Same-Sex Marriage from a Christian Perspective

This morning, the Supreme Court began hearing three cases that may drastically modify the definition of the term "marriage" in the United States. The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the cases of Obergefell v Hodges, which is consolidated with three other cases (Tanco v Haslam - TN; DeBoer v Snyder - MI; Bouke v Beshear KY). The challenge is concerning the Fourteenth Amendment and is arguing that it guarantees the right for same-sex couples to marry.

Many Christians are feeling uneasy about this type of decision, and it is important to understand why. An attempt at redefining terms drastically alters our portrayal of the gospel, as Christians must profess that marriage was created by God and has a specific purpose.

Here are some great articles that help understand the Supreme Court listening to same-sex marriage cases from a Christian perspective:
