Grieving for Ireland

BND letter writer Barbara Baldridge congratulated the Irish for allowing same-sex marriage as the law of the land and said the 2-1 vote shows that Ireland is ahead of the curve. While she rejoices, I grieve for their transgression. It shows that they have cast aside the truth of the Lord and despise his word.

The Bible says that a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife, and the two shall be one. That marriage is of God. Same-sex marriage is not of God.

There are many ideas in a man’s heart, nevertheless the counsel of the Lord shall stand. You cannot dignify an abomination with marriage. The counsels of the wicked are deceit and the way of the wicked seduces them. All the ways of the Lord are right. The just shall walk in them; the transgressors shall fall therein.
