My wife showed me an interesting article today about the U.S. Supreme Court possibly ruling that same-sex marriages may be legal in all 50 States. As a Pastor, or Ordained Christian Minister, I will still decline any same-sex marriage no matter what the Supreme Court may say, because I feel the terms combined create an oxymoron. In Genesis, God created Adam on the sixth day. He said “Let Us make man in our image, after Our likeness.” (Genesis 1:26) Later He created a woman, not another man! Genesis Chapter 2, verse 22 Adam says when he meets Eve for the first time,”This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” This was the first marriage ever in history, and the way all marriages should be focused, God-centered. You see, God didn’t create two men, or two women. God created Man and Woman. Verse 24 Continued,”Therefore a man shall leave his mother and father and hold fast to his wife and they shall be come one flesh. It doesn’t say to his husband or her wife, but his wife.
Enter Prop 8 in California, in 2008, a proposition that affirmed that marriage was to be the way God intended it to be. It was later overturned. The gay mafia finally got their way through scare tactics and bullying. The 9th Circuit cited the 14th amendment rights were in violation as the result of the passing of Prop 8, and voted to overturn it. Recently the gay mafia has upped their game, while bakeries in Colorado, and ordained ministers in Idaho have come under fire for refusing service to them on the basis of religious beliefs. I say this to those who would try to sue me on the basis of discrimination: Try me, throw the book at me, I don’t care, I will still not perform the marriage based on principle, as well as my constitutional right to practice religion as I freely can. God is very clear on homosexuality. Paul writes in 1 Timothy warning against false teachers in verse 10, in Chapter 1 that those that deviate from God’s word will be punished, and he specifically mentions homosexuals. In 1 Corinthians 6:9, he pleads for us to flee from sexual immorality. “Or did you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do no be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor the idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Kids need a man and a woman to help raise them, and to make them. Men have the sperm and women the eggs. That’s God’s design for humanity. Men have that strong protective personality with the strength to back it, while the women are natural nurturers. It’s just so amazing how humans want to make everything caddywompus, while God has already put everything in place for us. HE’s GOT THIS Y’ALL!!! Since Satan tempted Eve to eat the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil, he’s been trying to undo God’s work.
It’s been said that financial problems are the leading cause of divorce, and the love of money is the root of all evil. Who would have thought that part of God’s plan for success helped in marriages too? Think about how the people that save themselves for marriage, don’t contract STI’s. Proverbs 3:5,6 say to trust God with all you have and He will direct your path. God can guide you through anything. Trust Him.
Homosexuality is not a part of God’s design. It’s increasingly more “popular” to be gay, But what’s popular isn’t always what’s right. We need to have integrity. Stand up for what’s right, and I don’t mean gay bashing. Of course people don’t really value the Bible as a credible source anymore. With Athiests suing to have crosses removed left and right, we must fight for our right to practice religion, as our founding fathers intended when they came here and started this country to do. So be strong America, fight boldly, because we are the the last stand in the fight against religious persecution. The enemy is going to come knocking, so we need to let Jesus in NOW, that way when trouble comes, we can say “Jesus, it’s for you”! I guarantee evil will turn tail and hit the trail when they come to find Jesus.
