Now, perhaps World Vision U.S. will reverse its stance on same-sex marriage. Or maybe most other evangelicals will, despite these ecclesiastical problems, still manage to hold firm against the growing cultural pressure to accept same-sex marriage.
But I’m not confident they will. To my evangelical brothers and sisters: please feel free to prove me wrong! I’m certainly glad to see evangelical leaders like Albert Mohler and John Piper come out strongly against the decision of World Vision U.S.. But I don’t lack confidence because I doubt the sincerity of my evangelical brothers and sisters. I lack confidence because they reject the full set of tools God gave the Church to guard faith and morals. The consequence of that rejection appears to be manifesting itself right before us.
