Letter | If you believe in God and the Bible, gay marriage debate is over

In response to all the promoters of gay marriage:

In response to all the promoters of gay marriage:

Let us assume for a minute that you believe that there is a God. Let us also assume that you believe the Bible is his instruction manual to mankind. With this assumption comes the recognition that he makes the rules. God decides what sin is. Man’s logic and rationalization does not change this fact. If you believe this, then I would give special attention to the last verse of Romans 1. Romans 1: 32: “who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”

These are not the rantings of some right wing preacher or bigot or homophobe. This is a direct statement by God. The statement does not vary if you are talking about someone you don’t know, a friend, or even your grandchild. God is unchanging, the rules are for all time.

You can make all the comparisons with other laws that you want. You can quote statistics that say more people in the U.S. approve of this. (Romans 1: 22 “Professing to be wise, they became fools.”) It doesn’t change God’s opinion. In fact, if you take that stance, it substantiates the Bible’s predictions. “As it was in the days of Noah…”

If you do not believe in God, or you believe that the above is not his unchanging ruling on the subject, then shoot up some junk and go for it. Nothing I have said can affect your destiny.
