If you believe the Bible foretells what is to come, as I do, the Supreme Court's decision this week to advance the rights of same-sex couples to marry is part of the prophecies told by Jesus and His apostle Paul.
Consider Romans 1 especially "And God gave them over." Read 2 Timothy 3 about what it will be like in the end times and how much of this, said Jesus, is just the beginning. We haven't yet gotten to the part about believers being arrested and executed all because of His name. All of that -- and more -- are still to come.
We can see where it is headed. The Supreme Court is ruling on same-sex marriage and other things God calls "abominations," but the Supreme Judge has the last word. Today's headlines can be read next to Bible prophecy. More and more the scriptures speak to current events. The problem is the Supreme Court isn't listening. That's because growing numbers among us aren't listening. And then God gives them over.
I'm Cal Thomas.
