I am not here to state who is going to hell or who is righteous or not. I am here to ask this question: why are homosexuals so bent on calling what they want "marriage"? First, from its origin, marriage does not reflect the model that the homosexual community is presenting----the same gender being joined as life partners. Second, the concept of "marriage" is a biblical endeavor whose standard is set with the first man and woman. “Marriage” is to join separate and complimenting components merging, bonding or blending them. How can joining two separates that are the same represent a complimenting circumstance? To say testosterone can compliment testosterone is to say a lamp compliments a lamp rather than a bulb being the complimenting factor. Just as attempting to join two separate north poles from two separate magnets represents conflict and an anti-marital environment by nature of their structural content so does the concept and attempt to create “Same Sex Marriage”.
Marriage is meant to reflect the relationship between GOD and his creation; displaying the love, provision and interaction that He communicates along with man's role as expected to show gratitude as well as reciprocating love and interaction is only part of what's to be mirrored. Also, in a marriage, commonly, it is rightfully assumed that a couple will reproduce or "procreate" which furthers this reflection of the marriage mirroring GOD's dealings with man whereas GOD "creates". Even in a case where a man and a woman are joined and cannot (whether the problem lies in the man or the woman physically) procreate it at least has the appearance of the possibility of procreation.
The pretentious petition for “same sex marriage” is an attempt to make a mockery of faith and of its essence is to Edge God Out! Marriage holds for mankind a reminder that GOD is a Great Creator, in fact, the Creator of all things. Every time a child is born it is a reminder of the awesomeness of creation. Life is first in the man delivered to the woman for her to carry for a hopeful 9 months. This is why we call GOD a “He”, not because He has gender in His Spirit form but because He “is the first cause of a thing”. A homosexual couple cannot represent this possibility which is why it would be redefining “marriage” to ultimately become something that is not Marriage at all.
It is evident to me that the attempt of the homosexual community is indeed pretentious. I firmly believe that those for “same sex marriage” have set out to “DESTIGMATIZE” homosexuality and are on a quest to normalize its lifestyle. In doing this they are doing to others what they don’t appreciate having done to them; they are disregarding the faith, convictions and a wholesome societal paradigm for a selfish behavioral cause AS homosexuality is a BEHAVIOR and not an ETHNICITY. Though I am not for same sex unions at all, I ask, why not call it something else if these attempts to legalize such unions have no ulterior motives?

Please share with anyone that argues what GOD says about marriage.

If a person has the outward appearance of a woman and has a penis then what category would you put them in. I'll call myself ignorant if I'm mistaken (so you won't have to), but I thought someone who distinctly appears to be a woman but has a "penis" actually was born with psuedo-hermaphroditism, and that her sex organ was an inverted clitoris. I remember hearing that condition is caused by fetal overexposure to testosterone, and is often treated with corrective surgery. Such a person is not a homosexual because she has a "penis" and is attracted to men... she is a heterosexual woman with a birth defect.
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't "true" hermaphroditism mean the person has both male and female sex organs? Such intersex individuals are usually androgynous in appearance, so I assume sex assignment would be according to their functional sex organ (for example, whether the urethra is attached to the penis or the vagina). I dispute any notion that true hermaphroditism is evidence of a third sex (and as best I can determine from perusing the internet, for now biologists agree with me).
I do not see how Romans address physical abnormalities or sexual disparities. As I wrote before, Romans 8 describes how a decaying and diseased earth is waiting for the redemption and restoration of Jesus' Second Coming. By his power, Jesus will free all of creation from its "slavery to corruption" (entropy), which is the root of sickness and disease. Believers on the Lord Jesus, in particular, will receive glorified bodies, untouched by sickness or disorder. It is a scripture of hope.
I also see where you proposed the concept of Adamic sin. Did not CHrist wipe away this sin? Scripture does say that Adam's sin resulted in "condemnation to all men," and that in like manner Christ's righteousness extended "justification of life to all men" [Rom. 5:18]. So yes, Christ did wipe away that sin. However, the final and complete reversal of the Adamic curse--the defeat of entropy and the glorification of our bodies--is yet to be manifested: "For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ's at His coming..." [1 Cor. 15:22,23].
Brother, this is a sad day.
The world is doing what the world needs to do, but the church is to have NOTHING to do with this wickedness.
I dont care HOW MAIN STREAM it becomes.
This is filth.
Its of the devil and the saints of God must stay away from such kookiness.
"Newview", Romans 1:18-32 is a New Testament scripture for the Church age and Church that deals explicitly with the orientation decribed in my Discussion. Sodom and Gomorrah is another clear reference in scripture that says these things DO concern the Living G-D. The LORD JESUS did not only heal and deliver in HIS Earthly ministry but also told those who came in contact with HIM to go and SIN no more.
The more those who believe in JESUS CHRIST remain in obscurity on issues of unrighteousness the more acclimated we all become to its presence and the more normal unrighteousness seems. This is why more and more sexual orientation is a open festival in schools among our young people b/c these images bombard the media and no one successfully illustrates what G-D wants. The sad truth is, local assemblies have been hijacked and ran the way people feel fits best according to their club by-laws avoiding resemblance to the WORD of G-D yet desiring to appeal to the concept that they are "Believers".
Is this the sad day you're referring to? Just wondering.
My question to you is WHEN is the church going to start practicing what they preach?!
If homosexuality is wrong why do you continue to ordain homosexuals to preach?!
If homosexuality is wrong why do you continue to put them over your choirs, play your music and hold position in the church?!
From what the Bible tells me you are supposed to SHOW ME not tell me.
So, can I get these questions answered?!
I'm getting real tired of all you church folk are "righteous judgment" however when it all boils down to it you and those like you are hypocritical and pick and choose what you will and won't agree with.
Very good point MarQ. On this I am in total agreement with you and it is a discussion that I take up in my book which you can find information about on my page here. I don't agree with a person who is a practicing homosexual, adulterer, extortioner, liar, brawler or any such thing that the scripture is in conflict with conducting aspects of the local church assembly's infrastructure. I believe, as stated in I Peter 4:17, that judgement must begin in the house of G-D. Yes! I totally agree! The reason the church is not as effective as it should be is because the church, as a whole, doesn't believe what they are trying to get the world to commit to- this all is the premise of my book.
Unfortunately, I have no control over what goes on in someone else's house so I cannot actually control what I see of which I disagree with I can only put it in print in a concise and, hopefully, objective way constructively handling it looking for a remedy.
For those who promote homosexuality or any other spiritual infraction without repentance will be judged by G-D as so says HIS word:
To the Romans 1:24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
To the Romans 1:25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
2nd Epistle to the Thessalonians 2:11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2nd Epistle to the Thessalonians 2:12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
The Revelation of the Apostle John 22:18For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
The Revelation of the Apostle John 22:19And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
Thank you for what you posted but this doesn't answer my question.
If homosexuality is wrong then why aren't YOU and other preachers who are so against it standing up and PROVING this by your actions?
What preachers do you listen to?
What singers do you listen to?
Let's see if we can get some truth flowing through here.
We'll see where your belie system is.
Oh, and in checking out your page I see you listen to Richard Smallwood.
What does your "spirit" tell you about him?
If you are against homosexuality he wouldn't be leading you into worship.
