"What we're losing, what we're risking, is when we don't live the sexual difference rightly that calls men and women to communion, what is ultimately at stake is we're not going to see the call to holy communion with Christ," West told CBN News.
West said he believed the push to legalize gay marriage was a form a spiritual attack.
"Put it this way," he explained, "If the union of man and woman really is the revelation of Christ's love for the Church, then it would make sense that an enemy would want to attack the union of man and woman precisely to prevent us from entering the union of Christ and the Church."...
....since many evangelicals do not care to deal with hard issues related to much of anything real in today's society, such as the regular injection of aborted fetal cell lines into our blood for "health" or the use of abortifacients for "marriage growth", then we have only two camps to choose from.... darwin-freud or the pope.
of course rcc will make their theology to shape the future of their church!
and darwin will gladly take on adam's seed through eugenics....
....but you'd think, those who love and trust the scriptures, would care to find a biblical approach, and a biblical understanding of the body that they would..... na!
let us join together under the fig tree and pick at the rcc for being so filled with idolatry and go back to sleep.
George Weigel has described Theology of the Body as "one of the boldest reconfigurations of Catholic theology in centuries." He goes on to say it is a "kind of theological time bomb set to go off with dramatic consequences, sometime in the third millennium of the Church." Weigel believes that it has barely begun to "shape the Church's theology, preaching, and religious education" but when it does "it will compel a dramatic development of thinking about virtually every major theme in the Creed."

I like your thought process on this issue. Here is how it works in my mind; they talk about gay marriage instead of the lifestyle that leads to it. They talk about late term abortions instead of abortions themselves. In other words, a baby in the last stages of a pregnancy is a human, but the one just conceived isnâ€™t. They talk about radical feminism (that on the left) instead of the evils of any form of feminism.
When they do it this way, then the undiscerning only sees the issue presented instead of the root or cause of these issues. This paragraph mirrors what I see from all forms of media and our society and it has infiltrated the professing church to a great degree.
Very insightful. It is so grievous that so few people seem to see the dire implications of granting legal status to so-called "gay marriage." What an amazingly effective campaign Satan has waged on our allegedly "Christian" nation, to convince so many that our marriage laws are inherently unjust and discriminatory and need to be changed. How can so many people be so blind to the fact that this is a Satanic attack on the gospel itself and on the Judeo-Christian cultural heritage of our nation? How can so many fail to see the implications for free speech and freedom of religion if the legal definition of marriage is changed? Future generations of young people who will be subjected to aggressive homofascist brainwashing in the public schools and be forced to put up with the "crazy" demands of sexually perverted classmates who want to take same-sex dates to the prom and cross-dress for graduation. Countless Christians will be sued, fined, and excluded from many jobs for their refusal to comply with the corrupt values of an increasingly pagan culture. There is NO MORE IMPORTANT ISSUE that our nation faces today than to preserve the family by saying NO to every effort to change the good, just, and wholesome laws which reserve the legal right to marriage to heterosexual couples.
yes, this "theology of the body" is virtually non-existent in the evangelical or "protestant" (lack of better word) church and is sorely, sorely needed.
our approach has been to take on the strategy of the predarwinists, who said that everything is chemical, add to it that we are degenerating and Christ will rapture us from the effects of how we live, and then we just kill everything off that might make us sick.
through study of the body, we find, that the human body is dependent on other organisms to survive.
in other words, chemical lobotomizing everything does not lead to life.. but death.
and then we accepted the chemical BC pill to chemically lobotomize the natural processes of the woman. we see not the whole body, but rather a little arrow that magically shoots out the problem organ process. and so we dismiss our abortifacient practices.
and now we are in the next phase of this, if we have chemically lobotomized ourselves, the men and woman begin to look the same and so gay becomes normal.
just as just war theory is lost, so is a credible, biblical, full spectrum theology of the bible is urgently needed.
we left Catholicism and converted to Darwinism. I say remove all idols. Darwin does not save. He brought us abortion.... no?
"West said he believed the push to legalize gay marriage was a form a spiritual attack."
Has he only recognised this now?
The battle between God and Satan has been going since the Garden of Eden.
This latest strategy of Satan was first to legalize homosexual practice then to legalize so called same-sex marriage. Both of these are a direct attack on the Bible.
The reprobates in their ignorance will perceive all this as discrimination in society and expect the sodomites to receive equal rights in "marriage." In fact it is not marriage and never can be - Because marriage can never be an abomination.
Clearly in the spiritual battle Satan has taken over the hearts of politicians and bureaucrats in society and also poisoned the churches with Liberalism. Non-Christians become Liberals in the churches like the bishops in the Anglican/Episcopalian false witness.
The battle is continuing and Satan's forces have been provided with influential positions such as President of USA and Prime Minister of UK, alongside other such positions in western nations, the UN and the EU.
