1 Peter 4:12-14 “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you.

Important Takeaways:

  • Queen Elizabeth’s Former Chaplain Sounds the Alarm on King Charles: ‘Christianity Is Under Assault’
  • “What we have been seeing is a very slow gradual shift from being a Christian monarchy to a multi-faith one,” the former chaplain said.
  • “The problem is that you’re either defender of the faith or you’re not,” he noted, referencing the oath each British monarch must publicly give, promising to maintain in the United Kingdom the Protestant Reformed Religion.
  • Among the questions the king will be asked by the archbishop of the Church of England while giving the oath at his coronation in May:
    • “Will you to the utmost of your power maintain the Laws of God and the true profession of the Gospel? Will you to the utmost of your power maintain in the United Kingdom the Protestant Reformed Religion established by law? Will you maintain and preserve inviolably the settlement of the Church of England, and the doctrine, worship, discipline, and government thereof, as by law established in England? And will you preserve unto the Bishops and Clergy of England, and to the Churches there committed to their charge, all such rights, and privileges, as by law do or shall appertain to them or any of them?”
  • “Christianity has very distinctive and very opposite beliefs to many other world views, particularly on sexuality and the value of the individual,” he told GB News.
  • “So, the problem that we’re having at the moment is that Christianity is under assault,” Ashenden said. “Now the question is, what does a Christian king do about that? Does a Christian king save Christianity? Does he become defender of the faith, which is what his title really is? Or, as Charles has done with a sleight-of-hand, say, ‘No, I’m … defender of all faiths, which means I don’t have to defend Christianity.'”
  • “If you don’t defend Christianity today, we’ll lose it from this country,” Ashenden added.
