“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34). From the track record of the Supreme Court in past and recent decisions, the court has never read this verse just quoted. Nevertheless, the Holy Scriptures are for them: “These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates” (Zechariah. 8:16). This is what the Lord God of Heaven expects of those who are in authority, those who are to rule over the people in righteousness.
The Bible is very clear that prostitution is a very terrible sin. The practice of prostitution is a direct attack against the honourable institution of marriage, which is the foundation for a good and healthy family. The act of prostitution is an immoral act, and those who participate are committing the sin of adultery. The desire to legalize prostitution is not a mark of liberty and a progressive society, but a sign of reprobation – meaning, God is giving up our society to more sin, as He removes His restraining hand that is upon us. That the Supreme Court and our government – on any level – is considering such a legalization is sure proof that God has allowed fools void of right judgment to rule over us.
“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34). When will “sin is a reproach to any people” come to pass? To whom is the Supreme Court accountable? To whom is our government accountable? What will be next? Legalized incest, pedophilia, and polygamy? Oh, God have mercy on us, and on our children, for the Lord Jesus’ sake! “Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled; but God will judge fornicators and adulterers” (Hebrews 13:4).
