1,000 billboards to defend biblical marriage

10 posts in this topic

Dick and Betty Odgaard, the Grimes, Iowa, couple who used to run a wedding venue – until a lawsuit from a “gay” couple forced them to shutter their business – have now embarked on a new endeavor to get out their Christian views of marriage: a billboard campaign that promotes godly unions as one man to one woman.

And they’re planning to put the message on 1,000 billboards across the nation.

So far, only one billboard has come to fruition due to the Odgaards’ efforts – in Durant, Oklahoma.

But their website, God’s Original Design Ministry, is promising more are on the way.

In a Facebook post dated July 28, the couple wrote: “Billboard #1 went up July 24., 2015!! It’s a 14′x48′ lighted beauty located on US 69/75 greeting north bound traffic 5 miles south of Durant, OK. This billboard is funded 100% by … your generous donations. One down and 999 to go for 1,000 points of light. Thank you and God bless!”

So, they are putting up 1,000 billboards to prove they don't know the first thing about biblical marriage.

:chuckle:

LOL, Most of the characters in the bible had multiple wives. 

They need to amend the billboards to reflect that fact, or simply acknowledge that they don't actually read the bible they are trying to force down everyone's throat.

At least they are smart enough to know the difference between a man and a woman. :roflmao:

The bible is full of contradictions. That's all I can say on the subject as far as many had multiple wives.

If you have come across areas in the Bible that appear in contradiction try applying the principals below.

Contradictions in the Bible?

The Bible’s answer
No, the entire Bible is harmonious. While some passages might seem to show the Bible contradicting itself, they can usually be understood correctly by applying one or more of the following principles:

Consider the context. Any author can appear to contradict himself if his words are taken out of context.
Consider the writer’s viewpoint. Eyewitnesses might describe an event accurately but not use the exact same wording or include the same details.
Take into account historical facts and customs.
Distinguish between the figurative and the literal uses of a word.
Recognize that an action may be attributed to someone—even if he did not personally carry it out. *
Use an accurate Bible translation.
Avoid trying to reconcile what the Bible says with mistaken religious ideas or dogma.

As far as having multiple wives in the Old Testament it was not a sin but it was not encouraged either. Every time multiple wives are included in scripture it turns out badly.  in the passage below, not to gather up silver and gold, how's that working out for us?

Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold. (‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭17‬:‭17‬ ASV)

That's funny.  If god didn't want two men to fall in love then why was god okay with King David having an adult homosexual relationship with Prince Johnathan, and why was god okay with Jesus having a disciple who was comfortable lying on his lap.  Let's also not forget that when Jesus was taken he was found with a young man wearing only a flimsy sheet.

 

I don't know where you got your info from but it's not in any Bible I have ever read.

 

:picard-facepalm:

Number one, have you read those books with the rainbow covers on them, no wonder those poor people can't tell which way to lean, I weep for the species.

Just checked out Solomon, wisest man on earth, how did having hundreds of wives work out for him?  Sad story....

Actually, Sparkles is onto something.

David's praise in 2 Samuel 1:26 for Jonathan's 'love' (for him) over the 'love' of women is considered evidence for same-sex attraction, along with Saul's exclamation to his son at the dinner table, "I know you have chosen the son of Jesse - which is a disgrace to yourself and the nakedness of your mother!" The "choosing" (bahar) may indicate a permanent choice and firm relationship, and the mention of "nakedness" (erwa) could be interpreted to convey a negative sexual nuance, giving the impression that Saul saw something indecent in Jonathan's and David's relationship.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_and_Jonathan#Homoeroticism

Whether they were gay or bisexual, the Bible is fairly explicit that they were a partnered same sex couple. They are said to love each other, their love is described with the same Hebrew words used to describe the love of opposite sex married people and King Saul believed they were having a sexual relationship which he described with a Hebrew vulgarism in 1 Samuel 20:30.

In a eulogy before his troops after Jonathan's untimely death in battle, David himself describes the intensity and endurance of his fifteen year long loving partnership with Jonathan.

Those who insist that David and Jonathan were not gay or bisexual keep telling us David could not possibly have meant what he said about his relationship with Jonathan.

http://www.gaychristian101.com/could-king-david-have-been-bisexual-instead-of-gay.html

Heterosexual, bisexual, homosexual: Jesus could have been any of these. There can be no certainty which. The homosexual option simply seems the most likely. The intimate relationship with the beloved disciple points in that direction. It would be so interpreted in any person today. Although there is no rabbinic tradition of celibacy, Jesus could well have chosen to refrain from sexual activity, whether he was gay or not. Many Christians will wish to assume it, but I see no theological need to. The physical expression of faithful love is godly. To suggest otherwise is to buy into a kind of puritanism that has long tainted the churches.

http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/belief/2012/apr/20/was-jesus-gay-probably

And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him: and he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.
Mark 14:51, 52

actually sparkles is onto nothing. All taken out of context. And the sources you quote are not sources.  God is against homosexuality it says so in his Word. No amount of manipulation of the scripture and convincing yourselves and others it is right is going to change the facts. Deep down inside those who practice it knows that it is wrong and so they try and justify it anyway they can, because it trashes their soul to the core.
