The Brave and Free are obligated to confront injustice


Without question, U. S. Supreme Court’s decision to redefine marriage was unconstitutional and it will result in many more injustices against the nation.

In an resent article, Dr. Mark Creech points out what Thomas Jefferson once wrote, “If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it; he is obligated to do so.”

This is not a time for Christians to let the chips fall and allow this lawless ruling to inflict untold harm on our fellow neighbors. 

“During the Oklahoma State Evangelism Conference in January, the son of the renowned evangelist, Billy Graham, opined:

“Who says we can’t be in politics? The gays and lesbians are in politics. I can tell you that. All the anti-God people are in politics. They’re there. Why shouldn’t the church be there? Who says we can’t speak up? Get involved.”

The transition is going to be difficult because US Christians are used to abundant freedom without costly sacrifices that most people around the world continue to pay for with their lives.

“Civil disobedience is not something Christians in the United States have ever had to use often. We’ve always been abundantly blessed with religious liberty. Nevertheless, for obvious reasons this is changing and we’re about to learn how to humbly, prayerfully, wisely, nonviolently, and dutifully resist unjust law.”

“If we’re not willing to do this, then we’re going to lose everything. If we’re not willing to do this, and Christ delays His second coming, then our children and children’s children will not enjoy the blessings of liberty most of us have taken for granted all of our lives. If we are not willing to do this, we’ll miss an unprecedented opportunity our sacrifices and sufferings will provide for advancing the kingdom of God in ways we never dreamed possible.”
