*Disclaimer: this might offend you, since this is not the popular thought anymore. But Christians are different in that they do not think like the world. They are ought to think like Jesus and what the Bible says. Thus, I will be discussing this controversial topic from a Biblical point of view.
The devil is destroying society. One marriage at a time.
One family at a time. In fact, many families. He used divorce as one of his weapons and now he has gay marriage as another weapon.
On the 6th day God created something oh so beautiful! He created ONE man and when God saw that this man was lonely amongst the trillions of other species that He created, God creates A woman to complete the man and this world. A man can’t live without a woman. I’m serious. God said it himself, “The Genesis 2:18 God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.'”
For God, marriage is holy and sacred, and not to be taken lightly!
Some verses from the Old Testament addressing homosexuality:
“Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.” Leviticus 18:22
“If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.” Leviticus 20:13
Now, let’s look at some verses from the New Testament:
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.” Romans 1:26-28
“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 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 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.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
The Bible clearly condemns homosexuality and supports marriage between one man and one woman. So I personally don’t understand how Christians can support gay marriage. Scripture calls us to “not conform to the pattern of this world” Romans 12:2. Of course, just as God does not hate the sinner, but hates the sin, Christians should never hate someone for their sin either. But in love, point out, as to any other sinner that they need to repent and come to Jesus.
You can believe homosexuality isn’t a sin, as well as the other sins written in Scripture. However, the Lord tell us that those people do not enter the Kingdom of God. And that’s a very scary thought. But there is hope! Jesus can cleanse us of our sins. He wants each person to come to Him in repentance and receive forgiveness!
Let’s see what else we can dig up about marriage in the New Testament…
“Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.” Hebrews 13:4
“But at the beginning of creation God ‘made them male and female. ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Mark 10:6-9
“But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband.” 1 Corinthians 7:2
“But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit. Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” 1 Corinthians 6:17-20
The Bible supports a marriage between one man and one woman. That is how God created marriage from the first day humans existed. And as a Christian woman married to a Christian man, I think it is such a beautiful gift.
God bless you all!
