Some Advice from a Canadian on Same-Sex Marriage

A few weeks ago I read an extremely well thought out post on same-sex marriage. The author offers advice on how Christians can respond helpfully when the law of the land supports a post-Christian culture. His words make sense, are non-inflammatory and, in my view, bring Jesus great pleasure.

Carey Nieuwhof, a Canadian, wrote his post in response to the flurry of reaction set off by the June, 2015 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that same-sex couples can marry in all 50 states. He writes “from the perspective of a pastor of an evangelical church in a country where same sex-marriage has been the law of the land for a decade … [and] we’ve had a decade to process and pray over the issue.”

As he states, “The purpose of this post is to think through how to respond as a church when the law of the land changes as fundamentally as it’s changing on same-sex marriage and many other issues.” His perspectives are refreshing and thoughtful. I can almost hear them come out of Jesus’ mouth.

How can Christians respond helpfully when the law of the land supports a post-Christian culture?

Rather than trying to add to his words, I’m going to simply link you his post of June 29, 2015. Please, carefully read Some Advice on Same-Sex Marriage for US Church Leaders From a Canadian. I pray you will thoughtfully consider what he says.

    I read this article also. It made me think, inspired me to try to be more like Christ and in some way gave me a sense of peace.

      I agree. I found his thinking on this subject both clear and challenging in a good way.
