Germany alone within the EU

GERMANY - If there’s one thing in Germany more resistant to change than the cult of a strong currency and a love of well-balanced accounts, it’s a foreign policy founded on the European project and strong ties with the US. Yet the map of major powers allied with Germany has changed dramatically in the last three years, as the list of satisfied friends has dwindled, and that of dissatisfied partners has grown.

Relations with the US under President Donald Trump have gone from bad to worse; those with Turkey have come close to breaking down altogether; those with central Europe are stretched thin. The shock therapy inflicted on the Greeks in 2015 at Germany’s instigation gave Latin countries a chilling glimpse of the fate awaiting those who refuse austerity. And the UK vote for Brexit in June 2016 deprived Chancellor Angela Merkel of a European ally in favour of free trade.

Some of Germany’s key economic allies have become political, ideological and cultural adversaries. The US, German industry’s biggest export market, is challenging Germany’s commercialism and social choices more and more openly. The countries of central and eastern Europe – the biggest providers of subcontracted labour to German industry, with a little-known role in its success – are rebelling against the policies Germany imposes, especially on migration.

Gideon Rachman noted in the Financial Times on 7 March 2017: ‘The situation threatens to revive an old German nightmare: the fear of being a large, isolated power at the centre of Europe.’

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
