MARRIAGE – THE FOUNDATION UPON WHICH SOCIETY IS FOUNDED
4 And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
The institution of marriage was Designed by God (Matthew 19:4-9), to be between one man and one woman. God gave mankind the institution of marriage long before He gave mankind His Law or His Church. The elements upon which Adam and Eve must build their new society was first revealed to them through the institution of marriage (not the Law or the Church). The institution of marriage was to be where:
1. Conduct Was Defined
A. Sexual Behavior
B. Social Behavior
2. Character Was Developed
D. Selflessness, etc.
3. Christianity Was Displayed (Ephesians 5:31,32)
The Conduct, the Character, and mans relationship with Christ, which are fundamental to the success and survival of any nation, can best be taught and developed through the institution of marriage between one man and one woman.
For any nation to destroy or redefine that institution is to destroy itself. It will create a nation of people that will be void of morals, character, and Christ. We are already seeing the horrible affects of divorce and the breakdown of the family upon our nation, but what will it be in the future when we have perverted the institution of marriage with same sex marriage? It is sure to mean the total destruction of the one pillar left that is keeping America from experiencing a total collapse.
