“Early indications are that FRC may have been targeted for its biblical views on social-policy issues. That is a chilling thought. No person or group of any ideological stripe – left, right or center — should have to fear physical violence for passionately articulating and acting on their deeply help convictions in the realm of public policy. That is the very definition of terrorism.”
Consider also this 1996 quote penned in his Center for Christ and Culture website:
“If we recognize the spiritual reality in which we all live, then we understand homosexuality as merely one more “pretension that has set itself up against the knowledge of God” in other words it is one of those deceptions constructed by Satan to keep people from a knowledge of the truth. The victims are not our enemy – Satan is our enemy. It is he whom we fight and the weapon he cannot overcome is the love of Jesus Christ. It is with the overwhelming force of Christ’s love that we must confront the homosexual man or woman. Where do we get this idea that the first thing that we need to do is tell them the rules and then go on to immediately inform them that they are breaking them?
This is not how we speak or act before a pagan world. Consider 1 Peter 2:12 – “Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us.”
I sincerely hope this is not a sign of things to come but given the nature of man I wouldn’t be surprised. Regardless, I have no fear of the future as my faith and hope rests in Christ alone. The point I want to make is, in the world that we live in, our response will not only define us but also pave the ways for others to follow.
