Why Marriage is Sacred between a Man and a Woman

This is a different perspective on this issue. Let me state first before I begin that I believe all people are entitled to equal rights under the law but I believe the sanctity of marriage should remain between a man and a woman and this is why I believe that.

Marriage was in the heart of God. It was instituted and created by Him. It was not man’s idea and we see this is Gen 2:22-24 Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made it into a woman, and He brought her to the man. 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.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and they shall become one flesh.

Marriage is not just physical. There is a spiritual element to marriage that can only be experienced between a man and a woman. God made it that way for a purpose. May I say that the purpose is this.

So that we could experience a relationship here on earth that is like no other in that it is the closest relationship we have here on earth that represents our relationship with Christ. We as His body have this close an intimate relationship with Him. We become one with Him. Jesus speaking in John 17:21 says that they may be one, as You Father are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. In Eph 5:30-32 Paul states, For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. For this reason a man shall leave His father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. This is a great mystery but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Paul is speaking here of oneness in Christ. This is why marriage is sacred. It was instituted by God to represent His close personal relationship with us, His body. This is why it should remain sacred between a man and a woman fore only they can be joined to make one flesh, as we are joined to Christ and become one with Him.

I believe those who wish to live together should have all the legal rights within the union but to call it marriage should not be fore it is sacred in the eyes of God for this purpose.
