Marriage will be Satan’s final delusion on this earth before the reign of the anti-Christ. Bestiality, incest, pedophilia, and polygamy will become culturally accepted sexual practices, if not legal “marriages.” Homosexual “marriage” is already legal in many nations. Thanks to the UN, more will be forced to accept it. Will marriage exist at all during the anti-Christ’s reign? Or will his Babylon look like the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, as portrayed in John Huston’s “In the Beginning” (1966)? When the destroying angels approached these cities, they found people practicing sex with anyone and anything at all hours of the day.
France decriminalized homosexuality in 1792, Russia in 1917. Both governments wanted to get rid of God. Homosexuality was illegal in “Christian” America though. People used to be arrested for sodomy. Then one state after another decriminalized it, starting in 1962. All sodomy laws were abolished after Lawrence v. Texas (2003). Homosexual “marriage” first became legal in 2010. It’s now legal in seventeen states.
Many Christians rightly believe that making homosexual “marriage” legal will pave the way for legalizing bestiality, incest, pedophilia, and polygamy. The moral slide is already taking place in California, Massachusetts, and Utah. Still, decriminalizing a sexual act is not the same as making it a legal “marriage.” It took nearly 50 years for homosexuality to make the switch. How long will it take for states to make these other types of fornication legal “marriages”? I don’t know.
In California, homosexuals have begun persecuting straight married people in their own homes. “God hates heteros” is their message of choice. This phrase is a lie, of course. But will the state codify it? Will traditional (biblical) marriage become illegal, or at least culturally unacceptable, here in America? The media is already ridiculing Olympic gold medalist David Wise for his “alternative lifestyle.” This young Christian man is married to a woman and has a daughter. Will young men and women be forced to marry in secret one day? I don’t know.
Most Americans think abortion is legal thanks to Roe v. Wade (1973), even though it is Congress that makes laws. The government still does not dictate the number of children per family, as China and North Korea have done. Voluntarily getting a “legal” abortion, even if under pressure, is one thing. Having the state conduct an abortion because a woman has had the maximum number of children is another. Whenever the state comes after babies, the people of God are in trouble. Moses was hidden from Pharaoh, Jesus from King Herod. During the Reformation in Europe, believers hid their babies from the Catholic state to avoid infant baptism. I believe that before the anti-Christ’s reign, women will again be forced to hide pregnancies and babies.
Why is the collapse of traditional marriage happening so fast worldwide? Why does the state even care? The communist UN hates God. But like God, it wants total control. Reducing world population is one way to accomplish this goal. Abortion, contraceptives, and euthanasia are the quickest methods. Homosexuality takes longer. People don’t die of AIDS overnight. Still, this is why the UN seeks to change laws and public opinion, via both media and formal education.
When darkness swallows the earth, the light of Christ must shine through believers. First, we must save sex for marriage. Second, we must practice marriage as God has defined it: one man and one woman for life (Genesis 2:20-24, Matthew 19:4-6). Fornication and adultery are sins that God will judge (Hebrews 13:4). Third, we must rear our children to know, love, and worship Christ (Proverbs 22:6, Malachi 2:15, Ephesians 6:3). The Duggars and Robinsons are teaching and practicing these truths. I pray that others join them.
