Writing at The Washington Post, Dr. Al Mohler reflects upon the rapid moral decline of the past decade. Noting that, “Homosexuality is now at the center of American life, and the full normalization of homosexual relationships seems just around the corner,” Mohler reminds that the purpose and the convictions of the Christian do not change with the whims of politics or society.
In terms of the cultural tide, evangelical Christians have every reason to feel left behind. Thoughtful evangelicals must realize the depth of our predicament. Political parties have platforms, but Christians must be driven by biblical convictions. Platforms may change, but convictions remain. Evangelicals do not believe that homosexuality is sinful because it is part of our platform, but because it is a conviction drawn from Scripture.
