Forced Participation

This picture from one of the marches made me chuckle. Clearly, this guy’s wife, or husband, made him participate.

    And he is carrying a marriage under God’s design (1 man, 1 woman) banner among all those liberals intolerant of Christian standards….he deserves an award!

    Yes, an award for texting while

    protesting.  My bad.

    Pretty sure that King David (who was described by God himself as “a man after my own heart”) would laugh heartily at Kevin’s idea that the Lord will only allow 1 man & 1 woman to be united in marriage.

    King David was also called out by God, for his sin.   2 Samuel Chapter 12.

    If you are referring to Old Testament civil and ceremonial law, that has been overwritten by fullfillment of New Testament covenant.  I could get into an in depth study on how God warned Israel’s leaders against taking foreign wives  (as was the custom of conquering kings of the day), but methinks you would probably not listen.

    The sin He called David out for was for taking a beloved pet from another man and serving it up as food…nothing at all about the “sin” of many wives.

    It was a lack of pity that angered the Lord – something we all need to be reminded of from time-to-time, and one of my favorite lessons from the OT.

    Did you read 2 Samuel 12?

    Your response indicates you did not.

    Also check out Matthew 19:5, and Mark 10: 5-9 in case you doubt marriage under God’s design. (1 man, 1 woman).

    Just because one disagrees with your personal interpretation of some Bible verses doesn’t mean it was not read. The other verses you quote also don’t say “God’s design for marriage is only 1 man and 1 woman“. Been through this with others before, and it’ll just have to be something we agree to disagree on.

    Funny thing is that when it comes to marriage issues, Jesus seemed to mostly speak out against divorce….so it puzzles me why these self-anointed Protectors of Marriage have nary a word to say about that. Why do you suppose there isn’t as much uproar about divorce as there is about gay marriage?

  10. Kevin Scheunemann


    When it comes to Matthew 19 and Mark 10, it is clear.   You have to really work hard to ignore Jesus commenting directly on marriage under God’s design.

    You would not be the first one to reject the true Christian standard on marriage.

    I will be the first one to admonish Christians who divorce (outside of the 2 biblical exceptions) and Christians who live together pretending to be married, when they are not, simply because they want the option of easily disposable spouses.  The perishing unbeliever, who openly reject Christ, are able to do whatever.

    “Why do you suppose there isn’t as much uproar about divorce as there is about gay marriage?”

    Probably because that would be against the practices of many of the leaders on the right (left as well), as such esteemed conservatives as Limbaugh, Gingrich, Giuliani, Trump, Sykes, Regan, et al would be hard pressed to condemn divorce without becoming even bigger hypocrites.
