-"How ‘Newsweek’ Twisted the Truth About Same-Sex Marriage"

by Dr. D ~ December 17th, 2008

image Here is a good response by J. Lee Grady, editor of Charisma, to the Newsweek article: “The Religious Case for Gay Marriage.”

Newsweek writer Lisa Miller contends against 2,000 years of Christian scholarship by suggesting that Jesus would have been OK with Matthew marrying Mark and Luke marrying John. Grady deputes Miller’s contentions and lists 6 big lies in her article:

Lie #1: The Bible doesn’t define marriage as one-man/one-woman.

Lie #2: Old Testament polygamy negates the relevance of biblical monogamy.

Lie #3: Lesbianism is not called a sin in the Bible.

Lie #4: Old Testament laws against homosexuality don’t apply now.

Lie #5: New Testament condemnation of homosexual behavior is misunderstood.

Lie #6: The Bible never excludes people from God’s blessings.

J. Lee Grady provides some good answers to these lies and then concludes:

“This is where Universalists, inclusionists and gay-affirming churches miss the message of the gospel. They love to talk about God’s forgiveness, but they deny the necessity of repentance. They refuse to see that God made the road to salvation narrow. And they ignore the reality that eternal punishment awaits all who refuse to come to the Son of God on His terms.

Paul the apostle was quite exclusive when he talked about sexuality. “Do not be deceived,” he wrote in 1 Corinthians 6:9, “neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.” No one can explain away that passage. The God of the Bible draws clear lines. His mercy is great to those who come to Him in humility, with a willingness to change; but for those who arrogantly insist on living in their sin, only judgment awaits.

Many naive people—including biblically illiterate Christians—will be deceived by Newsweek’s gay-marriage arguments. Let’s sort through the lies and choose God’s truth over the depravity of modern American culture.”
