The Democratic Delusion

March 16, 2017  |  Joe Boot

The deep-seated crookedness of the human heart due to sin means that the problem of wisdom, truth and justice for the social order cannot be solved by man's efforts to forcibly rearrange society.

The Olivet Discourse

March 12, 2017  |  Joe Boot

In answering the disciples' question about the destruction of the temple, Jesus foretells signs of an imminent temporal event which will take place in the lifetime of his audience. Instead of end times speculation, the church needs to be busy with gospel proclamation and mission.

The Power of Love

The Power of Love

March 5, 2017  |  David Robinson

Knowing the text of Scripture is not the same as knowing the powerful Word of God. Knowing the love of God personally gives us a heart that will love God whole-heartedly as well as our neighbour.

Human beings are inherently sexual creatures, created male and female, in the image of God. It should not surprise us, then, that revolt against God is expressed in decidedly sexual ways.

The Faith of William Wilberforce

February 15, 2017  |  Joe Boot and Steven Martins

It isn't possible to separate Wilberforce's faith from his career in public office. His tireless campaigning against slavery was a direct result of his Christian belief that man is made in the image of God and that life matters.

The Example of William Wilberforce

February 6, 2017  |  Joe Boot and Steven Martins

Christians called to public office have a responsibility to be true salt and light in their position; social policy is reflective of social norms, and if we will not uphold a biblical standard for a just society, we will inevitably uphold an anti-biblical standard.

Dualism in the Church

The Platonic idea of dualism has been widely discredited, except among some Christians. The ideology that abandons the created world is one that also abandons the Christian cultural task.

When we selflessly serve the needs of others, we embody God's ministerial authority. Kingdom service is true greatness because behind kingdom service is the omnipotent power of God.
