The problem I have with such opposition is not with their clear
witness to their convictions, but to their continuing to assume that
we have not heard them. In 25 days Ernest and I will begin our fourth
decade of commitment. Yet many seem to think that we have not heard
them unless we can say, "Well, let's start back at Square 1 and decide
whether we will sin against God if we make a life commitment to each
other." And they think we must go back to Square 1 whenever anyone,
regardless of how new to the discussion, raises the question again.
Otherwise, WE are judged hard of hearing.
There is a critical earwax problem here. Those that have ears to hear
need to start doing so.
I stayed at Square 1 for 28 years before I had a relationship at all.
I was 36 when Ernest and I made our commitment, after years of soul
searching. Enough already.
Let the opposition tell us what God is doing in their lives, not what
God is doing in ours.
