Here are some good words from Trevin Wax:
The ethical dilemmas we are facing would boggle the mind of my great grandparents….
It’s not going to get easier.
If in a mere decade, a society can overturn a pillar that has undergirded civilization for thousands of years, what kind of changes will come in the next decade or two? The unthinkable is now the possible.
The cultural pressure upon us will increase. We better be okay with standing out from the rest of the world, no matter how unpopular it makes us.
We also better get used to people saying we are filled with hate and vitriol toward neighbors we disagree with. And we should do our best to show the world so much love that those labels don’t stick.
Maybe the way God is teaching us to reach out to the maligned and marginalized is by letting us taste the same kind of social ostracism.
Maybe the less we seek the love of society, the more we’ll be free to love others in God’s image.
