Dr. Derek P. Blake replied to Dr. Derek P. Blake's discussion The Counter-Extremism and Safeguarding Bill in Over the Pond - A Group for UK Members and Issues
"Well that's another similarity that government do things that are illegal, like the redefinition of marriage bill where the majority of people and the members of the house were against it, but the government forced it through, putting a 'whip' on the bill.  If the governing party put a whip on a bill, it means that members of the government cannot vote against it, just abstain, but if you want a career in politics, you vote with the government.  However the PM cannot circumvent the Houses of Parliament, and the House of Lords acts like a safeguard, which is why I am against the abolition of the House of Lords, which includes Anglican Bishops (Lords Temporal and Spiritual).  Even though the Lords rejected the marriage bill, the government found a way around it.  One thing that surprised me, was that our Queen, as a very committed Christian, didn't veto the bill, as she has a right to do under our constitution.
The EU wanted the UK to write a 'Bill of Rights', as many other European cou…"

"You know, my Brother, it seems that the same reasons the Revolutionary War was fought over, and why we left your government are still in place. We put the Bill of Rights in place, and made it a part of our Constitution, and it seems that you'all need a Bill of Rights over there. Do like we did, have a civil war (in your case) or something and get some rights back from the Government. "We hold these rights to be self-evident" applies to you, too. Because of our Bill of Rights, every example above you described would have been allowed.
You also could use specificity in your laws, which here we have and often complain about but need. When we write a law in Congress, it's thousands of pages long, and covers every detail (for the most part). Where we get in trouble is when a President circumvents Congress and writes his own narrow based laws called Presidential Proclamations, most of which are actually illegal but when he runs the folks who decide and prosecute the legality of it, we're in…"

"No one has yet been imprisoned for expressing their views, with the exception of a couple of Muslim preachers (Abbu Hansah etc), but Christians have been given a gagging order, ordered not to share their faith or to pray with anyone, even when asked to do so.  These have been regarded as extremist views in the past, so it is worrying when the government passes laws without specifying what the offense parameters are.  As a 'for-instance' the UK law says that if threatened or if you find a burglar in your house, you can use' 'reasonable force'; however the law does not specify what reasonable force is.  A farmer who had suffered from a multitude of thefts of equipment and livestock, shot a thief dead in the act of stealing.  The farmer was arrested and imprisoned for murder, because the law said he used excessive force.  Another guy beat up a burglar with a base-ball bat and was imprisoned.  One famous event was a burglar was injured in the course of burgling a house (can't remember how…"

"What could be the consequences of being labeled extremist? Probably most of the people here who have opinions are extremists and would likely be proud of the label."

Well, I guess that's kinda crazy. We all need prayer. I should have said, I need specific prayer...and/or advice...I just plain need help. I have been married for 12 years now. Right before we got married, my wife was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Of course, I loved her and still do dearly, so we continued on with the wedding. As the years have gone on, she has become bedridden. We have two beautiful children, but have only had sex one time in the last 6 years. This may sound terribly selfish, but I am dying inside. I love my wife to no end. I love my children. But, I am missing out on the intimate touch of a woman. I need desire someone to hold and have sexual relations with. I am utterly and totally sexually frustrated. I don't know what to do. Please help. Prayer is the best gift. Please pray for me and my family. I'm slowly dying inside.

"Of course we have, or supposed to have, freedom of speech, in the UK, and yes the Brits are free to criticize the government, piety-much the same as the us.  There are many TV programs that criticize or make fun of the government, even on the BBC.  The problem here is that firstly the government is failing to specify what they mean by 'Extremism' and secondly, Christians have already been taken to court for 'Inciting Hate' using existing laws.  One of the issues has been people standing on their beliefs over homosexuality, and the other for Christians declaring that Islam is a false faith.  There have been many complaints made under the Race Relations and the Equal Opportunities' bills that have resulted in court cases and Christians being labeled 'extremists'. "

Dr. Derek P. Blake published an article in Christian History
A part of Jewish history, and therefore a part of Christian history is the destruction of the second temple in Jerusalem.  The destruction was prophesied and the rebuilding of the temple is a major part of the prophesies that concern the second coming.  The second temple was destroyed by the Romans at the end of the Jewish revolt (70BC).  During the revolt the Jews minted their own coins, which dated each of the five years spanning the revolt.  Each of these coins (years) are bear a different legend, specific to their mint year.  A further revolt took place between 132 and 135AD called the ‘Bar Kokhba Revolt and again coins were produced.  These coins were inscribed with the legend, “Year (1, 2 0r 3) of the Redemption of Israel”
In the fourth to seventh centuries AD a different dating system was used, not being dated by the revolts but by the disasters that ended them.  Some of these dates such as on tomb inscriptions were dated by the number of years after the destruction of the seco…

"After watching the video, I can't but feel grateful that here in the U.S.A. we have the 1st Amendment, which basically says the freedom of speech shall not be infringed upon. We can discuss, print, and put on TV or radio basically whatever we think of anything, as long as it's not meant to hurt others, subvert the government as in espionage or violence, or insult anyone who's not straight sexually (that last one is being worked on now).
In Britain, can't you publish freely articles that state what you see wrong with the government? Or, organize to protest and change the government thru peaceful means? Just how free is the press to report and opinionize over there?"

In the queen's speech a few day ago the government declared its intention to introduce a Counter-Extremism and Safeguarding Bill. 
An “unfocused” approach to extremism could lead to many more people being labelled as an ‘extremist’ by the Government, The Christian Institute has warned.
Simon Calvert, Deputy Director for Public Affairs, said the “truly dangerous” people should be the target of the Government’s plans, and that others should be left to enjoy their freedom of speech.

Dr. Derek P. Blake replied to Dr. Derek P. Blake's discussion A Time of Change in Christian History
"Thanks for adding this clarification Pamela, certainly the Council of Nicea got one thing right, as you point out Jesus was fully God and fully human, which I was attempting to show in my recent blog.  I also believe that God's manifestation in human form was of manifold purpose.  We have to ask, why was Jesus born in a natural process, between conception and birth, and why did He progress naturally through a normal childhood; rather than being created as a fully grown person, as was the case when Adam was created?    Up until the birth of Jesus all of God's experience of the human race had been second hand, through the experiences of other humans.  I cannot imagine how an eternal, and all powerful God could actually have intimate knowledge of what it was like to be human.  So through Jesus God experienced first hand what being a human was about.  As you mention, He experienced "exhaustion, hunger, thirst, sadness, and anger", and to those we can add grief, temptation, the trials of…"
