Those in high profile positions such as the Archbishop of Canterbury have a level of responsibility placed upon them that few of us will experience in this life. His recent New Year message was broadcast on the BBC and raises some thought provoking questions with regard to the role of the church in our culture and what the Gospel is really all about. Whilst it’s easy to pass comment from the sidelines, sometimes incisive comment is required if it draws attention to serious issues that would otherwise pass many by. Gavin Ashenden manages to do just that.
Faced with either being faithful to Scripture and tradition, and challenging the perversities of a culture that rejects Christian values, or making secular accommodation, he has chosen accommodation.
