    If ‘traditionalist sexual morality’ refers to the church’s traditional understanding of what the bible teaches about sexual morality, it has never occurred to me in my quarter-century of adult life as a Christian to say that it is losing the moral high ground in the larger culture. The moral high ground is always occupied by God’s Word and those who listen to Him. Messiah occupied the moral high ground even when He was suspended over it on the spikes pounded through his wrists and feet. ‘Let God be found true, but every man a liar’.

    Perhaps, however, that’s only quibbling about semantics, because I agree wholly with Rev. Mohler that we cannot abandon the Scriptures or deny our Lord. The reactions of rebellious Cain and Sodom when confronted by the ‘moral high ground’, and the initial reactions of pagan Rome to the Christians there, are nothing more than examples of unregenerate men behaving like what they are. What really matters is not what they do, but, as Rev. Mohler seems to be saying, what we do when we are a member of the moral majority of ‘one man plus God’.

    When the moral high ground is attacked, we need to recognise it as God allowing the attackers to expose their own moral bankruptcy. That may be distressing to observe and experience but it should not cause us to falter in our faithful witness to the truth.
