The church needs to follow the will of God. Following the will of the people will bring nothing but trouble. After all there’s a reason why the Bible says there’s a way that seems right to a man but in the end it leads to death.
Just because a person’s ideas differ with yours does not make them inferior. We don’t need to belittle people to advance our cause. In case you think I am wrong consider that this was the first action Hitler used in his campaign against the Jewish people. If we cannot speak the truth in love, we probably ought to just shut up and we certainly should never join with those who dehumanize.
In a world where everything shifts and changes and very little seems dependable, you can ALWAYS depend on God. Ge is the same yesterday, today and forever. Trust HIm and believe Him.
I don’t have my head in the sand and I’m not a total reactionary, but to take Darwin’s theory over the biblical account, leaves us in a strange place. We take survival of the fittest and natural selection over love and grace. We take random and accidental existence over lives with purpose. I’m not sure anything good can come of that. True our media flings poop like monkeys, but I prefer a world where people think they are more than accidental naked apes.
