Owning the Curse

Douglas Wilson and Douglas Jones have written a very important article on same-sex marriage in the latest issue of Credenda/Agenda. It seems to me that their take on the issue is very much in harmony with the information the Bible gives us. They point out that our “immediate response is almost always in terms of ‘Here is evil; let us condemn it,’ without a thought to, ‘Here is evil; let us confess it.'” We, the Church, must repent of the path on which we have lead our culture. “We [the Church] are the light of the world; we are the salt of the earth; we are the kingdom of priests; we are Christ on the earth; we represent Christ to the world around us; we are the Watchmen on the wall; we hold the keys of the kingdom.” We must confess that we have failed in our calling.
