Many look to civil law as the final word (as an example, The Supreme Court or the President). Please note that civil law was ordained (ordered, appointed or set out) by God (Rom. 13:1-6). God is over civil law and greater than any and all civil rulers. They should govern in a way that pleases Him.
God says “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil” (Is. 5:20). If God says something is good then we are wrong to say it is evil. If God says something is evil then we are wrong to say it is good.
Before one considers same-sex marriages he needs to consider that God says homosexuality is a sin. Paul writes in 1 Cor. 6:9-10,
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,[nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Since homosexuality is a sin there is really no need to discuss the “marriage” of two homosexuals. Who in this nation or in this world has the right to call good what God has called
evil? It is true indeed that many simply do not know God and what his word teaches. Paul writes in Rom. 1:20 that those who do not know God “are without excuse”.
There is no excuse for any citizen of the United States not knowing the will of God. Why then do we have such a moral breakdown in our country? It is because many of our citizens do not know God and apparently do not want to know God. Indeed, there is no excuse for Biblical ignorance.
