SCOTUS & America’s Rejection of God

SCOTUS

GOD answered Samuel, “Go ahead and do what they’re asking. They are not rejecting you. They’ve rejected me as their King…So let them have their own way. But warn them of what they’re in for.”
I Samuel 8:7-9, Message

My heart is broken with the news of the SCOTUS ruling forcing the people of America to embrace same-sex “marriage.” This is yet another egregious abuse of power where five unelected judges use their office to make public policy and overturn the votes of 50 million American citizens who have already expressed their views that marriage should remain the union of one man and one woman.

But at a deeper level, my heart grieves for God, Himself.

Our forefathers came to this country in pursuit of religious liberty. They wanted the right to worship God freely. And while they represented various Christian denominations, they all embraced the Scriptures as the Word of God. The principles contained in the Bible became the worldview of our nation and the foundation of our public life. The result has been the most stable, prosperous and free nation in the history of the world.

Like the prophet Samuel, I look at the godless reveling now taking place in our streets and I grieve for the Lord Himself. As a nation, we have publically rejected God and embraced perversion. In 1973, we rejected His view of life. Roe v Wade opened the door to the slaughter of 50 million babies. Their blood is still crying out for justice. And today, we officially reject God’s design for marriage. Now our surviving children will grow up without fathers and mothers in “families” that will be whatever we decide they will be. The long term results of rejecting the Lord as the rightful authority over our nation will be devastating.

The next cultural transformation will take place in our understanding of religious liberty. When the government replaces God, and transcendent truth is exchanged for man-made laws, tyranny results. Since homosexuality is clearly and forcefully forbidden by God in the Scriptures, those who believe and honor God’s Word will now become the enemies of liberty. Anti-Christian bigotry will escalate and believers will face intimidation, threats, fines, job loss and prison for attempting to live their faith outside the four walls of their church.

When moral wrongs become civil rights it is the sign of a nation that has lost her soul. We are now running into the darkness. The unraveling of our national stability and prosperity will escalate. The economic pressures will intensify. The Scriptures are clear: Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. (Galatians 6:7, NLT)

We are truly under the judgment of God. Our only hope is that our rebellion would be short lived and our repentance would be authentic and deep. May “God save the United States and this Honorable Court.”

    Unfortunately, we as lovers of Christ knew this was coming although praying that God would prevail in this decision. All I can say is God have mercy on those who made this decision and on those who choose to deny God and practice any sin.

    Unfortunatey, the church will come to accept this over time in the same way it overlooks most of the other ways that the system bases itself on principles of stealing, lying, and murder. The constitution hasn’t mattered for at least the last hundred years. This is just another broken rung on the ladder downward.

    My heart grieves for this country. The words “celebrate” and “pride” now are being twisted our leaders have lost their way under the pressure of hollywood and media elites. Where has courage gone? This scripture you began with is where our country leaders are spiritually. God help us!
