Bernie Cochran in his May 4 Point of View “Using selective literalism” on the Bible and same-sex marriage reflected his lack of understanding of the Bible.
He said that Jesus did not declare that same-sex activity is wrong. But the Bible very clearly states that every word in the original text was God-breathed and men wrote as they were moved along by the Holy Spirit. Jesus is God as is the Holy Spirit.
The rest of his argument appears to be an attempt to muddy up the sound doctrines of Christianity in hopes that those people not well-versed in the Bible will begin to have doubts about its validity on what God has said is right and what is wrong.
The professor might well be right about the Supreme Court deciding to approve same-sex marriage as the law of the whole country. That court has held that children in the womb are not persons and may be aborted by the mother on demand. But God has told us that each baby in the womb is a person being “wonderfully” made, meaning like all human beings in overall aspect but uniquely different from all others in detail.
