The Importance of A Cake   Leave a comment

What difference does it make? How would Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop have been harmed if he had simply ignored the clear fact that his customers were a gay couple and baked the cake? Alternatively, why couldn’t he have lied, said he was too busy and let Mr. Mullins and Mr. Craig continue in their delusion that everyone is now on board with homosexuality as a societal good?

Both scenarios would have required Mr. Phillips to violate God’s law – either by lying or by associating with sinful behavior – affecting his relationship with his Savior. To a Christian that relationship takes precedence over all others. We must obey God rather than men.

A historical example of this was First Night, when Romans and later rulers imposed their will on the sanctity of marriage by reserving the right to have sex with the bride on the wedding night. Christians refused because their view of marriage was different from that of the Roman authorities. Research St. Valentine for a fuller story, but the Romans really didn’t understand why Christians refused to comply. What was the big deal? How were the couples harmed? Get with society’s program, Christians! Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated.

No government official demand First Night today because Christians refused to comply and instead resisted assimilation.

Now, today, it is a cake. What’s the big deal? It’s just a cake! Society says sexual immorality is okay now. Just go along to get along and keep your beliefs to yourselves, Christians. Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated!

Today, it’s acake. Next year it may be the government telling my pastor that he must conduct homosexual wedding ceremonies. In a decade, it may well be that my church may be forced to hire an atheist as pastor because we are not allowed to discriminate and choose whom we will or will not associate with. We risk assimilation if we do not resist.

The time to set aside Romans 13 and take a principled stand on behalf of our faith has come, Christians! We must peacefully say “No, we will not comply when society says its agenda takes precedence over our faith. May be that stand will have nothing to do with baking a cake for a homosexual wedding, but Christians must decide if and when our beliefs must be more important to us than getting along with society.
