As we meet here today the Intergovernmental
Conference on the new European Union and how it is going to be governed is in
session in the City of Rome.
Even all the European wars did not attempt
to wipe out the Reformation in the way which this scheme has set out to do.
The proposals for a new Europe are well on their way to endorsement. They will
destroy every vestige of the Reformation in Europe.
They will rob from European citizens their liberties, which flowed from the
Nations which fought hard and long and at
tremendous sacrifice, are going to be swallowed up in the climax development of
the final world empire.
It has been claimed that it will be the
finest hour for the Great European Empire of Charlemagne but rather it will be
its darkest hour.
Democracy and liberty will perish and
Anarchy and bondage will take its place.
And alas because of the obstinacy of Mr
Blair the UK will have no referendum on the matter.
(Mr Blair knows he would be beaten, so no democracy for the United Kingdom!)
Mr Blair is a fascist when it comes to
putting off elections and denying referendums.
The proposal can be summarised thus:-
THE EUROPEAN KINGDOM OF THE
This month, in Rome,
the Inter-Governmental Conference on the EU Constitution convenes. Governments
are being pressed to complete their work and close the Conference by December
of this year. The goal is to have the new Constituted signed by all 25-member
states of the enlarged Union on Europe Day – 9 May, 2004.
This new, single Treaty will surpass
every past treaty from Rome to
Nice. Its main proposals will include:
A PRESIDENT OF EUROPE
The Chair of the European
A MINISTER FOR FOREIGN
Who will sit on the Commission but be
answerable to the Council of Ministers
A SLIMMED DOWN EUROPEAN
15 commissioners with a vote and 15
associate commissioners in place by 2009 – with no votes!
A CHARTER OF
Part 2 of the Treaty
A SCRUTINY ROLE FOR
Commission proposals scrutinised from the
start of their course and if one-third are against the Commission must justify
and review yet without obligation to actually alter their proposals.
THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT
WILL HAVE A ROLE IN ELECTING THE PRESIDENT OF THE COMMISSION BUT THAT ROLE IS
NOT YET DECIDED UPON.
The Constitution will surpass national law. The UK
Government does not have a mandate to agree such sweeping developments. What
the Prime Minister and his Foreign Minister describe as being “good for Britain and good for Europe”
is in fact a ‘duty of loyalty’ to the EU.
There will be no separation of powers between the
executive, legislative and judicial functions. These will all overlap. This
is in complete contrast to all genuine democratic arrangements as we know
them. Indeed, power will be more centralised within the Commission which, we
should not forget, still meets in secret.
The real power will remain in the hands of those we do
not elect and whom we cannot remove.
To leave the Union, the member
states must vote by majority to allow a country to leave. So, the UK for e.g., as one of the biggest money ponders is very
unlikely ever to be granted permission out, if it so wished.
The EU itself is not a democracy, even
if its member states are. It has always been a bureaucratic organisation,
albeit with the ornaments of democracy. Instead of dealing with its democratic
shortfall, the Constitution will strengthen that shortfall and the democratic
deficit will become greater. Enlargement of the Union has prompted the matter of a Constitution to ensure control by the
Commission of what is becoming an unwieldy Union.
We must demand a Referendum on this vital proposal. The
people, not the politicians must have the final word.

out into the public over the election of a Gay Anglican Bishop in England (though professing not to practise) and the election

Perhaps the Anglican Church’s evangelicals were never
seen in a clearer light. Compromise practiced for years becomes base surrender.
The emphasises is certainly on the fact. Truth has
surely fallen on the street and equity cannot enter.
To fellowship with apostates takes away the power to
make any effectual protest against apostasy.

Anglican Congress Leaves Evangelicals In Total
On Friday 19 September, the Archbishop
of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, greeted some 2,300 people at the opening
session of the fourth National Evangelical Anglican Congress (NEAC4) in
Blackpool Winter Gardens.
The Ven Dr Paul Gardner,
Archdeacon of Exeter, introduced the Archbishop with the words: “We hope that
this congress will help us be much clearer in our understanding that we are
part of the Anglican Communion worldwide”. This was seen as a dig at those who
have boycotted the Congress in protest against the invitation to Rowan
Williams. The Archbishop was then greeted with enthusiastic applause from the
whole Congress even before he appeared on the stage.
In reply Williams wisely confined himself to humorous
remarks and safe platitudes.
Dr Gardner drew attention to Dr John Stott, now 82, as the man to whom we are all indebted
and at whose theological feet we all sit, or so he said.
‘Our brother in Christ’
The opening address was delivered by the
evangelical Bishop Jones of Liverpool who greeted Archbishop Williams as “Our brother in Christ”. Jones
prayed that, “through your ministry He will bless the whole church”. This to
an ultra-liberal Archbishop who derides whole swathes of Scripture and approves
of clergy in a sodomite relationship!
NEACI was held at Keele in 1967, NEAC2 at Nottingham in 1977, NEAC3 at Caister in 1987. The congresses
have promoted the Stott Packer line that Anglican Evangelicals must remain
within the Church of England at any cost.
Professors Wenham and McGrath
Dr Gordon Wenham, Professor Old
Testament studies at Cheltenham
and Gloucester College of Higher Education, said that the liberal acceptance of
homosexuals in the Anglican Church was merely ancient paganism in another
guise. Other examples he cited were ‘religious pluralism, abolition of Sunday
as universal rest day, abortion, cremation, easy divorce’.
The Rev Professor Alistair McGrath, Principal of
Wycliffe Hall, reported that the proportion of evangelical ordinands in Church
of England theological colleges has now exceeded 70% for the first time. (This
requires a very broad definition of evangelicalism). McGrath ripped into
Canadian Bishop Michael Ingham, who has approved homosexual
blessings, saying that “Ingham should be awarded the Spong medal for liberal
bravery in the face of overwhelming theological arguments”.
Archbishop of York
The Archbishop of York, Dr David Hope,
who had described his own sexuality as “a grey area”, hit back fiercely at the
assembled evangelicals. Political infighting over homosexuality, he said, is
“eating the heart out” of the Church of England. His address has been
described as banging the heads of the Evangelicals together.
He spoke after the Rev David Holloway, Vicar of Jesmond,
Newcastle, told a seminar that homosexuals should be
punished: “Homosexuality is so clearly a scriptural issue. Sexual activity
outside marriage is sinful and homosexual practice is especially condemned.
Modern Jezebels have to be disciplined.”
Fulcrum meets in the bar
A new grouping for “open” evangelicals
disillusioned by last year’s avalanche of criticism of the new Archbishop of
Canterbury was launched on the eve of the Congress to the dismay of the
organisers of the Congress who believe it undermined their attempts to build
evangelical unity. It is called Fulcrum.
Fulcrum represents the self-styled “open
evangelical leaders”. They are more tolerant of homosexuality, hold looser
views of the inspiration of Scripture and say nice things about Rowan
Williams. Fulcrum’s sponsors include key evangelical leaders such as Dr
Francis Bridger, the principal of Trinity Theological College in Bristol and Tim Dakin head of Church Mission Society. Their website sets
out a range of principles and strategies based on what they described as
Meeting nightly in a bar near the Blackpool conference centre, one Fulcrum
leader estimated that they had signed up about five per cent of the Congress.
Dr Francis Bridger admitted that Fulcrum was partly a reaction to the chorus of
criticism of the Archbishop of Canterbury by Reform and Church Society. (No
doubt Fulcrum’s leaders will be rewarded with bishoprics.)
‘Conservatives’, ‘opens’ and
The impression we gain from NEAC4 is of
a very broad, incoherent evangelicalism moving to a position of dominance among
the theological students and the laity and finances of the Church of England
but far from the levers of power and trusting to numbers rather than clear
convictions to carry it to victory.
Power remains in the hands of an Anglo
Catholic – Liberal Alliance who regards the Evangelicals simply as useful
idiots and make no secret of it. It will take something stronger than the
present mish mash of ‘conservative’ evangelicals, ‘open’ evangelicals and
‘charismatic’ evangelicals to dislodge them.

Evangelicals! The emphasis is certainly
on the jelly. No back bone!

many respects, the Pope has an indisputable claim to those titles. He is, in
an emphatical sense, the man of sin, as he increases all manner of sin above
measure. And he is, too, properly styled, the son of perdition, as he has
caused the death of numberless souls, and will himself perish everlastingly.
He it is that opposeth himself to the emperor, once his rightful sovereign; and
that exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped.
Commanding angels, and putting kings under his feet, both of whom are called
gods in scripture; claiming the highest power, the highest honour; suffering
himself, not once only, to be styled God or vice-God. Indeed no less is

that he sitteth enthroned in the temple of God. Mentioned Rev 11:1. Declaring himself that he is

there is none other satisfaction for sin but that alone. Wherefore the
sacrifice of masses, in the which it is commonly said that the priest doth

a blasphemous fable and a dangerous deceit.”
Jesus Christ is the head of the Church, in whom by the appointment of the
Father, all power for the calling, institution, order, or government of the
Church is invested in a supreme and sovereign manner; neither can the Pope of
Rome, in any sense, be head thereof, but is no other than Antichrist, that man
of sin and son of perdition, that exalteth himself in the Church against

ROME DOES NOT
Uninformed people conditioned by the ecumenical double
talk of the Church Unity advocates, have come to believe that Rome is changing. This is proclaimed continually from
the platforms of the World Council of Churches. Evidently their strategy is
that if they repeat this lie over and over again, unwary, ill-taught and
unthinking Protestants will believe it. Alas, many have fallen poor dupes to
this pernicious propaganda.
The leaders of
the Roman Catholic Church have, however, made no secret of the fact that their
Church will not change, and that union will be on their terms and on their
Preaching at a
service in St. Aidan’s Methodist Church, Eastbourne, on Sunday evening, 29th
January, 1967, the Roman Catholic Apostolic Delegate to Great Britain, Archbishop Igino
Cardinale told a congregation of Roman Catholics, Anglicans and Methodists that
it was no secret that the Roman Catholic Church claimed to be the ONE TRUE
CHURCH and envisaged reunion ONLY AS TAKING PLACE WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF ITS
Cardinal Heenan, Archbishop of Westminster, declared: “Ecumenism does not mean pretending that
all denominations are equally true; it does not mean that the Catholic Church
has nothing more than other churches. The ultimate object of ecumenism is to
unite all Christians under the Vicar of Christ – the Pope.”
Cardinal Bea, sometime head of the Vatican Secretariat for
Christian Unity states:-
of education will believe that the (Vatican) Council
can or would change even a single dogma. The Supreme Pontiff and the Council
have a duty, inherent in their ecclesiastical authority, to preserve whole and
entire the doctrine passed to them by tradition, and no love for the separated
brethren can induce us to lay even the lightest hand on the sacred deposit of
Catholic Bishop of Clifton, on his return from the final session of
the Vatican Council states, that the Church of Rome had not changed its
doctrine ‘one iota’. The aim and object of the Church of Rome is the
conversion of Britain to Roman Catholicism. The same bishop
has declared that “our aim is the conversion of every man, woman and child in England to the Roman Catholic religion, and we must fulfil
In a detailed
analysis of the ecumenical council’s lasting effects, Pope Paul VI said, “its teachings have brought about no
liberation or break from the church’s traditional dogmas, but rather their
confirmation and development.”
The Pope, Paul VI, addressing a general audience on the opening
day of a week of world-wide prayer for unity candidly acknowledged the
difficulties posed by the supreme role which Roman Catholic doctrine gives the
Pope. He quietly reiterated that he was the authentic representative of Christ
on earth! “But,” continues the Pope with reference to unity, “it must not take
place at the cost of the integrity of the Catholic faith and of our Church
discipline, nor must it be guided by an easy criticism of our own things and by
an equally easy willingness to copy other people’s things, good and respectable
as they may be.”
Pope John Paul II has put the machinery of Rome into over-drive to reinstate the most abominable
dogmas and practices of the Roman Anti-Christianity.
