Notable Quotable: “It Will Be the Church’s Responsibility to Honor Marriage, No Matter What the Supreme Court May Decide” – Al Mohler

“For Christians, the issue of marriage is not merely a legal or constitutional issue. The Bible reveals marriage to be the sacred union of a man and a woman for a lifetime. The goods of marriage are revealed to be intimacy, union, companionship, friendship, procreation, children, and a host of related gifts. Christians must see marriage as essential for human flourishing and not open for human negotiation.

“The very fact that the march for same-sex marriage has reached this point is telling. It reveals a fundamental confusion at the very heart of our society. The ideological support for same-sex marriage is deeply embedded in a host of ideas that are driving our society to the point of moral breakdown.

“The U.S. Supreme Court may well decide the future of marriage as a legal institution, but the church must hold to marriage as far more, but not less than, a legal reality. Marriage is one of God’s most gracious gifts to humanity. It will be the Church’s responsibility to honor marriage, no matter what the Court may decide.”

  1. Thanks for posting this Tony. Very good and a call that no matter what may transpire in the world, our responsibility (not to mention safety and protection from God) lies in honoring Christ and His Word.

  2. I totally agree. It is also imperative that Pastors start preaching and teaching about the sanctity of marriage and speaking out against divorce with the same fervency that we stand against the practice of homosexuality.
    The church has lost much of its preserving power in the world today although it is seeking to evangelizing the world. The problem is that the church needs to be evangelized. It has lost its understanding of holy living so we need to return to those teachings and it has to start in the pulpits. Pastors have to start naming what is sin and what is dangerous. They have to start spelling out the things to those who name the name of Christ and what we are doing wrong. Judgment starts at the household of God and we need to start with ourselves and shine the light on what we are doing wrong less we be totally trampled under foot of men.
