What’s closer to the truth is that it is now politically ‘safer’ for an entity such as World Vision to support homosexuality, and so they’ve gone public with what was likely to have been the position of its core leadership anyway. That may sound cynical to some of you, but we live in a day when many religious leaders are openly taking positions so diametrically opposed to the clearly stated laws of God that it’s hard to imagine that such positions were recently decided upon. Thus far in my experience such things are more indicative of long-held beliefs that were kept quiet for fear of the loss of support. David didn’t just suddenly kill a man to cover up Bathsheba’s pregnancy. If he’d honored the Law in the first place, he wouldn’t have slept with her, and prior to that he’d refused to follow the Law when he failed to punish his own daughter’s rapist. Thus we see that David’s seeming sudden departure from the Law was part of a pattern of lawlessness that had been emerging for some time, and so it is with most of us.
I urge all of you who stand for righteousness to find other avenues to support missionary work. Indeed, support your local missionaries directly, so that most of the money doesn’t go toward paying the organizations who take your money then make the missionaries raise their own support anyway… We can do better.
