Retired Episcopal bishop John Shelby Spong has released a new Manifesto on homosexual marriage: it’s simply true and he’s not going to argue with people who disagree with him any longer. There is no surprise surrounding bishop Spong’s opinions on homosexuality; the former bishop is a self-professed liberal who doesn’t believe in the authority of scripture. As Dr. Mohler notes on today’s program, the problem with this manifesto is that it says Christians should simply be quiet and accept the tide of homosexuality that is sweeping society. The gospel alone provides the answer people need to the homosexual question: Jesus came to save sinners. The Church cannot be silent about a matter as important as this.

Words From the Fire: Hearing the Voice of God in the 10 Commandments
If God has spoken, then the highest human aspiration must be to hear what the Creator has said. God has indeed spoken, through the Ten Commandments, and Al Mohler explores this revelation of God and the implications for His people. The promise is to hear, to obey, and to live. These “Ten Words” tell us who God is and what His people should look like.
