With God, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. Luke 1:37
We cannot understate how vital and important the Supreme Court ruling and victory today for Hobby Lobby and the Alliance Defending Freedom was for the Body of Christ and Christians everywhere. This was a MONUMENTAL victory for the Body of Christ. Not only does this limit the Federal Government’s Authority to mandate rules that interfere with the religious freedoms of Christian business owners, this ruling opened the door to victory against Christianity’s greatest legal threat: Gender Laws.
You see, in the last five years Gender Laws have increasingly become the greatest legal threat to both the Church as well as to Christian business owners. Gender Laws are considered the greatest legal threat because they attack the very core of what make us Christian! In Luke 10:27, Jesus stated, “He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
If we are to Love the Lord with all of our heart, soul and strength, then we must love his sacred institution of Marriage being between a man and a woman. We Righteous understand that the purpose of marriage was to produce Godly offspring (Malachi 2:13-15). Therefor, even at a practicable business level, our religious freedom’s MUST be protected in a similar fashion.
Therefor, we need to make the EXACT SAME legal argument that Hobby Lobby made regarding these unconstitutional State and Federal Laws that prohibit Christian business owners and Churches from objecting to use their company or services to promote or facilitate anything that furthers an agenda that is contrary to the Lord’s Righteousness. We should never be forced to violate our constitutionally protected right to religious freedom of expression.
THIS VICTORIOUS RULING COULD NOT HAVE COME AT A BETTER TIME
With the United Methodist Church already falling victim to Gender Laws (they had a Lesbian couple that demanded to be married within a Church of theirs in New Jersey. The Church refused, was sued in court under the jurisdiction of New Jerseys Gender Law and the Church LOST in court) to a millionaire Gay couple from England suing to force the Church to perform a Gay wedding, it has not been the Churches finest legal hour.
With today’s ruling, Christians everywhere will have a chance to actually fight back against these satanic and highly restrictive laws by claiming that they violate their constitutionally protected religious freedoms. Just like Hobby Lobby did…and won.
Praise the Lord for victory!
