EU and prophecy
Our April-May issue proved so popular, with orders from all around the country, that we ran out of copies and even at the time of printing this issue calls were coming in for new orders as people passed the April-May issue around.
Most reactions were positive, such as the Surrey vicar who said it was the best publication he had seen in 30 years of ministry and the lady from Kingston who had been sent a copy and emailed to say, “I agreed with every word. Please send me 50 copies.”

Aisling’s case: abortion is a crime against humanity
I have been studying the case of Aisling Hubert, the pro-life campaigner whose private prosecution of two doctors was closed down by the Crown Prosecution Service (HEART, Feb-Mar 2016), leaving her with £50,000 of costs to pay.
Christianity is a force for good
I am concerned that the faith inquiry chaired by Baroness Butler-Sloss is calling for an end to Christian assemblies in schools and for public life to be “de-Christianised.”
It’s hard to understand the hostility towards Christianity, as it has many benefits to society. Our Judeo-Christian Ten Commandments teach that no-one should steal, lie, or murder; that we should be honest in business, care for each other, be good workers, honour our parents, respect older people, be kind to animals and forgive others.
Is Islam a religion of peace?
In the last HEART issue (February/March) regular columnist Dr Clifford Hill claimed
(‘Islam and Peace’): “It is becoming increasingly difficult for Muslims to go on claiming
that Islam is a religion of peace.” Here are some readers’ responses:
A ‘hotline’ to God
IN YOUR LAST ISSUE Rosemary C Biggs doubted the headline ‘Back from the brink’ over the Scottish referendum result and whether the leaders you quoted had a ‘hotline’ to God.
It seems this sister is not acquainted with the gifts of the Spirit which may well inform the body of Christ about what to pray for.
Back from the brink?
I WAS VERY CONCERNED when I read your headline, ‘Back from the brink – did prayer keep our kingdom united?‘ The suggestion that the decision on the Scottish Referendum was the result of prayer being offered against a ‘No’ vote is, to me, rather worrying.
The Tory party at prayer
The last two issues of your publication have included prospective MPs the Rev Clive Hickman and Caroline Ansell (my wife!), and prospective MEP Donna Edmunds, all of whom are Christians who have entered the murky world of politics – and quite right too!
In this world of increasing secularisation, and with significant ethical issues around birth, marriage and death raising their head, it is important to have Christians in the heart of decision making, both at Westminster and in the town halls around the country.
