Thoughts on SCOTUS Ruling

What can I say that hasn’t already been said by leaders in the Church?
Last week was a sad week. Politically, states lost a little more of their rights, morally and culturally a long standing definition was changed, and biblically, judges that legislated from the bench violated God’s law.
My post is actually not about any of that though, it’s about what we do now and where we go from here.

What do we do? We preach the gospel and love people.
Where do we go? To the hurting.

I do not agree with the SCOTUS decision, constitutionally, I believe, it should have been left up to the states.
Now, it’s time for us to show the love of Jesus and clearly present the message of the gospel.
have I had all the doom and gloom thoughts? Yes.
Do I think we need a religious protection amendment added to the constitution? Yes.
I didn’t write last week because I didn’t want to write out of emotionalism.
Really the only thing that can be said now is don’t back off the truth and keep presenting the love of God through the gospel.

This really is the bottom line, let’s not get distracted.
