Did you click on the title of this post hoping for everything to suddenly make sense? That you would finally know exactly what God thinks about gay marriage and how you should culturally live that out? I understand the desire. Just so we are clear, you won’t get that from this post. But keep reading.
I’ve watched recently as social media has been flooded with opinions about gay marriage. I’ve had numerous people ask me to weigh in on the issue. Truthfully, I’m not sure what to say. Not because I don’t have opinions but because I don’t know what is healthy and productive and what is destructive. Jesus didn’t answer many questions He was asked. I’ve taken a cue from Him and tried to be selective with the opinions I carry.
So I’m not ready to fully dive into the topic myself quite yet. I’m still praying for wisdom and discernment in navigating the complexities and the implications of this topic. Like I mentioned in my post about Obama and the end times, I think issues like this one are fueled by fear (especially from Christians). That isn’t a healthy environment to find your stance. The Church has survived cultures that have included far more extreme behaviors than gay marriage and it did just fine. So relax.
