Narrow road

To the Editor:

I read Genevieve Beenen’s article April 3, in which she makes her case in support of same-sex marriage. I noted, at times, she seems to question God’s Word via mankind’s thoughts and behavior regarding it. In the Bible, there was another who questioned God’s Word and that was the serpent in the Garden of Eden. The serpent said to Eve, “Did God really say...” and Eve succumbed to the deception.

If one notes, God held true to his promise that the wages of sin is death. In God there is no darkness, for He is perfect and true to His Word throughout the Bible. It’s sinful acts and thoughts that separate one from God and that can blind us from doing what is right and proper according to His Word.

In reading Ms. Beenen’s article, I am also reminded of what Jesus said to Nicodemus in John 3:12 where he said, “If I have told you earthly things and you don’t believe, how shall you believe if I tell you of heavenly things?”

Jesus talks of marriage in Mark 10:6-9, “But God’s plan was seen from the beginning of creation, for He made them male and female. This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife and the two are united into one. Since they are no longer two but one, let no one separate them, for God has joined them together.” For God has joined them together - a man and a woman.

A Christian follows and does not endorse acts contrary to God’s Word. For the forthright Christian believes as it says in Matthew 7:14, “But the gateway to life is small, and the road is narrow, and few there be that find it.”

Let us lead our neighbor to the narrow road, for God is true to His Word just as He was in the Garden of Eden where man doubted His Word and fell away
