Gay Marriage, Why Not
By Linda C Dipman

    Twenty years ago I had a supernatural experience when the Holy Spirit came into my life and I fell madly in
love with a woman.  I was jailed, injured, and robbed of the custody of my children, all because of  love.  My
parents, church and friends completely abandoned me and made me feel ashamed for being gay.  Today I
look back at everything I suffered and thank God for everything I learned.  God took my persecutions and
taught me to look at the world as if it were a multi-faceted game of life.

    Good Christians have been deceived by church doctrine, false teachers, and religious organization.  All
because these pious religious people find it easy to read the scriptures in the Bible, but they leave out the
supernatural interpretations of the Holy Spirit.  Too many churches ignore the Spirit of God and the truth that
it reveals, because it is all about the unseen and not how you are really suppose to live your life in the
concrete physical world of our existence.

    This is the reason why many churches have abandoned homosexuals; because it is easy to allow people
to read the words and interpret them according to human concepts and not according to the Spirit.  For
instance, when God condemned Sodom and Gomorrah many people think it was because of homosexuality
when it was really about them completely abandoning their faith in God.  They not only forgot God, but they
practiced ritual sexual acts before demonic gods.  

     2 Peter 2:6, "God condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, destroying them with fire, and made
them an example of what will happen to the godless."

    When God completely turned my world upside down and showed me the persecutions all gay people face
from their families, church and society, He taught me about the purpose of this world.  He did this by making
me go back to the very beginning of creation and the story of Adam and Eve.  When Adam chose to eat the
apple he allowed sin into the world.  Satan is the demon of sin and he tempts people to abandon God for the
things of the world. Read Genesis 3: 1-7 it tells you how our once perfect earth changed when Adam and
Eve wanted the knowledge of God.

    These scriptures along with many more opened my mind through the Holy Spirit to see the world as a
game.  A world where people are presented with choices leading them to answer the questions of what is
right and why wrong decisions can lead you down evil paths that destroy not only your life, but even the
condition of the world.  That is the reason why our world today is full of wars, injustices, sicknesses, and
suffering of all kinds.  This is the reason why we are fighting global warming and a sudden shift in our climate
that is radically changing the weather.

    When you are in a world game of life their must be a clear difference between good and evil.  Satan
became the god of this world.  Satan introduced sin into human beings lives and as a result he fights against
everyone that tries to follow God.  This is the reason why our world changed from perfection into a wicked
and deprived world.

    1 John 5:19, "We know that we belong to God even though the whole world is under the rule of the
(Satan) Evil one."

     When people are following Satan and the world, they are abandoning their faith in God.  God loves
people and God is love.  His will for people is to teach them how to live a righteous life in an evil world ruled
by Satan. The only way to learn these principles is by being presented with controversies that teach us the
difference between love and hate.  

    Of course it is only natural when you live in a teaching world that people are going to fight against anyone
that tries to love.  This is the reason why interracial marriages have been condemned in the past.  This is
why foreign marriages cause controversy and pain for those who feel that couples should not marry unless it
is within their own race.  Even devote Christians can be lead astray by false teachers to persecute loving
homosexual couples.  Satan fights against love, but God uses the Holy Spirit to teach people that love
supersedes every scripture, every person's religious doctrine, and of course any person who teaches you to
hate people who are in love.

    1 Timothy 4: 1-5, "the Spirit says clearly that some people will abandon the faith in later times; they will
obey lying spirits and follow the teachings of demons.  Such teachings are spread by deceitful liars, whose
consciences are dead, as if burnt with a hot iron.  Such people teach that it is wrong to marry and to eat
certain foods.  But God created those foods to be eaten, after a prayer of thanks, by those who are believers
and have come to know the truth."

    This passage is not about food it is about God accepting everyone. God wanted to establish strong loving
Christian marriages.  Marriages that equipped two people to standup as a united force against the temptation
of Satan.  Couples who will fight together as they play their game of life to win for the side of God.  
Remember God is love and to love is to imitate Him.

    When you are in a life game you will be tested in the world in order to come to revelations over injustice,
crime, wars, sicknesses and of course every kind of evil that normally comes into people's lives.  God wants
us to freely make good choices that lead us down paths of love.  He wants us to overcome the evil
temptations of the world and love people.

    2 John 1: 4&5, "And so I ask you dear Lady: let us all love one another.  This is no new command I am
writing you;  it is the command which we have had from the beginning.  This love I speak of means that we
must live in obedience to God's commands.  The command, as you have all heard from the beginning, is that
you must all live in love."

    Our diversity in who we love teaches us the difference between love and hate.  For instance, I was raised
in a very religious family where being a homosexual was completely and utterly not accepted.  If God made
me gay then why would He put me into a family that would not accept my lifestyle?  It all comes back to the
fact that we live in a world ruled by Satan and naturally the devil fights against love.  The devil infiltrates
churches while convincing them they are in the right to persecute people who love.  While God clearly states
that His only command is that all people live in love.

    2 Peter 2: 1&2, "False prophets appeared in the past among the people, and in the same way false
teachers will appear among you.  They will bring in destructive, untrue doctrines, and will deny the Master
who redeemed them, and so they will bring upon themselves sudden destruction.  Even so, many will follow
their immoral ways; and because of what they do, others will speak evil of the Way of truth."

    God came to me supernaturally because the false doctrines of the church were so ingrained within my
being that I would have never accepted being gay, if I didn't know, that it was His will for my life.  He did this
by baptizing me in the Holy Spirit and communicating to me through supernatural typed pages on my
computer that I did not type!  He had no choice but to do this, because the Religious right had so infiltrated
the church with false doctrines that no Christian was free to accept homosexual couples whose only crime
was love.

    Viewing our world in the concept of a game answers this question "Gay marriage, why not?" Our country
must fight for strong married couples and give them the right to legally marry.  Every couple should have the
protection granted to all married couples under the legal laws of their country.  Laws that give them the right
to take care of their mates when medical decisions must be made.  Rights to bury their loved one without
interference by families, society or church. The right to walk hand and hand down the street without fear that
prejudice will destroy their union that was established by God.
