The Death of Christ - Prophecy FulfilledPierced His Hands and Feet:
Old Testament Prophecy: Psalm 22:16
New Testament Fulfillment: John 19:17-18
Gambled For His Clothes
Old Testament Prophecy: Psalm 22:18
New Testament Fulfillment: John 19:23-24
No Bones Broken
Old Testament Prophecy: Psalm 34:20 [and Psalm 22]
New Testament Fulfillment: John 19:32-33,36
Forsaken by God:
Old Testament Prophecy: Psalm 22:1
New Testament Fulfillment: Matthew 27:46
Pierced hands and feet, no bones broken, forsaken by God and gambling for his clothes... all foreshadowed in Psalm 22 and fullfilled by Jesus, as explained explicitly the the New Testament.
God's promise to David was a Christ, and David was well aware of this; thus, David foreshadowed the coming of Christ often.
To think that the OT is not messianic is ignorant. All Abrahamic religions believe such.

Regardless of the Old Testament, New Testament, Bible or any book of religion at all, you are free to have your own personal religious beliefs.
However, legally, and morally for a GREAT many people, gay rights, marriage rights, and equal rights are the issue.
Churches won't be forced to perform gay marriage. States and Governments will.
This is not a church issue, but one for the entire society.
I don't believe in the Bible and what it says. It is a book written by men, for men, and not the "word of god" no matter what god you believe in.
You are free to interpret the Bible literally if you chose, but you are not free to force those interpretation on the rest of us.
So you may say "I don't believe SSM is right for me and my beliefs" as long as you also say "but I am not going to force my beliefs on others."
The only thing psalm 22 proves about the new testament is that the people who wrote the new testament had read psalm 22. Beyond that it is such weak evidence that it is embarrassing if that's all you've got to rely on.
