|The current crop of Supremes. Not very representative of our Nation as a whole.|
I am confident (not so subtle sarcasm) that many have been waiting (with bated breath) for my reactions to the most recent Supreme Court decisions. Not wanting to offend or disappoint, but expressing my own personal thoughts, here are some things I would offer for your perusal. I will probably share more later.
|Cain's problem wasn't just killing his brother. He also changed his|
listening habits and followed the wrong counsel.
For, from the days of Cain, there was a secret combination, and their works were in the dark, and they knew every man his brother. Wherefore the Lord cursed Lamech, and his house, and all them that had covenanted with Satan; for the kept not the commandments of God, and it displeased God, and he ministered not unto them, and their works were abominations, and began to spread among all the sons of men. And it was among the sons of men. (Moses5:51-52)
|When God speaks, many put up this little message. |
That's fine, but there are always consequences.
But it is they who do not fear me, neither keep my commandments but build up churches unto themselves to get gain, yea, and all those that do wickedly and build up the kingdom of the devil – yea, verily, verily, I say unto you, that it is they that I will disturb, and cause to tremble and shake to the center. (D&C10:56)
For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father. (Mosiah 3:19)
|Not a cat lover but the message is exactly|
right for Paul's words.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
When a small group of individuals (5-6) make decisions for the general population, trying to please a tiny percentage of the citizenry, the results are bound to have negative implications for the whole. Whether it is healthcare, marriage relations, or any other number of issues, relying on the wisdom of men most often ends badly.
Take a look at history and see how civilizations that cater to the whims of a small minority end up.
It is not a pretty sight.
Let’s hope for some sensibility in the near future.
