God’s good reasonsBy Lloyd Hoover Leola, Pa.
The prevalence of sexual abuse issues and the discussions concerning same-sex marriage highlight a dilemma in our society and the church to determine healthy sexual expression. I look to the Bible for help not only because the Word of God is a spiritual perspective but also because it is the best way for a promising future. Whenever God says no to something, it is for a reason. It is obvious that God consistently says no to same-sex marriage. Even without recognizing the fact that God calls some sexual relationships sin, there are many reasons to consider God’s design for marriage to be between a man and a woman: complementary body design for sexual gratification; the highest standard for health; the only mode for reproducing the next generation; a clear way to pass on a legacy through descendants; ability to experience the joy of parenting and grandparenting; meeting a child’s needs through the strengths of both a mother and a father.
It is impossible for man to create a blessing that is beyond simply doing things God’s way.
