Yesterday I got a surprise response on Twitter to my article, “Five Reasons Not to Sign the Evangelicals for Marriage Equality Petition,” from the spokesperson for the group, Moody Bible Institute graduate Brandan Robertson.
It’s funny: during the interchange below I felt a bit like a beleaguered minority—but I shouldn’t have. I stand with the historic Christian tradition, with the great majority of Bible interpreters throughout time—and with the Bible itself. I’ve done the homework. Here I stand; I can do no other. I feel very sorry for Brandan and went to sleep praying for him last night.
Twitter “conversations” easily devolve into slogan-slinging. Could I have represented the Bible more accurately or winsomely? Should I have ignored this opportunity? Eager for your wisdom.
