Letter to the editor: The truth of the Bible is not in HJR-6

Friday, December 13, 2013 - 12:01 am

We are commanded to love. We are commanded to be obedient. We are called to correct those who are in error to the truth. Standing for truth is right. It can be tough and sometimes lonely.

Jesus Christ is the truth. The inspiration of the Holy Spirit to the writers of the New Testament is the truth. And the direction of our father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, to instruct the writing of the Old Testament is the truth.

With indignation and then sadness, several times I read the letter entitled, “City clergy stands against HJR-6.” The truth is not in them. Truth from the God-inspired Scriptures shows us marriage is one man and one woman.
