I must write. I can’t help it. I see the travesty that has just come down from the U.S. Supreme Court and I’m grieved. SCOTUS has taken something that God has given to us, marriage, and turned it into something profane before the LORD. Just as Lot was grieved over the actions of his fellow citizens of Sodom, so too, should we be grieved at what SCOTUS has done today.
As Isaiah said:
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.
It is tragic that our country has completely turned its back on God and His word. Tragic in the sense that now an authoritative body has declared to those men and women in our country that struggle with the sin of homosexuality, “do what is right in your own eyes.”
I wasn’t planning on writing on this topic because so many have done so. If you have lived in a vacuum, then you don’t know about Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. Hobby Lobby is fighting for religious freedom that affects everyone, even the atheists. What is at the core of this case is the freedom to live, work and act in this country with the freedom of conscience. In other words, does the government have a right to bind our consciences for purposes of advancing their agendas?
I know that many people are waiting with baited and stinky breath on the United States Supreme Court to tell us what the definition of marriage is according to the Constitution, but the Supreme Being of all eternity has already defined it for the Christian. In other words, it matters not what the Supreme Court says, as Christians, Jesus has done so for us.
Matthew 19:4-6 And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? 6 So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
