"…to the praise of the glory of His grace…" Ephesians 1:6

The Downgrade

I wrote the following post in response to President Obama’s recent speech to the Gay and Lesbian Community and a dear brother’s comments about what is in the near future for Christians in light of this movement.

If twenty years ago we could not have imagined the church embracing the perversions being embraced today, we better steady ourselves for what lies ahead on this front (Gay Pride agenda) as well. It is the progression in Romans 1 that it appears the church is on. I believe Denny Burk is exactly right when he says, “there will be some new realities to adjust to. We need to be thinking about those in advance so that we can be faithful in the midst of an increasingly hostile culture.”

A.W. Tozer gave this warning 50 years ago: “Some things are funny, and we may well laugh sometimes. But sin isn’t funny; death isn’t funny…” and in another place: “the weakness of so many modern Christians is that they feel too much at home in the world. In their effort to achieve restful “adjustment” (connect) to unregenerate society they have lost their pilgrim character and become an essential part of the moral order against which they are sent to protest. The world recognizes them and accepts them for what they are. And this is the saddest thing that can be said about them. They are not lonely, but neither are they saints.”

May God raise up prophetic voices like yours Denny to warn our generation of where it is headed.
