Our enemy hates us and wants us gone. Our enemy considers that the nations of Europe are too white. They would elect a new people. Our enemy wants hate speech laws so that they will only hear hyons of peace and praise. This is not the Scotland of John Knox. This is not nationalism. And it is not truth.
It is the heresy of Babel, and a bowing to a strange God.
The fact that he was born and raised in Scotland makes no difference as to his primary and emotional drives. He acts and responds as a Pakistani or a Kenyan. Exhibit 1 is this abortion of a bill which he has presented to parliament. No other evidence is needed.
Yousaf is on record in the Scottish parliament of officially complaining that the country is too white. It would be interesting to move to Pakistan as a white-fella, get elected to parliament, (not gonna happen), and then complain that the country is too, how shall we say, Paki. It would seem slightly incongruous, but the West does not understand that word anymore. Our leaders’ rush to virtue signal overrides all ability at rational conjecture. Much better to bemoan the awful inherent racism of your own constituents than call out a rabble rousing foreign interloper intent on destroying the institutions for which ten centuries of valiant Scotsmen shed their Scottish blood.
To say this is good is a lie. And God despises those who align with such, so they are seen as virtuous. Such laws have one response.
13 The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel, who are prophesying, and say to those who prophesy from their own hearts: ‘Hear the word of the Lord!’ 3 Thus says the Lord God, Woe to the foolish prophets who follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! 4 Your prophets have been like jackals among ruins, O Israel. 5 You have not gone up into the breaches, or built up a wall for the house of Israel, that it might stand in battle in the day of the Lord. 6 They have seen false visions and lying divinations. They say, ‘Declares the Lord,’ when the Lord has not sent them, and yet they expect him to fulfill their word. 7 Have you not seen a false vision and uttered a lying divination, whenever you have said, ‘Declares the Lord,’ although I have not spoken?”
8 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Because you have uttered falsehood and seen lying visions, therefore behold, I am against you, declares the Lord God. 9 My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and who give lying divinations. They shall not be in the council of my people, nor be enrolled in the register of the house of Israel, nor shall they enter the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am the Lord God. 10 Precisely because they have misled my people, saying, ‘Peace,’ when there is no peace, and because, when the people build a wall, these prophets smear it with whitewash,[a] 11 say to those who smear it with whitewash that it shall fall! There will be a deluge of rain, and you, O great hailstones, will fall, and a stormy wind break out. 12 And when the wall falls, will it not be said to you, ‘Where is the coating with which you smeared it?’ 13 Therefore thus says the Lord God: I will make a stormy wind break out in my wrath, and there shall be a deluge of rain in my anger, and great hailstones in wrath to make a full end. 14 And I will break down the wall that you have smeared with whitewash, and bring it down to the ground, so that its foundation will be laid bare. When it falls, you shall perish in the midst of it, and you shall know that I am the Lord. 15 Thus will I spend my wrath upon the wall and upon those who have smeared it with whitewash, and I will say to you, The wall is no more, nor those who smeared it, 16 the prophets of Israel who prophesied concerning Jerusalem and saw visions of peace for her, when there was no peace, declares the Lord God.
2 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
We are commanded to meet together and to encourage each other in good works. It is not the bread we break or the altar or the wine or the liturgy or the building. The building is useful and liturgy is a guide, but both have and will be subverted by those who see the Church and charity as a way of making the state’s taxes and influence go further. There are churches that went virtual and have not met at all.
And we may be forced into not obeying this command by the state, but we have to repent. Publicly. And then the sate will have to force its hand, and show that it is converged with the font of all evil.
Most Christians leaders will, if pressed, advocate ‘rendering unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s’; but they are, in truth, advocating rendering unto Caesar that which is God’s – with the excuse that they have No Alternative but to comply.
What this actually means is that the (threatened) cost of non-compliance is too high for them to bear, or else they think the cost of disobedience is too high, and not worth paying.
In sum – they are not heroes of faith. But then again – who is? But few ever, and fewer than ever now. The question is how to live in accordance with God’s creation when one is Not a hero of faith.
What Christian leaders should (but do not) acknowledge, is that they have-been and are-being compelled to sin; and that sin requires repentance (and, I would add, the public sin of public figures requires public repentance).
What they typically fail to acknowledge is that Caesar is – nowadays – on the side of Satan. That is something they (and we) should be clear about from the start. However it may have been in Roman times; here and now, Caesar is in the business of propaganda for, and enforcement of, inverted values. Caesar serves Satan, not God.
Be very aware that you can be deluted. You have limitations. There are things that will not work, and no matter how many qualifications you have and how woke you are, physics does not change.
There are too many within the Church who look to the state for salvation. The current state is our enemy.
and the spiritual war is getting more intense. Do not be like the elite, and want their praise. Because they are now acting like schoolgirls, wanting complete consensus and shinning anyone with a skerrick of thought.
And they will survive as well as a wall without reinforcement (read steel ) built in during an good size earthquake.
