A Christian's Moral Responsibility
It has been said that the Bible is silent on issues concerning moral responsibility in regards to homosexual partners receiving medical benefits or the institution of marriage by same-sex partners, but I believe the Bible does speak of a Christian's Moral Responsibility.
Ephesians 6:5-9 - Slaves, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ; not by way of eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart. With good will render service, as to the Lord, and not to men, knowing that whatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord, whether slave or free. And masters, do the same things to them, and give up threatening, knowing that both their Master and yours is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him.
1 Peter 2:18-19 - Servants, be submissive to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and gentle, but also to those who are unreasonable. For this finds favor, if for the sake of conscience toward God a person bears up under sorrows when suffering unjustly.
Upon your first readings of Ephesians 6 and 1 Peter 2, you might miss the general application of these texts. Paul and Peter, both Apostles, lived in a time in which slavery was rampant. It is believed that of the 7.5 million people who lived in Rome, 2.5 million people were slaves. In the course of history, slavery was removed on account of Christendom in England and here in the United States, but note that neither Paul nor Peter take a stance against slavery in their writings. What is their principle? God's Word is telling us that we are to do good to all people regardless of the circumstance we live in.
Looking at how homosexuality has infected our society and the supposed rights they have living together in their sin, makes me sick! Am I too preach against it? You bet I am! Am I to try to change our government institutions in the way they are going, which is their nature, sin? I don't think so. My moral responsibility is the same as the slave, to do good to all people so that those around us and over us may see our good works and glorify God upon Christ's second coming.
