Article #74 – “More Immorality”
In the past two articles, we have looked at what has been called the two greatest acts of terror in America by the U. S. Supreme Court. The first was the legalization of abortion, the second is the legalization of same-sex marriage. The first caused the destruction in the womb of more than 58 million babies while the second was the destruction of the family. While this all sounds a lot like politics, it is not. It is part of a spiritual battle; “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Eph. 6:12) We will look to Scripture to see what God has to say about it.
This sin is nothing new as is illustrated in the Biblical account of Sodom and Gomorrah in chapter 19 of Genesis. That may be the first time it is referred to in the Bible but is not the last. At the beginning of creation, with Adam and Eve, God instituted marriage and it was between one man and one woman, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.” (Gen. 2:24) It is clear that God has banned same-sex marriage but, that did not stop the Supreme Court and other courts in the land from trying to redefine morality by legalizing this sin.
We have had an opportunity to hear or read what the Court had to say about the issue following their ruling, now let us look at a few words that God has to say on the subject. “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.” (Lev. 18:22) “If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death.” (Lev. 20:13) Some would say that the Old Testament is no longer valid but, let us hear from the New Testament. “For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper.” (Rom. 1:26-28) God obviously does not agree with the actions taken by five of the Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States.
“No human court has the authority to redefine morality. But this human court has said murder is not murder; and marriage is not marriage; and family is not family. They have usurped the authority that belongs only to God, who is the creator of life, marriage, and family. Any and all attempts to define morality differently than God has is a form of rebellion and blasphemy—blasphemy against God, against His holy nature, and His holy law, and His holy people.” (Quote from, Grace To You) With God’s clear instructions, as illustrated by the above verses, the Christian community should “stand firm” against this ruling by the U. S. Supreme Court. God’s law is higher than any ruling by the SCOTUS. Stand Firm!!!!!
You, too, can have victory in Jesus! More to follow.
