Why Marriage Matters
Marriage and its definition are very much in the news right now. We are not interested in entering a political debate. Since we are believers in God and His Word we are happy to allow God to define marriage. It is clear from Genesis that men and women are different and intended for marriage,
“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 then closed up the place with flesh.Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. 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.” That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:21–24 NIV11-GK)
What concerns us much more than defining marriage is saving, strengthening and supporting marriages. The pressures of life and the complexity of human relationships puts all marriages at risk from time to time. All six congregations that make up the London International church of Christ provide teaching and events designed specifically to enable married men and women to enjoy the full fruits of married life as God intended it to be.
