Is Belief in God Required to Hold Office in America?










By Jake MacAulay

As you read or watch my column this week I will be at the United States Supreme Court with my Pastor and family to show my support of God-ordained marriage between one man and one woman.

We at Institute on the Constitution also participated in the case currently before the Supreme Court with an Amicus Brief that respectfully warned the court of the certainty of God’s judgment upon a society that would attempt to redefine His holy institution of marriage.

That we need to define marriage to the modern American culture is, itself, a tragic and regrettable circumstance. For most of American history, this would have been unnecessary because the Words of Jesus Christ as recorded in the 19th Chapter of Matthew, were well known and understood:

Have you not read that He Who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?

You might call this the “Since-the Creation-of-Humankind” definition of marriage, or the “Before-the-Foundations-of-the-Earth” definition of marriage or the “Settled-in-Heaven-for-All-Eternity” definition of marriage.

Or you might just call it “THE” definition of marriage.

Now to attempt to change that which is eternal and forever fixed by the Creator is to do nothing less than make the claim that you are God. This is very wrong and very dangerous, and the Supreme Court of these united States is now considering taking this very same dangerous step.

While there are many conclusions that can be drawn as we witness this cultural degradation, one comes most immediately to my mind. When a culture discards the Word of God as the standard for what is right and what is wrong, and relegates these determinations to fallen men, the results are as predictable as they are terrible.

In the time of the founding of America, when a Biblical worldview was predominant in the American people, this connection between following the commandments and peaceable existence was clearly known, easily understood and evidentially experienced in the American culture. Undoubtedly, living prosperously by living righteously is what Jefferson meant when he used the phrase “pursuit of happiness”.

Psalm Two warns that when the judges and the rulers of the earth throw off God’s law and take it upon themselves to make their own rules for right and wrong, they will be dashed to pieces like a rod of iron striking a clay pot.

Regrettably we seem to be setting ourselves up for this very lesson. Unless our government officials start obeying God and stop “playing god”, this is a lesson we will experience fully.
