We live in a world today where creation is redefining what the Creator has already defined. The truth remains truth and should not be decided on by a majority vote. Why should we base our standards as a people on personal opinions and feelings that are changed so easily?
Truth: All things were created by Him (Jesus) and for Him. (Colossians 1:16)
This means that our understanding of truth should come from Jesus Christ, since He best understands and knows us. Being our Creator gives Him all authority to decide how and by what standard we live.
What does this truth have to do with marriage? Simple, it was God who created marriage. Therefore, it is "for" Him. Marriage is a God thing. We see this in Genesis 1:26-28 (paraphrased) where God said, Let Us make man in our image, after Our likeness. So, God created man in His own image and likeness. And God blessed them and said to them, be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth, subdue it, and have dominion.
We see here that God had an ideal vision (to create a being in His image and likeness), created ideal beings (man and woman) and placed them in an ideal institution (marriage). God had an end or purpose in mind when he created man. His ideal vision drove Him to uniquely design and create His ideal beings. Ensuring that they fulfil His vision, He placed them in the best environment to do so- marriage.
Marriage from the very beginning was God's idea and was purposefully structured to reflect His image and likeness. Since God created marriage, let's define marriage by His standard.
Marriage defined by Him is the God ordained union of a man and woman as created by Him, following after His image, determined to live for Him while fulfilling His vision upon the earth.
So, let’s hold on to truth even as we may be exposed to other definitions. Marriage cannot be anything else other than what God has defined. Whether the majority vote says Yes or No to this statement, my God says YES and His vote is the only one that counts. #GodMarriage.
