A ruling is expected by some today. By others it is expected to be shuffled off to the legislators to decide at their convenience. It is worth noting that if a ruling is made one way or another it in no way changes the legality before God. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t think our state has any business condoning, codifying, affirming or any other “ing” regarding gay marriage. Marriage is a man and woman. Gay marriage is not marriage. If the state rules in favor of gay marriage it doesn’t mean it is right. It just means we will have a tougher time teaching our children right from wrong. If for instance, the state were to rule that stealing $10 would not be considered a crime, it wouldn’t change that it was stealing. And it wouldn’t change that I must teach my children that stealing is stealing no matter what the value.
God made us, and He made a ruling on the subject. Our laws do not supercede His laws, so wouldn’t our society be a lot easier to live in if we aligned our laws with His? I think this is what our nation’s founders envisioned.
This are a few verses from 1 Timothy chapter 1, referring to Moses’ Law but they seem to present some truth in this situation also.

“We know these laws are good when they are used as God intended. But they were not made for people who do what is right. They are for people who are disobedient and rebellious, who are ungodly and sinful, who consider nothing sacred and defile what is holy, who murder their father or mother or other people. These laws are for people who are sexually immoral, for homosexuals and slave traders, for liars and oath breakers, and for those who do anything else that contradicts the right teaching that comes from the glorious Good News entrusted to me by our blessed God.”
