“If the world is against the truth, then I am against the world.” The words of Athanasius remain relevant even in modern times, as society continues to pressure the church to abandon Christian orthodoxy. In a video that has now gone viral, Father Calvin Robinson shared this quote from Athanasius during his 12-minute long debate speech at the Oxford Union. When bishops within his own church made the decision to “bless same-sex unions”, Robinson chose to defend the sanctity of marriage in response.
Listen as Frank highlights numerous “truth bombs” that were dropped in the debate and explores some of the questions posed by Father Robinson, including:
- What is God’s purpose for marriage?
- How does the Bible define love?
- Do we know more about human sexuality today than God did in ancient biblical times?
- Why does society pressure Christians to change our views but not other religions?
- If same-sex marriage is allowed, what other sexual proclivities will be endorsed by the church?
Most of us will never go viral for defending the faith, but we will undoubtedly encounter this issue within our own communities. This podcast episode is guaranteed to help Christians and conservatives address this sensitive topic. In the words of G.K. Chesterton, “We do not want a church that will move with the world. We want a church that will move the world.”
