It is believers in traditional sexual morality, not those who disagree with them, who are being imposed on when they are required to take action in violation of their consciences … There is no greater harm than being required to act against one’s conscience, because it is action against what one believes to be ultimately right and wrong.

A church which is liberalized in its response to the world will not advance or defend the Christian virtue of holiness, a key point of conflict between traditional Christianity and liberalism; really the key doctrine of God which is in dispute.

The morality of personal autonomy the Supreme Court mandates is inimical to the Biblical morality of sin and salvation. Christian subculture itself, established to enable Christians to obey God in the world and provide a refuge from secularization, will be attacked as contrary to the public good.

The reason the sexual revolution prevailed is that it was imposed on the nation by the Supreme Court … [but] our non-negotiable commitment is to obey God… the imposition of a sexual ethic hostile to the Biblical revelation gives believers the possibility of displaying the truth about marriage, sexuality, and the family.

Faithful Christians need to beware least they be drawn into believing that the results of legal and social battles are binding on what they will or will not do … This means that one cannot take action against conscience even if there is never a legal accommodation of conscience … faithfulness to Christ demands that we take this route, and never be disobedient to God.
