Would Jesus Officiate at a Homosexual ‘Marriage’?

counterfeit_marriageThis is written for the Believer, as the secular mind will not be able to follow this logic.

Confusion is the ‘flavor of the day’.  How else can you explain the fact that churches are capitulating to the concept that Christianity and Homo-Matrimony are somehow compatible?

The devil’s kids are highly skilled masters of confusion.  In fact, the Scriptures tell us that Satan is “the author of confusion.”  He doesn’t just practice and spread confusion, he is the one who comes up with the evil, crazy ideas.

It’s the same trick he used with Eve. All the devil did was question the authority of God, and that tiny seed of doubt he planted in the heart of Eve has led us to where we are today.  “Did God REALLY say…?”  That was the confusion and doubt that Satan planted in the heart of Eve.

The question, “Did God REALLY say homosexuals cannot be married?” is the fiery dart that the enemy is using today.  But the devil never answers the questions that he asks—he merely plants the seeds of doubt.  Doubt leads to confusion, confusion makes you disoriented, and disorientation causes one to get off track.

Lost in all of the arguments swirling around today is the one question that would certainly put to rest all of the debate within the Christian world regarding “same-sex” marriage: Would Jesus officiate a homosexual wedding?

But again, that is not how this debate has been framed.  The purpose from the beginning was to confuse Americans.  That’s how the devil fights.  We are warned “not to be ignorant of his devices”, but we choose to remain ignorant.

Jesus speaks the truth (actually He IS The Truth), and the devil always questions the truth.  Satan never forces you to agree with him; he merely dangles the apple and invites you to take a bite.  What has happened in the marriage debate is nothing short of the age-old “bait and switch.”

You see, today the enemies of God are doing everything they can to get us to question God, His authority, His positions, and His nature.  It’s the same trick that was used in the garden.   The Bible tells us that there is “nothing new under the sun.”  This spreading of confusion has always been one of Satan’s most effective weapons.  Let me cite an example.

The decision before the U.S. Supreme Court today is whether or not they have the power to change the millennia-long institution of marriage.  The fog machines are blowing and doing their best to shroud the issue in a cloud of doubt over what position Jesus would hold regarding homosexuals.

You can repeat the questions that are being asked as well as I can: “Should Christians hate homosexuals?  Should Christians discriminate against homosexuals?  Should Christians Judge homosexuals?  Should Christians deny ‘equal rights’ to homosexuals?”

Well duh, the easy answer to all of those questions is NO…Jesus would love and accept the homosexual.  But that is not the question that is being asked today.  That is not the question that the Supreme Court is trying to decide for all of America.  That is not the question that our pastors should be asking today.

In fact, in an attempt to manufacture even more confusion, they insist that you question Jesus’ positions on the topic.  “Didn’t Jesus eat with sinners?  Didn’t Jesus say that it was the sick that needed a physician?  Didn’t Jesus forgive the woman at the well?  Didn’t Jesus say to love our neighbor? Would Jesus reject and discriminate against homosexuals?” WWJD?

In all honesty, however, the real question we should be asking is: “Would Jesus Unite Two Men in Marriage?”  I believe the answer is very clear.  If Jesus wouldn’t “marry” two men, why should any of his followers?  Love homosexuals? Yes!  Marry them?  No way!  WWJD?

Let’s go ahead and clear up a few things—marriage was the idea of Jesus’ Father.  He is the one who defined it as a union between one man and one woman.  Jesus told us that He came to fulfill the law, not do away with it.  (Remember, I’m speaking to Christians here.)  Can you tell me of one time in the entirety of the Scriptures when Jesus ever contradicted a position that His Daddy held?

But we’re confused.  We want to change the institution of marriage so as not to appear “hateful” or “bigoted” or “intolerant” or “unloving” or “discriminatory” because, as they tell us, Jesus wasn’t any of those things.

Don’t you see the bait and switch?  Elena Kagen, Ruth Ginsburg, and their gang of God-haters are not deciding on the nature of Jesus or the proper treatment of our fellow man.  They are deciding whether or not the institution of marriage should be redefined.

Did God REALLY say…?  Does God change His mind?  Does Jesus have the power to override the authority and laws of His Father?  Was God a “conservative” and Jesus a “liberal?”

Jesus said “My Father and I are one and the same.”  “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

The question is not whether God loves everybody.  It is not whether or not we have the right to marry the one we love.  It is not whether or not Christians are “to judge.”  The question is, are Christians supposed to reflect the very nature of God?  If you ask the wrong question, you are sure to get the wrong answer.  Answer this question and let all of the confusion fade away.

    “Would Jesus officiate a homosexual ‘marriage’?”

    He wouldn’t officiate an interfaith marriage or the second (or third) marriage of a heterosexual, either, though. In fact, Christ actually was pretty explicit about not remarrying (so long as your previous spouse was alive).

    So what’s the point?

      No he wouldn’t. But then, unlike homosexual behavior, few if any people are claiming Christ would approve of an interfaith marriage or adultery.
