Can we protect churches?

English: Church versus State

Will pastors soon be forced to perform gay marriage ceremonies? It sounds like there is already a legal case in Britain, where a couple who already has a civil union will go to court to force churches to host gay weddings. Remember last week we reported that one Texas senator has been viciously mocked for predicting that same scenario will probably happen in the United States.

But first we’re going to check in with our friend Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action, a fierce advocate for marriage, family, life and liberty. The education arm of this organization is Wisconsin Family Council, and here Julaine works to forward Judeo-Christian principles and values by informing citizens, churches and policymakers about important pro-family legislative and cultural issues so they will be inspired to get involved in preserving and strengthening marriage and family.

    Ministers/churches should consider not acting as a legal authority for the state and stop performing the civil / legal portion of a marriage.

    Ministers/churches could still perform a wedding ceremony once the couple has finalized the legal requirements for marriage through a judge or some other authorized civil servant.

    The evil snowball is gaining momentum… next up…
    1. Polygamous marriages.
    2. Marriages that include children.
    3. Marriages that extent beyond the human race to animals (and probably plants and inanimate objects too.)

    They will laugh and scoff saying they will never go this far… but the truth is… they no longer have an anchor for their reasoning or their morality. They serve the evil one.

    Romans 1:28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.

      Sadly, what you suggested is probably the only way churches can keep from getting sued. I think the real motive of these gays, who want church weddings, is the closure of Biblical churches so there will be no more preaching against homosexuality. Will such churches be forced underground in the next few years? The winds are sure blowing that way.

    If we take an honest look at the condition of the church as we know it today….we must ask this…"From what are we to protect it from?" Does not "the church" look like the rest of the world?

    Perhaps Jesus Christ left the building a long time ago as the sin in rampant within the church system and it is being glorified.

    Where is the repentance that is supposed to be taking place? Where are the hearts that are being convicted of sin? Are not people moved to tears in repenting before a Holy and Just God, or do we leave the buildings with a big grin on our faces feeling pretty good about ourselves because we showed up for church, were seen by men so our names could be checked off the roster (so as to not be accused of backsliding), and forgetting about our Father the rest of the week.

    Jesus never came to give us a good laugh and make us feel great about our wonderful selves…….He came to save us from our sins…..and the church no longer defines sin according to the Bible….they just pick and choose selective sins (after all, we don't want to hurt the feelings of those who are engaging in certain sins as we might lose the pianist, bass guitarist, the biggest money giver, the secretary, etc., etc., etc.) so the full counsel of God is not taught.

    Perhaps it is about time to give up the cute little stories from the pulpit system….the pastor speaking about himself/herself, their lives growing up, and their family and friends…..we are tired of hearing about you, you, and more of you…..let us hear more about Jesus and His teachings……PLEASE.

    I am the church, one of the called out ones. Each one must pray for wisdom, courage to stand & defend the Word. I am an overcomer by the blood of the Lamb & the word of my testimony. I will receive the reward He decides -not anyone else. Thank God He exposes the lost to those who will see.
    Let us continue to pray for all pastors as the Holy Spirit directs, for the harvest as Jesus commanded, looking forward to the day we join Him. He told us of these days to forewarn, encourage, & relieve us of fear. To strengthen us in knowing that the days are short. We MUST minister His love, grace & Truth where we are placed. He has called us to do so. Our faith & trust is in Him which increases as we are obedient. Each who are known by Him will hv a life review & rewards. Do not be weary in well doing for in due season you will reap if you faint not.
