Marriage, Homosexuality, and God’s tools for right February 17, 2007

As the gulf widens between the biblical worldview and the norms of Western culture, “Mars Hill” arguments are often useful tools to win the battle of beginning the conversation with the unconverted. In the case of gay rights and marriage, many proponents who support “same-sex marriage” argue that heterosexuality has no grounding in a universal moral code, but is only the closely held conviction of conservative Christians. In spite of the overwhelming untruthfulness of such an assumption, other arguments do exist that weigh in against “gay marriage.”

Arguments rooted in civil, social, anthropological, and cultural contexts each provide powerful cases for marriages rooted exclusively in heterosexuality. In this article (here), Randy Hicks, president of the Georgia Family Council, argues in just such a way.

Read it, and next time you have the conversation, you will have the tools to argue God’s case for marriage–from nature and society–all the way to the cross.
