Christians are under pressure (if not under attack) for their views on same-sex marriage, gender identity and other related topics. Those who stand up for Biblical values on sexuality and marriage are accused of being divisive or worse!
This is a very good blog from Stand to Reason that we recommend reading – The Pragmatic Benefits of God-Given Sexual Boundaries.
It is ‘reason’ that many people struggle with as Christianity is usually singled out as the problem in our ‘modern’ culture. It is welcoming to read some rational thoughts on this subject that have become over-complicated and driven by ’emotion’ more than reason.
As sexual scandals now dominate our news media it should be obvious to see that there is clearly something wrong in society that is not going to be fixed by human means. We shudder to think what the next scandal will bring as people’s dark secrets are now being brought into the light. The moral standard of our current society is hitting new lows as we tolerate and celebrate all that falls way below God’s standards. As the blog says: “God designed sex, and the beauty of the plan is displayed more profoundly when the failures of not following it are staggeringly obvious.”
The good news is that God hasn’t changed and His truth is there for anyone who genuinely wants it. Expect more dark secrets to be revealed as God is lifting the lid on this immoral world that defiantly opposes all that God has created for our good.
Therefore do not fear them. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. (Matthew 10:26)
