Note: We are still in the early stages of what we are witnessing. Throughout time, most all of both Christendom, and true Christianity, would side with this man and the government knows it. The battle is for our minds; the goal is for them to either bend us or break us. They want us to either affirm them, conform to them, and even esteem them, or else they want us to bow down before them… in defeat. There is no middle ground with the radicals and their ranks are growing rapidly, especially in places of power.
The Bible declares “…whatsoever [is] not of faith is sin” and yet they actively want this man to sin against God and conscience. They want him to do what God declares we must not do… We read in Isaiah 5:20 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” In obedience to this verse, and others like this, the baker now faces persecution. This is to be expected however; and it will only get worse… much worse. And yet, the true Christian ought to both pray about it and count it an honour. God in Christ has already given us the victory, and their kingdom will not stand. They may appear to win battles, even many battles, but they have already lost the spiritual war.
Remember, we have God’s word to affirm us and we also have a Constitutional right to the freedom of religion (one that trumps any supposed right to cross-dress, to surgically alter oneself without a direct medical (in the non-psychological sense of the term) cause, etc). They know this but law is not what they value; the Constitution is not what they value; objectivity, honesty, and reason is not what they value; what matters to them is their subjective reality, their feelings and emotions, their godless world view, and ultimately, their own lusts and desires. They have no love for the True and Living God, only enmity, rebellion, and disdain. But let us not despair; let us fight the good fight. I do not know this baker’s religious beliefs; however we ought to pray for him, for others like him, and for this nation as a whole — that the Gospel may go forth, and that the truth of God’s word as a whole will flow forth boldly. Though our weapons are not carnal let us go on boldly as Christian soldiers nonetheless.
2 Corinthians 10:3-6 “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4 (For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.”
Ephesians 6:10-13 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
