Protecting Marriage

By Angela Wittman

18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
(Genesis 2: 18, 21-24 KJV)

Dear Friends,

I am writing this essay as today, (July 11, 2004), has been declared "Protect Marriage Sunday." I am happy to report that my Pastor preached a very Biblically correct sermon this LORD's Day as he read these passages of Scripture: Genesis 1: 24-31; 2: 7,18 - 25 and Romans 1: 18-32, and then expounded upon their meaning in a message titled "Marriage, by God's Design".

His sermon would not be well received in some of our more "enlightened" and progressive churches which teach that homosexuality should not be discriminated against and who participate in performing the hedonist ritual referred to as "gay" or same sex marriage ceremonies. I can only wonder how these religious leaders do not comprehend the many warnings and the absolute condemnation of sodomy and sexual perversion found in Scripture. The LORD has spoken quite plainly about homosexual sin being an abomination. The attempt to dress-up homosexuality in the respectable state of marriage or even a civil union does not disguise the hideous sin it is. I pray we will not let this continue as it also undermines our aversion to sin. Shame on those thrusting this abomination upon us!

We are currently engaged in a spiritual battle for the very life of our nation. As the God-haters seek to destroy the God ordained institution of marriage (one man and one woman only for life) and the Biblical family (father, mother, and children), let us seek to strengthen our marriages and families through Biblical obedience.

Divorce has become quite common and acceptable in today's Church. We are no longer shocked at the immoral practice of living together without being married. Adultery no longer seems as sinful as it once was...our inhibitions have been broken down. For example, how many of us still use the term fornication to describe the sin of having a sexual relationship outside of marriage? How many of the youth in our churches are dying from our Biblical incorrectness as they contract AIDS and other sexual diseases? How many Christian women and young girls have murdered their unborn children through abortion and abortive methods of birth control?

Individually and as a corporate body of believers in Jesus Christ we need to get on our faces before our Holy God and beg for His mercy and forgiveness. Let us then truly protect marriage and family by obeying our God. I pray we will repent of our sin of silence as we watch the destruction of our nation caused by immorality within and outside of the Church. Scripture tells us that God's wrath is revealed to mankind when He gives men over to their hard hearts and depraved minds. I submit to you that we are already experiencing God's wrath.

Please be aware that I am in no way condoning homosexual sin which God refers to as an abomination when I say I will not be calling my united States Senators and pleading with them to pass a Federal Marriage Amendment. I have heard it said that a vote against the FMA is a vote for homosexual marriage. It is not; instead, I will echo and support conservative Constitutionalists like Chief Justice Roy Moore who say the "real problem is renegade courts." Judge Moore also goes on to say "Congress would be wiser to pass the Constitution Restoration Act" than a Federal Marriage Amendment. (Taken from: Roy Moore Does Not Support Marriage Amendment, CovenantNews.Com, March 10, 2004). I believe Judge Moore has proven his loyalty to God, our Constitution and States rights by his recent courageous stand against judicial tyranny.

As you think about whether or not you should support a Federal Marriage Amendment, please consider these noble words taken from the 2004 Family plank of the Constitution Party platform:

"The law of our Creator defines marriage as the union between one man and one woman. The marriage covenant is the foundation of the family, and the family is fundamental in the maintenance of a stable, healthy and prosperous social order. No government may legitimately authorize or define marriage or family relations contrary to what God has instituted. We are opposed to amending the U.S. Constitution for the purpose of defining marriage." Amen.

A Judge and the Ten Commandments

We now face a new moral crisis, a new crisis of conscience, for voters in the United States, specifically, this time voters in the state of Alabama. That's because on December 12 the voters of that state will elect a new United States Senator in a special election made necessary in order to fill the seat that had been vacated by the current Attorney General of the United States Jeff Sessions. - Dr. Albert Mohler - President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary ( Daily Briefing 11.13.17)

Dear Friends,
There has been much discussion on the Roy Moore US Senate race and recent allegations of sexual impropriety and child sexual abuse made by women who claim to have been teenagers when these events took place. Those of you who follow my blogs know that I once was a supporter of Judge Moore and theonomy in general. 
However, I had a change of heart regarding theonomy several years ago (2013), and now I am no longer a supporter of Judge Moore.  I believe there are credible reports th…

March 20, 2018: Please remember to NOT vote for Bruce Rauner

Dear Friends,

The 2018 Illinois gubernatorial primary election is fast approaching and will take place on March 20th.  Please remember to NOT vote for pro-abort Governor Bruce Rauner. I don't care how much the Republican establishment in Illinois throws at you in order to secure this wicked man's re-election, please stand firm in your resolve to not allow a prenatal baby killer (or one who supports it) to serve as governor of our state. Just say "no" to fear and "yes" to faith in Christ by voting for a godly candidate.

Here are just a few articles documenting Bruce Rauner's betrayal of the pre-born and the conservative Christians who helped elect him in 2014:

IL GOP Gov. Bruce Rauner to sign HB 40, become first governor in U.S. to require taxpayers to fund abortion

Aiming for Godly Growth in 2018

Dear Friends,

There is much busyness in the life of today's women, but if you are a Christian, you will have a desire to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord. Here are some recently written articles by other authors I think you'll find valuable. I pray you'll make time to read and reflect upon the godly advice and wisdom shared in each one.

The first article is On Being a Christian Woman in the Year of Our Lord, 2018written by Abigail Dodds and posted at her blog Hope and Stay.

Abigail writes about the hunger of Christian women for sound teaching in today's churches, which is right and good, but also warns of some pitfalls and how to avoid them.

Here are some valuable excerpts from her article:
Here’s my summary: Biblically-conservative Christian women are eager to have visible, biblically-conservative leadership by women in their churches and eager to learn from gifted, female Bible teachers whether locally or nationally. Secondly, women with the gift of teach…
