  • Marriage is under attack from the outside and from with-in My story about uncle alan How it has hurt our family over the years Feel passionate its not what is wrong about divorce but what is right about marriage.
  • Marriage is under attack. The institution of marriage is threatened by sexual alternatives like free sex and the continued sexual revolution of the 1960’s , homosexuality, divorce, common law, adultery, pornography. Marriage is also under attack from with in, husband run to passivity or aggression, the wife wants control, financial problems, disciplining children ect
  • Because of sin and our hard hearts, we have changed the meaning of marriage to suit our own whims. While current statistics are alarming, this is not a new problem. I suggest it is the churches Victorian modesty has undermined the truth of marriage and the beauty of sex in the marriage context. Sexual abuse in the christian home a serious problem in the Amish community, the marriage perversion of the Mormon Church and the recent news of sexual abuse within the fundamentalist Mormon sects in Texas. I will admit sexual abuse in residential schools, the issue of celibacy for priests, the clergy abuse news headlines are all representations of how the church has failed to lift up marriage to the place God intended.
  • This is not a modern problem, it transcends cultures, Trobish notes that it is just as difficult for African parents to teach their children about sex as it is for those of us in western nations. My wife and I spent two years living in a small city in the oil region of western PA. we were daily interacting with the neighbor hood children. I recall overhearing one six year old boy tell my 5 year old son something about sex. He came to me asking what is sex. My answer stumbled out, it begins with a mommy and daddy kissing. I still find it difficult to talk about sex to my children.
  • We quickly hide The beauty of sex in marriage, and Gods Idea of marriage and sex. But this is not a new problem. Notice Jesus words in matt. 19 From the beginning it was not that way. Recall the facts of Genesis 3 how after Eve and Adam chose to disobey God and eat, their eyes were open, and with shame they noticed their nakedness. But from the moment of their creation till the fall, Adam and eve existed is a glorious nakedness the was free of shame, guilt, perversion. I love the description of Gene Edwards in his book “The divine romance” he proposes that Adam and eve were clothed in a radiant light.
  • From the beginning, God had a reason for marriage. Marriage is God’s idea. If we are going to understand God’s idea of marriage, we need to start with God’s word. I believe marriage is Gods invention to each us about who he is Marriage is more about our understanding God than a positive institution for the development of children. It is imperative for children to have the influence of a godly mother and father, but more than that God deigned marriage to help us understand him.
  • This is a profound mystery, but I am talking about Christ and the Church. I believe Paul is alerting us to the importance of Marrage. It is more than to facilitate a godly offspring. Marriage is a model of what the trinity looks like, it is a model of what the church is like. Marriage is a model for our relationship with Jesus. Marrage is a sample of how Christ loves the believer and how the believer is to respond to Christ. The issues of Love and submission or love and respect are formost issues of how we relate to Jesus and then secondly how husbands and wives are to relate.
  • Then it is no wonder, with all that significance that the institution of marriage is under attack. If satan can destroy marriage as a model of Christ and the church, if he can get husband and wives to miss the greater significance of their roles in eternity, if Satan can separate the issues of love and respect from our relationship with Jesus. If Satan can get 1 cor. 11 to be an objective all of its own and loose its symbolism then he has accomplished much by destroying the very foundations of marriage and beyond. He has directly attacked God by insulting the very vehical God has chosen to help us understand his relationship with us.
  • One could spend time looking at the parallels to the Jewish wedding and salvation. Just as the bride groom would leave his fathers house to retrieve his bride, Jesus left his fathers house. Just as the wedding party returned to the Grooms home for the wedding feast, we will be caught up with Jesus our bride groom to celebrate the wedding feast of the lamb.
  • Marriage is God’s idea and it permeates scripture. Malachi 2: God hates divorce, he hates breaking faith with the wife of your marriage covenant. Why because marriage is a symbol of Gods relationship with the Israelite people in the Old testament
  • When we look at what God says about marriage we find it is an Old testament type and figure. The language of God as a husband to the Israelites surfaces through out the OT. Isa, Jer, proverbs 21:9, hos. 2:19,
  • Marriage is a new testament symbol, Eph. 5, Rom. 7, Jesus and the parable of the 10 attendants. Jesus parable of the marriage of the kings son Matt. 22:1-14, His participation at the weeding in Cana.
  • Marriage is an eternal representation. Our reward in heaven is pictured as a marriage feast. Not as an eternal choir in the sky.

  • Gen. 18 The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” 19 Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field. But for Adam no suitable helper was found.
  • 21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. 23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” 24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh
  • . 25 The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.
  • God saw that it was not good for adam to be alone. Can two walk together except they be agreed? Amos 3:3
  • This is where the church needs to take back marrage. Scripture records the phillistine king seeing Issac and rebecha sporting or caressing and new they were married This is a tuogh one for me, I am very reserved, I think the church needs to adress the issue of godly sex and maybe this is as good a place as any, any coments?
  • Sex is worship Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.
  • 7 Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers.

Why did you say, ‘She is my sister’?” Isaac answered him, “Because I thought I might lose my life on account of her.” 10 Then Abimelech said, “What is this you have done to us? One of the men might well have slept with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us.” 11 So Abimelech gave orders to all the people: “Anyone who molests this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.” Genesis 26:6-11
