Dalrock commenter RachelS writes something interesting:
You’re wrongly assuming that society will see the errors of its ways once they realize that it isn’t raking in taxes or birthing more taxpayers like it would if society was traditional. Why? Because Satan is the ruler of this world (Ephesians 2:2).
Destroy the family, destroy society.
Satan is the father of lies (John 8:44) (you can find happiness in frivorce or pump and dump) and is here to steal, kill and destroy. (John 10:10)
God created women because God saw that it was not good for man to be alone (Genesis 2:18) and also commanded us to be fruitful and multiply (Genesis 9:7).
For every guy who has become disillusioned and decided he doesn’t need a woman because it is too much of a risk or low ROI, you have bought into Satan’s lies that your plight is hopeless and that trusting in God to bring a suitable mate into your path is wishful thinking. So will I believe Satan’s lies or trust that if God commands something, that He’ll make a proper way for me to be able to be faithful and obedient?
God loves us and knows that families are the strongest foundation for society. Satan has done an effective job at chipping away at the foundation and it won’t get better (until Jesus comes back) but I’m not going to throw in the towel. I’m not going to let Satan keep me segregated and alone, without a partner and from birthing and bringing up Christian children. No matter how bad society gets, I won’t let Satan steal my potential for joy within a marriage.
Feminism and society won’t get better, but I won’t let that hold me back. (Ephesians 6:12 )
Sounds pretty good, right? It does, except for one thing. Let me explain. Let’s say you do something for me and I pay you with this:
So what’s the problem? My money’s good. The economy’s going to go into free fall and it’s going to be cataclysmic if you don’t take my money. So take my money. You won’t? Why? It’s not really money, is it?
There’s much effort expended to make sure money isn’t counterfeited. A counterfeit is a lie, right? And as RachelS aptly states, isn’t Satan the father of lies? Satan is a master liar, including counterfeiting.
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)
This blog talks much about Marriage 2.0 and the changes involved. So why are people so ready to accept this counterfeit of Satan, like Rachel S and many others I’ve run into, even assigning “marriage” to be a blessing from God, and even teaching that it is a sin to not be married? It is a great deception that Satan has created:
People buy into the counterfeit as the real thing
So what is the real story? Let’s see:
Does God bind husband and wife or does the State?
Does God approve of the divorce culture where women may blow up marriages for any and every reason?
Does God approve of remarriage or does He call it something quite different?
(I can keep going, as the chart illustrates)
And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter. And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery. (Mark 10:5-12)
Marriage 2.0 is not marriage! It’s a counterfeit!
These hypocrites harping on “the sanctity of marriage” need to pull the plank out of their own eyes! A great many of them are truly deceived, but many can read the Scriptures and continue on defending “traditional sex roles”, which are feminist sex roles. They go on defending “marriage”. They call themselves pro-marriage and pro-family, yet are doing Satan’s work to destroy both:
Sure, you’ll see references to Marriage 2.0 elsewhere, but there’s no recognition that Marriage 2.0 is *not* real marriage. Face it, Marriage 1.0 died about 100 years ago when the State assumed it. If you are married, if you will marry, you are entering into Marriage 2.0 – it doesn’t matter what you believe. So you get a number of people who see problems simultaneously speaking against and defending marriage – double-minded hypocrites who defend Satan’s creation, while Satan himself cackles with glee.
Perhaps this is the problem with the version moniker, it allows people to rationalize that “marriage” has anything to do with God or has any of His blessing on it. It allows people to be blind to the true profane evil that “marriage” is today.
The only answer is to repent by stepping away from the lie, and burn the false garbage. There are people that are truly deceived into thinking that “marriage” is righteous and holy. Then you have the double-minded people that see there is a problem but defend it anyway and say “things aren’t that bad”, just as I illustrated in the case of Malachi and sacrifices. Malachi did not seek to abolish the sacrifice, but to abolish the false sacrifice.
Stop offering the blind. Stop offering the sick. Stop offering the diseased. Stop supporting this vile counterfeit called “marriage”. Stop doing Satan’s work, by supporting feminism!
