4-10-2015 What Is Discrimination #5

By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith” (Hebrews 11:7 NKJV). Noah could not obey God in building the Ark without “condemning the world.” What if a State or Federal Law had been passed that told Noah he could not “condemn the world,” but had to permit everyone who wanted to to enter that Ark? Amendment I of the United States Constitution says: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Discrimination based on moral values is “the free exercise thereof.” “It is not good to show partiality to the wicked, Or to overthrow the righteous in judgment” (Proverbs 18:5 NKJV).
