Real Christianity on Display
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
This is a story from Great Britain about Hazelmary Bull and her husband Peter. She is a real Christian who boldly proclaims the truth of the Bible and will not back down under any circumstance.
They own a Bed and Breakfast business and will not rent a room to any couple who are not married. This is their policy for decades with heterosexuals. Well, the homosexuals are upset about refusing them a room and took the Bulls to court. They might loose everything, but Hazelmary’s defense of the faith is something to behold.
After reading this, if you do not have faith like the Bull’s, just seek the Lord for it. We all need this faith to stand as a witness against the reprobates in the hour we live.
They are a witness to all of Great Britain and beyond to God’s word.
Hazelmary speaks God’s truth in love, which we all need to do.
An Older Christian Woman Puts Today’s Compromised Preachers to Shame 10/10/13 After reading this. I have a feeling that not one pastor in Great Britain came to her aid. Maybe some individuals helped, but the vast majority of pastors and church leaders were safely hidden in the tallest grass they could find. They surely did not want their reputations tarnished from associating with Hazelmary.
I know that the Lord Jesus is with her, as she is His handmaiden.
“Hazelmary and her husband, Peter, already in his 70s, owned and operated a bed-and-breakfast in Cornwall, England, for three decades. Five years ago, they refused to rent a double-bedded room to a homosexual couple, since they only rent these rooms to married men and women, as stated plainly on their website.
The two men were offended and took the Bulls to court, and this Christian couple was found guilty of hurting the feelings of the gay couple and were fined nearly $6,000.
The Bulls are now appealing that decision to the U.K.’s Supreme Court, although due to decreased business they have had to close down their bed-and-breakfast. Since the court case, they have also suffered personal death threats as well as vandalism to their building, but they have not backed down from their convictions.”
The following are questions and answers involving Hazelmary:
“Lorraine Kelly: May I suggest that maybe you are in the wrong business? Because when you think about it, only 47 percent of couples now are actually married, so when you do that, you forget all the arguments and all the rest, but actually from a business sense, sure, it doesn’t make any sense.
Hazelmary Bull: No, on the face of it, it looks like that because we have always refused a double-bedded accommodation to unmarried heterosexual couples.
When challenged by Kelley, Hazelmary explained, “It’s Bible-based; it’s entirely Bible-based.” (Pastors, take note of her words. This is how we should operate our local assemblies as well, based on the Word, not on marketing principles.)
Aled Jones: As a Christian, the God you worship is a loving God, is a tolerant God. And if people are in a civil partnership, they are obviously in love, so what is wrong with them sharing a bed?
(Note that Jones came to national fame as a hymn-singing child, and in 2004 he was voted Religious Broadcaster of the Year by the Churches Media Council for his work with Songs of Praise. He still hosts BBC’s Songs of Praise show, and within the last four years he has released albums featuring hymns and Christmas songs. What in the world happened to Aled Jones?)
How does Hazelmary reply to his challenge? You’ve got to love this!
Hazelmary Bull: I think it’s a myth to believe that entirely. He is a loving God, that’s true. He’s a forgiving God, but there is—
Jones: And a tolerant one?
Bull: He is a longsuffering God; He’s not entirely tolerant because the Bible is full of cases when He does finally bring judgment about. We felt that we wanted to, as far as possible, live according to His instructions, and the Bible is very clear about marriage.

The Bulls are exactly the people that I want to be friends with and work in the ministry together.
In this corrupt generation, the stand that the Bulls are taking is such a breath of fresh air. This is real Christianity.
