Outcomes of Ignoring God’s Blueprint for Marriage

juvenie1l

The biblical blueprint for marriage and family is being cast aside quickly. How should we respond as the people of God? We must be concerned with what God has said – even if it means that we are going to be mocked by the world and be considered a minority. It is not uncommon for people to make comment and note that it is unusual to see a husband and wife fulfilling their God given roles (; ) and to see children respecting and honoring their parents ().

The foundation of any society is the family. The moment the family unit begins to break up or cease to function the way God intends, it wont be long before there are ramifications in the family and ultimately in society. As you begin to destroy the authority structure and blueprint for a godly family, destruction comes to society. If you remove authority from a family, you remove authority from society. If authority is removed from society eventually you end up with anarchy. If there is no authority structure and everyone has an equality of function, then you will have a group of people without absolutes doing what they want.

Biblical marriage is under attack. These attacks undermine God’s intention for marriage. Consider the following examples. Continue reading

22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.

25 Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26 that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. 28 In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, 30 because we are members of his body. 31 “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” 32 This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. 33 However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

18 Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. 19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.

6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise), “that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

Why Marriage is Important?

Wedding

What is the secret to a long and vibrant marriage? One couple was asked this question and the man was quick to answer. He said, “We take time to go to a restaurant twice a week – a little candlelight, dinner and soft music in the background – then a very slow walk home. She goes Tuesdays and I go Fridays.” Is that the secret to lasting marriage? The word of God has something very different to say.

Back in we read these profound words, “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh“. Here we have the institution of marriage and a Divine declaration of what marriage is. As I said in an old post, marriage is “between a man and a woman with the purpose of procreation (), pleasure (), partnership () and productivity ().”

Marriage is something that God has established. It is not an invention of the church nor is it something reserved for conservative Christians. Marriage is an institution that God has ordained and is grounded in creation. When God made male and female He intended for them to be married. Marriage provides many benefits of a spiritual, sexual and social nature. God ordained it and views it as important and precious. Sadly, many in our society do not share this view. Continue reading

24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

18 Let your fountain be blessed,
and rejoice in the wife of your youth,
19 a lovely deer, a graceful doe.
Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight;
be intoxicated always in her love.

18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”

28 And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

Abortion and Animal Rights

I took this photo while I walking through Box Hill Centro. I don’t have a big problem with animal rights, and have no problem with the bank putting these posters up. This is not a rant against either of those two parties. I come in peace.

I have some observations to make about another issue.

1. There are about 250 babies killed by medical professionals in Australia . . . each day. That equates to 80,000-90,000 abortions a year. In Australia. Modern, civilised, “progressive” Australia.

2. Many of those abortions were government funded, through Medicare. Your tax money goes towards the killing of babies, and the active promotion of abortion. Our nation is corporately complicit in this.

3. If the poster above had a premature baby being held by a doctor, or a mother, but still said “Give me a voice”,  it would be condemned as insensitive, politically incorrect and deceitful. There is no way that a bank would display that poster.

4. We care more about animals than human babies.

5. I conclude that we are a very confused, and morally corrupt generation.

God says we are not to murder. Our nation, is complicit in the murders the most helpless and vulnerable in our society. God have mercy!
