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
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?
