In the book of Luke, Luke records Jesus saying, “Everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and acts on them, I will show you whom he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who has heard and has not acted accordingly, is like a man who built a house on the ground without any foundation; and the torrent burst against it and immediately it collapsed, and the ruin of that house was great.” (Luke 6:47-49)
In a recent OpEd in the WSJ by Dr. Albert Mohler about homosexual marriage, Mohler starts by saying, “The Christian church has faced no shortage of challenges in its 2,000-year history. But now it’s facing a challenge that is shaking its foundations: homosexuality.”
So, I wonder, what is Mohler’s foundation? It doesn’t appear to be Jesus.
I know Mohler is a follower of Jesus… I am merely using him as an example of two things. 1) We ought to be careful of the words we use when we try to spark emotional reactions from people and 2) We ought to be able to discern hype when we read it. In fact, I seriously doubt Mohler actually believes that homosexuality is shaking the foundations of Christianity.
