Philippa Thompson and Brendan Ng (NZ Baptist, September) may think “extending marriage equality to gay couples ... will not destroy Christian marriage any more than inter-racial marriage has,” and no doubt it won’t while people are determined to marry according to Biblical principles. However, racial equality is right but homosexuality is wrong. God made man in his own image (Genesis 1:26) and Jesus Christ died on the cross for everyone (2 Corinthians 5:15), which settles the racist issue as we are all of Adam’s race.

I hope Ian Ford (NZ Baptist, July) doesn’t make haste to leave the Baptist Church. I agree that it is indeed a time to stand. However, I am not sure that it is to be counted. (Counted by who?)
I have been deeply challenged recently by Ezekiel 22:30 where God says, “I looked for a man [or/and a woman] among them who would stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found none.”
