The Supreme Court has ruled on gay marriage in the U.S. Does this mean it’s all over? That the debate is settled?
Yes and no.
Yes, it’s settled. No, it’s not because the Supreme Court has ruled on the matter, and it’s not settled in the way the court ruled.
Court rulings are often overturned. This one should be. The justices have created for themselves the right to create rights. The circularity there should be obvious. It’s an invention out of vapor, an action based upon nothing. In another sense, it’s a base sort of action.
The judgment that counts is this one: “Forever, O Lord, your word is settled in heaven” (Psalm 119:89, NKJV).
Forever. God’s word. Settled.
The debate among humans will continue. It’s settled in heaven, but there’s work to do here.
Christians, get informed. Look upward. Study the books of Hebrews and 1 Peter, for their teachings on standing firm in tough circumstances. Study Jeremiah. Stay the course. Fight the good fight. God is good.
