My friends, America is increasingly acting as if there is no real God. Millions of young couples are simply “living together”—without benefit of marriage. Other millions are slowly going over to the dark side of human nature and getting into homosexuality—even “men marrying men”!
Now, Barack Obama, the current President of what used to be called the “greatest Christian nation in the world,” has said that he approves of homosexual “marriage”! Hundreds of super-liberal media people are jumping on the bandwagon and rushing forward to add their endorsement of so-called “gay marriage.”
But Billy Graham’s son, Franklin Graham, has said that Barack Obama has “shaken his fist at God” by supporting homosexual marriage! Hundreds of ministers and thousands of their parishioners are sincerely upset at this unprecedented presidential behavior. On the other hand, many liberal ministers try to explain that the Bible “simply isn’t clear” on this subject of homosexual “marriage”!
Not clear? The whole problem goes back to our abysmal ignorance of the Bible and our unwillingness to repent and to do what God clearly says in His inspired Word! Listen! Jesus Christ stated directly in Matthew 19:4-6: “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
So, right here Jesus Christ clearly stated that marriage is predicated on the fact that God made them “male and female”—and that it is God, not man or the laws of man, who joins a man and woman together as “one flesh” in marriage.
Jesus’ servant, the Apostle Paul, was inspired to tell us in the New Testament: “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). In the book of Romans, Paul wrote about the foolish philosophers and liberals of his day: “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting” (Romans 1:26-28).
Even in the New Testament, could the Bible not be more clear? Is there any doubt in anyone’s mind what the Holy Bible actually says about homosexuality and “men marrying men”?
In his last letter recorded in the Bible, the Apostle Peter was describing how God deals with rebellious cities and nations. He specifically described how God dealt with the homosexual cities, “turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly” (2 Peter 2:6). Unless we Americans wake up and repent, can we expect the God who gives us life and breath to bless us? Or will He chasten our peoples in a powerful way to get our attention just as He has often done in human history? The choice is ours!
