Thoughts on marriage

Marriage was instituted by God.(He created us.) The first couple was Adam and Eve. (Not Adam and Steve!) The concept of one man and one woman is spelled out for us. “Haven’t you read the Scriptures?” Jesus replied. They record that from the beginning “God made them male and female.” And he said to them, “This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one. Since they are no longer two but one, let no one separate them, for God has joined them together.” - Matthew 19:4-6

How much clearer can it be stated? What are we doing messing with the divine institution of marriage? Didn’t we learn anything by what happened to the Lutheran Church in Minneapolis on Aug.19, 2009, when they had just voted to ordain gay clergy on that very day, shortly before that tornado struck there? Perhaps you should go to to view the Miracle Tornado and decide for yourself.

Don’t you know that “everywhere marriage has been redefined, religious

persecution has followed?” With that in mind, we had better fully consider the consequences before taking action on this matter.
