By making that statement, I assume then that you are a Christian?

Matt 19:4(KJV) And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,
5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
Just wondering why you as a Christian believer would take a contrary position than what is written in the book of our faith that the author of, spoke in the above lines?
Marriage was created by God between one man and one woman. That is the unwavering Christian position for the last 2000 years or so.
Hebrews 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
Why would you support the position of those who God is eventually going to judge and destroy? Homosexuals do not enter into the kingdom of God as the Bible makes crystal clear.
1Cor 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
I can understand why a non-Christian would support gay marriage. I do not understand the position of those who claim to be Christian, that would support gay marriage.
Taking a position against gay marriage as a Christian has nothing to do with judgment. It has to do with discernment.
From personal experience, I have told a number of people I have genuinely cared about, that gay marriage is wrong when they decided to accept and proceed with that lifestyle. And because of my Christian position on this moral value, I lost them as friends and was considered a homophobe and a person to be avoided. I told them out of love because I believe in the Christian God and I believe God is righteous.
Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death
, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
When I stand before Christ on judgment day and just say He asks me, "So you claimed to believe in me, yet you supported all those things which I detest and even told others that there was nothing wrong with those actions?" I can honestly answer Christ back and say, "I told them what you claimed in your Word as truth because I believed your Word and I loved them, and they rejected me."
I hope you can do the same cnk 12, take a stand and be bold on judgment day, if you are indeed a Christian.
