Today we start to apply the Christian worldview to government and think about how that might cut across distinctions of ‘left’ and ‘right’. Also a reflection on the battle for reality and Romans 3v1-8 – the God of truth. I’d just like to add, before anyone else does, I wasn’t very happy with the way […]
