How Long O God?

O LORD GOD, to whom vengeance  belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.  Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: and shew judgement, render a reward to the proud.  LORD how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?  How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?   They break in pieces, O LORD, and afflict thine inheritance. (Psalms 94:1-4).  

We who are members of the Church of God in Christ have allowed the word of God to become secondary.  The culture talks about seperation of church and state, we want to seperate how we operate from the Word of God.  We esteem the “Constitution above the Word of God.  In Ps 138.2 David says I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindes and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above above all thy name.   How can we neglect justice in the name of ” the Constitution” and think we are doing GOD a service .   In Amos 5:21-24  GOD says I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your soloemn assemblies.  Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: niether will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.  Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.  But let judgement run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream. 

GOD watches his word, not the constitution.  When will we stop bowing to the altar of the constitution.  When will we stop offering victims on the altar of the constitution by neglecting the cries of the  abused,  and by neglecting to dispense justice to the weak and oppressed.   Isaiah 9:16 says For the leaders of this people cause them to err, and they that follow them are destroyed.

When the whirlwind comes, how many will cry out why  GOD .  He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? (Micah 6:8).                                                                                                                                                                                                     

Why are things like this tolerated in the Church of God in Christ Restraining order
