Are you a Christian Exposed Person? Might you be exited by your bank? You can certainly lose your job if there is enough evidence to convict you of being a Christian. Do you remain in employment at the cost of overt witness to Jesus Christ, your secret Living Lord? How many compromises do you make every day in family life? Do you stand out like a sore thumb? In company do you find that you are the only one who does not swear, use bad language and tell risqué jokes? In conversations are you quiet and undemonstrative, fearful of saying what you really think lest it cause upset or offence and more likely an awkward silence? Or do you express your Christian views and watch the uncomprehending reaction? Do you create a conversational vacuum? Does the room empty? Are you the only person on your street who goes to Church on Sunday. Are you virtually unknown in your local pub?
You could be one of Britain’s Church leaders, dressed up in colourful robes and so identified with the established churches of the land. You would have to be very quiet on the topical issues of the day except to indicate alignment with woke culture, offering no distinct intellectual challenge to the values being presented as norms in this post-Christian society. You will keep your job, your status and its benefits. You could do some modest good. You may also receive an OBE when you retire.
You may be one of many hidden Christians throughout the land. You may be a primary school child, a teenager, a teacher in our schools obliged to conform to 2SLGBTQQIA+ ideology, acknowledge the flag flying above the playground and keep your inner feelings to yourself, fearful of exposure as one non-compliant. You are already a Christian Exposed Person. Failure to articulate the dominant view is seen as non-conformity. Like people in North Korea and China, you cannot be seen to be the first person to stop clapping.
What is ESG? Environmental, Social and Governance is a framework used to assess an organisation's business practices and performance on various sustainability and ethical issues. Sustainability is about Net Zero. Ethical issues are about micro-minority sexual expressions which have achieved political dominance over large majority inherited world wide, human history long heterosexual norms. Sustainability is a globally proportioned issue. The ‘S’ in ESG is about promotion of micro-minority scale alternative practices to the means of human procreation. These are strange bed-fellows. The minor is parasitical on the major, linking the two by manipulation, unrelated in fact. Green Party politics subsumes the one within the other.
Sustainability is a goal which most people share. The means towards it, however, are a matter of judgment, agreement and disagreement. In a democracy these matters are available for debate at every level. There is much projected computer generated opinion. It is not data, it is not fact. There is evidence and it counts. The patterns of heat and cold and drought and rainfall are changing before our eyes. Can humanity act in unison? Will scientists and inventors find new ways to ameliorate our condition? History suggests that they will.
It is a matter of political indoctrination to subsume these issues into the culture of society, business and education as a condition of participation. The debanking scandal has shed a light on the increasing undermining of Christian heritage, Christian ethics, Christian behaviour, Christian hope. Has any Church leader said so? No. They are afraid of becoming a Christian Exposed Person.
Jesus lived a pastoral life of environmental simplicity being in touch with nature as God-given. He taught, ‘Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendour was dressed like one of these.’ Thus far environmentalists might agree.
He also criticised the ethics and lifestyles of the people and culture of His time; ‘You unbelieving and perverse generation’, ‘a wicked an adulterous people’, ‘I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart’, ‘Blessed are the pure in heart, they shall see God’. To those breaching Judaism’s strict social rules He said, ‘Follow me’ and ‘Sin no more’. The ‘S’ protagonists in ESG would disagree with, persecute and hound Jesus to oblivion.
