Well, the issue of two sodomites getting together and calling it marriage is confronting all of us in the face again. Those of the Sodom and Gomorrah lifestyle are almost evangelistic in pushing for the misnomer they call same-sex “marriage”.
In rural New South Wales, Australia “A Dubbo businesswoman and marriage equality advocate has accused the federal government of avoiding action on same-sex marriage, following reports a plebiscite on the issue may be delayed until 2017.”
This annoyed “Local Coffee Co owner Karen Payne, who opposes a plebiscite and subsequent costs, has criticised the delay.
‘The consensus is that marriage equality would pass through the upper and lower house if it went to a vote today,’ Ms Payne said.”
Ms. Payne “…suggested it could take a strike to prompt the politicians into action.”
She told the newspaper, “I sometimes wonder what would happen if all LGBTI people decided to go on strike until the marriage equality issue was resolved,”. http://www.dailyliberal.com.au/story/4113247/mps-do-your-job-payne/?cs=112 I hate to shock Ms. Payne but I think the world would go on in spite of the strike.
Now, of course I don’t for one minute think quoting the Bible to Ms. Payne or others in agreement with her on this sodomite issue will change anything but here goes. Genesis 2:20-24 “And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. 21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”
The Lord Jesus said in Mathew 19:4-6 “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? 6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
Then Romans 1:22-27 tells us that “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.” Pretty clear, I think!
Then there is 1Corinthians 6:9, 10 “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, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”
I relinquished my government approved religious celebrant’s license several years ago because I knew there would come a time when the government of the day would sanction two sodomites getting together and calling it “marriage”. However, God settled the issue in the beginning of time and no matter what a government or a nation decides I “ought to obey God rather than men.”
