The Rubicon of Homosexual "Marriage"

"Homosexual marriage is the Rubicon that biblical Christians may not cross under any circumstances."Gavin Ashenden
When Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon river in 49 BC, it marked a turning point in the history of the world. For Caesar, there was no turning back. When Christians cross the Rubicon of homosexual marriage, they leave the "One holy, catholic, and apostolic Church" in which they once professed belief with every recitation of the Nicene Creed. Unlike Caesar, they can cross back over their Rubicon, but how many will do so? Inebriated with the power of going along with the masses, it is unlikely that they will submit themselves to the rule of Christ.

Those of us who continue to blog about same-sex "marriage" are often told to shut up and accept defeat. If we give up the fight and stop discussing the subject, no one will hear the good news that there is a better way and that Jesus told us this when he preached about the male-female relationship.
 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘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.” Matthew 19:4-6
 If no one reminds former Christians of these things, few will turn back from their march towards the decadent future that awaits those who cross the Rubicon of homosexual "marriage".

So, we must continue to shout in order to be heard over the roaring waters of this modern day Rubicon in hopes that some might cross back over to Jesus' side.

John Frame of the Reformed Theological Seminary puts it this way in his review of Al Mohler's "We Cannot Be Silent: Speaking Truth to a Culture Redefining Sex, Marriage, and the Very Meaning of Right and Wrong",
"For all of this, the rebuke we receive in the title of Mohler’s book rightly commands us to action. I hope that the Christian community will hearken to it. As Christian citizens, we must bring God’s word into the present deplorable situation, lest we be prevented from speaking it at all."
