(Marry a Dog - Continued from page 1)
that some people could become emotionally attached to these robots and a desire to marry them.So, what worldview would allow something like that? You won’t find this in some primitive society in India. This kind of mentality emerges out of modern Western societies which are strongly influenced by Naturalism. After all, Naturalismdoesn’t acknowledge any kind of transcendent morality. If it feels good, do it.To some, this topic may seem a little over the top. After all, there has to be a line drawn somewhere, right? Well, whowould have believed, even fifteen years ago, that homosexual marriage would be legal right here in the United States.Who would have believed that there would be entire countries, in various places around the world, which would have le-galized it, and that the push to make it even more prevalent is well on its way in many other places? And that is not all.There are interest groups which are trying to push the envelope even further. These groups are pushing to make it mor-ally and legally acceptable for there to be sexual relations between adults and children, multiple partners and even ani-mals. No, it is really not much of a stretch to go from homosexual marriage, to bestiality, to marriage with robots.Right about now you may be wondering why we are even dealing with this topic. It is because the origin of the idea thatthis kind of behavior is okay comes directly out of one’s worldview. As Christians, we believe that this kind of thinkinggoes completely against the purposes and ways of God. But, if other people believe it is okay, what can we do about it?At this point we are put in the position to either put up or shut up. It is one thing to have an internal sense, or a religiousbelief, that this kind of behavior is wrong. It is something else all together to know
it is wrong and how to effectivelyput forth our position. And to take it one step further, how do we create an environment where our values (the values of the Christian faith) are the ones which are followed by society and are the law of the land, rather than the values of theNaturalist?There is only one thing we can do in order to ultimately make a difference. We are going to have to learn how to be ef-fective witnesses for Christ in order to share the gospel – and do it in an intelligent way. We not only must know the mes-sage of the gospel, we have to know the beliefs of the Naturalist (and those of the other worldviews). We not only mustknow what we believe, but why we believe it. We must firmly grasp why our belief is right and others are wrong. It usedto be that it wasn’t so essential for the everyday Christian to have such extensive knowledge in these areas. But now wecannot get around it, if we are serious about making an impact for Christ in the world.
