This is exciting news for Christians, ministers and Christian organisations. You’re not alone anymore. There is now a human rights organisation in Australia that will provide pro bono (free) legal advice if you’re threatened with legal trouble because of your Christian identity or beliefs.
However that’s not an invitation to be stupid or look for trouble. There are still huge risks to be navigated wisely, but courage and wisdom are key. Watch this episode to be better informed about our changing culture and the solutions available to us all.
There is such a lot of misunderstanding about what “the separation of Church and State” means. Dave explains its origins to help us better understand what it means to us today.
Martyn Iles and Dave Pellowe discuss human rights, and the exploding need for an advocate for Christians in the legal system as religious persecution increases with the weaponisation of state-based anti-discrimination tribunals.
In a society that no longer values truth as an obtainable and worthy aspiration, Christian values are being wrongly perceived as an attack on those who don’t share them. And some people are attacking “back”.
Amid the many voices and agendas competing for your attention, an independent, Christian voice is more crucial than ever.
Our mission at Church And State is to help you to be better informed by discussing & debating issues from a Biblical worldview with facts, evidence and logic, so that together we can love our 24 million neighbours with better policy.
As a viewer-funded project we can't be bullied by boycotts, but we do depend on people like you partnering with us. Many hands make light work, so for just $3 per month, will you help us continue this important work?
Martyn Iles and Dave Pellowe discuss how the legal system has changed from believing in natural law, given by God and discovered by men, to positive law, given by human authority and made by men, and how that has diminished the value of truth.
Martyn Iles explains how a young person (or anyone) can be courageous in their faith without being cavalier and recklessly looking for trouble in this world that’s looking for a fight.
