What should a Christian
do about the new gay-marriage laws?
“The Lord answered Moses, ‘Is the Lord’s arm too short?’” (Numbers 11: 23)
“But the Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him.” (Habakkuk 2:20)
God has not lost control. He is still on the throne. Nor has anyone changed His laws and truths. It bothers me when I hear Christians freaking out and saying, “Man is changing God’s laws! Man is changing God’s laws!” No, we aren’t. Call it what they want, it still doesn’t change the fact that God decided that marriage is between one man and one woman. And God’s laws still stand.
Just because society redefines "marriage" doesn't mean that God has. Just because some churches are going against the Bible and claiming that now certain lifestyles are acceptable doesn't mean that God has.
We who hold to the clear teaching of Scripture do not need to be terrified of or confused about the "changes" that society makes. Because it doesn't really change anything in God’s eyes. We do not need to panic or freak out, acting like the sky is falling and like it’s our responsibility to hold it up, and acting like mere people can actually change His abiding truths.
