Is Prime Minister Sunak a Mistake for Britain?

Just like that, Britain now has its third prime minister in seven weeks. And he happens to be a proud Hindu.

Rishi Sunak’s accession is cause for hearty self-congratulation in today’s United Kingdom. The entire kingdom is slapping itself on the back for empowering a nonwhite man. Even Labour members of Parliament are pausing their partisan attacks to express their enthusiasm.

The Telegraph called Sunak’s rise “the closest thing this country has had to the Barack Obama story” (speaking of ethnicity, not politics). Such a comparison should give Britons pause: America’s preoccupation with race and identity politics certainly contributed to Obama’s political success, and this has proved disastrous for the country.

That it is utterly uncontroversial for the new head of government to have taken his oath as an M.P. on the Bhagavad Gita shows just how thoroughly Britain has adopted diversity and multiculturalism as superior to its Judeo-Christian heritage.

It wasn’t long ago that Boris Johnson became Britain’s first Catholic prime minister, another major step away from the nation’s Bible-centered past.

Britain has forgotten its extraordinary history: It is descended from Ephraim, one of the two birthright nations that trace back to biblical Israel, along with Manasseh, modern-day America (learn more).

The God of the Bible “hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth …” (Acts 17:26), and aims ultimately to save all peoples, of all races and religions (e.g. 1 Timothy 2:4; 2 Peter 3:9). Anciently, He called Israel for a special purpose, preparatory to making salvation universal. Foreigners who sought to immigrate into Israel could do so if they obeyed Israel’s laws and adopted its religion. But God warned the nation against mixing with foreign religions, cultures and peoples and thus undermining His purpose.

Such thinking is wholly alien, even offensive, to modern Britons. But end-time biblical prophecy pertaining to their nation actually foretells this trend and forecasts its ruinous effects. Britain, end-time Ephraim, “has mixed himself among the peoples; Ephraim is a cake unturned. Aliens have devoured his strength, But he does not know it …” (Hosea 7:8-9; New King James Version).

Practically speaking, promoting an ethnically Indian Hindu to prime minister will surely do far less damage than the many other ways Britain has weakened itself by endorsing the alleged glories of multiculturalism: granting enclaves of Muslims legal autonomy to practice sharia; ignoring sex crimes committed by “grooming gangs” because they were Pakistani (learn more); permitting the incubation of homegrown Islamist terror cells. It seems no amount of curses can shake people’s conviction in the propaganda that “diversity is our strength.”

And this is but one way that today’s Britain has thumbed its nose at the wisdom of the Bible. It simply pays no heed to God’s commands on keeping an economy solvent, restricting government welfare, conducting successful foreign relations, building strong families, and upholding standards of morality and virtue.

Such neglect is ushering Britain swiftly to its prophesied collapse—which God amply warns about in an effort to help Britons avert it. Learn more about this nation’s illustrious past and now apparently inevitable future in our free e-book Britain’s 4,000-Year-Old History.
