Sometimes I am really glad to not have a blog that elicits a ton of comments. Actually, I’m lying. It makes me sad that I haven’t yet succeeded at creating a community here at Borrowed Light. But let’s pretend that I’m cool with it so I can make my next sentence. On days like today I wish that I had an active community here, because I would love to have a discussion.
My question is one that I don’t yet have an answer formulated for.
When the culture at large rejects biblical principles can we also say that they are opposing the gospel?
Or allow me to ask it a little differently.
Can we say that we are being persecuted for the sake of the gospel, when it’s really “biblical principles” (like the issue on homosexuality) that we are being persecuted for? Is being persecuted for biblically held beliefs the same thing as sharing in the sufferings of Christ?
What do you think?
I might attempt an answer to this later. But I need to have one first…
