Peter Hulland was preacher and pastor at Stanton Lees Chapel in the Derbyshire Dales for about 40 years.
His church, greatly blessed by the Lord over these years, has long been a centre of good preaching, with special preaching services several times a year, attended by many people.
The sin that has engulfed our nation, and infiltrated — sometimes deeply — into the professing church of Jesus Christ, demonstrates beyond all doubt that God’s judgements are at work in the UK (see ET comment, September 2015).
But, although the present situation is dire, there is an evil that still hasn’t overtaken us: God has, so far, in accountable mercy, spared Britain from one of his severest judgments — the withdrawal of all gospel influence.
‘May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world’ (Galatians 6:14).
The person who has seen the depravity of his own sinful nature and begun to feel his guilt will understand that nothing short of the sacrifice of the Lamb of God can possibly meet his need. In contrast, the unbeliever finds it impossible to see this.
