The Supreme Court Ruling...
The Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage in all 50 states. This ruling has been a left hook to those who follow God via scripture and their personal convictions. Shortly after the ruling, the church has responded. Here is a snippet to "Here We Stand: An Evangelical Declaration on Marriage."
As evangelical Christians, we dissent from the court’s ruling that redefines marriage.
The state did not create the family, and should not try to recreate the family in its own image. We will not capitulate on marriage because biblical authority requires that we cannot. The outcome of the Supreme Court’s ruling to redefine marriage represents what seems like the result of a half-century of witnessing marriage’s decline through divorce, cohabitation, and a worldview of almost limitless sexual freedom. The Supreme Court’s actions pose incalculable risks to an already volatile social fabric by alienating those whose beliefs about marriage are motivated by deep biblical convictions and concern for the common good.
Evangelical churches must be faithful to the biblical witness on marriage regardless of the cultural shift.
Evangelical churches in America now find themselves in a new moral landscape that calls us to minister in a context growing more hostile to a biblical sexual ethic. This is not new in the history of the church. From its earliest beginnings, whether on the margins of society or in a place of influence, the church is defined by the gospel. We insist that the gospel brings good news to all people, regardless of whether the culture considers the news good or not.
