Evidently Forbes magazine has arrived at a disturbing conclusion. According to this article Americans will consume approximately 150 million hotdogs on July 4th. If you’re looking for a healthy alternative, consider reading this blog post by Trevin Wax. It won’t fill your stomach, but it will likely help you steer those inevitable Gay Marriage discussions in a direction that actually honors God. I like it because it is short, clear, biblical, sensible, and saves me the effort of having to write one myself.
“Christians believe marriage is defined by God and recognized by government. But many today believe marriage is defined by government and must be recognized by all.”
“In our churches, we have the opportunity to show the world a better way. To show the world what biblical manhood and womanhood looks like. To show the world the difference between a covenant and a contract. To show the world the difference between commitment based on feeling and a covenant based on faith. The absence of a marriage culture will make biblical marriage stand out all the more. We’ll be ordinary oddballs. So let’s not waste the opportunity.”
Happy 4th (from a grateful immigrant)
