The cultural climate of our day often makes the politically engaged Christian feel isolated.
So many issues are beyond us. Safe schools, parent’s rights, conversion therapy, abortion, euthanasia, religious freedom, moral decay, children’s innocence, political apathy, weakened churches… You get the drift.
The Australian Association of National Advertisers (AANA), facing increasing backlash from the community, have launched their latest virtue signaling attempt, announcing that they are “tightening” their code of ethics to prevent negative gender stereotyping.
If it wasn’t so serious, it would be a joke.
The battle we are all in “…today for …the sanctity of human life, or the building of a moral culture” (John Piper) is waged against overwhelming natural odds, with many defeats.
No doubt most of you have now heard about the absurd new campaign being promoted by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services.
Council of the Aging (COTA) has called elder abuse an epidemic in Australia.
They suggest rates of abuse could be as high as 10% of older Australians.
Let that figure sink in for a minute.
It wasn’t until I worked for ACL that I realised how much I had gotten away with it.
I simply did not have to tell people that I was a Christian if I didn’t want to.
Whether a new friend, my dentist, or the checkout operator making small talk, I didn’t have to say a word.
Congratulations to Tory Shepherd on her article in the Advertiser Saturday 21 July 2018, which had a cross – the symbol of the generosity, humility and forgiveness of Jesus Christ front and centre. It is the best argument for religious instruction in our state schools.
Comments by the Sex Industry Network reported in ABC news that prostitution “is just sex …it does not bother anyone” are contrary to the evidence says the Australian Christian Lobby.
As reported in the UK Telegraph yesterday decriminalising prostitution leads to an increase in demand which leads to increased trafficking, violence and coercion.
Very little is usually mentioned about social policy during elections. Everyone assumes voters are only interested at an individual ‘what’s in it for me’ level.
$68,000 is a lot of money.
If it’s a bill from the police, one assumes it must be for some serious wrongdoing.
But to charge such a sum for the wrongdoing of others? It seems crazy.
