Conversion is at the heart of the Christian gospel and life. We believe that we are all born in sin and need radical transformation in every department of our lives in order to be pleasing to God. All our desires are corrupted by our sinful nature and we all need to be converted and transformed by the grace of God. Banning conversion "therapy" (so-called) is equivalent to banning the message of the gospel. Let us pray that our God will be merciful, and that the letter from the Christian Institute will cause Rishi Sunak to consider carefully and refuse to back any such ban.
