Dressing Melania Trump
You are listening to the sermon from 01/22/17
Faith Wesleyan Church in Rockford IL.

Scripture texts: Matthew 5:11-12; Romans 12:17-21; Matthew 5: 44-47; 1 Corinthians 8:1-13

Synopsis: Today, Christians are at the business end of lots of double standards. I don’t see how these double standards are going to get any better any time soon. I think they’re only going to get worse. For the first time ever, the United States has been added to an annual list of the world’s persecutors of Christians and countries that are repressing religious freedom. According to the ICC, Christians in the U.S. are facing constant attacks and double standards in the media, where they are portrayed as bigoted, racist, sexist and closed-minded. These false characterizations have caused the attacks against Christianity to double since 2012. So what are Christians supposed to do in this culture of verbal persecution and obvious double standards? Well, I recon it depends on what we want to accomplish. It is not wrong to debate and discuss double standards in our culture. In fact we must. We need to stake out and defend Biblical territory. But we need to do it out of a spirit of love.
