On Gay Marriage, the Real Judge Awaits

As a Christian, I do not despair at rulings like today’s Supreme Court decisions regarding gay marriage.  I know who the real Judge is and I know what He says true marriage is.  God issued commands and we will have peace so long as we live by them.

 If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea. (Isaiah 48:18)

Controversial rulings on gay marriage by a U.S. Supreme Court
will someday come under real judicial scrutiny. 

Those in robes have been entrusted with upholding the law.  It’s a huge responsibility for which they will bear the consequences of their actions.  Those who ruled with justice and truth will be upheld for the righteousness they pursued.  Those who ruled by politics and pressure will find their judgments blown away like chaff.  Their robes will be taken away, they will be stripped of everything but shame, and then they will be held accountable for what they have done with the high privilege God gave to them.

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. (Galatians 6:7)

To the gay “married” among the world’s citizens, you will know what you accomplished with all your activism.  You may get every court among men to say you’re married just like one man and one woman, but when the Real Judge issues His ruling on gay marriage, you will know that God does not, did not, and will not ever consider you married.  Picket and protest all you want.

He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a man, that he should change his mind.” (1 Samuel 15:29)

We are told that the last days of earth will be characterized by people doing what was right in their own eyes.  I, for one, am not at all surprised by the Supreme Court.  Had they sought God, they’d know He will never change His ruling.  I won’t fight it.  I won’t be discouraged by it because I know the Real Judge Awaits…
