Marriage is between one man and one woman. That’s God’s plan. That’s God’s will.
Marriage isn’t a political agenda. It is a Biblical plan.
Genesis 2:24 says: Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
The word wife is a feminine word meaning “woman”!
Deuteronomy 24:1 says: When a man hath taken a wife, and married her…
Genesis 12:5a says: And Abram took Sarai his wife
Genesis 24:3 says: And I will make thee swear by the LORD, the God of heaven, and the God of the earth, that thou shalt not take a wife unto my son of the daughters of the Canaanites, among whom I dwell…
Exodus 4:20 says: And Moses took his wife [feminine; woman]
Read God’s Word. There was Boaz and Ruth, Elimelech and Naomi, Elkanah and Hannah, David and Bathsheba, Ahab and Jezebel, Ahasuerus and Esther, Joshua and his wife, Lot and his wife, Hosea and his wife, Peter and his wife and the list goes on and on; but never do you find an Adam and Steve. It’s always Adam and Eve--man and woman in the marriage relationship.
We also read in Leviticus 20:13a that: If a man also lie with mankind (Hebrew word for male), as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination…
I Corinthians 6:9 says: Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind…
The word abusers means “sodomite” or “men who lie with men.”
You see, it really doesn’t matter what you say or what I say, it really doesn’t matter what the President says. God has spoken and as Paul said in Romans 3:4b: …let God be true and every man a liar.
What to do:
✞ Let God be true and every man a liar.
