPs and ministers has made the prime minister reconsider the decision, a senior government source told ITV News.
However the new plans will only apply to gay – and not trans – conversion therapy, ITV News understands.
One Conservative MP told Paul Brand: “I sent the PM a message directly saying I was ashamed. And lots of other colleagues have too.” The official briefing note, ITV News exclusively revealed, said that the prime minister had decided not to outlaw the practice, despite repeated promises by Boris Johnson and his predecessor Theresa May that it would be banned.
Conversion therapy attempts to change or suppress someone’s sexuality or gender identity and is already outlawed in several other countries.
But the Downing Street document seen by ITV News read: “The PM has agreed we should not move forward with legislation to ban LGBT conversion therapy.” The document said that the war in Ukraine, and the cost of living crisis, could be given as reasons why the government could no longer go ahead with its plan to ban conversion therapy.
The note also said it accepted there would be a “noisy backlash from LGBT groups”.
Following the ITV News revelations, a number of Conservative MPs spoke out against plans to scrap the ban on conversion therapy.
Conservative MP Alicia Kearns, who has called for a ban on conversion therapy, told ITV News “people will lose lives” if the government goes ahead with the U-turn.
Dehenna Davison – who is the first female Conservative MP to publicly come out as bisexual – said called on the government to immediately reverse its decision.
“As well as breaking an explicit promise, this is a matter of basic decency”, she said on Twitter. “Being gay is not something that needs curing”, she added.
