A baseball club would want to have a manager who loves baseball and knows its history and how its played. Having someone who doesn’t really like baseball and is there for the money will cause poor operations of the club. So the club’s selection committee seeking a new manager would ‘discriminate’ between those who love and know baseball and those whose heart is elsewhere. This is reasonable and practical. A person who loses interest in baseball should go and join another sport club, not try to change the club to play a different sport. The best wedding cake for a homosexual couple would come from someone who is also enthusiastic for homosexuality, not from someone forced to make the cake because of some ‘law’. ‘Shop’ around! Making a law to force someone to do something they don’t like gives the ‘game’ away doesn’t it?
From the Bible viewpoint (not the ‘Bibles’ based on Gnostic beliefs) we see God putting two people, both made in His image, on this planet. From the start one was male and the other female.
God said to them to fill the planet with their offspring (children). To accomplish this we have male and female persons. Their differences were complementary, where the female bares the baby while the male supports her.
Why did God set this up? The context of the creation chapters is the conflict between God and a created being, Lucifer, who thought that he could do God’s job and maybe a better job. This problem reached a stage where, after a lot of angels had joined Lucifer, both Lucifer and his angels were barred from entering God’s Tabernacle because they had passed the point of no return. God wanted to refill the positions that the fallen angels had abandoned (Jude1: 9). The Genesis creation event was a special creation event for creating the replacement persons, not for making the universe (read the first 48 pages of the EGW compilation, ‘The Truth About Angels’ to check this out. Doing the Bible support is another comment, which I can do if you want).
We are told in Psalm 8 that we were made a little lower than angels, but Jesus said that when He comes that we would be changed to being EQUAL to the angels (Mat 22:30, Luke 20:36). There would be no longer any marriage because the original purpose of having male and female was fulfilled in having sufficient people to replace the fallen angels. Asking for ‘equality’ in marriage for homosexuals doesn’t make sense because marriage is the human term for the mating process as we see in nature. Only a male and female couple can do that. It would seem that after Christ coming there would be no male or female?
God could have just instantly created new angels. However, we see throughout the Bible that God compares Himself with either the male or the female. God was using the male and female / child relationships to illustrate to the universe how He looks after all creation. Of course, the fall of Adam and Eve disrupted, but did not stop God’s plan.
Naturally, the fallen angels were not happy about us taking over their places in God’s Tabernacle and Lucifer in particular is not happy about us being on thrones (Mat 19:28). In any case Lucifer/Satan hated anything that reminded him of God. With the fall, Satan knew that Christ would be coming to be a human. So Satan and his angels would want to stop us having children or if we do destroy them physically or spiritually.
How do you think that the LGBTQ, gender identity issue, abortion, feminism/women’s liberation fits into this scenario? Remember that the original plan was to have enough descendants of Adam and Eve to fill the vacancies in His Tabernacle, change them to be as angels and put them into the Tabernacle. Having and raising babies was central to this plan. The female had the top job, which wasn’t painful or limiting etc as it became after the fall. Keep in mind also that Lucifer wanted to be EQUAL to God, which could remind you of things that are being said today?
