Defending Marriage Part 1

“Mec, Mek whatever”

So it begins again. Another opportunity for people to define what a marriage is. This flawed and misguided chance to take something that is profound, and turn it into something it's not. To take core principles out of matrimony and still call it marriage boggles the mind.

Let us look at a view issues that keep arising and why this battle never dies.



Bigotry and Hatred

Apparently, people who do not have a choice to have their own opinions.We cannot oppose select groups of people. If our views are different than theirs, we are called bigots who hate them. Yet, we should be allowed to disagree. We have the same rights to speak freely, just like them. But when we do, it becomes a one way street. Where we are told that we are not tolerating their lifestyle.



Toleration

We are taught that people are different. That we will have different views and opinions from other people. We won't always see eye to eye. We need to accept that there will be differences. I agree. But this does not mean that if people decide to live differently than me or any other person, that I must condone their lifestyle. That I have to accept it as being ok. I don't. That is my choice. I don't voice my opinion out in the open that I oppose their lifestyle. That my opinion differs than what they want to hear.

It becomes difficult when select groups of people feel they are entitled to rights that other people do not get. They become a special interest case. The activist side do not live their lives quietly. They ram it down our throats, forcing us to accept them. And when we don't, they object and start with the attacks of hatred. That we are not tolerant of their choices.

Why can't they be tolerant of our opinions or our choice of Christianity as our way we choose to live? Why is this only a one way street?



For Better or Worse

Today's image of marriage isn't what it used to be. Vows actually mattered. They weren't just words said once and forgotten after the wedding day. The divorce rate is ridiculously high and with no end in sight. It is unfortunate that this covenant is broken and abused.

People live together before they get married, then they finally get married, then they eventually figure out it won't work.

People think they have redefined what marriage is. What marriage is supposed to be isn't the issue, it's the people. It is a user problem.

Justification that many marriages are broken, doesn't change the definition of marriage. When people do not live by the laws of marriage, then there will be failure. If people feel they have the right to marry because of other people's failure, they are wrong. They want twist the definition of marriage, which is not their right.The laws were not defined by man, but by God.



Biblical Speaking

Somewhere, people and Christians have become misguided with marriage, what marriage is and what it entails. Yes, we are fallible to sin, but we can still try to strive to make it the best we can. Not calling it quits when it gets tough, not taking the easy way out.

Many marriage have ended in divorce, and not for the Biblical principles that are aligned by Paul. Many fail to live by the standards set. Many choose to break the laws and are often picking of pieces and trying to start over. How does one start freshly again when he or she had a failed relationship and refuses to learn from their mistakes.

The covenant of marriage is not just between man and woman, but also with God. This is a promise that is made, and is not taken lightly.
