“The Supreme Court on Friday ruled same-sex partners have a constitutional right to marry, sweeping away state bans on gay unions and extending marriage equality nationwide” (Wall Street Journal, June 26, 2015). The high court’s decision came from a 5-4 vote. Writing the majority opinion, “Justice Kennedy said gay and lesbian couples had a fundamental right to marry” (New York Times, June 26, 2015). “Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., in a dissent joined by Justice Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, said the Constitution had nothing to say on the subject” (ibid.).

In recent years many nations with Bible-based values have discarded those values in favor of changing societal morality. Liberal courts and politicians have spearheaded the move away from biblical morality. This has long been prophesied in the Bible: “in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves… blasphemers… unholy… despisers of good” (2 Timothy 3:1-3). Sadly, it is the “good” that has made many nations “great” in years past. As biblical values disappear, we see “every man doing whatever is right in his own eyes” (Deuteronomy 12:8) which has produced disease, mental and emotional despair, and unhappiness. However, Bible prophecies state that Jesus Christ will return and restore these fundamental biblical values when He establishes His Kingdom of true peace and happiness on this earth.
