Shameful day in history

May 17, 2004: In Massachusetts, same-sex couples exchanged marriage vows for the first time in the United States.

Aside from Biblical considerations -- we understand that judges don't make their decisions based on the Bible -- Massachusetts has ignored history, legal precedent and established social order, not to mention the simple meaning of the word "marriage".

In Canada, our ministerial association asked for one thing; We are not forced, as ministers, to conduct a wedding service that does not meet our biblical requirements. That was granted, so it really doesn't concer me what secular society does.

Cheers,

Jim

Jim, I think I agree with the basic intent of what you are saying. We should not be surprised when secular society acts on its inclinations.

Nevertheless, I personally wouldn't use the term that it doesn't concern me. I am concerned -- but not surprised -- when sin escalates in the society in which I live, whether it is stealing, raping, murdering or just homosexual marriage. It doesn't concern me to the point of despair. God is in control.

The media,television,movies, etc. are slowly but surely trying to integrate this way of life into our culture. If you notice, it has been gradual. That is the way things are done to prevent the least amount of resistence.

Like Neil said. It reminds me of the parable of the frog and the hot water. If you place the frog in hot water it will jump out. But if you place it in cool water over a slow fire, it will stay in until it is dead.

You mean mythology is the key? That is a myth about the frog and lukewarm water.

Cheers,

I didn't know that, Jim. Thanks. It still illustrates a point.

I don't know for certain, Amity....I read it everywhere on the net when I was confused about frog soup, which turned out to be a metaphor having nothing to do with soup.......then another country actually makes frog soup...I remain confused.....*smile*

Cheers,

Jim
