It seems like every week there is another effort by those who are seeking to legitimize the practice of homosexuality in America. While 30 states have a constitutional amendment prohibiting same-sex marriage, there is an ongoing effort to create a nation approving this practice. At least six states now recognize these “marriages” and efforts continue in most other states to change existing laws.
What is being overlooked by those seeking to change the definition of marriage in this land, is the larger picture. Suppose that every state and the Supreme Court of the United States decreed that these arrangements were legal. What difference will it make in reality? Suppose that in the future the efforts of these groups especially among the younger generation, create a nation where the polls show that very few have any disdain for same-sex marriage. What difference will it make in reality?
The reality is that there is law which overrules any law in any city, county, state or nation. It is the law of the One who created this world and all that is in it. When Adam was lonely, the Creator did not create another man. He created a woman to be the one who completed man. Did not the omniscient Creator know what Adam needed? He did not create Adam and Steve, He created Adam and Eve. He affirmed that man was to leave his father and mother to cleave to his wife—not to his significant other or his partner!
The first cities we know of where homosexuality was approved by their citizens date back to the days of Abraham. Whatever laws governed the behavior of Sodom and Gomorrah could not change God’s original plan. There was an outcry for those cites which reached to heaven. God described it as “great and . . . very grave” (Gen. 18:20). He showed His disdain for such actions when he sent fire and brimstone to annihilate them. They are His eternal example of how heaven regards such actions. Jude says it best, “Sodom and Gomorrah . . . having given themselves over to sexual immorality are gone after strange flesh are set forth as an example suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”
It seems some have lost sight of those cities which God set forth as an example. They are doing all they can to make America identical to Sodom. They have forgotten the example given by God. They see only the smaller picture of getting this society to sanction their sexual perversion.
The larger picture is when the “sexually immoral . . . shall have their part in a lake of fire and brimstone” (Rev. 12:8).
