Psalm 82 is a word from God directed to judges. These are powerful words and timeless (since God is timeless) and could very well be applied to those judges that sit on the bench in America. There are some very anti God rulings and over turnings that are happening now, that God speaks to here in this chapter that was written some three thousand years ago, but reads like a present day editorial….only the writer of this editorial is God!
Be it the Supreme Court, an appellate court, county or local, this is God’s word for you. From abortion to marijuana, you have Someone you must answer to; so you must be careful in what you decide. The majority opinion poll cannot be the only guiding force in decision making; and neither can your conscience. The constant we make judgements by is truth. And all truth is God’s truth as Augustine pronounced many centuries ago.
You may not think you are accountable.
You may think you personally can decide what is right.
God has already declared in His inerrant Word what is right and what is true.
Remember, since God is timeless, His words are truth and His truth has no expiration date.
Your accountability is not just to voters and constituents…..BUT YOU ARE ACCOUNTABLE PRIMARILY TO GOD
And Psalm 82 is your reminder….God is sending a message to the court system of America.
