Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. (Galatians 6:7, NKJV)

Let's ponder for a moment what the Supreme Court just did. In creating a new constitutional "right" to enter into counterfeit marriage, the "justices" conferred a magical power not only to live in one's own fantasy world, but to compel others to recognize one's fantasy as reality.

It isn't enough for you to be able to pretend that male anatomy and female anatomy are interchangeable. Not adequate that you and your "life partner" be allowed to practice your depravity unhindered. No, we must force God-fearing people to go along with this hellish charade. Monopoly money is now legal tender. Sodomy is chastity. Play marriage is real marriage – and you must bow the knee to Baal. We, the Court, say so.

The war on reason, on reality, and on God continues.

So now we'll see. We'll see whether the "sin and let sin" libertarians are right, and that God has "evolved," as they say, in His views since that unpleasant incident at Sodom and Gomorrah. It doesn't really seem like that's the case; plenty of civilizations have fallen since then, and the death rattle of many of them was their condoning of homosexual practices.

Have you ever wondered about the wording of Galatians 6:7 (above)? Why not, "God cannot be mocked?" Why, God is not mocked...? True, the NIV and a couple of other translations render this "God cannot be mocked," but that's a loose translation and patently false. God certainly can be mocked; He is mocked all day, every day. And yet He is not mocked. You can mock Him, but He is not mocked. The ridicule and shame always return to your own head, with divine interest. You reap what you sow (the kind of thing you sow) but not the amount you sow – there wouldn't be much point in sowing if you only got out of the dirt what you put in. You may reap thirty, sixty or a hundredfold. God is not mocked.

America is under divine judgment; this should have been clear to us since 9/11/2001, if not before then. Rampant homosexual perversion and public acceptance of it is not only a sin, but a judgment. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. (Ephesians 5:11, 12) The shame, the degradation, the humiliation of sodomy should bring the sinner to see how far he has fallen from his goal of becoming his own god. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. (Romans 1:27) Some have tried to make "the penalty of their error" sickness, especially AIDS. And it may include that. But the penalty mainly spoken of here is the utter shame of the filthy, disgusting act. If the sodomite turns his shame into "pride," he has rejected what is perhaps God's last desperate offer of grace.

And so it is with a country that officially gives God the middle finger. Watch what happens next. If the US enters a new golden age of prosperity and well-being after this, then I'm totally wrong about everything.

We've seen this movie before. This is how it ends.
