A few quick thoughts on the #SCOTUS same-sex marriage decision

Stream of consciousness…

This is not a moral 9/11. We long ago passed that point.

This is not the end of the Republic. Rome lasted far longer with a much more egregious culture.

This is not the end of Christ’s church. Are you kidding me??

This decision did not turn the U.S. into theĀ Sudan or an ISIS controlled area, re: persecution.

If you consider this to be an abominable ruling, please place it wherever you stored Manifest Destiny and Dred Scott.

 

If you are a follower of Christ…

Take a moment to pray for your gay friends, neighbors and coworkers.

Take a moment to pray for your pastor, and yourself.

Remember our authority for the mission, power to serve God and joy in doing so has never–not even in the heyday of the Moral Majority–been found in congressional legislationĀ or Supreme Court rulings.

Are you missing the so-called “Christian nation”? Don’t sorrow. Most of our brothers and sisters in the world don’t live in “Christians nations” either. Most never have. The Kingdom marches on.

Re-read the gospels and the book of Acts. Then, as you go, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit. And, teach them all the things Jesus commanded us.

You are the light of the world.

Shine.
