Our Adversaries Are Working Against Us. The People: The House of Representatives Passed the “Respect” for Marriage Act, AKA Christian Persecution!

HNewsWire: The "Respect" for Marriage Act, which has been met with much opposition, has now cleared the House and is on its way to President Biden's desk for signing.

After passing the Senate by a score of 61 to 36 last week, the House finally gave its stamp of approval with a vote of 258 to 169. Currently, the bill is on its way to the White House to be signed into law by Vice President Joe Biden. A total of 39 Republican members of the House of Representatives voted in favor of the measure, despite concerns from their fellow party members that it doesn't go far enough to preserve religious freedom.

By its terms, the legislation mandates that the federal government recognize same-sex weddings that take place in states where they are lawful.

Many who defend the right to practice one's religion freely fear that Christians and Christian-owned businesses may be singled out for legal action by extremist LGBT activists if this bill passes.

Representatives in the House voted today to promote virtue signaling above safeguarding the right to express morally upstanding views on marriage, according to Ryan Bangert of Alliance Defending Freedom. To paraphrase, "This law, which offers no protection or advantages that same-sex couples don't already enjoy, falsely pays lip service to religious liberty while weakening the First Amendment liberties that belong to everyone of us,"

Conservative MPs implored Democrats to protect religious institutions, but their requests were denied.

Since the bill's introduction, "many Americans, faith-based groups, and churches around the nation have voiced concerns about the clear consequences of this policy, but Congress has rejected all efforts to incorporate broad religious liberty safeguards," Bangert said. We appreciate the lawmakers who heeded the voices of their constituents and cast no votes on the deceptive bill. Regrettably, not enough others were willing to join them.

Kelly Shackelford of the First Liberty Institute said that Congress had passed a statute that criminalized religious liberty.

He said that radical campaigners might now go to court to harass religious organizations for holding different views on marriage than the federal government. No citizen of the United States should be persecuted because his or her religious beliefs about marriage differ from the government's favored definition. Also, just because some politicians have altered their views on marriage doesn't mean that every American should.

We're going to discuss the Bible's condemnation of homosexuality and why it's important to take the larger picture into account while reading it today, especially in light of the spiritual atmosphere in the United States.

Christians who insist on adhering to the concept of marriage found in the Bible and the Revised Canon are at odds with others who want to change that definition in order to fit modern social mores.

Are you keeping an eye on this situation? Why? Because the club that finally breaks the church will be adorned with a rainbow. One need only peruse the headlines to see that this is true: the Supreme Court has been deciding almost exclusively on instances involving LGBTQ activists who have targeted for profit corporations.

That's good, because it costs a fortune to pursue trivial matters all the way to the Supreme Court. It is estimated that the absolute lowest cost to win a case in front of the United States Supreme Court is $250,000 USD.

This week, the United States Supreme Court will hear arguments on the issue of same-sex marriage. It will hear arguments about Proposition 8 in California and the Defense of Marriage Act tomorrow and Wednesday.

The Devil's Army In Despite objections from Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), James Lankford (R-OK), and Marco Rubio (R-FL), the Senate passed the so-called "Respect for Marriage Act" (RFMA) on Tuesday night (R-FL).

With a final tally of 61-36, the Senate approved the same-sex marriage bill with the support of the same 12 Republican senators who had previously voted with Democrats on the issue. The summertime tally of GOP supporters: 47

In Isaiah 5:8–30, the prophet pronounces “woes” or judgments on Judah for their wicked behavior. Judah had produced the “bad fruit” of unrighteousness, as illustrated in the song of the vineyard (verses 4–7). Their wickedness even led them to proclaim sinful things as good, which is why Isaiah exclaims, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” (verse 20). Light and darkness are opposites, which adds to the gravity of the men of Judah calling evil “good.”

A major problem in Judah during Isaiah’s time was widespread drunkenness. People would wake up early in the morning to drink alcohol and continue long into the night (Isaiah 5:11). Instead of respecting “the deeds of the Lord,” they reveled in their sin and drunkenness (verses 11–12). They did not see their sin as wickedness; rather, they called their evil “good.”

A world in rebellion against God will have a skewed perspective and embrace a topsy-turvy morality. There are many people today who still call evil “good” and good “evil,” as they promote behaviors that the Bible specifically calls sinful. The celebration of homosexuality and the defense of abortion on demand are usually accompanied by a mockery of those who value life and promote traditional marriage. Evil is being called “good,” and good is slandered as “evil.”

Apart from God, our value system will always become jumbled. We will begin to confuse sweetness and bitterness, light and darkness, and good and evil. We will label biblical morality as “intolerant” and “oppressive.” We will take offense at the truth that Jesus is the only way to salvation (John 14:6). “Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil” (John 3:20).

Calling good “evil” and evil “good” is a sure sign of spiritual wickedness at work: “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2 Corinthians 4:4). Paul warns that the intensity of the spiritual battle will increase: “There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people” (2 Timothy 3:1–5).

Cutting through the confusion over right and wrong and enlightening spiritually darkened minds is the Bible: “I gain understanding from your precepts. . . . Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path” (Psalm 119:104–105). In their fallen condition, humans cannot accurately determine what is right and wrong. Only God can give definitive answers on good and evil. The Bible is “God-breathed,” the only certain source in providing guidance to mankind (2 Timothy 3:16).
