Gay marriage opponents have won bans or amendments 32 times on ballot measures since 1998. Joe Biden, like his boss, doesn’t seem to care much for the general consensus of voters around the country and he seemed even a bit cocky in his announcement that he is okay with men who want to marry men, and women that want to marry women. |
Biden ignored the 4,000 year old solid scriptural teaching to offer his all new definition of marriage to NBC’s Meet the Press, Sunday May 6, 2012 at Mellon Auditorium in Washington.
Biden told his audience that - “marriage should be about being loyal to someone you love, whether that marriage is between a man and a woman, two men or two women.”
With such a high official of the U. S. government chiming in with both his good attitude and an entirely new definition of marriage, we are caught between Biden and Jesus and must now decide who we are more disappointed with.
Should we feel bad that Jesus said “Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 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,” (Mt 19: 4, 5) that he may have forgotten to tell us that if Albert and Andrew should wanted to leave home and tie the knot that they too would become one flesh?
Or should we feel bad that Joe Biden has singlehandedly devised a way to infringe on the first amendment separation of powers, thousands of years of tradition, hundreds of scriptural teachings and references and the will of the people in 32 states to make a pop culture pleasing, pompous and completely perverse statement – with supplemental definitions attached?
Obama, it is said, is presently holding off on making any statements about the ‘wedge’ or ‘hot button’ issue, but it has been reported that his view of same sex marriage is “evolving.” We needn’t try to guess that in an election year his aspirations for power are surely tempering his pronouncement on the issue.
What of these leaders that are not content to lead the country into prosperity, safety and exceptionalism, but are found tinkering with the social fiber, the moral underpinnings and the very religious and scriptural teachings of the Living God. Why is this happening now?
The great “apostasy” (falling away) predicted by the Bible for the last days is not just about the churches or the believers. It has to do with every major aspect of life on the planet earth. Government, social order (or the lack of it) traditional matters of culture, education and general society will all be profoundly altered as we enter into the period the scriptures call the “Last Days”
The church is busy debating whether to open up to the gay agenda, fighting over when the rapture will take place and preaching the watered down gospel of prosperity and happiness for all, while the antichrist spirit, as predicted, is raging throughout the nations of the earth.
The foundations are shaken; the disobedience soon turns to rebellion and active anti-Christian behavior. The only way to describe it is with the word – defiance. Sadly, according to the scripture the only thing to follow defiance in God’s economy is - judgment. That chapter in the eschatological narrative of events to unfold in the very near future; is about to begin.
The scripture doesn’t say that leaders will be struggling against the tide in an effort to reel the nations back from their rapidly increasing fall into perdition, but leaders will, as fathers, mentors, or in some cases, as worshipped spokesmen of the brave new world, pave the way for the demise of those who so foolishly chose to believe them.
In a recent interview with Joseph Farah of WND (formerly World Net Daily) it became clear that the message of the documentary ‘Isaiah 9: 10 Judgment’ taken from the bestselling book ‘The Harbinger’ was not just a parallel between ancient Israel’s behavior and America. Israel’s psychological and societal positioning with God is exactly the same as ours, which is in a word – ‘defiant.’
In the very same passages as Isaiah 9: 10 is found another warning. It’s about those that lead us, or as it were, those that mislead us. Should we be proud of Joe Biden for his new definition for marriage if it is presumptuous and misleading? Should we applaud his effort to lift the thinking of the poor religious and dulled minds of those who live by God’s word, principles and a morality that even the human spirit cannot shuck off without a fierce personal battle of conscience?
We do not thank Joe Biden for his statement, his definition of marriage or his leadership. What we are thankful for, is two powerful verses that warn us that top world leaders can be seriously wrong.
The Prophet Isaiah says, “For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.” (Isa 9: 16)
The Lord Jesus Christ says, “For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.” Mk 13: 22)
Be it the VP, or a false prophet, our response is no different; we don’t care what you are comfortable with, if it is in direct opposition to the revealed word of the Living God.
