Today’s Chick-Fil-A “eat-ins” may not particularly demonstrate the Gospel or serve as as an effective evangelization tool. It does, however, demonstrate support for the institution of marriage as ordained by God (Matthew 19:4-6).
I don’t conone homosexuality but I support the rights of individuals to exercise their freedom as free-will moral agents, as God does. I will not, on the other hand, sit idle and watch the institution of marriage wantonly polluted.
Now, I’ll admit, not many souls are apt to be won during this event. However, in a world where the Christian viewpoint is trivialized, disregarded, and disrespected, this makes a statement that the Body of Christ is willing to stand up for something.
Who knows, maybe this will move Christians off their “blessed assurance” and DO, for a change, instead of just SAYING!
