Regardless of the revisionism that is going on with the liberal, “ahem… theologians” a gay marriage is not an acceptable marriage according to God Himself and His word. In this few verses spoken by God Himself, incarnated as the Word made flesh, He said in Matthew 19:3-6 in the New Testament, “…3 Some Pharisees came to Jesus, testing Him and asking, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason at all?” 4 And He answered and said, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE, 5 and said, ‘FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH’? 6 “So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.”…” Oh and if you’re curious that is God/Jesus quoting Himself when God spoke in Genesis.
In Genesis 1:27-28 God says that He created male and female for the purpose of reproduction and that for His glory as more humans equates to more image bearers. Genesis 1:27-28, “…27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” …”
In Genesis 2:24 we have the definition of marriage ordained and officiated by God, “…24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh…”
So any union devised by the darkened heart of sinful humans that isn’t the God ordained and defined union of one man to one woman for life is by Biblical definition not a marriage. You can call it what you want, but it isn’t marriage. Since Biblical marriage is a religious union the government has no business in it other than protecting our 1st amendment rights. We should never be forced to condone homosexual marriage or facilitate one, be it in business or our personal lives. It is an obvious abuse to do so.
Any sexual relations outside of a Biblical marriage are sinful. Homosexual desires are sinful. Heterosexual lusts are sinful outside of a heterosexual marriage. Desiring your spouse in a heterosexual marriage is not sinful. Desiring someone outside of your heterosexual marriage is sinful. These are very simple concepts people. God is very clear in His word people.
So since you can’t be married unless it is a heterosexual marriage, and all sex and lust outside of that marriage are sinful, you can see that homosexual lusts and unions are sinful and not to be condoned or in any otherwise facilitated by the Church.
The only people that have problems with this are the ones who want to condone, endorse, and otherwise approve of perversion. “Hey! I don’t like being called a pervert or thinking of myself as a pervert! I know! I’ll twist God’s word around or completely disregard it and live in disbelief of Him. That way I can justify my perversion instead of repenting and being forgiven.” Wow! What a mess.
Listen folks every Christian is no better than the vilest offender. The Bible says we all deserve to be killed by God, sent to Hell, and to have God’s wrath poured out on us for all eternity because we are sinners. Romans 3:23, “…23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, …”Even just a lie makes you worthy of hell. Revelation 21:8, “…8 “But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”…” Proverbs 12:22, “…22 Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal faithfully are His delight…” God sees a lustful thought as adultery. Jesus said in Matthew 5:28, “…but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart…”
We don’t hate liars and we don’t hate homosexuals. There are Christians who were once liars, and homosexuals, but they have repented of their sins and put their faith in Jesus to save them. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, “…9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. …”
Why would anyone being saved by grace hate a person who hasn’t been? Maybe you haven’t experienced hate from a Christian; maybe they have just told you the truth in love? Proverbs 27:6, “…6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend, But deceitful are the kisses of an enemy…” We don’t want you to die and go to hell for being an unrepentant sinner. We just want you to experience saving grace through saving faith and repentance given by God.
Forgiveness of sins is available to you. Jesus, being fully God and man, lived a perfect sinless life, one that you could not live. He earned all righteousness by obeying the law of God. He went to the cross and there was crucified, enduring the horrendous torture. Upon the cross the wrath of God that has been stored up for you upon the Day of Judgment was poured out on Jesus. He paid your penalty. Justice has been satisfied for you so that you don’t have to go to Hell and suffer, Jesus suffered for you. Only He could take the suffering of infinite punishment and survive until it was complete as He is God. The man Jesus then died, was buried, and resurrected of His own power, thus conquering death and sin. All we must do in response is to admit that we are sinners who deserve Hell, turn from our sins and begin to fight them, turn towards Jesus, and believe that His work of atonement on the cross paid our sin debt, and set us free to live for Him. Repent, and believe! It is that simple to be born again and made into a new person.
