Baptist Press published an article Dec. 16 that is a further reminder that morality is continuing a downward spiral in our nation.
A federal court judge in Utah invalidated a portion of the state law in Utah which prohibits bigamy. Essentially this means that polygamy is now legal as it is practiced in the state by those who are members of fundamentalist spinoffs of the Mormon religion, according to the BP article.
In essence, it appears anything goes as it relates to marriage.
Just six months ago the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a section of the law defining marriage as only between one man and one woman.
Russell Moore of the SBC Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission said it well in the Baptist Press article:
“Sadly, when marriage is elastic enough to mean anything, in due time it comes to mean nothing.”
As Christians, we can’t get discouraged and crawl into a hole. We must continue to sound the trumpet of what marriage truly is, as defined in God’s Holy Word.
Society may be in the process of redefining marriage, but ultimately, the only definition that matters for eternity is God’s definition of one man and one woman.
Continue to pray for our nation and our leaders.
