We believe God's plan for human sexuality
is to be expressed only within the context of marriage,
that God created man and woman
as unique biological persons
made to complete each other.

God instituted monogamous marriage
between male and female
as the foundation of the family
and the basic structure of human society.

For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively
the union of one genetic male and one genetic female.



We claim Biblical authority for this view through:
Genesis 2:24 Genesis 2:24 (close)

That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife,
and they become one flesh.

Matthew 19:5-6 Matthew 19:5-6 (close)

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother
and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’
So they are no longer two, but one flesh.
Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.

Mark 10:6-9 Mark 10:6-9 (close)

But at the beginning of creation God made them male and female.
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,
and the two will become one flesh.
So they are no longer two, but one flesh.
Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.

Romans 1:26-27 Romans 1:26-27 (close)

Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts.
Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones
In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women
and were inflamed with lust for one another.
Men committed shameful acts with other men,
and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

1 Corinthians 6:9 1 Corinthians 6:9 (close)

Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God?
Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers
nor men who have sex with men



YET

Is "Biblical Authority" sufficient, or any, justification?
Such religious concepts were created to ensure
the proliferation of the species
and the growth of the tribe or nation.

These ideas were formed to ensure replacement of
the manpower lost in war, or in childbirth.

These, very practical, principles are now used
to attack those of a different sexuality
and serve to ensure further growth
of an overswollen population.

Such attacks derive from fear of difference
by those stuck in their own shells and
unable to see that the views of others
replicate "love" as Jesus loved,
independent of sex or sexulaity.
