Urgent Prayer Request: Most Historic Religious Liberty Case Ever!

Craig HueyReality Alert, Religious Liberties & The Persecuted Church1 Comment

Can states compel you to bake a cake that celebrates a lifestyle and a behavior that violates your conscious and is contrary to your Biblical values.

The United States Supreme Court will soon decide on one of the most historic religious freedom cases ever.

The case is Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. It centers on whether or not a state may, in the interest of preventing discrimination, require a private baker to produce a custom wedding cake for a same-sex marriage celebration.

At stake is whether or not the First Amendment to the Constitution protects all Americans at all times…

Jack Phillips is a Christian baker who designs custom cakes. His business Masterpiece Cakeshop, is an expression of his Christian faith.

He has refused business in the past that he believed conflicted with his faith:

  • Halloween cakes
  • Cakes that celebrate divorce
  • A request by the Satanic Temple to create a cake for Satan’s birthday

He sells premade cakes to anyone – it’s part of his witness and misistry.

But he also declined a request from a same-sex couple to design a cake for their same-sex wedding.

That’s what got him in trouble…

The couple brought Phillips before the Colorado Civil Rights Commission, which fined him and ordered him and his employees to go through a “reeducation program.”

During the hearing, Justice Kennedy informed one of the Colorado state attorneys, “Counselor, tolerance is essential in a free society. It seems to me the state in its position has been neither tolerant nor respectful of Mr. Phillips’ religious beliefs.”

This is a landmark case…it will be a landmark decision.

Please pray for the Supreme Court justices that they will rule fairly and rightly in this case.

Please pray for Jack Phillips and for the attorneys who are representing him and defending religious liberty and free speech.

And pray that when discussing this issue, Christians will speak the truth in love, defending Biblical morality in a spirit of humble grace.

  1. “”Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness.”(1John 3:4) ” Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to GOD. Therefore no one will be declared righteous in His sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin. But now a righteousness from GOD, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from GOD comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of GOD, and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”(Romans 3:19-24)
    Thank GOD for the faith, love and compassion of the saint Jack Phillips. We know that because “He who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. He who does what is sinful is of the devil.”(1John 3:7-8)
