Do homosexuals have an arrogant disrespect for marriage? Why do their supporters continue to try forcing their perversion through the law? Is their hate for Christ and His church is blatant? When activist courts take the position upon themselves to change marriage to “same-sex marriage,” this is a direct attack against the institution of marriage established by God. There is no other older institution. This is no institution of man for God established marriage.
Hatred of Marriage
Where do homosexuals get their union? They get their “rights” from judges who disregard God. Homosexual and their supports appear to hate Jesus Christ and Christians. The institution of marriage is in Genesis 2:24, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” Christ also affirmed,
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 they shall become one flesh”? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no one separate. (Matt 19:4–6).
Under the label of “civil rights,” homosexuals and supporters mock God’s institution of marriage. They are ashamed of the words of Christ. Christ declared, “For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when He comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels” (Luke 9:26). There is no sincerity from those are willingly ignorant and blame their guilty consciences on Christians. They try to place God’s institution next to that of a sexual union of unnatural sexual desires (Rom 1:24–27). The attacks against Christians will increase. Christians will have no right to decide against employing or renting to those who are morally unqualified. This is hatred in action with prideful celebration in their defiance. They hope to lay their pain of guilt of their sin on the backs of Christians. Lashing out at Christians will never relieve their pain and sorrow of their consciences raging against God’s law.
Who can let their child watch television without having pro-homosexual advocates sexually harass through programs for children and teens? They promote the acceptance of homosexuality. They are out to proselyte others to tolerate evil and engage in a life of sin. Television news programs present themselves as standing on some “moral” high ground by hiring perverts to publicly display their “affection” to record the moral disgust of people’s consciences. Then, they scoff at the responses of people living in areas that are highly populated with Christians. However, many Christians believe that homosexuals and their supporters are good-hearted people who just do not know better. There may be a few who do not know better being molested in their youth, but their hearts are not good. Jesus revealed that their hearts are evil (Mark 7:20–23).
The Natural Law and the Conscience
Did God not give them a conscience?
For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them. (Rom 2:14–15)
As for homosexuals and their God-hating allies, they fulfill Scripture, “Though they know God’s decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them” (Rom 1:32). They give approval to all sorts of sins calling it “tolerance” saying that real Christians tolerate evil. Christ never tolerated sin by remaining silent. Paul presented the sins at the base of the homosexual:
They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. (Rom 1:29–31)
Do not trust those who are so perverted that they have,
exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameful acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. (Rom 1:25–27)
In rejecting God, God gave them up to such unnatural desires, and by this, people know they are guilty of the sins listed in Romans 1:29–31. This is no self-righteous declaration all are guilty before God when sin came alive in each person (Rom 3:23; 7:9). However, the difference between the saved and the condemned is that Christ saves repentant baptized believers.
A Call for Repentance
Christians cannot reject God’s standard. Should Christians trust the enemies of Christ? Will Christians allow such evil people to teach their children in any place? Who knows how long that this article can present such words since they would call me hateful and call for marginalizing followers of Christ. Christ commanded, “Judge not according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment” (John 7:24).
I honor, respect, and love all, but I will neither give up God’s institution of marriage, tolerate sin without expressing the truth, nor allow evil to be called good. This is the call for prayer that such people repent and avoid their just wrath in due time. God help us all! Paul revealed,
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hinder the truth in unrighteousness; because that which is known of God is manifest in them; for God manifested it unto them. (Rom 1:18–19)
The times of ignorance therefore God overlooked; but now He commands people that they should all everywhere repent: (Acts 17:30).
