An Obvious Truth: The Bible Supports Traditional Marriage

From Dr. John Mark Reynolds and Scriptorium Daily.

“Both the Bible and Newsweek make assertions about marriage and homosexuality. The difference is that the Bible claims to speak for God while Newsweek simply asserts things on its own authority.

While we represent very different faith traditions, we agree that the Bible is a trustworthy guide for humanity and that gay marriage is inconsistent with its teachings.

Second, that even if the Bible is taken seriously, traditional American family values cannot be found in it.”
