Defending the Christian Tradition By James Reed

     The movement to rewrite the Bible, to make it politically correct, gender inclusive, and sensitive to homosexuals etc. etc. is well underway in America:

So much for the Biblical maxim that man is not to change the word of God: Galatians 1:6-9; Revelation 22:18-19.

     In the context of this on-going war against Christian civilisation, it is refreshing to see the article by Kevin Donnelly, defending the proposition that Australia is a Christian nation: http://www.theaustralian.com.au/opinion/lets-not-deny-our-christian-roots/news-story/878614f0355a7dec05751932c55aa814. This is really good stuff, indeed:

“Rather than ignoring Christianity, the Constitution’s preamble includes the words: “Humbly relying on the blessing of Almighty God” and parliaments around Australia begin with the Lord’s Prayer.
Perth lawyer Augusto Zimmermann says Australia’s political and legal systems owe much to Christianity.
He says: “It is evident the foundations of the Australian nation, and its laws, have discernible Christian-philosophical roots.”

Concepts such as free will, the sanctity of life and a commitment to the common good are very much influenced by the New Testament. The admonition “Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself”, while not always adhered to, underpins civility, tolerance and respect for others.

While a commitment to natural justice and liberty owes much to the Enlightenment, as argued by Larry Siedentop in Inventing the Individual, equally influential is the Bible’s statement, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”
Christian charity and God’s commandment to serve others also helps explain why Christian-inspired or Christian-managed health, education, welfare and charitable groups and organisations are an essential part of Australia’s social fabric.

As TS Eliot contends in Notes Towards a Definition of Culture, to deny Christianity is also to deny much of the art, literature and music that Australia has inherited from Western civilisation.”

     Once upon a time, not that long ago in fact, it would not have been necessary to explain all of this from first principles, but times have changed. The agenda of the godless humanist materialists, marching in tandem with the globalist elites, is that Christianity, a symbol of White Western civilisation, must be replaced by a rainbow eco-religion, or no religion at all, just mindless consumerism in a global supermarket of the damned.
      Such a world makes me feel sick to the guts. That is why I fight. How about you?
