The media is in frenzy. Christians are up in arms. Opinions are flying. That being said, here are my thoughts on the recent decision of the U.S. Supreme Court to legalize same sex marriage. 

The Scripture cannot be broken (John 10:35). No human being, regardless of his or her eminence among men, can alter what God has established. We are free to do as we please, but we do not have the right to do as we please. We must direct our lives as God has commanded or we are guilty before Him. We will all answer for every wayward thought, word, and deed. Only Jesus Christ can wash away our guilt. 

I do not for a moment doubt that two men or two women can love each other. But marriage is and always will be between a man and a woman. It is the joining together of the two distinct genders of mankind into one flesh. That and that coupling alone can create new life. Regardless of how two men or two women try to mimic that joining, it is only that: mimicry. 

For Christians who are tempted to side with the spirit of this age, let me add this: 

To declare that Almighty God approves same sex marriage is blasphemy. It states categorically that Jesus Christ is a liar, for the Savior declared that marriage is between a man and a woman (Matthew 19:4-6). 

Furthermore, God established marriage between a man and a woman, and then ordained that marriage should be a metaphor for Christ's relationship to the Church, His bride. 

Therefore to believe in same sex marriage is to declare that God could have just as easily chosen the sexual relationship between a man and a man (that is, sodomy) as the eternal metaphor of His Son and the Church. Such a statement is blasphemy and a damnable heresy. 

Christians of all people should repent quickly when they have offended the Divine Majesty.
