As political correctness becomes further entrenched in Western societies, the British government is requiring private religious schools to teach immoral behavior that is contrary to their basic doctrines. According to The Telegraph, “A private Jewish girls’ school which teaches children aged up to 8 has failed three Ofsted inspections because it does not teach pupils about homosexuality or gender reassignment” (June 25, 2017). According to the government, the school did not meet the pupil’s need for “spiritual, moral, social and cultural development”although the school has high marks in all other areas and in all other ways would be considered a model school.

As Israelite-descended societies drift further from their foundation of biblical morality, we are witnessing increasing persecution of people and groups who attempt to maintain their Bible-based beliefs. It is a sad irony that nations that grew strong promoting biblical morality are now persecuting those who still hold to that historical foundation. However, this is exactly what God foresaw happening at the end of the age. The prophet Jeremiah wrote, “you have forsaken the LORD your God, and the fear of Me is not in you” (Jeremiah 2:19). The prophet Hosea wrote, “They do not direct their deeds toward turning to their God, for the spirit of harlotry is in their midst… Israel and Ephraim stumble in their iniquity… [and] have begotten pagan children… Ephraim is oppressed and broken in judgment because he willingly walked by human precept” (Hosea 5:4-11). The moral decline of the Israelite-descended nations is sad to watch, but they will return to God after a coming period of correction.
