Supreme Court Ruling......

I have gone back and forth as to whether I wanted to blog about the recent ruling about same sex marriage. After much thought, I decided that decisions made by our government will have an impact on my family and choices that we make. I am not ashamed to admit that I am 100% against homosexuality and how our government is trying to redefine "marriage". 

I believe that the Supreme Court has grossly violated what marriage is ordained by God to be ~ one man and one woman!!!! Homosexuality is a sin and is unnatural and perverted. I ache for the world that my children are growing up in. I, as a Christian, believe the Bible to be absolute truth and cannot and should not be picked apart and rewritten to fit personal agendas. The Bible is NOT outdated and never will be. May God have mercy upon our nation.

n. noun 
  • 1. the legally or formally recognized union of a man and a woman 

A recent Grace Gems was so relevant regarding this Supreme Court decision.
"In the twenty-first century, we are obsessed with self-satisfaction and getting our desires met. Hence, any teaching that invades our lifestyle and tells us we must alter or discard out old habits, is usually consigned to the junk pile. In so thinking and doing, the church has been transformed into a spiritual playpen where the crying babies must be appeased with what makes them feel good.
The Evangelical world is abuzz with terms like "purpose driven church" or "seeker friendly church". What these terms really amount to is one thing: compromise. 
The goal of churches should not be to see how much like the world they can be, so as to make worldly people feel comfortable. Rather, the churches should be so unlike the world, so alien to the world, that the disillusioned unbeliever will be drawn to them."
"Do not be yoked together with unbelievers.
For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common?
Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
What harmony is there between Christ and Belial?
What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?
What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols?
For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people." "Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you." "I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty." 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

I find it so ironic that homosexuals use this as their symbol. God used the flood to purge out sin. According to scripture homosexuality is a sin. 
The first rainbow appeared as a covenant God made with mankind. 
In Genesis, a rainbow appears right after the worldwide flood brought in order to remove sinful and evil-minded man from the earth. It symbolized God's mercy and the covenant He made with Noah (representing mankind) not to destroy the world in such a way again.

Genesis 9:12, 15
12. And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living creature with you, for everlasting generations: 
13. I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth . . . and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 
Hebrews 13:4
Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.
Romans 1:26-28
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.
Mark 10:6-9
"But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.' 'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate."
Leviticus 18:22
Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.
I Corinthians 6:17-20But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit. Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
I Corinthians 6:9-11
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
The Bible is NOT outdated. It is the inspired word of the Lord. It is just as relevant today as it was 2000 years ago. It is not okay to redefine what the scriptures say. We cannot pick and choose what we want to belief and follow. We cannot take out of context scripture to fit our agendas. Our nation, and world is depraved and in desperate need of the Savior. All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. I pray that the eyes of the blind, the unbelieving, will seek and find the truth which can only be found in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 

In the end I am responsible, before the Lord, for myself, and others for themselves.
