All true Christians must surely be saddened and deeply concerned as we have witnessed, in our day, the marginalization of the institution of marriage in our nation.
The recent decision by the Lords to accept the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill redefining marriage was deeply disturbing. It would seem that our nation is now set to defy God and impose this bill with all its evil implications. Our nation is in a desperate state of moral and spiritual declension, reminiscent of the dark days of the Judges, when ‘everyone did that which was right in his own eyes’ (Judges 21:25).The words of Jeremiah the prophet are so relevant and apt for our nation:
How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain. The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the Lord; and what wisdom is in them? (Jeremiah 9:8,9)
