My friends welcome back.
Continuing where we left off on Friday, February 7, 2020 with Posts 1 and 2 of 4, today we resume with Posts 3 and 4 of 4. [See also the posts February 3-5, 2020]
The Source of the Bible - Who Wrote It?
Why is there so much evil, and yet, we can have 'peace'? audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
Not only as we have previously studied, has 'mankind' decided that by 'laws of man', he may 'murder' on a wholesale basis, the 'unborn child' in the 'womb', but, in each state today there are laws 'legalizing' the 'destruction of the 'family', as created by God, [Genesis 2-3], and has in stead what is known as 'easy divorce' or 'no fault divorce' laws, in contradiction to God's Word, 'Who hates divorce', [Malachi 2:16].
According to God, 'marriage' is defined as between a man and a woman, and is to be a 'commitment' for 'life'. [Matthew 19:6; see 'divorce', God's Word, Genesis 2:24; Deuteronomy 24:1-4; Matthew 19:5, 8-9; Ephesians 5:31].
Divorce is allowed when the parties are unable to be reconciled, [Matthew 5:32; 19:9; Luke 11:4; Ephesians 4:32; 1 Corinthians 7:15]. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
Additionally, there has been the change of what God calls 'marriage'. Marriage is central to 'biblical sexual morality', and so it makes sense that the Bible establishes 'marriage' at the very beginning. In Genesis 2, God creates man. God declares that 'it is not good for man to be alone' and 'forms a suitable mate for him out of one of the man's own ribs' so that both the man and the woman came literally from 'the same flesh and bone'. They were two separate people from one body 'created by God'. The text then states: "For this reason, a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh" (Genesis 2:24). audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
The Bible holds to only one definition of 'marriage', and there are many things it plainly does not allow. Things like a man 'marrying' another man, or a woman 'marrying' another woman, and two men and three women all 'marrying' each other in one big 'marriage', are not included in God's definition. All of these things are incoherent and outside of the clear 'definition of marriage' given by God in Scripture, and a Christian simply cannot support such a 'redefinition' of what God instituted for all mankind from the very beginning.
And yet, what occurred in the USA on June 26, 2015?
The Supreme Court of the United States ruled that Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional (see United States v. Windsor). That section prevented the federal government from recognizing marriages other than marriages between one man and one woman. Same-sex marriage is now recognized in all of the United States. However, the Bible has left us a 'clear' 'record' of what God thinks and how He reacts to such, found at Genesis Chapter 2:24; Genesis 6-8; Genesis 18-19; Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:21-28. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
We disobey, at our own 'destruction', for it is still true, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23). Amen. Amen.
God has given 'His Truth' in His 'Word'.
[John 8:32; 14:6; Romans 1; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 4:3; Revelation 3:20; 18:4]
When God’s Word has been rejected by government and banished from the home, schools and public life, anything is acceptable. After gay marriage, can we expect to see pressure to legalize group marriage, incest and pedophilia? [It is all in the works, even as we speak.] After all, the same rationale the U.S. Supreme Court used in striking down state laws against sodomy also applies to these sins.
Collectively, Western society, in particular, is heading down the same road as ancient Sodom and Gomorrah, two cities that God destroyed for their varied sins—one of which was homosexuality, Sodom giving its name to sodomy. [Genesis 18-19; 2 Timothy 3:16-17] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
On such as the 'right of children' to 'dishonor parents', giving them the 'right to divorce parents', in contradiction to the Word of the Lord, see Genesis 18:19; Exodus 20:12; Leviticus 20:9; Deuteronomy 21:18-21; Proverbs 1:8-9; 20:20; 23:22; 30:17; Ephesians 6:1-24; Colossians 3:20; 1 Peter 5:5-6.
These are just to list a few of 'so-called' 'new morals and ethics' which are in direct conflict with the Word of God. But, in truth, '8 All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. 9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. 10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us, 11 There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.. ' [Ecclesiastes 1:8-11]
The 'personal question' for each of us - 'Do I stand in agreement with, and live in accordance with the Word of God'?
Pause, carefully reflect on what is posted. Where are you, Adam, Eve? To be continued this evening.
Thank you for returning to carefully consider God's Word, 'the Truth'. [John 8:32; 17:17] God wants mankind to know the 'truth', so that anyone can live by His 'Truth'. [John 3; 8:32; 14:6]. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
