Some may have noticed that where ‘gay marriage’ has already been made legal e.g. Spain, there has been a great deal of confusion and even chaos in their legal system, as many old acts and statutes passed by their parliament and going back many centuries, stand as an obstacle to ‘gay marriage’,
There are numerous stumbling blocks relating to marriage and rights of inheritance, and referring to ‘one woman and one man’ specified in these Spanish laws which were passed at the time with no such impediment in mind and now these must be removed or amended, since they stand in contradiction to the new wickedness now agreed to by their parliament . Each law altered is a sting to conscience…………….
“If that nation I warned repents of its evil—then I will relent and not inflict on it the disaster I had planned” (Jer. 18:8). There is no “if” in connection with what God has foreordained, and the history of nations has been as truly and definitely predestinated, as the destiny of each individual. “Known unto God are all His works from the beginning of the world” (Acts 15:18), and they are known to Him because they were decreed by Him. Now if God decreed an event He either foresaw what would be the outcome of it—or He did not. If He did not, where is His infinite wisdom and understanding? On the other hand, if He foresaw an event would not be—why did He purpose it should be? If God purposed a thing, then either He is able to bring it to pass by His wisdom and power—or He is not. If not, where is His omniscience and omnipotence? From the horns of that dilemma there is no escape. If God be God then there can be no failure with Him “The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the thoughts of His heart to all generations” (Psalm 33:11)……..

For the attention of Mr. Boris Johnson, Mayor of London
Dear Sir, I am informed that you claim marriage is out of date and that it was a stone-age idea. Such remarks just illustrate how out of date you are. Marriage was appointed by our creator God for the benefit of all mankind, and if it is re-defined to permit same sex marriage, it will inevitably result in the further decline of our once favoured nation. The United Kingdom was the most prosperous nation in the world when it maintained the standards and principles given by God in the Bible for the benefit of nations. This was substantiated by some of our past God fearing rulers, including the late Oliver Cromwell and Sir Winston Churchill. We depart from the laws of God at our peril. It is important for us each to remember that we shall have to give an account to that same God in the day of judgment – which is before us all – for the way in which we have discharged the responsibilities He has placed upon us. Please carefully and prayerfully consider the foregoing. D. Crowter Chairman, Christian Watch
