Pah!

What must the good Lord be thinking?

Part of His Church has just voted to allow same sex marriage.

These are divisive times.

Now let me get this straight.

I personally have no quarrel with men and women who choose to be in a same sex relationship.

After all we are programmed to crave companionship.

The real deal here is that a group of people who masquerade under the auspices of the Scottish Episcopal Church has voted to allow gay couples to marry in church.

Now this can mean only one of two things.

They’re caved in to popular opinion.

or

They’ve just have opened their Bibles lately.

Here’s what the Apostle Paul says about marriage,

Now for the matters you wrote about: ‘It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman.’ But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband. The husband should fulfil his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife.  Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.  I say this as a concession, not as a command.  I wish that all of you were as I am. But each of you has your own gift from God; one has this gift, another has that.

Now to the unmarried and the widows I say: it is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do.  But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.

 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.

1 Corinthians 7: 1-11

I can’t let this event pass without adding

You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.

James 4:4

When we’re looking to “get with it” and live life to the full only God’s ways cut the mustard.
