The Lord's Definition of Marriage

We hear much these days about what marriage is, because a few want polygamy and many want homosexual marriages, but if we listen to the Lord, we will notice that the same way in which He eliminated divorce and polygamy, He also eliminated homosexual marriages, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate” (Matthew 19:4-6).
In the beginning, God set up marriage to be between one man and one woman. You can see that by the fact the Lord added, “the two,” in the quotation from Genesis 2:24. That means three things:
He intended marriage to be for a lifetime.
He intended marriage to be between one man and one woman.
He intended marriage to be between a man and a woman.
Yes, in the same discussion the Lord gave an exception for divorce, but even as we should contend for heterosexual monogamy, we should also contend for the permanence of marriage.
Be loyal to the Lord’s wishes.
