Challenging believers in Jesus to think and act based on Bible truth.

Friday Feature 10.2.15 – African Perspective on America’s Sexual Revolution

TDAS.001I never really know what articles from Monday’s post will gain the most attention. That’s the fun in posting links I find interesting. So this week’s article was a runaway. Readers showed their interest in an African perspective on America’s sexual revolution.

See the article here: Through African Eyes

As usual, I’ll encourage you to read the article for yourself. And, as usual, I’ll add a couple thoughts of my own:

1. Ideology vs. Practicality

I wonder out loud how many people advocating for the American sexual revolution advocate ideology without considering the practical applications.

Simply put: far more people are adopting the tenets of the sexual revolution than will ever be affected by the laws those tenets produce.

2. The Bible is the true ideology.

This should come as a simple reminder. But, surprisingly, simplicity doesn’t rule the day for Christians. It seems many Christians advocating for the sexual revolution willingly blur the Bible’s teaching for the popular teachings of the day.

This is not the place for me to defend the truthfulness of Scripture, but I’ll say briefly that if you believe the Bible is true, you cannot subscribe to the sexual revolution’s promises. The two oppose.

3. Hospitality.

May homosexuals (or any person for that matter) find hospitable, loving people when they encounter Christians. I would hope anyone would be surprised to find out we aren’t really the hate-filled bigots the media makes us out to be.

Think. How does the author of this feature article help your thinking about the American sexual revolution?

Act. I have no new advice for how to act. Keep up the same mix of truth and grace with anyone interacting with you as an unbeliever.
