Recently the California Supreme Court legalize gay marriage. I don't know what shocks me more the fact that they did it, or the fact it went virtually unreported in the media. The Bible tells us that the world get worse and worse as we reach the end times. The Bible believing Christian should understand the times and be prepared for them. First Chronicles 12: 32 says"And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment." Just as the childern of Issachar had an understanding of the times, and how Israel should react to those times Christians in America should understand the times they live in.
I truly believe if our founding fathers knew what kind of nation they had on their hands today they would be very ashamed of us. The homosexual lobby in America does not want equal treatment they want special treatment. It is not enough for them to be left alone, they want to make the rest of us accept their lifestyle. While I'm not hateful of homosexual people, their lifestyle is one I cannot and will not accept. However, I do not put the death of America upon homosexual people I put it on the activist judges who are not content in just interpreting existing law, they must make their own law. This is a strange and cruel perversion of our system of government.
The California Supreme Court has told the people of California that if they do not agree you with the votes they've given they can overturn it when they wish. This week in a 4 to 3 ruling they upheld that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry. The Rev. Susan Russell of all saints Episcopal church was quoted saying, "The justices have ruled in favor of the sanctity of marriage and against bigotry… This is good news for all Californians." It should be noted Miss Russell is herself a lesbian.
Theological liberals everywhere in California are celebrating this " historic" decision. They claimed this is just a new application for the symbolism of marriage. Those of us who believe the Bible however know differently. We see this decision for what it really is the next step along a slippery slope to judgment. Just as Sodom and Gomorrah before her, I believe America is headed towards judgment, and just like Lot of people who can make a difference have been made in affective by sin and compromise. Lots sat in the gates of Sodom a place of respect and leadership he had the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those people but he chose not to. I fear too many Christians are like a Lot and too few are like Abraham.
So what is the answer? Where should we turn to? Who should return to? The answer is found in the Bible, Psalms 121: 1-2 says, "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth." Let us not be dismayed God is still with this, He is still on the throne, and not even California Supreme Court can change that.
