we are a cross species. made in the image of God yet trying to make an image for ourselves
many current political trends have created some hard issues for christians. as a follower of Jesus, i believe God created us male and female. He orchestrated marriage. He created diversity. He created everything and said it was good. but the man and woman God made were cursed for betraying their creator. the world was broken. we no longer live in teh perfect garden of Eden.
We live in a world that has denied God or flat out blasphemed. so, the things God ordained for us are all fragile in this ungodly world.
CS Lewis wrote of an absolute moral law people live by but now, there is an agenda to cut out morals- even ones that seem inherit to men. murder is easily excusable. theft is forgiven. Gods name is used in vain everywhere. lies are acceptable and white lies actually encouraged, parents are often blamed for the child’s issues rather than being honored. there are no days that are set aside to rest and even holidays are being taken over by consumerism, women leave husbands and men leave wives whenever they crave something different, men and women have sexual relationships with each other, money and status and things create a sense of worth, authorities are disrespected, racisim runs rampant, houses of worship are being threatened to go against their deepest beliefs. and many many different types of gods are worshiped even among so called Christians.
How can we then legislate transgender or homosexuality or worship places or money or divorce laws or oaths? i just think about the days of Judges when the Bible records “in those days there was no KING in the land. everyone did what was right in his own eyes”
we are a cross species. made in the image of God yet trying to make an image for ourselves.
