Dr. Garlow: "Satan Using 'Gay Marriage' To Destroy Image Of God"

Speaking at the Sixth Annual Family Leadership Summit on Saturday, nationally renowned evangelical pastor and best selling author Dr. Jim Garlow explained how man and woman are created in the image of God and that gay "marriage" is "demonic" because it perversely mimics and mocks God's design for love and children, and seeks "to destroy the very image of God upon the planet."

We will not be publishing this column tomorrow and Friday. I'm out of the office and will return Monday.

However, I wanted you to be aware of the forceful comments Dr. Jim Garlow shared earlier this week on perhaps the most pressing and damaging cultural issue of our times. An issue that some evangelical leaders are now saying should be put aside---it's time to move on---the debate over same-sex relations and marriage is over.

It isn't over because it is fundamental to God's creation of male and female and His relationship to the Christian Church.

During his remarks, Dr. Garlow said, “We have male and we have female. We have Adam and Eve, two entities that houses many. The word used in Hebrew is ish and ishah -- man, woman, ish, ishah."

"There’s one letter in ish, a Hebrew letter, that is not in ishah," said Garlow. "That letter is y or yod. There’s one letter in ishah that’s not in ish. That letter we would call it h or hey. Yod, hey. Yod, hey. You put male and female together, ish and ishah, yod hey – that’s the name for God. That’s the foundation name that appears 6,800 times in the Hebrew text. Yod hey, it’s the name Yahweh."

He continued, "You know, when you have two men, you don’t have that. When you have two women, you don’t have that. It’s when male and female come together, they now formulate the full image of God. In what way are they made in the image of God? What did God do? Among things, He created."

"Now they start creating, they procreate," said Pastor Garlow. "They’re walking in the image of God. That’s the book of Genesis. The Bible starts with the marriage of a male and a female, and it ends with the wedding in Revelation of a bride and a groom."

“The bottom line is this," said Dr. Garlow, "if I were Satan, I would want to destroy on the Earth the image of God. This is why marriage is such a hotbed issue. It’s more than just the issue of homosexuality. It’s much more than that. It’s much more cosmic. It’s big, it’s enormous."

"They want to destroy the very image of God upon the planet," he said. "This is a demonic happening in our midst.”

There's more. I would strongly recommend you read the rest of his comments, they are challenging and informative.

Be Informed. Be Vigilant. Be Faithful. Be Prayerful.
