IN response to Peter Mullen: It’s the Ten Commandments, not the Ten Suggestions, David wrote:
The false French philosophy of post-modernism is at the root of much of today’s uncertainty surrounding morality. It has resulted in people being unable to think clearly and distinguish good from evil and truth from lies. Thank you Peter Mullen for reminding us of this.
Thank you also for quoting from, I think, Isaiah chapter 7, where 700 years before Christ, he accurately prophesied the purposes attaching to the death of Jesus, and how God would use that event to offer us all salvation. But our salvation requires not just repentance, admitting guilt and sincerely saying sorry, but pledging future obedience, all traits very absent from today’s self-centred culture, a culture which has lost its moral compass.
Although strongly optimistic by nature, and through my Christian faith, I see only decline ahead of the UK, despite Brexit which I was personally heavily involved in, all because we lack sufficient people with a firm, Judaeo-Christian-based morality. Indeed I have felt for some time that only a large-scale religious revival will lead to a national resurgence, to become once more a decent and truthful country, led by men and women of character, with lives that reflect those values.
