The Sands of Time are Sinking

This article is an illustration of a larger problem. What it says about homosexual marriage could be repeated with regard to Trinitarian doctrine, justification, apologetics, church history, and many other issues. Pastors need to stop feeding their congregations so much baby food. There's a reason why Paul wrote about the full armor of God rather than the full pajamas of God. Maybe the most significant part of the article is this:

"McGuire doubts that Christians today would consider as faithful pastors [those] who remained silent about slavery or stood by silently as Adolf Hitler came to power and began murdering Jews."

What we do today will be history tomorrow. If you want to know what it was like to live in America under slavery or in Germany under Hitler, it was like what you're experiencing today. Pastors and their congregations need to have more of a sense of urgency and need to attempt to accomplish greater things, including things that are impossible without God. Stop giving out baby food and setting low expectations.
