Lead Europe? Berlin can’t even lead Germany

GERMANY - It was only recently that Germany seemed like a rock of stability in an otherwise unpredictable world, a country to which other EU members turned desperately for leadership and direction. Today, things couldn’t be more different.

With attempts to form a government in their fourth month, following an unexpectedly poor election performance by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats, it’s in Berlin that things are looking desperate. Never mind trying to lead Europe. It’s not clear that Berlin can even lead Germany. Many in the country now associate the decision to briefly open the country’s doors to refugees with a loss of control (Kontrollverlust).

Some even go further, claiming that it was not a loss of control, but a decision not to control (Kontrollverzicht). And indeed, Germany’s judicial system, municipal administrations and regional authorities are at breaking point. They do not have the capacity to handle the sheer volume of asylum seekers. 

For a stability-centered society like Germany, the perception that state institutions are losing control and cannot deliver, is political dynamite. And the refugee issue is just one way in which Kontrollverlust is being felt.

“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!
