More of President Obama’s Legacy

by Ken Ham on November 19, 2015

I know America’s a different country. Nonetheless, there’s no doubt that President Obama’s legacy is leading the way to force gay “marriage” in a big way on the rest of the Western world. And because the issue of gay “marriage” has been so commonplace recently, it is easy for us to become complacent and blasé about it. But we shouldn’t be, as this is a serious sin against God and against the family the Creator instituted that is being promoted by an increasing number of leaders in different countries—as they follow the USA’s lead in this evil matter.

Same-sex Marriage

Well, nearly six months after a national referendum in Ireland that legalized gay “marriage,” the first Irish marriages have now been celebrated.

As I wrote back in May, this national decision to legalize same-sex “marriage” reflects a continued secularization of the Western world, and it breaks my heart to see people rejecting Jesus Christ and His Word. Our culture is increasingly turning away from any resemblance of a biblical worldview and is instead simply doing what’s right in its own eyes (Judges 21:25). And once you reject the biblical worldview, why shouldn’t marriage just be whatever you want it to be? Without an absolute foundation for morality, who’s to say what’s right and wrong? Sadly, since our culture has rejected God’s Word as our authority, morality has quickly become just this—whatever they think is right.

The only solution to this decline is the gospel of Jesus Christ. And this news is just another reminder that it’s the gospel that changes hearts and minds for now and for eternity. As Christians, we need to be bold in standing firmly on God’s Word from the very beginning and sharing the gospel with others.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
