The United Kingdom is scheduled to have a general election on Thursday 8 June 2017. In response to infighting and voting against the Brexit process following the UK's decision to leave the European Union the previous June Theresa May came out and called for a general election in a statement on April 18th 2017. With the negotiations on leaving the EU certain to be a central part of the manifesto for the political parties it seems that UKIP, the party formed to campaign to leave the EU, will have a resurgence.
For whom should Pete vote?

I was on the cusp of buying a birthing pool. They are inflatable and relatively cheap. Unfortunately, they are intended for women of about 5'9" height. I, however, required the birthing pool for a man. The man in question was over 6' tall. He was, of course, not going to give birth but, rather, he had been born again. The pool was required for baptism. So instead of the birthing pool I bought a paddling pool. The pool was 12' in diameter but only 30" high. I set it up in the garden and filled it with water. On my getting into the pool to try it out the week before the baptism, there was a veritable tidal wave engulfing a large section of my lawn. No good then. Instead I borrowed a custom made baptistry from a nearby church. The baptism went swimmingly.
A couple of days before the baptism, which took place in our regular Sunday morning service, there was a pool tournament in our church. The guy who was about to be baptised in the baptismal pool won…
This March we commemorate the day Jesus died, Good Friday, right on the last day of
the month. The significance of the death of Jesus is summed up in this verse:
“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the
righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5:21).
There is an amazing simplicity here – 21 words of only one syllable, one word of two
syllables, and one word (righteousness) of three syllables. It could hardly be simpler than
this–yet whole books could be written on the meaning of each phrase.
How important is this verse? Miss this and you’ve missed the truth of God. If you get this
right, you can be wrong in a lot of other places and still go to heaven. In these days of
rampant theological confusion, it is vitally important that the church of Jesus Christ be
firmly settled on the gospel message. That is, after all, our only message.
God has not
committed to us a message about political power or military might.
Advanced technology is affecting our life today by causing an increase in luxuries and facilities that result in more laziness. We can order almost anything on Amazon and get it delivered. We can get any food we want from the local supermarket. These and other cultural factors, such as the popularity of sugary foods, have resulted in a simple horrific truth: more people are becoming obese these days. It is one of the most rapidly thriving health problems of the 21st century. This health problem is more serious in developed countries. It causes serious heart problems and results in devastated effects on body.
One cure, the one that I have found to work, is the adoption of low carbohydrate diet; a diet containing lesser amounts of carbohydrates. Low carb diet enhances your body by shifting your metabolism towards the burning of fat instead of carbs. As fats are the primary cause of obesity so they must be removed to cure the effect. When your intake of carbohydrates; which are direct …
