Lance encourages Baptists to ‘be faithful’ following lift of Alabama same-sex ‘marriage’ ban

BIRMINGHAM (TAB) — Following the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals’ ruling striking down the same-sex “marriage” ban in Alabama, Rick Lance, executive director of the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions, issued a video statement urging Christians to take action on the “moral outrage” that Baptists throughout the state feel. He said:

“We express strong disagreement with these actions therefore now more than ever we need to commit ourselves to praying for spiritual and moral awakening in our land. In the course of history Christians have often been at their best when they were opposed by government and culture. It is our time of opportunity to serve the Lord even in the midst of cultural captivity. … Let us be faithful to the biblical teachings concerning marriage. We’re not alone as we face these unprecedented challenges. Our Lord promised to be with us. He will keep His word.”
