The Corner


My former colleague David Klinghoffer has written an article for Beliefnet about gay marriage. In the course of it, he writes, “Any Bible-believer must agree that it’s God’s will, not man’s intellect, which decides profound moral questions.” It’s an unhelpful formulation. Of course man’s intellect does not “decide” moral questions, but it can discern the answers to them. Also, I would think that a Bible-believer can maintain that it is God’s nature rather than His “will” that compels goodness.
