So what does this have to do with our country today? You see these young adults of the 60’s who bucked authority, who chose a different system of societal beliefs, grew up and are now the men and women who are sitting in seats of governing authority. Do you think they left their ideals behind them and returned to the former ways of life? No, I dare say most of them became rooted and established in the belief that all things are permissible. So where has that left us? We now live in a society that believes that it’s best to teach our children at the youngest possible ages what ‘safe sex’ is. We now live in a society that introduces our young girls to immodest dress. We now live in a society that believes that divorce is a given. We now live in a society where our children are being indoctrinated with the ‘gay’ agenda as if they should be tolerant of all lifestyles. We now live in a society that is trying to declare that all such ‘lifestyles’ are not only acceptable but a specific group entitled to the same ‘rights’ as everyone else. We now live in a society that says anyone who opposes such ‘lifestyles’ is a hater.
So maybe you are thinking, ‘What does all of this have to do with marriage?’ This ‘free love’ mentality that the 60’s generation has so flagrantly bestowed upon this country has led us into a downward spiral. The divorce rate is the highest it has ever been, the judicial system (quite outside the scope of their authority) continues to buck the law and declare all marriage types permissible, children are growing up in homes with single parents, and there is little if any respect for authority of any kind.
I believe fully in that God designed marriage. In Matthew 19, Jesus is asked about divorce. His answer however covers the scope of God’s plan for marriage.
Here we see the following truths.
1. Marriage was designed from the BEGINNING.
2. He made them MALE AND FEMALE.
3. A Man shall be joined to his WIFE, and the 2 shall become 1 flesh.
4. God joins in marriage, not man.
5. What He joins, should not be torn apart by man.
These are His truths; spoken by His own Son. If any man or woman thinks they have the right to change His truth then they should take heed.
I pray for our country. I pray for the families of our country that we will return to the Biblical principals that it was founded upon. I pray that God will raise up a leader for this country who will powerfully lead this country back to the roots of His will and we will seek to stand firm as a nation in His truths once more. I believe it can happen, I know it should happen. Are you with me?
