ONE MAN & ONE WOMAN (Before God): Our Biblical belief in one man and one woman before God is as old as the populated earth itself, and is the foundation and perpetuation of humanity.
I want to encourage Bible believers everywhere to hold fast to your profession of faith and to your Biblical beliefs. Do not be discouraged by the ruling of the Supreme Court. We have a plethora of Biblical/Spiritual reasons to do so; however, here is one secular reason why you should not be discouraged.
There are too many daunting psychological presuppositions in the opinion by Justice Kennedy, who hails from an Irish Catholic upbringing, to discuss here. So I have selected one that I thought important to us Bible believers.
Though it is a very arrogant and condescending opinion, Kennedy and THE JUDGES who ruled in favor of same-sex marriage ALSO AGREED on the following:
“Finally, it must be emphasized that religions, and those
who adhere to religious doctrines, may continue to advocate
with utmost, sincere conviction that, by divine precepts,
same-sex marriage should not be condoned. The
First Amendment ensures that religious organizations and
persons are given proper protection as they seek to teach
the principles that are so fulfilling and so central to their
lives and faiths, and to their own deep aspirations to
continue the family structure they have long revered.”
page 27, 2nd paragraph
I find this statement arrogant and condescending because of the phrase “may continue to advocate”. A panel of human judges presuming to “allow” us to “continue to advocate” our Biblical beliefs is insulting to our faith. It echoes the sentiment of, say, a Nebuchadnezzar or a Pilate or even a Herod.
It is unfortunate but God is merciful and forgiving. Let us pray for true salvation for all 9 judges and for God to grant them intimate knowledge of Himself and wisdom to judge.

For those who didn’t know, let me repeat it. ONE MAN & ONE WOMAN (Before God): Our Biblical belief in one man and one woman before God is as old as the populated earth itself, and is the foundation and perpetuation of humanity. Blessings!
