Let No Man Put Asunder

Today religious leaders and societal leaders will claim that Christ never spoke on issues of same sex marriage and other forms of marriage. However, the Son of God did speak on these issues several times both in the Old Testament and in the New testament. In particular He was confronted by religious leaders who challenged God's institution of Marriage.  This was His response:
And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”

The following is a playlist of four recent programs aired on Issues, Etc. that address the issue of Same Sex Marriage and the Church's responsibility to bear witness to the Biblical Truth for the sake of sinners. Today we are at a place in society where Biblical Marriage is spoken against and trod upon in popular
media. Individual Christians, businesses operated by Christians, Christian congregations, and denominations are being selected out for legal action simply on the basis of affirming God's institution of marriage and the protections of Biblical marriage and family in the Sixth Commandment.

These four programs do a pretty good job summarizing and discussing the issues currently pressing upon the confession of the faith in our American context right now.
