First off, before I am accused of being a hater of these souls seeking gay marriage, I assure you I am not. I do however, find myself lately, hating all sin. Hating much of the world in which God is forsaken for sinful behavior. Not the souls committing the sins. As I to am a sinner. But rather the blatant attempt to entice others to believe something that is utterly untrue just for the purpose of offending God. Lucifer’s Mirage of Gay Marriage is a big one.
To the question or statement that God wants everyone to be happy and they should be allowed to do this is hog wash. Disobedience to God does NOT make Him happy. ALL sex outside of marriage is a sin. So stating that gays shoud be able to commit the sin of fornication just as straight people is utter nonsense. Sin is sin. No matter how man tries to justify it.
1 Thessalonians 5:22-23:
“Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
1 Corinthians 6:18-20 & 1 Corinthians 7:1-2
“Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.”
Gay marriage has never existed and never can as it is impossible for two men to be fruitful and multiply. Nor is it possible for two women to be fruitful and multiply. God has answered this question of mans “In the beginning”. Man is choosing to ignore reality and commit a very grave sin by stating God is wrong and he is right.
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
Marriage is the union of man & woman which the producing of children is a gift from God, the children are to be returned to God as they do not belong to us to do with them as we see fit. We are “Stewards” of these souls and all the gifts from God not owners.
Sex outside the bonds of “Marriage”, God’s Blessing, is a sin of the flesh committed against God for selfish reasons. No matter how much you THINK you love the other person, and want to share your body with them, true Love waits, love endures, love conquers. We are all called to OVERCOME the flesh and live in the “Spirit”.
“So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want.But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law. The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.” Galatians 5:16-22
When you overcome the flesh or you sinful nature, the SPIRIT is free to twist your soul back into the shape in which God created it. Allowing you to see the Truth clearly and follow it more closely. The love you have for your neighbor, becomes the true love of seeing that person as a “Soul” that God created in His image, rather then as an object placed in your life to do with as you see fit to make you feel good. The love you have endures all trials and your focus for that soul becomes one in which all you desire is for that soul is to get to heaven, even at the cost of you own life, and not whether they are simply sexually gratified and a tool to keep you company, or can pay your way in this life. Life becomes clear that it is meant to be endured, with patience, trust, faith, and compassion to seek the greater gift of eternal life, rather then settling for anything less.
