Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made 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. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. (Genesis 2:22-25)
Man And Woman; Husband And Wife
Solomon wrote three thousand years ago that nothing was new under the sun that has not already been in ancient times. Immorality may come in a different language, but it remains fundamentally the same from the days of Noah when the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. Sin does not change. Whatever version of the Bible is read, sin is defined the same way. Truth does not change. Denying truth does not make false the wisdom of God. Exchanging the truth of God for the lie does not change the truth.
What the Lord established in creation cannot be changed. The sun rises without the power of humanity. All of the stars remain in the night sky because God ordained them. The habitation of man is determined and he cannot go beyond the boundaries established by God. Men can explore the oceans and the vast universe of space, but they cannot abide there. They are creatures of terra firma. In the beginning, God created male and female. That has not and cannot and will not change. The immoral nature of humanity has changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image to their own liking according to the lusts of the flesh. Still, it has not changed what was established in the beginning.
God made a man from the dust of the ground and He formed a woman from a rib of the man. The woman is defined as a noun that “connotes one who is a female human being regardless of her age or virginity” (W. E. Vine; Old Testament Words). Husband and wife come from the same derivation. When God took the woman out of man, he defined the man as the same word as a husband and the woman as the female. In the thousands of years the earth has existed, men and women have lived upon the face of the earth having babies because that is the natural order of God’s creative plan. Nothing can and will change that creative pattern.
When a man calls another man his husband or a wife calls another woman her wife, it does not change what God created. Abraham Lincoln employed a brain teaser to make a point to constituents. He would ask, “How many legs would a sheep have if you called his tail a leg?” Naturally, they would meekly respond, “Five.” “You are mistaken,” replied Lincoln. “The sheep would still have just four legs. Calling something a leg doesn’t make it so.” God defines a man and woman and establishes the marriage covenant where a husband (a male) and a wife (a woman) are joined together. Men make fools of themselves by calling a marriage anything else. They also deny God and stand before the wrath of God for the perversion of the truth.
Refusing to define what is a man or woman is the height of foolishness and ignorance. God defined the terms long ago. Trying to create a family of the same sex is also foolishness and ignorance. God defined what a family is long ago. The law of the land will change to accept the agenda of those who deny God and worship themselves as their god. Every attempt at changing the creative law of God is like holding back the tide or making the sun stand still for a day. God can do that but not man. Sadly, those who deny the truth of God will one day realize that man and woman were created by the power of God to be husband and wife – and it will be eternally too late. What God has established cannot be changed by the will of men.
