Are Christians Morally Required to Bake Cakes for Same-Sex Weddings?


Joseph Backholm

You’re in a conversation about marriage and someone says, “Christians are called to love people. That means they have to bake cakes for gay weddings. Otherwise, they’re just being mean.”

What would you say?

A few weeks ago we asked if Christians were legally required to bake the cake, but Christian love isn’t bound only by the laws of the land. Does that mean that we are morally required to do so?

It’s true that Christians are called to love our neighbors, but living in love does not mean doing whatever someone asks you to do.

In fact, there are some things Christians cannot do, even if it will make their neighbor really happy.
