Sexular Colonialism

Apr 14, 2019 by

by Stephen McAlpine: If my male, pale and stale heart could be warmed, it would be so by the growing realisation that the baton of colonialism, long the historic burden of the conservative, Christianised West, can now been handed to the woke Left in our culture. The evidence is coming in in spades.  The progressive narrative has created, and is the process of enforcing, a new colonialism and, in a great irony, is enforcing it upon those it once championed.  For so long the progressive side of...

Playing with fire: Our mishandling of sex may send society backwards

Apr 11, 2019 by

by Gavin Ashenden: The discovery of fire, and more importantly learning to manage fire, was the moment when civilisation took a leap forward.

Used well they work to warm and create; used badly they destroy. Judaism and Christianity offered a clear moral code for sex. However much fun it may be, it is best contained within marriage and for making...

Sex and intelligent design

Aug 3, 2018 by

by Joe Boot, Christian Concern. In this essay, Wilberforce Academy director, Dr Joe Boot shows the importance of a person’s world-and-life-view to their understanding of sexuality. He examines the religious and philosophical ideas that drive the attack on God’s distinction of male and female – but notes that “no matter how subversive the utopian sexual revolutionaries become, they cannot finally overturn God’s creational norm and order” – because this is...
