The Attack on Marriage

In the beginning, God created man. Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” (Genesis 2:18) Notice that Adam was not totally alone; he was still in communion with God, and surrounded by animals. But God said it wasn't good for him to be without a helper, and so He gave him Eve. Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24)

That was the first marriage, personally performed by the Lord Himself. It is an earthly symbol of the relationship of Christ and His Bride, displayed through thousands of years of marriages. Every single one of those marriages has been an imperfect example, with a sinful man and a sinful woman, but it is still a holy union, designed by God.

"For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error." - Romans 1:26-27

This perversion has been labeled "homosexuality," although I think even describing it so lends too much unwarranted justification; the idea that human sexual "orientation" could be variable is just too ridiculous. After an enormous amount of pressure in our society to "accept" the gay and lesbian lifestyle as "normal," they are trying to redefine the sacred covenant of marriage to allow these shameless "couples" to marry. This is clearly an attack, driven by Satan, to destroy the true definition of marriage.

This May, in North Carolina, voters have a chance to defend marriage from this mockery of God's creation. 30 other states have already adopted a marriage amendment in their constitutions. Please get out and vote FOR the marriage amendment, and protect the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman.

  1. I know this post is months old, but I cannot ignore your ignorance; marriage pre-dates christianity, so I think you will actually find that the bible redefined what marriage was way before anyone else did,

  2. Oh, my! It seems that you are in need of some education. The verses in Romans 1 refer to male prostitution--some of which was homosexual-- and not homosexuality in and of itself. There are some versus against homosexuality in Leviticus. Do you follow everything in Leviticus to the letter? That means you do not eat shrimp, wear mixed fabrics, or support the sport of football (touching the skin of a pig).

    Also, contrary to the belief of some (not very smart) people, homosexuality is NOT a choice. Saying that someone "choose" to be gay is like saying a person "chooses" to have black skin, to be blind, to be tall, or to have blue eyes. There is even a gene that has been linked to homosexuality-- and you can't pray away your genetic makeup! Instead, we should thank God for creating homosexuals, and embrace them just as they are (that is what Jesus would do).

    I hope I don't sound harsh. You are certainly entitled to your opinions! Just please make sure you are making educated, truthful statements if you are going to write them on the internet. Pick up a book before you click "new post"-- it really helps! Have a blessed day!

    Marriage might precede modern Christianity, but I believe the Bible is literal, so I believe the Genesis account is true, and the first marriage (between Adam and Eve) was ordained and created by God. So actually, the Bible holds the original definition of marriage.

    Cassandra:
    "Education" would require some references, or some way of backing up what you say. I see nothing in those verses to support your claim, and even if it were so, does not automatically mean that God accepts homosexuality.
    As to your reference to the laws in Leviticus, I am freed from the laws by God's grace, but that doesn't mean that the laws are abolished.

    As to whether it's a gene or not does not matter. Someone may have a tendency toward violence, or a genetic predisposition to alcoholism. That doesn't mean they should just shrug and say, "oh, well, it's in my genes." You can resist sinful urges. Jesus loves everyone, and wants to free them from sin.

    You don't sound harsh. Thanks for allowing me my opinions, and thanks for sharing yours. I did a lot of research before I wrote this post, and I believe it is educated and truthful. Although I don't think that's really a concern on the internet in general. I appreciate your comment, and would be interested in more information (scriptural or historical) about your interpretation of the verses in Romans 1. =)
