Churches around the country are celebrating the ruling of the Supreme Court to accept gay marriage. The Word of God obviously is no longer followed in our churches. Why the government is part of the holy union between one man, one woman and God should be the question foremost on our minds today. But the answer is obvious: they want complete control. And it is obvious that our churches are more concerned with image and power than God.
This reminds me of the following:
But the Protestant Church would soon prove to be a stumbling block to Hitler’s plans to “nazify” German society, including its churches. The reason was a reaction to the emergence of the Deutsche Christen (German Christian) church, a nationalistic Protestant group that identified with Nazi ideology and hoped to create a national Reich Church that would embody Nazi ideals. The German Christians won the national church elections in July 1933 and quickly tried to enforce their agenda, which included the adoption of “Aryan laws” within the church (permitting only racially pure Germans to hold church positions) and the eradication of all Jewish influences from Christian scriptures, liturgies and hymns.
How soon we forget that our churches can be manipulated by the government and courts to suit their own agendas. As for the Grace of God on America, it is no more. We can only look inside ourselves for grace based on our faith and Sacred honor.
The National Cathedral is pealing its church bells, along with some other Washington churches, to celebrate the Supreme Court’s decisions on gay marriage.
Cathedral spokesman Richard Weinberg said the bells rang at noon Wednesday for 45 minutes to an hour. Bells also rang at other Episcopal, Methodist, Presbyterian, Unitarian and other Christian churches.
