Preface: “Have I not written to you excellent things of counsels and knowledge, that I may make you know the certainty of the words of truth, that you may answer words of truth to those who send to you?” (Prov. 22:20, 21, NKJV).
The high number of homosexual unions around the world should come as no surprise. More and more people have become accepting of this. It is common to see young mothers struggling to educate their children alone, homosexual couples seeking to rear sons and daughters, wives and husbands living separated, and abandoned children.
And, further, we have changes in dating behavior. To caress and kiss someone that you just met at a party is considered normal to a lot of people—even teens and younger. It works in a destructive way: You look for someone who interests you, use her or him however you wish, for whatever length of time that suits you, and then just leave. There is no respect, no loyalty. This is the diagnosis of a sick race. Sick from its origins in Eden. The human race has forsaken their beginnings. They have forgotten their Creator. My law professor says that there is no absolute righteousness but different kinds of understanding of this term. With this kind of thinking, the real truths regarding the Sabbath and marriage have become desecrated and rejected by society.
God’s Word is unchangeable (Matt. 5:18). His Word shows His character. Many have tried to make some changes in His Word to suit their own desires. As Christians we should seek biblical instruction and live in conformity with God’s desires for u (John 17:17). Satan, a master strategist, has corrupted two God-given institutions: the Sabbath and the family.
Family is a divine gift that is facing a terrible crisis. If the situation is difficult for we who have such a great Christian hope, think of a child of a divorced couple who has two homes—or consider the child who has no home at all! We know that our home is not here and we have a loving Father waiting for us to live with Him for eternity. Our duty is to share this balm to the suffering souls of our culture, to point others to a home in God’s family. We have the obligation to make the world aware that Christ is returning to restore the human family.
