On December 9, 2004, The Canadian Supreme Court
counseled the government of Paul Martin, the present Prime Minister, that
parliament has the right to redefine marriage to incorporate the union of any
two individuals, regardless of gender. This means that two men have the
right to marry each other; so also two women can marry each other.
Should Bible believing Christians finally accede to this law should parliament
follow through with legislation as they are determined to?
As far as I am concerned,
Thursday, December 9, 2004, has been, and will always be, a grossly dark day
in the history of that lovely country. Whenever human beings willingly
transgress the commandments of God there can only be darkness and not light.
Just as the teaching of
evolution can be traced in many of the evils of our society, so will
Canadians reap the world wind of evil consequences that will follow the
rejection of God's definition of marriage. It is true that God has
placed governments in all societies for the well being and preservation of
society. And it is equally true that God has commanded us to obey our
governments in the Lord. We find these injunctions in
Romans 13:1, 2, 4.
However, when governments
digress from the commandments of God and teach or coerce their citizens to
obey their anti-God laws, that does not mean that Christians are to accept
these laws in their lifestyle. What then should be the Christian's
stance in Canada in light of this new, pending legislation? First of
all, a Christian must always be kind, loving, and courteous. So while we
may disagree with the government, we must always be respectful. There is
another thing we ought to do. In Ezekiel we read, (Ezek 3:18 KJV) When I
say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning,
nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the
same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at
This text tells us that we must
in some way warn the erring individuals of their wrong course; what they do
next is their choice, and we are not held responsible for their actions.
From the very beginning when God
created this world He enshrined three activities that are to be with mankind
until the end of the world. These three activities are, first, perpetual
recognition of the Seventh-day, the Sabbath, as the day of creation's
memorial; its a day to celebrate creation and honour God as Creator every
week; secondly, to worship the Creator God and no other; and thirdly, to
marry, whenever we do so, the opposite sex and no other.
It has been Satan's aim to
obliterate these three institutions from humanity in order to remove the image
of God in man, to pervert the worship of the true God on earth, and to
substitute a false day of worship for God's appointed day. By substituting a false day of
worship man ceases to believe in God as the Creator; and instead he accepts
evolution or paganism in its place. This is exactly what we find today
in our society. When man chooses to worship God his way and not the
Bible's way, then man looses his Theo-centricity and becomes homocentric.
He worships himself and whatever else he deems worthy of worship. This
form of worship institutes all kinds of orgies and perversions in worship.
Man's history of worship through out the ages has shown us this.
Finally, when man chooses to reject God's gender choice for himself or
herself, to marry, and chooses instead his own gender (man to man or woman to woman) to
marry, then he sows the seeds of self destruction, perversion and woe, not
only among mankind, but also in all nature.
When man's moral inhibitions are
removed either by government or other wise, the demise of society next
follows; as, again, history of nations has shown us. This has been Satan's
only purpose and goal, and he uses anyone and everyone who rejects the
security of God's Word, the Bible, to accomplish his evil ends. But friends, I have good news.
This state of affairs will not last forever. God is now giving the final
warning to mankind to turn to Him in confession and repentance and live, or be forever lost. I close
with two texts from the Bible: the first is from Isaiah, (Isa 45:22 KJV) Look
unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there
is none else.
And the second is from the
Revelation, (Rev 22:11 KJV) He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he
which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be
righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
(Rev 22:12 KJV) And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give
every man according as his work shall be.
Man's probationary time to repent of
his sinful ways and accept God as His Saviour is soon to run out. We
have no time to be caught up with evil institutions and selfishness; let us
turn to God now while we have life. Tomorrow might be way too late!
May God grant us wisdom to do the right thing. God bless.
