DRUDGE REPORT FLASH 2004�: "'The EU may indeed split. But a split need not be a dis-aster. It could lead to a multi-layered EU in which different countries adopt different levels of political integration and experiment with different economic models.'

However, the magazine added that there was also the potential for a 'darker' out-come. 'A split could cause Europe once again to divide into rival power blocks. 'That could threaten what most agree is the Union's central achievement - peace in Europe.'"
-------
This is exactly why it will not ultimately succeed. It is an attempt to build a tower to heaven, to bring in a millenium of unity and peace. This denies the Cross of Christ, exalts man above God, denies the presence of evil and the necessity for conflict with it until the Lord God brings in everlasting peace through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. It will not succeed because the decree has already gone forth, "Babylon is fallen, is fallen!" How much blood has been shed, how much burning and raping and looting and murder and hatred has been foster by this harlot woman and the end is not yet!

Heidelberg Catechism:

Q32: But why are you called a Christian?
A32: Because by faith I am a member of Christ [1] and thus a partaker of His anointing,[2] in order that I also may confess His Name,[3] may present myself a living sacrifice of thankfulness to Him,[4] and with a free conscience may fight against sin and the devil in this life,[5] and hereafter in eternity reign with Him over all creatures.[6]

Q127: What is the sixth petition? [of the Lord's Prayer]
A127: And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; that is, since we are so weak in ourselves that we cannot stand a moment,[1] and besides, our deadly enemies, the devil,[2] the world,[3] and our own flesh, [4] assail us without ceasing, be pleased to preserve and strengthen us by the power of Thy Holy Spirit, that we may make firm stand against them and not be overcome in this spiritual warfare,[5] until finally complete victory is ours.[6]
