For example, the Catholic Church is deciding whether or not people that do not follow the beliefs and values of the church, should get communion. Communion is the central part of the Catholic Church's service. It would seem, to me, that if your values do not align with the Bible and the teachings of the church, that one would either not participate in communion, or take your belief system to a church that aligns itself to your, and the world's, value system.
Some seek to punish the church for standing with the Word of God by removing it's 501 (c) 3 status and other non-profit protections. The government already imposes some limits on speech, hiring, and how it's funds can be used by veiled threats, and court actions.
The church in many ways has allowed this to happen to themselves by making the standards of the church more earthly, and less Godly; by allowing sin and the culture to enter the church to improve attendance, and keep money coming in. Unfortunately, when you give the devil a crack in the wall he pushes his way into room, and we pay the price.
The church needs to begin to make a stand, and push back against this dying culture. To surrender, is to condemn souls to an eternity in hell.
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. 1 Peter 5:8
