Supreme Court Overrules 50 Million Americans - Legalizes Same Sex Marriage PDF Print E-mail

I'm sure you're as bothered by today's Supreme Court ruling as I am. While everyone was busy arguing over a 19th Century flag, the Supreme Court just legalized same sex marriage. It's a terribly sad day for our country but really, is anyone surprised? Ever heard of Dred Scott v Sandford? Roe v Wade? We deceive ourselves if we expect the "powers that be" to honor God. It's a tremendous blessing when it happens, but using history as our guide we should not expect that to be the norm.

 

Nope. Not surprised. Not surprised at all.

"Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you." Matthew 5:11-12

 

I am praying for a devastated congregation and community in South Carolina this morning. I'm sure you've seen that news that a man entered and opened fire during a prayer meeting last night at an AME Church in Charleston. It's hard to fathom someone wanting to act in such cowardice and attack unarmed folks in their most vulnerable state - praying to God in a place of refuge from the world.

The Apostle Paul, in 2 Thessalonians 2 mentions a mystery figure whose appearance is one of the signs to be given prior to Christ's second coming, the Man of Sin. Prior to discussing a few possibilities as to his identity, let's first consider what scripture says about him from 2 Thessalonians 2.

Let Your Communication Be Yea And "Neigh" PDF Print E-mail

Everyone has a hobby horse. I have a hobby horse. You have a hobby horse. We've all got one. What is a hobby horse, you might ask? Wikipedia explains:

From the term "hobby horse" came the expression "to ride one's hobby-horse", meaning "to follow a favorite pastime", and in turn, the modern sense of the term hobby.

A hobby horse is the following of a favorite pastime. In other words, a favorite subject or pet concept. Unfortunately, in preaching, many times the proverbial nag is negative so as our hobby horse presents itself, it becomes more of a routine rant repetitiously grinding on the souls of our listeners. I have fallen into this pit before and am sure many a minister who reads this has as well. It's just too easy!
