If Christianity becomes radically marginalized, having no cultural power at all, perhaps Christianity will have to return to its essence: Christ, the Gospel, the forgiveness of sins. Because no matter how much people wish to erase anything that restricts them and makes them feel guilty, if Christianity is true (and it is), the moral reality remains. It’s like thinking we can destroy nature; nature always destroys us. Sin kills. People in a society that give itself over to sin will feel those sins. The Gospel will become good news again. Christ will save them. And, ironically, once the Gospel predominates again in the Church, cultural influence–including the Christian view of sexual morality–may well come back as a byproduct.
