Weddings: Wacky, Wrong, and Worthy!

The U.S. Supreme Court used its combined wisdom to redefine marriage which it had no authority to do since God decided on marriages long before any judge, bureaucrat, state, or nation existed. Marriage has been on a slippery slope since God performed the first wedding ceremony in Eden to Lamech taking a second wife to […]

Use a Covenant Not State Contract For Marriage!

Some critics tell us that to reject the state’s involvement in marriage is disengaging from the culture; however, to do so is obedience to Scripture in that we become salt and light. Most Christians are sugar and provide a feeble, flickering, faltering light. The church is supposed to impact the culture; however, in recent years, […]

Biblical Marriage, Not Polygamy, Polyandry, Polyamory, Promiscuity or Perversion is Acceptable!

In Cana of Galilee the marriage feast lasted three days and Christ put His blessings upon it and the importance of His appearance cannot be emphasized too much for us today. However, neither government nor religious institutions were involved. For Christian marriage requirements I should add Christ to consent, commitment, consummation, and communication. The Bible […]

Taking the State Out of Marriages Could Not Make it Worse!

The state should not permit or prohibit a marriage except when the best interest of society is at stake. Such exceptions would be when underage children want to marry. Then statutory rape and other laws would kick in. If family members wanted to marry, incest laws would be invoked. If the severely mentally handicapped want […]

Marriage License Was to Permit Interracial Marriages!

Marriage is a right, not a privilege granted by the state. At state-approved weddings you have the bride and the groom but also the state as partner to the contract. The state gives permission to marry because you asked for that permission. So don’t ask. You don’t need the state’s permission to do what is […]

Marriage Makes Rude, Crude, and Lewd Men into Softies!

Marriage for centuries has made rude, crude, and even lewd men into softies and developed a stable, normal, decent society where women are cherished and exalted and children are trained and protected–until recent years. Marriage and the family survived 6,000 years, yet in the last 60 years both have been damaged, denigrated, almost destroyed; however, […]

Marriage: Consent, Commitment, Consummation, and Communication!

Marriage is consent, commitment, consummation, and communication. You can’t have a genuine marriage without all of them. It is not marriage if there is no consent (of the couple and until recent years, the fathers). Without commitment, even a state-approved wedding is simply a “living arrangement” that is sorry, sordid, and sad–also sin. It is […]

Stable Homes Produce a Stable State!

Get government completely out of marriages! Many think that is very revolutionary; however, historically, marriage was always a family affair–not church, not state. Furthermore, getting the state out of marriages would not change the daily living of most people. Those living right would continue to do so and those living like barnyard animals would continue. […]

Marriages From Ancient Times Were Family, Not State Approved!

Marriage and the family are under attack from hedonists, homosexuals, and humanists as well as the courts; however, they have attacked an institution of God. Silly people! In Luke 30:20 Jesus said, “And Jesus answering said unto them, the children of this world marry, and are given in marriage.” Furthermore, He was a guest at […]

Pastors Refuse to Sign State-Issued Marriage Certificates!

The Bible teaches that “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge” Heb. 13:4. That verse is true whether it is believed or not. Marriage is God’s business, but was taken over by the state with the consent of pastors; however, the state should have nothing to […]
