    Scotland needs Jesus. Western children are lost because the society conceals Christian teachings from them. Europe has goodness and might and glory only because of Christianity. It’s time for the Western Europe to repent and return to the God of Israel, before more children become lost. The gravest crisis in the West is the internal loss of Christianity and nothing of foreign elements or money. Children are happy when there are godly real parents.
