Same-sex, SCOTUS, and the Lord's Day

All people, all the earth, is summoned to come and joyfully serve the LORD with worship and praise.  This is not a request or a suggestion.  It is the command of God.  Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords and there is nothing we can do to change that or His holy law.

Woe to a nation who calls evil good and good evil.  Woe to a nation who defines those things God has named with their own crafty definitions.  Woe to a nation who brazenly defies the law of God.  Woe to this nation which has done so with the strokes of the pens of five fools in black robes, fools who cannot even see what the purpose of a man and a woman are for, rebels who will not acknowledge that the value of all human life only rests in these words – “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them,” as well as these words, “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”

As we gather on behalf of this nation before the Lord on this holy day, this Lord’s Day, we must remember that the problems of this nation, the immorality and rebellion before us, has not come upon the church because of the world – it has come upon the world because of the church.  Same-sex so-called “marriage” is now the law of the land because of the nod it has been given by the major denominations and churches of this nation for decades.  We taught them how to do this.  We showed them how to reinterpret law; we have disparaged the roles of husband and wife, we have ordained women and homosexuals to be the masculine ministers of the church, and we have blessed homosexual unions for years and years.

In addition, the evangelical church in America has been preaching for generations now that Jesus Christ has no Lordship in the public square, that while we are to worship Him, we should do so in our hearts and in our churches, but we have no obligation as a nation, nor even as Christians, to do so in the halls of justice, the halls of legislation, or the halls of schools and universities.  The devil is winning not because he is stronger, but because we keep giving him the battles, one after another after another.

Same-sex mirage exists in our nation as a publicly-acceptable option because we, the church, made it so in our churches when we gave way to egalitarianism decades ago.  Limp, effeminate, impotent Christianity exists in our public halls because we, the church, taught that it should be so from our own culturally relevant, make-me-feel-good pulpits decades ago.  Masculinity and male leadership have become repulsive in the eyes of the world because the church has failed to hold up the offices of husband and father with dignity and accountability.  Repentance for this nation begins here in the church and in our own lives.
