HOW OUR COUNTRY
Where once dirt, soot and pollution were accepted as normal, now everyone is alert to the problem of global warming.
Today, such emissions would only be accepted as a tourist attraction run by enthusiasts of a former time.
Clean air and control of carbon emissions are accepted as normal, allowing us to enjoy a far better living environment.
THERE IS A FORM OF POLLUTION
WHICH IS ON THE INCREASE.
The pollution and corruption of the human heart and mind.
A young man stood reading the book titles from a distance:
When I approached him and offered a leaflet, he declined, so I asked what he had been looking at and thinking about. “I was wondering who this ‘John Blanchard’ is”?I was able to explain that he is an author who writes to defend the Christian Faith.
This is how he’s described on his web site:
Dr. John Blanchard is an internationally known Christian preacher, teacher, apologist and author. He has written 30 books, including two of Britain’s most widely used evangelistic presentations, Right With God and the booklet Ultimate Questions. The latter has over fourteen million copies in print in about 60 languages. His major book Does God believe in Atheists?, published in 2000, was voted ‘Best Christian Book’ in the 2001 UK Christian Book Awards, and immediately became a best-seller, described as ‘a brilliant defense of belief in God’. Other books he has written include: Truth for Life, Whatever Happened to Hell, Meet the Real Jesus, and The Beatitudes for Today. Dr. Blanchard is now heavily committed to Popular Christian Apologetics, a project involving writing, speaking, teaching and broadcasting in defense of the Christian faith. Following on from Does God Believe in Atheists? further books in the series include, Has Science got rid of God?, Is God past His sell-by Date?, Meet the Real Jesus, Is Anybody Out There?, Where Do We Go From Here?, Evolution: Fact or Fiction?, Why Believe the Bible?, Why on Earth did Jesus Come?, Why the Cross? and JESUS: Dead or Alive?

When I offered him any or all of the books on view free of charge, the pollution revealed itself.
“I’m one of those Atheists, I think the Bible is a fairy tale and Religion is rubbish”. I was quickly able to point out that the very opposite was true, but his mind had been polluted, no longer able to think for himself, he turned and walked away. This pollution is spreading fast as ignorance of God, and confusion of gods is on the increase.
Psalm 14:1a The fool has said in his heart,“There is no God.”
Romans 1:18–23 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
George Bernard Shaw(July 26, 1856–November 2, 1950),wrote: The science to which I pinned my faith is bankrupt. Its counsels, which should have established the millennium, have led directly to the suicide of Europe. I believed them once. In their name I helped to destroy the faith of millions of worshipers in the temples of a thousand creeds, and now they look at me and witness the great tragedy of an atheist who has lost his faith.”
Yet there is hope for all, let them once see the irrationality of unbelief, call on Christ and they and their world will be freed from the pollution of the sin of unbelief.
Put Him to the test, you will find what billions have discovered down through the ages, He cleanses and purifies men and will ultimately purge the universe of all pollution.
Matthew 11:28 (NKJV) Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
John 6:37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.
The moment you repent open your heart and invite Christ in, He cleanses you so absolutely that “though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool” (Isa. 1:18). He removes your sin “as far as the east is from the west” (Ps. 103:12), and then casts them “into the depths of the sea” (Mic. 7:19). He says, “I will remember their sin no more” (Jer. 31:34).
When you were saved, He made you absolutely pure so that you can enter into the presence of God covered in His absolute righteousness: “For he has made him, who knew no sin, to be sin for us, that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” (2 Cor. 5:21). When you were saved, you were absolutely purified. Past, present, and future, every sin was done away with, and forever you’ll be pure.
