Adam and Eve or Adam and Steve?

Marriage

I have written in my last couple of blogs about religious freedom and asked the question “who is wise?”. I have done so to get the thought out to those who see and read these articles that there is a clear change in how God and His word are viewed in this country. President Obama, in announcing the Supreme Court decision in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges, spoke of what a great step forward this country had taken in granting same-sex couples the right to have their “marriage” witnessed as legal in all 50 states. A giant step forward? I think we as a country may have just gone flying off the cliff like Thelma and Louise. Our leaders have in the past given lip-service to God, but now we have people making decisions that just fly in the face of what the Bible teaches and we are told to think of this nation as still a great nation. From the time of infants through our elementary years we are taught the creation story. We are told that God created the world in 6 days and rested on the seventh. We are told that He created light and darkness and separated them so that there was evening and morning. We are told that He created the heavens and the earth. We are told that God created land and sea and vegetation on the earth.That is ALL manner of vegetation. God created the sun and the moon “to govern the day and the night” Gen. 1:18. God created all the creatures of the water, the birds that fly in the air. God also instructed those to “be fruitful and multiply” Gen. 1:22. Then God made all the beasts of the field and He made man “in Our image, according to Our likeness…” Gen. 1:26. When God made man in His image  He realized that “it is not good for man to be alone; I will make a helper suitable for him.” Gen. 2:18. Having realized this God puts Adam to sleep and took one of his ribs and fashioned a….? Was it a man or a woman that GOD determined was suitable for man. It was woman and in verse 24 of Genesis chapter 2 it is written “For this cause a man shall leave his father and his mother, and cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.” It does NOT talk of leaving his two mothers, or his two fathers. The institution of marriage was set here in the creation. One man and one woman. In the Bible I am reading from as I write this article these quotes are taken from pages 1-3. That is not very far into the Bible that this topic was addressed. The lack of wisdom spouted by these leaders today is unbelievable and at the same time believable. This is similar to the downfall of the Roman empire as it devolved, and yes devolved is the best term, in their sexual roles and relations and eventually were no more. So we in the United States of America can look forward to our own decline and eventual removal as a nation of influence in the world and we have this generation of leaders to thank for it. We always need to look to God for wisdom and strength. Consider James 3:13 “Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom.”. Leaders today are not showing themselves to be wise or understanding of the things they need to be understanding of. Jesus says in Matthew 15:14 ” let them alone . They are the blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall in the ditch.”. This identifies what type of foolishness is revealed in this country on almost a daily basis. A blind man would be FOOLISH to follow a blind man. Likewise to allow ourselves to succumb to the “wisdom” of this generation would make us fools. “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness….” Matthew 6:33.
