John Hayward, June 2009
Our latest Cambridge Paper, Enhancing Humans or a New Creation?, considers three levels of enhancement: the trivial (includes vaccination and contact lenses), the conventional (includes cosmetic surgery and the non-therapeutic use of drugs for cognitive enhancement), and the transhumanist. It concludes that, although trivial and conventional enhancements represent no threat to Christian faith, the kind of self-help through technology offered by transhumanism stands in stark contrast to the human transformation and positive relational alternative that is found in Christ.

The first letter to the Corinthians was written to believers who shared our modern confusion over standards of sexual conduct. The three chapters covered by this set of three studies grapple with deeply personal issues. In it, we discover a message of hope, that in Christ we can live a rich and fulfilling relational life that satisfies the needs both of us as individuals and of those around us. Explore with us as we seek to understand not just ‘what is permissible’, but what is fair and best for us and wider society and, ultimately, what brings glory to God.

How can we measure the extent to which we are realising our vision of a movement of organisations, churches and individual Christians advancing a coherent and positively-stated biblical social agenda that is of benefit to the whole of society?

The affirmation of ethnic diversity can give the individual believer and the local congregation a sense of cohesion and belonging. Yet, if ethnicity becomes a primary criterion defining identity, we risk marginalising ethnic minorities. This paper brings the twin principles of unity and diversity to bear on four contexts: the individual Christian, the local congregation, the global church and the church in society. In each case, it advocates the celebration of both the unity of how being in Christ sees ethnic differences disappear and the diversity that emerges in understanding and respecting ethnic differences amongst believers.
