Same-Sex “Marriage”?

The recent ruling of the California Supreme Court has made legal same-sex marriages in the state.  However, a state constitutional amendment negating the ruling is heading for the ballot in November and seems likely to pass.

What one opines about these developments depends, primarily on one’s views of the nature and function of a marriage. I don’t necessarily believe that people on either side of the issue are insincere, or even unjustifiably biased.

Some Christians today are baffled as to how such things could be happening in this “Christian nation”?  I for one am not.  This is happening because immorality (homosexuality, lesbianism, heterosexual adultery, fornication) is just one evidence of unbelief.  It is man’s attempting to define his sexuality apart from the Creator who designed it.  God made man: male and female (Gen. 1:27).  He gave them a dominion mandate to “be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth” (Gen. 1:28).  This is something a same-sex “marriage” could never do.  So it is very obvious, except for those looking for an excuse to support same-sex “marriage”, that God’s created purpose is for man and woman to “multiply and replenish the earth”.

How have we come to this in America?  Yesterday, I happened to hear in passing on “The Ellen Degeneres” program where she (Ellen) was announcing that now that California had legalized same-sex “marriages” she would finally be getting married legally.  There was a burst of thunderous applause and an apparent joy on the faces of her audience on her TV show set.   They were so “happy” for her.

I knew that the majority of these people had never understood that the Bible condemns gay “love” and “marriage” as an abandonment by God to “vile passions”; that the sexual interaction between man and man (homosexuality), woman and woman (Lesbianism) are, in God’s eyes, shameful acts “against nature” (Rom. 1:26-27); that these acts are an actual revolt and rebellion against God’s created order, an attempt to put God out of their thinking and thus “God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting” (Rom 1:28).

These promoters of same-sex “marriage” are blind leaders of the blind.  Their unbelief has led them to these vile passions which are “against nature” (Rom. 1:26).  They have exchanged the truth of God for a lie and therefore He has given them over not to a life of a blessed “marriage,” but to “uncleanness” (Rom. 1:24).  Therefore, these events and occurrences in our culture are not events to celebrate, but speak out against as immoral and unclean.

Is there a price to pay for that stand.  You’d better believe it!  Get ready to be labeled a narrow-minded bigot. And while darkness will always battle the light, it can never extinguish it (John 1;5).  God’s truth remains and same-sex “marriages” are no marriages at all.  They are immoral unions and manifestations of a sinful and rebellious people.

Only a national repentance and revival will turn our nation around.  Don’t give up your intercession for America.

’til next time . . .

Joy in the journey!
