The executive director of the Manhattan Declaration, a movement of Christians from various denominations with traditional values working to preserve the sanctity of life, marriage and religious liberty, says conservatives will only have themselves to blame if gay marriage becomes legalized in America.
“If the Supreme Court rejects the time-honored purpose of marriage, it will be because the court – like many of our friends, neighbors and colleagues – has lost the meaning of marriage and its civic importance,” wrote Eric Teetsel, commenting ahead of two gay marriage rulings expected by the high court this month. “We will have no one to blame but ourselves. It will be our fault for failing to nurture and protect marriage, for looking the other way as rampant divorce, infidelity and sexual impurity chipped away at our moral authority.”
The Manhattan Declaration, which affirms marriage as a union between a man and a woman, has been signed by more than half a million Americans. While most U.S. states and mainstream churches uphold the traditional definition of marriage, same-sex couples are now allowed to get married in 12 U.S. states, as well as D.C.
This week, the Supreme Court is set to rule on two major gay marriage cases, California’s Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act, which could potentially have far-reaching consequences for the future of marriage in America.
“The word of God is sharper than any two edged sword”
Everyone who reads this – read the Bible! It is not a religious book! It is a history book..a book that teaches how to “overcome,” “consequences” when humanity does not obey the Lord and it is “his story”, which is rapidly becoming “ourstory”.
You cannot be on the fence…it is either God and live long and strong, or be a hypocrit and weak minded, watch the world fall apart. Turn your cheek in the Bible means to “turn, walk away” and do something to stop the wrong that is being done. Don’t just debate and argue…pray, speak, act in God’s behalf and watch people change. Most people are “followers” and follow the trends. The trend was sent by “ignorance” so the ignorant (lacking knowledge – untaught- lost) follow the wrong road in life.
May the Lord open the eyes of all of his children and save our world!
*everyone is not a brother– only those born again in Christ and those who are seeking to learn, to awaken and be born again. Don’t compromise or be intimidated by the “powers that be and principalities in high places” which the Bible speaks of. Stand for principle…stand for God’s commandments…be a world changer for good in Jesus’ name.
