A BIBLICAL VISION FOR SOCIETY

JUBILEE CENTRE E-NEWS

January 2012

In this E-News:

Dear Houghton
2012 looks to be a year of major challenges for Britain, the EU and many other countries round the world.  As I take on the leadership of the Jubilee Centre I am keenly aware of the responsibility we have as Christians to think our way, love our way, and pray our way through these challenging times wisely and faithfully.  Our aim in the Jubilee Centre is to help you do these things through our biblical research and responses to current issues in society.  Please browse through the wide range of resources on our website, and don’t hesitate to contact us if we can help you further.

New Cambridge Paper: Free sex: Who pays?

Guy Brandon argues that significant costs of ‘sexual freedom’ are imposed on society as a whole, rather than borne solely by the individuals most directly involved. This represents an enormous moral hazard and, as a result, unsustainable and unjust public expenditure. The paper explores ways to address this, the most compelling of which is the Bible’s emphasis on rootedness and group responsibility. Read and comment on the paper in the resources section of our website.

A Christian Response to Immigration

We have written a short and easy-to-read booklet, A Christian Response to Immigration, available to download for free from the website. This draws on and updates our earlier work on immigration, hoping to challenge some of the misconceptions we regularly see and hear repeated in the news. Read more…

Transforming Capitalism from Within

The report Transforming Capitalism from Within by Jonathan Rushworth and Michael Schluter (pictured) suggests that, rather than seeking solutions to systemic instability in the political sphere through regulatory or tax responses, we should seek changes in the structure and conduct of stakeholder relationships.

Other news and comment

Cameron’s religion and the Archbishop’s politics
We pointed to the fact that politicians acknowledge the key role that the Christian faith plays as salt and light in our society. Even as society turns its back on those Christian values, secular commentators nevertheless criticise the church for not playing more of a role in challenging what everyone sees as a decline. Read more…

The media’s false prophets
We drew a (perhaps) surprising comparison between the prophets in Old Testament times and the role of the media as it was unfolded by the Leveson Inquiry. Read more…
Affordable housing
Encouraging stability in families might also help address the country’s lack of affordable homes. Read more…

‘…whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it – not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it – they will be blessed in what they do.’ (James 1:25, NIV)
