Marriage is between one man and one woman. God designed it that way; that is what it will always be. It cannot be redefined. Marriage cannot be anything else but between one man and one woman.
This summer, we will learn the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling about whether same-sex "marriage" will be legalized nationwide. On March 26 and 27, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments concerning the constitutionality of Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California's Proposition 8. DOMA was passed during the Clinton administration to protect marriage as being between a man and a woman. In 2008, Prop. 8 was voted on and approved by the people of California; it states that marriage is between a man and a woman as well. We pray that marriage will be defended and that the U.S. Supreme Court will not legislate from the bench by ruling in favor of same-sex "marriage" by throwing out DOMA and Prop. 8.
Today it is "controversial" to say that marriage is between one man and one woman --but it's true. God chooses our sex/gender...not humans. He knows what He's doing when He creates each person. That's why it's so disturbing to see how people try to take His place by turning marriage into something He never made it to be... The Lord loves everyone, but He does not approve of homosexual practices. Such behavior is perverse and unnatural. He has the best in mind for each person He creates which is why the Bible clearly warns against homosexuality. From Genesis on, the Bible praises the marriage of a man and a woman, but it always speaks very critically of homosexual behavior whenever it is mentioned (i.e. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, Jude 7, Romans 1:18-32, Leviticus 18:22).
Scripture clearly teaches that God designed marriage to be between one man and one woman - it can be nothing else but that. For example, Jesus said in Matthew 19:4-6, "Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, 'Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate."
In response to this urgent time in our history, this edition of Unite the USA explains why marriage is always between a man and a woman. Sandy Rios (former president of Concerned Women for America) has kindly allowed us to featured her article called The Assault on the Family. You will also find helpful tips and resources about how to address this issue along with a special "Q and A" section by the late Chuck Colson. You will gain a clearer understanding about why it's important to defend, protect, and respect marriage as God intended it to be. Read more here: http://www.unitetheusa.org/id96.html.
