If you can’t convince an atheist abortion is wrong…you’re doing it wrong

Feb 11, 2016 by

By Jonathon van Maren, LifeSite: One of the key mistakes Christians make when approaching the culture wars is dividing truth into two categories: “secular truth” and “God’s truth.” This is a wrong-headed approach. All truth is God’s truth, and thus making a scientific argument utilizing the facts of embryology is making a Christian argument. When, as some Christians do, we allow that embryology is somehow a “secular” realm of thought, we give credence to the claims of secularists and conscript...

The mad, the bad and the down-right dangerous

Jan 25, 2016 by

From Voice for Justice UK: In these days of legislatively defined equality, history is being rewritten. In particular, a certain section of the population now appears to hold the view that Christianity lies behind all that is evil in the world, and that Christians are not just fair game, but must be rigorously suppressed. Easy meat, in fact. Down the centuries, they suggest, Christianity has spawned more bloody conflict than anything else on the planet. And, if not waging outright war upon...

By Andrew Brown, Guardian: For the last 1,700 years, to be English has meant to be Christian. This now seems to have changed for ever. “No religion” has now overtaken “Christian” as the majority position among white British people; and the younger they are, the more likely this is to be true.

Who will fight society’s religious illiteracy?

Jan 7, 2016 by

By Gillan Scott, Christian Today: I believe in God. There I said it – and it looks like my world hasn’t collapsed around me. These are four little words which are easy to say on a Christian website, but can prove costly in many other settings. I thank God I can admit to that here in the UK without fear of intimidation, persecution or worse. Yet despite all of our apparent freedoms, we’re frequently reminded that for many of us it is still difficult to admit outside the safety of...

Worship of Self corrodes the obligations of marriage

Jan 5, 2016 by

From The Conservative Woman: In response to Kathy Gyngell: A New Year resolution for Dave. Sam to lead a campaign to make marriage cool, Phil R wrote:  I am not sure that “cool” will work. Practically we need to make divorce more difficult and provide clear reasons for doing this and (especially) answer the the first criticism that will be sent our way, that we will be “compelling people to live in unhappy marriages” How powerful is a simple adjective like...
