Forever14 This is a story of my friends and I playing a game of truth of dare. You know how it works; now we start talking… and we did. We all replied with a no.
Harrison Dear brothers, In the face of another radical cultural shift — a denial of God and His creation, a rejection of Christ, the Ten Commandments and God-given natural law Romans 1 — a great Lutheran responded with truths that are also true for our times: The lie is the death of man, his temporal and his eternal death.
The lie kills nations. The most powerful nations of the world have been laid waste because of their lies.
History knows of no more unsettling sight than the judgment rendered upon the people of an advanced culture who have rejected the truth and are swallowed upon in a sea of lies. Where this happens, as in the case of declining pagan antiquity, religion and law, poetry and philosophy, life in marriage and family, in the state and society — in short, one sphere of life after another falls sacrifice to the power and curse of the lie.
Where man can no longer bear the truth, he cannot live without the lie. Where man denies that he and others are dying, the terrible dissolution [of his culture] is held up as a glorious ascent, and decline is viewed as an advance, the likes of which has never been experienced.
Hermann Sasse, Union and Confession, Download bulletin insert In just a few weeks, the Supreme Court is expected to rule on the legality of same-sex marriage in America and roll out the implications of that ruling for individual states.
This will be the earnest beginning of a very long struggle for faithful Christians who will, more and more, be driven from participation in the culture. We shall come to know and understand parts of the Word of God like never before. Brothers, the battle has already been won.
Our Lord, Jesus Christ, has already defeated the foe. Satan surrendered at Golgotha. But what do we do? If the Supreme Court rules that same-sex marriage is legal in every state or must be recognized in every state, what is our response?
We stand fast 2 Thess. We live in and by our Savior, who calls us to stay the course, to repent of our sin, to be in the Word of God and in prayer. We take legal action where absolutely necessary.
The plan fits the nature of the Church: She works in the world for the long haul.
She keeps telling real people about a real Jesus, from black-robed Supreme Court justices to the protestors on the steps of that building to the young people in college watching the ruling unfold to those of us who never imagined we would see this seismic shift in our lifetime.
And she lives to demonstrate the mercy and love of Christ 1 John 3: Most importantly, she speaks of the One who came for sinners — all sinners — and of the One who showed His love for us by dying for us. She simply stays the course. And you will have them. Legal marriage may be redefined, and outcomes we never imagined will occur.
This world is wending its way toward the end Matthew The story ends well Revelation 7. That is what those in the pew and those disenchanted by the people in the pew need to hear, and will always need to hear, the most.
Beyond the theological consequences of this ruling, however, there are also practical implications, and I urge you to consider the following: It will likely be a messy ruling that will require time to unpack.
We may discover that there is ultimately no constitutional protection for the Synod, its institutions, you or your congregation. The day may come when even this legal protection will not be enough, but it may assist you and your congregational leadership in forestalling issues as long as possible.
Will LCMS pastors eventually be forced, as agents of the state, to perform same-sex marriages?
If that happens, will we be prepared to let the state perform the legal marriage ceremony, while we as pastors provide a religious ceremony for those marriages that are in keeping with our confession of faith as Lutheran Christians?
We must have these discussions as pastors and as a Synod, and we may even need to make decisions at the next Synod convention in the summer of What protections will the Synod or even the Constitution offer you? But here is what I am personally sure of: The Gospel is enduring.
