Our Supreme Court has now rejected one of the basic principles upon which our nation was founded. Even sacred marriage between a man and a woman as instituted by God through prophets.
Marriage is still central to God’s plan for the well-being of all societies. The Bible says, “God created man in His own image, and in the image of God created he him: male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply and replenish (fill) the earth”. (Genesis 1:27-28) “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24)
The Supreme Court’s decision will result in a further increase in the rate of collapse of the family. This collapse is reflected in the increase in marriage failures, “living together” (fornication and adultery), sexual abuse, abortion, sodomy, drug and alcohol abuse, pornography, and a general rebellion against societies and God’s established standards.
I believe strong families, guided by a loving mother and father, serve as the fundamental institution for nurturing children, instilling faith, and transmitting to future generations the moral values that are vital to eternal salvation.
