Who will govern us now?

There is no such thing in this sinful world as a perfect political party or an infallible political philosophy. We are dealing with men — men’s thoughts and opinions, men’s hopes and aspirations, men’s plans and intentions — so there is nothing spotless here. When considering how to vote, there are always pros and…

The Cambridge Declaration of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals

Evangelical churches today are increasingly dominated by the spirit of this age rather than by the Spirit of Christ. As evangelicals, we call ourselves to repent of this sin and to recover the historic Christian faith. In the course of history words change. In our day this has happened to the word 'evangelical'. In…

Helping children flourish

One of the worst effects of sin is that we become people of extremes. This is true, not least in the context of our children. We may be spineless and permissive and tend to spoil them; or else, if we do have some sense of authority and discipline, we go to the other extreme…

The Making of many Bibles

Martin Luther's 'outlaw' period, as he hid in the Wartburg castle masquerading as the mysterious 'Squire George', provided him a venue to fulfil a long-held desire: the translation of the New Testament into German. He believed (in the words of historian Owen Chadwick) that 'The ploughman ought to be able to recite the Scriptures…

Why he signed it

Dr J. I. Packer has put us all in his debt through his writings. Fundamentalism and the Word of God, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God, Knowing God, God's Words, Hot Tub Religion and Among God's Giants should be on every Christian's shelves.

Letter from America: What of these people?

As the aircraft gently lifts off from Chicago, it leaves behind one of the busiest airports in the world. At first, it heads out over Lake Michigan before turning sharply around and flying back over Chicago. It is already dark outside, as I sit with my head pressed against the small window. Below, the…

Hymns for today’s churches

A National Scandal

The National Lottery is a national scandal. It is State-sponsored selfishness; Government-led worship at the shrine of godless gain. Speaking ethically, gambling is immoral. It is an attempt to get something for nothing, a means of gaining a living not by honest labour but at the expense of others. It is a moral disease,…
