"I agree with the primate ('Hiltz: Church needs to know its purpose', Jan. 2018, p. 8) that in the church's deliberation over changing its marriage canon, St. Paul might remind us of his counsel to the Ephesians to be 'humble and gentle and patient with one another ...' (Eph. 4:2-3)". "I don't believe Paul's counsel would stop there, however. Several verses later in the very same chapter, Paul writes: 'Now this I affirm and insist on in the Lord: you must no longer live as the nations live' (Eph. 4:17). These words of Paul should give us pause in our headlong rush to change the marriage canon, for they remind us both about who we are to be about. .... We are to shine the light of Christ into the darkness, not reflect the signs and symptoms of a disordered creation back upon itself".
