And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.(Matthew 19:4-6)
A tragic milestone in the disintegration of our civilisation has been passed recently when the New York State Senate voted to legalize “gay marriage”. This would be the first time any state has ever legislated for gay marriage*. The other States that have it have had it imposed on them by an activist Judiciary.
The arrogance of these legislators is breath-taking. Overturning four thousand years of western civilization, these little men dismissed as irrelevant the entire Judeo Christian bedrock of our society.
Such shortsightedness! We have no idea what we are losing and gaining by this selling of our birthright for a mess of multicultural porridge. Consider this excerpt from Dennis Prager’s excellent article “Judaism’s sexual revolution”,
When Judaism demanded that all sexual activity be channeled into marriage, it changed the world. The Torah’s prohibition of non-marital sex quite simply made the creation of Western civilization possible. Societies that did not place boundaries around sexuality were stymied in their development. The subsequent dominance of the Western world can largely be attributed to the sexual revolution initiated by Judaism and later carried forward by Christianity.
This revolution consisted of forcing the sexual genie into the marital bottle. It ensured that sex no longer dominated society, heightened male-female love and sexuality (and thereby almost alone created the possibility of love and eroticism within marriage), and began the arduous task of elevating the status of women.
Perhaps the State wishes to co-opt marriage, as the fundamental unit, the center around which society revolves. Thus it presumes to re-define marriage along more “tolerant” (How I hate the way that word has evolved in the newspeak!) lines.
Supposedly we will now have a more benevolent, compassionate society, free of religious scruples. As a society we are now allegedly “free” to redefine marriage, the fundamental human unit of society. But marriage was ordained by God, And it is He that defines and sanctions it! Who do our leaders think they are ?
Marriage is primal. It is the building block of our culture. It cannot be cavalierly tampered with without serious unforseen consequences. Ah but the old ways must go down the “memory hole” mustn’t they? The King is dead (God)…Long live the (new) King( the state) ! We shall soon see about that!
Remember that marriage was ordained by God before there was a “Fall of man”. The first “not good” was before Adam and Eve sinned. Even before the fall, it was seen that “it is not good for man to be alone”. How does God take a “not good” and make it into a “good”?
It looks a lot like death and resurrection. Adam was put into a deep sleep, and surgery was performed, for the woman was taken out of the side of the man. The man who came out of the surgery had a scar in his side, when his bride was presented to Him.
Marriage was ordained by God to be a valid, permanent, fruitful covenant of companionship. The place to safely rear children, and to present them to God and man for the greater good.
Before there was Father/Son, Sister/brother, before there was such a thing as a tribe, team, Clan, military unit, mens group, work relationship , city or state there was “male and Female in the image of God…One flesh”.
Marriage is bigger than the two who come together in God’s sigh to cleave as one. Marriage is actually a prophecy . The Bible begins with a wedding and Ends with a wedding. The true Bridegroom also has a scar in his side, for Jesus died for those who would believe in him, and “have and hold to him forever”.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. (Ephesians 5:31-32)
God will judge those who sin against marriage, those who dismiss it as nothing, those who have worked tirelessly to destroy it, those who pervert the living prophecy that marriage is, of Christ the groom who laid down his life for his church!
Therefore there can be no gay marriage, it is an oxymoron, two men cannot become one flesh, (one person), Two women cannot “Be fruitful and multiply”. Children cannot safely be reared in such loveless homes. We have sown to the wind, now nationally we must reap the whirlwind, woe to us!
I have a theory about why Sodomites want to encroach upon marriage. Not because they love it, but because they instinctively hate it, knowing that it is Holy, and of God, the God that they are in rebellion against.
They would bring down from its lofty position, and wipe their feet upon it, to show everyone that there is nothing Holy, Nothing above us, nothing at all but self…and the State to worship. May we who await the true bridegroom never bow to the multicultural idol.
* Correction- Evidently Vermont’s legislature voted to have this abomination before New York did, so they were the first to officially profane Marriage.
