    Im dissapointed in John McArthurs response so if I own website building company do I have to build a website for couple who will be using their website for pornography should I have them fill out a moral card before building their website that will be used for porn?

      I do not think you can compare that at all. Before building a website, you are already going to know the content you are going to need the build the website for. How else would you create what that person wants?

  3. Denver Don says:

    well articulated by the panel – especially appreciate what MacArthur says as this issue is only 1 morale issue so where do businesses draw the line?

  4. Mykael says:

    I loved JMac’s quote, “They are the mission field. They are not the enemy” All of us Christians would do well to hold fast to that.

    The question required a yes or a no. This only shows me that these people don’t follow instructions and can’t speak without preaching a sermon. Beware of false prophets.

      Marie,
      These men were explaining their answer using the word of God. How is that being a false prophet? That is like saying why do Christians give “textbook” answers? Well because they answer from the authoritative word of God. It is not by their own authority, but by the authority of the Bible. Just because they answered with more than a yes answer and explaining why their answer is yes does not make them a false teacher. You need to read your Bible and look and understand to what a false teacher/prophet is.

    Role reversal! Should an Atheist gay person bake a wedding cake for a Christian if requested and purchased in a respectful manner? I’d give a “Golden Rule”, “love thy neighbour” yes to both accounts.

    • Since an atheist gay person lacks an objective moral standard, it would be entirely up to their personal desires whether they wanted to do that. But since Christians operate from God’s divine standard of holiness, we are not free to just do whatever we want.

      • jasonjshaw says:

        Could’ve fooled me! Many Christians do whatever they want depending on how they choose to interpret the Bible. From my experiences with Christians, the Biblical moral standard seems to be quite subjective itself, maybe even more so than natural morality. Some even seem to take Christ’s sacrifice as a golden ticket to do whatever they want as all sins have already been forgiven.

    Yes, they are the mission field but that does not mean we celebrate the immorality they espouse or neither do we say… that’s ok.

  10. The response to me came across as a political two step. A better respoce would be

    1 Corinthians 5:9-13
    9 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— 10 not at all meaning the sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. 11 But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one. 12 For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? 13 God judges those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.”

    I say on this basis as on vocation one can serve his gay customer without compromising our beliefs. I do allow for conscience.
