PARTS OF BIBLE INAPPROPRIATE FOR PRESENT DAY: UK Govt Prosecutors Argue Parts of Bible ‘No Longer Appropriate in Modern Society’


Lawyers for the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) of England and Wales tried to have a Christian street preacher convicted for quoting the Bible to a lesbian couple, insisting that scripture is “no longer appropriate in modern society “.

The extraordinary case, mounted in what is still nominally a Christian church, with an established church in which the head of state serves as Supreme Governor, was brought against armed forces veteran and throat cancer survivor John Dunn, after the police referred him to prosecutors for telling a lesbian couple that it “says in the Bible that homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of God” in Swindon.

“Whether a statement of Christian belief or not, the court is being asked to consider whether the language has the potential to cause harassment, alarm or distress,” the CPS wrote to the courts when pursuing the case, in a document quoted by the Belfast News Letter.

“This document is not the forum for religious debate, but the bible contains other material recognising slavery (Exodus 21:7), the death sentence (Exodus 35:2 and Leviticus 24:16) and cannibalism (Deuteronomy 28:27),” the prosecutors asserted — sloppily, as it turns out, as Deuteronomy 28:27 actually makes no reference to cannibalism.

“There are references in the bible which are simply no longer appropriate in modern society and which would be deemed offensive if stated in public,” the CPS insisted.

“The suggestion by the Crown that there are parts of the Bible ‘which are simply no longer appropriate in modern society and which would be deemed offensive if stated in public’, is one that if accepted would have significant constitutional implications,” a Christian theologian consulted by the Christian Legal Centre to formulate a defence for Mr Dunn argued, citing the fact that the Bible “has had a unique status within British constitutional history” and was, for example, presented to the late Queen Elizabeth II at her coronation.

“Our Gracious Queen: To keep your Majesty ever mindful of the Law and the Gospel of God as the Rule for the whole life and government of Christian princes, we present you with this Book, the most valuable thing this world affords. Here is Wisdom; This is the royal Law; These are the lively Oracles of God,” she was told as the holy book was presented to her.

These arguments were not actually tested in court, however, as the case against Mr Dunn ended up being dropped — not because prosecutors had a change of heart, but because “the two women [who accused him] reportedly ‘refused to engage with the case’ after making the initial allegations”, according to Christian Concern, which works alongside the Christian Legal Centre.
What has been more concerning for some in Dunn’s case is the seeming disinterest in his plight from various churches in the British Isles, and the fact that other British prosecution services refused to say they would act as the CPS did.

The Belfast News Letter asked the Public Prosecution Service for Northern Ireland — Northern Ireland and Scotland retain criminal justice systems separate from that in England and Wales due to their history as independent kingdoms — if they shared the CPS’s view on biblical quotes being criminal, but it would only say that “[t]his is not a PPS case so we are not in a position to provide comment.”

The Church of England, Church of Ireland, Presbyterian Church in Ireland, and English Catholic Church all declined to comment — the last of these in particularly disingenuous terms, suggesting that “as this case didn’t result in a conviction, there is nothing we can add at this point”.

Mr Dunn, for his part, said he was “relieved and grateful that the case has been dropped” — and that he “plan[s] to continue to preach on the streets of Swindon.”

“When I preach, I only ever say what is in the Bible. When [my accusers] told me they were in a same-sex marriage, I was concerned for them. I had to communicate the consequences of their actions based on what the Bible says. I wanted to warn them, not out of condemnation, but out of love,” h e said in comments quoted by Christian Concern.

“I wanted… them to know that there is forgiveness through the love of Jesus,” he added.
Christian Legal Centre chief executive Andrea Williams lamented that the prosecution had ever been attempted,  saying that it was “extraordinary that the prosecution, speaking on behalf of the state, could say that the Bible contains abusive words which, when spoken in public, constitute a criminal offence.”


This is how the incarcerations of the body of Christ will begin. And something else I’m wondering about – don’t you think that it is a bit coincidental that Prince Charles is now KING Charles, and some of the things this man is saying alarms many of us.

There are many people who believe that Charles might very well be Antichrist.

We need to be looking for JESUS CHRIST and NOT Antichrist! AMEN?

    God will have the final say on this matter. Jesus Christ is the same today, yesterday, and forever. His Word does not change with the times.

  2. So parts of the Bible aren’t appropriate for society any longer ehh’? The real truth is opposite. I think these demonically inspired god wannabees aren’t appropriate for this earth. They only bring sorrow, deceit & death just like their god, Satan. Especially someone who mocks the Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son, crucified for the sins of all mankind, risen from the tomb & brands Him as a fake & liar! There’s no fear of God in these blasphemers. They SPIT on the salvation procured by the Lord Jesus Christ Who willingly died for their sins & provides the ONLY way to heaven.
    They deem themselves as god because they decide which parts of God’s written word Bible are “appropriate” or not. Reminds me of the so called Jesus Seminar held decades ago by about 50 liberal “educated theologians” who were labeled “Biblical scholars” & voted by using colored beads as to the veracity of Scripture & which of Jesus’ sayings were true as recorded in the Bible. They voted very few were actually said by the Lord. This also sounds like another bunch of god wannabees to me similar to the globalist end game to replace the living God with themselves.
    Jude v3 in part says “the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.” How do we know this? The written Word of God, the Bible & the Holy Spirit, are our only reliable guides to salvation from God to us. The Holy Spirit will guide us to all truth by pointing us to the Bible. Everything claiming to come from God must be tested against what Scripture has already proclaimed. NOTHING else will substitute. There are no more commands or deletions allowed. It’s complete & unassailable as truth.
    The God who is perfect & cannot lie wrote it & if we ignore it, we do so at our own peril.

    If the Bible has no place among the godless of the world which in & of itself mocks Christ & the Bible then the REAL Master of the universe will take His seat, foreordained from the ages, upon the Great White Throne & personally judge each & every one of these ungodly, reprobate god wannabee despotic globalist crackpots. They will find out there is only ONE seat at the Great White Throne & that seat is reserved & waiting for the all-powerful, ultimate & perfect Judge, the Lord Jesus Christ to arrive. All judgement is given to God the Son by the Father.

    Meanwhile the Satanic god wannabees trickle into Hell one by one as their God ordained allotted days come to a close. Similar to prisoners in jail awaiting sentence I suspect conversation to also be similar, such as “whatcha in for” or maybe some NOW appropriate Bible verses come alive to them like;
    Isaiah14:9-10 Sheol from beneath is excited over you to meet you when you come. It arouses for you the spirits of the dead, all the leaders of the earth, it raises all the kings of the nations from their thrones.
    v10 They will all respond and say to you, even you have been made weak as we, you have become like us.
    v13 But you said in your heart, I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God and I will sit on the mount of assembly in the recesses of the north….I will make myself like the Most High.
    v15 Nevertheless you will be thrust down to Sheol to the recesses of the pit.
    v16 Those who see you will gaze at you, they will ponder over you saying, is this the man who made the earth tremble who shook kingdoms.
    v17 Who made the world like a wilderness and overthrew its cities? Who did not allow his prisoners to go home?
    More “inappropriate” Bible verses introduce the globalist gods to their new home.
    v11 Your pomp and the music of your harps have been brought down to Sheol; maggots are spread out as your bed beneath you and worms are your covering.

    I imagine at the White Throne, Jesus will point out the many times the little globalist gods rejected salvation by faith alone in Him alone along with Bible verses & the Ten Commandments they spurned & deemed “inappropriate” for “their” world. These verses will appear b4 them & seal their doom. Not one jot or tiddle of the precious Word of God will ever pass away but the pompous little gods will die like common man & be judged by the Holy God they tried to replace.

    Jesus will close the discussion on their judgement by opening the Book of Life where their names were but now blotted out for eternity & now only death & eternal punishment await.
    These hapless “kings” will finally bow the knee & confess that Jesus is King of Kings & Lord of Lords. They will be face to face with the Lord Jesus they called “fake” & He will assign them eternally to the Lake of Fire (NOT fake) & strip them of their self proclaimed “godhood”. Too bad they never took His Word seriously or trusted Him.
