Marriage IS Under Attack
Marriage is upheld by a moral code found in the Bible, and to erode marriage in our society is to shake society at its foundation~MORALITY! Without morals, our society is destined for all sorts of destruction. It's a shame that today marriage isn't viewed by many favorably~as the institution God created. "You can't tell me (or others) WHO or HOW to love..." I can't? You are sooo right! I cannot, but God can! He's the ultimate authority in this world, and faithlessness will not leave a person innocent. What's that about "ignorance of the law is no excuse!" If we are ignorant or unbelieving and we fail to recognize God as Who He is, does not mean that we will avoid His righteous judgment for failing to live by His standards...we are accountable despite our ignorance!
For the record, sin is sin.....mine or anybody's...and all of us fall under His judgment. But God offers GRACE to us all~praise Him! I can be free of this awful penalty for my inability to be "perfect" and holy as HE IS holy...
The question of homosexual rights is being lauded as a civil rights issue. What? I suspect Dr. King might be a little upset, but I certainly can't speak for him. But if you look at his writings and life, did he even dream in his dreams that some 40 yrs later that his movement would serve such a purpose? I don't think...no..surely not! And what about homosexual rights to be civilly recognized in a ceremony that affirms the relationship and values it? If people want marriage then don't they need to meet the standards set by God since God set marriage UP? OK, so people WANT something for a special ceremony~pick on the religions that might be OK without a moral stand, that do not absolutely condemn homosexuality~any one will do,,,just leave God's business, the marriage vow and institution ALONE! But, noooooo...marriage is under attack!
I believe that marriage is God ordained for the institution of raising a family and is a covenant relationship between a man and a woman.
This summer, the National Organization for Marriage NOM is touring the nation hosting marriage rallies in support of maintaining traditional marriage and stopping gay marriage in the states.
About a year ago I had the opportunity to facebook get to know the Protect Marriage Site: One Man and One Woman's Louis Marinelli, who is the director and have helped write some for the site.
Here is the marriage rally schedule of stops around the nation so we can support this effort to support traditional marriage. You can join the facebook fanpage HERE!
