Christians Supporting Gay Marriage?

Here is a question that I have recently been asked on Twitter:

“I get disappointed when I see Christians supporting gay marriage. What are your thoughts?”

Here was my reply:
“Yes, such a relevant question facing all Christians in our culture.. and of course I don’t support it.

However, do I necessarily think it should be illegal? I’m not quite sure.

See, we aren’t a theocracy… though I wish it was, it is very evident that the U.S. does NOT uphold the Bible as the law of the land. My dilemma is this: are we as Christians being consistent? Why do we pick and choose which parts of the Bible to force on society?

God clearly does NOT delineate between homosexual sin and heterosexual sin. It’s ALL the SAME sin to him. Sex is meant FOR marriage, between one man, one woman.. (Genesis 2:24). ANY type of sexual sin outside of marriage is viewed as the same thing to the Lord.. even just lusting after someone in their heart.

Matthew 5:28 – But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Clearly the Lord is outraged by any form of sexual sin, but adultery is even rampant amongst Christians.. how is this possible?

1 Corinthians 7:10-11
To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord)… A wife must not separate from her husband. But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.

Hebrews 13:4
Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

Matthew 19:9
I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.

All these verses talk about adultery and how the Lord is outraged by it. Yet I know several Christians who are SO against gay marriage, yet they have been divorced (not for sexual unfaithfulness, but for selfish reasons) and remarried…? Which God says is adultery… ?

So, yes. Gay marriage is immoral, not my own opinion, but the Lords. It should never become acceptable, because along with it many horrible things will happen to Christians who try to obey the Lord and His commands. (Pastors will be forced to marry against their consciences, or else maybe tried in court for “discrimination”). However, I just don’t understand how we have become so inconsistent? Pastors should treat remarriages and homosexual marriages the same: unbiblical and against their consciences. I truly believe the Lord will judge adultery, fornication, lust, and homosexual sins the same.

So honestly, I really don’t know what should be done. Because we really aren’t a Christian nation.. should we force our Christian morals on society? And if we do.. why are we not consistent on which ones we choose to get outraged about? I of course don’t want it to happen, (this is a good article “10 Reasons Why Homosexual “Marriage” is Harmful and Must be Opposed” that I agree with: http://goo.gl/KqIRr).. but I’m just not sure if we can even stop it. The Bible says there will be a great moral fallout in the last days. So whether or not it happens now, or in 5 years… it WILL happen.

Jesus is coming back. It’s only a matter of time.”
