Sunday Go To Meeting Bun

Mark 10: 7 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
Peggy and I drove about 3.5 hours yesterday to attend the wedding of Ryan Johnston. Ryan is the same age as our daughter Sarah and we have known him since the day he was born, literally. Marissa, his wife of less than 24 hours, is a beautiful woman with long dark hair and a smile that lights up the room! What a celebration it was and it fulfilled the ancient Biblical mandate that a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife. I lost it when they took communion. The Lord was present in that moment, as they honored the creator of the universe by taking the elements together, breaking the bread, which is represented as the body of Jesus, bruised and beaten for us – by His stripes we are healed. Then they took the cup, in remembrance of the blood of Jesus shed on Calvary – which is the game changer and announced checkmate to the Fallen One. Jesus is at the center of their marriage and I believe it will be a good one filled with the Joy of the Lord and His peace.
Now I must address what I believe is a perversion of the scripture above. Gay marriage is a slippery slope and here’s why. What if someone falls in love with their dog and wants to marry it? They will then cite they are being discriminated against if they are not allowed to marry. Bill O’Reilly cites marrying the McGuire sisters. What if a man wants to marry all three sisters? He will cite discrimination if he’s not allowed to do so.
Marriage is, in my opinion, a biblically ordained mandate. It is the basis of all civilizations and forms the foundation of society. To change it by allowing gays to marry is an assault to what has been the mainstay of Judeo/Christian thought for centuries. I would go so far as calling it an abomination. Now, I’m sure if this post gets picked up I will be quoted on the first paragraph, but there’s more to this.
Why is it that approximately 2 to 4% of the population, who are gay, are dictating and changing the fabric of what most Americans believe is sacrosanct? Why is it that the majority have to somehow change our paradigm and world view to embrace that of a few? Should we then allow pedophilia? What about bestiality? Should we allow NAMBLA, which promotes men having sex with young boys who are underage, to become legalized?
In closing todays Bun: I know this is a hot button issue, and I’m sticking my neck out by addressing this. However, in my world view, marriage was instituted by a Holy God. He knows what is best for his creation and his laws are good. Gay’s should be entitled to legal partnerships, but I stand firm on the marriage issue. It is between one man and one woman. What we seeing, in my view, is the fulfillment of prophecy that tells us in the last days, times and seasons would be changed, that right will be called wrong, and wrong right. I’m sure there are those who will read this and accuse me of hate speech. Nothing could be further from the truth. I know many people who are gay and interact with them as I would anyone else. However, I hold the line at marriage, as it is bulwark of our civilization and to change this in any way, alters the very fabric of our society, which was founded on Judeo/Christian principles.
