The President is Wrong

Ok, I have to get this off my chest.  The President of the United States is wrong!  Same-sex marriage is a violation of biblical truth.  His recent declaration that his view has evolved over the last few years is both misleading and untruthful.  It is my opinion (yes, I'm issuing an opinion because I don't have "proof") that he is taking this stance in an effort to gain the gay vote in the upcoming election.  He knows he is in trouble and could easily lose this fall.  His voter base has been backing away from him, so he had to reach out to another segment of the population.  His decision is not based on principle - it is based on lust for power and prestige.

For years our country has been headed down the path of other great cultures that have fallen over time.  It is time for the Church to stand for what is right and for us to say "NO" to the cultural drift.  But let me say that the change will not take place in the courts or in the legislature.  It will take place if we get serious about our calling to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) in the spirit of the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:37).  The only way for our nation and our world to change will be for the Church to make disciples seriously.  We have allowed the spiritual slippage that has taken place.  Let's take back the territory that we have given up over time.  Let the Church be the Church!
