 Not Knocked Out

Almighty God was mocked by the decision!
What He'd set into motion was denied!
From the dawn of civilization to the present,
Man always claimed a woman for his bride.
Yes, God presented Adam with a help mate.
 For it was never good that man should live alone.
But the mate was not another male creation.
She was female ... of his flesh and of his bone.
Together they would carry out God's wishes
To subdue the land... be fruitful ...multiply.
None other copulation creates children...
What the court has deemed as marriage is a lie!
Yes, the Christian population took a hard blow!
Those who reverence God's Word are hurt, no doubt!
But the United States Supreme Court cannot stop us!
We've been knocked down but we haven't been knocked out!
Instead, this will just ignite a brand new fire!
Non extinguishable by courts of any kind!
Because it's fueled by love and flamed by deep conviction
Into a God whose Word will not be redefined!

Granted, every single one of us are sinners...
But abusing Grace is something God won't stand.
Jesus paid too great a price for our redemption
And a repentant heart is what God does demand!
When has God, in all of time, endorsed sin ever?
Just what is abomination in His sight?
We can't read His Word pretending not to see this!
And we can't change His Word to claim one's civil right!
Gay bashing has never been on our agenda
We love each and all gay persons in the world.
But we can't approve of something God's forbidden!
Guy can't lay with guy and girl can't lay with girl!
 One can't trifle with the holiness of marriage!
These sacred vows a Holy God complied !
You can legalize all of your civil unions
But marriage, in God's eyes, can't be defiled!

~~Author's Note~~

I'd like to remind everyone that even if we, as Christians,
disapprove of the sin, the lifestyle of the gay community,
we are to love them...because God certainly does...and
Jesus died for their sins. Same sex marriage is not God's plan
for mankind...and we have every right to protest it...but
let's do so with God's Word...and in love. Sometimes telling
the truth hurts people...but the truth must be told! God
gives a warning...but He still grants Grace to those who
have strayed from His Will for sex....Amazing Grace!!!
 The Blood of Jesus still works can and will
 set the captive free!

Leviticus 18:22
- Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.
Mark 10:6-9
But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections:
for even their women did change the natural use into that
which is against nature:
 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use
of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another;
men with men working that which is unseemly, and
receiving in themselves that recompence of their error
which was meet.
 And even as they did not like to retain God
in [their] knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind,
to do those things which are not convenient.
