Gay Marriage–An Oxymoron, Biblically Speaking

The gay blogger was blasting the “bigots”–those who voted in California against legalizing gay marriage.  Hypocrites even, he said, especially blacks who voted 70% to 30% against.  “Now you are discriminating against another minority–gays,” he wrote.  He implied that the majority thought of gays as less than human.

This was my response to his rant: 

I agree wholeheartedly that gays are human beings–people with rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.   However, “holy matrimony” or marriage is a spiritual and physical joining together by God of a male and female.  These two become one and are the only two human beings that “God hath joined together” scripturally.  God has not changed His position on this.  He did say, “I am the same yesterday, today, and forever; I change not.”  

Marriage between male and female is a moral right granted by the Creator.  It was never granted to those of the same sex.  You are trying to forge gay marriage into a civil right, erroneously basing it as a moral or inalienable right.  “…That they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights…life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  According to the Declaration of Independence, it is the Creator that gives the moral or unalienable rights to mankind.  He gave “holy matrimony” to males and females.  Civil rights are manmade laws; a civil union, therefore, should be the route you should attempt at equality.  

For you see, this male/female spiritual union is in the internal genetic fabric of human society with roots going back thousands of years, planted there by a purposeful Creator.  That is the reason that “gay marriage” was rejected, first by the Creator and now by the people of CA and FL.  It doesn’t set well in the human heart and psyche because it never was part of the divine plan, according to the scriptures.  

To get extra legal rights that married couples have, gays should call it civil unions, etc. 

“Gay” and “marriage” is the ultimate oxymoron because of the Creator’s plan; they cannot go together.  Marriage is a spiritual thing that God does with males and females.

I do say this in love: the God of the Bible rejects homosexuality in the strongest of terms (See Genesis 19 and Romans 1: 26-27).  

But I do not condemn you; I just want to inform you as to the reasons you are running up against a brick wall, or rather, a Rock wall…Marriage is a spiritual thing, a religious institution in the eyes of God.  Calling your relationship a “marriage” is at the root of the problem many heterosexuals have with it. And most people still sense this though our national sins are separating us from Him more and more.  Biblically, God’s got His own thoughts about what marriage is.  We all are commanded to pray and seek His will in all matters, including holy matrimony.  KWH

    “He did say, “I am the same yesterday, today, and forever; I change not.” ”

    Leviticus 24:44-46: 44 ” ‘Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. 45 You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. 46 You can will them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life, but you must not rule over your fellow Israelites ruthlessly.

    Presumably, you are also a proponent of slavery.

    Scaryreasoner, that quote comes from Lev. 25. God doesn’t change but commands us to. In that era under the Mosaic Covenant He said, “you may.” But that covenant waxed old and fell away under the new covenant Christ brought in through His death, burial, and resurrection. Of course, hard-hearted men, moved by the love of money, continued in the slave trade throughout the centuries, but now we are ruled by the law of love for our fellow men. God allowed divorce, but in the beginning it was not so. God, likewise, allowed slavery for the hardness of men’s hearts, but in the beginning it was not so. Again, as I said in the piece, I haven’t a shred of condemnation in my heart toward gays. I am bound to speak the truth as I read it in scripture. And God’s condemnation of homosexual behavior is biblically supported by the apostle Paul, one of the main expounders of the new covenant. I have no problem with you or any gay and you shouldn’t have any with me, for I do not condemn you. I hate slavery, especially the slavery to sin, of which I was in bondage many years before my conversion(See “About” and “From Highway to Hell to Immortality Road). Take care. Wayneman

  3. Simply put – the Mormons have proved with their complete obsession with PROP 8 to be a Tax-Exempt Hate Group.

    Heterosexuals – You better wake up. Instead of pondering a cerebral concept like how gays want the “1,138 rights of marriage”, you need to educate yourselves about the CONSEQUENCES when one or more of those 1,138 rights are denied. GOOGLE “Freeheld” or “Tying the Knot”; watch the DVDs. Write it down now.

    Your laws HATE us, and we’ve had it! Yes, I did said HATE – I stand by it. Because how else can you explain these 3 realities?:

    A police woman loses her life in the line of duty; her wife of 13 years is denied all pension benefits.

    A rancher loses his husband of 22 years; his inlaws evict him and try to take the home he built and lived in with his beloved.

    A detective spends 25 years risking her own life while protecting society; she has to spend her remaining days on this earth worrying whether her earned pension will be transferred to her wife (while living with terminal cancer).

    YES, H-A-T-E. And your silence on this matter is a serious affront to our families’s safety and security. FAMILY – isn’t that a cherished concept in the U.S.A.?

    So now after decades of disinterest, some of us in the LGBTI community have AWAKENED. And we will refuse to pay one penny of income tax to the IRS until the government (i.e. – you) decide you WANT our tax dollars as EQUAL CITIZENS.

    This ain’t a vote.
    This ain’t a debate.
    This ain’t a popularity contest.

    You will PAY OUR TAXES until we have what your family ALREADY HAS; your apathy is costing you money as you read this.

    GAY TAX PROTEST!

    John, thank you for commenting. First, if you will reread this post you will see that I am not against gays obtaining the same legal rights as heterosexuals. We are all citizens of this great nation and should be treated equal under the law. The examples you cited of hate toward gays is shameful and an affront to the God of love. However, to equate all heterosexuals as HATERS of gays is an unproveable thesis. It simply is not true. This article outlines why there is a spiritual stumbling block to the acceptance of gay marriage. As I wrote in the article, marriage was instituted by the Creator for male and female. Following the path toward “civil unions” is the road to take. It is not just a question of semantics. It sounds like you just read the first paragraph of my post. I don’t hate you at all, nor do I condemn you. I am explaining from a biblical perspective why you are being resisted, however. Peace. KWH

    Just a couple of questions

    Are we all supposed to be equal in the eyes of the Lord ?
    How can this be when homosexuality is condemned?
    Does this make homosexuals evil ?
    Can what Paul said on homosexualtiy be taken as ‘law’ based on the society we live in now? Paul also said that Christian women should cover their heads, This is not implemented in Christian life.
    I’m not sure what biblical passage it was from but the ‘eating of shellfish’ was considered an “abomination” the same word that was used to describe homosexuality.

    I am keen to hear your thoughts as I have an essay on how relevant the bible is in making ethical descisions 🙂

  6. wayneman5

    Kay, some good questions. We are all equal–equal in that we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God. Equal in that He commands us all to repent of our sins. For He condems not only homosexuality, but also “adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and the such like…that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God” (Galatians 5: 19-21). These are the works of the flesh, the carnal sinful nature. This old heart of man must die on the cross with Christ (Romans 6: 1-6). Homosexuality is evil as are the other works of the flesh.

    The moral law of the universe is not dictated by society; it is set by the Creator. Just because a society accepts pedophilia as in ancient Greece–that does not make it acceptable in the sight of God.

    What is sorely lacking in your questions and in your position is a belief in the sovereignty of God. If there is no God with a definite plan and purpose and way of doing things, then one can move to a society or change a society into one that accepts their particular standards. But if you believe in the God of the Bible, certain moral standards are set in place. The scripture of truth states, “God is not mocked; whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” If He said, Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth…if He rained down fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gomarrah for the sinful acts done there, acts so heinous to His nostrils that the noun sodomy survives to this day as a reminder…then surely this must give one pause. This should be a wake up call as to behavior.

    The question becomes this: Are we His servants or servants of our own desires and imaginations? We cannot serve both. KWH

    wayneman asks…are we his servants or of our own desires and imaginations?
    Personally speaking to that question…a question that each of us has to go to His Word and let Jesus tell us…who are we serving? If we will not go there for the answers, we who will not are described in John 3:19 – 21.
    wayneman…those imaginations can become to many who serve them…what they believe to be, “pleasing to God.”

    In other words, they believe in God, they believe they are serving God. But this belief in what they believe has not been the result of “faith in His Word but from things they have seen, read and heard and from these they have concluded these are ways that please God.
    They are also quite satisfied with their life and these “imaginations” have literally become Gods directives of right and wrong…and thus there is no longing for God.
    However, I personally believe they have not yet rejected His Word as the truth, nor Jesus as His Only begotten Son, nor have they abandoned a belief that there is truth.
    The problem is this…is what they have embraced as truth…what they have come to believe to be acceptable and pleasing to God…all of this without having gone to His Word for the answers they have…and if they were to do this…believing His Word to be just that…God will do the rest…the outcome?
    All that they have allowed into their heart, including all that really is not based on things known by mortal man to be true, that they have embraced as true…( e.g. “the earth is flat”) or anything that is known about our physical world that they have embraced as true that is not scientifically factual…all this will be called into question as will his motives for why he says what he says…
    That is what Gods Word will now do…with those desires and imaginations…and I cannot thank God enough that he made it possible for me to be able to believe and want to go to His Word…as is pointed out to us in John 3:21…but he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God. Thank you wayneman
