The U.S. Supreme Court issued a decision today to legitimize same-sex unions as “marriage.” In doing so they have betrayed the spirit of the Constitution and demonstrated outright rebellion against the authority of God in whom we have previously declared is the One in whom we placed our trust. Now, five judges have chosen to usurp God’s authority by attempting to redefine what God has already defined and made known to us in the laws of nature, in the Holy Scriptures and throughout human history. This decision also overrules the voice of the people in 31 states that have enshrined traditional marriage in their state laws and constitutions. This is a clear shift from a democratic republic to an oligarchy which we must never accept. At a time when the nation is crying out for reconciliation the Supreme Court has stoked the fires of divisiveness and hate as will be demonstrated by the assaults against those who believe in God and in His order for humanity.
This is a time for choosing. Will we obey God or man? Never before has there been such an outrageous departure from the rule of law and the sovereignty of God. Our founders taught us that civil law must always be consistent with divine law. This has been the mainstay of the peace and prosperity we have known as a nation. But God will not be mocked. We will experience his wrath in unimaginable ways unless we cry out to God in repentance and return to His rule for social order. If we insist on being transformed into the “United Sodomite States of America” we will experience the same judgment that other nations have known when they have turned their backs on God’s rule for order and right.
The Church must lead the way; clergy must lead their congregations to stand for God’s order, or our grandchildren will curse us for handing them a culture of chaos. This is no time for “summer soldiers or sunshine patriots.” We must appeal to Heaven for mercy and work to elect leaders who will bring us back to the biblical foundation laid out by our founders.
Today, judgment was pronounced on our nation by the acts of godless judges, but the Supreme Judge of the Universe will have the last word. We must return. We must be once again, “One Nation Under God.”
