The Nashville Statement does not do anything new. In fact, it is quite ancient. But to the left, which has no sense of history, The Nashville Statement is a new form of bigotry and nastiness. I dare say the people screaming about The Nashville Statement will be wailing and gnashing their teeth on Judgment Day and the reaction is a reason you should sign the statement.
All the Nashville Statement does is affirm two thousand years of Christian orthodoxy. All it says are two things the New Testament scripture affirms. God made mankind male and female and homosexuality is a sin.
These are consistent, timeless, Biblical principles. They are not new, but they need to be reaffirmed today because as we are seeing, a grand number of secularists and heretics have decided to shout down, smear, and ruin any Christian who stands for Biblical orthodoxy.
This, in fact, is something you, your family, and your church need to understand. The secularists are depending on your silence on this issue. They are strategically plotting to make life difficult for anyone who embraces scripture. They will name call, they will shame, and they will destroy.
They are governed now by emotion, not God. They embrace false doctrine to feel good and claim their false doctrines are true while denouncing you for holding on to truth. You must understand this. And you must instruct your children in this. You must encourage your pastor in this. The left wants you to abandon Christian orthodoxy on sexuality. They depend chiefly upon your’s, your spouse’s, and your pastor’s silence on the issue.
