Where Jesus Changes Everything
Jesus Is Better
“But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them” (Hebrews 11:16). Today is a sad day for America. I must confess, although I fully anticipated today’s ruling by the Supreme Court legalizing so called same gender marriage in all fifty states, I never thought I would actually see something like this in my lifetime.
The response from the left has been predictable. President Obama Tweeted, “Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry just like anyone else.” He included the hashtag, #LoveWins.
On the right, and I do mean the right, Al Mohler predicted, “The threat to religious liberty represented by this decision is clear, present, and inevitable. He enjoins, “We cannot be silent, and we cannot join the moral revolution that stands in direct opposition to what we believe the Creator has designed, given, and intended for us. We cannot be silent, and we cannot fail to contend for marriage as the union of a man and a woman.”
Love has not won. Moral relativism, on the other hand, now rules. We are witnessing a modern day retelling of Judges 21:25, “In those days there was no king in Israel; every man did what was right in his own eyes.” The words of the prophet Isaiah, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil,” (5:20) are being drowned out. Instead of a big step in our march toward equality, America has taken a big step in her march toward Divine judgment.
You are welcome to leave comments and you don't have to necessarily agree with me. However, I expect a civil tone and charitable spirit. We can disagree with one another without being disagreeable. "Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt." (Colossians 4:6)
