The Sanctity of Marriage
The Supreme Court's ruling has sent shock waves, not only through the Christian community, but throughout all America and beyond. Many are concerned about where will this lead to? What is next?
The issue of polygamy is now a concern. Those who desire to have multiple spouses are saying if people of the same sex can legally wed, how can they condemn us for wanting to have more than one wife or husband? Their points are more than valid. After all, the Bible has many examples of polygamy (David, Solomon & Abram), but the Bible does condemn homosexuality.
The real issue is the sanctity of marriage. Jesus spoke about God's original plan for marriage. "From the beginning..." (Matthew 19:8). Jesus made it clear that God's original design for marriage was between one man and one woman for one time. Anything other than this violates the sanctity of marriage. It was because of the "hardness" of man heart. The harder man hearts become, the more we will move from God's plan.
