New York State claimed they sent a message to the nation last week by giving same sex couples the right to marry. And I must say, they most certainly did send a message and that message in reality was, “we don’t care what the word of God said about marriage, we are going to make marriage whatever we want.” Also the actor Brad Pitt, made a statement this week, saying “one should have the right to marry whoever they love”.
Now, let me say this; God said, “whatever He has joined together, let not man put asunder” (Matthew 19:4-6). If we are going to quote that statement, we need to observe all that the Lord has revealed to us in the context. Matthew 19:4 tells us that God made male and female in the beginning (Genesis 1:27-28, 2:18-25). Matthew 19:5 tells us when males and females are ready for marriage; they leave parents and become joined by God in marriage (Matt. 19:6; 1 Corinthians 7:2).
God joins the opposite sexes in marriage because that is what He ordained (Proverbs 18:22, 19:14). So the big question is, “Why didn’t New York State and Brad Pitt listen to what the the Creator of marriage said?” I’ll tell you why—they aren’t concerned about what God said (Judges 21:25).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
