Imagine the stories they must have after 72 years together. A gay couple has tied the knot after 72 years of relationship and said “it is never too late for people to write new chapters in their lives”, according to a report in the Quad City Times. Vivian Boyack, 91, and Alice ‘Nonie’ Dubes, 90, exchanged their vows at the First Christian Church in Davenport. “This is a celebration of something that should have happened a very long time ago,” the officiating reverend told them.
‘The officiating reverend’ is a woman
You Keep Using That Word, I Do Not Think It Means What You Think It Means
There are a lot of people who are taking the lesbian couple’s long-term ‘love’ as a sign that somehow validates its legitimacy. As if the fact that it has lasted so long makes them question whether, homosexuality may be OK after all.
But what it should tell us is how powerful sin is. Sin in general already has all people who are not ‘in Christ” (1 Corinthians 15:22). If one is not in Christ, they are ‘in Adam.’ But for some who have a particular sin they refuse to give up, in this case, lesbianism, if they refuse to repent, God gives them over to it.
because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; (Romans 1:25-26)
That’s all this ‘marriage’ is an example of.
As for the officiating reverend, 1 Timothy 2:11-12 says women are not to lead in the church. Hunsacker’s particular sin is rebellion against male authority, alternately, a failure to submit to the authority of scripture and its male head, Christ. The fact that she has gone so far in it- to bible college, seminary, ordination, and employment, is another example of disobedience where her mind is so seared she does not know right from wrong. Ergo, officiating at a lesbian marriage in a church that has both Christian and Disciples in its name.
