Australia is in the middle of an election campaign and one of the issues is same sex marriage. Until a few month ago Prime Minister Rudd was opposed to same sex marriage. Now he has change his mind.
Here's a well written and biblically sound response from Sandy Grant, senior minister at St Michael’s Anglican Cathedral in Wollongong.
Last night, on a serious Australian current affairs program, Q&A, our current serving Prime Minister, a self-professed Christian, grossly caricatured the Bible.
A pastor questioned the PM’s change of mind on same-sex marriage, pointing out that Jesus says, “A man shall leave his father and mother and be married”—summarising Matthew 19:4-6—and asked why someone calling himself a Christian does not believe the words of Jesus in the Bible.
The PM replied,
“Well if I was going to have that view, the Bible also says that slavery is a natural condition.”
This received the most enormous applause of the night, which incidentally seems to indicate both the depth of biblical illiteracy and the hostility to Christian morality.
Keep reading and understand why the Bible and Jesus have never condoned slavery or same sex marriage.
Unfortunately, our Prime Minister is a progress Christian who places current social trends above the authority of Jesus and the Scriptures. Every Christian movement that goes down this path is headed for decline and decay. There are no exceptions.
