It is a truism that the world is rapidly changing and indeed it is. We have seen this most recently in the dramatic change in attitude toward homosexuality. Same-sex marriage, which just twenty years ago would have seemed like a shocking absurdity, is not legal in thirteen states and several foreign countries. What is the world coming to?

The conflict between Modernism and Fundamentalism was long and bitter, but in the end the liberals won control of most of the major Protestant denominations in America. But conservative, biblical Christianity still survives, and the major underlying issues are still very much alive.
Does truth change at the whim of the U.S. Supreme Court? It obviously does not.
"Lord, You have been our dwelling place in all generations.
Before the mountains were brought forth,
Or even You had formed the earth and the world,
Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God."
(Ps. 90:1,2; NKJV)Some things never change. There is order and structure in the universe. Nature proceeds according to certain well-defined patterns. Life and death continue their ceaseless cycle. And human nature remains the same. And above it all is the Supreme Being Who created the universe. He is the sovereign Lord of heaven and earth, and is not subject to the passing fads and fancies of human legislation. God did not consult the U. S. Supreme Court before He handed down the Ten Commandments. And long after nations and empires have been swept into the dustbin of history, the throne of God will continue to stand unmoved, eternal in the heavens.
In the Last Judgment God's opinion will be the only one that counts.
