Do Not Be a Cowardly Fool

It is surprising to see people who are invested full-time in Christian missionary or social work so confused. Witness:

World Vision: Why We’re Hiring Gay Christians in Same-Sex Marriages  and

World Vision Reverses Decision To Hire Christians in Same-Sex Marriages.

Here’s a quote from article #1:

“It’s easy to read a lot more into this decision than is really there,” he said. “This is not an endorsement of same-sex marriage. We have decided we are not going to get into that debate. Nor is this a rejection of traditional marriage, which we affirm and support.”

Let not any Christian think he will avoid testifying. We will all be called to be accountable to the rulers of popular opinion. We will not have the opportunity to avoid the question. We will not escape into obscurity.

There is no third way.

We will have to testify as to whether we are pro-gay marriage, or not. And the question will be that simple.

Or whether we are haters, bigots and the hated marginalized. The test will not be on our terms, and there is no third option.

The litmus test is:

Do you believe that people should be free to love?

Do you believe that everyone should be entitled to marry the person of his choice?

We must decide now whether we will stand for the truth or whether we will become trash. If we do not stand firm and tell what is True, we will at first receive a nod of approval from the social arbiters.

But then we will quickly be brushed aside as inconsequential, and that will be true. We will be irrelevant; we will have joined the ranks of enablers, to be used when useful.

We will have lost our distinctiveness from the world.

If we do not speak the truth, then we speak lies.

And we will be trash because we are no longer of use to the Truth either.

You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless. Matthew 5:13

    It just breaks my heart. Some leadership, some people gently standing up for the Truth, is so needed in the world right now. It’s really hard to express and explain why preserving and protecting traditional marriage is so important, but it is, on so many levels. Where I live many churches, one right after the other, have publically endorsed gay marriage and refused to hear any debate or discussion as to why that might be a problem. Being a woman makes it especially painful I suppose. When your leadership isn’t there, it’s a bit like free falling through the universe.

    Feelingly said. It’s the real watershed, and will result in all kinds of re-grouping. But that’s probably not a bad thing, though painful.

    “For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.” Maybe the church isn’t as big as we think it is. If the elect won’t fall for miraculous signs and wonders from the antichrist why would they fall for the absurd fantasy of “gay” marriage? Maybe God is separating the wheat from the chaff. Just a thought.
