Britain’s Sobering Future

“Britain is experiencing the same decline as Rome in 100BC, with the collapse of civilisation inevitable… Dr Jim Penman, of the RMIT University in Melbourne, believes Britons no longer have the genetic temperament to advance because of decades of peace and a high standard of living… Britain is existing in a period similar to the decades before the fall of the Roman Republic where social tensions were rife, the gap between the rich and poor was increasing and extremism was growing. And when added to a growing distaste for military action, which has seen huge cuts the armed forces, by the end of the century the UK will no longer have the power, or will, to protect itself against a serious invading force, he predicts… And once European countries can no longer defend themselves, the end of national independence cannot be long delayed” (The Telegraph, April 26, 2015). 

While critics may disagree with Dr. Penman’s assessment, his observations certainly agree with Bible prophecies that clearly state that at the end of the age, the Israelite-descended peoples will become “utterly corrupt” and experience a “time of trouble” because they provoke God to anger by their actions (Deuteronomy 31:29; Jeremiah 30:7).
