On Monday 15th June 2015 a group of Christians gathered in the Palace Yard Westminster to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta, a document that was to revolutionise the world, bringing democracy, justice and freedom under God. They were also there to express their concerns that these freedoms that have been passed down to us, often at great cost, are gradually being lost. No longer are we free to say what we believe in public, to act according to our conscience or to stand for Bible truth.
In the days of the Bible judges “everyone did what was right in their own eyes”. There was no moral standard. The nation of Israel had fallen into idolatry which inevitably led to rampant sin. There seem to be some parallels with our culture today.
Britain has many problems and blame is directed at many targets: the politicians, the education system, poverty, the media, the EU, but in fact there is only one problem and the answer is simple. The foundations of the nation are shaking because we have turned our backs on the God of our fathers and we are allowing the Biblical basis of our laws to be removed.
At the Magna Carta Rally people stood for marriage, for the sanctity of life, for the persecuted, for the poor because these are things that matter to the heart of God. People called our nation back to God and a return to Christian values.
Here is a short Report on the Magna Carta Rally. http://youtu.be/qkkjzcu-TKc It will inspire you to stand, to pray and to act for the sake of our freedom and our nation.
