Good News and Supreme Courts

Russell Moore, one of Touchstone's Senior Editors, writes at his blog, Moore to the Point, about this week's Supreme Court's non-decision about "gay marriage"—he is not one to waste time bemoaning. After all, he reminds us,

The sexual revolution did not start at Woodstock. It is always with us.

We ought to have the confidence of people who have heard a word from God and the compassion of a people who are on a mission with God. The Supreme Court can do many things, but the Supreme Court cannot get Jesus back into his cemetery plot.

Amen to that! We are always to endure suffering that the life of Jesus may be manifest in us—his death-conquering Life from the dead IS the Gospel, not something else. We do not change our minds because the Supreme Court says a baby in utero is not a human being or a marriage may be between two men. We do not retreat.

But more than that, we have the means, power, and grace—if we are and remain abiding in Christ—to bring truth to men and women like ourselves who all need Jesus.

Please join the Fellowship of St. James as we join with the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (headed by Russell Moore) for the conference on "The Gospel, Homosexuality & the Future of Marriage" in Nashville, October 27-29. We will have a booth there. More than a thousand are expected to attend.

Yours for Christ, Creed & Culture,
—James M. Kushiner
Executive Director, The Fellowship of St. James
