God Rules – Like it or Not

After Moses reminded Israel of several facts, before their entry into Caanan, he said; “Know therefore this day, and lay it to thy heart, that Jehovah he is God in heaven above and upon the earth beneath; there is none else. 40And thou shalt keep his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days in the land, which Jehovah thy God giveth thee, for ever”. (Deuteronomy 4:39,40)

It is evident that man has forgotten who is charge, and who rules among men. Who is man to change God’s laws? It seems that our government, religious institutions, individuals seem to make decisions based on what they think is good, not what God says is right. If you think that way it is time to remember “who makes the rules.

Judicial Benchmarks: Hate Crimes Law Challenged

The Michigan-based Thomas More Law Center is challenging the constitutionality of the federal Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009, which was attached to defense authorization legislation last fall. The bill adds gender disorientation or identity to the list of protected minorities, which in turn means stiffer penalties for crimes committed against these “special” classes of victims. The plaintiffs are three pastors and the president of the American Family Association of Michigan, who “take a strong public stand against the homosexual agenda, which seeks to normalize disordered sexual behavior that is contrary to Biblical teaching,” the Law Center said in a news release.

According to CNS News, “The lawsuit alleges that the new law violates the plaintiffs’ rights to freedom of speech, expressive association, and free exercise of religion protected by the First Amendment, and it violates the equal protection guarantee of the Fifth Amendment. The lawsuit also alleges that Congress lacked authority to enact the legislation under the Tenth Amendment and the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution.”

The Patriot Post records the above information. Looking throught the news reports and speeches from the President it is evident that most in our government support homosexuality as an acceptable lifestyle along with all benefits of a legal marriage. They do not want to hear what the scriptures say on the subject, or disregard it completely. Is it accurate to disregard God when deciding our nations laws? Our founding Fathers didn’t think so or they would have written the Constitution, Bill of Rights, etc. to so reflect. It’s time to tell our leaders to let the scriptures guide their decisions.
