STATEMENT ON SUPEME COURT MARRIAGE DECISION

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.”

HOWEVER THE COURT RULES

We will soon be hearing the opinion of the U.S. Supreme Court concerning same-sex marriage in America. Those on the left demand what they call “marriage equality” nation-wide, and those on the right are calling for the Federal Government to stay out of the marriage business. Their thinking seems to be “Let the people decide by the democratic process on a state-by-state basis how marriage will be defined.” Both, the left and the right are wrong on this one. Marriage is not the product of popular consensus or opinion of the left or the right. It is an institution created by, defined by and overseen by God himself—the God in whom we declare we place our trust!

Government didn’t create marriage. Federal or state governments cannot, therefore recreate marriage in any form. The only obligation and responsibility government has concerning marriage is to recognize it as God has defined it, and protect it as a foundational principle for the “pursuit of happiness.” But unfortunately, I haven’t heard this from today’s politicians. So it’s up to the clergy of this nation to once again lead the way to American revival. One cannot separate American peace and prosperity from American morality. The very Father of our country taught us:

“The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.”(-George Washington’s farewell Address)

The U.S. Supreme Court should simply declare that marriage is not a creation of human government, but rather an institution created by God, codified in natural law, and verified through human experience as the union of one male and one female unrelated by blood. It is the duty of nations as well as of men to recognize it as such, and to prefer it for the betterment of civil society above other social arrangements.

As a circle with four corners would cease to be a circle, so would a marriage of two people of the same sex cease to be a marriage. Calling the moon the sun does not make it so, and so it is with marriage.

However the U.S. Supreme Court rules, national leaders and people of good faith and common sense must take up the cause of restoring time-tested Biblical values to our culture, and the clergy must lead the way.

OF DOLEZAL AND ROOF

It seems hardly possible that the former head of Spokane Washington NAACP, Rachel Dolezal, and Dylan Roof who massacred nine Black Christians in Charleston would have anything at all in common, but the truth is they have one very important thing in common, the very thing that brought their names to our awareness. Each one caught public attention by doing something seemingly irrational but something they saw fit in their own eyes.

This is what happens when a nation begins to move away from being one nation under God. We become many nations, many people, under our own personal system of right and wrong. That’s why Ms. Dolezal could justify deceiving people about her race. She believes she is black, therefore she is. Dylan Roof believed he should murder black people because as he said, they were raping our women and taking over the country. They were each following their own laws rather than submitting to God’s law. Dolezal violated the Ninth Commandment: “Thou shall not bear false witness,” and Roof violated the Sixth Commandment: “Thou shalt not kill.” So what is the lesson to be learned? If we are to see a return to civility, we must return to the God of the Bible (not a god of our own choosing) or we will continue and accelerate down this path of national demise. Noah Webster was right when he said,

All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.”

In that one statement we find the reason for, and the solution to the increasing bizarre and evil behavior that has become too common place in our land. It’s time for a revival of the idea that made us a great nation, the idea that we are “One Nation Under God.” Let our leaders proclaim it; let our people live it, and we will pass on to our children the land of liberty that our parents passed on to us.

Report from D.C,

It was a great day, yesterday, when we went to D.C. to stand for authentic marriage and to pray for the Supreme Court justices getting ready to hear the case on Tuesday that may very well cause God to withdraw His grace from us further if we, as a nation, disregard His rules for order and right. hanks again for joining us on the bus to D.C.

There were at least 10,000 in attendance, but don’t expect to see reports from the mainstream media. They just don’t want to admit that His Church is alive!

Group at SCOTUS

New York Faith & Freedom at the Supreme Court.

Now we must continue to pray and be a witness wherever we can until the Judges announce their decision in June. If the court rules against the Bible, then we will continue to obey God rather than man, and we will continue to pray and work until we see revival in the land.

If you couldn’t attend, but still want to help in the fight for our religious liberties please join the New York Faith & Freedom Coalition, (Click the DONATE-JOIN link. That is the army that God is raising up for such a time as this. We dare not remain complacent. Our next meeting will be on May 17th at 6:30pm. Put it on your calendar now.
