Supreme_Court_with_names_0I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages war. 12His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. 13He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. 14The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. 15Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.”a He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. 16On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:

King of kings and Lord of lords.

Today five men and women in black robes passed judgement on the rest of society by insisting that gay marriage is a protected right under the constitution. Although there is absolutely no language in the constitution addressing marriage at all, somehow these five justices found it hidden away within the 14th amendment. Just like the justices who found the woman’s right to abortion hidden among the dusty lines of the constitution this decision, although taunted as the healing remedy for inequity in American society, is only going to further exasperate the animus around this issue. To this day the fight over abortion continues. The fight over gay marriage is going to continue as well.

Why because the will of the people has been trampled on by the will of the black robed mob. Five unelected men and women (or perhaps transitioning or self-identified members of the opposite sex who really knows) have made it their business to decide for the entire civil society what values it should espouse. Although the democratic process was working fine to sort out the problem state by state allowing input from the citizens enabling them to express themselves on this issue, it wasn’t going fast enough for the justices so they put a end to it and decided for us.

Many are celebrating this ‘landmark’ ruling, but just as many, or perhaps even more, are mourning this decision. There are members of our civil society who view this whole concept as ill advised. Their opinions however do not matter because the five judges have spoken, and it is only their opinion matters today.

Christians today are having mixed emotions on how to handle this whole situation. Well I say rejoice and be exceedingly glad because in the end it is the Christian who actually gets the last word on the issue. By that I mean men and women arrayed in black robes are not the ones sitting in judgement at the end of all things but those who are arrayed in white robes will be the ones judging the world as witnesses with Christ.

This issue has been addressed and Paul gave the remedy in his letter to the Corinthian church.

1If any of you has a dispute with another, do you dare to take it before the ungodly for judgment instead of before the Lord’s people? 2Or do you not know that the Lord’s people will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases? 3Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life! 4Therefore, if you have disputes about such matters, do you ask for a ruling from those whose way of life is scorned in the church? 5I say this to shame you. Is it possible that there is nobody among you wise enough to judge a dispute between believers? 6But instead, one brother takes another to court—and this in front of unbelievers!

7The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? 8Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers and sisters. 9Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with mena 10nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6: 1-10

You see my friends, although man thinks he is the master of his own destiny, those who know Christ know who really runs the show.


Highlights from the Court’s dissents.

Four Justices took offense to the majority ruling today on the gay-marriage issue. Here are their comments in brief.

Perhaps we need more reasoned members on the court. Take the time to read all the opinions on the matter and then ask yourself which of these men or woman make the strongest case? Or better put, which of these opinions advances individual  freedom and upholds the constitution and its limits on abuse of individual liberties?

A white Ivy League professor has taken to the pages of the Huffington Post to condemn her own race, declaring that she chose never to reproduce because her children would simply inherit white privilege. Ali Michael, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education, was prompted to air her radical views in reaction to the Rachel Dolezal saga, in …

Oh where to begin. To think she actually is considered educated enough to hold a professorship at University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education. Here is a little science lesson for you Ali. If you were to say marry a non-white male and the two of you would produce offspring, they would not be white, they could be just like President Obama. This way they, like he could rail against white privilege from their non-white side, while at the same time relish in all the richness of white high society. And if anyone criticizes them they can simply cry racism.

 

So you see professor Ali you do not have to forgo having children to keep them from inheriting any white privilege.

Now then if you really are serious about shedding all your white privilege might I suggest you transfer to a less WHITE school to say maybe Lincoln University of Pennsylvania, or Howard University. Better yet why not take all the education you have and teach classes at a Philadelphia inner city High School. This would surely go a long way in support of your claim of feeling guilty for being white. But by all means do remain childless because America can use a few less of your kind.

Now then where do your former students go to get a refund of their tuition money?

Corrupt money management, socialism and Wall Street gambling have us all in a heap of trouble.

The housing market and the student loan bubble are not the only financial bombs set to go off.

 

Pension liabilities swelled drastically over the decades since they were set up, as politicians conceded greater and greater benefits to workers, and passed off the burden on taxpayers.

 

Investing in risky stocks, and now derivatives, these pensions have become a millstone around the necks of dozens of socialized cities and states across the country – with locales like Detroit, New Jersey and California as the worst offenders.

 

Irresponsible funding by local authorities was compounded by pressure from unions for state and municipality workers, and now, according to the Washington Examiner, it is threatening to create a “tidal wave” that is not only creating bankruptcies and threatening to leave pensioners stranded, but could engulf the larger economic picture as well:

Over time, elected officials came to promise workers politically popular new benefits without setting aside the money to pay for them, declared “holidays” from contributions into pension systems and changed their own accounting systems midstream to make the systems seem better funded — all just ways of passing obligations on to future taxpayers. In the process, government pension systems became one of the chief vehicles that state and local politicians used to massage their budgets.

Years of gimmicks and politically motivated benefit increases for government workers have left America’s states and municipalities with pension funds that are short at least $1.5 trillion — and possibly as much as $4 trillion if the investment returns of these funds don’t live up to expectations in coming years.

"Retirement debt has even played a crucial role in high-profile government bankruptcies — including in Detroit; Stockton, California; and Central Falls, Rhode Island. Fixing the problem is proving expensive, and it won’t happen quickly in places with the worst debt.

 

Now we face the consequences. Our elected representatives played a deceptive game of chicken with pension funds. And now the chickens have come home to roost."

Only One Opinion Matters

Sourced through Scoop.it from: freedomoutpost.com

God does not engage in public opinion polls. He is not moved by negative poll ratings. He does not change his position because it proves to be unpopular with the masses. He remains true to his word and his character. So therefore His is the only opinion that matters in the end. Besides if the majority are choosing a certain path chances are they are being led to their own destruction.

Every day, media sources report poll results on moral topics such as same-sex "marriage" and abortion, trying to take America’s pulse on these issues. The primary purpose of these frequent polls is not to gather public sediment on an issue but rather shape the public’s view on that issue. These polls are meant to intimidate people into accepting unpopular positions by making them feel like they are in the minority. These polls are skewed to produce the desired results and as such should be suspect, but far too often the public is fooled into believing the minority position is actually held by the majority.
In the end of it all everyone must stand before the righteous judge of the whole earth and give an account for everything they have done while living in the flesh. All deeds good and bad will be judged by the righteous standard established by God. Therefore it would do us all good to stop and consider God’s opinion when formulating public policy or when forming an opinion on an issue.

You have been warned. You do not have to take my word for it since God has already spoken on the issue. You would do well to not follow the crowd but rather seek the straight and narrow gate that leads to life, the broad road of popular opinion surveys leads to death.
