Can Politicians Bring About Biblical Morality?


I remember a moment, as clear as if it happened yesterday, although it was about 40 years ago (!) and it prepared me for what is happening today. Indeed, it was crucial, even though I did not know it at the time. Thank you Lord.

Fast-forward to today. I watched a short video [thanks to OnesimusFiles] that examined today’s political and religious events in America (America principally, but also affecting the rest of the world). That too recalled the truths I refer to above. Both roots sprang up together – because everything in our lives is ordered by God. Continue reading

The Cashless Society and Microchip Implants


It is clear to me that powerful people – whoever they might be – have decided to get behind the idea of a cashless society and the use of microchip implants for humans. Trials are taking place in Sweden and parts of the UK right now, certainly with a view to expanding the idea worldwide if possible. Continue reading

Why Does the EU Flag Have 12 Stars?


EU-flagSometimes we need to dig around the roots to find what kind of tree is growing. The EU flag so proudly and prominently displayed everywhere is a puzzle to some. What does it signify? Why is it blue? Why are there twelve stars? What is its origin?

Going to the official EU site won’t help you! They kind of admit with a noncommittal shrug that they don’t really know. They come up with a lame excuse about unity: “The 12 stars in a circle symbolise the ideals of unity, solidarity and harmony among the peoples of Europe.” Uh-huh. OOOkaay!

Official History

One of the earliest attempts at European integration was called the European Council. As an organization, it made few policy contributions, but in 1955, they came up with a design for a flag that all member states could agree upon. This task proved so arduous that even after the European Council was absorbed by the predecessor to the European Union, members decided to keep the original design.

On May 29, 1986, the 12-starred flag was relaunched as the flag of Europe. [Source]

In this video, journalist Michael Hobbes explains the process of coming up with the seemingly simple design. It’s brief, instructional and watchable, but some of his explanations depend on the official explanation not the real one, and some of his comments are without any foundation at all. Like, the colour blue was chosen because every other colour was taken. (huh?) Watch it anyway, it’s fun. Continue reading

Big Brother Appliances


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABig brother chips will take control of home appliances – but you must pay for ‘sinister’ technology.

You may have heard that the UK is running out of power. We have plenty of energy sources, but because of the green agenda, we’re not allowed to use them.

For one thing, Gordon Brown when he was Prime Minister signed a binding agreement in the EU to commit this country to “renewable sources” for energy, and on top of that, the EU has demanded we close down our coal- and gas-fired energy plants. Continue reading
