Do not worship false gods, even if they are the flag of St George

Nov 26, 2014 by

By Julian Mann, Conservative Woman: It may be heretical to say it following the furore over former shadow Attorney General Emily Thornberry’s pictorial tweet of a house in Strood festooned with St George’s flags, but the practice is open to question from a Christian perspective. Or to be precise from a Protestant Christian perspective, for Protestantism emphasises the priority of the Word of God and minimises the role of visual symbols. For example, Article 22 of the Church of England’s 39...

Misreading Scripture Alone

Nov 20, 2014 by

By Mathew Block, First Things: Anew survey on American Evangelical beliefs reports grim news, according to an article published yesterday by Christianity Today. The first line says it all: “Most American evangelicals hold views condemned as heretical by some of the most important councils of the early church.” The story goes on to highlight widespread confusion among Evangelicals on core doctrines like the Personhood of the Holy Spirit and the divinity of Christ.

But, as I argued at the time, there is no third way. A church or denomination will either believe and teach that same-sex behaviors and relationships are sinful, or it will affirm them.
