Should Christians Embrace Genuine Spiritual Marriage? Civil Union vs Marriage
Can man redefine Spiritual Sacraments Ordained by God? And when the Court crosses over the line of Separation of Church and State and attempts to redefine a Spiritual Sacrament and using secular authority to impose their will upon the Congregation of Believers, is this not a modern example of where Peter stated: But Peter and the apostles answered, "We must obey God rather than men" (Acts 5:29).
For those who believe that Marriage is a Spiritual Sacrament and Covenant that can't be redefined by man, the recent ruling of the Supreme Court has tested the faithfulness to your beliefs. If it is true that Marriage is a Spiritual Sacrament and Covenant between God, a man and his wife, then the government has betrayed your trust. In the words of Jesus: "But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and join to his wife; And they two shall be one flesh: so then they are no more two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no one separate" (Mark 10:6-9). A marriage, therefore, is that sacrament and holy consecrated union that make the man and woman, "one flesh". And that few Christians today even understand the spiritual potential of Marriage, is explored in the article The Divine Role Of Woman.
Throughout my writings on the Sacrament of the Divine Marriage, I have long maintained that neither a secular or religious authority has the power to institute a Genuine Marriage that is Ordained by God -- that marriages are determined by the content and faithfulness of the heart and mind -- without which, no Real Marriage can be instituted. Further, not only does the Sacrament of Marriage have requirements to be entered into, but must be maintained in accord with Spiritual Standards. In view of the fact that the Court has moved to redefine the Sacrament of Marriage, what they have accomplished is nothing more than state licensed co-habitation and sex. And this does not in any manner constitute a marriage in the Eyes of God.
We have all seen the videos where both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have pledged their belief in marriage as a sacred union between one man and one woman. It has been asserted that in the case of Barack Obama, he lied to get elected -- and in the words of the late William Safire, Hillary Clinton is a "congenital liar". Clinton will be shocked when it is revealed to her when she passes from this life, that her and Bill Clinton are not even married in the Eyes of God. As a Sacred Covenant, if the terms of that Covenant are not maintained in purity of thought and body, then the Covenant itself is nullified and void.
From the perspective that secular authority which does not even possess the power to institute a True Marriage, and has moved to redefine a Spiritual Sacrament that they have no business of setting the terms and conditions of, the people of the states should immediately move to negate the power of secular authority to institute what they cannot institute -- and thereby enacting the necessary laws and statutes to deny secular authority the right to use the term marriage -- replacing it instead with the term "civil union". The terms of marriage must be taken away from civil authorities, and returned solely to the domain of religion. Therefore, all such unions ordained by the state and secular authorities, must be labeled "civil unions" -- with all secular authorities banned from even using the term marriage.
All people should have equal Constitutional Rights and Protections -- and therefore if a same-sex couple desire to enter into a legal union ordained by the state, this union should properly be named a "civil union". Same-sex couples are just the beginning, and this will in the future again be redefined to cover polygamy, polyandry, and eventually the union of beast and man. In Islam, a man can have -- and are encouraged to have -- as many as four (4) wives, plus concubines. And it is only a matter of time before the Court moves to affirm the right of the Muslim to practice their religion. Therefore, in view of the fact that the authorities of the state do not have the (spiritual) power to make the two (man and woman) "one flesh", they must be denied the use of that word -- which means that all state sanctified unions would be defined as "civil unions". If the perspective partners are members of a religious group that promotes the sanctity and fidelity of entering into the Sacrament and Covenant of Marriage, then it would be within the domain of the religious group to issue a Marriage Certificate (see previous articles on Marriage at LINK). In view of the fact that the the Constitution requires separation of church and state -- and the state does not have the power to either redefine or initiate the Spiritual Sacrament of Marriage -- the People must themselves move to deny the authorities of the state even the use of the term Marriage -- replacing it with the more proper term, civil union.
The scriptures are allegorical -- and when the spiritual meaning of the Genesis account of Creation is understood, what is revealed is the Forces and Laws of Consciousness that is operating within the mind of mankind. In the article on The Tree Of Life And The Divine Marriage, it is demonstrated that the fruit of the Tree of Duality (aka Tree of Good and Evil) is the divided thoughts and impressions of man and woman. And the need to merge the male and female impressions in a higher Morphic Field which creates a spiritual atmosphere and environment for the mind and being to evolve and spiritually mature, is presented to the seeker in the Gospel of Thomas saying: They said to him, "Shall we then, as children, enter the kingdom?" Jesus said to them, "When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female; ...then will you enter the kingdom." Unless this teaching that was removed from the Gospels used by Christians today is fulfilled with respect to the the eating of the fruit of the Tree of Life through the merging of the male and female columns of the Tree of Duality within the seeker, then it will remain impossible to gain entrance into the Inner Kingdom. And those people who reject same-sex unions, innately know this to be true.
From the perspective of a civil union, people have the absolute right to enter into any union of their choosing -- and no one has the right to force them to do differently. Ultimately, our Constitution provides each man and woman the right to live in accord with any philosophy or mindset of their choosing -- to the degree that they have the right to squander away their opportunity of life. Sex, and sexual expression, is not a sin, so long as it is not coerced or forced upon another individual. But when used properly within the construct and environment of The Tree Of Life And The Divine Marriage, sexual interaction between the opposite polarities of male and female is the catalyst that initiates higher development of mind and being on the "narrow way" of Enlightenment and Anointing. And no secular authority has the power to initiate and ordain a True Spiritual Marriage. Secular authorities are limited to licensing sex and cohabitation only -- and because of this fact, the unions they license should be righly limited to civil-unions.
