    See the latest entry, Sexuality and Marriage.

    The source of all of this chaos--chaos that is damaging to human happiness and flourishing? As the Statement puts it, it is a refusal to "honor the image-bearing character of human sexuality as created by God." Our secular age has rejected the Creator and therefore has no room for "image-bearing" or transcendent value or objective truth. The downward spiral only spins more tightly as it descends to disaster. God's Word calls us to the upward spiral of life that is based upon the gospel and God's revelation of His purposes in creation. The Scriptures are clear and compelling in their teaching in this vital area, and we would do well to pay very close attention and heed their admonitions.​

    I believe that Christ's teachings exalt true social justice and that the GOP Jesus is the true GOP Jesus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZ2L-R8NgrA

But these are not the issues at hand.

    I am happy to see a statement like this as I am weary of the More-Woke-Than-Thou crowd in the blogosphere. I am hoping the Statement will do with the topic as did the Chicago Statement on Inerrancy did years ago.

    I was particularly pleased to see a firm stance on complementarianism in the document, too. No doubt it will catch the ire of the egalitarians who continue to demonstrate they actually do not understand the topic theologically.

    I think the Church militant must begin to recognize the favored political climate that we currently enjoy, pretty much the world round right now, wrt religious liberty. We have an opportunity to go back to that brief period, after the Church was legalized at the beginning of the 4th century, and before it was made the established religion of the Empire. Paganisms are not outlawed, and there is no guarantee that laws will be Christian in nature. If we circle the wagons and unite on the matter of religious freedom, then we will pave the way for our glorious future, which will only come about after we're all long dead. The Church must learn how to live among the pagans, on a level playing field with them all, and slowly but surely consume the whole of humanity, maintaining forever the recognition, affirmation, and protection of the human right of religious liberty.
    "Those who believe in Christ" are all the Christians, Catholic or not.
