same sex marriage
“Same-Sex Marriage”
  • On Nov. 6, 2012 Washington State, Maine, and Maryland became the first states to pass “same-sex marriage” by popular vote. They join six other states– New York, Connecticut, Iowa, Massa-chusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont – and the District of Columbia, which had already issued Court rulings, or enacted laws permitting “same- sex marriage.”
  • Many celebrate this trend in the wrong direction.
  • Reminds us of Isaiah 5:20!
  • “Same-Sex marriage” is a misnomer!
  • Morally and spiritually, our nation is rapidly deteriorating!
    • Newt Gingrich: “since 1963 in the courts driving God out of public life…”
    • Defense of Marriage Act defined marriage as “between one man and one woman” (Clinton Ad.)
    • One more liberal judge to the Supreme Court will result in “same-sex marriage” in all 50 states.
  • “Same-sex marriage” not confined to the U.S.
  • Reminds us of Genesis 18:20; 13:12.
what is wrong with same sex marriage
What is Wrong with “Same-Sex Marriage?”
  • “Same-Sex Marriage” is not marriage!
    • Marriage is a union between a man a woman. Gen. 2:18,21-24; Matt. 19:3-9; Rom. 7:2-3; I Cor. 7:2-4l
    • It is a “covenant,” Malachi 2:14.
  • It is sinful! I Corinthians 6:9-10; I Timothy 1:9-11.
    • It is a perversion of one of the purposes of marriage, that of child bearing, I Timothy 5:14
  • It is against nature, Romans 1:26-27.
    • Violates the natural order designed by God. It is “vile affection,” “unseemly,” “error.”
what is wrong continued
“What is Wrong” (Continued)
  • It Deprives a child either of a father or a mother.
    • God designed it so that a child would have both a father and a mother, Eph. 6:4; I Timothy 5:14; Titus 2:4-5; Proverbs 1:8-9.
  • It promotes a life style detrimental to society.
    • Consider the kind of society outlined in Romans 1:26-31, and its effect on children growing up in that society..
    • If “marriage” can be re-defined to describe a union between two people of the same sex, why can it not also be re-defined to include other “against nature” arrangements?
what is wrong it has far reaching effects
What is Wrong? It has Far-reaching Effects!
  • On the Government.
    • God designed government to protect those who do good and to punish evil-doers, Romans 13:1-4. Legalized “same sex marriage” will compel judges and officials to perform such “marriages.”
  • On Public Education.
    • Schools will be compelled to defend homosexual relationships.
  • On Businesses. Genesis 3:19; Ephesians 4:28.
    • Corporations will be compelled to provide insurance benefits and employ such people.
what can we do
What Can We Do?
  • Psalm 11:3: “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” cf. I Timothy 3:1.
  • We Can Pray! I Thessalonians 5:17; James 5:16.
    • For those caught up in this “life style!”
    • For those in authority, Romans 13:1-2
    • For your family, your mate, your children!
  • Trust in the Lord! Proverbs 3:5; Romans 8:28.
  • Make your home all that God intended it to be!
    • Husbands (Eph. 5:25), Wives (Titus 2:4) Parents (Deuteronomy 6:6-7; Psa. 127:23-4) Young people (I Timothy 5:22)
what can we do continued
What Can We Do? (continued)
  • Local Churches Should:
    • Appoint qualified men as elders and deacons.
    • Preach the truth on all doctrinal and moral issues.
    • Discipline those caught up in immorality.
  • We can vote for Bible purity instead of partisan politics, Romans 13:1-5.
  • We can encourage our elected leaders to do what is right! Acts 24:25; Matthew 14:4.
  • We can Resolve to serve God regardless of the this-world consequences! Matthew 6:33; Titus 2:12; Revelation 2:10; 14:13.
  • It is possible to be “blameless and harmless, the sons of God without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation,” and even to “shine as lights in the world,” Philippians 2:15.
  • But people can not be “sons” or children of God in any society unless they render obedience to the saving gospel of Jesus Christ!
  • Are you a Christian?
  • Are you in a saved relationship with God?
