This is an excellent article from one of my grad school professors, Richard Oster. In it, he reflects on disturbing recent developments in our culture, discusses a comparable cultural upheaval from the 4th century, and then ultimately puts it all into a kingdom perspective:

“It is time for those whose faith and practice rest on Scripture to get on with Kingdom business with or without the help of legal maneuvers and political and ecclesiastical machinations.”

I highly recommend the read.
