"God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve." This is a very powerful statement referring to marriage between same-sex couples. Marriage is a very meaningful action when it comes to religion, and it shouldn't be taken lightly. Today I will be telling you about the Bible verses that refer to gay marriage, important people in the political world's point of view on this issue, and the effects same-sex marriage will have on the country. Gay marriages are morally wrong, and I think that this issue needs to be taken seriously.
According to the Bible, the issue of same-sex relationships was addressed several times. God decided that Adam needed a "helper." Some translations use the term "companion," "helpmate" or "partner" here. God marched all of the animals past Adam, looking for a suitable helper, but none was found. So God put Adam to sleep, removed one of his ribs and created Eve from the bone. Although this implies a cloning operation, it obviously was not, because Eve turned out to be a female. If either Adam or Eve were homosexual, the human race would not have developed. Thus, God obviously needed to create both Adam and Eve as heterosexuals, so that they could be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth with humans. God stated in Verse 18: "It is not good for the man to be alone" (New International Version). This shows the importance that God gives to committed relationships. For a heterosexual, the only suitable companion is a person of the opposite gender. For a homosexual individual, the only suitable companion is a person of the same gender. To say that gays and lesbians should not form committed relationships is to say that it is good for people to remain alone. This is a direct contradiction of God's statement; it implies that God is a liar. Genesis 2:23-24: "The man said, 'This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh'.For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife and they will become one flesh.
