I Wonder What God Must Think?
By Steve Higginbotham
July 14, 2004
 

We're about to do it again...in a matter of days.  We, as a nation, are going to take a vote on whether or not to accept God's arrangement regarding marriage. 

As our legislatures position themselves to take this vote, I can't help but wonder what God must think as He looks on.  What must He think as He looks on at all the pomp and circumstance that takes place within Capital Hill, as our nation's representatives cast their vote to decide whether to accept His divine institution of marriage as He gave it?  Just think of how this must smack of arrogance as the creation questions and overrules the Creator!

This isn't the first time we, as a nation, have assumed such an arrogant posture and it probably won't be the last.  Like so many other moral issues, no vote really needs to be taken.  The matter has already been settled.  The Law has already been written, its in the Book, and it needs no revision.  We just need to learn to be satisfied with it and respect it.

If God spoke directly to us today as He did in the days of Job, we might hear Him say to those who are questioning his wisdom, "Shall the one who contends with the Almighty correct Him?...Now prepare yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me..." (Job 40:2,7).

What do you think?
