Genesis 2:18, 21-24
And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
On June 2, 2014 my beautiful wife and myself will celebrate 30 years of marriage together and now have been blessed with the privilege of assisting in raising our 4 Great-Grandchildren. Maybe we did something right? (smile)
The traditional Judeo-Christian morals that I was taught by my mother and grandparents’ dictated that a man and a woman were to be bound together in marriage for the purpose of assisting each other, procreating and starting a family and contributing to the community’s benefit. As far as I know, this concept is still in effect to this day unless someone changed the rules and did not inform me.
These same moral values were incorporated by the founding fathers of this country in the drafting of the United States Constitution and other legal documents that laid the foundation for this great country.
Somewhere along the line, our society has gotten off of the track from where God intended for us to be.
Remember, all law originated with God’s law. In other words, man’s law does not supercede God’s law. Morality cannot be legislated. When Jesus came to earth, He came to restore and reclaim that which was lost to Satan by the first Adam through sin. This He accomplished at Calvary on the cross. We should be familiar with the story by now.
The Bible (King James 1611 Edition) makes clear God’s views on the relationship between a man and a woman and it also states His view on those who choose to disobey His decree on the subject. God is not the author of confusion and His WORD will stand, His will be done… period.
Jesus came to usher in the kingdom of God (Matthew 6:33) not set up a religion and a kingdom is not governed by democratic vote.
Since the 1960s when prayer was legislated out of public schools, morals in America have been declining to what appears to be a 180° turn around from what was taught to my generation and has served me well for nearly 70 years. Be careful America… do not repeat some of the fatal mistakes history teaches us that others have made.
The time has come for the “silent majority” in this country to take a stand and return to the moral foundation values that this country was built upon. It can be done and now is the time.
GOD BLESS AMERICA and ISRAEL, our troops and our leaders!
