2. When new moral views become law
Now that homosexual marriage has been legalised in Australia, what is his view? Notice how he dodges the journalist's questions:
Mr Morrison abstained from voting for marriage equality when it passed the House of Representatives in 2018, and he voted "no" in the national survey.
When asked if he is still personally opposed to same-sex marriage, the prime minister replied: "It's law. And I'm glad that the change has now been made and people can get on with their lives. That's what I'm happy about."
When pressed on whether his opinions have changed, he told reporters in Perth: "I always support the law of the country".
That was a terrible Christian witness to the nation.
So, he supports Australian law but won't own up to his current personal beliefs about homosexuality. I wonder, as a Pentecostal Christian, whether he accepts the Bible's view on the topic.
OUTinPerth, an LGBTIQ+ news source, observed ScoMo's views on homosexuality when a journalist interviewed him in Perth. Now he was supportive of same-sex couples being allowed to 'get on with their lives' because he 'always supports the law of the country'.
ScoMo would not be drawn into a discussion on whether he believed 'gay people would be sent to hell' – referring to the Israel Folau controversy.
Christian belief is that unrepentant gays and unrepentant, inoffensive lovely people from next door will share the same fate unless they demonstrate a continual trust in Jesus as Saviour.
3. His views on God
Leigh Sales of ABC's 7.30 grilled him on this topic: 'I'm not running for Pope,' Mr Morrison shot back. "I'm running for Prime Minister. And the theological questions are not ones that are actually, I think, germane to the political debate in this country'.
Then he defined faith as loving others, 'which is what I've always believed'. His parents taught by example, serving in local youth organisations, boys and girls brigade, for the youth in their community. 'They taught me a life of faith and service and that's what my faith means to me. It means service and caring for others'.
He had an ideal public opportunity to declare his belief in the Lord God Almighty and Jesus the Saviour who offers salvation to the world. He turned to the 'loving others' definition of who God is. In my view he dodged the issues regarding attributes of God for a Christian PM.
When will ScoMo have the courage to lead the country in repentance and prayer for rain? He stated when it rained in Albury: 'I do pray for that rain. And I'd encourage others who believe in the power of prayer to pray for that rain and to pray for our farmers. Please do that'.
We heard former PM, Malcolm Turnbull, state, 'We can't make it rain'. Step up to the mark ScoMo. You know the One who sends and withholds rain: God the Father 'lets the sun rise for all people, whether they are good or bad. He sends rain to those who do right and to those who do wrong'.
