Gay and Lesbian Marriages? In fact all marriages including heterosexual marriages are allowed by The Grace of God. Enmity (differences) was only put between Adam and Eve and between Adam’s seed and Eve’s seed (so prior to them sinning they must have been of the same seed) and from then onwards required in sorrow and conception to bring forth children and live by the sweat of their brow as a punishment for being disobedient, NOT AS A REWARD. It is not a breach of a commandment to be bound and faithful to your partner, it is only a sin to commit adultery or fornicate. If two people take up being together then “Let them be married”. If God’s will is such that he can say “let there be light” and there be light, then surely if he said “let them be married”, then they can be married. We are all God’s children (whether we believe it or not) and what father who’s child asks of him bread, would give them a stone?
Matt.18: 18-20 “Verily I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father, which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
Marriage is after all not a Heavenly institution, but rather an earthly/worldly institution, Adam and Eve where husband and wife by the Grace of God (who on earth married them?). Indeed the fact God allows any marriages at all is a sign of His Grace and Love and if two people feel so strongly as being part of each the other that they desire not to be separate, then let them be as one in marriage and considered one in flesh on earth and in Heaven.
Matt.22: 30 “For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.”
In praying “The Lord’s Prayer”, we pray “Our Farther which art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name, thy Kingdom come, thy will be done in earth as it is in Heaven”. If it is not God’s Will for ANYONE to marry in Heaven, then in fact we are praying for an end to all marriages on earth. And then we pray “give us this day, our daily bread, and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil”. Therein we are asking God to provide for us what we need, yet we are happy to deny others what they need (to be married). By disallowing a couple from being married (thereby becoming one flesh which cannot sin against itself), aren’t we guilty of causing them to live in sin and commit adultery? Who then is the greater sinner? Yet we go on to ask to be forgiven our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Please forgive anyone for accusing you of being hypocrites!
God Bless you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
