Good for the pastors who took a stand for the Biblical definition of marriage…it is wonderful that they spoke up and took their stand.
While Obama has endorsed “same sex” marriage in attempt to pull that vote into his camp, what he didn’t realize is that many of his former supporters are Bible believers in the God’s definition of marriage as laid out in Genesis, which was a union between Adam and Eve, one man and one woman.
They likened it to Judas’s betrayal of Jesus in the Bible for thirty pieces of silver. Furthermore (quote):
“For activists, politicians and now the highest office in the nation to link sexual behavior God calls sin to the righteous cause Martin Luther King gave his life for is abominable in and of itself. There is no civil right to do what God calls wrong.”
That statement really hits the nail on the head when it comes to any position contrary to God’s laws. While we have freedom of religion, to attempt to legislate into existence what God already defines as sin or evil, is to bring judgment on the nation. “Woe unto them who call evil good, and good evil.”
The Founding Fathers envisioned a nation where people were free to do the right thing…righteousness, as defined in the Bible. They were free to worship God without being persecuted, to prosper and enjoy the fruits of their labor without government or neighbors stealing it, they were free to abide in peace in their homes without searches and seizures, they were free to speak without fear of being imprisoned, and so forth. Being Christians and God-fearing men, they did not envision a nation where freedom and liberty meant progressively making a way for people to live in sin contrary to God’s laws. The point of freedom was to progressively seek righteousness, not progressively become more sinful.
Jesus said he came to give life, and that more abundant. That meant liberty to work and prosper, liberty to be healthy without the government defining that health, liberty to have a family without the government taking charge of the children’s education and teaching things contrary to the laws of God. Jesus never put government into the equation at all. It was between man and God, between man and God’s word, between man and his Savior.
