Ben Carson: If the Bible is Wrong on Gay Marriage, Why Isn’t Wrong on Everything?
August 10, 2014 (AcuteMania.net) – This is a great discussion on gay marriage, and it asks the crucial question: If you don’t think that gay “marriage” is a sin as the Bible clearly states, then why do you believe the rest of the Bible? The question is especially pertinent to ministers who openly promote homosexuality and perform marriage ceremonies for homosexuals.
As noted elsewhere on AcuteMania.net, the Bible is explicit and unequivocal in stating that homosexuality is a grave sin, numerous times. The Gospels also reiterate, the point that goes back to the Book of Genesis, that marriage is the lifelong union of one man and one woman.
Thus, in Matthew 19:4-6, we read
And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
This marriage relationship is also the model for Christ and his Church, as Ben Carson points out. This can not be taken lightly by anyone who truly believes the Bible.
