The other day I put a post on ApostasyWatch FaceBook page that contained a link to a video entitled, “The Horrific Muslim Invasion of Britain”. I’m not apologising for that or retracting it.
I also made a statement about the video, “you need to watch this guys ... and learn... what has been said is true ... Britain is now a Muslim nation”. It is the second half of this statement that I need to apologise for and retract.
“You need to watch this guys and learn” comes from my understanding that the Lord is giving Britain over to Muslims. This is because Britain has rejected the Lord and is going deeper and deeper into its sin.
The Islamic invasion of Britain should be seen as the Lord’s way of getting people’s attention, just like the Assyrian invasion of the Northern Kingdom of Israel. Please see my article “Islamic Invasion”.
However, when I said, “what has been said is true, Britain is now a Muslim nation”. I made two major errors.
Firstly, My motive was impure, I wanted recognition and validation. Secondly, I did not speak the truth.
“What has been said” came out of my heart because of a deep longing to be recognised as a man who is seen as “ahead of his time”, speaking as a modern day “prophet” as it were. My motive was selfish and I apologise and retract that part of my statement.
Also, “Britain is now a Muslim nation” is not true.
I have checked the facts and officially, the Muslim population of Britain is now approaching 5%.
Anecdotal evidence suggests that in the last census, many Muslims did not declare their religion as this question could be answered voluntarily. Please see Article in “Islam Times”.
Therefore, the Muslim population could be higher, but we don’t know for sure.
The British National Party posted an article (referencing meatinfo.co.uk) that there are about 6 million people in Britain eating Halal meat, which they claim, means there are twice as many Muslims in Britain than official figures show. I have two problems with this.
Firstly, I do not consider the British National Party to be a credible witness. They are a political party with, what seems to me, a propensity for doing just what I did, sounding their own trumpet to fulfill their own ambitions.
Secondly, I couldn’t find the article at meatinfo.co.uk they were referring to.
So I must apologise for this part of my statement and retract it.
This episode has taught me a lesson; not to let my emotions or ambitions get the better of me. I damaged my testimony and shamefully, brought the Name of the Lord into disrepute.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
