No time for Christ
Anglican evangelicals failed to secure a debate on a Private Member’s Motion about the ‘uniqueness of Christ’ in a multicultural society. The motion had enough signatures to merit a debate but was ruled out by church leaders at the recent General Synod in York, who said that there was not enough time.
There is suspicion, however, that the debate was prevented to avoid embarrassing Britain’s Muslim community and other faiths by having the established church issue a call to evangelise or convert them. It is that kind of duplicity which makes life difficult for evangelicals within the Church of England.
