The First Amendment & Common Sense, Victorious at the U.S. Supreme Court

A coalition of evangelical leaders Aug. 29 released the “Nashville Statement,” an affirmation of what God's Word says about human sexuality.

We believe the statement deserves the support of CMC members and other Bible–believing Christians. Click here to add your name to the document.

The Nashville Statement is a product of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, an evangelical coalition founded in 1987. It is a straightforward interpretation of the Bible on issues of sexuality. It affirms that God made mankind in His image and created the institution of marriage, designing it as a union of one man and one woman.

The statement didn't endear the council to large segments of the nation, and even to some prominent voices in the Church. Analyzing those comments shows these people either don't acknowledge the truth of God's Word or wish the Bible doesn't say what it clearly says about these issues.

Social media feeds in particular have featured bizarre condemnations of the statement. Perhaps the strangest came from Nashville's mayor who, offended at the statement's name, apparently doesn't understand the long–standing tradition of naming theological statements after the cities in which they were approved and released.

We especially appreciate the boldness of the statement. It shouldn't be controversial to note that the Bible reserves marriage for the union of one man and one woman. But the statement goes beyond that, rejecting the notion that “the approval of homosexual immorality or transgenderism is a matter of moral indifference about which otherwise faithful Christians should agree to disagree.”

It's a clear calling to stand with God's Word or in opposition to it, and we're proud to affirm the Bible as authoritative in these matters (and all other matters).

Erick Erickson, the brilliant author and editor of The Resurgent website and an original signer of the Nashville Statement, wrote an entire book about the assault on religious liberties in this nation, “You Will Be Made to Care.” The title perfectly summarizes the progressive Left's attitude toward Bible–affirming evangelicals on matters of human sexuality.

“Sorry about what your book says, folks, you're going to do things our way now” is a reasonable summary of their attitude – and that attitude has crept into our laws and even in some sectors of the Church.

We're proud to align with the courageous evangelical leaders who this week responded to the craziness of the culture with a bold affirmation of what all authentic believers really care about – the Bible and what it says about how mankind should interact with each other.

We strongly encourage you to sign the Nashville statement, and share this article with your social media audiences.
