The EU Referendum

The EU Referendum

30th May 2016

On 23rd June 2016 the citizens of the United Kingdom, where I live, will be given the opportunity to vote on whether to remain in the European Union (EU) or to leave it. As a nation we have been a member of this political organisation for a long time so it is possible for us to understand what it is. In the lead up to this referendum some experts have explained to us the history and aims of this organisation.

We have also been bombarded with predictions, claims and information from various organisations and individuals both inside the UK and from outside. But what are we as Christians to make of it all? How should we vote on the 23rd? Well, I’m not going to tell you what to vote but I would like to suggest how we should go about making the decision on which way to vote. Firstly, we should not be thinking about this the way the world does. Secondly, we should understand what the EU is from a spiritual perspective. Thirdly, we should apply the scriptures to the situation. And finally, we should seek God’s wisdom. It also helps if we understand the times we are in. And as you do all of these things prayerfully, I recommend that you read a booklet by Intercessors for Britain called, ‘A Christian Perspective on the European Union and the Referendum’.
