“He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous, both of them alike are an abomination to the Lord.” (Proverbs 17:15)
This verse makes it clear what God thinks about individuals who justify the actions of those who practice wickedness and condemn those who practice righteousness. He considers them both an abomination, an anathema, disgraceful, outrageous, and an atrocity.
What does it mean to justify? It means to declare that someone or someone’s actions are morally right, good and cleared from guilt.
What does it mean to condemn? It means to denounce, revile, chastise, and rebuke and blame.
What is wicked? That which is evil, sinful, immoral, wrongful, iniquitous, corrupt, base, debased, debauched and vile, based upon God’s Law Word.
What is righteous? That which is morally right and virtuous, based upon Biblical standards.
Let’s evaluate the leadership in the Texas House. Consider Speaker Joe Straus, Rep. Byron Cook, Straus’ puppeteer, their lieutenants and their Democrat allies. Do they justify those individuals or elected officials who support killing unborn babies, and promote using state tax dollars to fund Planned Parenthood? Do they support the agenda of the homofascist political movement that wants to use the power of the law to force you, churches, schools, businesses and civil government to accept, affirm, and celebrate those who promote and participate in sodomy and other perverted, sexually deviant activities? Do they support the pro-homofascist school curriculum, Welcoming Schools, which starts in Kindergarten, teaching children that they can decide what gender they want to be? Do they refuse to support American Law for American Courts (ALAC) and oppose Sharia law? Do they condemn and revile those of us who want to protect unborn babies, who hold to Biblical truth, who oppose the promotion of homosexual activity, same sex “mirage” and moral anarchy, and who view the tenets of Islam as being the basis of a political movement intent on destroying Christianity and Constitutional law and liberties in America?
A legislator cannot be neutral. The sin of omission is just as wrong as the sin of commission. A legislator may not publicly support an evil act, but refuses to publicly oppose it. This legislator is just as guilty for not fighting an evil piece of legislation as the legislator who promoted it. Not standing to fight evil, when you have a moral duty to do so, is a sign that you fear men more than you fear God. It signifies moral cowardice.
Whom do Straus, Cook, their lieutenants and the Dems hold in high esteem and praise? Whom do they denounce as bigots, haters, homophobes and Islamaphobes? They deride Christians like you who believe that God’s Word is true and that it must be obeyed, and that God’s laws should be the basis of all laws in America.
God has established His standards in the Bible to instruct us on right and moral behavior, what’s right and what’s wrong. That cannot be changed. Rulers and lost men hate God’s established laws, standards and rules because it constrains their evil desires. They wage war against God and against his Anointed. Read Psalm 2.
“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
And clever in their own sight!
Who justify the wicked,
And take away the rights of the righteous!
Therefore, as a tongue of fire consumes stubble
And dry grass collapses into the flame,
So their root will become like rot and their blossom blow away as dust;
For they have rejected the Law of the Lord of hosts
And despised the Word of the Holy One of Israel.” (Isaiah 5:20-24)
If you serve the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ, then you should proudly, boldly, and courageously stand for Him and advance Biblical Law, truth and principle in the realm of civil government, as well as in all of life.
