Male and Female Created He Them

I have some notes but I’m going to hold them for just a moment. Please turn with me to Proverbs 14 and we’re going to look at verse 12.

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

Why are the ways of man the ways of death? When the ways of man don’t agree with the ways of God then they are the ways of death. I don’t think many Christians understand that when we do things that are in opposition to God’s word we are producing death in our lives. It may not seem like that is what we’re doing but slowly and surely the more we stand in opposition to God’s word the more we open the door for the enemy to come in and sow death into our lives.

There was an article on Christian News about a commercial that’s promoting same-sex marriage and it includes President Obama, former First Lady Laura Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney and former Secretary of State Colin Powell. I’m going to read a portion of this to you. The advertisement is produced by the Respect for Marriage Coalition and, I quote, features clips of past comments from various political leaders in an attempt to demonstrate that both Democrats and Republicans support homosexual “marriage.”

Let me read Proverbs 14:12 again – “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

“None of us would want to be told that we can’t marry the person that we love,” the ad begins, showing men and women embracing each other. “That’s why a growing number of Americans believe that it’s time to allow marriage for gay and lesbian couples.” If this is true, I know where the growth is coming from. It’s coming from those 18 to 30 years old who never had prayer or bible reading in their schools.

Let me continue. “When couples are committed, then I think they ought to have the same sort of rights that everyone has,” former First Lady Laura Bush states. Now listen. I want you to hear what she said. “When couples are committed THEN I THINK.” Proverbs 14:12 – “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” When the former first lady said “I think” she was stepping away from what God says.

“Allowing them to live together with the protection of law – it seems to me to be the way we ought to be moving in this country,” says former Secretary of State Colin Powell. “It seems to me.” There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

“Freedom means freedom for everyone,” comments former Vice President Dick Cheney in a snippet lifted from his speech at the 2009 National Press Club.

The advertisement concludes with President Obama’s address during the inauguration. “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law,” he declares. I know I’m being redundant. Proverbs 14:12 – “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

President Obama, former First Lady Laura Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney and former Secretary of State Colin Powell, you are on the wrong side of this issue. I have no disrespect for any of you, but you are on the wrong side of this issue. The word of God clearly states that God created them male and female. The title of tonight’s message: “Male and Female Created He Them.”
