Surely a Same-Sex Partnership is OK if it's Committed and Faithful?

Sam Allberry | June 24th 2019

One of the arguments commonly made today in favour of same-sex partnerships is that what must surely count above all else is faithfulness and commitment. Shouldn’t faithfulness within a relationship be what determines its moral goodness rather than the gender of those involved in it? A promiscuous gay lifestyle with multiple partners and one-night stands might be wrong, but two people who love each other and are faithful to whatever promises they have made—surely that’s OK?... continue reading

The cover was golden brown and green and spread with a spidery map, adorned with little scenes in which girls and boys stood alongside winged horses and bearded dwarfs. From the top corner the dark face of a lion stared out at me.... continue reading

We still try and talk about Jesus. We still invite people to church. But the joy has gone. We have given up even trying anymore. Is the command to make disciples of all nations simply far too ambitious? Let’s take four steps and see what happens when we apply them to Jesus’ command in Matthew 28 v 19 to Go and make disciples of all nations.... continue reading

When Evangelism Feels Impossible: Coming to Jesus Before Going to Make Disciples

Jonty Allcock | June 3rd 2019

When I hear that from the lips of Jesus, I feel just as weak and overwhelmed as the first eleven disciples standing on the mountain. I’m daunted as I look at the sheer numbers of people who have never heard about Jesus in our world. In fact, come to that, I’m daunted by the number of people who live on my street.
