Has the Church today rejected God? Joe Boot argues that “faithlessness, disobedience, rebellion, sexual perversion and the misuse of God’s resources” marks “large parts of the modern egalitarian church” – much as in Samuel’s time. Joe looks back through Scripture to Hannah and Samuel and asks what we can learn from the lawlessness of Israel in Samuel’s time that we can use to bring “regeneration and reformation”.
When same-sex marriage was passed, provisions were included to stop clergy from having to solemnise the ceremonies. Today, the House of Lords debated an amendment to remove this key protection. Although the Bishop of Chelmsford opposed the amendment, he spoke about the CofE working closely with Stonewall and held out the prospect that church doctrine on homosexuality could change. After the government opposed the amendment, it was withdrawn. Tim Dieppe analyses the debate.
This week, a man was investigated by Humberside Police Force for sharing a poem that denied transgender ideology. Carys Moseley looks into the impact that this investigation could have on society, calling it the lastest example of policing ‘thoughtcrime’.
The new Wilberforce Publications title, Same-Sex Parenting Research: A Critical Assessment, launched in London on Tuesday 29th January 2019. The new research supports the 'controversial' claim that 'children do best with a mother and a father'.
If the truth about our broken family culture concerns us, we must be willing to hear the 'controversial' truth that children do best with a mother and a father.

The Commission for Countering Extremism has an open call for evidence asking the public to provide examples of extremism in England and Wales. Please respond to the call using our guide.
In December, Christian Concern brought news that ex-magistrate Richard Page was granted permission to take his case to the most senior judges in England and Wales after being blocked from returning to a non-executive director role at an NHS trust for expressing the view that it is in a child’s best interests to be raised by a mother and a father. The results of his appeal could have significant consequences for anyone expressing a Christian view in a social setting.

The Royal College of Physicians has decided to adopt a neutral position on changing laws on assisted dying – without consulting its members. Tim Dieppe discusses how this change in position seems unconstitutional, and why the law should not change. He concludes that the strong laws this country has are needed to protect the vulnerable.

Following the rejection of the deal that Prime Minister Theresa May has agreed with EU negotiators, there is a great need for Christians to pray that the government, MPs and other leaders will find the best way forward. The coming months could lead to significant upheaval and change.
