WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah patted himself on the back in a column yesterday for deciding to “risk prosecution for ‘hate thoughts’ by raising what the Bible says about homosexuality,” which he said will lead to God’s judgment.
“Judgment isn’t just coming. It is here,” Farah said. “This is it. It could get worse, but the Supreme Court ruling on marriage was, in fact, itself a form of divine judgment on America.”
Farah, who predicted that millions of people will flee America as a result of the gay marriage ruling, said that Americans are “getting their just deserts [sic], as are the rest of us who have not been the salt and light needed to hold back judgment.”
“Progress on this journey often comes in small increments, sometimes two steps forward, one step back, propelled by the persistent effort of dedicated citizens,” Obama said. “And then sometimes there are days like this, when that slow, steady effort is rewarded with justice that arrives like a thunderbolt.”
I found that last line to be revealing.
In the Bible, justice indeed can come swiftly as an act of God. But the only time the word “thunderbolt” is used in Scripture, in Psalm 78:48, is to describe judgment on the land of Egypt during the Exodus.
That’s what I believe hit America like a thunderbolt Friday – not justice, but judgment.
God is giving America over to her lusts and pride because, like ancient Israel, she has turned away her heart from Him, though He was like a faithful husband to them both.
America is, indeed, getting justice, but not the way Obama and the moral anarchists think of it. They are getting their just deserts [sic], as are the rest of us who have not been the salt and light needed to hold back judgment.
Judgment isn’t just coming. It is here. This is it. It could get worse, but the Supreme Court ruling on marriage was, in fact, itself a form of divine judgment on America.
Let me risk prosecution for “hate thoughts” by raising what the Bible says about homosexuality, the behavior that opened this spiritual Pandora’s box. …
There were no thunderbolts last week. But, rest assured, they are coming.
