“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
The Word of God declares in Genesis 1:26-27 (above) that man…male and female…is created in the image of God. And the two became one flesh (Genesis 2:24). The Word of God clearly presents God’s exclusive definition of marriage: one man and one woman.
In our days, the “image of God” is being attacked by the tsunami of “legalized” (in whose eyes and by whose law?) homosexual marriage. We, Adam’s race, are shaking our fist at our Creator and spitting in His eye.
By saying “God is not afraid of new things” when speaking of the deep divide in Roman Catholic Church leadership over homosexual marriage (of which he is in favor), Pope Francis mistakenly thinks:
1) God changes His mind, morality, and Word. Yet the Bible says, “For I am the LORD, I change not.” (Malachi 3:6)
2) There are such things as “new things.” Yet the Bible says, “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” (Ecclesiastes 1:9)
3) New is good. Yet the Bible says, “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.” (Jeremiah 6:16)
The man is a false teacher, misrepresenting the Almighty God.
To those in the Roman Catholic Church, Jesus is saying to you, “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” (Revelation 18:4) Do not hestitate…flee!!! Flee to a church that teaches the entire counsel of God, from Genesis to Revelation so you will know what the unchanging God says. The Word of God is the Truth (John 17:17, John 14:6).
