No More Government Sponsored Marriages For Christians
That's it, no more...all done. Yep, that's right no more... “and by the (blank) State, I hereby pronounce you man and wife.” What has precipitated my ending and calling all Biblical Christian pastors and Christians to call it “quits” with Government ordained marriages and this often-read portion of almost all “church weddings”? Well there are several reasons actually... the first is the wide-spread acceptance of the Homosexual lifestyle which of course according the the Bible, is a sin. I really don't care what the Liberal's, Fox New Network(aka the Catholic Lawyer Channel) or the Roman Catholic Pope and other so called religious nutcases like Joel Osteen tell you and I, the act or even thought of partaking in homosexual activities is a sin and wrong. http://www.charismanews.com/opinion/watchman-on-the-wall/41253-what-joel-osteen-has-in-common-with-the-pope-and-the-president.
The Bible teaches us as I shared earlier that homosexuality(as is all sin) is bad, is wrong and should not be partook in. There are negative consequences for such acts. If you don't believe me, just look in today's news headlines. This nation(and other nations around the world) are in deep trouble, why is this ? Many suffer these days not just socially, but economically and in many other ways as well. Those with their heads up in their clouds keep telling us “all we need to do to correct this is ...” when in reality the whole issue of our suffering is based on the rejection of God's Word. Plain and simple folks; If God said something is bad, don't do it or.... well, once again...just take a look around you. As well, there are folks who are today suffering because of someone else's activity in sin. I really don't care who your favorite talking head is on television or who in Government you choose to support these days, it's not what they tell you or what to do that will get you where you need to go. Nope, with more and more American's accepting homosexuality and other sins as described as such in the Bible, what sin is now “normal” and acceptable, we will only see this nation continue in declining someday(probably soon) to come to implode.
Marriage like many areas of the Bible where God instructs us Christians to have responsibility over just as in other areas such as, taking care of the poor, widows and orphans, has been wrongly taken over by our Government. It is not, I repeat NOT the job of the Government to do our job as Bible based Christians. I realize there have been religions past and present that have faked their way into what the Bible declares us real Christians to do and have greatly abused our Biblical mandates, but that should not prevent us Christians from doing our jobs. The Bible quite clearly tells us to separate ourselves from such evil acts and quite frankly from the world as well. Homosexuality and marriage(“civil unions”) and anything to do with joining intimate relationships is God's business and His business alone. It is not the Government's job nor responsibility what-so-ever. Homosexuality has polluted the sanctity of marriage in our nation(and world) therefore, I and all Christian Pastors and Christians should no longer attain “Government marriage License's” or marry couples or get married according to the “State.” That's correct, no more Government sanctioned marriages should be partook in. Instead, we should only be performing and participating in “Biblical Covenant Marriages” with no mention or interferences of the Government.
What does a “Biblical Covenant Marriage” mean ? This means the Government has no right to interfere or intervene in your marriage for any reason. No Government divorces, no Government taxes, No Government Family Court actions in your marriage and so on. The Pastor and Church should be the only (as in the Bible) entity to teach, instruct, intervene in any marriage/family issues. Rather than a wife or husband running to wicked Family Law attorneys regarding disputes, the Pastor and the Church would have authority to help reunite, counsel, help, bless and teach husbands and wives how to love, respect and help one-another in and through Jesus Christ. The Church would keep record of such marriages and if and when the couple moves and needs to attend another Biblical Church, that record with a letter from the pastor would be sent to the new church home and the new pastor as to the marriage and if the marriage is in right standing or not. This is all quite Biblical and simple which is probably why the world will hate those who participate.
The whole idea of “Biblical Covenant Marriages” is to keep sin and an increasingly wicked Government and the world out of God's business. If you follow the Biblical Model for marriage, you won't be able to get some Government sponsored benefits I suppose because according to their evil documents, the Government will not recognize a “Biblical Covenant Marriage.” The sacrifice is worth it however in the long-run. Keeping away and keeping out Government intrusion and money hungry lawyers, judges, cops, CPS workers, Domestic Violence Program workers, teachers, counselors, politicians, psychologists is key to the survival of not only your marriage but this nation. That brings me to reason number two(2) for advocating only for “Biblical Covenant Marriages.” As with much of our Government, money and control are motivators to destroy husband, wife and families in general. Billions and Billions of Federal, State and County tax payer paid monies are used to purposely destroy families. Let's face it, the Government will do whatever it can to make a little cash from you, however it can. Sadly, there are an increasingly amounts of so called “christians”(small letter 'c' used purposely here) who seek out the Government and or Government paid agents to terrorize spouses, children, parents and their very own family members. Real Bible believing Christians need protection from those who turn their backs on Jesus Christ and use Government sponsored terrorists and their evil tactics to come after them.
So, let every good and Biblical Pastor reject all Government sponsored marriages. End all relationships with evil and the world. It is in 2 Corinthians 6:14-15, the Word declares, “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness ? And what communion has light with darkness ? And what accord has Christ with Belial ? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever ?” Fairly simple to understand, you don't need to know Biblical Greek to understand this. It is time to end the wrongful(from the get-go) relationship with Government. No more Government sponsored marriages. That's it, the end, no more. The one and only way Biblical Christians should get married from here on out is through a “Biblical Covenant Marriage.” If you are considering getting married, I highly suggest you and your future spouse find a real Bible based pastor and church and do what is right before the Lord.
It is my hope to write more in the near future regarding family and Christian issues. Please look for the articles soon to come. Thank you and God's blessings for those who follow Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.
