A brief report of the CRE Exhibition.
The Christian Watch stand at this year’s CRE Exhibition at Sandown Park was larger than in 2012. It was on the ground floor in the Surrey Hall and in view of the main entrance to the exhibition Hall. On the first day, before the doors were opened as anticipated, there was much activity in finalizing the stands ready for presentation and in making last minute adjustments. Our stand was manned by Committee Members Marcus Brockes and David Lawson with help from Steve Black, Paul Horwood and Ian Gander. For those who are not aware, Michael Hobbis National Co-ordinator for Christian Watch could not lead the promotion this year as he was laid aside with illness.
The main purpose of our presence at such an exhibition was to promote our work for the Lord by explaining the aims and purposes of Christian Watch and to encourage people to make a stand with us by becoming active members. It is obvious at such an event as this, that there is much that goes under the banner of ‘Christian’ and ‘Christianity’ which cannot be justified anywhere in Scripture. We are thankful to those who stopped by to encourage us, especially those who noted the TBS Scripture posters which were placed around the walls of the interior partitions of our stand. We gave out much literature along with the Christian Watch booklet and application forms which were placed inside. We also had a visual promotion in the form of a screen slideshow presentation promoting the work of Christian Watch which looped continually throughout the week of the exhibition.
Christian education is under attack in America as never before. Yesterday on this website, we highlighted the plight of the Romeikes, a German Christian family who is seeking asylum in America because the German government forbids their homeschool instruction. The Obama Administration is siding with the German government and its view of homeschooling, and they are seeking to deport this family who wants to educate their children in accord with God’s Word. If the U.S. Attorney General succeeds in denying their asylum, it may have chilling ramifications for religious and educational liberties in the United States.

At the present time, an appalling Evangelical Ecumenical Apostasy has happened. What is at stake is the very righteousness of Christ Jesus the Lord in His perfect, finished work that is proclaimed in the Gospel. In fact, many well-known Evangelicals in their endeavors to attract people have concealed the Gospel of grace. The video that you are about to see gives the names of those who embrace this horrendous apostasy.
It is a “great idea” to allow the morning-after pill to be handed out in schools, a leading GP in England has said.
But there is concern that such a move would seriously undermine parents.
Dr Anne Connolly’s comments came after a group of NHS experts in Scotland called for the Holyrood Government to allow the move.
Norman Wells, Director of the Family Education Trust, said: “Schemes like this are giving girls as young as 13 a licence to engage in illegal sexual activity and denying them the protection of the law that the age of consent is intended to give.
“Health workers who provide under-age girls with contraception without the knowledge of their parents are seriously undermining the role of those parents.”
And Conservative MP Philip Davies said if teenagers were given morning-after pills or contraceptive injections by school nurses, their parents should be told.
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
Excited children masquerading as witches, ghosts, goblins, demons, and other grotesque characters skipping through the neighborhood knocking on doors chanting “trick or treat” while holding out a sack in which one is to drop a piece of candy or other goodies … the party at school, or church, or Sunday School where they bob for apples, tell fortunes, or go through “haunted houses”… decorations of jack-o’-lanterns, witches on brooms, and black cats with arched backs … It’s “Halloween”–one of the strangest days of the year. Are Halloween activities really just the simple, innocent holiday fun most people believe them to be? Where did this holiday originate? Why is this holiday celebrated? History provides the answers.
(by Mr. Ian Henderson – Vice-Chairman)
Holywell – on the North Wales coast – was the venue on Friday, 5th October, 2012 for the Annual Meeting of Christian Watch – an organisation set up to uphold the Protestant Reformed Faith upon which our National Constitution is established.
In the presence of a well-attended gathering of God’s people, the Vice-Chairman of Christian Watch, Mr. Ian Henderson (in the absence of Mr. David Crowter, the National Chairman – due to illness) outlined the reason for the existence of Christian Watch – pointing out that there was a desperate need in our day to acknowledge the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour. As a nation, he said, we are in a most wicked state, with men ruling over us – from all political parties – who are godless and have no love for the Word of God. The Word of God states in 1 Samuel 2 verse 30 – ‘for them that honour Me, I will honour’ and the Lord has greatly blessed Christian Watch since its formation as it endeavours to honour God in all its doings. …..
Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, who was originally sentenced to death in his native country for his Christian faith, was acquitted of apostasy charges and released from custody.
Nadarkhani, 32, was imprisoned for three years and waiting execution for refusing to renounce his Christian faith. His charges were lowered to evangelizing to Muslims, which carried a three-year sentence. He was released with time served, according to the American Center for Law and Justice, a Washington-based watchdog group that had been campaigning for the pastor’s release.
