“This view of marriage, apparently God’s ideal, seems to contradict a lot of what our culture thinks is acceptable or even good nowadays.”
This is an excellent point. Discussion Question (for everyone) – What is the church’s role in all of this? For example – Culturally, should we fight for the protection of God’s definition of marriage? Or is marriage defined by God as between a man & a woman and it doesn’t really matter what a law says? The focus of the church should be on sustaining marriages in the way God defined? These are difficult questions to answer but we must think critically on these issues…especially today.
