Theft of Marriage

Halt Marriage Heist I write this on Easter Weekend March 2013 anno domini Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh are incorrect when they claim that we cannot halt the Theft of Marriage heist. Rush Limbaugh is right that we have not framed the Theft of Marriage heist with proper terminology.  The effective manner of framing this is “Theft of Marriage.” Of course this is difficult to discuss and it is rife with emotion.  Anger can enter which closes our capabilities for communication with each other. In addition to Marriage, this is about Love.  We disciples of Jesus are mandated in Romans 12 to do all in Love.  I am writing this to illustrate that the greatest Love we could ever experience is available to every person 24/7/365 from first breath to last breath.  We are constantly have the Bright, White, Shimmering, Tinkling, Sparkling, Empowering, Encouraging, Love of our Creator raining down on us, gushing up around us, washing by us, and welling up within us.  Furthermore, I seek to show that this Love has guidelines for optimization that, if this heist is allowed to stay will be faux changed. The Theft of Marriage violates the Seventh Commandment of Thou Shalt Not Steal by stealing God’s Intellectual Property, Marriage.  Marriage has been defined for thousands of years throughout The Bible as the union of one man and one woman for life.  The most clear set of verses are Matthew 19:5-9 which, in The Jerusalem Bible, is in italics. Matthew 19:5-9  “Have you not read that the creator from the beginning made them male and female and then he said:  This is why a man must leave father and mother, and cling to his wife, and the two become one body?  They are no longer two, therefore, but one body.  So then, what God has united, man must not divide.  They said to him, ‘Then why did Moses command that a writ of dismissal should be given in cases of divorce?’  It was because you were so unteachable’ he said ‘that Moses allowed you to divorce your wives, but it was not like this from the beginning.  Now I say this to you:  the man who divorces his wife  …. and marries another, is guilty of adultery.'” Once stolen, The Seventh Commandment, “Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery” will seem to change.  It will appear that God is guiding us to relationships that choose homosexual unions.  This is counter to God’s guidance not only with the just cited verses, but also Leviticus 18:22, Romans 1:26-27, and much more.  This is the root problem here.  The State is reaching into the very nerve center and heart of The Church and seeking to change The Church, The Word of God, and God’s Guidance at it’s core. Marriage is part of The Word of God.  The Word of God has existed since “the beginning” and predates all States extant.  The State has used Marriage with permission from The Church.  The Church has not given the State permission to change The Church’s formula of The Sacrament of Marriage. The Sacrament of Marriage deserves at least the same protection that Coca Cola and Dr. Pepper have from each other.  Coca Cola may not use the name Dr. Pepper for product made from it’s formula and Dr. Pepper may not use the name Coca Cola for it’s product made from it’s formula.  If a different formula is going to be allowed by the State, a different name must be coined. I have suggested “Mated” as something that could be used if “Civil Unions” didn’t sound so good.  We had Civil Unions in New Hampshire and the claim for justifying the heist was that there weren’t full benefits.  That these details were still to be worked out does not justify theft. What has come to me recently along this line of thought is that the Word of God is, of course, actually a portion of God as we hear at the opening of the Gospel of John with.  So this heist is not only trying to change The Word of God but it is trying to change God. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word; the Word was with God and the Word was God. So this is not about “just words” or “just semantics,” these are more than words.  These are the Words of God.  These are God. On a more street level view, people, pastors, businesses, and churches are being threatened with allegations of “hate” and “discrimination” for living guided by God’s Guidelines.  The absurdity of trying to paint “hate” on the guidelines of our most Lavishing Lover is absurd absurdity.  The “discrimination” thing though is a bit humorous within all this angst as yes, we are asked by God to “discriminate” and choose between what we are guided to and what we are guided away from so we know how to optimize our opportunity while living. So again we have to be able to share God’s Guidance kindly and not in anger and from our weakness as fellow sinners. James 3:2  “After all, every one of us does something wrong, over and over again …” We also have to protect God’s Guidance from being muddied or changed and we have to be allowed to share this Guidance, Love, and Light. Psalm 119:130  “As your word unfolds it gives light, and the simple understand.” The Theft of Marriage is a vast violation of the separation of Church and State.  It is also unconstitutional with regards to the freedom of religion guaranteed by The First Amendment to the United States of America Constitution.  All of the state laws that have engaged in this thievery need to be challenged in court from this perspective. When we follow God’s Guidance , our lives are optimized and the ongoing creation of creation is optimized.  We develop a pilot/copilot relationship with God.  Things flow and grow well. Romans 8:28 (The Jerusalem Bible) “We know that by turning everything to their good God co-operates with all those who love him …” I pray that more and more will choose to optimize their opportunity we have while breathing and be Guided by God to go OnLine and OnVine with Jesus.  I stand for being able to have God’s Guidance protected and clear.  I stand to keep the State from putting words in God’s mouth. I hope that this effort to use the State to steal God’s Intellectual Property, edit God, and censor the Word of God is stopped, reversed, and the goods returned.  Again, all this is to be carried civilly and kindly per Romans 12 in its entirety. In all actions we are to share Jesus’ Love for each person, The Good News, and so invite them to join the joy. We originally sailed across the ocean for religious freedom and the First Amendment guarantees it.  It was worth it then.  It is worth our while still.  We need to continue framing our conversations and government structures to protect clarity for God’s Guidance. 1 Thessalonians 2:13    …. you accepted it for what it really is, God’s message and not some human thinking; and it is still a living power among you who believe it. Job 20:5    … the triumph of the wicked has always been brief, and the sinner’s gladness has never lasted long …. Psalm 33:10-12   Yahweh thwarts the plans of the nations, frustrates the intentions of peoples; but Yahweh’s plans hold good for ever, the intentions of his heart from age to age. Happy the nation whose God is Yahweh, the people he has chosen for his heritage.
