OH PLEASE STOP THE NOISE.
right now California is talking about what marriage is.
Conservatives say it’s a man and a woman
Liberals say it’s between any two people.
People from the Planet Zeekdnf@@knsdf$% just don’t care.
ok… the last one was fake. But I’m not sorry to say that’s where I am at.
You want to know why? Because I believe no law by man has any say or relevance on the Law of God.
I want to make this clear… This is not a Christian nation… if you think this is… please go to a public school… say that… and see yourself belittled or escorted of the premises. I think we have too many people out there trying to fit into this world. Yeah yeah, I probably do, so I’m most likely yelling at myself.
But I do that a lot… so what’s new?
BACK TO TOPIC
OK, so I know an argument is that God has marriage to be between a man and a woman.
If California law changes and gay marriage is legal… does that mean the bible will change and God’s going to buckle down?
No… the world has gone against God for centuries and He seems to carry out his righteousness regardless of the laws of the world.
But Mike… We are called to be good citizens and stand for truth..
you know what friend… that’s a great point… here’s a great verse that kinda makes that point
16 “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean;
Remove the evil of your deeds from My sight.
Cease to do evil,
17 Learn to do good;
Reprove the ruthless,
Defend the orphan,
Plead for the widow. - Isaiah: 16-17
how many of us live this out… really? I do this at a micro level of my life. I hope to do more very soon… But I don’t think Justice will come through the banning of gay marriage… I think it will come when we care for people.. when we spread the love of Christ to those who haven’t heard it. And people please realize that the love of Christ isn’t spread through telling people “YOU’RE WRONG”… it’s through loving them even though they’re wrong. Your life style is what will show them Christ love…
How can we as Christians really defend marriage when over half the straight people getting married are getting divorced… and again how can we defend it when a large percent of those getting divorced are Christians… and unless there a lot of unfaithfulness(which there actually probably really is…but thats for another time…well actually no this might apply here…) There in itself is a prime example of an ungodly marriage… But why aren’t we as Christians putting our energy into showing the world that we believe in REAL marriage. It’s really hard for the world to give to rat tails about what we’re saying about REAL marriage when half the people that have REAL marriage give up on it because it wan’t… REAL enough.
I don’t condone homosexuality… and I don’t think the bible does either…
26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
This verse is pretty straight forward that a man and man is unnatural as well as a woman and a woman…
But if we keep reading… I feel like Paul’s next point looks like a lot of people out there right now on both sides of the marriage issue…
28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil,disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
There are so many people that are deceitful in how they present an argument about God or about marriage.
There are people slandering people, companies, organizations, the government, errybody just to make themselves right.
if I kept going on with this list I might say bad things…
but one of the ones that stands out
We are so UNLOVING right now in this time… We seem to put gay marriage on a pedestal of sins and battles…what the heck is wrong with us? People are dying lost and alone everyday and we’re hating on gay people. Am I voting for gay marriage… no… am I going to put energy into this campaign? HECK NO.
I want to put energy into showing people that the love of God is greater than the love of man. That the freedom of Christ is far greater than the freedoms of this country.. That the Savior will save you whether you’re gay or straight, black or white, Cali-resident or Texas citizen. God called us to FAR MORE than battling with the government to uphold something we in ourselves don’t understand enough. This government is of THIS WORLD. It doesn’t understand the word and His ways… why are we trying to force it by protesting.
We help see by love.
Says the Lord,
“Though your sins are as scarlet,
They will be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They will be like wool.
