A watershed issue

One of the links that I’ve had on this website for years is the link to Adrian Warnock’s articles on Dr. Lloyd-Jones. Sadly, I will no longer link to his page due his endorsement of sexual acts outside of marriage. I’m sorry that some people have a hatred for those who engage in homosexual acts, but that cannot undo God’s Word or His nature, or their need to repent of their sin.

This issue is probably going to be THE watershed issue of our day, but this has not come about overnight. This all started back in the 1800’s when churches began to permit those who questioned the inspiration of the Bible to teach in the seminaries and pastor congregations. Liberalism had enough momentum to have J. Gresham Machen kicked out of the Presbyterian Church, USA, after he had so adequately diagnosed what the real issue was.

And that issue is still today the same as it was in Machen’s day – is the Bible authoritative or not? The issue of homosexual acts is not about rights, but about the nature of sin and morality. It’s not about the redefinition of marriage, but about the redefinition of sin. And to redefine sin is to redefine (or change) the whole nature of our redemption and salvation, which therefore redefines (or changes) the One who redeems and saves.

But the Bible is plain – “I am the Lord, I change not” (Malachi 3:6) and “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).
