Following the horrifying events of 9-11, former President George W. Bush told Congress that we are "not in a war of our choosing." Similarly, the Church is in a war it did not choose but must vigorously prosecute until the Lord returns. Christians in many parts of the world are casualties of that war.

In our country, the war is still largely a "war of ideas." One of those destructive ideas is the notion that marriage is not ordained of the Lord; that it is not necessarily vital to the nurturing of children, and the concept of "family" should be radically altered.

If you are more comfortable with the idea of traditional marriage, may I ask why? What is wrong with same-sex couples getting "married?" Why do you think that affects you, your family, and your community? Why is it any of your business in the first place?

If you have difficulty articulating your understanding of the matter, you are not alone. Many don’t know how to respond when long-held moral beliefs are challenged, especially by friends and family members—and more so—when the subject is homosexuality. Besides, as Christians, we don’t want to be in the uncomfortable position of "judging" others. Right?

The Apostle Paul said, "We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God." (2Cor 10:5) To help you do that, we would like to send you our complimentary monthly commentary that deals with contemporary issues of special import to Christians. It has become a staple for many pastors, lawmakers, and those seeking to "understand our times" (1Chron 12:32) and to help change the hearts and minds of those who "hold the truth in unrighteousness."
