6/26/13 — A Sad Day

June 27, 2013

I didn’t see the announcement of the Supreme Court rulings in favor of same-sex marriage firsthand, but like millions of other viewers I watched the evening news with interest.

June 26, 2013 is one of those days I will remember for the rest of my life. On this day, the Supreme Court of the United States of America struck down a federal law defining marriage as only between a man and a woman.

The lead sentence of the Baptist Press story on the action left out two important words: “for now.”

The sentence stays the ruling stopped short of redefining marriage nationwide. It stopped short “for now.” Anyone who doesn’t think this will be a law in every state in the nation within the next few years continues to have his or her head in the sand.

June 26 was a sad day in the history of our nation. We have been on the slippery slope headed toward Sodom and Gommorah for a long time. We slid more in that direction on June 26.

The good news, however, is God is still on His throne.

As Christians, we don’t need the Supreme Court to define (or redefine) marriage. We still have our Bibles where it is clearly defined in His Word.

May we be beacons of light in a world getting darker each day.

Continue to pray for our country. We need prayer and God’s Hand upon us more than ever before.
