  1. No moral shift. Only EQUALITY.

    • You might have to explain your comment more thoroughly. Of course, friend, I am unabashedly working within a biblical worldview wherein the Bible is authoritative from front to cover, where God has spoken and revealed His perfect and infinitely holy moral character and in so doing defined an objective morality for the entirety of the human race. An aspect of that objective morality is the definition of marriage as that union between one man and one woman (without exception) for a lifetime lived in accordance with gospel order (most preferably) (see Ephesians 5 if curious). On this basis, homosexual marriage and the legislation of it would be a moral shift, not only from a supposed humanized morality, but from the very character of God Himself. Homosexuality in the end is nothing more than sexual immorality, but it is nothing less. And simply put, among other sins that habitually characterize those who remain under the power of sin, the sexually immoral and those “who practice homosexuality” will not inherit the kingdom of God – this is the Word of the Lord (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). To speak of equality, friend, is to speak of the ground upon which we all stand or stood at one time or another – the equality of ungodliness – “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God!” The Gospel stands, then, to speak to us all who now do or have stood upon this sinking sand. Romans 5:6-8, “For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly . . . God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” In fact, in that 1 Corinthians passage mentioned above, the next line gives the greatest sort of news for the sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, those who practice homosexuality, thieves, the greedy, drunkards, revilers, swindlers – Paul writing to those who had left such things to embrace and follow Jesus Christ states, “And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God,” 1 Corinthians 6:11. So, friend, I would encourage you to reconsider moral subjectivity, and most importantly, the issue of equality, for our truest equality is our separation from God on account of our sin and the condemnation that we have all merited, but God’s Gospel offers to you as it did to me, indeed, as it does to every person, a Lord and a Savior who by His sinless life, death in our place, vindicating resurrection and ascension, takes sinners who repent of their sin and embrace Him through faith alone and washes us, sanctifies us, justifies us – in a word, saves us to the glory of God. I pray that this Word will be accompanied by God’s Spirit unto your heart in Jesus’ name. Amen.
