There are currently over three million people in Iraq who have been forced to flee their homes due to the violence and destruction caused by Isis and other internal sectarian conflicts. The country is also hosting some 250,000 of the millions of refugees who have fled the war in Syria.
The shocking, sickening scene of a young man nailed to a wooden cross, surrounded by his executioners, shouting abuse and laughing whilst crowds of others watch in horrified silence, is an image that is indelibly stamped onto the minds of all Christians.
When I read the findings from this report, I was confused and saddened, to me, Heaven and God go hand in hand. You cannot have Heaven without God- they're inseparable, synonymous. God created Heaven and Heaven is for real.
I don't know the truth about Judas and no one ever will. But I believe it's our task to look at him with Jesus' eyes -- and before any Christian ever again says a word against Judaism, it would be wise to remember that we follow a guy who also was a Jew.
Over the last weekend those of us of a leftish persuasion could be found celebrating the contribution the Diggers made to British politics at the Well...
I know, I know, the best way to treat attention-seeking people like Britain First is to ignore them. Don't give them and their disgraceful campaign any oxygen and hopefully they'll eventually go away. But when something that is deeply important to me is being so monumentally misused, I can't keep it zipped any more.
Last month's Primates Conference saw 38 leaders of the Anglican Church travel to Canterbury to discuss the status of LGBT people within the Anglican C...
On Thursday 18th February, Pope Francis added his soporific voice to the American Presidential Election soap-opera by openly criticising Republican fr...
Donald Trump, I can love you as a brother, I can see the wounded human being in your eyes. But I really don't think you - or anyone who believes in excluding the hurt, the poor, the different from the "accepted norm" or anyone who disagrees with your version of "the truth" - can be a Christian.
Being Dan Walker must be so bizarre. I wonder if he feels sorry for the rest of us or is just a bit smug that he and a select few others will be going to heaven? I wonder if he wants to save us or just realises there is no point because we are all beyond redemption?
Across many universities beside York, from St. Andrews to Chester, university Christian Unions are known for their regular acts of goodwill and their members' enthusiasm. 'Grilling a Christian' is not the first time that the University of York's Christian Union has hosted an atypical event on campus and it won't be the last.
Your government's pledge to fund is important to all Syrians wherever they are, but money in itself will not be enough. Host governments need to be encouraged to make policy changes that will help refugees regain hope: hope that their daily lives can be lived with dignity and hope that one day soon they will be able to go home.
If, ten years ago, someone had told me that I would be the person I am today, I would not have believed them. I've developed in completely unexpected ways. I've tried to take advantage of every opportunity. I've successfully faced challenges.
Following my visits to faith schools, without exception I ask young people whether they feel their faith is a barrier to learning about LGBT+ people and the damage prejudicial attitudes can cause.Without exception they assure me that their faith tells them to love, to respect and to take care of people.
The international response to what took place and what continues to take place is both a travesty and injustice. Hundreds of thousands of Innocent men, women and children fled to neighbouring countries such as Chad and Cameroon but more than 600,000 people remain displaced inside the country with many trapped inside enclaves they cannot escape.
On 28 August 2014 I sponsored a puppy called Angel. Angel is a gorgeous golden retriever. She is yellow, furry and confident. Angel is being trained as a guide dog. I'm sent regular "pupdates" by the Guide Dogs, a charity which does important and massively empowering work.
