The Supreme Court ruling is great news for the First Amendment– and all people! God bless the First Amendment! Be mindful of how important it is. The first amendment is what keeps us a free nation. When the government starts stepping in and telling religious people what to believe or when religious people step in and tell everyone else what to believe by government fiat that’s a problem. We have to stop the mantra that our neighbors are our enemies. We have to agree to disagree and not let the news media pit us against each other.
Interestingly there is no outrage by media over Apple China censoring 27 LGBTQ+ apps while the NBA, the MLB, and Apple itself have no problem partnering with China. Why the contradiction? They worship the almighty dollar– it has nothing to do with respect for the LGBTQ people.
In other news, the new Barna Marriage Study found that practicing Christians are more satisfied in their marriages by far than any other group (including non-practicing Christians). Without the Church, we are a mess. Maybe the reason anxiety, suicide, and depression are on the rise is because we have abdicated the glorious opportunity for gladness to come into the House of the Lord. Something wonderful happens in your life and marriage when you attend church together. You are reminded that God is in charge not you and that He designed you with different but complementary assignments: sacrifice for the man and respect for the women.
There is more bad news: masks are not theater. Yet, when a group of parents sent their kid’s face masks to a lab for analysis, they found they contained an alarming 11 types of harmful and potentially deadly pathogens. The COVID period has proven that we don’t really follow the science, we follow feelings and whoever speaks the loudest. This rejection of real is science is also reflected in the transgender Olympic athletic movement which is undermining the equality of women in the name of social justice. This is not progress; it is an agenda and it is anti-woman.
However, let us never fall into desperation in the face of evil. God has been using evil for His good purposes for a very long time. He is always going to establish His Kingdom. This brings us to the life of David and his son Absalom.
