There is no neutral ground in the Bible. The Bible tells us that we either work for God or for Satan. Evil always tries to hide within truth. Should it not, it would be quickly exposed. Evil always pleads for tolerance until it has the upper hand than it demands conformity to evil…evil never rests.
The plea for tolerance will one day be an intrusion upon all that is good. Karl Marx would be jumping for joy, for he stated that for Communism to succeed the family, religion, and marriage had to be destroyed and public education was the method by which success was possible. Marx has completely succeeded on every front and now evil turns to religion.
This is an excerpt from an article by Erick Erickson:
The left will allow no fence sitting on the issue of gay marriage. You may not believe me. You may think me hyperbolic. But the history of the world shows this. Events ultimately come to a head. They boil to their essence. And at that point you must choose.
That is why so many Christians are fighting. Because we see in Europe and Canada what will happen here. Christianity is a religion of the city square. Christ compels us to “go forth and teach.” It is the Great Commission. We cannot go forth and teach when the left bars us from the town square. Many people say we should have legal gay marriage, but not have religious gay marriage.
The left will not honor the distinction. Look to Canada. Preachers can be brought up for hate crimes charges merely for discussing passages of the Bible that deal with same sex sexual relations. You may not care that it is a sin, but the world surely does.
Look at Louie Giglio, who could not honor the President at his inauguration because of his orthodox Christian beliefs on this subject.
In short, you may choose not to care and in so doing sit on the sidelines or give aid and comfort to the open minded and tolerant who want gay marriage so everyone can have equal rights.
But the world will one day make you care. Your church, should it open its doors to all, but refuse to perform a same sex wedding, will be accused of discrimination. In some places, the church will be forced to stop performing weddings. Many churches will lose their tax exempt status. The costs of sharing the gospel will go up.
Already Christians are being harassed by fellow American citizens for not wanting to participate in a gay marriage. The time will come, more quickly than you can imagine, when you will be made to care.
