How I wish the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was just yesterday so mankind will have some fear in going against God's design for marriage; that is between a man and a woman. The reason why marriage is only between a man and a woman is so obvious. Procreation can only take place in this set-up.
The condition of the hearts of people that pushed for the legalization of same-sex marriage shows how far man has gone away from the morality God wants us to embrace. God's Word is so clear on His displeasure on homosexuality but still, man blatantly ignores it. They couldn't care less that God was the One that said that "homosexuals...will not inherit the kingdom of God..." (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). They just decided to go against Him.
But you could see the moral decline coming even by a mile away. First, man decided to blaspheme God's name by making the Savior's name a cuss word, both in real life and reel life. Then came man's liberalism when it came to pornography. Divorce then entered the scene. Euthanasia also added to man's evil works. Then came the unthinkable...abortion. When abortion was legalized in western countries, we thought that humanity has reached it's lowest in terms of morality. But we were wrong. Same-sex marriages has now arrived.
It was as if the modern world gave it some thought, and then just decided to go against God.
Man, in his desire to feed the flesh, ignored the thunderings of Mount Sinai. To evade accountability for his deeds, he entered his own dream world. A world that denies the existence of God. But how foolish he is to think that by saying that "there is NO God", the God-Judge will just disappear in thin air. Oh, how wrong he is! His denial of Him just makes God more eager to someday declare him "guilty" and give him his rightful place in eternity...Hell.
Will man ever wake-up from his awful dream? God is real and He stands as a Judge to every human being. He will not spare anyone who had proudly offended His Commandments. Has not man heard that "it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God?" (Hebrews 10:31). Man will someday face God's harsh but righteous judgment, and yet, he is not doing anything to evade it.
Oh, God, come quickly! Judge this evil world so that man will finally glorify you, even in your harsh but reasonable justice. Oh, God, come quickly!
