Redefining Marriage: Whose fault is it?

To most Christians, the LGBT and their sympathizers are the ones who are adamant in redefining marriage – marriage as being a covenantal union between a man and a woman.  It may seem that that’s their goal, but before we be too quick to point fingers at them let us have a moment of self-examination.

Marriage is an institution that Christians hold dear to their hearts because they believe that it was instituted by Yahweh, the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. So, it is a Judeo-Christian institution. And as Christians (and Jews), we have become automatic custodians of this institution. It is our job to protect and preserve it…always.

But have we done our part?

Hardly.

We have allowed, for generations, the institution of marriage depart from its original form and intent. And we are to be blamed for it. Jesus Himself said that Moses allowed divorce due to the hardness of man’s heart; but it was not like this (not meant to be like this) in the beginning. It was meant to be a permanent covenantal union between a man and a woman, but we the custodians have allowed it to morph into a contractual relationship. By allowing it, we are guilty of changing it ourselves.

Not only that, we’ve taken it one step further by permitting remarriage (to a different person) after divorce.

So why should we blame others, namely the LGBT, for trying to redefine marriage to fit their preferred lifestyle. They are merely picking up where we have left off. Unless, and until we repent of our sin, we cannot expect others to do so.

I’m just saying…
