“In the beginning,” the sovereign God of the universe created our heavens, stars and planets.
On Earth, He placed various “kinds” of living creatures. The final and highest order was “humankind,” which He formed as “male and female” varieties and breathed into them eternal life. Humankind partnered with God in propagating human beings with eternal spirits, to live on earth and serve the sovereign God, who is Spirit.
But some have rejected the natural, God-designed order of marriage, intended as a covenant between one man, one woman and God. The Bible says “they traded the truth about God for a lie” (Romans 1:25 NLT). Romans 1:28 says “Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done.” (NLT). The result has been heartache, brokenness, and even perversion.
These are the biological and biblical “facts of life.”
[FYI: Thousands of men and women with unwanted same-sex attractions and gender confusion make the personal decision to leave their homosexual lifestyle and identity and seek support and help from churches in their journey. Churches interested in helping can find out more and consider using Safe Exit curriculum by visiting www.pfox.org/safe-exit/.]
