God created the woman to be a helpmate for the man. He created her from one of his ribs. Afterwards he commanded them to be fruitful and multiply. It is not possible for a woman married to a woman or a man married to a man to be fruitful and multiple. After Noah and the occupants got off the ark, God issued a similar command. Yes, these examples are from the Old Testament. However, Jesus quotes from the Old Testament when he says, “Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them Male and Female, and said, ‘For this cause shall a man leave his mother and father and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?’” Jesus was quoting from Genesis 2:24. Because of this, it is unreasonable for anyone to say gay marriage is acceptable based on Jesus’ teachings. He clearly taught that marriage is between a man and a woman.
Yes, Jesus taught us to love are neighbors; however, he did not teach us to stand by while they openly commit sin. Even Jesus got angry and refused to allow sin to go on in temple. Therefore, let us follow his example. Let us stand up and boldly say, “Gay marriage is wrong. We will not allow it to become legal in this country”. We can say that loud and clear by going to the polls every time the issue comes up. In addition, we can say that loud and clear by writing to our congressional representatives. Let them know that you are the ones voting and you will not re-elect them.
Let us all remember that God loves the world. That includes those who practice homosexual behavior. We are to love them and lovingly try to explain to them that they need to repent for their sins. Even though God loves them, they will not enter heaven until they have given their life to Jesus. Jesus said to teach. Teaching does not include hate or violence.
According to christianity.about.com/od/denominations/p/christiantoday.htm, about 75% of the adults in America identify themselves as Christians. That is over half. Therefore, in order to prevent gay marriage from becoming legal we simple most write letters and vote every chance we get. It should be that difficult to prevent if we all work together. Remember in America the majority wins.
