In my previous exposition, Ten Reasons Why a Christian Should Never Attend a Homosexual “Wedding,” I cataloged a series of arguments, painting a picture of how such events are an abomination in the eyes of God. The list, although somewhat extensive, only skimmed the surface of this deep-seated issue, which is rooted primarily in spiritual defilement, but also in societal moral decay.
This discourse was intended as a guide for those navigating the precarious waters of familial and social pressures, offering a biblical perspective to stand against the tide. Each point, though briefly touched upon, is a doorway to a more profound truth that reveals the stark contrast between godly holiness and deviant sexual behavior. In this series, we’ll delve deeper into each reason as we aim to shed light on the God-hating nature of such ceremonies, and the imperative for those who follow Christ to unequivocally reject and stand apart from such defilement.
In this first part, we’ll talk more about such an ungodly union as a contradiction of the biblical doctrine of marriage.
In today’s social climate, the institution of marriage, as biblically ordained, faces not just a challenge, but a potential collapse under the weight of postmodern reinterpretations. As decreed in Genesis 2:24, the sacred covenant where a man leaves his father and mother to unite with his wife, forming an inseparable bond, stands supreme in the biblical hierarchy of human relationships. This divine blueprint, unambiguous in its simplicity and profound in its depth, has weathered centuries, serving as the bedrock of societal structure and spiritual symbolism.
However, the sanctity of this God-ordained institution is now being contested by waves of contemporary ideologies that promote every kind of aberrant sexual union under the sun, save a marriage between one man and one woman. Attending a homosexual wedding isn’t a mere social formality or loving gesture—it’s a profound statement, a declaration that tacitly endorses a model of union that is indecent and impure.

The beating heart of this issue is not intolerance or lack of compassion, as many conclude. Rather, it’s about fidelity to the unaltered Word of God. Though it has been treated as such by contemporary idealogues, the biblical doctrine of marriage is not a relic of the past that is subject to revision with every wind of social change and rebellion against the Creator. It’s a timeless decree, resilient and unyielding in the face of cultural redefinitions.
To partake in celebrations that validate relationships condemned in Scripture is to pollute the pristine stream of biblical doctrine—it’s an active engagement in blurring the lines of God’s commandments. It’s a lot like how the Israelites’ worship of the golden calf in Exodus 32 was an affront to the Lord’s command to have no other gods. In doing so, we echo the errors of ancient Israel, intertwining with practices that the Bible explicitly denounces.
The Apostle Paul, in 1 Corinthians 10:21, warns believers not to partake of the table of demons after partaking of the Lord’s table, stressing the incompatibility between fellowship with Christ and fellowship with darkness. Similarly, James 4:4 declares friendship with the world as enmity with God, which tells us that one cannot be a partaker of both without deeply marring the purity of faith.
By aligning ourselves with such wickedness, we risk not just personal spiritual defilement but also contributing to a broader erosion of scriptural integrity within the body of Christ. In 2 Peter 2:1-2, the apostle speaks of false teachers who secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord—our actions and associations can either fortify the church’s doctrinal purity or, conversely, introduce elements that lead to its gradual decay.
The purity of biblical marriage doctrine is not a trivial matter, to be compromised or negotiated. It reflects Christ’s union with His church—holy, unblemished, and set apart. To stand by this truth is not an act of hatred, intolerance, or judgmentalism. Rather it’s an act of allegiance to the supremacy of Christ and authority of the scriptures, and a testament to the unchangeable nature of God’s Word amidst an ever-changing world.
As believers firmly rooted in the Scripture, the call is clear. It’s a call to uphold the sanctity of biblical marriage, to resist the tides of cultural compromise, and to stand, tireless and decisively, for the truth that has been entrusted to us—no matter how counter-cultural or unpopular it may be. In doing so, we honor not just God’s ordinance, but the Creator Himself, who designed marriage not just for temporal joy, but as a symbol of His eternal covenant with His own bride.
