When we stand for liberty, we may die for it. Jesus is clear about it. This isn’t for the faint of heart.
Jesus also challenges us to weigh the costs. Are we willing to pay the price?
Standing up for marriage and life require courage. Am I up to it?
Men have died to preserve our fundamental freedoms. Woe to this generation if we back down in the face of boycotts and hashtags. I’ve discussed this before, and I’ll discuss it again. The church was built by apostles who withstood beatings; too many modern Christians can’t even endure Tweetings. Secular fury is a fact of faithful Christian life, and if placating PayPal takes precedence over defending liberty, then we deserve our cultural and political fate.
