Mourner, My statement is in reference to the judges oath argument; that they matter. In a pluralistic/relativistic society that has denied a transcendent absolute authority, God Himself, then an oath has no validity. Because Kim swore an oath to God, like the judge did himself, she has fulfilled that oath because God's law trumps a perverted law. The judge is the one disloyal to his oath.
You are spot on Allie. Kim Davis wasn't hired, she was elected. Hence the reason she can order the other clerks to NOT administer licenses from prison. Plus, there are too many who believe she is breaking some law, she is not. SCOTUS did not affirm a law, they subjectively created one via judicial activism or fiat. Further, this judge stated that oaths still mean something, yet, oddly enough, doesn't acknowledge his own sworn oath TO GOD to fulfill the duties of his own office. However, she's a witness to her true oath to Christ and I celebrate it. Praise God in Christ!
Amen Mourner...amen. This judge also sworn an oath, to God, to fulfill his own duties according to justice and truth. What does the oath mean if isn't to the true God? No transcendental base, no foundation for the oath to stand.
Praise God for Kim Davis' witness, even while being sent to jail. She is a witness to God's glory over man's lunacy. I know it's small, but you can go to the Rowan County Clerk's website and send a message...we need to flood that site and flood this nation with truth, which is Christ! Thank you sister Davis.
2012 Democratic convention platform had NO mention of God. They had to take a delegate "yea/nay" vote in which a conspicuous amount delegates voted no. Democrats SUPPORT Planned Parenthood, same-sex marriage, abolition of even a hint of God in the public forum. Do the political/ moral math. Ms. Davis is obviously confused politically but seems sure of her faith.
The two sodomites who are at the center of this are recorded screaming at this clerk. Gay? That's not "happy", it's caustic and pathetic. They are more interested in destroying this woman rather than some quest to fulfill their perverted form of nuptials. We need to stand as this woman has done.
California is a third world territory. Reason left that state many hippie/liberal moons ago. If it weren't for MacArthur and other pockets of Christian faithful, that place would be under water or a wasteland.
Rick, You nailed it with your assessment of "Trumpmania". He is an avatar for those who are indignant toward a dishonest media and hypocritical/politically correct society. The problems arise when we begin to think one person, besides Christ, will somehow fix our woes. The American people, Left or Right, are acting like the Jews in 1 Samuel ( I think) that demanded a king. That, if you look at it, is what people desire. They want THEIR version of a king.
Because the urgent command of God and purpose of the church is to back the political agenda of an antichrist President. This man is a shameful race baiting opportunist who will use his "people" as cobblestone in his road to self-promotion.
The key phrase in this article is "...those who didn't affirm the church's decision STILL REMAINED in the congregation." This is the problem...personal peace and affluence. Some "Christians" are willing to compromise in order to maintain order, peace, and a surface existence. Others do not know the scripture, so they take the "as long as it doesn't involve me, let them do as they wish" attitude. This sobering and exciting if you think about it. Judgment IS happening in the Lord's house.
Dave, Can't assume anything based on opinion; even on this board. Of course Cruz wants votes...he's running for office, but, for some, ANY professed Christian who is running for president cannot be a true Christian and uses a their profession to garner favor.
Who can stay the hand of Grace? May the true God in heaven be praised and glorified for who is in the face and person of Christ. He is ready to save and has done it. I pray strength, wisdom, and joy for these brothers and sisters; hallelujah!
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. Rom. 1:25
I understand the scriptures more because of these insane times we live. It is certainly because it points out man's depravity, but, also, it has NEVER changed and will NEVER change. This stays my own insanity and keeps me zeroed in on his WILL. Lions over people....sound familiar? Rome anyone?
