Which law is greater: God’s or man’s?


To the editor:

As I’ve been following the Kim Davis story from Grayson, Kentucky, it saddened my heart to see her “locked up” for the sake of Christ. She believes God’s Word and stands on God’s Word. I never have seen such faith in my life; not in any pastor or other human being. This lady demonstrated what it means to be a true Christian. She was willing to take a stand for the Lord, Jesus Christ. Mrs. Davis was not weak when it came to wrongdoing versus right-doing. This, my friend, is the display of a true and righteous Christian. I praise and thank God for her obedience and love; willing to suffer for righteousness’ sake. When it came to man’s law and God’s law, she knew God’s law was greater. I only wish we all knew it and would display it as she has done.

I have been a Christian for 10 years and I have not seen or read of any law greater than God’s and there will never be. Mrs. Davis stood firm and did not sway. She remembered Jesus said in Matthew 19:5: “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and shall cleave to his wife and the two shall become one.” Now if a man marries a man then they are still two; not one. God is the one who ordains marriage and no one else.

We, as citizens of this world, have no right to vote on anything which God has put in place. God spoke it, even before his Son came. In Leviticus 18:22 he declared: “Do not lie with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable” — and even if man allows and passes such law, it doesn’t change God’s law. His Word and Law will always be “greater than man’s.” Matthew 24:35 declares: “Heaven and earth shall pass away but my word shall never pass away.”

In ending this letter, I give all glory to God for showing Christians how to stand, walk and live. I don’t care how many “people” have sex changes, God made them male and female and they will always be as such in this world until the “day is done.” Thank God, I am a man, will always be a man, and have no desire to marry another man!
