Drum roll please…………………….

…….a poster which read ‘There Definitely is a God’. Yep, thats right. It wasnt some of the adverts which blatantly put sexual images in front of hundreds of children or the one below

but this one.

The reason given was because it was ‘offensive to atheists’. For more on this story, click here.

The Christian Party did this in response to an advert launched by atheists saying on buses that ‘There’s probably no God. Now enjoy life and stop worrying about it’ (see below)

The scripture that came to light when I heard about this was John 3:19-21

19This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.”

Jesus has stated that we should not be suprised when the world hates good and loves evil

If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. (John 15:18-19)

These are the days we are living in and to be honest, we should not expect them to get any better but we should expect the world to become more hostile towards God. Whereas before, we only expected hostility to happen in places such as muslim countries, it is becoming more common in the UK. We have instances where a Christian is arrested and locked in a cell for saying that homosexuality is a sin  (even though the charges were later dropped).

I pray that as the world becomes more antagonistic towards God, that He will, in turn, grant us the boldness to stand up for truth. Not just any truth, but the truth that can only proceed from God himself.
