Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve
Gay marriage

Some may believe that gay marriage isn’t morally wrong; while mainly strong biblical based Christians (the opposing side) states it is; I am for the opposing side. The policy should not be changed in the states that are against gay marriage, and define marriage as between one man and one woman. In the other states and countries, the legalization of gay marriage still exists. Something should be done about this.

Homosexuality is considered an Abomination
My first argument is coming from Leviticus 20:13, where it states “a man shall not lie with another man as he would with a woman, and if he does, this act will be considered an abomination in the eyes of God.” When God uses the word “abomination” to describe this specific sin, he is using the strongest and most intense word that He can possibly use to describe what He really thinks about this particular sin. Homosexuality is not what God intended while creating this earth and its people.

He created Adam, He then created Eve
Male and Female he created them.
When God created this earth, and then Adam, he then created a partner for him; he created Eve, not another Adam. This means that perfect partnership requires some level of difference as well as similarity so great to the point that Adam could cry out loudly, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh”. Sexual intimacy between a man and a woman is the normal method of male and female bonding (emotionally and physically) because it corresponds to the design of our bodies and because it is the normal means in which to reproduce.

The design of our body contradicts homosexuality
If God had intended humans to be fulfilled through both heterosexual and homosexual marriage, He would have designed our bodies to allow reproduction through both means and made both of the sexual intercourse healthy and natural. Homosexual anal intercourse carries a high risk of disease, this is recognized in Scripture where gay men are said to receive in their bodies the due penalty for their error. (Romans 1:27).

Not a Godly marriage with a same sex union
1 Timothy 1:9-10, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, & Romans 1:26-27 are all references that indicate that homosexual passions and actions are unnatural, shameful, and deny entrance to the Kingdom of God. In which, this in general is wrong. This cannot be the basis of a Christian marriage blessed by God's Church. No matter whatever our society may legislate; the law of God is clear, that a marriage is not a godly marriage if it is a same sex union.

Therefore, Gay marriage should not be promoted. It should be banned across all states. Marriage is strictly defined as a union between a man and a woman. Also, if the legalization of marriage between same sex partners, our society would gradually be more acceptant, and give the impression to future generations that homosexuality is not morally wrong, and opinions and our culture will begin to differ. In conclusion, my opinion believes that marriage between same sexes is unethical and should not be legalized.
