Marriage – What did we lose?

My Wonderful Bride and I
My Wonderful Bride and I

We have lost a word, marriage.

Let’s use a different word.

We have not lost the holy union of a man and a woman in the sight of God and man.

We have not lost the bonds of love that stand strong together against the onslaught of the world, the flesh and the devil.

We have not lost the superior supernatural strength of a three stranded cord, Christ, wife and husband, bound together by commitment and devotion.

We have lost a word.

So let’s get a new word.

We don’t have to tell anyone else about it, but we’ll know.

    this is soooo good! Totally agree...we think alike. I love this..every Christian needs to see this and chill out. Theymforget, we are in this world but not of it...we can't expect others to uderstanding until they have their eyes opened.....a new rock Ben!

    Like so many words in our language the definition of marriage has been changed by the culture. Love, truth, freedom are other examples. The things is a thing is not really defined by us but by its created nature and God sets that in eternity. In the end it doesn't really matter if we redefine a thing we didn't make it so we don't have that right. Marriage will be marriage no matter what the supreme court says and love will be love even if Tina Turner tries to turn it into a "second hand emotion".

    Personally, I think it's great that people who love one another will attempt, (as we heterosexuals have), to commit to holy matrimony with those whom they love instead of living a life of promiscuity and risking disease, etc. We were certainly not very successful at marriage; perhaps the gay community will do better than we did. Either way, I believe I will leave it to God to judge when the time comes.

    Wise post Ben. I'm not located in the USA, but we are headed down the same path here in Australia. The meaning of marriage may be changing, but the covenant between Christ and His Bride is not and never will. We, as that Bride, need to focus on what that covenant between He and us actually means and how we live it out in union with Him, and to shift our focus off what the world is doing. Two different things in my opinion.
