Same Sex Marriage - The World’s Most Nefarious Sin


By Thomas Golda


2015 - The U.S. Supreme Court makes same-sex marriages legal in all 50 states in Obergefell v. Hodge


What we do know from the Bible is that no man knows the day or the hour of Christ's return - Matthew 24:36.  We can never know the day or hour, or even any specific year.  That information is kept only to God Himself.  The Bible does say to be aware when "it is near" and "at the doors." - Matthew 24:33


Sin has always existed since the beginning.  But certain sins did not.  Homosexuality has always existed, but gay marriage as the "law of the land" in many countries of the world, did not exist.


Records of same sex marriage go back to the first century AD in Rome. However, there was no legal provision for this in Roman law.  In 342 AD, Rome "banned" any gay marriages that people were doing of themselves.  So, not only was marriage never the law of the land in Rome, they banned it in 342 AD with extreme punishment for violators.  In ancient Greece, many same sex unions took place in ancient Greek writings, however, in none of these same sex unions is the Greek word for "marriage" ever mentioned. It never was the "law of the land" in ancient Greece.


Same sex marriage was never the "law of the land" in ancient Sodom.


In the Middle Ages in Europe, same sex marriage was frowned upon.


In Native America, tribes had same sex unions, but no documentation that same-sex "marriage" existed.


In 2001, the Netherlands became the first country on earth to legalize same sex marriage


Today there are near 30 countries that have legalized gay marriage as the law of the land, including the USA.


The Babylonian Talmud and Midrash, were ancient Old Testament commentaries going back over 1500 years.  They would be similar to commentaries that Reformers have done on the Bible based on the information they had in their respective days.


According to the Babylonian Talmud and the Midrash, there was only one time in history when gay marriages were the “law of the land.” It was the final sin right before the flood of Noah’s day:


"The GENERATION OF THE FLOOD was not obliterated from the world UNTIL they wrote MARRIAGE CONTRACTS FROM MALES and beasts” Genesis Raba 26:5 - Midrash Rabbah


“These are the thirty commandments which the children of Noah accepted upon themselves, but they only keep three (of them) – one, that they do NOT WRITE A MARRIAGE CONTRACT FOR MALES” Babylonian Talmud Hullin 92a-b


The ancient Old Testament commentaries going back 1500 + years indicate the Gentiles at the time of Noah's day had 30 laws but only observed three of them. One of them was "not" making "gay marriage" legal. Why did they consider these three to be so important? Because violation contributes to the destruction of the world. "Gay marriage" which goes beyond homosexuality in general, was the "forbidden sin" that they did not engage in, and the point they did engage in it, the world of the day ended...


What all of these sources suggest is that in the rabbinic mindset giving societal recognition to same-sex marriage is among the most egregious violations that human beings can commit. Marriage between members of the same gender, however, goes beyond forbidden sexual acts between individuals to the level of societal approval of this sin. When sin is no longer recognized as sin by a society, the rabbis would assert, that society loses its right to existence – like the generation of the Flood, or the defeated Egyptians and Canaanites, such a society deserves to be swept away….


But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” (Matthew 24:37-39)

Just a quick note on this subject.  The drug companies are helping perpetuate this sin by offering false hope to sodomites that they can take an HIV drug and still continue on in their deviate lifestyle.  These drug ads are regularly on TV and give the impression that all is well with them as long as they take their drug.  As Tom has stated above, no one knows the day or the hour when the Lord will return because that is the end of life and the beginning of eternal damnation for the unsaved.  Instead of seeking the Lord, they are garnering more sins that they will have to give an account for on Judgment Day.  They are all smiles on those commercials but there is no smiling in hell!
