Gay marriage will never be God's law

By Tom Smiley
This past week the state of New York joined 5 other states in passing a law that allows people of the same sex to marry. Well, it might be New York's law and it might become Georgia's law (one day), but it will never become God's law.<br /> <br /> In Leviticus 18:22, God refers to homosexuality as an abomination and an unnatural sin. The New Testament letter Romans declares homosexual actions as shameful, unnatural, and indecent. The point is that since homosexuality is condemned in the Bible, it is clear that same sex marriage would not be God's will.<br /> <br /> Whenever the Bible mentions marriage, it is between a male and a female. In passages that contain instructions regarding marriage such as I Corinthians 7:2-16 and Ephesians 5:23-33, the Bible clearly identifies marriage as being between a man and a woman. Biblically speaking, marriage is defined as a lifetime union of a man and a woman, primarily for the purpose of building a family and providing a stable environment for that family.<br /> <br /> Some don't accept the absolute truth of the Bible. To those who don't hold to the sufficiency of God's word on this topic, it is insightful to note non-Biblical support for marriage being defined between one man and one woman.<br /> <br /> First, history argues against gay marriage. In every human civilization in world history the biblical view of marriage is the universal understanding of marriage.<br /> <br /> Psychology argues against gay marriage. Psychologists contend that a union between a man and woman in which both spouses serve as good gender role models is the best environment in which to raise well-adjusted children. Moreover, modern secular psychology recognizes that men and women are psychologically and emotionally designed to complement one another.<br /> <br /> So what is the problem?<br /> <br /> If the Bible, history, psychology, and nature all argue for marriage being between a man and a woman - why is there such controversy today?<br /> <br /> The answer according to the Bible is that everyone inherently knows that homosexuality is immoral and unnatural, and the only way to suppress this inherent knowledge is by normalizing homosexuality and attacking any and all opposition to it.<br /> <br /> So, the homosexual agenda is to reject and replace truth with a lie. The lie is then promoted and the truth suppressed and attacked. Speaking of lies and misinformation. (What the gay radical agenda does not want you to know).<br /> <br /> * In the decision of the United States in Murphy v. Ramsey (1885), it was stated, To allow a 'right' to a marriage of one man and two or more women would redefine marriage as it has been understood in all the laws of the United States
