Gay Marriage




First, a few brazen individuals began to come out of the closet; then more and more followed. There began a clamor for recognition as a legitimate alternate lifestyle. The movement gained political power. The pollsters now say that the majority of American people now approve. The Supreme Court is now being asked to weigh-in on the matter.


For Christian people who accept the Bible as the word of God, it is a moral issue and therefore cannot be settled by any earthly court no matter how high. Nor can it be settled by a majority vote or by each individual’s conscience. Rather God has already legislated in His word. Note the following from the Bible:


“Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind: it is abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22; See also Leviticus 20:13)


“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affection: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which is meet.” (Romans 1:26-27)


“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
