Abstract

Political issues do not appear in a vacuum. While it may seem the controversy swirling around gay rights is new, several decades of legal, political, and social trends have joined to create this quarrel. As evangelical Christians, we operate from a scriptural foundation in the hope of bending our culture toward the will of God. How we begin to accomplish this audacious agenda is a matter of discernment. Three questions must be addressed as we ponder the sources of, and our response to, gay rights in general, and gay marriage in particular.
