The Anti-Christ Message of Steve Chalke

As I was preparing to preach on Romans 4 for this morning I was struck by these words from verse three – “What does Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”   I read in the commentaries the emphasis on the fact that Paul regarded the whole of the bible as Scripture.  As I looked forward to proclaiming that this … Continue reading The Anti-Christ Message of Steve Chalke

The Re-Imaging of Humanity – Part 5 – Where Are We Heading?

This is the final part of my talk given to the Solas conference on Society and Sexuality.
