- This decision is one more evidence that our nation is under the judgment of God and that our churches are being chastened in this matter as it relates to sexual purity, children, and marriage fidelity and integrity. All these are areas where we have weakened in the last 100 years.
- The celebration of this decision, joined be some professing Christians (“Love Wins”, etc.), is further evidence that we have not presented and demonstrated God’s ideal of one man for one woman for life.
- Let’s take full advantage of the situation with holy zeal and loving compassion to present biblical marriage and to help our people live it out and share the truth.
- Let’s be compassionate with those caught in sin and be diligent to present redemption for all sinners through Christ our Lord.
Also, make sure your church is protected from lawsuits and misuse of church facilities for weddings and events. We have had multiple sessions at our Association Conferences to help prepare us in this matter and remain to equip you and stand with you in these matters.
