100,000 Apostates Seek De-Baptism

There are more than 100,000 Britons who have downloaded "certificates of de-baptism" according to the AP. The article calls them "atheists," but would they not be described more accurately as "apostates?"

Will not their judgment be greater according to the Scriptures? Are they not described spiritually as unreasoning animals (Jude 10)? "Woe to them!" saith the Scriptures. They are "grumblers, finding fault, following after their own lusts; they speak arrogantly, flattering people for the sake of gaining an advantage" (Jude 16). Those aren't my words, those are the words of the Bible, and their punishment will be severe.

This "movement" is being led by the National Secular Society (NSS). It is the same group that promoted the "There's probably no God" bus advertisements in London. Their goal is to preach another gospel that says, "live however you want." It is a damning gospel.

It is hard to believe that Britain has gone from the days of the English reformers of Latimer, Hooper, Ridley, and others to what it is today. This is what happens when the Word isn't preached.

May a great awakening come to Britain once again led by a movement of men who preach the Truth!
