German voters flee to the political margins

GERMANY - Angela Merkel quit politics today after it became crystal clear the German nation was turning its back on the mainstream and finding comfort in the parties more usually on the fringes. The two big winners from the collapse of Merkel’s CDU in the Hesse state elections yesterday were laser-focused single issue parties with a crystal clear dog-whistle message.

On the right the anti-migration Alternative for Germany AfD was a winner and on the left the Greens picked up a huge chunk of the vote. These voter shifts exactly mirror the results of the state elections in Bavaria on October 14 where the AfD gained more than 10 percent of the vote and the Greens became the second biggest party.

To those with longer memories evidence of the increasing disaffection with the mainstream, and the move towards the extremes, will make for uncomfortable reading. In 1919 the fledgling National Socialist German Workers Party was an angry rabble railing harmlessly at the establishment but building grassroots populist support. Just 20 years later Hitler was Germany’s totalitarian Nazi leader and fired the opening shots of the Second World War.

“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!
