Statement on Supreme Court Decision
Statement on Supreme Court Decision on Same-Sex Marriage
The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday, June 26, released its decision legalizing same-sex marriage across the United States.
Even with the Supreme Court’s decision, the Seventh-day Adventist Church maintains its fundamental belief that marriage was divinely established in Eden and affirmed by Jesus to be a lifelong union between a man and a woman.
While the church respects the opinions of those who may differ, it will continue to teach and promote its biblically based belief of marriage between a man and a woman.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church believes that all people, regardless of race, gender, and sexual orientation are God’s children and should be treated with civility, compassion, and Christ-like love.
More information on the Adventist Church’s belief on marriage can be found at http://www.adventist.org/information/official-statements/statements/article/go/0/marriage/30/
