There is no need to elongate this second rebuttal to EXMInistries.
Lonnie Poindexter, of Freedom’s Journal Radio Show, corrected me about a recent resignation that took place of a clerk due to her religions faith regarding issuing marriage licenses to homosexuals.
In a nutshell, Brother Lonnie said to me that if the righteous resigns, we leave a vacuum open for evil to assume office. That this is exactly what the devil wants. Righteousness to vacate. This was in response to a post on FB, that I commended the stand on Biblical truth but I never commended the resignation.
Lonnie Poindexter’s point was well noted and received. He is correct to point out that if the righteous walk away, the darkness moves in without a fight.
This is called by my fellow abortion abolitionists (Abolishhumanabortion.com) “Righteous resistance to evil authorities.” Acts 5:29.
In fact, the post, if I remember correctly, included the link to a story about a clerk resigning and EXMInistries concurring with this resignation. That this is what’s supposed to happen.
This is what EXMinistries and others supporting resignations want. For Christians to resign.
Then in using a Scripture that some of us may be familiar with (see Matthew 22:15-22)….“Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s….” we see that Scripture twisting is the norm, even for believers that should know well their Bibles. The issue was about money. “Who’s inscription is this Jesus asked,” Caesar’s inscription was on the coin. The question was about Jews paying tax to Caesar. This ties in succinctly with Romans 13. Romans 13 is the concurring Scripture regarding taxes, not homosexuality.
Nice try, by the way, to twist this Scripture.
But now, what about homosexuality? Is there a law that specifically states that “homosexuality is the law of the land?”
The answer is simple.
There is none.
So Caesar can’t get what Caesar wants because there is no law of the land.
I find it very hard to believe that people can’t grasp this simple statement, but then again, I shouldn’t be surprised because these are the last days and some of us didn’t get the memo.
From a Constitutional perspective, there is no law in the Constitution regarding same sex marriage. The 10th Amendment is clear that any law, according to governor Mike Huckabee and senator Ted Cruz, and other Constitutional scholars/attorneys, that there is no specific law in the Constitution governing marriage and that such laws are to be given by the states. That’s the 10th Amendment.
School Prayer, Abortion, and now, Same Sex Marriage has all been “phantom law” on the misapplied 14th Amendment “Equal Protection” Clause. The original intent of the 14th Amendment was about race.
According to the 10th Amendment, states govern the laws regarding marriage.
Kentucky has no laws on homosexual marriage, and the Constitution has no laws on marriage. Plain and simple.
So the question is very simple.
“What law (of “Caesar”), if any, did Kim Davis break, whether Constitution or Kentucky law that specifically stated that a clerk MUST issue a marriage license to homosexuals?
If a law was created by the U.S. Congress and or Kentucky legislature, please state that law so”Caesar” can be served.
All I am saying is that if there is no law, then Kim Davis was unlawfully imprisoned for a law that doesn’t exist. Secondly, the Supreme Court has no way to enforce the law but leaves that up to the lower circuit or county courts. What we are saying is that there is a clear usurping of the Constitutional process of establishing laws to create a law that doesn’t exist. In other words, Genesis 3:1-7 just happened all over again and we didn’t pay attention.
If Kentucky had a law on the books regarding SSM, then this is a “gotcha” moment, but there is no law.
We can cut to the chase by answering this question mentioned above.
Romans 13 is clear that all authority comes from God.
So you mean to tell me that we are to obey a law from man about the sin of homosexuality? Then that means that God has to raise from the dead all those that commit sexual immorality, including the ones that were destroyed in Sodom and Gomorrah, and apologize to them.
NO need to go any further than this. Answer these questions, citing a law or laws that legalized homosexual marriage, and then we can move on.
Until then, if you want to continue being blinded by the world’s version of the greatest hijacking of law in history, by all means, go ahead.
Just ask me for a pillow when you hit the bottom of the ditch.
