Christians are not victims of the judiciary; we’ve been consistently voting for gay marriage and other unbiblical policies with our dollars and time. In a capitalist society, we vote every day with our dollars and our time (with respect to the media). Capitalism is very simple—the products that are desirable to the consumer are rewarded with purchases, the products that are undesirable go away because they are not financially supported. When you spend your dollar on a product, you are voting for more of that product. With respect to the media, spending time watching or listening to a program is a vote for similar programming (see note below for the details).
From a practical perspective, most Christians vote for certain policies in political elections one time every two or four years, but several times every day we vote with our dollars and time for opposite policies.
If you want a society that doesn’t glamorize pre-marital sex, divorce, lust, gay marriage, greed, materialism, etc., then don’t vote for products and programs that glamorize those things. The folly of rewarding A while hoping for B. Understand that businesses and media shape culture and culture determines policy. You see, the progressive media and businesses have been using products and programs to desensitize our society to sin (and normalize it) for a long time. So, if you want biblical policy, we need a culture that does not promote unbiblical policy. Unfortunately, Christians reward the businesses and media that promote sin and alter our culture to an unbiblical policy and then hope for biblical policy.
This is a basic causation analysis. Christians partially cause the society to be the way it is and then complain about the way it is. We are “victims” just like everyone else; refusing to acknowledge our responsibility for the result.
In I Thessalonians 5:21-22, Paul says, “But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil.” In my opinion, Christians have not been examining everything carefully. Instead, with respect to most things, we have been conformed to the worldly views of our nation and accept its determinations of what is good and evil. Realize that in the last few decades, our nation has been altered from a nation of Christian principles to a nation of moral relativism. Thus, we cannot trust its examination of things and must independently examine everything for ourselves.
Obviously, all the nuances of this analysis are not included here. One could write an entire book on motives and details. I simply wanted to convey the very basic truth that as Christians, we are not victims; we are part of the cause. Society will continue to erode until Christians decide to stop rewarding that erosion, and it won’t happen one second sooner.
*The media gives you programming for free in exchange for being able to expose you to advertisements. When you expend your time viewing or listening to a program, they sell your time to the advertisers and make money. So the more time you give them, the more money they make, the less time, the less money they make. So when you spend your time watching programming, you are voting for more of that substantive programming.
