Conclusion: Male and Female, Not Just Assumed, But Required


The following three points summarize the last four emails. Each of them can be reviewed in detail by going to those pages. 

Both the Old Testament and the New Testament confirm the fact that in addition to the meaning of "kindred relations," one of the relevant translations of “flesh” in Genesis 2:24 is “body” (3.1.1). 

The statement concerning becoming one body is a statement that goes beyond bonding and can only be understood as a reference to heterosexual intercourse (3.1.3).

Members of the same sex cannot become one body (3.1.4). 


All these considerations support the conclusion that marriage as a union between one male and one female is not only assumed, it is a clear divine requirement.
