Brussels threatens to tear itself apart

EUROPE - The European Union is in danger of a complete meltdown as leaders from across the bloc continue to clash over how to handle a potential summer migration crisis with an EU Commissioner sending warning shots over several governments’ positions. Nations are starting to rebel against Jean-Claude Juncker’s plans to include more funding for refugees in the EU’s next budget, mainly from Italy’s new coalition government of Lega and the Five Star Movement.

Tensions reached fever pitch when Matteo Salvini, Rome’s new interior minister and deputy prime minister, blocked a ship carrying 630 migrants, including seven pregnant women, stranded in the Mediterranean. With Malta also refusing to accept the Aquarius vessel operated by the charities Medecins Sans Frontieres and Sos Mediterranee, Spain’s new prime minister Pedro Sanchez instructed port officials to welcome the ship into Valencia.

Hungary’s praise for Italy’s rejection of the stranded migrants comes as another sign of the EU’s growing division over how to handle a future immigration crisis like that of 2015. European Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos warned Brussels the bloc “cannot afford another repetition of 2015”.

The EU’s migration and home affairs chief said member states must share in the responsibility because it is “the migration crisis that has put in danger the European project”. Speaking to reporters after unveiling the EU’s plan of triple funding to defend its external borders, the Greek Commissioner said: “Our work is not over and it will not be any time soon. We have to be prepared because we cannot afford another repetition of 2015, neither politically nor financially.”

“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!
