The Possibility of a Great Evil Being Overturned
May 3, 2022
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.” Romans 1:18-19
Last night before I turned in for the night, I checked social media and saw the report from Politico that the Supreme Court of the United States is set to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion. Now, it is important to understand that this is not the final decision of the court. The court hears a case and then the justices spend months talking about and debating the case amongst themselves and it is my understanding that they often take several votes during this time and those votes do at times change. Yesterday the majority opinion, written by Justice Alito, was leaked to Politico. This is unheard of and this morning I heard an interview with a former Supreme Court clerk who said they don’t believe this has ever happened. The deliberations of the court are to be private and uninfluenced by anything or anyone outside of the court. So, what needs to be understood is that this is an attempt by the left to influence the court to change it’s decision.
While all of that is important, and the fact that this was leaked, most likely by either one of the liberal justices, or more likely one of their clerks, demonstrates that those who worship at the idol of baby killing will stop at nothing to make sure it continues unabated. What is more important I believe is what we are about to witness in this country. I pray I am wrong. I believe we are about to witness an unprecedented amount of “unrighteousness” on the part of those who support the killing of babies. The “right” to kill your child in the womb has become such a foundation of the left in this country that the reaction to this being thrown back to the states will be violent.
As Biblical Christians let’s remember that abortion is the product of a culture that suppresses “the truth in unrighteousness.” We love our sin and the killing of babies is the product of the desire for what Al Mohler so rightly calls “erotic liberty.” The desire of sexual activity without consequences is ultimately what baby killing is about. So what can we as Biblical-Christians do? Let me encourage us to do two things: 1) continue to stand on the authority and sufficiency of Scripture and 2) pray for these justices, their staff, and their families as an onslaught of evil is about to descend upon them. May God strengthen them and may He strengthen our witness in an increasingly evil culture.
