“Preach the gospel. Call people to obedient faith. It still works”- A Hobby Lobby Reaction



Larry Rogier, a Michigan Pastor whose insightful blog at , has a couple of smart posts at his place on a Christian’s reaction to the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby decision. Here’s the first



Rogier characterizes the decision as ” a small, minor, and likely short-lived victory for freedom.”



This is my assessment, not Rogier’s, but I wonder if he wouldn’t agree with me that far too often Christians confuse the two kingdoms.



Here’s another quote:

For those whose Christian hope is in America, they will be found sorely disappointed. This holiday weekend is a good time to remember that America is not the church, and the church and the gospel doesn’t depend on America.

HL being free from providing all forms of birth control isn’t going to bring revival. I doubt your church attendance will be higher this weekend because of this. In fact, I doubt many people in your church will know much about this case. So I encourage you not to change that.

Preach the gospel. Call people to obedient faith. It still works.
