Today is July 24th, 2011, the day same-sex “marriage” becomes legal in New York. More disturbing to me than the earliest institutions (Gen 2:21-24) being re-written to fit the whims of a few, is the news from one of the leaders of New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedom (http://www.nycf.info/) stating that the churches didn’t really participate in the debate leading up to the vote on the same-sex “marriage” bill. I’ve come to expect the back-room dealing and influence peddling that were part of this debate, but the fact that most of Christ’s body either didn’t think it was important enough or couldn’t be bothered to contact their members in the state legislature to express a biblical position on the state of marriage in New York truly disturbs me.
My conclusion is that the church in New York and the Northeast, if not the country as a whole, has truly lost it’s flavor. (Matt 15:13) While I am grateful to those individuals, groups, and congregations that did call, write, and email their representatives, it has become apparent that the church as a whole no longer works as a preservative in this nation or its culture. If we are no longer salt and light to this world, then is the church good for anything anymore? Should we be thrown out and trampled underfoot? Or at least have our rights trampled underfoot?
If we, as the salt of the earth, have lost our flavor, how shall it be seasoned? “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 (NKJV)
