Hebrews 13:8 “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever.”
The 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act passed with overwhelming majorities. The House Bill passed without a single objection, and was sponsored by Democrat Chuck Schumer and Republican Chris Cox. The Senate Bill passed by a vote of 97-3, and was sponsored by Democrat Ted Kennedy and Republican Orrin Hatch. Yes, the bill was not just supported but sponsored by Representative Schumer from Brooklyn, New York and Senator Kennedy from Massachusetts. Of the bipartisan nature of this effort, President Clinton commented:
“I’m told that, as many of the people in the coalition worked together across ideological and religious lines, some new friendships were formed and some new trust was established, which shows, I suppose, that the power of God is such that even in the legislative process miracles can happen.”
Society has changed drastically in the past two decades, but God has not. As representatives of Christ, neither should we. Christ is the same yesterday, today and for ever. While society shifts all around us, we must remain firmly affixed on the foundation of an unchanging God. PLEASE PRAY FOR RESOLVE TO BE UNCHANGING IN DOCTRINE AND VALUES REGARDLESS OF SOCIETAL PRESSURES. God remains the same throughout time, so should we.
