U.S. Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Gay Marriage Nationwide

President Barack Hussein Obama stated that “America should be proud” of the 5-4 Supreme Court Decision in favor of our nation  accepting gay marriage.  Furthermore he stated that “We have made our union a little more perfect.”  What really hurts those who know the Lord, is that this ruling by the oligarchy known as the Supreme Court comes close to July Fourth.  Our nation has left the Judeo Christian ethic, and our morals more so  resemble classic Hindu philosophy– anything is all right just so you do not hurt anyone.  Ten years ago this would have been inconceivable.  The law of the land no longer resembles the law of God.  What happened in order to enable this sanctioning of what the Bible calls an abomination?  The millennial generation does not believe in moral absolutes, and our nation’s Bible base has obviously been rejected.  For two hundred years our Biblical foundation has made us the envy of the world as we received blessing after blessing.  Our president said this country is no longer a Christian nation during his first inaugural.  This ruling is what he was talking about.  This ruling is the legacy of Obamanation, pure and simple.

Patrick Henry was the vocal firebrand of the American Revolution.  He thundered “Give me liberty or give me death” at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Richmond, Virginia prior to the Revolutionary War.  Later, he refused to run for president because of his disappointment of the Supreme Court being given too much power.  In those days we did not experience fallout from this grave error since we were truly one people: we were nearly 99% Protestant Christian on July Fourth, 1776.  But now we see the wisdom of his mindset.  One conservative Supreme Court justice, Anthony Kennedy, threw his vote to the side of  the liberal camp on this occasion and determined the outcome.  Yes, one man trampled on over two hundred years of American history, our Christian heritage, and made gay marriages the law of the land.  People in grass roots America still believe sodomy to be a perversion but our intelligentsia knows so much more!  The people in power call us fly over country and do not respect the backbone of America and our beliefs, nor do they desire to truly represent us.

This ruling has created several “firsts.”  It is the first time in the recorded annuls of man’s history that homosexual marriage has been made law.  Although this lifestyle was replete throughout the Roman Empire, even among the emperors themselves, marriage was never an option.  Likewise the Greeks and many other ancient civilizations were affected by homosexuality, but once again, marriage was not on the table.  It is the first time that a great many in the public eye of our nation are going against their own consciences because they fear man more than they fear the Lord.  I watched Fox News today and it was plain to me that the newscasters were trying to sanitize a ruling that they knew was wrong.  It is the first time that the laws about sodomy in Russia and Uganda are more Biblical than those of the United States of America, since the laws of those nations still perceive homosexuality as a sinful lifestyle.

How do we function as Christians as we observe our nation rejecting our Godly heritage?  We must realize that no matter how God judges this nation (…And He Is And He Will!), that He will watch over the body of Christ just as He protected the Israelites during the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities.  God knows them who are His and will protect them in the palm of His Great Hand.  Praise the Lord Jesus Christ who said “My kingdom is not of this world.”  You and I need to simply perform the will of God in our lives the best way we can, given the circumstances.  Seek the Lord and His kingdom first.  Keep your focus upon Him and Him alone.  The following is a favorite verse of mine in times like these:  Isaiah 26:3  King James Version   (KJV)  Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Do you have homosexual friends?  If you do, that is wonderful.  Exemplify to them the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ and encourage them to repent from this sin.  You and I are sinners, and outside of repentance and receiving forgiveness from our Lord and Savior, we are no better than anyone else.  Christianity is one beggar showing another beggar where to find bread.  Love the sinner and encourage them to turn from their sins.

The following are the passages in the Bible, God’s Holy Word, that are the foundational basis of holy wedlock that God determined from the beginning:

Genesis 2: 21-24

And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

**********

Matthew 19: 3-6  King James Version  (KJV) 

The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and saying unto him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?

And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,

And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?

Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

This is the only marriage that has ever been sanctioned by God.

Maranatha, Pastor Steve

One thought on “U.S. Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Gay Marriage Nationwide

  1. I fear judgment befalling America by James Dobson

    Even though Friday’s re-definition of marriage by the U. S. Supreme Court was anticipated, I have found myself grieving over its implications for my country and for Western civilization itself. This radical decree will have a devastating affect on every dimension of culture.

    I grieve most for what it will do to our children, our grandchildren and future generations. They will be taught that right is wrong and wrong is right, and that the teachings of Scripture are unreliable and inaccurate. How outrageous it is that boys and girls barely out of babyhood are already being introduced in some schools to perverse adult behavior.

    Soon, public school textbooks throughout the country will be re-written and re-illustrated to conform to today’s ruling. It matters not that these revisions will contradict the beliefs and convictions of their parents. It will soon become the law of the land.

    Many more vulnerable kids will grow up in homes with same-sex parents, obviously lacking either masculine or feminine role models. They are the real victims of the Court’s ruling.

    Adults will suffer, too. I believe a barrage of court cases has already been planned against those who hold to politically incorrect views of marriage. Many of us will be dragged into court to be prosecuted or subjected to civil judgments. Some will lose their jobs, while others forfeit their businesses. Some will be persecuted and ridiculed and fined. Some may go to prison as the years unfold. Since same-sex marriage has now been determined to be a universal human right by the highest court in the land, it will trump religious liberty, churches, seminaries, Christian schools, businesses and a host of individual liberties. I also fear that judgment will befall this once great nation.

    Here is the question of the hour. The organization I lead, Family Talk, is in accord with the National Organization for Marriage. This is an excerpt of its editorial released Friday:

    We reject this decision and so will the American people. It represents nothing but judicial activism, legislating from the bench, with a bare majority of the Justices on the Supreme Court exercising raw political power to impose their own preferences on marriage when they have no constitutional authority to do so. It is a lawless ruling that contravenes the decisions of over 50 million voters and their elected representatives. It is a decision that is reminiscent of other illegitimate Court rulings such as Dred Scott and Roe v. Wade and will further plunge the Supreme Court into public disrepute.

    Make no mistake about it: The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) [and my organization, Family Talk] and countless millions of Americans do not accept this ruling. Instead, we will work at every turn to reverse it.

    The U.S. Supreme Court does not have the authority to redefine something it did not create. Marriage was created long before the United States and our constitution came into existence. Our constitution says nothing about marriage. The majority who issued today’s ruling have simply made it up out of thin air with no constitutional authority.

    In his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” Dr. Martin Luther King discussed the moral importance of disobeying unjust laws, which we submit applies equally to unjust Supreme Court decisions. Dr. King evoked the teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas that an unjust law or decision is one that is “a human law that is not rooted in eternal law or natural law.”

    Today’s decision of the Supreme Court lacks both constitutional and moral authority. There is no eternal or natural law that allows for marriage to be redefined.

    Today’s decision is by no means the final word concerning the definition of marriage; indeed it is only the beginning of the next phase in the struggle. NOM is committed to reversing this ruling over the long term and ameliorating it over the short term.

    Speaking now for our organization, Family Talk, I believe it is time for this nation to hold State Constitutional Conventions, which would allow certain provisions within the Constitution to be reaffirmed. Among these possibilities would be a provision to set term limits on judges and justices. Another clause would limit the scope of their power. Unelected, unaccountable judges would no longer override the other two co-equal branches of government. Finally, language would be inserted to restore what Abraham Lincoln referred to in his Gettysburg Address as government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” Wouldn’t that be a novel idea in the 21st century?

    I’ll end my comments by quoting the final words from the Manhattan Declaration, written by the late Charles Colson, professor Robby George and Dr. Timothy George. They wrote:

    “… Because we honor justice and the common good, we will not comply with any edict that purports to compel our institutions to participate in abortions, embryo-destructive research, assisted suicide and euthanasia, or any other anti-life act; nor will we bend to any rule purporting to force us to bless immoral sexual partnerships, treat them as marriages or the equivalent, or refrain from proclaiming the truth, as we know it, about morality and immorality and marriage and the family. We will fully and ungrudgingly render to Caesar what is Caesar’s. But under no circumstances will we render to Caesar what is God’s.”
