The great English poet and literary critic G. K. Chesterton once said, “When people stop believing in God, they don’t believe in nothing — they believe in anything.”

How right he was.

Three recent headlines have demonstrated just how absurd things are becoming in post-Christian Australia — and how important the role of a party like Australian Christians is for the restoration of Christian values in our nation.

The first story, from ABC News, tells of Western Australian real estate agent Tony Maddox, who is facing up to nine months in jail and a $20,000 fine for building a creek crossing on his property, in an alleged breach of the WA Aboriginal Heritage Act.

What’s absurd is the reason why he is being charged:

The prosecution claimed the works, which included the removal of a large amount of silt from the Boyagerring Brook running through his property, disrupted the Waugul — a rainbow serpent central to Noongar mythology.

The prosecution’s statement of facts states that any alteration to the Waugul’s home could scare it from the water, causing it to dry up and causing harm to the surrounding environment and people.

Christians are sometimes accused of being superstitious or are mocked for believing in a spiritual realm. In truth, the introduction of Christianity in countries like Australia paved the way for law, order, literacy, healthcare, democracy, science and technology, and much more besides.

It was Christianity’s emphasis on a law-giving God who created an orderly universe that pushed back the superstitious beliefs of animism, and gave people the intellectual furniture and the courage to build advanced nations from scratch, as happened in Australia in the last two centuries.

As Christianity retreats from Australian society, it is evident that old superstitions are returning.

The second story concerns the Department of Health and Aged Care asserting that it’s not just women who have a cervix.

The Daily Declaration reports that the department’s National Cervical Screening Program portal encourages “women and people with a cervix aged 25 to 74 years of age” to have a cervical screening test every five years.

As the story notes, “Since ancient times, we have known that women have a cervix and men do not. So who are the other ‘people’ Australia’s peak health body could possibly be referring to? And what strange alchemy led them to believe that non-women can also posses a cervix?”

The words of Genesis 1:27 — which state that “God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them” — have been an anchor for Christian civilisation for almost two millennia. In more recent centuries, biology has confirmed Scripture’s longstanding claims about sexual dimorphism.

Now, as Christianity retreats from the West, our society is abandoning the basic facts of anatomy, and starting to lose its grip on reality.

The third is the tragic loss of eight babies in just the first six months of South Australia’s new abortion laws.

Flagged by an open letter from pro-life advocate Dr Joanna Howe to the state’s Premier and Opposition Leader. Dr Howe writes:

In the first 6 months of South Australia’s new abortion up to birth laws, 10 gestationally viable babies were killed after 23 weeks and until birth.

8 of these babies were perfectly healthy and killed in non-emergency situations.

Why were these South Australians not induced alive and given medical care?

Why were they brutally killed in-utero and delivered stillborn?

Ironically, while the laws were being debated, South Australia’s lower house was assured by then Attorney-General Vicki Chapman that healthy, viable babies would not be killed for a mental health reason affecting the mother — yet that is precisely what has been taking place now that the laws are in effect.

It was Christians in ancient Rome who scoured the streets and trash heaps to rescue abandoned babies, ultimately transforming the soul of the empire until the practice of infanticide was outlawed.

Thanks to Christianity, abortion was taboo — and essentially illegal — throughout most of Western history. But in late decades, abortion has incrementally been re-legalised, even for the most extreme cases, as now seen in South Australia.

Ours is a nation in need of God again. Chesterton was right: we abandon Christianity at our peril. Rejecting the Christian God doesn’t result in progress — it just invites the old gods back, along with superstition and barbarism.

Australian Christians exists to reverse that trend.

For the record, we don’t believe that people should go to jail for offending rainbow serpents, or that men have a cervix, or that unborn babies deserve to be killed!

We stand for faith, family, freedom and life — and we invite you to join us in the fight for a revived Australia.

Take a stand against the inhumane treatment of babies and children.
