David Platt today preached one of the most clear and convicting messages I’ve heard at Southern Seminary’s chapel. From Genesis 1, he looked at four biblical foundations relating to God and his dealing with us. He then offered four cultural implications relating to abortion, sexuality, justice, and the Great Commission. If you have the chance, make sure to listen to this sermon.
“I am zealous to show that followers of Christ do not have the option of picking and choosing which social issues we’re going to apply biblical truths to. I am zealous to show that the same gospel that compels us to combat poverty compels us to defend marriage; and the same gospel that compels us to war against sex trafficking compels us to war against sexual immorality in all its forms…. [W]e do not have the option of deciding which battles we’re going to fight and which battles we’re going to flout.”
