Yes, I love you, even if I cannot celebrate what you celebrate, I still love you. Disagreeing with you does not mean I hate you.

Yes, I respect you, even if I cannot endorse certain decisions you make and lifestyle choices you make.
Just because I cannot endorse your lifestyle choices, it does not mean I do not respect you as a person.

Yes, I will fight for you if anyone dares bully you or slander you or paint you with a broad paintbrush of hateful stereotypes born out of ignorance.
As my faith has become a victim of media bullying, slander and deliberate misrepresentation in the hope of silencing my voice, I will never stand by and watch you be bullied.

All I ask is that you do the same for me.

C. S. Lewis

“He must increase and I decrease.” He will be infinitely merciful to our repeated failures; I know no promise that He will accept a deliberate compromise. For He has, in the last resort, nothing to give us but Himself; and He can give that only in so far as our self-affirming will retires and makes room for Him in our souls.

D.A. Carson

People do not drift toward Holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated.

E. L. Allen

Honestly, what use do we make of our God-given reason? I know what use I make of it. I use it chiefly to provide reasons for what I want to do without admitting it is for pursuing some personal ambition. A man may have his conscience so well disciplined and trained that, instead of blazing a trail before him, it is like a pet dog which just trots obediently at his heels and never so much as barks! “If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!”
