The “Supreme Court” verdict is in: “Gay marriage” is legit.
[insert “U! S! A!” chant here]
Of course, in Reality – as in, the unbreakable reality of a universe defined and held together by God – there is no such thing as “gay marriage”. (See: The Eternal Model for Marriage is Christ the King and His Bride, the Church.)
But here in “the land of the free” and the home of the NSA we are once again imagining – as “we the people” like to do – that we somehow have the ability to transform the lawless into the legal.
While arrival of the long-expected court decision may be a jolt, it should come as no surprise. This is a path that was assured the moment we decided in the name of “freedom” and “liberty” to protect our approach to law and government from explicit subjugation to Christ the King. (See: Note to ‘Merica: There is no “God-given right” to worship false gods. Repent accordingly.)
In this traumatic, revealing and very important moment, I want to keep this post brief and focused in the hope that Christ’s people might be inspired to better understand and therefore better appreciate and more effectively seize the pivotal moment in which we have been purposefully placed by our King.
The point is this: The “Supreme Court” decision that has just been handed down is the inevitable consequence of any approach to law that abandons the Nature of God as revealed in His Word as its explicit foundation in detail. That is the Reality with which we must contend in light of this development. That is the life- and culture-restoring Truth that we must proclaim. (See: Art, math, beauty, logic, law and economics…it’s all about Him.)
Will Americans repent, submit, and embrace Christ as King in practice? Or will we continue to cling to “we the people” and our American State as god in practice?
This is the choice made so very painfully clear by today’s farcical “Supreme Court” decision.
This is the question that we must now pose in conjunction with the Gospel command to repent and believe. (See: Do we love America enough to call her to repentance? Or are we too proud for that?)
This is a time of great opportunity to advance the Kingdom of God in a culture that is plunging into its grave before our eyes.
America as we have known it may come to a quick end. Or it may linger for a while. Either way, our mission remains the same:
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”~ Matthew 28:18-20
Soli Deo gloria…and let’s roll!

What abomination is going to be legal next? The murder of all Christians, child molestation, marriage of your pet? When is this sickness going to stop?
This is tragic—because these are also Bible Days also—"The Last Days"………….probably within 10 yrs. America will be facing..Famine,Nuclear War, at the hands of Germanic Totalitarian Europe(another Roman Empire)–they will meticulous.lighting fast.and merciless…90% will die & 10%(c.30 million)–agonizing,merciless slavery—————-but yhe good news is that America will finally repent…………
Just because man makes a law this doesn't mean that it trumps God's. This law is to ease the conscience of those who actively engage in the sin. There are other means to get your "equal rights".
Now the term of marriage in this world's sense of meaning has become " marriage to the sin" itself and if that eases the conscience for now, all will come to find that there will never be the true peace and rest that the soul truly craves.
So the battle fought is not of flesh and blood, but truly is of principle and powers.
God has ordained and his laws and they are innately written upon each of our hearts.
Rebellion against God and those written laws, which are understood by faith, has been going on since the fall.
However, we may rejoice in the knowledge of the facts left behind by our savior to the apostles. Our home is not here and we should not be conformed.
The church is not to conform to the world, but we are to be transformed.
Let us continue in prayer and give thanks for the Lord will not delay and is due at His appointed time.
Rejoice, remember the good news, he has risen and will come again. Glory to the most high living God who does and will reign forever. His love and mercy is enduring peace.
I noticed, that homosexuals wouldn't had a leg to stand on regarding marriage, if CHRISTIANS didn't fornicate, marry, and divorce all in that order
the fornication tends to make the MARRIAGES, SHAKIER
FROM US NOT BEIN SALT AND LIGHT–with what we watch on TV, etc….
"O Yahweh, … in wrath remember mercy." (Habakkuk 3:2)
Perhaps now Christians will wake up to the fact that we've been had and cease promoting the document responsible for this decision: The biblically seditious Constitution.
Consider the following sampling of reasons the Constitution stands as the genesis for today's horrific decision:
1) Unlike their 17th-century Christian Colonial predecessors, the 18th-century founders failed to expressly establish government and society upon Yahweh's unchanging morality as reflected in His commandments, statutes, and judgments, including those regarding the perversion of homosexuality.
2) Article 3's usurpation of the biblical magistrate appellate system for the Constitution's unbiblical litigant appellate system without which this issue would have never been before the Supreme Court to decide, in the first place.
3) Article 6's Christian test ban by which biblical qualifications were all but eliminated and without which it was inevitable that America would end up with today's Supreme Court Justices who are responsible for today's decision.
For more, see online Chapter 3 "The Preamble: WE THE PEOPLE vs. YAHWEH" of "Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective" at http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/BlvcOnline….
Then Chapter 5 "Article 3: Judicial Usurpation."
Then Chapter 9 "Article 6: The Supreme Law of the Land."

Has to be approved?? So, if it doesn't agree with your opinion it doesn't get posted, right?? Right.
Wrong again, Becki.
"Of course, in Reality – as in, the unbreakable reality of a universe defined and held together by God – there is no such thing as “gay marriage”. (See: The Eternal Model for Marriage is Christ the King and His Bride, the Church.)" SO, what this means, then, is that NO marriage between any human beings is legit if the ONLY marriage is between Christ and the church. So, what's the big deal? If all of us straight people have invalid marriages that aren't worth the paper the license is printed on, then why not let everyone else have an equally invalid marriage? After all, it REALLY isn't any of our business, is it? If we're to live according to the Bible, then it isn't for us to judge. Unless of course you just want to live by the parts that you like and discard the rest?
This is the Biblical reference to legitimate marriage :
Gen 2:23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
This is the scripture that you are taking out of context concerning judgement :
Mat 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
Mat 7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
To put into words that you can understand :
Judge righteously and you will be judged as righteous. Judge un-righteously and you will be judged as un-righteous. Judge mercifully and you will be judged as merciful, etc.
Judgement is not only called for it is demanded of us by the Law of God :
Mat 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
"Judgement is not only called for it is demanded of us"
Hmmmmm….. I think you missed the first 2 words of Matthew 7:1, "Judge Not."
Followed by. "That ye be not judged".
Then 7:2 just reconfirms it. If your going to judge, remember that God will judge you in the same manner.
To put it into words you can understand.
God doesn't call for you to be judgement. He actually commands you not to judge at all. The rest are warnings. There's only one ordering statement there. "Judge Not".
It's a warning about judging those around you. For how you judge them, the Lord will judge you. The last thing those verses demand of you is to be someone to pass judgement. It's the complete opposite of that.
So when you pass judgement on people who just want to express their love. Fire and Brimstone, Eternity in Hell, whatever…. Just remember "what measure ye mete, it shall be measure to you again"
John 8:7 But when they persisted in asking Him, He straightened up, and said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone
In John Chapter 8 the woman was being accused of adultery.
It takes 2 to commit adultery but only one was being judged.
Here you have a prime example of un-righteous judgement. Therefore He made the statement in verse 7 :
"He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her."
"Then 7:2 just reconfirms it. If your going to judge, remember that God will judge you in the same manner." confirms my statement completely.
Which is : Judge righteously and you will be judged as righteous. Judge un-righteously and you will be judged as un-righteous. Judge mercifully and you will be judged as merciful, etc.
Once again another non-Christian trying to tell Christians how to interpret the Scripture.
There is a difference in what the Scripture says and what you would like for it to say.
There is a righteous kind of judgment we are supposed to exercise—with careful discernment (John 7:24). When Jesus told us not to judge (Matthew 7:1), He was telling us not to judge hypocritically. f a believer sees another believer sinning, it is his Christian duty to lovingly and respectfully confront the person with his sin (Matthew 18:15-17). This is not judging, but rather pointing out the truth in hope with the ultimate goal of bringing repentance in the other person (James 5:20) and restoration to the fellowship. We are to speak the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15). We are to proclaim what God's Word says about sin. 2 Timothy 4:2 instructs us, "Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage — with great patience and careful instruction. We are to "judge" sin, but always with the goal of presenting the solution for sin and its consequences—the Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:6).
Bless you. I have said before there is a difference in judging and disagreeing. God is the only judge even though we are not to be mean or ugly, or filled with hatred, we are not suppose to go along with everything people says "feels good, so it's ok". That is not judging. We are all sinners, that is true, but we are not suppose to be practicing sin just because it feels good.
Once again the Arminius/Darby/Scofield "Christians" have proven that there is absolutely no power in their faith in their Baalim impostor.
The "Church" is overdue for repentance and time is rapidly catching up to them.
The "Church" is surely to be surprised when God's Righteous Judgement comes down on them prior to His Judgement on the USA.
Allowing the Epicureans to gain control is undoubtedly the most vulgar display of the impotence of the "Church" with their doctrine of depravity commonly known as free will.
Thank you "Church" for now we all must suffer anguish and hardship for your impotence stemming from your idolatries that have resulted from your inability, nay, unwillingness to keep the First Commandment.
So go ahead and drop another C-note in the offering plate as you pray for a new car, house, TV or what ever your idol of the week may be as you turn the other blind eye to God when you pray to your imaginary "gumball machine" god that gives you the idol of your choice if you just put enough cash into the hands of the false prophet in the pulpit or on TV.
As far as the future of the USA :
