Gay Marriage Is an Abomination Before God

On May 8, North Carolinians will be given an opportunity to vote concerning their view of marriage. This will be a watershed decision that will either keep in place our way of life or bring change that will radically alter our culture.
This brings us to the ultimate issue. Who decides what is right and wrong in life? The possibilities are as follows: God, the dictator, the individual, or the majority view.
If a person does not believe that the creator God has inspired and preserved his views of morality, then the burden of deciding such things is with the individual or group that wields the greatest force in implementing the view. Darwin had it right. Without God, the only thing left is the law of the jungle, "survival of the fittest."
In a world where people hold differing views in weighty matters, it helps when one can appeal to a source of authority that people of ordinary firmness can identify with and appreciate. There are some points of logic that cannot be refuted.
For instance, there are only two possible world views: God created us, or we have created God. These exhaust the possibilities concerning existence as we know it.
There are two other points of logic that cannot be refuted. Either God has spoken with a rigidly accurate and preserved word, or we must divine what he thinks in our own private way.
The latter may result in a self-styled Jesus, not necessarily the God of the Bible as he has revealed himself to be.
As one ponders the subject of homosexuality, it is needful to distinguish between the world views of these groups.
Some hold that God loves homosexuals and is tolerant of their lifestyle and teaches us to do the same. Would it be unkind to suggest that this is a projected view of God without biblical basis?
Consider the following: "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: They shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." (Lev 20:13). The same judgment is stated in Leviticus 18:22.
The apostle Paul dedicated half of Romans Chapter 1 to this same issue, and it had not changed in 1,500 years.
The issue here is not whether God loves the homosexual. He obviously died for them. The issue is whether they love him enough to honor God's word. Paul said that they did not like to retain God in their knowledge and that they hated God. This is the real issue.
The Bible warns about -projecting our own views upon God. The following statement is found in Ps. 50:21, 22:
"These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes."
We have already outlawed God from our institutions. It naturally follows that the ACLU and those who embrace their political notions should want to legalize their own perceptions of righteousness.
God says homosexuality is an abomination. America is now saying to God, "Homosexuality is a legitimate lifestyle that should be respected."
This is change, and a -radical change of our way of life. It is not what we are changing into that made America the envy of the world. It is what we have abandoned that once made us the most powerful, caring nation in the world.
Many do not see this, but where we are headed is the jungle, where homosexuality, lesbianism, transgender, bestiality, pedophilia and any other conceivable behavior is a self-proclaimed right.
On May 8, you will have the opportunity to vote privately your conscience. If you are not offended when you see a man kissing a man, or two women kissing as lovers, then you will have opportunity to foster or oppose this lifestyle.
Your vote has ramifications that go far beyond the so-called right of those who choose this lifestyle.
Is this the kind of change you want? What kind of world do you want for your children and grandchildren?
