This is awesome!
What kind of “church” allows this?
To answer your question, a girl in my pledge class wrote an amazing article saying this: “I understand that in the Bible it says that marriage is between a man and a woman, but if we did everything according to the Bible, women would not have the rights we now have. Women would not be allowed to work in order to support a family and they would have to be completely submissive to their husbands. 1 Timothy 2-11-12 “Let a woman learn quietly with submissiveness. Do not permit a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet.” Slavery would be an excepted practice. The Bible states in Ephesians 6:5 “Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling.” Today as Americans, we do not believe that women are inferior to men and we do not believe slavery is right.
How can we focus on the part of the Bible that states a man cannot marry another man or a woman cannot marry another woman, but are allowed to ignore other parts.
My God loves and accepts all people and he would want his people to do the same. 1 John 4:7 “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.” Jesus died for our sins and yet many people cannot even be respectful to people they believe are sinning by simply loving another person.
Personally, I do not believe gay marriage is a sin. Gay marriage simply grants gay couples the same legal rights and benefits as heterosexual married couples. Allowing gay marriage grants so many people happiness and the ability to express their love and commitment publicly. Love is the greatest thing you can experience on earth and everyone deserves it no matter who they love.
Romans 15:7 “Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the Glory of God.”
This is everything
It’s 2015, it doesn’t affect your life, accept it and move on.
I totally agree.
