Well, to some this is a new beginning. To others, it’s a sign of the apocalypse. To me, this is simply in interesting turn of events.
I think it’s wonderful that there is an entire geographic region of the church that supports this, but I am disturbed at the fact that there is a larger region of the church that not only is against it, but will likely speak out heavily against this. The people I know who have proven themselves to be wiser than most all seem to agree that while a move like this is a good thing, the Church at large is not prepared for this event at this time.
Never the less, it has happened and now we have to deal with the consequences, good and bad. That alone could be a great thing to have happen. And it’s good to know and remember that both those in favor and those opposed follow the same God who loves all regardless. That at least should help us to come together peacefully.
