I just finished reading an article by some supposed “professors” of “history” and “religious studies” (which I’ve noticed is a world of a difference from actual Biblical knowledge even though they call themselves “academic biblical scholars”) that actually contends that the Bible doesn’t say marriage is only between one man and one woman but that multiple forms of marriage are actually acceptable according to biblical teaching.
Does “Professing to be wise, they became fools,” (Romans 1:22) ring a bell to anyone but me?
In their futile attempt to promote the homosexual agenda they revealed (I almost spelled reviled) their contempt for anything that the Bible plainly contradicts when it comes to the sins of past, present and future cultures and societies.
The supposed “proof” of their claim rests upon the fact that individuals such as Abraham, Jacob, David and Solomon had multiple wives. Oh how I wish these wolves in sheep’s clothing critics of the Bible would recognize the difference between the Bible’s record of something and God’s approval of whatever is recorded! David murdered people, but that doesn’t mean it was approved of by God!
If that weren’t enough, the supposed and self-professed “professors of the Bible” go on to completely ignore the point made by Jesus in Matthew 19:1-10. In the middle of a discussion about marriage and divorce Jesus brings the discussion back to the beginning of the marriage covenant when there was – wait for it – only one man and one woman who were meant to become one flesh! Not two men and one woman, not two women and one man and not three, four or twelve fleshes! There’s no way around it other than to stick your finger in your ears and yell la la la la. A biblical marriage is meant to be between only one man and one woman.
Entering into marriage is not a command that every man and woman has to follow, but a lawful marriage in the sight of God cannot be entered into without following the commands of God which makes marriage today exactly what it was meant to be from the beginning!
A person can call the Bible ancient all they want to, ironically it’s not anything new, but this ancient book still contains all the answers for today’s problems and it also contains the words by which every single and married person alike will be judged by regardless of what our modern-day ethical and moral “standards” think about it.
How much plainer does it have to be. There are none so blind as those who will not see still rings sadly true.
“And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?” (Matthew 19:4-5)
