The question which the Pharisees asked of Jesus will once again be the question which the present followers of Jesus will soon ask – divorce. Supporters of the distorted notion of “pro-choice” are now gearing up again for another big push to have divorce accepted in our country.
Some of us in the present “modern society” feel that they are now equal to, or even higher than, the Creator. They feel that they now have the power to separate what God has joined. They promote safe sex practices so that there would no longer be a need for marriage to enjoy the privileges of married couples. They even distort the meaning of “male” and “female” and propose to join together in marriage people of the same sex.
Even worse, in spite of the huge increase in the population, fewer and fewer people accept the gift of giving up the possibility of marriage for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Gender issues should not be a cause for disobedience to God’s will. It could be a gift if they accept it for the sake of the kingdom of heaven.
The question is, which do we want to follow, the will of God or the desires of man?
