"Sometimes I think it's a sin When I feel like I'm winning when I'm losing again."
Gordy Lightfoot's song "Sundown" is about a cheating woman, but the
hurly burly about "Same Sex Marriage" and other recent fiascos brought the lyric
to mind in a different conception. If we are still allowed to use that word.
Okay, about this "Same Sex Marriage" deal. What was won? What was lost?
Just who are the losers?
Maybe you'd better sit down.
The losers are all of those who reject what God has designed in favor of their own
Sure, sure-according to the world which ignores God, the perception is that
homosexual marriage is a stunning achievement, something to be cherished and enjoyed.
We Christians aren't over in some corner, sad and crying, having lost faith.
You see, we KNOW.
We know God, and we know that, whether the world recognizes it or not, His Word
is true and right, His Law is perfect.
It's really so easy. What He calls sin is sin. BOOM! Truth in five words, with
one used twice.
Whenever you think you've 'Won' something which God rejects...you are a loser.
When Christ returns and sets up His Kingdom, the only 'Winners' will be those who
Love and respect Him, who obey Him with all that they have or are.
The good news is that, in this time of Grace, it is still possible to be made to be
peace with God. You know the Gospel, though you may have ignored it all of your life.
I haven't lost anything.
You can redefine "marriage" six times this week, and it means nothing.
For God is True.
