As same-sex marriage is approved in more states -- Minnesota is the latest -- and the Supreme Court rules next month whether laws defining marriage between a man and a woman are constitutional, I want to remind you of something.
The unsaved world and everyone in it is heading toward destruction. But those who are saved and have the mind of Christ are headed in the opposite direction. The collapse of culture, as we call it, is inevitable for the growing numbers who care nothing of what God says, but prefer doing what seems right in their own eyes.
Same-sex marriage is part of a larger picture in which God gives people over to depraved minds and actions. While Christians wish to share the gospel with the unsaved, we should be under no illusion that a majority, or even a substantial minority, will accept God's truth, be converted and be given the mind of Christ. All of this is forecast in Scripture. Don't worry, but be ready for the coming persecution of those who are holdouts for the truth.
