June 2015 will be remembered as the month America finally slammed the door on God and opened the door to judgment. We also saw the final vestiges of constitutional government discarded. Three decisions by the Supreme Court poked fingers in God’s eye, going directly against His Word. But those pointing this out are dismissed as fear-laden Neanderthals who don’t belong in the modern world.
The Court first declared that Jerusalem is not part of Israel. There’s probably no city in the world associated for a longer time with any people than Jerusalem is with the Jews. After the reestablishment of a Jewish state, Congress recognized it as Israel’s capital through the Jerusalem Embassy Act; yet the Executive branch took a contrary position and refused to implement the law. It’s the first time in history the Court ruled against Congress on a foreign policy matter; and it did so for political, not legal reasons.
Next, they overturned North Carolina’s abortion statute, requiring ultrasounds. This regulation wasn’t burdensome, but caused some women to change their minds. In the last decade, ultrasound has saved over 200,000 children. Given the millions of abortions, this shouldn’t have been a threat to abortion advocates. Yet anything that impinges on the right to destroy the unwanted results of sexuality is taboo in this culture and to this Court. Their reasoning again was political; the law had “ideological” intent and violated doctors’ “free speech.”

Finally, despite clear constitutional language that any issue not specifically addressed was reserved to the states, the Court overturned the age-old, God-given definition of marriage, replacing it with a human standard tethered to nothing, opening the door for anything else men deem acceptable in a culture in moral freefall.
Arrogance has replaced humility; politics has replaced law, not only in our leaders but in the population as a whole. They’re not demonstrating enlightenment; they’re merely wallowing in sin and rebellion. Maybe critics are right when they say that Bible believers don’t belong in this modern world. We’d prefer a world where respect for God brings wisdom, humility, modesty, charity, and respect for life. That’s what made America prosperous and created a society people eagerly entered.
