As I am sure that most people are now aware, on Friday the Supreme Court passed a law that allows same-sex marriage to occur all across the country. Not only does this law allow same-sex marriages to become legal, but it also overrides the sovereignty of the individual States that banned this from occurring. Like many before me, I am in favor of traditional marriage, regardless of what the Supreme Court demands. The Supreme Court is not the Supreme Being of the universe who created marriage, who judges sin, and who gave His all for love of humanity.
People can try – and have tried all throughout the history of humanity – to redefine what God has said to better suit their own needs. No matter how our earthly courts define certain words, God’s definition will stand forever. He has said that this world will pass away, but His word will never pass away. God, the Creator God we have previously spoken of, is the One who created the institution of marriage. Not people. In the Garden of Eden, God presented Eve to Adam in the first marriage ceremony and declared, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” Anything outside of this marriage described in Genesis 2:24, and elsewhere in the Bible, is described as disobedience to God and His will, and is thus sin.
Sin has distorted the perfect creation that God made in the first chapter of Genesis. Sin destroys and kills. That being said, one sin is not better or worse than the other. Homosexuality will take a person to hell just as sure as lying and murder will. God is a holy and just God, a righteous God, and He will not tolerate sin in any form. He will judge sin as unrighteous and dirty and ugly. He will judge America and her sinful people for trying to conform to the world and its ways, for turning her back on her God. It won’t be pretty. I sincerely hope with all my heart that you are ready for His judgment to fall.
Praise God that it is not too late for us. God loves the homosexual people just as much as He loves anyone else on this earth. The blood of Jesus Christ is just as available to them as it is to anyone else. The Bible says that if we humble ourselves, and pray, and seek God’s face and turn away from our wicked ways, then God will hear from heaven and He will heal the land. All we need to do is repent and seek God, and God will heal and save and restore.
Like many Christians before me, I also believe and uphold traditional marriage. It is good, holy, and right before God. Anything outside the traditional marriage view is sin; it is sin that God will judge and find to be evil. It can and it will doom people to hell unless they turn to Jesus and repent of their wicked ways. Thank God for His mercy, His love, and His grace.
