The Manhattan Declaration
This morning I heard Dr. Timothy George, Dean of Beeson Divinity School here in Birmingham, talking about the Manhattan Declaration on The Rick and Bubba Show. In short this is a document stating fundamental Christian convictions in three areas, the sanctity of human life, the definition of marriage, and religious liberty. I have had an opportunity to read through the document only once at this point in the morning, but from what I have read I believe it is a good thing. However, I would not encourage you to sign it haphazardly, but thoughtfully and prayerfully as it is a formal declaration with potential consequence. Our faith is under assault. We are long overdue in standing upon our convictions and expressing the gospel clearly in word and in practice.
