For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
Genesis 2:24 (NIV)
“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
Matthew 19:4-6 (NIV)
Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?”
Hebrews 13:4-7 (NIV)
Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
Ephesians 5:22-28 (NIV)
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it."
Matthew 7:13-14 (NIV)
LGBT, Homosexuality & Related Issues
(12/28/2016) Pennsylvania Court Rules that Man Can Marry His Son. This involves an adopted son. Remember when there was no "slippery slope?" Remember when civil unions were all that was being demanded? This is probably financially motived, at least in part.
(12/20/2016) Gay Activist 'Not Ready to Make Nice' with Trump Voters. I doubt he has ever been ready to "make nice" with anyone who opposes the gay agenda, so why should this be a surprise? But I will point out that while Obama referred to "bitter clingers," it seems to be primarily people on the left who are displaying a lot of bitterness.
(12/19/2016) Microsoft And NatGeo Push LGBT And Other Leftist Propaganda For Christmas. Sigh.
(12/13/2016) LGBT Studies Fabricated for Politically Correct Outcomes. It is sad that something we used to have confidence in - "science" - is now working feverishly to discredit itself. This dates back some time - cancer scares come to mind. Ask yourself, if you were a progressive in the social sciences, would you ever publish a study that discredits something you firmly believe in? The same could be said for a conservative, except there are virtually no conservatives in the social sciences.
(12/10/2016) Massive Pro-Family ‘Cape Town Declaration’ Defies LGBT Culture. There are quite a few who are willing to stand up for what is right and we should make sure that they are not standing alone. Wear the "deplorable" label with pride, and reach out LGBT people, people who genuinely need help rather than affirmation that their trip on the path to destruction is the way to go.
(12/08/2016) Arizona Artists Face Jail Time for Refusing to Make Gay Wedding Invitations. The epidemic of Christians being punished for their beliefs has not ended. I hope that Donald Trump realizes that this is the biggest reason that evangelicals voted for him overwhelmingly.
(12/01/2016) BuzzFeed Wants To Destroy Chip And Joanna Gaines For Being Christian And Wildly Popular. Not surprising. Update: Here is more - Chip and Joanna's Church is Against Same-Sex Marriage. So What?
(11/13/2016) Christians Denied Adoption Because of Their Views on Homosexuality. This is in the UK, but this is exactly how the "tolerant" Left makes others toe the line. I almost laugh out loud when I hear someone going on about how the religious right is trying to impose their values on others.
(11/10/2016) US Military Preps Transgender Army For Prolonged War On God. Our military should be focused 100% on military readiness and capability, 0% on social engineering. Maybe a Trump administration can help the military re-focus.
(11/06/2016) An Open Letter to Brandon and Jen Hatmaker on Homosexuality and the Bible. Definitely an important article to read. We should always be concerned when people "discover" that the Bible says something other than what everyone thought for 1900 years or more.
(10/29/2016) 200,000 Protest Gay Marriage Law in Paris! This is old news, but the question begs itself: if they can do this in secular Frances, why are we unable to do it in (supposedly) Christian America?
(10/29/2016) Judge Rules Against Mother Who Forced Son to Live as a Girl. This is in the UK and the accompanying photo has nothing to do with the title of the article. Nevertheless, it is interesting.
(10/22/2016) Christian Bakery Sued by Lesbian Couple Closing. Another coup for the left. "No provision in our Constitution ought to be dearer to man than that which protects the rights of conscience against the enterprises of the civil authority." (Thomas Jefferson). Sadly, we have evolved into a government where some "rights of conscience" are protected and others are not. It seems that in the "not" list are those very rights enshrined in the First Amendment. Something is terribly wrong in our nation and to be blunt, far too many Christians are not only going along, they are enabling it with their votes.
(10/15/2016) Another State Tells Churches to Shut Up About Transgenders. Dragged into court for demanding to censor 'religious expression.' The danger is real. We have legislators and judges who think legislation can override the Constitution (in this case anti-discrimination "laws" which often aren't even on the books when it comes to transgendered). Of course, it is kind of annoying that the Constitution gets in the way of them, which is why those on the Left wish to ignore and trash the Constitution.
