Amusing Commercial

Remember, guys, to "count the cost"; you don't want the chivalry police to catch you looking at this one. ;-)

Yeah, I thought the guy looked kinda gay.

This is simply sad evidence that the culture does not understand the love of GOD and the glory of marriage.

True, Gary. And perhaps the culture would understand the love of God and the glory of marriage if they saw truly Godly marriages lived out in front of them, not the train wreck 'christian' marriages I've seen throughout my life.

But of the marriages I've watched, I have seen maybe 1% of them truly reflective of what I believe God had in mind when He instituted marriage.

If my experience is typical, however, culture has no hope if 1% of so-called 'christian' marriages truly reflect God-insipired union and not those of the silly and shallow emotional bondings that more closely reflect the culture instead of the character of God.

C.S.,

If only that were true. The reason why marriage is dishonored today is because of selfishness. Honoring marriage takes God to change the heart. You will either go to far one way [the way Albert Mohler and Debbie Maken do], or to far the other way [the way the feminists do]. Both are dishonoring to marriage, because both don't speak the truth about it.

On the other hand, one has to wonder which came first, the chicken or the egg. I have found myself having to resist the temptation to dishonor marriage just simply because others make it an idol. Marriage is good and desirable, but not required. We need to keep in mind that the way these folks are presenting marriage is not the way the Bible does, and hence, it is wrong to react against it by dishonoring marriage.

God Bless,

As far as going one way or the other, to be fair, you should include some representation of the masculine contribution to the "other" in addition to feminism, such as chavinism, or playerism, or whatever you want to call it.

Why? What in my context would ever make anyone suggest that feminism is the only threat to marriage? The reason why I mentioned feminism, is because it is what I believe Debbie Maken and Albert Mohler are overreacting against. Hence, it was what I thought was the most relevance to a blog such as this.

Adam,

Great points. Ultimately it's about what's in (or isn't) in a person's heart. I believe in marriage as God established it. But God-honoring marriages are few these days and honoring God has been replaced by honoring what society believes about marriage.

And following what society believes about marriage might more accurately be described as 'the blind leading the blind'. I do believe what God has for marriage is far superior to what society has. Challenge is, does the other person have that same belief and practice it?
