LEGALIZATION OF SAME- SEX MARRIAGE
- The beginning of the destruction of the institution of marriage-
“Homosexuality is absolutely forbidden, for it is an enormous sin” Leviticus 18.22.
“God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, evil men who push away the truth from them… they knew about him all right, but they wouldn’t admit or worship him or even thank him for all his daily care… so God let them go ahead into every sort of sex sin,… instead if believing what they knew was the truth about God, they deliberately chose to believe lies… That is why God let go of them and let them do all these evil things, so that even their women turned against God’s natural plan for them and indulged in sex sin with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sex relationships with women, burned with lust for each other, men doing shameful things with other men and as a result, getting paid within their own souls with the penalty they so richly deserved … Romans 1.18 –27.
HOMOSEXUALITY: The chambers Dictionary defines this term as “having or relating to sexual attraction to members of one’s own sex or a person sexually attracted only to one’s own sex or a person sexually attracted only to others of their own sex.
ABNORMALITY OF HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOUR: The chambers dictionary defines what is normal as that which is according to rule; not deviating from the standard; regular, typical, ordinary; well-adjusted mentally; functioning regularly; Homosexuals do not follow or fulfill any of these criteria of normality therefore Homosexuality or lesbianism is an abnormal way of life. The Holy Bible calls this behaviour abnormal.
POPULARITY OF HOMOSEXUALITY: With the advent of the internet and the ease of travel from one part of the globe to the other it has become quite easier for proponents of this lifestyle to bond with their counterparts from the other parts of the world as a result pornographic materials depicting Homosexuality and lesbianism are found in virtually every nook and cranny of our society.
Addicts are quick to say that is an alternative lifestyle that has gained quite some popularity and therefore is here to stay. It is erroneous to assume that the popularity of a negative lifestyle will automatically turn into a positive virtue. For instance, driving on the opposite lane against vehicular traffic is an alternative lifestyle however it’s popularity would not make it a right thing to do. The implications; incessant traffic hold-ups- are not far-fetched.
LEGALIZATION OF SAME-SEX MARRIAGE: This involves giving legal backing to Homosexuals to consummate their relationship as a man would with his wife. Thus, a man would be free to marry a fellow man and receive the same constitutional benefits as in a man-woman marriage relationship. That would mean having homosexuals expressing their sexual intimacy in public such as the holding of hands, kissing etc. It also involves having Homosexual as Bishops, Pastors, imams, headmasters, Newscasters, Military officers, senators, and President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Societies that have legalized same sex marriage have witnessed a rapid decline and deterioration of it’s moral fibre as Homosexuality is nothing but an affront on the institution of marriage which consists of a man and a woman in a common bond of matrimonial relationship. Homosexuals themselves confirm this status by having one of them acting out as a woman; there are also instances of homosexuals adopting babies in other to fill the void created by the absence of the opposite sex. This introduces the baby into a world of identity crises and at the end the child grows up to become socially and psychologically imbalanced. This imbalance now leads to the corrosion of communal values such as customs and traditions. This leads to insensitivity towards each other as the value for human life plummets and irrationalism becomes the order of the day. A war of the sexes becomes eminent. That is why in Europe and America where homosexuality has been legalized, it is common place to hear of serial killers whose victims where women and vice versa. Other forms of sexual vices become rampant.
A LITTLE LEAVEN LEAVENS THE WHOLE LUMP:
“But it takes only one wrong person among you to infect all the others – a little yeast spreads quickly through the whole batch of dough! Galatians 5.9
all it takes for a total break down of societal and moral order is for those sadled with the SACRED responsibility of instituting godly laws which serve to protect society to make compromise by accepting to constitutionalize same sex marriage thus equating good with evil. This will automatically stir up other ungodly so-called human right activities who will then overwhelm the legislative arm of government with bills such as we have in America and Europe that legitimizes pornography which is Satan’s door –way to absolute sodomy. The resultant effect would be the proliferation of sexual immorality such as paedophilia (sexual desire whose object is children), incest (i.e sexual relations with near relatives Lev.18:10-18 or immediate family Lev. 18:6-9) promiscuity (casual sexual acts as depicted in most western movies, Adultery (sexual relations person Deut. 22. 22) Prostitution (acceptance if money for sexual intercourse Deut. 23:17-18) Bestiality (i.e having sexual acts with animals Lev. 18.23). These and other lewd acts are rampant in societies where homosexuality has been legalized.
The consequences of legalizing a sexually immoral act sets the stage for the collapse of the institution of marriage-the bedrock of a sound moral upbringing-today, 50% of the marriages in America and England end up in divorce after a year of marriage. Those societies struggle daily with the menace of STD’s (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) such as HIV/AIDS. There is also an upsurge in the rate of teenage pregnancies, multiple abortions; and this has increased the rate of maternal deaths due to abortion related complications. Our churches are now inundated with women seeking for the fruit of the womb due to the damaging effects of sexual immorality as most of them find it difficult to conceive and as a result lots of marriages are falling apart.
GOD’LL PURNISH EVIL LAW MAKERS
“Destruction is certain for those who say that evil is good and good is evil; that dark is light and light is dark; that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter” Isaiah 5.20.
our law makers where put in office by God to promulgate righteous laws designed to bring glory to God, thus promoting joy and peace to the populace. They should therefore resist the pressure form these pseudo- human –rights groups whose patrons and major sponsors are the producers of pornographic paraphernalia such as condoms, pills, pornographic movies etc , these see our large population as a viable market to sell their products as they are presently doing in the public schools on America and Europe were condoms are freely distributed to children in public schools and today we have a sex industry with an estimated worth of over 5 billion U.S Dollars. Law makers are given mouth watering offers to enact bad laws at the expense of the safety of their children and loved ones who are suffering under the consequences of the wrong decisions made by past governments. Monies that would have been used to build good roads and other essentials are diverted towards buying drugs to fight the scurge of the various STD’S which attack the workforce of the nation thus destroying the economy of the nation.
SEXUAL SINS ARE SEVERELY CONDEMNED BY GOD
Adultery, fornication, homosexuality, sensuality, impure desire and degrading passions are considered grave sins in the sight of God. They are a transgression of the law of love and a defiling of the marriage relationship such sins are severely condemned in scripture. Making a practice of these sins places one outside the kingdom of God. (Romans 1.24-32, 1 Cor. 6.9, 10, Gal. 5: 19-21).
SEX EDUCATION: God created sex to be an intimate bonding experience between a husband and wife. Homosexual practices violate God’s design. We must not take sexual sin lightly indifference about it only conveys acceptance, and God does not want us to accept sin. Parents need to teach their children that God has made provision for sexual union within the bonds of marriage between a man and a woman (Gen. 2:23-24). If we don’t tell our kids the truth about sex, someone will tell them a lie.
Heavenly, Father forgive me of my sexual sins and wash me clean from filthy thoughts on sex, I pray in Jesus name. Amen.
