Resources for the Day

I wanted to provide our members with some resources that will be helpful as we process the recent Supreme Court decision regarding same-sex marriage.  Please note the following.

The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the SBC, led by Dr. Russell Moore, is our convention's cultural and public policy arm and is a great resource for a host of topics. Quoting from the ERLC website:

 The Ethics Religious Liberty Commission is an entity of the Southern Baptist Convention. The ERLC is dedicated to engaging the culture with the gospel of Jesus Christ and speaking to issues in the public square for the protection of religious liberty and human flourishing. Our vision can be summed up in three words: kingdom, culture and mission.

A second resource is the blogsite of Dr. Al Mohler, who is the President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.  Dr. Mohler provides a daily podcast called "The Daily Briefing." It's a twenty minute summary of breaking news and trends related to culture and a biblical world view. He has also written extensively about same-sex marriage and other current topics.  His latest article is a review of the Supreme Court Decision on same-sex marriage.
