Last word not yet spoken

Judges make judgments. It is their responsibility to first examine the law, then examine evidence for a case and render a truthful, moral judgment. Christian leaders are deeply saddened by last Friday’s decision from a single judge who ignored the will of voters, and drew a conclusion with no evidence that his verdict was moral or constructive for social order. We have seen other judges reach immoral decisions, as in the Roe v. Wade case. The decision to redefine marrige is another example of grevious judicial activism. 

There is one important thing believers have learned. The last word has not yet been spoken until the Judge of all creation and Lord of all history renders His final verdict. We can be sure that His final word will be consistent with His law. He will not contradict His own standards.

Until that day, we are called to stand strong and be faithful to God’s Word. His truth endures through all generations.

This week we are giving you stories and blogs that bring light to the moral and social concerns of our dark world. Read this story that includes statements from several N.C. Baptist leaders. The situation in the pews and in the streets calls for intensity of prayer. Pray for our leaders. Pray for each other. Pray that Christians will vote to elect strong moral leaders. It appears that the majority of the ones we have elected to serve our nation are not favorable to godly standards.

Don’t miss the N.C. Pastors' Conference and the Annual meeting Nov. 9-11 in Greensboro. Did you download your annual meeting app yet? Get it here.
