"When God created mankind, He created both male and female. He started with two complete single human beings and made a family. Then, God performed the first wedding ceremony. Following their marriage, it is recorded that they had sons (and we assume daughters).
The establishment of the family begins with a man and woman. God tells mankind to reflect His image and to replicate by giving birth to children. God then tells us that we are to rule the earth as a family under His sovereignty. This is God's definition of family. The role of Government is never to redefine what family is, but simply to support and protect what God has established.
As we head into this new year, let us return to God's view of the Family and worship Him for what He has done. For the next 3-4 weeks, we will be looking at God's Sovereign rein over the world and His purpose and establishment of marriage, and family as He has defined it."
26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them.
28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
Genesis 1:26-28 (NIV)
