Sexual Morality in a Christless World

Oct 12, 2016 by

by Tim Challies: The times are changing. Sexual morality is undergoing nothing less than a revolution as traditional morality gives way to something radically different. The former morality, based on the Christian scriptures, is being shoved aside by a new one that not only departs from the Bible, but outright rejects it. Meanwhile, Christians who abide by those traditional sexual morals are increasingly seen as outcasts, backward people dangerously hung up on ancient, oppressive principles....

Why I was wrong about Christianity

Sep 15, 2016 by

by Tom Holland, New Statesman: It took me a long time to realise my morals are not Greek or Roman, but thoroughly, and proudly, Christian. When I was a boy, my upbringing as a Christian was forever being weathered by the gale force of my enthusiasms. First, there were dinosaurs.

Six years old I may have been, but of one thing –...

Sep 7, 2016 by

by David Robertson, Christian Today: Keith Vaz – a senior figure in the Labour Party and one of the best-known Asian MPs in the UK – faced fierce pressure to resign from his key role as chair of the home affairs committee of the House of Commons. In an astonishing display of chutzpah (or bravery, depending on your point of view) he appeared in the Commons yesterday and asked a couple of questions which were greeted with stony silence. Eventually the pressure became too great. He has just...

What is moral relativism and how can Christians respond?

Sep 2, 2016 by

by Ryan Pauly, Coffee House Questions: Have you read anything about tolerance or morality lately in the news? It seems to be everywhere and one of the main “hot-button” topics today. Why is one group being so intolerant towards another? Why don’t they just change what they view as immoral so that we can all get along? The prevailing belief seems to be that each person has a right to their own opinion and that morality depends on the person. Each opinion is correct as long as you don’t force...
