Is the Church of England cursed by God?




Here are two quotes from the New Testament.

"And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away." Matthew 21:19-20

"He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:" Luke 13:6-8

We see today that the Church of England is but a shadow of its former self. The members of the congregation are typically over 60, and with few men attending. There are very few younger real men.

How can this be? Why has this once bold organisation become so effeminate? Is it perhapse cursed, and we see it withering away before our eyes, like the fig tree?

Can it bear fruit once more, if the soil is properly prepared?

How is it that Islam is expanding rapidly now in Britain, attracting many young men, amongst them a significant number who are willing to sacrifice their own lives?

Clearly Islam has many macho verses within its writings, and so it is hardly any surprise that it can easily attract young men.

But is not Christianity equally bold, albeit not in a murderous way? It is hard to see any evidence of such boldness at the present time. It is hard to credit that the people who attend Church actually believe what they say they believe in. Surely if they did, and were willing to do something about it, the Church of England, and Britain generally would be such a different place.

So how can the fig tree be provided with dung?

We should firstly realise fully that we are in the middle of a war, whether we like it or not. Perhaps some in the Church know this full well, but are too timid to say so.

The battle lines are not too promising either: On one side a bunch of elderly folk, mainly women, and on the other side a very large number of fearless young men with hatred in their hearts. At no time in history has a battle been won by an army of women, perhaps with the exception of the mythical Amazons.

In my opinion the Church must now make a stand. It has no choice. It must speak the truth, and preach against the bloodthirsty verses in the Quran.

Boldness has its own genius, and by taking these bold steps, there may be some surprising results. Yes, there will be attacks, and we should expect to see casualties. Those who speak out against Islamic terrorism can expect to receive serious injuries, even death. Numerous churches in Britain will be burned.

However, the surprising result would be that the Church would find itself with new authority, at the centre of relevance in the Britain of today. Another surprising result, following from this, is that the congregation would surely swell, with significan numbers of real men playing a very active role.

Far better to see a large and bold congregation, with the likelihood that a number of churches will be burned down, than for the congregation to wither away. In the latter case, the churches will certainly be bulldozed to make way for Mosques.

On the subject of bulldozers, the Church of England has withdrawn its investments from companies that support Israel. This includes Caterpillar, the company that supplies bulldozers to Israel.

For all of Israel's faults, does the Church of England really believe that God has lost interest in Israel?

"But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand." Matthew 10:6-7

So now in Britain, do you not know that there is a war on?

Truth and justice are the first casualties of war. Politicians will try to make out that every religion is the same, either through their ignorance, or their deceit. You in the Church of England know that this is simply not true.

So what must be your response? You must preach the truth, to the politicians and the public alike. You must teach about the bloodthirsty verses in the Quran. You must teach about the deceit at the core of Islam.

The fig tree may yet bear fruit, and this is its last chance. If it does not, it will wither and die, and so will this great nation likewise.

Humanity needs peace not Islam.

Quran 2.256 there is no compulsion in religion.

and also the command to protect and revere followers of the book, I'm afraid I don't have Quran to hand so can't direct you to this one.
Have you read the Quran? If you have you chose to ignore anything that didn't back you up ie 99.9% of it

Firstly, thank you for your comment. The feedback is appreciated.

There are indeed a large number of verses in the Quran that are harmless, and also quite a number that are very praiseworthy.

My favourite is: "There shall be no compulsion in religion"

However, we must not be fooled into thinking that the Quran is tolerant. It is necessary to understand the concept of "abrogation". This means that the earlier, tolerant verses are superceded, and cancelled out by the later, violent verses.

Have a look at my earlier postings for examples. Abrogation is described in "The Pope is a genius!".

A consideration of Mohammed's career helps to explain how this concept has come about. His career is outlined in "The Pope calls for an end to Islamic violence, and churches burn".

It is unfortunately the case that the verses of greatest relevance, that is the later non-abrogated verses, call for non-believers to be slaughtered. I truly wish that it was not so, but sadly it is.
