Marriage Is One Man and One Woman for One Lifetime

The world today is telling us that there is nothing strange about a family consisting of two dads or two moms.  On the contrary, these ideas are very strange and will not lead to good outcomes – either for those families or for society.

God designed marriage quite simply: one man + one woman for one lifetime.  Every child needs and deserves to come into the world nurtured by a mother and father.  One of the greatest concerns Jesus showed during His earthly ministry was for widows and orphans – because these families were not experiencing the completion God desired for them.  If being the child of a single parent was all that great, why would Jesus have been concerned about it?

It is high time we adults stopped thinking of our own pleasures and focused on the children we are bringing into this world.  Wherever possible, make sure each child keeps the mother and father who brought him or her into the world.  It won’t make life easy…but it will make it easier.

    God designed marriage as one man-one woman for life? Ever actually read the Old Testament , Mike? Ever heard of Lamech, Jacob, David, Solomon?
    And don’t forget good ole Abraham who got the distinct pleasure of marrying his half sister!

    I know it must greatly pain your deluded Jesus heart, Mike, but families with two Moms and two Dads are raising happy, healthy and well adjusted children all over the world.
    You don’t get to dictate what the definition of a loving family is. And your absurdly primitive Stone Age holy book doesn’t get to either.

      Yes, I have read it. More importantly, Jesus had read it, understood it, obeyed it, and was explaining it when He gave His pronouncements about marriage. As for Abraham, David, Solomon, and others, they were commended for some – not all – of the things they did.

      I know it must greatly pain your deluded Jesus heart, Mike, but families with two Moms and two Dads are raising happy, healthy and well adjusted children all over the world.

      If such children are happy, healthy, and well-adjusted, it is in spite of – not because of – their parents splitting asunder what God had joined together.

      Jesus does. He is Lord of heaven and earth.
