Muslims really should take note of the manner in which Christianity has been subdued in the West. It's looking increasingly likely that the Christians in the West will capitulate in their fight against gay marriage. There's a huge schism amongst them and the group that seems to have the momentum is the one advocating gay marriage.
It's easy to say 'I told you so' but come on, what were these Christians expecting after pretty much ignoring the Old Testament because it contained teachings that did not fit with Western liberalism and all the while turning a blind eye to sex (heterosexual) before marriage. I mean, when was the last time we heard Christians in the UK, US, mainland Europe or Australia on mass denouncing boyfriend-girlfriend relationships? When? Perhaps the question to ask is 'why'.
Why did Christians in the West turn a blind eye to sex before marriage? It's because they wanted to fit in with Western liberalism. Why is it any surprise that they are changing their attitudes to gay marriage...
The depth that is lost on a lot of religious people when it comes to gay marriage is that the push for gay marriage did not come overnight. Open homosexuality and acceptance of such arrives only when a society's sexual moral compass is ignored or even changed. 70 years ago, in the UK, sex before marriage was denounced and those with children outside of wedlock were stigmatised. Fast forward to 2013 and we see sex before marriage and children out of wedlock as the norm. ONLY when this is the norm does a society push forward the gay agenda.
Muslim countries such as Saudi Arabia are mocked by the liberal Western media for their conservative approach against sex before marriage but I bet conscious Christians in the West actually commend and even admire Saudi Arabia whilst lamenting their Western society's inability to stay true to Biblical teachings on sex. Muslim countries must learn from the Christian West's failings; they as a society turned a blind eye to sex before marriage in their efforts to appease Western liberalism. Now look where they are!
Here's yet another sign of their capitulation to Western liberalism:
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A United Methodist pastor from central Pennsylvania who was defrocked after officiating his son's gay wedding was invited by a California Methodist bishop to serve in her region in yet another sign of a split in the nation's largest mainline Protestant denomination
I just wonder what this conservative pastor who attacks Muslims for holding on to conservative dress has to say
Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim. Now is the time.
