Presidential Candidate Ted Cruz Urges Pastors to Preach About Biblical MarriageRepublican presidential candidate Ted Cruz has sent a letter to tens of thousands of pastors nationwide, urging them to preach about biblical marriage the weekend before the U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments over states’ rights regarding the definition of marriage. “On Tuesday, April 28, the United States Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments in favor of ‘same-sex marriage.’ How will the American church respond?” he asked. “The prophet Daniel described the people who know their God as people who do two things: display strength and take action (Daniel 11:32).” Cruz therefore asked that pastors deliver messages on biblical marriage on Sunday, April 26, and that they lead prayer services on the 28th as the oral arguments are considered. He exhorted Christians to cease being complacent about the matter. “We know that marriage is intended to be sacred, beautiful, and nourishing. If you do not influence your congregation’s understanding of marriage, who will fill the void? Hollywood? Divorce courts?” he asked. “The church has not shared the truth about marriage well; it is time to repent and commit ourselves to courage on this front.”Cruz, the son of an evangelical minister, then stated that the right side of history on the issue is God’s side.
