To the editor:
This is in response to Dennis Dailey’s letter of May 18. Those who oppose homosexual marriages in 31 states do so because they believe marriage should be between a man and a woman. It’s not because they hate gays.
Dailey is right about the 50 percent divorce rate, even among Christians and despite the fact that God hates divorce. Godly counseling can help, but the real problem is that Christian couples don’t recognize that their real enemy is not their mate but the devil. Many people do not believe in a literal devil, or Satan. That is exactly what he wants people to believe. However, Jesus knows that the devil is real, and he knew that we would have to deal with his attempts to destroy marriage. We are given the means to be victorious in life despite Satan’s temptations, but either we are ignorant of his ways and/or the means God has provided to defeat him through spiritual warfare with the “full armor of God.”
If any of us are ignorant about God’s ways, then we can choose to accept His truth and can begin living an abundant life by faith in Jesus Christ.
My wife and I will be married 55 years in June and we tell people, “Jesus is our Superglue.” If it wasn’t for Him and God’s truth found in the Bible, we would probably be a part of that 50 percent of marriages that end in divorce. Greater is He (God) who is in us than he (Satan) that is in the world.
