Same-Sex “Marriage” and Religious Freedom

Here is a link to an excellent article written by Matthew Franck on same-sex “marriage” and religious freedom and how they will be at odds once the United States does recognize same-sex “marriage.”  When this does come to pass, the Church of Jesus Christ will have a decision to make.  Either it will stand for marriage as defined by the Bible or will allow culture (as wicked as it is) to define what is marriage.  The culture will not tolerate the Church standing against its views on marriage and will either persecute the Church to accept their views or will seek to make the Church pointless in society (which is what they want anyway).

I will repeat here again that the faithful expositor of God’s Word will be the one who will be persecuted the most along with faithful witnesses for Christ.  The expositor of the Word will have to teach that homosexuality is a sin because the Bible says that it is.  The faithful evangelist will suffer because they will proclaim that the sexually immoral will not inherit the kingdom of God and will suffer.

We must hide passages such as Matthew 5:10-12 and John 15:18-25 in our hearts because persecution is coming.

  1. Thanks for drawing attention to this comprehensive article on the probable effect of government recognition of “same-sex” marriage on Christians who want to maintain the Biblical teaching on marriage in their religious institutions and in their work.
