I was shocked to see that in the wake of the SCOTUS 5-4 decision affirming gay marriage as the law of the land, many of my Christian friends pasted the gay flag on their social media profile pictures. People who were once in my church hashtagged #lovewins in their posts. It was sad to see such a gross departure from Scripture and from saving faith.
I have a question for my liberal and progressive Christian friends who not only tolerate gay marriage in their midst, but also celebrate it.
How does a male-male marriage or a female-female marriage reflect the complementary marriage between Christ and the Church?
Which party of the male-male union represents Christ and which one represents the Church?
Which one submits to the other like the Church submits to Christ, and which one sacrificially loves the other like Christ loves the Church?
How can a husband be the head of his husband like Christ is the head of the Church?
Here is how apostle Paul defines marriage roles in Ephesians 5:
22Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. 25Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her
Marriage roles are clearly defined here, and a same-sex marriage cannot fulfill such complementary roles. Not to mention procreation. Not to mention the unnatural state of such a union. Not to mention the hideousness of the homosexual act.
How can gay marriage have a place in the Christian church when you consider the immorality of the LGBTQ culture? According to research published by CARM.org 28% of homosexual men have had 1,000 or more partners and 43% of homosexual men estimated they had 500 or more partners! How sick is that?
What a gross departure from the committed relationship between Christ and the Church. Christ will never cheat or divorce his beloved Church, and now the so-called Christian LBGTQ movement wants us to adopt this unnatural and immoral same-sex relationship as a representation of Lamb and the Bride?
I challenge those Christians who support gay marriage to think about this issue. I challenge my friends who posted #lovewins to change it to #lustwins. I challenge all of us to adopt biblical principles in our churches.
PS. How is it that SCOTUS can make a law in the land? I thought they only interpreted existing laws…
