Kim Davis, faith, and Christianity

Written By | Sep 9, 2015

WASHINGTON, September 8, 2015 – Kim Davis, a devout Christian, was jailed for taking actions reflecting her belief that homosexuality is immortal.

Christian churches have been under considerable pressure to change teachings on homosexuality to conform to the modern “standards” that are being forced on society. Christian children in public schools are being indoctrinated into believing that homosexuality is a “right” because the Supreme Court said so.

Mrs. Davis is an employee of the State, and as such is required to fulfill the duties of her office as required by law. She is paid well, and as with any employee, is required to follow the rules as pertains to her job.

That said, there are troubling issues here. Christians are being sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. Following the word of God is the responsibility of every Christian. The damage is done when the word of a tyrannical government is considered higher than the word of God.

There is no statement anywhere in the Constitution that requires gay marriage be allowed. It is only the power of the Supreme Court and five progressive judges who sit there that has given this so called right to homosexuals.

On the contrary, the Constitution makes quite clear that the states have the right to make laws on subjects not specifically granted to the federal government.

The Supreme Court’s ruling on gay marriage is a case of the Judiciary making rather than examining and enforcing laws. Yet county attorney Watkins said  he “will not and can not support her” in her refusal “to obey the Constitution.”

Kim Davis is a Christian, of that there in no doubt. She is willingly putting her Christian faith above all else in an act of civil disobedience that puts all she holds dear at risk.

Rather than holding a respectful discussion about ways to solve this problem, the gay mafia descended. Davis has been the subject of threats since she took her stand, with unknown assailants threatening to burn down her house and commit bodily harm against her.

Anyone who refuses to accede to the progressive doctrine is castigated like Mrs. Davis. The attacks are sure and strong, with personal and physical attacks. The move against Mrs. Davis was fast and furious, with the Internet trumpeting that she has been married four times and divorced three, as if that negated her stand.

News reports do not focus on the fact that Mrs. Davis found Christ at the age of 44, about four years ago. As all Christians can, she has repented her sins and pledged to live her life for the Lord. She is an Apostolic Christian, whose followers are strict adherents to the teaching of the Bible as the infallible word of the Lord.

Mrs. Davis’ faith is being attacked from many sides right now, by the media, by progressives and other non believers who fight so hard to tell you that you are wrong about something that they claim doesn’t exist. But her faith will hold, and as Christ said in the Bible, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone’.
