IT MAY BE A ”YES” VOTE FOR SAME SEX MARRIAGE HERE IN AUSTRALIA…………OR SHOULD I SAY TRANSGENDER MARRIAGE?????
BUT IN GOD’S WORLD IT’S STILL A NO!!!!
I’m sad but not beaten, because I know that God is working moment by moment in the lives of us all. God does not interfere with our free will, God does not stop things from happening either and why should He?
We will things and brings things upon ourselves and then blame God if they don’t work out. You cannot have it both ways. God is not politically correct either, you are either for Him or against Him, there is no middle ground with God.
But I also believe that God does not forget his faithfuls, He will be there for us and not desert us. (See Deuteronomy 31:8 ) It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”
As we seek to share the Gospel in an increasingly secular culture, we must demonstrate how the natural result of the Christian sexual ethic is an intact family and culture of human flourishing.(Courtesy of Family Voice Australia)
The state has no authority to change God’s law. God’s law comes before man’s law.
We must acknowledge the laws of our nation and the authority of the parliament, even if we cannot accept a redefinition of marriage as a matter of morality and ultimate truth.
We must commit to being good citizens and neighbours, even as we cannot accept a redefinition of marriage in our churches and lives. (Courtesy of Family Voice Australia)
We now need to continue to pray and write to our local members of parliament that they will vote to protect religious freedoms, freedom of speech and the right for families to say No to radical gender theories and indoctrination in schools through the programmes they teach to our children.
In saying this, we as christians have the responsibility to uphold the law of God, the law that God through Jesus Christ His Son passed on to us thousands of years ago, that now still holds true.
It is pretty clear in Mark 10 what Jesus intended about marriage and passed on to us from the Father
6“But from the beginning of creation, “God made them male and female.’ 7 “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8 and the two shall become one flesh.’ So they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
and then we read in Genesis
“And God created man to His own image: to the image of God He created him: male and female He created them. And God blessed them, saying: Increase and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it.'” (Genesis 1:27-28)
