Today the Supreme Court begins hearing oral arguments on the highly controversial subject of gay marriage. Please pray. Pray with your families. Don't let anything hinder you from praying.
As I have previously written on this subject, I am highly opposed to all homosexual behavior. As a dedicated Christian who knows what the Holy Bible clearly states about homosexuality, I have no choice but to reject it, because God rejects it. Leviticus 18:22 says, "Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind: it is abomination."
Homosexuality is not natural for it goes against the natural God-given function of men and women. We must not allow our minds to be twisted by some that propound that "they were born that way." This means they have no choice in the matter and it would be unfair for God or man to judge them as sinners.
I ask the question: "Are prostitutes born prostitutes? Can thieves cannot help themselves because they were born thieves? Do murderers murder because they were born murderers? Give me a break. Some say they know gays who are wonderful neighbors and friends, therefore it would be wrong to judge them. People can say, and do say the same about murderers, rapists, and thieves. Most people, no matter what they do in the dark can often appear to be friendly neighbors and workmates to unsuspecting people.
The evil of homosexuality, like all sin, is contagious if unchecked. We must never forget that just as Sodom and Gomorrah were judged by God with a massive overthrow of fire and brimstone (Genesis 18 ad 19) so were many powerful empires brought down when homosexuality was at its highest level, e.g. the Roman Empire.
The fact that there are those who support gay marriage, giving it the same status as the marriage of one man and one woman denigrates holy wedlock which was initiated and ordained by God in the beginning.
Marriage is a holy institution. Genesis 23, 24 says: "And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a MAN leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his WIFE: and they shall be one flesh."
Those who fear God will stand against legalizing gay marriage for the Bible makes it clear that this sin brings judgment from God on cities, nations, and empires. Just because we may feel safe at this present time does not mean to say that judgment will not come. Remember Noah's flood. Remember Sodom and Gomorrah. God has not changed.
I believe God loves all sinners enough to send His only beloved son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins. All we have to do is repent and be converted. It is right that we should love all homosexuals, but hate their sin. Even as we should love all sinners, but at the same time hate their sin.
The so-called Christians who support gay marriage do not adhere to the same Bible that I seek to adhere to. Nor do they serve the same God that I seek to worship. Just as God is indeed a God of AMAZING GRACE, He is also a God who judges those who trifle and abuse His grace.
Galatians 6:7, 8 says: "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting."
