If you are a Christian then you don’t Support Gay Marriage – and Here’s Why

June 27, 2015

gay flag (1)

I have watched this issue of gay marriage unfold, not just over the past few days, but over years. I have studied scripture, but more importantly, I have prayed about it. The more I pray and study, the more convinced I am that this is very contrary to God’s will and grieves Him to see His people going in this direction – and so many who profess to follow Him supporting something that is definitely NOT of God.

If you are a Christian, then you do not support Gay marriage. There are several reasons why and I am certain that, except for the rock solid, sincere Christians who truly want to live for God, at least one of these will offend you. I do not apologize. I will never apologize for following the prompting of the Holy Spirit which is exactly what I am doing.

This legalization of gay “marriage” is just another step toward not just a Godless nation, but another step toward the decline and destruction of our nation.

1.  Throughout history every nation that has fallen has experienced an uprising and promotion of homosexuality prior to the fall. It is the spirit of perversion, plain and simple – and it is devastating to a nation. When we look throughout history at nations that have fallen, the rise, promotion, and acceptance of homosexuality was a precursor every time. This Supreme Court decision is just one more step in the direction of living in the times of Noah – in complete and utter Godlessness – right before God flooded the earth, destroying it and the people on it. As a nation we are headed for a fall.

Some people ask why did we (Christians) “choose” this cause to be upset about, doesn’t the Bible teach about other sins? Why are we up in arms about them?

Well, if you have been paying attention, we have been. People were upset and railed against divorce, they were upset and railed against the legalization of alcohol (the Bible speaks against it). People were extremely upset about the murder of innocent lives from abortion, yet it is not legal – but still we fight.

You see, though, our morality is slipping bit by bit. Each time a portion has been destroyed people did get upset about it but this is really the first instance where we have had the internet to make the response and protest much more public. Yes, we have internet now to rail against these things, like abortion, but this is the first time such a significant decision has been handed down and the internet has seen us through it all. When Row v. Wade was handed down there was no internet. Just because you have not see the fight does not mean it isn’t happening.

2.  The Bible has a LOT to say on the subject of homosexuality. This is an abbreviated study guide with scriptural citations.

Genesis 19:1-13 – God destroyed Sodom because of the SIN of homosexuality.

Leviticus 18:22 – The SIN of homosexuality is an ABOMINATION unto God making it more than “just” a sin. It is worse. It makes God sick; he hates it and disgusted by it (which is what abomination means).

Leviticus 20:13 – Those who commit the SIN of homosexuality which is an ABOMINATION unto God will die in their SIN (unless they REPENT and seek deliverance – but they have to want to turn away from it).

Romans 1:26-27 – God turned his back on those who continued in the SIN of homosexuality.

1 Corinthians 6:9 – Those who practice the SIN of homosexuality are UNRIGHTEOUS in God’s eyes and will not inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Timothy 1:10 – Homosexuality is CONTRARY to sound doctrine.

1 Corinthians 7:2 – Each man should have his own WIFE and each wife should have her own HUSBAND – marriage is between a MAN and a WOMAN.

Jude 1:7 – Those who commit the SIN of homosexuality and do not repent will be punished in the eternal fire.

Mark 10:6-9 – God made MALE and FEMALE and when they marry they become one flesh – marriage is between a MAN and a WOMAN.

Still, there are pastors who teach tolerance and acceptance of the sin. True, we are called to love the sinner, the person, the SOUL and to be a witness to them. But the scripture also says that we are to hate sin.

These pastors are wrong to teach such unsound doctrine. They are leading their congregations into the world instead of toward God; but I suppose they know this. Somewhere deep inside, if they ever try to touch God at all, they know.

Those who live in such blatant iniquity are usually fully aware but choose to remain in rebellion. The Word of God is irrefutable and timeless. You cannot serve two masters, either you love God and live for Him or you serve the god of this world and give in to carnality and wickedness. The Bible warns the saints of people like that. We are to avoid them.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 2 Timothy 4:3

I don’t want my ears tickled. I want TRUTH! I want God’s truth no matter how difficult it may be. We have been called out of the world to be separate and apart. We are not supposed to be of the world. Jesus said that.

So where do we go from here? Fortunately, Praise God, His Word gives clear direction on how we are to proceed.

Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. Acts 5:29

For the sake of your own eternal soul you need to wake up! If you are teaching these lies that are contrary to scripture, stop.

If you are being taught these lies that are contrary to scripture, find someone who loves you enough to tell you the truth, to reveal the truth of scripture to you, to tell you about the Holy Ghost and how your eyes will be opened if you will just repent of your sins then submit to Him and allow yourself to be filled. This is the first step in salvation.

If you are going to represent yourself as a Christian then you must follow scripture. What is happening in our country today is contrary to scripture and very dangerous. This is placing many people at a crossroads: do they follow God or follow the world? You too may be in the throes of that decision.

I teach truth! My door is always open and I have several ways that I can be contacted. If you earnestly want to know truth, to understand more about this, about living for God, or even who Jesus is, I am happy to help you any way that I can. Know, though, I don’t teach just to teach. I teach to raise up disciples for we are all called to a royal priesthood when we separate from the world. I teach to prepare you to go out and lead others to Christ. Once you have the truth you have a responsibility to be a witness and always be ready to share that truth with others.

Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:19

So, do I hate homosexuals? Absolutely not! I hate the sin but love the souls. I live my life according to scripture – there is no higher law. Therefore, I love what Jesus loves and hate what Jesus hates. That is what happens when you live for Him.

And I am opposed to this gay lifestyle and its promotion in our society. I am opposed to the sin and the serious, detrimental impact it has on these individuals’ eternal souls. I am opposed to the sin and the serious, detrimental repercussions that it will have on our society.

So, can these people be saved, delivered from their sin? They sure can, anyone can. If they repent (true repentance with sincerity and a real intention of going forth and sinning no more) and are baptized by immersion in water in the Holy name of Jesus Christ for the remission of their sins (His blood will wash away the sin and erase it from their history). The Bible says that at that time they will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. And as long as they stay submitted to God and strive to do His will, have a desire for His will in their lives, the Holy Spirit will guide them and provide ever deeper understanding of their walk with Christ.

Praying that every person who reads this will come to know Christ on a deeper level and gain a greater understanding of His truth.
God Bless You.

    This is a good argument for atheism. Only religious people can be so bigoted. This is no different from Shiites hating Sunnis and Protestants hating Catholics. Also I note no examples of any nation falling due to homosexuality.

    • Well, first, you should go back and reread the section on the fall of nations. Nowhere did I say that homosexuality CAUSED the fall. It was a marker, a characteristic of a nation that is on its way down.
      If you don’t understand something that is written, it is best to reread or ask questions as opposed to immediately defaulting to personal attacks and taking comments out of context.
      I am confused how, in the last two paragraphs I discuss my love for the souls and how that can be construed as bigoted. I do not accept sin, will never accept it as normal or natural. If the Word of God says it is wrong then it is wrong.
      And the dangerous doors that this horrendous decision opens will be the downfall of our nation.
      Keep in mind. If the government can take away the rights of Bible believing Christians they can certainly take away anyone else’s just as easily – including yours.
      The Bible is the Word of God and that is what Christians stand on. We follow the Word as closely as we can.
      I did not write the scripture posted; that came directly from the Word of God.
      I did not offend you, scripture did – but there is no higher law.

      • http://biblehub.com/ezekiel/16-49.htm

        Ezekiel 16:49
        ‘Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.

        Hmmm. I guess the USA is the new Sodom, just not for the reasons the Republicans would have us believe.

      She wrote what she wrote in love. And she never spoke of hating a soul. Did you even read? Or you’re just so quick to pick a fight with anyone that go against What you stand for? You’re entitled to your belief as much as she is of hers. Let’s not be one sided in this “tolerance” thing you’re preaching!

      • Very well said. Thank you.
        I am prayerful about this situation but mostly for the souls involved. So many are blinded by the world, by this empty desire for acceptance, by the lusts of the flesh that they can’t see the promise of the Kingdom.
        Scales will be removed, I am confident! This will not be in vain.
        I fully believe that God will turn this for His good and there will be many coming to Him in the wake of this.

    I read this the other day, took some time to digest it, then reread it and posted it to my timeline on Facebook.
    This is so true and so many people are blinded to the serious consequences of their sinful actions.
    I can only imagine what kind of response you are getting but I just wanted to tell you to stand strong because you are speaking truth.
    Jesus said that the world would hate you when you stood for Him.
    There’s no better place I’d want to be though.
    God bless you sister.

    • Thank you.
      The world does seem to be hating me right now. LOL
      But Christians are also speaking out in support as well.
      I just have to follow God. I can’t listen to man. Jesus is the one who saved me, not man.

  3. This is exceptional! So true! Every Christian needs to read this.
    You brought up some things I had not considered and did not know. I learned something today.
    AWESOME!

    • Thank you for your kind words and support.
      It is so important for Christians to know what the Bible has to say on issues. So many listen to the world, blindly accepting whatever is fed to them.
      We are supposed to stand on the Word of God for He is the final authority.

  4. May God richly bless you for your stand on his truth, sister! I just wish that more people could understand that the bounderies which the Lord has set for us in every area of life, including marriage (ie., one man for one woman for life) are not to oppress us, but rather to protect us from our own sinful natures, and to bring us into harmony with his will, so that he can bless us. God IS love (1John 4:8 ” He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love”) , but God’s primary attribute is Holiness ( 1 Peter 1:15-16..”be ye holy; for I am holy). Therefore as long as our sin is standing between us and God, he cannot bless us the way he would like to. In fact, the bible makes it clear that in our natural sinful condition we are enemies of God, and yet even though we were his enemies, he loved us so much that he sent his only begotten Son to this sinful world to die in our place. The Lord Jesus Christ willingly suffered the penalty of our sins for us so that God the Father could reconcile us to himself and make us part of his family and his kingdom. What a wonderful gift! but a gift is of no benefit until it is received. So I say to all who read this…Jesus Christ is that gift of eternal life. Would you not turn from the sins that put him on the cross in your place, and receive him into your heart and life today? “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” John 1:12 “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house” Acts 16:31 Thanks again, mrs mayberry, for your dedication to God and his Word! P.S. Just in case you were wondering, I repented of MY sins, and received the Lord Jesus as my savior on Jan.11, 2000. The greatest gift I ever received!!! God Bless!

    The “word of god” was written by man. Nobody can say that they know these people who wrote any biblical text weren’t lieing. This is where not only religion but also history falls apart. Humans lie. All the time.
    Your religion states, explicitly, you should kill all gay people. It also says you shouldn’t murder. What if you don’t know? Kill them anyway and just hope they were gay? What if they’re gay but have never slept with another man? You didn’t kill them so I guess you’re gonna go to hell?
    You say you don’t acccept sin eh? If I remember correctly it’s about 82% of your stuff you bought to satisfy your own greed. Including whatever you used to type out these article. Whatever it is you didn’t need it. When you’re relaxing doing nothing, watching TV and the like? Laze, that’s a sin. When you go out to eat? Most places serve at least 3 servings of food in a single meal. You get the picture? If your god exists, and i’m not saying he doesn’t, he probably wouldn’t care about any of this. He’s god right? If he cared you’d think he would have already done something. But that’s the thing, you don’t know. Nobody does. You can’t tell somebody they can’t do something because you don’t want them to. It’s like going up to a busy hotdog stand and saying “stop making hotdogs because I’m a vegan”
    Oh and one more thing. If the gov’t doesn’t recogognize something as religious they can do whatever they want to it. Our gov’t sees mariage as the LEGAL binding of two citizens. Not the relgious binding. You might argue “Seperation of church and state” but remember that other thing, oh I can’t remember, hmm oh yeah. One of the reason for America’s existance, “Freedom of Religion” This means that you are free to think however you want in a religous way. This does not give you any rights over any other individuals in any way shape or form as they also have their Freedom of Religion right. Do you know of Tomas Jefferson? “No man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religous worship…nor shall be enforced…in his body or goods…nor shall otherwise suffer, on account of his religious opinions or belief…” This includes non-religous people of course.
    In other words, the “Word of God” means nothing here. The words of a million men will always be greater than the words of a mear god.
    The fact that you think gay people will be the downfall of America is laughable. That is unless Chris Christie is gay, and he sure does seem to hate women.

    This is so true. I have been accused of wanting all gays to be killed when nothing in the posts have said anything to that nature. All I want is for them to come to repentance. I personally have family members that are living this lifestyle. I love them, and would love to see them come to the truth.Just because I don’t agree with the life style doesn’t mean I hate them.
    This isn’t something new, I didn’t agree with homosexuality since before I came to the truth, but now that is what they try to say, that it’s my religion. That has nothing to do with this. I knew from a young age that, that life style was not of God. He created us of his own image, he doesn’t make mistakes. He created men and women. Not a mix of the two. Let the truth be told this is a bad spirit, whether you like it or not. There is still time to repent, put it in the Lords hands he will guide you to a newness. Your sins will be made white as snow. Wished away, and he will turn away from them, never to look upon them again.

    I didn’t have to reread Mrs. Mayberry post, I think she did a great job by presenting herself with scriptures. Continue to do the work of God and your reward will be in heaven in Jesus name.
