The largest Presbyterian denomination in the United States has given sway to political correctness and pressure by changing their definition of marriage and allowing ministers to perform same-sex marriages. The controversy surrounding gay rights has been debated for more than three decades but the Word of God has had little effect.
What Word of God you ask? I’m glad you asked. I’m always eager to share God’s Word with sincere hearts that want to know and live by the truth.
Genesis 2:24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
That’s God’s definition of marriage my friends: a man joined to his wife; in this declaration of marriage God is talking about Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. Eve was female, not male.
Anyone who changes God’s Word is not worthy to be called a minister of the Lord.
The politically correct argument goes like this. “God loves homosexuals and lesbians just as much as He loves heterosexuals. We must treat them equally in all things including marriage.”
The argument sounds reasonable, perhaps even ‘good,’ but what it fails to take into consideration is that God loves all people.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
God loves the murderer just as much as He loves the honest physician who helps people live longer and in better health. Does that justify murder? Of course not. God loves the rapist as much as He loves those who fight for women’s safety. Does that legitimize rape? I speak as a fool…
Just because God loves homosexuals and lesbians doesn’t mean he condones or approves it. Let these people into the church to listen and learn so that they might be healed, but don’t let their off-the-Word of God attitudes and lifestyles change your Word of God-based position on marriage itself!
Personally I love all people as commanded by God. This is not a homophobic dissertation. It’s not hate speech. I’m declaring simply what the Word of God says. The Word of God declares marriage as the joining of a man to a woman and it offers no exceptions to this rule. It’s up to us to conform our beliefs and lifestyles to the Word of God, not to change the Word of God to suit ourselves.
God made man in His image but ever since man fell, he’s been trying to remake God in man’s image. Man takes pleasure in defining God according to his own standards and desires but God will have none of it. God is Who He is pure and simple. Mankind was created by God to conform to God’s will. We define resisting the truth as sheer spiritual anarchy. Those who change the Word of God to accommodate political correctness due to political pressure have no right to declare themselves servants of the Lord Jesus Christ.
It’s imperative that God’s people recognize what’s going on and speak out against actions like this. Christians have a duty to preserve the truth, not ignore it.
In the final epistle of the New Testament, God urges people to earnestly (with all their resources and might) to contend (fight, compete) for the truth.
Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write to you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write to you, and exhort you that you should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered to the saints.
The largest denomination of Presbyterian Church has sacrificed the Word of God for political correctness. This evolved from undo political pressure being put on us by our own government. God is not happy with this, nor is He silent concerning it. I’m not the only one speaking out warnings against it.
But how about you? What will you do to help curb this blatant hypocrisy? Whatever it is, I urge you to do something and to do it quickly. The Word of God is always at stake.
God bless you who stand on God’s Word in truth and sincerity, striving to contend for the true Christian faith.
