Maxie Dunnam: Can we trust the United Methodist Church on marriage?

    Maxie Dunnam at Canon & Culture: “Can we trust the church in its understanding of marriage? If we can’t, then what can we trust the church with? . . . In his teaching, Jesus Christ underscored the importance and sacredness of lifelong marriage between one woman and one man. . . . This is the corporate, and continuing witness of the Church throughout history. We need to keep in mind that how we think must not be restricted to random feelings and even individual interpretation of Scripture. We need to be in harmony with the whole Body of Christ and all the saints now and forever.”

Andrew Walker: Of conscience and cakes

    Andrew Walker at First Things: “The instances of cake bakers, florists, and wedding photographers being asked to lend their services to same-sex unions seems harmless enough. But they have a duty to obey what their conscience tells them is true. But also consider: If Christians can be compelled to lend a craft to something their conscience objects to, what can’t they be compelled to participate in? We’re talking about precedent; and the cases before us are bellwether test cases about whether private actors can be forcibly mandated to go against their conscience.”
