So, it begins…
Yesterday in California people who have a sexual behavior different from the norm decided to usurp marriage, which by definition is one man and one one woman, as their right.
Why should this bother me and you? After all, is this not a case of discrimination? Why is it that the government should prefer a specific coupling over any coupling that anyone wants? Is this not just a religious question rather than one of the state?
The answer for this lies in the foundations of this country. The Declaration of Independence states that the rights the founders recognized each of us have stem from “the Creator”, not government. It was this basis that caused them to leave England, and this was the basis for our laws today.
The fact that our law comes not from man, but from “the Creator” means that natural law and biblical codes were the foundation for our government. Those laws codified not only marriage, but penalties for adultery, sodomy, homosexuality, and other sexual perversions.
The fact that some people are seeking to legitimize these deviant sexual behaviors and seek acceptance for their lifestyle does not make the intention of the founders any different. It does not suddenly guarantee the right of marriage for these people. It does not make it equivalent to the equal rights struggle of colored people. This is a behavior.
Now, as Christians, we realize that no matter what happens, we should expect our society to get worse and to follow after sin until Christ returns. We should proclaim the truth of God’s Word, but Christ told us to expect confrontation. In this case, we have 60% of people behind us saying these people should not be married.
