What is Marriage?
In Matthew 19 the Pharisees tempting him, and said to him, “Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?” Jesus’ answer was probably a lot more than they wanted to hear. He set the record straight. His answer settles several questions. One of those questions our Supreme Court does not understand either.
Jesus said, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife and the two shall become one flesh…’” This should settle any dispute as to what constitutes a marriage. Apparently our political leaders at the urging of some American people have seen fit to tinker with the natural order of things. Same sex marriage is now the law of the land—not voted into law by the people—not even by congress. The dictates of five judges deemed it so.
It seems the church has been shamed into submission by a very persistent onslaught of press, Hollywood propaganda and by our (the church) poor response to the issue of same-sex attraction and the practice of homosexuality. How could two of the same sex constitute a marriage?
Does the Word of God condemn sodomy, pederasty, homosexuality of any and all kinds? Yes, God condemns the practice of these things. Here are only a few verses that address this issue: Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:26-28; Leviticus 20:13; and 1 Timothy 1:10. There are many others that state similar things.
How do we as God’s people address this issue? There are really two issues: same sex attraction and homosexuality. Surely we know that sin is sin in what ever form it affects us. All sin can be forgiven. We as a church need to be instructed as to what God intends us to be, say and do. We shall do this in the near future probably on a Sunday evening. You’ll want to be there and participate.
