"... for Better, for Worse, for Richer, for Poorer, in Sickness and in Health, Until Death Do Us Part"

Not if your wife has Alzheimer's, according to one prominent "defender of family values," dismantled by Vox Nova's Mark Gordon — Robertson’s Attack on the Family.

Noting that "in the Evangelical milieu of my youth, this kind of make-it-up-as-you-go-along thinking was prevalent, and extended to everything from practical ethics to the most profoundly important theological questions," lacking as it does "any effective check by authoritative tradition, the reasoned arguments of theologians, or the binding statements of predecessors."

One needs to examine the foundations of the cathedra from which such ex cathdra pronouncements are made.

Re: Steve,

Indeed. If you stand on the truth, the full deposit of faith, and tradition, you stand on the rock as our Lord promised.

If you change that for the shifting sands of "if it feels right do it" (the self-conscience of Protestantism), your house will fall. In our case, we watched Robinson's house fall, and great will be the fall...of his community...and our nation.

Many in the left believe that you can make up withever beliefs you want and justify it as "your truth." For those that would oppose them to do the same just greases the skids to a new dark age.

The article gives credibility where none is deserved by using language equivocally.

It should be remembered what the vox nova boys mean by authoritative tradition. For the vox nova boys authoritative tradition is an evolving ,("make-it-up-as-you-go"), creature in the service or worldly vice. Where that same authoritative tradition will inevitably recognize homosexual sex and a good or par if not superior.

Re: LTG,

Simply because a leftist, post-modern (read, nihilistic) website is the bearer of bad news doesn't make the news any less bad. To give the advice Robinson gave is a violation of the sanctity of marriage, and a wink and nod to violations of the human person.

Our Lord Himself solemnly told us that one of the ways in which a soul is judged will be whether they visited and comforted the sick. "Amen, I say, whatsoever you do to the least of these, you did to me." [Matt 25:40]

To say that marriage is violable and changeable is to accede to the leftist argument. The time for half-measures and excuses is long gone; we stand or fall on every word of the faith.
