What is Biblical Marriage?
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And, God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth…”Genesis 1:27-28….
“And, the rib which the LORD GOD had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought HER unto the man…Therefore shall a MAN leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his WIFE; and they shall be one flesh…”Genesis 2:22-24 KJV
Marriage is the UNION of a MAN (husband) and a WOMAN (wife)…The Bible clearly states that it is the flesh of the Man and his Wife (a woman…from the rib of man) that becomes ONE flesh in union (Marriage). The “two” (man and woman) becoming one flesh is the Biblical definition of Marriage…So, Biblically no matter if a “man” marries another “man,” or a “woman” marries another “woman,” …there is NO union of FLESH…THEREFORE, NO MARRIAGE!
No matter what our current president says, GOD DOES NOT SEE THE FLESH OF MAN WITH MAN OR WOMAN WITH WOMAN AS MARRIAGE…GOD SEES IT AS SIN…A CASE OF MAN DOING WHAT IS RIGHT IN HIS OWN EYES AND NOT OBEYING GOD’S TRUTH! Do what you wish, but the Bible is very clear on this matter!
So, now our current leader has polluted the simple-minded majority of our nation into one cleverly “spinned” philosophy, “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” What a can of worms that opens!! So, let me ask you a question….If some sick pervert out there wants to be sexually molested for pleasure, then it’s ok if he rapes someone else, because that is what he wants!!!???? “Doing unto others as you would have others do unto you.”
Do you see where I am going with this? Obama’s new “spin” is an open invitation for man’s own interpretation…But, isn’t that what “SIN” is all about? Doing things and acting on behalf of one’s own self instead of God’s truths or God’s ways?? But, after all didn’t our current president already tell the world that the USA is no longer a “Christian” nation? So, with that prior public announcement…why are we, as Americans, so surprised? We shouldn’t be surprised…even if we are!
Let me go on record as saying that I believe the “act” of homosexuality goes against the teachings of God’s Word, the Holy Bible…I believe God created male and female to become ONE in the flesh (which is by definition the meaning of Biblical marriage). The world is filled with SIN (acts against God’s directives)…But, only one sin is mentioned in the Bible as going against the very nature of God and against ones own body…”For this cause GOD gave them up unto vile affections; 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 was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient…Genesis 1:26-28).
Let me also go on record as saying I do NOT hate the one who participates in homosexuality…My heart bleeds for their actions as their conscience has been darkened toward their Creator, God. Their feelings, emotions, thoughts, and perspectives are changed into “whatever is right in their own eyes.” Without God’s divine intervention, mercy, and grace, once a man or woman has denounced God’s truth regarding this specific matter, they are left to their own ways, actions, reactions, and interpretations… Mind you…It’s not my call…It’s God’s!
Truthfully, I am more upset that our current president did his best to convince ALL Americans that “The basis of Christianity is doing unto others as you would have others do unto you.” That is taking a portion of the “truth,” but adding his own “spin” to it! The Bible teaches, “But God commendeth his love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Yes, Christ died for ALL sins (every sin…mine included!)…Yet; after we have admitted that we are in need of a personal Savior to reconcile us back unto God; believed in the finished works of Jesus Christ who has pardoned and forgiven us of our sins; and confessed Jesus as Lord…we are NEW creatures in Christ Jesus; born again believers…”Old things have passed away behold all things become new.” (Romans) Once we have established a born-again, “salvation,” relationship with God through Jesus Christ, we turn away from our past sins! Not that we won’t ever “sin” (falling short of God’s glory) again, but we will not CHOOSE to live within, nurture, and maintain our old nature of sinfulness! We will want to be about our Heavenly Father’s business…Living as He teaches in His Word; The Holy Bible…That, my dear friend, goes a lot farther than simply, “doing unto others as we would have others do unto us!” Biblical salvation is not based upon “works,” it is based upon a relationship with God through Jesus Christ through obedience to His Word!
But, who am I? One voice…One Citizen…One believer…One who still believes the Bible is the Voice of God to my generation as well as past, present, and future generations… No; I’m not the leader of a nation trying to “convince” its citizens to denounce their “old-fashioned” ways and step into the 21st century’s new belief system…Now, that our current president has tried to redefine our nation’s economy and Christian heritage, is he now trying to redefine our nation’s conscience; as well as a man’s conscience…Scary; isn’t it??? God have mercy…
