Either Scripture is Wrong, or You Are.

fam“Christian” Homosexual “Marriage” Advocates Render Scripture False

Homosexual “marriage,” not surprisingly, does not receive any mention in the Scriptures. This is a fact that supposedly Christian homosexual “marriage” advocates are fond of making, though it appears that they haven’t thought out the implications of what they are admitting. The view that because the Bible does not explicitly condemn homosexual “marriage” as wicked is taken by these advocates to imply that homosexual “marriage” is not sinful, wicked, damnable. And if it is not wicked, it is necessarily good, acceptable before God.

This is a problem, however, for the “Christian” advocate of homosexual “marriage,” for the Scriptures nowhere contain moral imperatives for husbands and husbands or wives and wives, but only husbands and their wives. Scripture gives explicit instruction regarding the need for sexual intimacy between husbands and their wives,[1] but none regarding same sex “partnerships” or “spouses.” Scripture gives explicit instructions to husbands regarding how they are to love their wives,[2] and does the same for women, prescribing the proper conduct they should exhibit toward their husbands,[3] but none regarding same sex “partnerships” or “spouses.” Scripture explicitly identifies adultery as occurring within the context of heterosexual marriage,[4] but says nothing about homosexual infidelity. Scripture explicitly instructs husbands and wives as to the nature  of their marriage covenant with one another (i.e. its length,[5] legitimate & illegitimate reasons for its premature termination[6]), but says absolutely nothing regarding same sex “partnerships” or “spouses.”

The Scriptures clearly state that “marriage [must] be held in honor among all, and…the marriage bed be undefiled.”[7] If two persons of the same gender, therefore, may be legitimately united in marriage, then their marriage must also be held in honor. Yet given that the Scriptures nowhere mention, define, or address homosexual “marriage,” the duties of homosexual “marriage” partners toward one another, homosexual marital fidelity, homosexual marital infidelity, or the nature of a homosexual “marriage” covenant (i.e. it’s length, legitimate & illegitimate reasons for premature termination), the command to honor marriage and to keep the marriage bed undefiled cannot be followed by “married” homosexuals. The marriage bed, however, must be kept undefiled and held in honor by all. How, then, can the advocate of homosexual “marriage” obey this command given by God to all?

Additionally, given that the Scriptures nowhere mention same sex “marriage” and nowhere define the ethical parameters of such a union (as demonstrated in the preceding paragraphs), this renders Scripture false when it declares that:

[God’s] divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.[8]

Peter states in no uncertain terms that God has provided all things that pertain to life and godliness for his people. Likewise, Paul states that:

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.[9]

How, then, can the supposed Christian advocate for homosexual “marriage” claim that God approves of such a union without rendering the Scriptures false? If Scripture declares that God has given his people (i.e. Christians) all that pertains to life and godliness, and that the Scriptures are sufficient to address every good work, yet the Scriptures nowhere mention, define, or address homosexual “marriage,” the duties of homosexual “marriage” partners toward one another, homosexual marital fidelity, homosexual marital infidelity, or the nature of a homosexual “marriage” covenant (i.e. it’s length, legitimate & illegitimate reasons for premature termination), then Peter’s and Paul’s words are proven to be false. And if they are false, then they are not the Word of God.

The supposed Christian advocate of homosexual “marriage,” then, is faced with the harsh truth that either he is right and God is wrong, or God is right and supposed Christian advocates of homosexual “marriage” must repent for contradicting him, taking his name in vain, and approving and promoting as good what God has explicitly identified as abominable. Either God has given us all that we need for life and godliness, and his Word is sufficient to teach us our duties in every good work (including keeping the marriage holy and undefiled and holding it in honor), or God hasn’t, and the Scriptures are a sham. There is no third option.

Scripture is Perfect; Therefore, Repent.

Professing Christian advocates of homosexual “marriage” do not seem to understand that the logical conclusion of their claims to biblical support for God’s approval destroy the Christian faith. As outlined above, the Scriptures are rendered false if these advocates are correct. And if the Scriptures are false, then they are not the Word of God. And if they are not the Word of God, then the Christian faith itself is a sham. You cannot serve God and your pet sins. You will either love one and hate the other, or hate the one and love the other. You will either render yourself infallible and, thereby, divine, and reject God’s omniscience and infallibility, or you will repent of your arrogant attempts to overthrow his law, repent of your advocacy of sexual perversion, or your justification of your engagement in such sin, and trust in the shed blood of Jesus Christ to save you from the wrath of God which is coming upon all workers of ungodliness.

Scripture is perfect; therefore, repent. There is hope for forgiveness and reconciliation to God, while it is still called today.

Soli Deo Gloria.
