At the heart of inventing homosexual and lesbian or transvestite marriage is the idea that humans define and can redefine what the basic human institutions are.
That we evolved, and that along with our evolution, humans invented social practices and institutions like marriage, and having made these up, are now free to further evolve and redefine them however we want, as we now have more evolved brains and so can make better rules for ourselves.

Along with this is the idea that the Way of Christ has nothing to offer, as theoretically spirituality is all just a remnant of outdated human thinking and evolution, which even once said that the Earth is flat, and so obviously has nothing useful to say to such advanced humans as have landed men on the Moon and spaceships on Mars.
That same idea treats God as having been manufactured by humans' imaginations, at a lower part of the evolutionary process, and so too tries to mark God as only an evolutionary relic and echo, a ghost of thoughts past.

Jesus Never Teaches a Flat Earth
And Science Does Not Create Marriage
It was however only certain people who taught things like the world was flat, or the sun moved around the Earth, and in that they were following not Christ, but pagan philosophers from 1,000 years before — who themselves were actively part of a homosexual and paedophile tolerating civilisation(?) !

Galileo put under the inquistion by Jesuits

In fact it was an outcast Christian, Galileo, who confirmed with a telescope what the Bible has said God revealed, and the ancients knew for many thousands of years, that the earth hangs in space.
Speaking of God—

He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; He suspends the earth over nothing.  

Job 37:7     NIV 1984

That old part of the Bible handed down to us by the Jewish people, never scientifically stated that the Earth was flat, and also accurately records creation and no evolution at all. No evolution—means no right to make the rules up for ourselves.

The True Creator of the Heavens and Earth
The Bible recounts the true Creator of the Heavens, Who directly made us out of the dust of His created Earth, and breathed life into us. He also made the whole Universe and all that is in seen and unseen. It is He Who has the only right to declare what the norms of human behaviour are. And God has stated this through His Son the Lord Jesus Christ in the Gospel ...

But at the beginning of creation God made them male and female.

7 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,

8 and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one.

9 “Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”

10 When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this.

11 He answered, “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her.

12 And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery.”    

Mark 10:6-12     NIV 1984

A fancy ceremony, or only a piece of paper does not a marriage make – they both only reflect the circumstances and the only deed that does.
And apart from marital unfaithfulness, mankind can not dissolve a marriage — and that is the Word of the Lord Jesus.

Matthew 5:32

But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, causes her to become an adulteress, and anyone who marries the divorced woman commits adultery.

Physical Consummation Required
It is the physical uniting of a man and a woman in the right circumstances that makes a marriage and that marriage is made by God, God makes marriage, and man can not himself unmake it.
Sinful Acts Do Not Consummate Marriage
When a man is righteously united with his wife the two become one flesh - this is spiritual and not just physical. It is not possible for a man to truly unite with another man, nor for a woman to so unite with another woman. Their God created genes have not naturally produced the organic apparatus required.
No Parliament or assembly of humans anywhere in the world can change that fact, they have neither the Creative power, nor the cosmic Authority to do so!

God sits enthroned above the circle of the Earth

The Hebrew priests had to closely monitor the phases of the moon to determine when different feasts and festivals were to take place.

They were well aware of the Earth's circular properties as shown by the shadow that the Earth casts upon the moon at different projections from time to time.

Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood since the earth was founded?

22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in.

23 He brings princes to naught and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing.

24 No sooner are they planted, no sooner are they sown, no sooner do they take root in the ground, than He blows on them and they wither, and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff.

25 “To whom will you compare Me? Or who is my equal?...”

Isaiah 40:21-26     NIV 1984

We will all face Judgement of our heart attitudes and actions in life by the words of the Lord Jesus - so find out what pleases God, do it, and repentantly trust Him now for His forgiveness through the Lord Jesus' death for your sins and bodily resurrection for Eternal life!

“To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?" says the Holy One.

26 Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.

Isaiah 40:25-26     NIV 1984

Hubble Deep Field Image Unveils Myriad Galaxies Back to the Beginning of Time
“Representing a narrow "keyhole" view all the way to the visible horizon of the universe, the HDF (Hubble Deep Field) image covers [only] a speck of sky 1/30th the diameter of the full Moon ([and only] about 25% of the entire HDF [picture] is shown here —1/60th width of moon).

“This is so narrow, just a few foreground stars in our Milky Way galaxy are visible and are vastly outnumbered by the menagerie of far more distant galaxies, some nearly as faint as 30th magnitude, or nearly four billion times fainter than the limits of human vision. (The relatively bright object with diffraction spikes just left of center may be a 20th magnitude star.)

“Though the field is a very small sample of sky area it is considered representative of the typical distribution of galaxies in space because the universe, statistically, looks the same in all directions.”

“At the beginning of creation  H
God made them male and female…” H
Understanding that marriage was created by God at His making of the human race is extremely important. The point of the human race not evolving, or making up marriage, can not be emphasised enough. God did it all!


Marriage starts with God proving to Adam that none of the other created beings on Earth were suitable for Adam as someone to be a companion for the man to help him.

The LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.

8 Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east, in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed.

9 And the LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground--trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Genesis 2:7-9     NIV 1984

The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

16 And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden;

17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die."

18 The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."

19 Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name.

20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field. But for Adam no suitable helper was found.

21 So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man' s ribs and closed up the place with flesh.

22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.

23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called‘woman' , for she was taken out of man."

24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.

25 The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.

Genesis 2:15-25         NIV 1984

God then has created marriage. He presented the woman to the man and they became man and wife.
Later on in our race's history, another similar example is given that helps us identify the same essence of marriage.
Abraham sends His trusted family Steward to find a wife for his son Isaac. The Lord confirms who the woman is, and by faith she is willing to go back and become Isaac's bride.
On the evening that the Steward returns, Isaac is in the fields relaxing/meditating, he is introduced to his bride (there is a witnessed process, and common understanding of what is happening), he takes her into the tent set aside for the Lady of the family, and they are married.

He went out to the field one evening to meditate, and as he looked up, he saw camels approaching.

64 Rebekah also looked up and saw Isaac. She got down from her camel

65 and asked the servant, “Who is that man in the field coming to meet us?" “He is my master," the servant answered. So she took her veil and covered herself.

66 Then the servant told Isaac all he had done.

67 Isaac brought her into the tent of his mother Sarah, and he married Rebekah. So she became his wife, and he loved her; and Isaac was comforted after his mother' s death.

Genesis 24:63-67     NIV 1984

The simplicity of this situation can not be emphasised enough. This is what Isaac's descendants --- the Jewish people understood of God's instructions.
And without the act of consummation — there is no marriage at all.
And that is just the beginning!—then there is the outworked submission of the wife just as the church obeys Christ, and the laying down of the husband's life loving his wife as Christ willingly died for the church.
So only a man and a woman are able to consummate a marriage, same gender sin partners just can not do it. And no amount of make-believe can change that. It is in the realm of God's absolute authority, and the real grace that He imparts upon His terms according to His Truth in the Law of Christ…
…Not ever a matter of exaggerated, contrived, political correctness —but of keeping to God's ancient, and timeless, declarations of human “rights and wrongs” for your behaviour in the life that He has given you—to help prepare yourself in Christ for the Day of Judgement that is yet before you—when everyone will have been physically raised form the dead and give account to Him, having received either Eternal Life and Reward, or then being consigned to the flames of Everlasting Torment!
“And that is what some of you were...”

Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards [/druggies] nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

11 And that is what some of you were. 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 6:9-11     NIV 1984

Even allowing for evil childhood interference, and the direct power of curses and demonic influence, just like any other sin, homosexuality is not a fixed given in life, and no matter what the struggle—for those who turn and believe in Him receiving His gospel and grace and persevere—the Lord Jesus Christ can and does cleanse, deliver, heal and forgive, making all things new and whole again!

Christ is the Life Giver!
