France’s first same-sex wedding was held this week. The latest New Yorker’s Mother’s Day cover pictures a lesbian couple reading a card from their three children in their kitchen. Since last March, when the Supreme Court heard arguments over same-sex marriage, three more states have legalized gay marriage.
Yesterday (May 30), Dr. Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, stated that “no issue defines our current cultural crisis as clearly as homosexuality.” He adds: “Within a few short years, a major dividing line has become evident — with those churches endorsing homosexuality on one side, and those stubbornly resisting the cultural tide on the other.” I agree.
I could write a Cultural Commentary every day on topics related to homosexuality — that’s how pervasive this issue has become. If I did, would you soon tire of reading what I wrote? Have you grown weary of this subject, as important as it is?
I’m grateful for every believer who is willing to take a biblical stand in this debate and defend Scripture by “speaking the truth in love” (Ephesians 4:15). At the same time, I fear that we are in danger of allowing this controversy to distract us from the larger issue. In 1973, psychiatrist Karl Menninger wrote a book titled Whatever Became of Sin?

Taking a stand against this abomination is not easy. It means leaving my church if the PCUSA goes completely down the Bible be damned road ( which appears likely next year). Christianity is under attack from all sides in this country and not enough people seem to care.
Hey Fred. I got news for you. The PCUSA has already redefined marriage. Last October the GA Permanent Judicial Commission ruled in favor of a self-avowed practicing lesbian ordained minister, Rev. McNeil. Don’t you remember? What about the 1 percent of all dues now to the Board of Pensions going to fund abortions beginning day 1 of this year? That’s the God of Molech. Oh what about the 7 years of cursing Israel? What are you waiting for? Get out! Take a stand! The PCUSA and every pastor, elder, deacon, member and participant is under a curse! Repent means leave!
