In regard to the Guest Commentary writers article of Oct. 17, I would like to add a few facts concerning the marriage amendment issue.
The Bible does have something to say about homosexuality and immoral behavior. Romans chapter 1:18-32 is the best example and easiest to understand. Verses 26-27 say, “That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relationships with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men and, as a result, suffered within themselves the penalty they so richly deserved.”
There are numerous verses that refer to immoral behavior as well. Look at the last chapter of Revelation, it says, “Blessed are those who wash their robes so they can enter through the gates of the city and eat the fruit from the Tree of Life. Outside the city are the dogs, the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idol worshipers, and all who live a lie.” Revelation 22:14-15. Both of these references are from the New Living Translation.
I want to be included with those who will enter the city and eat from the Tree of Life. Please use your God given right to vote. Vote your conscience. Pay attention to the truth of God’s word, and in the light of this truth vote “Yes.”
