The interest in marriage has been greatly increased of late because of the cultural battle to legitimize so-called “gay marriage.” As a result, many Christians can easily describe what a marriage is but can they describe what marriage is from a Biblical perspective? The unbiblical idea pushed by homosexual activists that a family consists merely of two people who “love” each other could be the tool that God is using to guide His church into a cogent and clear position on what marriage actually should be.

Earthly marriage is, in one great sense, about neither the bride nor the groom. The purpose of marriage, when placed in the context of God’s redemptive plan, is more about making us holy than making us “happy.” It is a way in which God reveals Himself to us. More on biblical marriage tomorrow.
