‘This historic day is nothing more than a verification of the chasm that ultimately will lead to our demise as a nation if left unchecked’

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Democrats across the nation are celebrating the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court. Judge Jackson, who turned some heads at her leniency towards child sex offenders and her failure to define the term “woman,” is the fulfillment of President Biden’s promise to appoint a Black female judge to the Court during his term.
Judge Phil Ginn, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES, www.ses.edu), recently responded to this historic appointment, claiming that Americans should be concerned about what Judge Jackson’s confirmation might mean for the future of the country.
Ginn commented, “Thursday, April 7, 2022, was marked as a day of victory for the newest Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson and for President Biden’s administration. What it was not, however, was a victory for the U. S Constitution, particularly the First Amendment to that great document. America is a nation of laws which are based on our Constitution. But when that document is not seen as a constant and steadfast document but as a ‘living breathing document,’ there is no solid ground upon which our nation can find solid footing.
“The Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence are the foundations which hold us together as a people. There is an old adage in the law that if the law does not exist in the heart of the people, then it simply does not exist at all. As Justice Brown Jackson answered questions before the Senate, it became painfully clear that these documents as we know them now do not exist in her heart, just as they don’t for a significant portion of our populace. Our nation is literally being ripped apart at the seams and this historic day is nothing more than a verification of the chasm that ultimately will lead to our demise as a nation if left unchecked.”
Judge Phil Ginn was appointed president of SES in April 2021 after a distinguished career as both a lawyer and a judge. He holds a B.A. from Appalachian State University, a J.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a Doctor of Ministry from Southern Evangelical Seminary. Prior to his appointment as SES president, Judge Ginn served as SES Chairman of the Board of Trustees.
The mission of SES is to train men and women, based on the inerrant and infallible written Word of God, for the evangelization of the world and the defense of the historic Christian faith. SES offers a range of undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degrees (along with several for-credit certificates) that uniquely integrate theology, philosophy, and apologetics to build a complete and systematic Christian worldview.
