New campaign sets goal of restoration of marriage
A new campaign has been launched to restore across America the traditional definition of marriage, and the leaders of several major Christian organizations who are supporting it say they are taking their marching orders from the Old Testament’s relatively obscure story of the Tower of Babel.
In Genesis 11, even God was concerned about what the people, who shared a language, could accomplish when they agreed to plans to “build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven,” according to the King James Bible.
“And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do,” explains verse six. So God decided to “confound” their speech, so that such a project would not be accomplished.
Kenneth L. Hutcherson, senior pastor and co-founder of Antioch Bible Church in Kirkland, Wash., told WND that while rebellious Old Testament people posed a threat to build a tower to heaven, right now Christian people, working together, have the chance to restore marriage, defined as one man and one woman, to the nation. His comments came in an interview where he said it’s not surprising that the secular world would try to redefine marriage to include same-sex duos.
