genderappropriationShould gay marriages be “legal?”  Yea, I’m sure I’ll be offending some people who are close or not-so-close to me. But we just can’t ignore what the Bible has to say about it. If we need to debate the validity of the Bible, then that can be done at a different time, but for this purpose, Scripture will remain the catalyst for the discussion. The Apostle Paul wrote to a culture which had similar moral struggles as we do. He wrote…

Romans 1:24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

God won’t prevent someone from entering into an improper marriage or sexual relationship. In fact, according to the Bible, He WILL allow someone to do it. However, that does not mean He condones it, but like anything else we insist on choosing, it will have it’s consequences.
