Community Instead of taking care of the occasion, chose lead Party Christians a totally passive approach.

When the controversy surrounding my book "22. July prophecy "was at its height, ended Party The Christians (PDK) with one in the national spotlight.

For many in Norway was probably the first time they noticed this mini party, the PDK several times in a short period of time was highlighted on interviewing.


Here we got the whole country hear that at least three PDK candidates publicly supported the book, a book that also had been sold from the party's choice stand on several places. Already when the damage happened PDKs public 'image', and no renunciation of the book would be able to change people's perception that many in the party stood inside for ideas in this book.


But management of PDK was not in a position to just be able to vouch for the book. For among party members it was obvious disagreement about it.


But there was a real third option, which could have helped voters to understand why this book had such resonates within certain parts of the PDK. This third option would also have been able to help the Party to preserve the internal device.


As party leader Erik Selle was interviewed by BBC, could his answer have been as follows:


"This book reveals things that we have to take seriously if we want to avoid such incidents in the future. It shows how preparedness failed in a completely strange way on 22 July.


The book also contains a very good policy analysis in terms of the Labour Party and the AUF's historical relationship to Israel.


It therefore represents a legitimate resource for understanding two of PDKs matters of the heart, and as party leader, I believe that the controversy that now in progress is a unique opportunity for Norway to deal with more serious conditions that we would otherwise have failed.


That said, not everyone in the party who agrees book's theological conclusions, and therefore I believe that the spiritual aspect can be left to the theologians. "


Not only would such a stance have promoted understanding and trust among voters, but more importantly, it could have given PDK a real opportunity to get their voices heard at the national level.


What seemed like a serious crisis within the PDK, was actually an exceptionally opportunity to participate and set the course for the national political discussion.

And considering that this small party only represents half a percent of the voters, it would make use of such occasions have been able to contribute much more than maintaining PDK in its current form.


Dear friends, it is not realistic to think that PDK has no future unless the party is willing to take a substantial degree of risk. We live in a post-Christian society where the Christian influence is declining. And if a newly founded party PDK to have any hope of success in such an environment, it needed nothing less than a miracle.
I think that PDKs ultimate success stands or falls with whether it takes place a larger fundamental shift in our society.

Either there must be a spiritual revival at the grassroots level or a political awakening. And this shift must take place soon since a relatively large part of the constituting Party The Christians are older.

I do not think that PDK has 10 years to gradually bring the Christian Democratic Party (KrF) its place, which in recent years has remained quite so close to the threshold.

 PDK had an opportunity to dictate the outcome of this controversy, which could have created the fundamental shift that the party needed.

Just think of what it could have resulted if a united party had stood up and defended the purely political aspects of this book! This could have led to an awakening with regard to the crimes that Norway has committed to Israel through the Oslo Accords!

Perhaps Labour have finally been forced to do something with their systematic betrayal of Israel?

This book's controversial nature amounted to just such an opportunity. But instead of taking care of the occasion, chose lead PDK a completely passive approach. The election results show that this approach did not lead.

Had the result been able to get any worse if they had chosen a different approach?

There is a final point that I think it's worth mentioning.

I think many were very surprised to see that the party leadership asked Jan Ernst Gabrielsen to resign as county leader after he had stood up for the book.

Does anyone remember how Inger Marit Sverresen in 2012 had to resign as lokallagsleder in Sarpsborg Christian Democratic Party, after she backed Per Haakonsen's statements that Utøya disaster should be seen as a warning from God?

Shortly afterward, Inger Marit welcomed by PDK, and she remains with the party's county leader in Østfold.

Personally, I remember how many in PDK honored her for the backbone she showed in conjunction with Sarpsborg KrF case.

Is not it a bit ironic that Jan Ernst Gabrielsen has now become the new Inger Marit Sverresen?
