The Christian Institute has called on the UK’s political parties to re-engage with Christians as it launches Election Briefing 2019.
The briefing offers an analysis of party policies on many issues that matter to Christians as they consider how to vote on 12 December.
It provides clear and concise information on key subjects including freedom of speech, religious liberty, marriage and the sanctity of life. It is available online today at christian.org.uk/election
The 48-page booklet addresses threats to free speech and the risk of weaker laws on abortion, divorce, illegal drugs and assisted suicide.
Instead of repeating election spin, it highlights what the parties have actually said and done.
As Christians we must challenge those seeking our vote, those who want to run the country, and make sure they understand our concerns.
Colin Hart, The Christian Institute’s Director, said: “As Christians we must challenge those seeking our vote, those who want to run the country, and make sure they understand our concerns.
“Across the United Kingdom the concerns of the many who want to uphold marriage and the family, protect the elderly and unborn, and celebrate the God-given differences between men and women are being ignored.”
Mr Hart added: “I call on Christians to pray for ‘all those in authority’. Pray they may have wisdom to make the right decisions when in power.
“Pray too that we may continue to be allowed the freedom to live godly lives and have liberty to share the Gospel.”
