Does anyone else find it very odd (or maybe just a sign of the times) that there are lots of children around as the WA governor signs this bill?
I will choose to meditate on this Scripture today.
For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry. ~ 2 Timothy 4:3-5
We live in an interesting time, none of this really surprises me. Tolerance is being preached, but it seems we are to tolerate everything as long is it isn’t narrow-minded Biblical instruction.
I have witnessed the mindset of students each year become more and more open to the ideas society would want them to believe. I trust that as Christians we can continue to live in and be about grace, but keep our head in all situations as well!
Interesting photo opportunity for Governor G.
Praying for our nation.

1. Even C. S. Lewis suggested this sort of policy in the 1940’s. It’s in Mere Christianity. So the policy doesn’t bother me so much… plus, I’ve been expecting it for years. After living in SF, you stop worrying and realize that when the world perhaps seems bleak (which it always did there), your little light shines even when you think perhaps it went out or no one notices. Thinking of it as an opportunity to STILL lead people to Christ is really the only option. God knew this would happen, anyway…
2. Brian, you’ve GOT to read Generations. I probably sound like a broken record to friends, but it’s ON with the way young people are starting to look at stuff… a shift is happening.
That said, uh….why all the little children around… and will it stop with equality and not pushing churches into forcing blessings or closing… I was really hoping for a change of governor this year. 12 years is just a long time…
I mentioned the picture to a friend, someone that says she is a Christian, and she said that she could hear in the tone of my voice that I had a problem with the picture and that I probably had a problem with same-sex marriages and that she didn’t have a problem with same-sex marriages. It makes me think of the sheep and the goats (and I’m talking about within the supposed “church”). I don’t want to have to be “careful” about the words I speak in public, but just becasue there are consequences to comments that go against the laws I have to be careful. I guess that sends me back to my knees. Miki
