Hello, this is pastor gary from first baptist church of laplata. When liberal social architects began to redefine traditional marriage from its 5000 year old tradition of one man and one woman, conservatives warned about a slippery slope that would eventually lead to multiple perversions. Conservatives were pooh-poohed as being intolerant and overreacting; however, we were right. The latest perversion of marriage occurred in London where a woman married her cat. Her apartment building does not allow pets, but it does allow spouses. This woman knew she was violating the rules by keeping a cat in her building but found a legal way around them. Since the redefinition of marriage is based merely on whom or what one loves, options are endless. People can now marry animals, trees, vehicles, real estate, or even a moss-covered three-handled family credenza! People do not define marriage—God does. God’s definition is given in Genesis 2:24 which states, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother and shall cleave unto his wife and they shall be one flesh.” This same definition is reaffirmed some 3000 years later by Jesus in Matthew 19:4-5. God’s original intention for marriage was one man and one woman forever; however, with the introduction of sin and death into creation, God’s intention is now one man and one woman for life. God established marriage, so He defines marriage; His definition has not changed, and it never will.
