One man and one woman

The Scripture says:

(Gen. 2:24, NASB)

"For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh"

That verse provides the biblical pattern for gender, sexuality and family relationships. It has been programmed into the DNA of the human race. Yet today a growing number of people who dismiss the Bible as myth are demanding that our culture exchange God's fundamental truths for a lie. And some mainline churches, swayed by secularist pressure, are opening their altars for same-sex weddings because they don't want to be viewed as intolerant prudes.

My belief is exactly this, that marriage/Holy Matrimony is for one man and one woman.
Oh, but some might say this is completely not biblical, many men in the bible had multiple women. Yes this is true but besides not being accepted in society it is also what the Apostle Paul said about this in his letter to Timothy

1 Timothy 3:2 (CJB)

“A congregation leader must be above reproach, he must be faithful to his wife, temperate, self-controlled, orderly, hospitable and able to teach. “


Also we read in Proverbs 18:22 (KJV)


“Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favor of the Lord.”


It does not speak in words of plurality but in the singular form of wife.


Man Woman ChildAlso, the words of Genesis as discussed earlier say “ Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife” It does not say wives, but again singular wife.
All these verses speak of man and woman.
The Bible says about other situations


Leviticus 18:22-23 (AMP)


“You shall not lie with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination. 23 Neither shall you lie with any beast and defile yourself with it; neither shall any woman yield herself to a beast to lie with it; it is confusion, perversion, and degradedly carnal.”



1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (CEB)

“ Don’t you know that people who are unjust won’t inherit God’s kingdom? Don’t be deceived. Those who are sexually immoral, those who worship false gods, adulterers, both participants in same-sex intercourse, 10 thieves, the greedy, drunks, abusive people, and swindlers won’t inherit God’s kingdom.”


Romans 1:26-28 (CEB)

That’s why God abandoned them to degrading lust. Their females traded natural sexual relations for unnatural sexual relations. 27 Also, in the same way, the males traded natural sexual relations with females, and burned with lust for each other. Males performed shameful actions with males, and they were paid back with the penalty they deserved for their mistake in their own bodies. 28 Since they didn’t think it was worthwhile to acknowledge God, God abandoned them to a defective mind to do inappropriate things.”


"The path to overcoming sins, including those of homosexuality and sexual impurity, whether they manifest physically, spiritually, or emotionally, lies in the transformative power of confession and repentance. In Christian doctrine, repentance is more than mere regret or a superficial change; it is a profound and complete turning away from sin, a 180-degree turn towards a new way of life under God's guidance.
Jesus casted out a legion of daemons into the swine and healed the paraplegic.
He will certainly be able to heal those and forgive those who are caught up in sexual sin as lust, immorality and abominations.
We need to welcome all sinners in the house of God, providing them a way out of sin into a life of Christ and Holiness.
