Evangelicals don’t always agree on matters of theology. But our role at the Alliance is to reflect the diversity of opinion rather than impose an artificial consensus. Our Theology and Public Policy Advisory Commission (TAPPAC) works for a biblical consensus on controversial issues. It steps in where division threatens evangelical unity, or where a public issue needs a theological basis for a united evangelical response. TAPPAC helps our advocacy team identify hot topics, forms specialist task groups for an evangelical perspective on the issues and comments on all the work undertaken by the team.
So, we recognise that:
- views which seem contradictory can sometimes be complementary
- differences are sometimes exaggerated by history, which can lead to a failure to understand the language or the perspective of the other side
- nevertheless, some differences are genuine and real, and need to be recognised as such.
