Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Homosexuals Have the Right to Marry

People who self-identify as homosexuals have the right to marry. In all 50 states. And they always have. And people who have homosexual tendencies SHOULD have the right to marry.

What people who self-identify as homosexuals should NOT have the right to do is change the definition of marriage.

Because in Matthew 19:4-6, speaking of marriage, the Lord Jesus Christ is recorded to have said,

4Haven’t you read,” he replied,that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? 6 So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”(NIV)

So marriage is, by definition, between "male and female." If a person who experiences homosexual attraction or who has even engaged in homosexual actions wants to get married, he or she should have the right to do so, and he or she actually does have the right to do so. But in order to get married, he or she must find a person of the opposite sex to marry.

Christians must keep these truths in mind as the issue of "homosexual marriage" becomes ever more prominent in public discourse.
