Interfaith Marriage Conference: “Complementarity of Man and Woman”

November 8, 2014 (AcuteMania.net) – On November 17-19, 2014, the Catholic Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith will host a colloquium in Vatican City in cooperation with the Pontifical Council for the Family, the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. The title of the colloquium will be the Complementarity of Man and Woman in Marriage. It will feature representatives from 14 religious traditions, including Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu, Jaina Shasana, Taoist and Sikh, as well as Roman Catholics and professing Christians.

The event has been a year in the making since it was first proposed to Pope Francis by Cardinal Mueller in November 2013. It is being conducted in conjunction with many well-known leaders of faith like Russell Moore, the president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, Rick Warren, the leader of the Saddleback megachurch, and President Henry B. Eyring, First Counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

In a blog post entitled “Why I am going to the Vatican,” Russell Moore wrote, “I hope that this gathering of religious leaders can stand in solidarity on the common grace, creational mandate of marriage and family as necessary for human flourishing and social good.”

The LDS Church issued this statement about the interfaith conference:

At this time of rapidly declining moral values and the challenges to traditional family structures and relationships throughout the world, we are pleased to unite with the Catholic Church, other fellow Christian denominations and other world religions in standing firm and speaking clearly about the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman.

The objective of the conference is to “examine and propose anew the beauty of the relationship between the man and the woman, in order to support and reinvigorate marriage and family life for the flourishing of human society.”

More information can be found on the colloquy website is http://www.humanum.it, which has released several videos like the one below. There you can find information about the agenda, the presenters, the films, and media credentialing.

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.
