Roydon Ng reflects on an interesting fortnight in Australia where politics, society and faith spectacularly collided with Graham, Peterson and Pell
As Christians seeking to make the most out of difficult political situations, we have the assurance that we don’t go in our strength, but prayerfully we have the support of the Jesus Christ because He is the One who has authority over heaven and earth.
It’s not about whether you Vote 1 for a left or right wing party, Jesus cares about whether you’ve made Him number 1 in your life…
Perhaps it’s wise to stop asking ‘why I didn’t report it’ but treat every claim seriously through a due process. Churches ought to be a place of hope and it can once again shine in the community as a beacon of such hope if it can heal among itself through the Holy Spirit.
Christianity is worth fighting for. There is so much that we owe to Christianity, it can be described as a debt that many in the world are either naive or blatantly ignorant about.
As Australia grows in wealth, we are becoming an increasingly individualistic society – one that seeks less and less to relate to the community around us as well as growing distant from our Christian heritage.

Much of the Western world may have forsaken its Christian heritage and abandoned it for liberalism instead, but increasingly it is the ‘global south’ that is leading the way for the Gospel.
When more people live as if they were “the temple of the Holy Spirit” in honour of God our creator (1 Corinthians chapter 6 verses 19 to 20), wouldn’t our society be a better place?
Let’s ask, test and seek the truth so that we can have a firm grasp not to keep it for ourselves but to be a bearer of the Good News of Christ into the world.
