Sex and the Word of God

Jun 11, 2020 by

by Keith Sinclair, Church Society: We are all here because of sex. A man and a woman have sex (married, perhaps) and we came along. Sex, like death, like life, is universal. We need no apology for speaking about it. This edition of Crossway should be a resource for the Mothers’ Union, Youth Groups, school lessons, home groups and sermons. In this article I want to consider the sweep of the word of God, as it talks about sex and marriage and love, to see how the Spirit of God wants to speak to...

What is God saying in the coronavirus pandemic?

May 30, 2020 by

By John Stonestreet and Roberto Rivera, Christian Post: A recent poll conducted by the University of Chicago and the Associated Press concluded that “the coronavirus has prompted almost two-thirds of American believers of all faiths to feel that God is telling humanity to change how it lives.” For Christians, who know from Scripture that God has revealed Himself as the ultimate and consistent communicator, the question isn’t if He’s speaking in the events of the last few months. He is....

As we confront mortality, why do our bishops have so little to say?

Mar 19, 2020 by

by Damian Thompson with Gavin Ashenden, Spectator:   Do you sense that something is missing in the churches’ response to the coronavirus? No one can fault them for ignoring the dangers of spreading the virus: bishop after bishop has taken the difficult decision to suspend public worship, and offered sensible advice about precautionary measures their flocks can take. And, in many cases, that’s about it. Indeed, many church leaders, including the Archbishop of Canterbury, sound...

Weird woke world of the Progressive Christians

Mar 15, 2020 by

by Dr Campbell Campbell-Jack, The Conservative Woman: SECULAR progressivism has colonised Christianity, and the resulting progressive faith has become the acceptable religion of middle-class niceness. Their desire is for a Jesus who fits in with their pre-conceived notions of what is right and proper, not the Jesus of the Bible. Jesus spoke to those who were broken and hurting with understanding and compassion. He lashed with His tongue, and knotted cords, those who perverted the Bible and...
