Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Study Shows Majority of British Catholics Now Support Abortion

Recommended Posts

A majority of Catholic Brits now are in favor of abortion, according to a new survey. This may come as a surprise to many, seeing as the Catholic Church has historically maintained a firm stance against abortion.

That article is misleading, as it misses out the large caveat included in the survey itself ( PDF here). If you go to the original study the article quotes, the notes include the following:

"Note that small sample sizes mean caution should be used when looking at figures for the Roman Catholic group in 2012 and 2016, and the Non-Christian group."

 

Also right underneath the Abortion entry is:

"However, we need to treat these within-Christianity trends with some caution as the sample sizes are small."

 

What is disturbing is that they couldn't find enough Christians in their survey sample for valid population-wide statistical trends to be identified. The survey admits their sample sizes were so small that the percentage swing could be entirely down to what individuals they got, and not identify a trend at all.
