RSE – What UK Parents, Grandparents, Carers (and in fact Everyone who cares about Children) needs to know

The way that traditional values have been slowly eroded over past decades and are now increasingly and aggressively derided and forced out of our society cannot have escaped any Christian, and so it is more and more important that in following Christ’s reminder in Matthew 5:13-16 to be ‘Salt & Light’, that we ensure we’re equipped.

As a Church New Connexions does everything we can to help you with that equipping: in our preaching, teaching, studying together, prayer, fellowship and care for one another we seek The Lord’s leading and to be obedient to Him. We also ensure that current issues which require our attention are posted on our Twitter Page, but we are also thankful to the Lord for the many people and organisations who are involved in ministries sharing and caring for Christians in this land. In particular this post is indebted to Roger Kiska and the team at Christian Concern for providing the short video below. Please do watch it and also share it as widely as you possibly can.

This is one of many, many areas where our society is under attack (for others see our Twitter Page), please keep informed, keep lobbying and keep sharing. Also please keep praying, stay strong in the battle, and praise God for His goodness!

House group Questions on Mark 10 v 1-12

Here is the sermon in case you missed it:  God’s Plan For Marriage and Family

  1. Read the passage then think of other places in the Old and New Testament where relationships play a central role.(Examples you might use in addition to those mentioned in the sermon: 1 Corinthians 7, Matthew 19, Song of Solomon, Colossians 3 etc.).
  2. In the light of those passages you’ve discussed, how would you answer the 2 questions posed by            a) the Pharisees (v2) and b) Jesus (v3)?
  3. Turn to Genesis 1 v 27 (a).What was God’s plan for men and women? Is it any different today? Discuss the complexities that the world brings to this discussion.
  4. What is the point of marriage? Why are some of us called to be single ?(Paul offers plenty on this).What are the main challenges for Christian single people and married couples in 2018?
  5. The disciples had lots more questions for Jesus (v 10). We will also be faced with questions from believers/non-believers. What advice should we be giving to :                                                                         a)those about to marry; b)those divorcing/divorced; c)those attracted to people of the same sex?
  6. Pray together using Colossians 3 v 12-18 about the body of Christ as a lead in.
