We are seeing it happen before our very eyes: When Europeans work together based on Judeo-Christian foundations, then we achieve great results!
Last week in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) in Strasbourg the resolution presented by Dr. Valeriu Ghiletchi of Moldova , initiatied by Dr. Ben-Oni Ardelean of Romania in 2016, was adopted with a huge majority, spelling out that children must only be removed from their families as a last resort. The backdrop of the resolution is the horrendous practices of the Child Protection Services in Norway («Barnevernet»).
Europe is in need of spiritual direction. The European Union is lagging behind, steeped in bureaucracy and financial pressures, and is currently not showing the way in Europe´s moral crisis.
But the leadership is emerging in nation after nation as leaders within the Church, Government, Law, Media, Finance, Business, Entertainment and Education come together to seek and to implement God´s standards and values for our nations and institutions.
World War II should have been avoided by bold leaders who stood firmly on the Judeo-Christian foundations. But they were diverted by short-sightedness and fear.
I am encouraged by the collaboration between ideological leaders in the different spheres of European society today.
But we are just in the beginning stages as we seek to establish Judeo-Christian values in the foundational issues regarding abortion and euthanasia, family and marriage, human dignity and liberty.
We do not have to be in the majority to win this spiritual and moral war in the nations and institutions of Europe. Through wisdom a house is built, says Holy Scripture (Proverbs 24:3). As the spiritual leaders within Church & Society seek God, divine guidance will be received within every sphere.
We have reason to be joyful as we work together!
