Election 2019 – 12 December#GE2019

A General Election provides an opportunity for Christians to speak out and play their part in voting. Believers have to make a judgment about how their vote can be used to best effect.

A new Parliament could vote on laws liberalising divorce, abortion and drugs; laws affecting religious liberty, freedom of speech, transgender rights and teaching on marriage, sex and relationships in schools. These are all issues of concern to Christians.

The Christian Institute is a registered charity and we do not tell you how to vote. But we can provide some useful information to inform that vote.

It is unlikely that you will find a party or a candidate you believe has all the right views. For many Christians there is a genuine dilemma over choosing a party or a particular candidate. Weigh the evidence and exercise your Christian conscience.
