The Point of Assault

At this point in history, when the major area of assault against Christianity in western culture is in the are of sexual morality, it is important and necessary to remember these words attributed to Martin Luther:
If I profess with the loudest voice and clearest exposition every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point that the world and the devil are at the moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christ. Where the battle rages is where the loyalty of the soldier is proved, and to be steady on all the battlefield besides is merely flight and disgrace if he flinches at that point. 
In other words, let us be clear - To deny Christ's teachings on sexual morality and marriage is to deny Christ.
