“Your laws are perfect and completely trustworthy. I am overwhelmed with indignation, for my enemies have disregarded your words.” (Psalms 119:138-139 NLT)
This past week saw Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis thrown in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. Disturbing as that whole scenario is (being jailed for your Christian beliefs), even more appalling was the statement issued by U.S. District Judge David Bunning, noted in the Friday edition of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazzette: “The idea of natural law (God’s law) superseding this court’s authority would be a dangerous precedent indeed.”
Sadly, this is what we are reduced to. Ignoring the fact that ALL of America’s legal foundations and rules of law were based upon God’s own laws as expressed through the Bible, we now see the heart of America’s dilemma, which is that Man and his varied opinions are now viewed as above the Creator’s. Fascinating…
The indignation of King David should be the indignation within our own hearts too. Sadly, I’m afraid it won’t be. Remember, that as Christians, we are held to a higher standard of accountability to a God that is watching. Then, come November, remember who stands against God’s laws as you enter the polling stations. May God have mercy on us today.
