by Pastor Matt Trewhella (*the “s” in supreme Court is small in the Constitution itself.)
On Monday, June 15th, the supreme Court yet again wrote “law” from their bench to impose immorality and injustice upon America. They sided with base men who want their sexual perversion protected by government and imposed on every person and every institution in America.
President Donald Trump responded to the courts issued opinion by stating in part: “They’ve ruled, and we live with the decision. That’s what it’s all about. We live with the decision of the Supreme Court.”
Trump is parroting what every government official says in America. And he – and they – are wrong.
America’s founders never said such a thing. America’s founders never would say such a thing. As legal historian Alpheus Thomas Mason wrote not too long ago: “Implicit in the system of government the Framers designed is the basic premise that unchecked power in any hands whatsoever is intolerable.”
Any human institution that is not accountable to other human institutions will corrupt itself. History has proven this.
America’s government officials have granted limitless, unaccountable authority to the supreme Court. They have aided and abetted their evil by their unlawful obedience to their immoral and unjust decrees.
Many government officials love it so because then they can hide behind the skirt of the Court and tell their constituents that they oppose the evil, but “They’ve ruled, and we live with the decision. That’s what it’s all about. We live with the decision of the Supreme Court.” Or similar slogan.
All while the Court destroys America generation by generation.
America’s founders established this nation as a true federalism. In a true federalism there are multiple levels of government and multiple branches on each level. They did this because they held to a Christian view of man – that he is wicked and in need of a Savior.
They did not want power to rest in one man or a small group of men.
The founders established a federalism so the various branches would check the others if they acted wrongly.
The intent, therefore, of federalism is: if any one branch begins to play the tyrant, it is the duty of the other branches to interpose and resist that branch – and stop the evil. (The duty of the people is to rally with the interposing magistrates).
All public authorities (magistrates) possess lawful authority. If federal authorities do wrong, it is the duty of state, county, and local authorities to step in and stop the evil. If state authorities do wrong, it is the duty of county and local officials to step in and stop the evil.
State, county, and local magistrates take an oath to uphold both their State Constitution and the U.S. Constitution. They do not take an oath of subservience to the federal government, nor do they take an oath to blindly obey the authority above them.
Rather, they take an oath to uphold the constitutions. If therefore, another authority makes law, policy, or court opinion repugnant to the state or federal constitutions – they should not obey them.
God has established four realms of government to which He delegates authority. They are: (1) self-government; (2) family government; (3) church government; and (4) civil government. Each has its own role, function, and limits.
The authority an individual possesses in any one of these four realms of government is delegated authority. In other words, they derive their authority from God. Their authority is not autonomous or unconditional. Their authority is God-given, and thus, they have a duty to govern in accordance with His rule.
When someone in authority makes laws or decrees contrary to God’s law, they are in rebellion to God’s rule. Those under their authority are NOT to obey them when they do this. They may even have to actively resist them.
The Supreme Court is not above divine law. They are not above God. They are not the voice of God. They are not God. Their opinions and interpretations are not the supreme law of the land.
