Let me begin today by clearly stating I am not against homosexuals in any way. I have friends who are gay and I love them very much. Does that mean I am "pro-homosexual"? Nope! If these dear friends of mine ask me (they don't), I will tell them I do not support their choice to pursue this lifestyle, nor do I believe it represents God's best for their lives….but I still love them regardless.
With that, I would like to present the following truth:
There is not, nor will there ever be such a thing as "gay marriage". It is an impossibility.
Even if the President and Congress decided today to legalize "gay marriage", it still could not exist.
You can have all the ceremonies you want in all the churches you want. You can read from the bible at the ceremony, pray prayers of blessings over the couple, exchange rings, call each other "spouse", share a home, start a family, grow old together, and participate in any and all the married "stuff" you choose to. Still, a "gay marriage" is not possible. It will never exist.
Why you ask? How could I say such a thing?
You see, at the heart of every marriage is a spiritual covenant. This God designed covenant can only exist between a man, a woman, and the Spirit of the living God. It is a bonding of three hearts. Marriage, as designed by God, is a spiritual union and God will never join His spirit with anything that attempts to usurp His perfect design. Gay marriage would certainly do that. Therefore, its existence can be in name only. It is a façade.
Bottom line: Nothing spiritual can exist apart from God, and real marriage is completely spiritual.
Honestly, I find it so very strange to hear certain Christians continually voice their support for gay marriage. It's kind of like hearing a person of Jewish descent saying Hitler had a right to do as he pleased, or hearing that Martin Luther King Jr. supported the KKK's existence. No I am NOT comparing homosexuals to Hitler or the KKK. My point is that Christians aligning their hearts to such pagan beliefs is equally, overwhelmingly absurd! It reminds me of the time when Jesus was accused of doing miracles through the power of Satan. He let them know in a hurry that such a thing was downright stupid.
Again, marriage cannot exist apart from God; therefore gay marriage is not possible. Marriage was designed by God to be something that can ONLY exist between a man and a woman. He himself is a living part of every true marriage. This was His design. He is God and He gets to choose. In other words, cows don't fly, dogs don't talk, and pigs don't play tennis. Why? Because, God did not design these creatures to function in such ways, nor did He create marriage for same sex couples. Sorry, you can't change the rules! He's the boss and His word is final.
In Genesis 2:24, the bible teaches us the following:
"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh."
Please notice it does not say "a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his husband", nor does it say "a woman will leave her father and mother and be united to her wife".
Say whatever you like, but your opinion (and my own) means nothing. Truthfully, you will NEVER find one single example of homosexual marriage in the bible. You might find negative examples of homosexual behavior, but never homosexual marriage. It's just not there.
God designed marriage to provide many beautiful benefits including partnership, spiritual intimacy and the ability to pursue God — together, but this only applies to a man and a woman. Anything beyond that is of a human origin and has nothing to do with God or His design for His creation.
I realize my words may sound somewhat harsh especially in a culture inundated with politically correct jargon, but truth is truth. Does that mean I am against people who struggle with homosexuality? Absolutely not! Again, I have friends that are homosexual and I love them very much. Still, my love for these individuals cannot excuse me (or you) from recognizing and submitting to God's design for life.
So, why did I bother to state the obvious? Why did I rehash what has been said a million times before? Well, apparently, some Christians in a sad attempt to not "offend" others have indeed tried to change the rules. I hear supposedly Christian people say things like, "They have a right to be happy", and "It's none of my business". Really? Is that what the word of God teaches? Fudge on truth if it offends? Only take a stand if it doesn't compromise the beliefs of others? I don't think so.
Does that mean we have to be mean-spirited jerks? Of course not, but we aren't doing anyone any great favor by pretending God is "okay" with what some "feel" is true.
Again I will say, nothing spiritual can exist apart from God, and real marriage is completely spiritual.
Therefore, like it or not, gay marriage is impossible. It does not exist, nor will it ever exist.
