Why I Signed, Too

Rick Phillips
I thank Carl for providing the link to the Church of Scotland on-line petition, which I signed yesterday.  Like Phil, I thought it was well-written and compelling.  I think there are some good matters for reflection here, including points already made by Carl and Phil.  Like Carl, I am generally concerned when Christians are more inflamed over matters of morality than doctrine, especially hot-button items for cultural Christianity like homosexuality.  I, for one, consider the mainline abandonment of Scripture, Christ, and the gospel to be of ultimate significance: compared to attacks on the trinity, atonement, and inerrancy, homosexuality is a pretty small-fry issue.  But like Phil, I think it most important that we stand in solidarity with faithful men and women as they are fighting unbelief and apostasy in their church communions.
