Truly A Vexing Spirit

On May 15, 2008  the California Supreme Court narrowly ruled that homosexual couples have a constitutional right to marry, striking down laws barring same-sex nuptials and making the most populous state in the union the second after Massachusetts to legalize  homosexual  marriage. Source

In this latest act by the California Supreme Court, we see a rogue spirit from 4 of the 7 justices. This in the face of a 2000 ballot decision where 61 percent of California voters supported a ballot initiative defining marriage as between a man and woman.  

It would appear to me that these Supreme Court justices may want to count their blessings that their livelihood (as a Supreme Court Justice) is not contingent upon the 61% of the voters who were told their opinions are not worthy of consideration, by the ruling on May 15th. 

A greater concern as a nation and more importantly as a Christian, is what we are seeing in terms of a rogue and rebellious spirit that is blatantly directed against God’s word. A spirit that is saying “we don’t care what God says about homosexuality, we are going to do what ever make us feel good”.

It is not hard for one to see the union of the two spirits… that of the the rogue Supreme Court Justice and the unrepentant homosexual.

In the 19th chapter of Genesis we read of God sending two angels to Sodom to retrieve Lot and his family from the pending judgement on a city giving to the most abominable sexual sin.

In the second epistle of  Peter chapter 2, Peter speaks of the impending judgement against those that pervert the Word of God and analogs it with the destruction that befell Sodom and Gomorrah, for an example unto those that after should live ungodly.

The word of God goes on to tell us that Lot was delivered from this judgement but was not completely unscathed. He was tormented with the filthy conversation of the wicked and that seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds.

The pleasures of sin are but for a season. God’s mercy in the face of Jesus Christ endureth forever.
