Same-Sex MarriagePosted: December 18, 2008
Question: Dewalt, can you Affirm for me one’s Stance against same-sex marriage?
My Answer: I’ll try… However I am no expert. I would begin by stating that we all agree that man and woman together replenishes the earth? And if all were to be gay, then how would that be done? Passages like in the garden in Gen. 2:18 where God said, “It is not good for man to be alone” are of major importance. If God wanted the culture of the garden to then have a “buddy” or a partner of the same sex, then he would have place along side him one of the same sex. Farther in Gen. 2 after Eve is made God then explains in how marriage and a relationship is to be done, saying “she shall be called woman.” It was women made with man, not picking or choosing what one could have, or want, or think he needs, but God calling a woman to come along side of a man for a relationship. Now father more in doing so, God then in verses 24 & 25 of Gen. 2, God claims that one woman and one man become one in flesh when coming together. Now it one said 1 + 1 = 2 no one would argue that? Man + Woman = One flesh. Meaning Man + anything else, man, men, women, animals, etc. Any other formula = death. How? Easily seen in Romans 1:18-232, namely, verses 26 – 28 when they state:
“For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.”
