Last week’s 5-4 decision by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to mandate the acceptance of homosexual practice in American society was truly a redefining moment in our nation’s history. What I mean by redefining is that they have redefined both what is to be identified as marriage and what is to be accepted as normal sexual behavior. Even now, if you look up the word perversion in Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary (at least, until they update it with their new definition) you will find that it lists at the very first on its list of definitions “sexual behavior that people think is not normal or natural”. (Of course, it really does not have anything to do with what people think, but that just proves the already politically correct leaning of the Merriam-Webster editors.) The next two definitions are “something that improperly changes something good” and “the process of improperly changing something that is good”.
After millennia of following the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman, the SCOTUS has fulfilled the second and third definitions on Merriam-Webster’s definition list and redefined (that is, they have perverted) the good and correct understanding of marriage for all of America, regardless of whether we all choose to accept their new perverted definition or not. They have done what God warned not to do through His prophet Isaiah: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, And prudent in their own sight! (Isaiah 5:20-21 NKJV).
What will soon follow this perverse redefinition of marriage is an organized persecution of anyone who does not accept or approve of it. If you are a true Bible-believing Christian, you’d better start preparing yourself, because the attacks are coming. You must make up your mind now whether you are going to avoid persecution at any cost by compromising your beliefs to pander to the popular public opinion or whether you will open yourself up to the loss of social reputation, loss of personal property through lawsuits, fines, or vandalism, loss of freedom through incarceration, and perhaps even the loss of health and life through brutal physical attacks. If you think I’m overstating this point, just compare the results of only a few recent court cases against Christians who dared to speak against homosexuality:
- Christian bakers
- Christian photographer
- Christian florist
- Christian wedding chapel business
- Pastors under threat of incarceration
- Many more too numerous to list here!
This is only the beginning. Mark my word: the worst is yet to come.
As for me, I’m joining in with those truly principled Christians who are promising to practice civil disobedience. Are you in or are you out? I wonder: what would Jesus do?
