Yesterday, my church’s executive pastor, Sam Crabtree posted his thoughts about Minnesota’s Marriage Amendment.

I’m very glad he did. Pastor Sam is a great combination of Loving with Grace and Explaining Intelligently. Extremely Intelligently.

Here is just a little of it:

There are two kinds of thought: natural thought and revealed thought. Natural thought begins with human assumptions and extend from those assumptions. Revealed thought begins with a revelation inserted into the field of human understanding from outside the human race, and works outward from there.

I support and advocate one-man-one-woman marriage because we have a revelation.

Male and female—alike in many ways and unlike in many complementary ways (Genesis 1:27).
That for this cause a young man shall leave his father and mother, cleave to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh (Genesis 2:24).
that the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is head of the church (Ephesians 5:23).

Aside from other civil rights that can be provided for homosexuals—including contractual rights to share property, convey inheritances, and more—even if homosexual unions were to be legalized, they are not biblical marriages.

I recommend you go read all of it.
