God established marriage at the beginning of time (Gen. 2:18-25). He provided a mate for Adam in the person of Eve, not Steve. During the personal ministry of Jesus Christ He spoke of the Heavenly Father establishing marriage. The Son of God declared:

And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, 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? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder (Mat. 19:4-6).

Notice His emphasis upon male and female: not male and male, or female and female. In fact, the apostle Paul speaks of such intimate relations between those of the same-sex as “vile affections.” Those who become sodomites or lesbians have departed from God.

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet (Rom. 1:24-27).

Whether or not a government official recognizes the so-called same-sex marriage it remains an abomination to God. He destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah because of that heinous sin (Gen. 19). A nation or a state might recognize the relations between two people of the same-sex as a marriage, but God does not. The apostle Peter emphasized when laws of an earthly government conflict with God’s laws then we are to obey God rather than men (Acts 5:29). Just because a society and/or government recognizes a particular thing does not mean God approves of it.

Even though Herod had married his brother’s wife according to the laws of his government, it was not a marriage in the eyes of God. This is pointed out in the following passage: “For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife: for he had married her. For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother’s wife” (Mark 6:17-18).

Thus, in the eyes of God there is no such thing as a same-sex marriage.
