Kim Davis, the County Clerk of Rowan County, Kentucky has been found in contempt of court for refusing to issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples in spite of the illegal “supreme court” ruling that homosexuals MUST be allowed to marry. In the first place, marriage is a covenant with God and no government entity has any right to say who can or cannot marry. In the second place, the “supreme court” legislated from the bench, clearly outside the bounds imposed by our founders in the Constitution, but they don’t care what our founding document says because they are their own gods and think they are superior not only to the Constitution but think they are superior to the God of creation, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Kim Davis is being pilloried for her past, before she accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, being married multiple times and having children out of wedlock. I agree those things are not good but in God’s eyes those things have been washed away by the blood of Jesus and how she lives her life now is what matters to God, including her standing firm on the covenant of marriage. People calling her a hypocrite don’t know, nor do they care to know, the meaning of the word in the context of the redemption of Jesus Christ and the new life in Him.
I too at one time was a terrible sinner, unfaithful to my first wife, and guilty of adultery, which resulted in a divorce. I have since repented, accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, remarried, and have been faithful for 26 years as I will not repeat the actions I committed before asking forgiveness from God and accepting the redemption of the blood of Jesus Christ. Repentance means to turn around, to turn away from sin, and my repentance from the sin of adultery means I will not repeat it. Anyone can turn their life around with the help of the Grace of God, if they truly want to change, and they will be cleansed by the blood of Jesus but cannot continue the same behavior as that would truly be hypocrisy in the eyes of God, and “the eyes of God” is what REALLY matters.
Kim Davis is not a hypocrite unless she is still living her life as before but if she is married, and faithful to her husband and her promise to God, then her previous behavior is irrelevant in the eyes of God and none of our business. The charges of hypocrisy are used out of context very often by people who don’t recognize nor accept the redemption of mankind by the suffering and death of Jesus to atone for our sins. If it can be proven that Davis is violating her covenant with God I will be willing to help castigate her but unless someone has irrefutable proof of her violating the covenant they need to shut up and look at their own life. Something about taking the log out of your own eye before talking about the splinter in the eye of another seems appropriate here. Another thing non-Christians like to spout is, “he who is without sin cast the first stone”. This comes from when Jesus saved the physical life of a prostitute but liberal non believers, and even many Christians, fail to quote the rest of it. Jesus then turned to the woman and told her, “go and sin no more”, meaning for her to stop selling her body. Jesus was very non partisan in this episode, as He was consistently. Both sides were wrong and He addressed both wrongs, as people today are not prone to do. Homosexuality is a severe sin in the eyes of God and he proved it by destroying the twin cities of Sodom and Gomorrah for the sin of homosexuality, as related in the Bible. I believe the acceptance, and especially the promotion of homosexuality, will lead to the destruction of this nation in the near future. There are main stream “Christian” denominations begging for God’s judgment by adopting the mantra of the secular humanists and embracing homosexuality, including celebrating the ordination of homosexuals who flaunt their behavior. Kim Davis is doing what she can to save this nation from destruction because of the immorality of homosexuality and all Christians should stand with her based on her life since her repentance and not stand with the unbelievers against her, and God, based on actions that have been forgiven by Almighty God, the ultimate authority over everything.
I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
