Keep Defending Marriage

text size A A A

Today it is "controversial" to say that marriage is between one man and one woman --but it's true. The Lord 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 and change His design. 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).

Marriage is a holy and sacred institution created not by man, but by God. Marriage is between one man and one woman. God designed it that way; that is what it will always be. Marriage cannot be anything else but between one man and one woman.

Next week we will learn the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling about whether same-sex "marriage" will be legalized nationwide. Earlier this week, the Pew Research Center released a report showing that media coverage was biased by a factor of 5 to 1 in favor of same-sex marriage so be alert. This is an attack on Judeo-Christian values and it's persecution against marriage.

Scripture clearly teaches that God designed marriage to be between one man and one woman - it can be nothing else but that. Like we have shared in a previous edition, 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."

This edition of Unite the USA explains why marriage is always between a man and a woman. You will also find helpful tips and resources about how to address this issue along with an article by Kim Lehman called Frame the Truth and Stay on Message: Please Just Say Marriage.

Please pray daily for our country and for marriage to be protected. No matter what happens next week, remember that God is always on the throne and He will never leave or forsake us. So "keep on keeping on" and never give up on defending marriage!
