Brittney Rossie LLC Policy on Gender, Marriage and Human Sexuality
This Policy on Gender, Marriage, and Human Sexuality (the “Policy”) of Brittney Rossie LLC., a digital design business (“Brittney Rossie” or the "Business”), describes the foundational beliefs underlying the Policy (sometimes herein, the “Beliefs”). The Policy is part of the Policy Statements of the Business.
Biblical Beliefs on Gender, Marriage and Human Sexuality
I believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Gen 1:26-27.) Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person. Any attempt to reassign one’s biological sex is incompatible with Biblical Christianity.
I believe that marriage is an institution ordained by God from the foundation of the world, and intended as a lifelong union of one man and one woman, based on the teaching of the Scriptures in both the Old and New Testaments. This idea is supported by the account of creation in Genesis chapters 1 and 2.
Genesis 2 provides a more detailed account in which God created the first man, Adam, and decided that it was not good for him to be alone. (Genesis 2:18). God indicated that He would make “a suitable helper for him.” God brought all of the animals to Adam, but none of them was a suitable helper for him, so God then created Eve, the first woman, from part of Adam himself. God did not create a second man to be Adam’s helpmate, or an assortment of multiple women, but rather one woman. Together they were man and wife and had “no shame” or sin in their union with each other. (Genesis 2:15-25).
Jesus Christ reaffirmed the teaching of the Old Testament when He said, as recorded in Matthew 19:4-6, “Haven’t you read, he replied, that at the beginning the creator made them male and female and said for this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
The Apostle Paul states in Ephesians 5:22-32 that marriage is not merely a human institution, but is a divine metaphor that is supposed to illustrate the union of Christ and the church. For this reason also, only a union between a man and a woman can be a proper marriage because a union between two men, two women, or one man and multiple women or any collection of people could not properly illustrate the relationship between Christ and His church.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 lists a variety of sexual practices that are incompatible with Biblical Christianity, including those associated with adultery, prostitution, and homosexuality. The Bible condemns all forms of sexual immorality (sexual practices outside of a biblical marriage) and encourages Christians to flee from it because of its destructive effects (spiritually, personally and relationally), and because the body of every Christian is the temple of the Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 3:16 & 6:12-20).
Romans 1:18-32 makes it clear that it is not only sinful to engage in homosexual unions, but it is also sinful to approve of such sins in others or to encourage their practice. As a result, in order to maintain my consistent Christian witness, I cannot sanction, approve, or promote in any way adultery, fornication (a sexual relationship between an unmarried man and woman; i.e. “living together”), pornography, pedophilia, polyamory, polygamy, incest, bestiality, homosexual practice, or any other expression of sexual intimacy outside of a biblical marriage.
Brittney Rossie, as a Christian business owner, follows what the Bible reveals as the "sure foundation" of the teachings of Jesus Christ and his apostles (Matthew 7:24-29 and I Corinthians 14:37). Brittney Rossie, as a Christian business owner, is called to teach and practice these teachings and is not at liberty to depart from them for a different authority if she is to bear authentically the name of Christ. The biblical position outlined within these Beliefs about such issues has been clearly and uniformly held by the true church since its inception, even as the beliefs and preferences of those outside the church have varied widely and changed regularly. Because of our current society’s attempt to redefine marriage and normative sexual behavior, our need to set forth in writing what has always been the church’s (and this Order’s) position on such issues has become apparent. Though we strive to live peaceably with all people and to obey legitimate government authority, we must ultimately obey God rather than man whenever the two come into conflict, and this is particularly true in instances involving matters as foundational as marriage, gender, and proper sexual practices (Acts 4:18-22).
As the above teaching makes clear, all sexual activity outside of a proper, biblical marriage, including but not limited to fornication, adultery, incest, homosexuality, lesbianism, pedophilia, polyamory and bestiality are sinful and inconsistent with the teachings of the Bible and the Order. Lewd conduct, transgender behavior, and the creation, distribution or viewing of pornography are sinful and incompatible with God’s intention.
As a result of these above-described religious beliefs and my belief in the need for the practices of the Business to align with these beliefs, I cannot approves of, solemnizes, supports or allows a same-sex union, a polygamous union, or any union which, in the sole and absolute judgment of Brittney Rossie, LLC, in some way constitutes child abuse or legitimizes sinful practices.
No employee should allow their creative expression to be used in any way that will solemnize, promote, create, or approve of such a union, nor should they enter into such a union, without being subject to the discipline of the Business.
A civil government’s sanction of a union, or that of another ecclesiastical or other body, has no bearing on whether the Business should recognize it as a legitimate marriage.
Despite our unequivocal call to holiness and purity, even as Jesus’ followers, we do not always live in accordance with God’s perfect will. There is an “already, but not yet” nature to our present experience in His Kingdom. Still tempted by the world, the flesh, and the devil, we sometimes yield to temptation. It is comforting to remember that God is always ready to forgive. He extends grace to the humble and repentant (James 4:6).
I will likewise cultivate a spirit of grace and forgiveness, and I will seek to reconcile brothers and sisters who have fallen into temptation with Christ. Reconciliation requires humility and repentance, rather than an attitude of rebellion and stubbornness, and I will continually exhort one another to submit to God in all things.
As a Christian business owner, I am called to hold these Biblical precepts in tension and to make sometimes difficult determinations that reflect both the grace that we receive daily and the standard of holiness to which we are called.
