First, this is not my article. I shouldn't speak for Ridenhour, but I believe the important element that must be understood is when he says, " Scripture reveals that marriage is either legitimate (within God’s approved design) or illegitimate (in violation of God’s approved design)
"Words" are so important and how we use them is so important.
Take for example the word "Racist". Should we use the Dictionary Definition, or how people use the word to understand the word.
Steve, are these 14 words "Racist" to you? "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White Children"
I'd be curious your answer.
The ADL and the SPLC just recently labeled a "White Lives Matter" community to be on their 'hate list' and labeled the group "Racist". They also say the 14 words are Racist.
But what about Black Lives Matter? How come this group is not on that list...........as an example.
Being now a "Race Realist", I am proud to be Caucasian and for the rest of my life, I will do everything in my abilities to promote the 14 words. Does this make me Racist because I love my racial family and wish to see her prosper and survive.........so be it.
Back to Ridenhour........................
I personally wouldn't use the word "Marriage" or "Married" in this fashion. People are just too programmed in how they understand this word.
I heard a Tv Chef say the other day -- A Remoulade is the perfect MARRIAGE between a quality Mayonnaise and Mustard.
Marriage -- To Mix. "Marry" the ingredients together. Let the marinade to "marry" overnight.
Sexual Intercourse is the MARRIAGE between Two Flesh becoming One Flesh. This is not open for debate. "One Flesh" is only and SOLELY the result of sexual intercourse.
A married woman who commits adultery has "married" her flesh to another man. When a Virgin Girl has sexual intercourse, she just 'married' her flesh to his. She is now 'joined' as one flesh to the man. She is now 'known' by the man. This is how Ridenhour should phrase it in my opinion.
