Our Supreme Court Justices decided to override the power of each state and declared same sex marriage legal.
Many of the supporters of this decision have been using the slogan “love wins” on social networking sites. Love? Really?
For those of us who disagree and believe that marriage is defined by God as one man + one woman, it was disappointing to say the least. I am disappointed in our president, the Supreme Court, and others who confess to be Christians.
I find it interesting that supporters of this decision are using LOVE to describe what has taken place. They don’t realize that God is LOVE and God’s ways are right. God’s precepts are good. Yes everyone, LOVE DOES WIN. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob IS LOVE and His word will never disappear.
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.
Though man may create laws, they will never replace God’s Word. They never can.
The Bible is clear about marriage and God’s stand on same sex relationships.
Here is a quote from an article written by Dr. George O. Wood with the Assemblies of God:
Scripture defines marriage solely in terms of the union of a man and a woman (e.g., Matthew 19:4–6; Mark 10:5–9; cf. Genesis 1:27–28, 2:20–24; Ephesians 5:21–32). Not only that, Scripture prohibits same-sex intercourse (Romans 1:26–27; 1 Corinthians 6:9; 1 Timothy 1:10; cf. Leviticus 18:22, 20:13). When it comes to same-sex marriage, Scripture prohibits what the Supreme Court permits.
If you really love someone — tell them the truth.
If you really love someone — offer them hope and freedom.
Encouraging people who might have a legal right to do something that isn’t good for them spiritually isn’t love. Are you saying you know more than God who created true love?
If your teenager wanted to have premarital sex, would you say — “Yes dear, love wins — enjoy what feels natural to you” and encourage them to do what is hurtful to them? Do you think affairs are fine since it is someone’s desire? What if they have had the desire to have multiple partners since they were old enough to desire another person? Does that mean they were born with that desire and should go through life surrendering to it? Does that make it right?
I feel sad for anyone who believes God created them in a way that is the opposite of His Word. That could go in many directions. Some people think that being fearful is just the way they were made. This isn’t true though — because God’s Word says the opposite. God loves us and would never create us for failure. We all have stuff, but different crosses to carry. We have different junk, but the SAME Savior! Just as He has delivered me — He can deliver you!
Love is pointing people to the truth.
We should love all people.
I keep seeing others post that we don’t need to point out what we dislike, but point out what we like about others, etc … I have never criticized a person for struggling with a gay lifestyle. I have never been unkind to someone because of his/her lifestyle. I love people and I KNOW God loves them. I shared in a previous post how God gave me a vision for a homosexual guy in a local store. It was all about God’s love for him, but God also knew about his brokenness as a child. I shared it with him and he left in happy tears.
I have areas that I have struggled with in my lifetime. I have failed and fallen. I am no better than anyone else, but I don’t make excuses for my sin. I don’t call it good and force it on anyone else. I need a savior just like everyone else.
We all need Jesus!
True love is sharing God’s love and sharing that there is HOPE. God loves His creation. We were made in His wonderful image.
Honor His Word.
Our battle is not against flesh and blood, but it is a spiritual battle. If you struggle with homosexual desires and want to find freedom, Janet Boynes has a wonderful ministry. She is an ex-lesbian who now helps many others find freedom in Christ. You can visit her ministry by clicking here.
