CULTURE WAR: Conservatives In Congress Should Push A ‘Defense Of Monogamous Marriage Act’

Daily Wire: On perhaps no cultural issue has the Right more clearly waved the white flag than it has on the issue of marriage. The National Organization for Marriage, which for years existed as the leading organization pushing back against the homosexual rights movement’s a historical revisionism and redefining of marriage, now exists as a hollowed out shell of itself.

Never mind that the ludicrous 2015 U.S. Supreme Court case that bastardized the Fourteenth Amendment in an astonishing black-robed power grab to constitutionalize same-sex nuptials and impose it upon a divided citizenry, Obergefell v. Hodges, had all the jurisprudential heft of the infamous Dred Scott diktat.

Rare is the social conservative, these days, who seems enthused about trying to chip away at Obergefell‘s (il)legal foundation; most pro-conjugal marriage social conservatives resist the temptation to go on the offensive and are instead content to defensively crouch and demand values-neutral pluralistic religious liberty “tolerance.” more …

Opinion: As gay men and lesbian women came out of the closet, Christians appear to have been forced into one. Fear of being labeled homophobic has all but shut down the marriage debate.

Sin nature:

Every blood-bought Christian knows that the sin nature is embedded in all people and only the saving grace of the cross of Jesus Christ can make us righteous in the eyes of a holy God. Every blood-bought Christian knows that it (eternal salvation) cannot be earned (Eph. 2:8-9), it can only be attained by believing in the One whom He has sent (John 6:29)

Believe in Jesus: John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

What Must I Do To Be Saved? Acts 16:31 “So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.

Believing is a one time transaction. It can never be undone:

Eternal Security: John 10:28 “I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of My hand.

There is a non-negotiable reason a blood-bought Christian cannot support changing an institution that was created by God …

“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 1:27-28

… and a very good reason to honor Biblical marriage:

“Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.” Hebrews 13:4 NIV
