People have been asking me for what my response is to the Supreme Court Ruling. So my response is the same as my pastor Dr. Ed Young’s response which I have posted below.
A Biblical Response from Dr. Ed Young
The Supreme Court has acted lawlessly this past week and superseded its powers granted by the Constitution. This is the worst example of judicial activism. When five or six unelected justices can legislate from the bench, the very fabric of the Constitution has been shredded. The republic on which we stand is in great jeopardy. The Second Baptist Church family will continue to recognize the biblical definition of marriage as between one man and one woman as described in Genesis 2:22-24:
The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. (NASB)
We believe the covenant relationship of marriage is defined by God alone. We stand on God’s Word rather than the whims of our humanistic society.
