Why would God allow a law changing the understanding of marriage to go through parliament? As I pondered in prayer, it occurred to me that the Lord is being consistent. How many times I have looked at a situation getting worse and thought, I must do something about that. I put it off only to see it move from an irritation to a major problem in the blink of an eye! I am left kicking myself for my complacency. God gave plenty of opportunity to act, but I was too busy with my agenda to be concerned for what He thought was important. So how has the Church in the UK been complacent? I cannot remember hearing a talk focused on a moral issue in decades! Not even on stealing or lies.
How can we expect God to stop the world changing marriage when we have been unwilling to teach on such issues? What hypocrisy for bringing up the subject now. I include myself here. I have favoured speaking on our relationship with God much more than on how that relationship needs to be worked out in the way we live. When working on the ‘www.beingrecreated.org’ website the pages concerning how we should live were some of the last to be added. It seems that we as Christians are so concerned about being nice, reaching out to our fellow man, and a nice relationship with God that we have forgotten that we walk with a Holy God.
