New York State Defiles the Marriage Bed
America should be in fear of God's judgment. Another state has turned its back on the truth - not someone's opinion - but transcendent truth upon which our very existence depends - God's created order for the procreation and survival of the human race. "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, 'Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth…'" (Genesis 1:27,28a ESV) "'…she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.' Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh." (Genesis 23b, 24 ESV)
The image of God is stamped upon man and woman. As heterosexual beings they complement one another in the procreation of offspring who in turn bear that same image of God, sustaining generation after generation of human life. The perversion of homosexual sin cancels that process and negates the purpose of God, profaning the glory of the Creator. Once again, as in the murder of the unborn, Satan attempts to deface the image of the God he hates.
We have been warned, "Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous." (Hebrews 12:4 ESV)
